Cheeky Little Elf!

Cheeky Little Elf (Avery Elle)

I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again for my final DT post of the year. We’ve definitely seen the wintry weather here this week so I have one more Christmas card to share with you this year. My card today features this cheeky little elf from the Avery Elle Elf-Tacular set (which just so happens to be on sale now if you want to grab yourself a bargin)! If any of you still are in that last minute panic, this might be a good design to reproduce multiples of. It’s also a good design to give to a male relation, friend or colleague.

I started out with an A6 white card base and stamped the MFT Bold Diagonal Stripes Background using some Lawn Fawn Jalapeno ink. This is a wonderfully festive bright green and I love the texture when I stamp on my slightly rougher card stock.

Setting aside to dry, I stamped out the cheeky little elf hiding in his present from the Elf-Tacular set in some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink so I could colour him in with my alcohol markers. I stuck to festive shades of green and red, with some light browns for the box. I then cut him out with the coordinating dies.

I chose one of the MFT Inside & Out Stitched Circles that centered the elf perfectly. and cut it out of some Chilli Pepper cardstock. I also trimmed down a thin strip of Black Licorice cardstock so I would have something to mount the circle to the background. A little bit of foam tape helped the little elf pop in the centre of the card.

Don’t you just wish you could find a cute little helper elf in one of your presents on Christmas Day?

 

Amazing Yeti Hugs with Mama Elephant and Altenew

Amazing Yeti Hugs (Mama Elephant)

Hello and happy Wednesday! I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with a big yeti hug!

Today I challenged myself to use a Christmas/Winter themed stamp for a non-Christmas themed card. I love the cute yeti from the Mama Elephant Me and My Yeti stamp set and the one with his hands spread wide makes me think he’s wanting to give you a hug!

I started out with a piece of rasberry cardstock that was slightly smaller than my white A6 cardbase. Using a sentiment from the Altenew Amazing You set to stamp, I stamped it in a repeating pattern across the panel with some Versamark ink. I then heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder and adhered the panel to the cardbase.

For the secondary panel, I blended on some Distress Oxide inks onto some white cardstock and dropped some clean water onto it to give it that distressed look. Once dry, I cut it out with the smaller rectangle of the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches dies so that I would still see the background pattern when adhered.

I stamped out the yeti from the Mama Elephant Me and My Yeti stamp set with some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and coloured him in with my alcohol markers. I then cut him out with the coordinating dies and adhered him to the smaller panel, then adhered both to the card base.

For the main sentiment, I white heat embossed two from the Altenew Amazing You set on some black cardstock. I cut this out and adhered this just under the yeti’s feet to ground him.

A final touch of clear Wink of Stella, a couple of sequins and I have a thank you card full of yeti hugs!

Thanks for reading, catch you next week.
