Christmas Sprite

Whimsy Stamps have three new fairies in this month’s release, and on today’s card I’ve used Christmas Sprite.  The sentiment is from the You’re My Jolly clear stamp set.  I made a couple of poinsettias with the Lily Flower Die Set.


I used the following copic markers to colour the Sprite

Hair E27
Skin E04, 11, 21, 00, 000, R20
White: C3, 1, 0, 00
Red: E09, R46, 24, 22, 00
Green BG99, 96, 93, 40
Gold: YR27, 24, 21. Y11


I adhered some glass glitter onto the flowers and berries for a frosty look.  I die cut the leaves and berries from card and gold glitter card.

Love those little snowballs!  They got a coating of glitter for even more bling, gotta have bling on Christmas cards lol


I picked up the paper pad from The Range, love red green and white together.

CAS Christmas

Don’t the months roll around way to fast?!?  It’s Whimsy Stamps release time again and this time I’ve gone with a quick and easy CAS Christmas card with a bit of stamping and a die cutting. 

I stamped the Snow Flurries background stamp onto white card and heat embossed with white EP.  Then I applied some Pumice Stone Distress Ink with a blending too.  The Christmas die was cut 3 times from white card and once from brown glitter card and layered together to give some dimension.  I finished off with some die cut Christmas trees in white and glitter card which got some pearl “baubles” on them.

Anna the Fairy

Oh how I love these fairies from Whimsy Stamps, and Anna the Fairy is one of my favourites.  Couple them with pink and pretty and I’m in my happy place!  As I did with my last card, I stamped and heat embossed the background stamp – Galaxy Galore – on to patterned paper.  The paper is by Lemoncraft.  This stamping over the lightly patterned paper makes for the most delish background and toned down the pink too. 


I coloured the image with copic markers, and used these colours:
Skin: E04. 11, 21, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E23, 53, 51, 50
White: C3, 1, 0, 00
Pink: RV34, 32, 00, 0000


I made the poinsettia from foamiran using my Lily Flower Die Set. I die cut some holly leaves from silver glitter card – I used the Christmas Branches die set to do this.


I gave the chipboard bauble a coat of white paint and stickles then popped a sentiment on from my all time favourite Christmas sentiment stamp set – Holiday Mini Sentiments.


I LOVE making Christmas cards, because I love overloading my cards and this is the perfect excuse lol.
