Season's Greetings

Good morning crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card featuring a digital stamp set from the LTTS Doodles Etsy Shop.


These cute images are from the Little Three Wise Men stamp set.  I diecut a stitched rectangle from bristol card and sponged it with Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered it with both white and brown acrylic paints and once it was dry I stamped the sentiment.  I colored all the images with copics and used a black gel pen on the eyes.  I fussy cut the images and adhered them to my card with foam tape.

Copics:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000
Hair - C7, C5, C3, C1; E37, E99, E97, YR21; E44, E43, E42, E41

Cheers To You

 Good evening crafty friends!  I'm sharing a box card featuring products from My Favorite Things.

I created the box with black and pink cardstock using the Outside The Box Die-namics.  I diecut the wineglasses from Neenah cardstock using the Long Stem Barware Die-namics and I colored the wine with copics.  The balloons are from the BB Beary Special Birthday stamp set.  I colored them with copics and diecut them using the coordinating die-namics.  I used a white gel pen to add highlights to all of the balloons and for the polka-dots on the red balloons.  The flag banner is from the Mice Day To Celebrate and I also colored it with copics.

I adhered all the images in the box and added a heat-embossed sentiment from the Raise A Glass stamp set to the front of the box.

Copics:

Red - R59, R39, R37

Pink - RV55, RV52, RV02

This adorable girl is from the Pure Innocence Straight To The Point stamp set.  This stamp set is no longer available but there are lots of other sweet Pure Innocence girls on their website.  I followed both the MFTWSC 628 sketch and MFT Color Challenge 203 for this card.  I colored the PI girl with copics and then diecut her using the coordinating die-namic.  I cut layers of kraft and white cardstock and sponged Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink on the smaller white panel.  I adhered the girl with foam tape.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Warm Wishes

Happy Friday crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card using some new-to-me products from My Favorite Things.


I love making Christmas cards but tend to hold off until November each year to start making them.  I'm going to try to make more Christmas cards throughout the year since I enjoy them so much.  I heat-embossed the Snowflake Flurry Background with white embossing powder on bristol card and sponged it with Chipped Sapphire, Broken China, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks.  I diecut the panel with a stitched rectangle and adhered it to my card front.  The sentiment is from an older Mama Elephant stamp set.  I diecut the Coffee Mug Die-namics from Neenah cardstock and colored it with copics.  I diecut a snowflake and adhered it to the mug.  I diecut some candy canes and marshmallows from dies in my stash and colored them with copics.  I adhered all the images with foam tape for dimension.


Copics:
Coffee Mug/Candy Canes - R39, R37, R35; C3, C1, C0
Marshmallows - E41, E40
