Jolly Friends - a Christ-moose?

This moose seems to be everybody ’s favourite image from the Jolly Friends stamp set. Everybody’s except one; I’m afraid I can’t remember who it was but they said they liked all the images apart from this one! There’s always somebody who likes to be different, isn’t there? Usually, it’s me...

These are the thank you cards I made for last month’s club order. I got the hanging hat idea from Kelly; I thought it was so cute. The images are stamped in Soft Suede, then painted very quickly and lightly (to avoid smudging) using ink pad links and a simple paintbrush. You do have to be careful though, when using Whisper White, as it’s not really made for watercolouring. A light touch is needed.

I made tent-topper cards for a change, using a quarter of a sheet of cardstock to make the “tent”, and then mounting the image on top. Very simple but quite effective.


  1. Liebe Helen,
    diese Karten sind so fröhlich!
    Liebe Grüße,
