So what did I make for this week? I made two things :)
First I'd like to show you my Magic Card:
I really fell in love with this rubberstamp the moment I first saw it! Say hello to: "Jolly Xmas Kitty" from Penny Blacks holiday collection back in 2008. Thank you so much "Skibban" for sending it to me <3 The Kitty is colored with Promarkers.
I distressed edges and glued panels together. I wanted the image to stand out and be the main focus, so I kept the card mostly white.
The inside is kept simple, but elegant. Stamped sentiment and diecutted it using Go Krate frames. Then stamped bells in the upper corners og the writing area. The bellstamp is from Penny Black.
Sentiment from Storyteller saying Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Next, my Finnish Star
This is such a beautiful paperstar, so easy to make and extremly decorative.
All you need is 12 paperstrips and glue :) I learned to make this many years ago, and I have done some mistakes on the folding here. So I found a tutorial here if you want to try, and not doing my mistakes ;)
In the center I have colored a little cute mouse from the Robins Christmas stamp set. The image is layered upon two snowflakes I die-cutted and treated with Ice Resin last year. Thats why the paper seems transparent. Very cool effect :)
This is how the star looks without extra decoration.
What I have used:
Stamps from Penny Black "Jolly Xmas Kitty", mouse from Robins Christmas stamp set, bells from Holly Jolly stamp set
Sentiment from Storyteller
White and red Bazzill
Martha Stewart borderpunch
Sizzix dies (misteltoe leaves on front of card)
Pearls from Kort & Godt
Promarker colors used:
Reds: Henna, Walnut, Firebrick, Burnt Orange
Mouse: March Hare, Umber
Shadings of white: Blue Grey 1,2,3
