Comfort and Joy

Hi crafty friends!

I hope you are all having a fabulous day!

Today I am sharing a sweet Christmas card that I created using a new clear stamp set from

Santa sure looks comfy doesn't he? 
I created my card by creating a card base from some Kraft cardstock and then covering the front with a piece of red patterned paper from the Gentle Winter 6x6 Paper Pad. I die cut another piece of Kraft cardstock out using a scallop die, placed it on my card and then layered a strip of white and green patterned paper from the Christmas Holidays 6x6 Paper Pad along the bottom. I stamped that adorable Santa from the Santa's Treats Clear Stamp set and colored him with my Copic markers. Once I had him colored, I used the coordinating die to cut him out. I thought it would be fun to paper piece his blanket so I used more of the white and green patterned paper and added some shading & definition with some green copics. I stamped my greeting, die cut it out and adhered it to a piece of red cardstock. I added some red satin ribbon to a piece of white cardstock, adhered it to my card front and popped up my Santa and sentiment with some foam tape. I completed my card with a little bit of white stickles to his hat and whipped cream and some white doodles with my gel pen. So cute!!! It is really sunny in my area today so my ribbon is photographing a lot brighter than it really is. It is actually more along the shade of the sentiment banner. Sorry about that. 

Copic Colors Used:
--Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20--
--Hair: C00, C0, C2--
--Boots/Belt: C4, C6--

Sending Christmas Cheer

Hi friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous day!

Today starts a new challenge over at the

Here is a look at the card that I created:

I got this adorable little truck from Spellbinders a couple of months ago and I have been itching to use it! I'm not sure what it is about the red trucks and the holidays but I'm a bit obsessed lol! I started by covering my cardbase with some plaid patterned paper and adding a strip of green cardstock to the center. I die cut a white stitched panel and stamped my greeing with some Versafine ink and added it to my card front. I built my truck and popped it up with foam tape to the card and added some glossy accents to the tree ornaments, headlight and bumper. I also added some black enamel dots to act as the tire rims. I finished my card by adding some doodling with a black Micron pen. Super duper easy!

Christmas Joy

Hi crafty friends!

I hope you are all having a fabulous day!

Today I am sharing a sweet and simple Christmas card that I created using a new stamp set from

Aren't those little Wise Men the sweetest??
I knew I wanted to make a simple card when I saw this stamp set so that the focus of the card could remain on the images and sentiment. I started by ink blending a night sky and adding some yellow for the glow of the star. I splattered some gold metallic watercolor onto the background and then set that aside to dry. While that was drying, I stamped the three Wise Men from the Oh Holy Night stamp set, colored them with my Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I created an A2 cardbase from some white cardstock and adhered the night sky panel.  I layered some gold foil cardstock and white cardstock together, used a circle die to cut out an opening for the night sky to show through, stamped my greeting and popped it up onto my card front with foam tape. I heat embossed my star with some gold embossing powder, used some more of the gold metallic watercolor to color it in and popped it up with more foam tape. I completed my card by adding those adorable Wise Men.
So simple and sweet!

Copic Colors used:
**Wise Man #1**
 Hair: W3, W7, 100. Skin: E53, E55, R20. Outfit: Y26, G21, YG63, G46, V15.
**Wise Man #2**

Merry Christmas Snowman Card

  Hi friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Can you believe it is December 1??? 
The first of the month means it is time for a new challenge at 

Here is a look at the photo inspiration for this month: 

The picture is for inspirational purposes so if the picture doesn't strike your fancy, you can enter a WINTER themed project. The picture is purely optional.

I was inspired by a few things in the photo. The snowman, the red bird, the snow and the plaid on Santa's bag.  So many possibilities with this picture!

Here is a look at the card that I created:

I started my card by creating a white card base and covering it with some plaid patterned paper. I added a strip of red cardstock down the middle and added some doodled lines around the perimeter using a black sharpie pen. I stamped my image from Gerda Steiner with some black ink and used my Copic markers to color it in. Once I had it colored, I used a oval flourish die to cut it out & popped it up onto my card with some foam tape. I used some of the same plaid paper to paper piece his little scarf and hat band. I stamped my greeting with some black ink & used a fishtail die to cut it out. I cut a piece of red cardstock with the same fishtail die and just added the ends so that it helped the sentiment stand out a bit. I finished my card by adding some snowflake sequins and some white Nuvo drops to act as falling snow and some glossy accents to his coal buttons.

Copic Colors Used:
--Snowman: B0000, B000--
--Hat/Buttons: C3, C5, C7--
--Holly: R27, R89, G46--
--Broom: E33, Y26, E37, E39--
--Bird: R23, R27, R39, C5, G05, G07, YR12--
--Carrot: YR12, YR14--
