Candy Cane Bear


Hi :) I have another Christmas card for Mo's Digital Pencil to share today.

If you're like me and have a lot of Christmas cards to get made and not much time to do it, then this stamp is the one for you :)

This is Candy Cane Bear he is super cute but also super quick and easy to colour.


I decided to print the bear and the sentiment out separately. I used a large tag die to cut around the stamp. Then I cut out the "Hope your holidays are" part and mounted it on black card and used a "sweet" die to finish off the sentiment.  

At the top of the tag I used some gorgeous Making Merry washi tape by Simple Stories. It's something I bought recently and I fought my urge to buy the matching paper.  But using the tape really made me wish I hadn't paid attention to my logical side when I was buying.  I really wanted new Xmas paper and it is beautiful, but I didn't "need" more. So I was trying to be good :(  Anyway it did go pretty nicely with this old paper from Little Yellow Bicycle that I had in my stash.

All is bright


I have a Christmas card to share today using Lavinia Stamps and stencils.

I created the background by firstly blending on Speckled Egg Distress Oxide and then I used  Pomegranate and Peacock Feather Distress Oxide with a Christmas word stencil from kaisercraft. I then blended more Peacock Feather around the outside edge of the panel.

I stamped Lavinia stamps Berry Wreath with mini berries with Peeled Paint archival ink and black. I used the small Reindeer and Pipin also from Lavinia Stamps. 

I used gesso with a star stencil from Whimsy Stamps and added one star cut from silver glitter card.
The sentiment is from a sheet of Kaisercraft called First Noel - Calm. 

I coloured the berries with white and gold and copper sparkle pens. You can see the effect they give in the right light below.  They're very pretty :)

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :

Lavinia Stamps Challenge - woodland whispers

Ink Art Designs - anything goes

Katie and Bear

I have another Christmas card for Mo's Digital Pencil to share today.

I love, love, love this stamp!  It's called Katie and Bear. And it just might be my favourite of all of Mo's stamps :)

This was a fun stamp to colour!
I decided to take my inspiration from some cute paper I had in my stash.  It's from Carta Bella and is  called Winter Fun.  It's old but still gorgeous I think.

The beautiful sentiment comes with the stamp too :)
