Snow Bear Critter for Christmas!

Here is another card from my little series…

I love the addition of the sequins to the background with the gold stars.

I used a mixture of three distress inks to create the lovely background. Note: I finally gave in and converted to the Ranger Mini Ink blending tool.  It does work. It is awesome. Take the plunge! lol.

One Layer Card Merry and Bright!

It has been a long time since I have made a one layer card…talk about restraint!

I found this adorable Christmas tree stamp from Hero Arts. I love how you can decorate the tree in a very non-conventional way.  I’m looking forward to using it throughout the year.

I think I went a little overboard with the gold pearls.  I was planning to use a few towards the base of the tree but got a little carried away.

More cards to come!

Merry Hedgehog Kisses!

I finally got my hands on this adorable stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  It has been sold out for months! But at last…

I have made a series of Christmas cards using adorable critters and this is the first of that series! For the background, I used distress inks in a sorta non-traditional Christmas color combination.

For Mrs. Hedgehog, I used wink of stella to give a glittery coat for the holiday season.

Also, I used embossing paste to create a snowy background and I added small gold snowflakes to tie in the gold Merry Christmas sentiment! Love this time of year!

Friends Make the Holidays…

Merry and Bright! Especially, if they like to surf!

I was asked to make a custom Christmas card for a surf instructor. Using a Heidi Swapp stencil I added embossing paste and glitter for a simple background. I like how it looks like snow or bubbles.

I found these awesome surf boards from the Silhouette store. I used distressed inks and sponge daubers to color each of the boards.

For some finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the yellow surfboard and wink of stella to the green board.  My favorite part was adding in the santa hats and winter gloves!

Cowabunga Christmas!
