It’s Christmas again!

As you might know, I had planned on making Christmas all year round so I don’t need to stress with them by the end of the year. I’m not doing too good with that – it’s already a couple of months since my last Christmas card.

Today’s card is navy and white, with a white silhouette tree, and a background of dotted cardstock. I’ve used Mojo Monday’s sketch #496 for the layout of the card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Peace Love Joy

I take a huge leap here, from the spring card earlier today, to a Christmas card. The lovely image with the cute birds is from Slöjd-Detaljer. Peace Love Joy is from a clear stamps set that I got with a magazine a few years ago. The background is a snowflake printed overlay from Making Memories that I’ve adhered to green cardstock. I used the shetch at MFT Sketch Challenge #327 for the layout of my card:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

A shimmery Christmas

I’m supposed to be making Christmas cards all year round. Yeah, right. It’s about a month since the last one. But here’s one, finally. The entire image, with houses, Merry Christmas, and snowflakes on the left side, is from a designer paper. Unfortunately I don’t remember which brand.

I have matted the paper on brown cardstock, and then on glittery offwhite paper. I filled in Merry Christmas with Sakura Stardust gel pen. In the corners I’ve added snowflakes that I’ve punched out with Martha Stewart punches from offwhite and white glittery paper.

I submit this card to the following challenges:

 

Reindeer card

Challenge #231 at Merry Monday, was to use a reindeer on your card. I found this reindeer image in a paper pad from one of my fave brands, Stamperia. I used Mojo Monday sketch #480 for the layout.

Christmas Angel

Today’s card is a Christmas card, made for the following challenges:

Blue Christmas

Yes, here I am with today’s second card. Making this card made me nostalgic. The tree paper and the stamp are both from Inkido, a company with loads of wonderful products, that no longer exists…

Again, I have made this card for several challenges. With several, I really mean a lot! 😉

Christmas bird

I plan for a total cardmaking weekend, and here’s the first card. A Christmas card with papers (bird and background papers) from Stamperia. It’s an Italian craft supplier, making THE most beasutiful papers, and other things as well. The God Jul stamp I used are from an old clear stamp set I designed for Skapa Hobby, no longer available.

As always, I’ve used a few challenges as inspiration:

Well, both plaid, stripes and damask. The plaid and stripes papers are from a past collection from Maja Design. Snowmen image from Slöjd-Detaljer, and stamp from Kaisercraft.

Vintage Christmas

I thought I’d make today a cardmaking day. We’ll see how far I get with that. I’ve at least made one card this far. I used Merry Monday’s challenge #217 – Retro/Vintage and Mojo Monday’s sketch #469 as inspiration.

It’s Christmas time!

Every year I have the intention to make Christmas cards during the entire year, to have a stash large enough to both send and sell when it’s time for those cards. Yeah, right. This year I have obviously made ONE Christmas card, and that was during the first week in January. So, I’d better get started now.

On this card, I’ve used part of a sheet music background stamp from Artemio in the upper right corner, snowflake stamps from Kortmakaren, and the greeting stamp is from Hero Arts. All stamped images are embossed – the sheet music with black embossing powder and the rest with gold. The background is dotted cardstock. I have them in several colors but never use them. I need to change that!
