If you have arrived here on your own and are just finding out about the blog hop you should start here: http://www.starvingartistamps.blogspot.com/

...and for the rest of you - if you've arrived here from Eva's blog, you are on the right path.

Here's what I came up with, playing with this AWESOME stamp set:Dodge the skier is having an ice day out there, LOL! The snowflake comes from the Doodle Factory winter set.
This is probably my ALL TIME favorite stamp! Isn't Dodge the funniest and cutest ever? I've colored him with Copics, but I think he'd be perfect for paper piecing aswell...so that's what I'm planning to do next time.

"A greeting for Christmas"....A quite simple card, because the stamp was so cute I wanted it to be the focal point. The sentiment stamp is from the Swedish Sentiment stamp set.

Sweet little eskimo Ande, huh? Looks like he's ready for some rubbing noses.


A few old scraps on this one, I love the striped BamPOP PP. It didn't turn out a typical Christmas card, but I hope my niece will like it anyway....and since there are lots of pinks and flowers on it, I believe she will ;)


Thought I'd give the moose Mooth a red nose, but then I realized he's not a Rudolph! Dang! Well, he got some red cheeks anyway..


This old Basic Grey PP goes perfect with the colours I gave to the seal Juno . It's always satisfying to be able to use old scraps, right?

The seal is actually easier to color than it lookes like at first. I've used Copics cool greys and brick beige, and the blender to fade it against the white.


God Jul means Merry Christmas in Swedish.

I think this cute little fox was supposed to be an arctic snow fox...but the coloring didn't turn out well so I turned him into an ordinary fox instead. Couldn't resist giving him red cheeks aswell!

For this card I've used four of the new stamps. Looking at it makes me wanting to create more scenes - and there are plenty of possibilities for that with this stamp set.

This set is already becoming one of my favourites. It's perfect for both winter and christmas themed greeting cards, very usable and versatile! It was my sweet friend Eva who suggested the theme, and this little eskimo girl is actually named after her!

Nina, you remain my #1 stamping idol. Seriously. Your coloring just astounds me. Your images always pop off the page. I don't know how you do it! My favorites are the first and last card, but they're all SO so fun!

Nina... Nina... Nina... WOW. I am in awe. These are GORGEOUS. This is your idea of simple cards? Please make some extravagant cards because I just can not imagine what they would look like if these are your simple ones! These are so fabulous. Your coloring is amazing. What I love about them most is how much depth you get out of your images and how strong you use color. Really amazing Nina!
