ABC Christmas reminder

 There is still time left to join our current challenge at ABC Christmas, theme is
W for wreath and/or X for xoxo.

Here's another wreath stamp that is a joy to colour.  The leaf stamp I put on the inside of the card is from the same set, so are the sentiments. I think they are bought on Temu which is a place I am careful with since they have a lot of stamps copied from originals but I got this as a gift so it is what it is. Nevertheless, I absolutely love the stamp set and I will probably use it a lot!

Winter cabin

Got a new stamp in the mail today and just had to ink it up. It's quite large so it stands for itself, I just added the sentiment at the bottom. I used huge amounts of glitter and stickles for the snow but as usual I'm crap at taking pictures of sparklies...

ABC Christmas - W and X

Time for the November challenge at ABC Christmas and we have reached the letters W and X. It is Lynda's turn to host and the letters stand for

W for wreath and/or X for xoxo.

I chose a wreath stamp from Powerpoppy stamps, coloured with distress inks. Those digistamps are such a delight to colour, I just have to make sure I wait until the printer ink has fully dried so it doesn't bleed.

The prize for a lucky winner is:

ABC Christmas reminder

 There is still time to enter our U for Use it up or V for Vertical - challenge at ABC Christmas. I used up some glitter paper that has been lying in a drawer for way too long, making a couple of snowman lanterns for tea lights. The white paper (and the black) is a regular paper from a kids' drawing pad, cut on my Silhouette Cameo. Pattern is from Jennifer Maker. 

Other challenges:
Little red wagon - patterned paper or not
As you like it - favourite snowmen (cause these ones are sooo much fun to make and they shine so pretty with their little tea light inside)
The Holly and Ivy - A/G Christmas

ABC Christmas - U and V

New month, new challenge at ABC Christmas and we have reached U and V.

U is for Use it up and V is for Vertical

I made a tag that is vertical in itself and the window adds to that I hope. I cut out the insides of the window to show the distressed colour of the tag to get a feel of a night time view. Sentiment is computer generated. 

                            Prize for a lucky winner is a paper pad and a lovely snowflake die set. 

Other challenges:
Fab N Funky - show us some colouring
Paper minutes - Selfmade background

🎄 ABC Christmas - S for snowmen ☃️ and T for three

 The autumn is upon us and here we are again with a new opportunity for you to get your Christmas creations done ahead of time by entering our challenge at ABC Christmas challenge

We have reached S for Snowmen and T for three.

I used some penguins from Digistamp boutique, a brand that seems to be discontinued. Not a lot of colouring going on so the card was finished in no time at all. Sentiment is computer generated using a font called Botton Love Sans.

🎄 ABC Christmas reminder

 Here is a card to remind you that there is still plenty of time to enter our challenge at ABC Christmas. The theme is P for presents, Q for quick and R for robins

🎄 ABC Christmas - P, Q, R

 I am hosting the August challenge at ABC Christmas where the theme is

P for Presents 🎁

Q for Quick 🏃‍♀️

R for Robin 🐦

and I think the LOTV stamp with robins in a tree was perfect for it.

I masked of a circle for the moon and used distress oxides to create the night background. Then I stamped the image and coloured it with distress inks. Some grey watercolour around the edges of the tree to make a shadow, some liquid pearls as snowflakes and puffy paint on the ground finished the card. 

I have a clearstamp set for a lucky winner so hurry over and join us this month!
