Reindeer and a tree - Merry christmas - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a christmas card with cute reindeer.


This time I made a christmas card with the stampset Reindeer and a tree from Gerda Steiner designs.


I stamped a couple of images from the stamp set Reindeer and a tree from Gerda Steiner designs and then I coloured them all with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. Then I fussy cut all the images. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 42 from Crealies I die-cut a square from white cardstock. I die-cut a square with the same size from red gingham design paper from the Tiny check brights paperpad from My favorite things. With the Crea-nest-lies XXL 49 from Crealies I die-cut a couple of circles in different sizes in the square from white cardstock. I adhered the white square with foamtape on the red gingham square and then I adhered them both on a white card.


Then I placed all the reindeer, the tree and the christmasornament in all the circles. I had to cut parts from some of the animals away to make them fit in the circles....Sorry reindeer. ;) I stamped a sentiment from the set Tiny type from Clearly besotted stamps on black cardstock with versamark ink and then I embossed it with white embossingpowder. I coloured all the noses from the reindeer and the christmas ornaments with the Glitter gloss pen from Nuvo and then I applied glossy accents on them.

Guest Design - Coffee Monster by Anika Lerche

Hey stampers, Anni here!

I am so happy to be back as a guest designer this month.

Coffee and monster? Hello? Couldn't get much cuter than that, could it?
I couldn't decide which monster to use - so I used three of the four in the set. I just left the fourth out because there wasn't enough room on my card left - it is super cute, too! These two things are included in the set Coffee monster that I used for my card.


I started by stamping the monsters with a black ink and coloured them with coloured pencils - my favourite colour medium. When you finish the colouring the black lines aren't really black anymore. Previously I went over the lines with a black pen. But I learned a great trick: If you leave the stamps in your stamping tool you can easily stamp them again after colouring - this time with a really black ink like Versafine! Fast, easy and a really good effect!


Because of the cuteness of the monster I decided to keep the rest of the card simple. I die cut a stitched rectangle from white cardstock. I created a floor by ink blending a LITTLE bit of grey ink for the monsters to sit on. Then I stamped the sentiment and assembled the card!

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend.

Bear Hugs & Pies | by Anna Sigga

I just adore the bears in the More than Pie stamp set and they do make the prettiest cards.


Bear, hugs, and pies are a great combo for a card for that special someone and what better way to show a friend that you care than with a bear hug. 



The pie is filled with fresh red berries so why not use the same color combo for a background. PLus the pink splatters kinda mimic the pie.



Thanks so much having me as your guest, I have loved every second.
