I do make lots of Christmas cards but I don't want to make the same design twice, so all the great challenges around help me with new ideas. Here I combined stamps from 3 sets, coloured with Promarkers and with added glitter pen and glitter paste.
I read this book when it was fairly new in the 90s but I've seen the film several times since then and I must confess that I'm not sure which bits were in the book and which were just in the film! The Christmas jumper , worn by Mark Darcy, for example : was that in the book? Well, it was part of the inspiration for my card above.
I was inspired by some challenges to make this card - I always like a rain theme and a bit of paper-piecing. The girl and dog are all one stamp and the sentiments are from the same set. The paper was an old freebie - it's a long time since I bought a paper copy of a craft magazine but I still have plenty of freebie papers! The rain was added with an embossing folder.
The current challenge at The Library is The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and I made an extra card - it was supposed to be in the Reminder post but I didn't get it finished in time!
In fact this is The Lion, The Donkey and The Squirrel etc. The animals are all one stamp, coloured with Zig Clean Colour Markers. The sentiment is from another set and I spray the card with yellow ink and added black enamel dots.
Just a quick post to link up this card I made at the weekend using the sketch from Case This Sketch. Not sure why I took the photo from that funny angle! The eyeball-looking-thing top right is actually a clear gem and I used dots of glitter glue on the snowflake panel.
For my DT card, I went zigzag crazy. I made a stepper card base (which in itself is just a zigzag of card) . I chose an image of a polar bear with zigzags on his outfit, I stamped chevrons and added some orange zigzag washi tape. I hope you'll join in the challenge.
