XMAS Snowman 💗


Snømann motivet på kortet mitt er lagd av meg, og er et digistempel jeg selv har tegnet, malt med akvarellfarger og så scannet, så det kan printes ut som clipart! 'Doodle Snowman with a heart PRE-COLORED' Pyntet det litt med glitterpenner og hvit gesso da 😊
Julekortet er mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #271., der jeg er sponsor denne gang! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være

The snowman motif on my card i have drawn myself, and made into a digital stamp. But i also scanned the watercolored image, so that it can be printed out again and again as clipart! 'Doodle snowman with a heart PRE-COLORED'
Wich is what i used to make a quick card for this fortnights challenge #271. at Creative Fingers ~ where I am also sponsoring. I prettied it up with a glitter pen and some white gesso though, needed the bling bling!

Happy Holiday wishes from Creative Fingers! ❤️🎅🏻❤️

 
❤️  God Jul & Godt NyttÅr ❤️
 
Vi på DesignTeamet hos Creative Fingers ønsker alle en koselig julefeiring med noen av våre julekort til inspirasjon Vi har også en kjempeflott BloggCandy som du kan finne > her < Og i denne bloggposten hos Creative Fingers takker vi alle våre flotte sponsorer gjennom 2023 ~ meg selv inkludert! Og ikke glem å delta på vår utfordring #268. som varer helt frem til 12. januar!
 
Har brukt et eldre digistempel fra Saturated Canary på julekortet mitt. Har mere enn hundre digis og gummistempler fra SC ~ Krista Leigh Smith, som man nå kan finne på Patreon. Men flere av scrappebutikkene har enda mange av gummistemplene i salg om man leter litt!
Prøver enda å bli flinkere til å bruke det jeg har hatt liggende ubrukt i årevis ~ istedenfor å gripe etter det aller siste jeg har kjøpt.. hehe, tror vi alle er litt skyldig der...


 
 
❤️ Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! ❤️
 
Today the DT's of Creative Fingers Challenge blog is wishing everyone Happy Holidays and sharing some christmascards to delight & inspire!
Did you see our fabulous Xmas BlogCandy and our Thanks sponsors blogposts over at Creative Fingers?


My card has an adorable digistamp from Saturated Canary
❤️ I have aLOT of SC stamps both in digital and rubberstamps from years ago, before Krista Leigh Smith, the artist, moved on to Patreon. You can however find her rubberstamps still in stock in some stores if you go looking!
I am still trying to be better at using my old stash before only using the new fresh from the store stuff! I think we're all guilty of that lol 😉
