How adorable are Jenny and Benson, wrapping their presents? I coloured them with my copics before matting them onto these fab Christmas papers. I wanted to keep it simple so the focus was on the image, so I just added some gingham ribbon and a bow.
Its Sunday and that means it's time for a That Craft Place challenge and the theme this week is Christmas.
I used this beautiful Ditzies Designs Nativity stencil, and inked it using Chipped Sapphire distress ink. I used the Ditzies Design star stencil to create the background, simply using the Ranger embossing dabber over the stencil and then sprinkling embossing powder over and heating. I had to repeat the process a couple of times to get the card covered. Finally I stamped up the Visible image sentiment in chipped sapphire distress ink.
I love a contemporary colourway to Christmas cards, and broken china and seedless perserve are my current favourite inks. I stamped up and took a little ink off the Gaudete background to create a more vintagey effect, before adding an embossed snowflake panel and some ribbon. I stamped a snowflake from the Enchanted Snowflakes set in broken china and added a pearl to its centre. Finally I stamped the Vintage Merry Christmas in broken china and added it. You can buy the Gaudete background, Vintage Merry Christmas and the Season's Greeting sentiment as a set as well as separately.
And for more inspiration don't forget to check out the Visible Image's facebook page, and the Visible Image blog where we have a monthly challenge. This month's theme is Christmas - so a perfect excuse to get some last minute Christmas cards made. You do need to use a Visible image stamp on your creation to be eligible for the £30 voucher prize.
Today its time for a new challenge over at the Visible image blog and December's theme is Christmas, so we want to see lots of festive cards and possibly lots of glitter and sparkle.
I used 2 fab stamps from the Christmas selection of Visible image Stamps - Christmas Collage and Snowman Jack. I stamped the Christmas Collage out in turquoise ink and added glamour dust to the trees. Having stamped and coloured Snowman Jack in using my copics, I cut him out and added him using 3d foam pads. I added a bit of stickles to him to make him frosty.
You can find all the Christmas stamps HERE ... as well as some amazing new stamps HERE.
I went for a Christmas card - really need to be getting some made!! I love this image, Sammy and Me. Having coloured it using my pens and contemporary colours, I matted it onto a selection of Bo Bunny papers. I kept it all quite simple, just adding some ribbon and flat backed pearls.
I coloured this adorable iamge in using my pens - I went for more contemporary colours rather than the traditional red/green. I used papaers from a couple of Bo Bunny pads and simply added some ribbon and pearls.

I love Molly, she is so mischevious with that teddy - wonder if its her's??!!! I coloured her in using my pens, and then went for bold polka dots - she's a bold kinda girl!! I added some black organza ribbon and red spotty grosgrain ribbon, and some card candi.
I used Clayton from Visible Image, and coloured him using my copics. I used Lisa's own brand of stencils, Ditzies Designs, to create the background. I used barn door and faded jeans distress ink, and moved the star stencil around to get full coverage. I added some raffia lace for a bit of texture and stamped out the sentiment from Ditzies Designs.
You can find all these products and much more, either at Lisa's website - That Craft Place, or on the facebook group.
