It's Christmas!!!...........

.................well ok not literally!  It's just my way of telling you that I thought I'd show you a Christmas card!  This is one of the cards that we made last time I was at The Glitter Pot using this cute Merry Bear stamp from the Laurence Collection by StampAvie along with some Penny Black Christmas Stamps - Starlit (the tree), Winter Whites and Greens (snowflakes and wording) and Snow Scroll.

The background was created by stamping the tree and snowflakes using Moonlight White Brilliance ink and the embossed snowflakes were done using the Crafts Too Snowflakes embossing folder.  All of which are available from The Glitter Pot.

No prizes for guessing that I coloured in my main image using my trusty Copics.  (Sorry can't tell you the colours I used this time as it isn't fair to those that paid to attend this class!)

For anyone that is interested in doing a Christmas based Copic class I am back again at The Glitter Pot on Saturday 13th November where we will be doing this sort of blended colouring in the morning using some cute Christmas stamps and in the afternoon I'll be teaching my new technique using Copics called Resist Watercolour.  (Look out for my Snowman project coming up in the December issue of Craft Stamper which shows this technique.)  Click here for more details on the classes.

Then on Saturday 20th November I am at The Craft Barn using Copic markers again along with the new Sarah Kay and Penny Johnson Christmas stamps. (These Craft Barn classes will be limited to a maximum of 8 people so that I will be able to devote more time to each person so you will need to book quite soon to avoid disappointment as these classes tend to be quite popular!) Click here for more details on the classes.

Lastly but certainly not least my thanks to everyone who booked on my classes this Saturday (just gone) at The Craft Barn - it was lovely to see you all and I am so pleased that you enjoyed the classes! Hope to see you again soon!

Hi Kay, I love your little bear card, especially the tree background it's perfect, really Christmassy. Hope that you're well:0) xx

I love it Kay, a real wow card for me as I love bears. The background is beautiful, still want that Starlit stamp. Great card in this month's Papercraft Inspirations, so pretty and lovely colours. xxx

Hi Kay :)
This is such a lovely Christmas card- the image is adorable and I love the rich green and red with the white ink for the background!! :)
I've been a follower for a while, since finally treating myself to you gorgeous Funky Flowers stamps (which I'd wanted for ages and love now I've got them!! :) ) and discovering the Stampman blog which led me here, but after your lovely comment on my challenge cards today, I thought it was time I said hello!! :)
hugs, Rachel x

Hi Kay

Another super card.

The little bear is coloured beautifully and the trees in the background really effective.

Hi Kay,

I really like the background on this one - thanks for telling us how you did it.

And as for the new Copic technique - well I'm intrigued, so I will have to look out for that magazine!
