ABC Christmas - C and D

 Hi all, it's my turn to present the February challenge, running from today until Saturday the 9th of March. The theme is:

'C is for Cats'


'D is for Dogs'

And a lucky winner will get a $10 gift card to one of my favourite digistamp shops: 

My card today is a Lili of the Valley-stamp, coloured with distress inks and cut with a "torn paper" die.

I know it's Valentine's Day today but I'm sticking to Christmas creations, maybe I'll pop by later with something hearty - who knows đŸ’•

ABC Christmas - A and B

 I'm a day late with my first post of the year for ABC Christmas, not exactly starting on top, but I'll blame the fact that it was my birthday yesterday so I had lots on my plate.

So, we have A for Anything Christmas and B for Berries.

I used a Stamping bella image and wintery watercolours for Anything Christmas.

And a mistletoe wreath with lots of sparkling berries.

Helen, our host, is offering this great prize for a lucky winner. 

Other challenges:
Card A
Krafty Chicks - Christmas
Crafty Gals - Winter fun
Welovestamping - something new (the image and the watercolour palette are new)
Allsorts - moodboard (inspired by the squirrel and the bird)
sweet stampin - What's new with you (image and watercolours)

Card B
Christmas Craft creations - glitter and sparkle 
As you like it - favourite paper. My favourite paper is the silver backing paper that is actually a Christmas wrapping paper, it's sooo sparkly and still soft and easy to use and glue on.

ABC Christmas - Y and Z

 Not the easiest letters to end the year with, but we came up with Y for Your choice and Z for Zebra (or black and white) at ABC Christmas

For Y as Your choice I made a winter scene, using a small circle stencil for the moon, a large circle stencil for the scene and some paper strips for the mountains. The deer and trees are die cut. 

For Z as Zebra or black and white I used a stencil for the moon and distressed the card with Black Soot and added a forest stamp and a sentiment.

Pink card with reindeer:
Inkspirational - Add glitter

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!

Craft Challenge - Christmas
MTTC - Got to be Christmas

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...
