Christmas Cards Featuring Reggie & Rory

I hope your not getting tired of Christmas cards yet!  Two more have joined the Christmas card parade.

Once again I am using digital stamps by Heather Valentin.  You can find her stamps along with some awesome colouring books at Lacy Sunshine Stamps.

Watch out!  Here comes Reggie's Winter Sled.

Paper, ribbon and pearl embellishment are from my stash. Snowflake die: Giovanna Snowflake. Digital stamp coloured with Copic Markers.  I used Stampendous Winter Wonderland embossing powder to create snow and add dimension.  Crystal Stickles lend sparkle to the snow and background.  Sentiment was stamped with a clear stamp and Memento black ink. 

Rory is ready to do some decorating!  This is Rory's Decorations.

Rory is coloured with Copics and unfortunately I forgot to write down the colours used. Paper and embellishments are from my stash.  Snow flake: Giovanna Snowflake die.  I mixed Stampendous winter Wonderland embossing powder with Recollections Vintage Blue opaque sparkle for the snow and Stickles add extra background sparkle.

Standing Under the Mistletoe

I don't know anyone that doesn't like to receive Christmas cards. Do you?

With that in mind I am still in full card making mode.  I try to make all my Christmas cards but unfortunately fall short at times.  I really must start earlier.

Today's card is using a digital stamp from the talented artist Heather Valentin.  I was lucky to have been a past design team member at Lacy Sunshine and have a soft spot for her images.

Let's Start The Christmas Card Parade

Are you making your Christmas cards this year?  I have been making mine for a few years now. Some are whimsical, some are cute and sometimes a few traditional ones join the mix.

I use digital images from a variety of talented artists and the ones I have used for these cards can be found over at Mo's Digital Pencil.

Let the Christmas card parade begin!

Aren't these elves just the cutest thing!!  All embellishments and paper are from my stash of bits and pieces.  Colouring was done with Copic markers listed below.  I also used Spica Red pen and a Gold gel pen, Sparkles are stickles.

I am sure there a few out there that can relate to this.  Who hasn't precariously carried boxes of Christmas decoration and had to retrieve a few.  Coloured with Copics and touches of Red Spica pen for shine on the bulbs.  The edges of card stock were distressed.  Snowflakes are from my stash.

Sunset Limbo - Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!

Today's share is a card I am calling Sunset Limbo, made for my son's birthday.

He wanted everything to be low key despite it being a milestone 21st birthday.

I think the pub get-to-together the night before may of had something to do with that .. lol.

His dinner of choice, pizza, at home, no fuss.  Yes, we did have presents, cake, candles and singing.

I wish him many future sunset limbos, fun and good times as an ADULT.

The digital image Boozy Brian Limbo Gnome Fun is coloured with Copic markers and can be found at Lacy Sunshine. All papers and embellishments are from my stash.
