Invincible Summer

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge which is "Anything Goes" aka themeless, I´ve chosen some wintery but not christmassy stamps and a few not so cool colours to go with the Albert Camus quote I´ve picked - the watercolour paper was dyed with Brusho paints, all stamps are from Oxford Impressions, and finally I´ve used crystal and cranberry coloured stickles.

And the Angels Sing

This week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge is themed "Festive Songs", and for my postcard I´ve used a copy of "In Dulci Jubile" and rubber stamps from Cherry Pie, Hero Arts, Tin Can Mail and Oxford Impressions. I just love that Leonardo Angel and I´m glad to have him as a stamp.

Holiday Trims

Marsha from Tumble Fish Studio has come out with a new kit today called "Holiday Trims". You can easily make your Holiday greeting cards with it or scrap your family photos like I did in the picture below. And as always, all images come as collage sheets in addition to the png files so that you can also make beautiful cut and paste cards with them.

Quiet Beauty

With a calligraphy project on my kitchen table right now, I´m not able to do messy mixed media pieces right now, so my entry for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Winter" is a digital card. Can´t wait to play with paints and stamps again!

Winter Wishes

It´s really time for me to get my Holiday greetings in the mail soon, and if you need some inspiration for your handmade cards, you need it NOW, so here are my last Holiday cards for you. These have all been made with Red Lead stamps and collage images. The one above has some tags messily sewn to the card, then decorated with three brads and a painted wooden word piece with a bow.
The next card uses washi tape and tiny Scrabble tiles in addition to the stamp and image from Red Lead.
And the last card below has rubber stamps only, and only in two colours, but I really like the simplicity of this design.

More Holiday Cards

I know that some of you don´t like to start with their holiday projects before December 1 - but now the season officially started, and it´s time to make your holiday cards, so here are a few simple ones to inspire you!
The card above was made with papers from Tim Holtz, a sentiment stamp from Kaisercraft and a Santa hat brad.
This one has stamps from Hero Arts and Tim Holtz and a snowman brad (those black spots are only on my scanner´s glass).
These two cards were made with papers from La Blanche, Dresden scraps and sentiment stamps from Tim Holtz. The one above has additional stamps from Red Lead, the one below has two snowflake brads.
