...And I Brought Some Corn for Popping...

I was feeling all christmasy yesterday and ended up singing some carols and making a few cards.

Before I say anything else about this card I must tell, that I'm totally in love with my Tea green ProMarker. I don't know why but it seems to be always the first marker I take from my box.

Anyways... this simple card was made by using Inkadinkado stamps stamped with Versamark and embossed with silver embossing tinsel by Ranger. I added just a tad of color with that Tea green just mentioned to the bubbles and edges. The paper beneath is by my favourite brand, Cosmo Cricket.

I made a bead charm and attached it to braided silver floss. Even I do like those star beads I made a mental note to find some snowflake charms. If you've seen some, winks are welcome!

This simple card was maid mainly to test that stamp. I found it from Tiimari, a local craft chain which isn't too known for quality. I was quite amazed to find such a nice image from there.

I added some color with ProMarkers and some glitter with Sakura gel pens, stamped a few Inkadinkado snowflakes on the sides and added red cardstock ground for all three bits. Then became the hard part: finding a suitable strip of paper underneath. I'm still haven't done any actual Christmas material shopping and I didn't seem to have any suitable patterned paper. I ended up using a K&Company floral paper and hoping the pattern is too small for anyone to pay special attention to.

The last card from yesterday is featuring Door Sniffer, 11th of 13 Icelandic Yule Lads. Here he's smelling Christmas fragrances, mainly spruce. For a start I embossed green and cream cardstock with Sizzix embossing plates. Then I cut the frame with Nellie's multiframe die and distressed all green edges with Peeled paint adn cream edges with Vintage photo Distress Inks.

Then comes the non-human part. I made the cones with small punched flowers and Glossy Accent. They came out nice but took so much time that I will think twice before making them ever again. Especially when after I was almost done I found small pine cones for 10 cents a bag. I was too stubborn to buy them at that point :D

I cut some twigs with Joy!Craft -die and put the whole branch together with Glossy accent.

  1. Ihania Joulukortteja. Tykkään kovasti noista kävyistä sopivat hyvin tuon islantilaistontun kanssa.

  2. Voi että. Nyt tuli sellainen joulukorttiväkertelyfiilis. Pitää oikeasti minun yrittää katsoa kanssasi joku yhteinen päivä, jolloin voisin tulla taiteilemaan muutaman valioyksilön teille. Jos sopii, niin minä voisin käyttää sinun tavaroitasi ja sitten maksaa käyttämieni tavaroiden mukaan. :D

    Voi vain olla, että teillä menisi hieman vähemmän hermo kuin Vuoltsulla, jossa ne miljoona ja yksi kauhukakaraa, tönkkösuolatut pensselit ja muutenkin kärisneet välineet aiheuttavat pääasiassa vain harmaita hiuksia.

  3. Viliina, me meinattiin Emmin ja ehkä Marian kanssa että pidettäis yhdessä joku viikonloppu.

  4. Minä siis työskentelen nyt myös siellä kotikaupungissani, mutta jahka saan ensi kuun työvuorot, niin sitä voisi katsoa, onko siellä yhtään sellaista viikonloppua, jolloin pääsisin kunnolla kotonakin käymään, jolloin ehtisin askarrellakin. :D

    Mutta hei, minä vaikka soittelen, kun vuorot ovat selvillä ja kyselen teidän menojanne.
