Santa’s Little Friends!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is another one of the digital images I won from Di’s Digital Downloads.  This one is called “Santa’s Little Friends”.  As usual I colored this image using Copics and I added clear glitter by Martha Stewart to the hat and the effects for the snow.  The doily in the background is a die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The reindeer is a Fiskar border punch.  The designer paper is from the Mint Twist paper pad by Kaiser Kraft.  Ribbon and gems by Crafts.

This cute little image is called “Carry Me”. It was one of a few I had won from  Di’s Digi Downloads.  She has lots of gorgeous images and it was hard to chose the images I had won.  I used Copics to color the image.  I used the Ice White pearl pen to add the snowflakes and the Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the sleigh and the snow.  The two die cuts are by Spellbinder.  The designer papers are from two different paper pads.  One is Lilac Avenue Collection by Kaiser Craft and the other is Botanical Tea by Graphic 45.  They’re not Christmas papers but go well for this holiday card.  The embossing on the panel was created using the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder.  The snowflake is a Doo-hickey die.

Here is the inside of the card with a French holiday greeting.

I’ve used “Elfie Boo’s Christmas Lights” image and she is simple too cute for words!  I used Copics to color the image and then used the Spellbinder die to cut and layer her.  The tag is also a Spellbinder die.  I made the flowers using two Martha Stewart punches and red vellum paper.  The branches were also made using a McGill punch.  Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Calories Don’t Count!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a digital image from Rick St. Dennis and it’s called “Eggnog Anyone” it’s part of the Nimbleknees Gherkin Creepmas Elves.  I love throwing in the creepy every now and then…lol.  It can’t always be cute!

This is a more simpler card.  I feel all the bells and whistles don’t go so great with this creepy elf.  The image was colored with Copics and then layered on cardstock.  The sentiment was a freebie from Create With TLC and I used the Spellbinders ornament die to frame it.  The designer paper I’ve had for a while and I can’t remember who it’s by.  I used a white gel pen to outline the clothing on Nimbleknees.  Then a bit of glitter and some red pearls to finish the card!
