Ya Don't Say

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card featuring a new image from Sassy Cheryl's.

This image is called Ya Don't Say.  Love that cute snowman with his sweet little birdie friends!  I printed the image on Neenah and colored it with copics.  I used a black glaze pen on the bird's eyes.  I kept my card very clean and simple by only adding a sentiment.  I used a Christmas sentiment but this image would be great for birthdays, missing you, or just because.  Be sure to stop by Cheryl's shop to check out all the beautiful digis she has.

Naughty or Nice?

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card using an adorable stamp and die set from Pink & Main.

This adorable Santa is from the Nice List stamp set.  I colored the Santa with copics and then diecut him using the coordinating Nice List Dies.  I used a die to cut the dome shape and then sponged on some distress inks for color.  I used a black glaze pen on Santa's eyes, and added Glamour Dust to the "fur" on his suit.  The fun papers are from Pink & Main's Jolly 6x6 paper pad.  I adhered the Santa with foam tape and then added some Nuvo drops for embellishment.

Baker's Assistant

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card featuring a sweet image from Sassy Cheryl's

This image is called Baker's Assistant.  That adorable dog cracks me up!  She looks exhausted, doesn't she?  That's pretty much how I feel after I do Christmas baking lol.  Even though I used this image to make a Christmas card, it could definitely be used for other occasions.  I printed the image on Neenah and diecut it with a stitched rectangle die.  I colored the image with copics and added some polka dots to the baking bowl using acrylic paint.  I used a white pen on the pup's nose and then added Glossy Accents.  Be sure to stop by Cheryl's shop to check out all the beautiful digis she has.

North Pole Pals

Good morning!  Wow, can you believe it is December?  You know what that means ... Christmas will be here before we know it!  So, I have another Christmas card to share with you today.

This adorable Santa and his reindeer pals are from Avery Elle's North Pole Pals stamp set.  I bought this set last year and never got around to inking it up so I HAD to make sure I found time to play with it this year!  I stamped the images onto Neenah cardstock and then masked them.  I used Evergreen Bough and Cracked Pistachio distress inks, along with the My Favorite Thing's Drifts & Hills stencil to create the background.  I colored Santa and his reindeer with copics.  I used a black glaze pen on their eyes and on Santa's buttons.  I used my white gel pen to add a few highlights and then added some Glossy Accents to the reindeer noses.  The little snowflake was frosted with some Glamour Dust and then I added an enamel dot to finish it off.

Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Moustache & Beard - C3, C1
Reindeer - E33, E31, E30, E50, R20 and E43, E42, E41
Deer Noses, Hooves, Santa Boots - N8, N6, N4
Red - R59, R37, R35, R24
Green - YG17, YG03, YG01
Fur on Santa's Coat & Hat - W2, W1, W0, Colorless blender
