Christmas ... revisited

Here is the Christmas card I gave my parents:

And here is my version of Angie's cocoa treat box as originally seen here:
I made 20 of these little guys using the advent calendar kit from Stampin' Up.  Inside each one was a packet of cocoa, marshmallows (a.k.a. "Freeze Dried Snowballs"), and a mini candy cane.  I think they turned out cute!

Christmas Greetings

I like how this turned out.  I love the little girl image from Greeting Card Kids!  I watercolored using Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Basic Gray, and Soft Suede.  The Christmas Collage makes a beautiful background on Always Artichoke.  I like the vintage look of this card!

Frosty's Visit

Frosty has come to visit via the Jolly Old St. Nick stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I used Stampin' Write Markers to color in Frosty's image:  Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Pumpkin Pie.  I used the Northern Flurry embossing folder and my Big Shot to get the snowflake image on the Baja Breeze cardstock.  As you can see, I had trouble deciding where to place Frosty so I have 2 versions of this card.  Which one do you like best?

Critter Raccoons

This layout is similar to the picture in the Holiday Mini for this stamp set.  It took me several tries but I think I finally achieved a good color combination for the little raccoons.  Once again I mounted the image on the embossed real red card.

Critter Beaver

Merry Crittermas once again with the beaver image featured today.  Isn't he a cute little fellow?!  I watercolored the image using the colored pencils and blender pen.  Another simple but cute critter card for Christmas!

Critter Squirrel

This is another image from Merry Crittermas, the squirrel.  I used Stampin' Write Markers to color in this image:  Baja Breeze, Real Red, and Cajun Craze.  The large scallop was punched from Baja Breeze and paper pierced then layered onto Cherry Cobbler.  I used the polka dot embossing folder in the Big Shot for the card background again.

Critter Kitty

Merry Crittermas is the stamp set this little kitty comes from in the Holiday Mini catalog.  I made it for the kitty lovers I know.  I watercolored with colored pencils and the blender pen and then mounted the image on real red cardstsock I ran through the Big Shot with the polka dot embossing folder.  The corners were punched with the ticket corner punch.  A simple card!

Here is a birthday card I made from the hostess set Birthday Bakery accented with Real Red and Chocolate Chip.
