Dear Santa

Hello and welcome!

Today I’m sharing a this adorably sweet image from All Dressed Up Stamps called Santa Post. She finished her wish list for Santa and is mailing it to Santa in hopes her wishes come true.

I had all my Christmas cards done and mailed out for this year, but decided I should maybe start super early for next years cards..wink wink!

I printed this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

I used a minimal print paper and added a scalloped die cut frame around her. Once the frame was glued to the image I then attached it to the card base with and extra layer of thick card stock in between.

Pretty Presents

Hi friends!

Goodness..it’s been a while since I’ve created a post! Been busy taking care of myself for a little while.

My card today showcases this little cutie from Sweet November Stamps called Christmas Pixie Evie. What a sweet image!

Honestly they all are, so I bought all of them from the November Vault release.

This darling pixie was printed on X-Press It Blending Card and was colored with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Hair: E57, E55, E53

Reds: R89, R46, R29, R27, R24
Grays: W3, W1, W0 and C3, C1, C0 (Jingle Bells)
White Gel Pen

I added an embossed layer and lots of die cuts for added dimension. I die cut the presents twice, one out of red and one out of white paper. After I decided what color the base of each present was going to be, I then cut out the bow part of the opposite color and glued it on top of the base. I added clear Wink of Stella to several of the die cut pieces to add some shimmer.

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while since I have created anything…I’ve been quite busy outside playing gardener…lol!

For today’s card I’ve joined with a few other talented ladies for Pink Gems Designs first ever Instahop over on Instagram. This handsome little dude is called Autumn Gnome.

I printed this adorable little fella on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with the following markers.

Hello crafty friends!

Welcome Little One

Hello friends!

Who doesn’t love holding a tiny baby, and the awesome smell of a new life?

I printed this sweet image on white cardstock and colored it with the following colored pencils:

~Prismacolor Pencils~
Body/Face: 1082, 1034, 942, 1012, 940, 140, 938

Nose: 935, 1058, 1056
Mane/Tail: 1082, 941, 1033, 1034, 942

I had so much fun trying to re-create the rainbow from the paper so I could use it on the front of my card. I added a few details with a black marker pen and added in other details with a white gel pen.

Thank you so much for visiting with me today!
