It is beginning to look a lot like christmas - Larissa

November 22, 2017


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and I made a new christmas card.


I made a card with the stampset Reindeer and a tree from Gerda Steiner designs. With masking paper and a lot of planning I stamped this little scene.Then I coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. I coloured the nose of one of the reindeers red and then I coloured it with the Clear Spectrum noir sparkle pen. All the other noses are coloured with the black glaze pen and then I applied glossy accents on all the noses. On a piece of white cardstock I stamped a sentiment from the stampset Santa's wonderland from Neat and tangled. With a black pen I doodled some lines on the white cardstock. I used Soap powder ink from Jenni Bowlin to make a background for the image. I used the same ink and a little snowstamp from the set Santa's wonderland from Neat and tangled to stamp little dots on the background. On a white card I adhered pink plaid design paper from the Country fair plaid paper pack from My favorite things and then I adhered the white panel with foamtape on the card.

Santa and a Kitten

October 19, 2018

This was such a fun image to color. I do have to admit, I am a dog person but, with all these adorable kitty stamps from Gerda Steiner I am slowly becoming a kitty person, too!

I colored the Santa and Kitty image with Copic markers onto 80# cardstock and fussy cut it out. I ran a black pen along the image which really helps cover the mistakes I made in my fussy cutting.
