Cute Snowman Christmas Card | Rox Stamps | Operation Write Home

Just sharing an ultra quick post today. 

This is a card I made for the Danish Operation Write Home, Operation Skriv Hjem
This organization makes it possible for our soldiers to send home handwritten greetings during their deployment. Volunteers are donating handmade cards to be sent out and this is one of my cards.



I have used Polychromos pencils for the colouring of Santa's bag. 

These are the colours I have used:


Star & light: 183+185
Red: 101+110+219+225
Wood: 187+280+283

Snowman: 101+154+230+232 / 124+185+186 / 199+235

The die-cut sentiment means in English "Merry Christmas".

I do not know there the image is from and what it is called, but I do believe it is a quite old stamp.


I always find colouring white objects to be really tricky. But I am fairly satisfied with the result of this cute snowman. 

Have a great day, 
Pia

Merry Christmas | Gummiapan | Clearly Besotted

Merry 2nd Advent :)

Heat embossing is something I should do more often on my cards. The look and the result is all worth it. 

Here are a couple of Christmas cards I have made...


This first card is made using Liquid Platinum embossing powder and glitter gift wrapping paper which matches the platinum perfectly. 


The second card is kept in gold. Here the glitter cardstock really sparkles!


For the tree and sentiment I have used Ranger super fine gold embossing powder. 


To give the trees a touch of colour I have added little drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Hugs,
Pia

Merry Christmas | Clearly Besotted Stamps | Turn-about Stamping | VIDEO


Here is another card I have made with the Wreath-Builder / Turnabout Stamping technique. 

This time I used several smaller stamps to create my circle stamping. 



Of the Altenew ink sets I have used the Crimson (red) and the Moss (green).

The Danish sentiment means "Merry Christmas". 



Below you see a photo of the homemade tool I am using for the stamping together with a Stamping Tool such as the MISTI. 

It is laminated (as recommended by Jennifer McGuire) so excess ink easily can be cleaned off with a babywipe. 



Here is link to the blogpost for the card shown together with the homemade tool. 

ETA: 
Here is a speedy video of how to use the DIY Wreath Builder Tool....

Have fun getting inky ;)
