Christmas is almost Here!

Good Afternoon! Well, I spent all night long working on some last minute Christmas cards! I have several to post today so please bear with me!

First is a fairly traditional card with another great image from KennyK...it's called Xmas Tree.


Just another simple card! I colored the image with copics. Used a textured red cardstock for the backing and some printed paper from my stash...along with the ribbon and embellishments. The stamp was a mere 97 cents at Wal-Mart! I decided to give it a bit of "shine" by adding some glitter to the star and garland!

Next is another card featuring an image from KennyK and this sexy girl is called Helga Frost! I have to say she is quite the challenge when it comes to my copics...there is so much detail to her!


Well, what do you think? I started with a lovely light turquoise cardstock and then began to layer it with the printed snowflake paper. The silver foil paper is some I had left over from a wedding book I did and then I used a piece of white cardstock embossed with snowflakes to create something for her to "sit" on. Then I used some Tulip puff paint in diamond to help the snowflakes "pop" a bit! With the leftover turquoise cardstock I used a large EK Success punch for the snowflake along with with cardstock and added some more glitter!

Now we have "Merry Christmas One and All". The sentiment is another great Wal-Mart find and the image is a combination of two from BugaBoo Stamps! They have some really great images over there...and for a limited time all of there images are 50% off!


I think this is such an adorable image...I really hope my friend Jean likes it! I used the background and one of their "sitters" to create this little scene then colored it with copics. Again I used the light turquoise cardstock with a red & turquoise printed paper from DCWV. Underneath the image is a piece of embossed cardstock with snowflakes that I have covered in glitter! I used the same process as before to create the snowflake at the top and then used some "floss" to attach the button!

Jesus...I believe that is all I need to say right? I mean He is the Reason for the season! This adorable little image is from Bugaboo Stamps as well!

Super simple! Kraft colored cardstock, dark navy cardstock. I colored the image with copics and then added some gold glitter to the star. I used a white gel pen to create the stitching around the edges and some dark brown hemp to attach the button. The mini snowflakes were created with a mini EK Success punch!

I have a few more to post but since it seems like this post has gone on forever I think I will save them for tomorrow! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Merry Christmas!
