Little Polar Bear

I just had to get this image – Polar – from LOTV’s new release on Friday, and apart from this card I’ve made 2 shaker tags with him.  I love blue and white Christmas cards – they look so crisp and frosty – rather like our garden when I got up this morning… not surprising as it was zero degrees….!!  I spread Stickles Sprinkled Sugar on Polar,  fussy cut around him, and put him inside a circle of blue and white stars.  I added part of a Memory Box Frostyville border, some die cut trees and 2 snowbanks – all glittered.  The large snowflake is from Toga and the small ones are punched.  The sentiment is embossed with silver and the silver twine and blue pearls are from my stash.

Christmouse Pudding Mice

I’ve just come in from working in the garden – and I was almost too hot.  It’s hard to believe we’re almost at the end of November and it will soon be Christmas…!!

On this card I’ve used Christmas Pudding Mice from LOTV.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut around it with a Tattered Lace die.  I sprayed the green paper with Spray and Sparkle and cut around that with the next size up die.  I added Glossy Accents and a pearl to the poinsettia, which is die cut from the red paper.  The sentiment tags are from LOTV and the ribbon is from my stash.

Christmas Snowman with Mouse

I’ve used this fun LOTV image,  Christmas Snowman again, in a different colour combo.  I coloured it with Promarkers, and and cut around it with a Tattered Lace die.  I added Stickles Frosted Lace, Imagination Crafts Detail Sparkle, which sadly doesn’t seem available anymore, and Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels.  I dotted Liquid Pearls around the image and added Glossy Accents to the holly berries.  I don’t have a stamp for Joyeux Noel so I used a LOTV Christmas Grungy Message stamp – Noel – and embossed it in silver.  The ribbon trim is another from Lidl – there were so many gorgeous colours and designs I was spoilt for choice.

Snowman Peeker Tag

My tag uses the fun image – Snowman Peeker from Bugaboo Stamps.   I coloured him with Promarkers, glittered around his face and side, and added Glossy Accents to the holly berries.  I fussy cut around the snowman, and put him leaning out from a piece of snowflake embossed card, to which I added spots of glitter – but unfortunately I couldn’t capture the glitter on my photo.   The stars are die cut and glittered with Stickles Star Dust, the sentiment tags are from LOTV and the bells and twine are from the Ribbon Girl.

Christmas Snowman

I have another Christmas card to share and this one is Christmas Snowman from LOTV.  I coloured the image with Promarkers, dotted liquid pearls around it and placed a  Polkadoodles die cut around part of the image.  The die cut, the snowflake and the “snow”are glittered with Stickles Frosted Lace.  The papers are distressed around the edges, the sentiment is from LOTV and the holly charm and twine are the from Ribbon Girl.
