Hello and welcome!
A new theme starts today at Allsorts challenge and this week it's Tracy's turn to host. She picked the theme of "From Boys to Men" and as always we hope you'll join us and share your new crafty makes with us for a chance to be entered into the prize drawing! We have two prizes this week, a digi prize of winner's choice from Ruth Hamilton Designs as well as a prize of 2 stamps from Craft Stash.
It's another Christmas card from me, I just recently got this cute stamp set - Christmas Cycling from Penny Black's newest release and I think this set is perfect for masculine Christmas cards, in fact, I think this particular stamp works well for birthday cards too especially for fall or winter themed birthday cards :)

What a great new stamp - he is so cute too. Love your design and I was thinking I must case how you used the wonky stitches die, it's also a great colour palette.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Lynn! I'm really happy how the colors turned out too!Delete
This is a very cute masculine card Ellie .. I love Buster (or whatever he’s called lol!). Love your colour palette and spattering … and is it just me or have you got the optical illusion going on again as the patterned strips seem to be behind your plain background?? Interested in your note on DI’s ..bi am just building them up and bought my first red .. Barn Door .. and I think that has hints of pink which wasn’t what I wanted it for at the time.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Pauline. I have Barn Door Red too and it's a great shade too. Candied Apples is a newer color release and it's a bit of a brownish red so it's a perfect masculine shade of red.Delete
I'm not noticing an optical illusion on today's card like I did on the recent one I posted :)
Awww - adorable Penny Black image (and I peeked at the link you gave for it).ReplyDelete
You've made a lovely Christmas card here.
Hugs, Sarn x
Thanks so much, Sarn!Delete
Glad I just checked my comments as seeing yours made me realise I hadn't visited you today, on checking your post's not showing up on my reading list. Hope it's not another curve ball from Blogger.ReplyDelete
That PB image is so cute Ellie, my youngest Granddaughter had a Dachshund and would love it, might be going onto a list.
My mistake this time that my post didn't show on your reading list. I tried to post at the correct time since you had a time change over in Europe already and we hadn't yet here, but I must have done it backwards LOL.Delete
Your granddaughter would surely love a card with these cute stamps!
That is so cute!!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!Delete
What a cute image and I love the sentiment. A fabulous design in the background with the stenciled strips too.ReplyDelete
Thanks Lorraine, can't get enough of the cute sentiment set!Delete
AAh fabulous stamp, I like this year's PB Christmas catalogue, waiting them to come here at the shops. Lovely card with pretty colouring;-))mReplyDelete
