Stretch your Christmas stamps!!

January 13, 2016

Hi there!!

it´s Yolanda here, from Scraping Time. I hope you had a great start of the year.
Have you seen the new Clear Stamps on the shop??? I am looking forward to starting playing with them but meanwhile, I am going to try to stretch my Christmas stamps! Yes... don´t be afraid... I am not going to show you more Christmas cards this year !!! :)

I know that there are many people that after Christmas, take the Christmas stuff and put them away till next year. But I am sure that you can use it more if you look at them with "cardmaker" eyes! ;)

For my cards, I have used some stamps from "Peeking friends" and "Snowman friends".



In my first card I used this critter that can be used for many kind of cards... Birthday cards, friendship... 
I used three diferent colours of Distress Inks for the background and then I did my panel. I die cut a false stitched square on white cardstock and I die cut a smaller one but I decided not to put it straight! I coloured the stamp with Spectrum Noir markers and I finished the card with the sentiment from Mama Elephant and some silver sequins. 



For my second card, I decided to use these cute snowmen for a Valentine's card. I love this set and it is lovely for a winter scene too! 


I show you how I made this card:





I really enjoyed playing with these two lovers!! :) 

I hope you look at your stamps twice from now on and see you soon!!

Sweet Little Owl

Hello crafty friends!

I hope your week is going well so far.

I'm popping in today to share a card with you using another adorable owl from the 'owl rather be with you' stamp set.



I decided to do something different and colour this sweet little owl in pink! I coloured her in using Copic markers and I made her extra girly by adding some long lashes with a black gel pen. I used the same pen to darken...
