Winter Cards

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a nice weekend. I was at the Crafting at Ally Pally event at Alexandra Palace yesterday & had a lovely time. Apologies for there not being a blog post from me for the last few weeks, the time just got away from me. For this week's post I used Hobby Art's
Poles Apart & Winter's Snowflakes stamp sets with Distress Inks.

When I began making my samples for the September classes I wasn't ready to make Christmas cards, so I made three which would work for winter birthdays.

This one uses the Winter Snowflakes, stamped with Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet & Shaded Lilac Distress inks. I added some gold stamping & used a stamp from the Woodware
Hand Drawn Sentiments set................

The Winter's Snowflakes again, stamped with blue Distress inks & gold ink. I used another Hand Drawn Sentiment stamp & added the cute penguin from Hobby Art's Poles Apart set...........

For card number three I painted the Emperor penguins with Weathered Wood & Stormy Sky Distress inks. I made a simple background with more gold & Distress inks & added white gesso through the That's Crafty Bubbles Dinky Stencil & a Hand Drawn Sentiment stamp, stamped with embossing ink & heat set with WOW! Gold Rich embossing powder...............

  1. Great cards, I love these penguins stamps! I wish I could have gone to Ally Pally too...

  2. Hi Kirsten, ooooh I love these cards! So adaptable to either occasion or the Penguins could even be lovely for a winter wedding!

  3. Love these cards Kirsten, and love that you have used the animals not just for Christmas cards. Colours work great just using a few on one card xx
