🎄 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!

🎄ABC Christmas - N/O

The July challenge at ABC Christmas is N for No layers and/or O for Ornaments. I chose O for Ornaments and I used my bauble stencil from Poppy stamps with distress oxides in green and pink. The raindeer and trees from Lavinia were stamped before removing the stencil so that they seem to be inside the bauble. I then added some puffy paint as snow and a little glitter around the moon.

Lynda/Loopyloo is our host and she's offering a wonderful prize for a lucky winner:



Other challenges:
Christmas with the cuties - Fur or feathers

🎄 ABC Christmas - L for layers or M for mice 🐭

 It is time for our June challenge at ABC Christmas and the theme is L for lots of layers and/or M for Mice. 

I used an image from Clearly Besotted, coloured with distress inks, on a backing of die cut gold paper. It's a fairly simple card so obviously I chose M for Mice 🐭

Friendly card

 I made a card using a stamp from the set Floral Spray by Clearly Besotted, die cut with the coordinating die and coloured with distress inks in blue and green. I paper pieced the dotted paper and die cut the focal sentiment.

It's really warm and sunny at the moment, warmer than we usually have up here in May, and I figured it would be a good day to take pictures but still this photo turned out rather dark and dull. There is actually some gold on the buds and flower centers and some sparkling dust on the rose...

Challenges:

Happy little stampers watercolor challenge - A/G, optional flowers
Crafting Happiness - A/G, optional flowers
Allsorts - A/G
Get Creative Challenge - Flower frenzy
Use your stuff - technique (die cut, paper piecing, water coloring)

ABC Christmas - J and K

 It's time for a new challenge at ABC Christmas and it's my time to host it. The theme is J for Jingle Bells and K for Kissing.

I chose J for Jingle Bells with this adorable little robot holding a tiny bell, the sentiment is computer generated. I noticed that I seem to have a theme going on here, with masking the image off and smudging Distress Ink Pumice Stone around the image. It's make it pop nicely. 

The prize for a lucky winner is two Christmas inspired images from Fizzy Moon.

ABC Christmas - H and I

 Gosh, time flies... It's time for a new challenge at ABC Christmas with H for Houses and I for Indoors. I went for H for House and used this adorable bird house from Milybloom. After coloring the image with distress inks I masked it and lightly brushed on some grey ink to make the white pop. I also put some puffy snow on the roof.
