Christmas Card (21)

This will definitely be one of my favorite christmas cards at the end of this challenge.  And it was quite simple to make: I inked everything with Distress ink Tea Dye and I also stamped the background with this ink. The music stamp is from Stampers Anonymous (Tim Holtz - Joyful Song), the star from PSX (I was too lazy to use my stamp ruler, but I think it looks ok)  and the stips from Hampton Art Stamps.  I've used Distress ink Fired Brick for the Happy Newyear stamp from Magnolia. Then I took some red leftover papers to punch the border (Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch) and glued everything together!

Christmas Card (20)

Because this challenge is quite something for me, I prepared myself well with some shopping in Crafts & Things in Antwerpen :)  This large stamp 'Christmas Story' from Penny Black is one of the things I bought in September.  It's the first time I've used the stamp and I absolutely love it!

Christmas Card (19)

So far I'm doing well in this fantastic challenge, so I think I deserved a little treat:) I bought 3 new washi tapes at Pipoos yesterday, christmas themed of course!  They are from Marianne Design, but I have to admit I'm a little disappointed because there's a repeating line on both snowflake tapes.  It wouldn't be nice to have this line visible on my card, so I had to keep this in mind and cut out a part of the tape. They cost about 3,5€,  so for this price this shouldn't happen I think.

Christmas Card (18)

I saw a beautiful baby card on Pinterest and changed it into a christmas card.  Perfect for some leftovers from my Basic Grey paper pad Figgy.

Christmas Card (17)

I had to make my christmas card early this morning, because my mom and me went to Oostende today. Lovely to walk along the beach on a sunny autumn day.  I finished my card quickly and it went a little bit wrong with the last stamp: a black line from my stamping block :(  I'll give it a new try when I have more time, but it won't be today 'cause I have to leave for my evening course now: learning to recognise birds, and today it's about ducks!

A quick one 'cause I didn't have a lot of time today (and I'm afraid tomorrow will not be better)

Christmas Card (15)

This card was really bewitched: everything went wrong, so it's a miracle that the result is ok!  The first problem was drawing the line, it took me 4 attempts to get this right.  Not so easy to draw this fluently and on the right hight at the same time.  After that I started colouring the lights with my Copic markers, but clearly I didn't use the right paper and it started 'bleeding'.  I tried a different paper, but it had the same problem so I fixed this by cutting the lights out.  Finally when I stamped the sentiment, my ink pad fell on the paper.  I was a bit lucky that it fell under the sentiment, so I could cut of a part and I glued it on a red card.
