Santa Through the Window

Hi Everyone this week at Holly Jolly Christmas challenge we are having a challenge just for the jolly old elf Santa. So any card that has Santa on it will work. for my card I have used an image from our sponsor called Santa in the Window, yeah, it is a small picture of Santa, but he is on is sleigh riding through the sky in the night with a small child watching. Anyway the image is sweet and can be found at our Sponsor this week The Stamping Boutique, it is called Santa Through the Window.
I have made it into a simple card, as the image is complete as is, but I thought I needed to dress it up a bit, so I added the garland with the gingerbread people, and then added Dazzling Details from Stampin Up to the moon and the stars. just to give it that glitz factor for Christmas, then the sentiment is from Stampin Up from the stamp set called Festival of Trees.
Thanks for looking

Merry Christmouse

Hi All, This week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge we have a Buttons and Bows challenge for you. We have some great sponsors and for my card I am using an image from Bugaboo called Mouse Present. Isn't it sweet, love these mouse images she has come out with. I have used Copics to color the image, and have cut out with Oval Framelits from Stampin Up. I have used Be of Good Cheer Designer paper, the ribbon is the stitched Raspberry Ripple and the buttons on the card are from the regals pack of buttons, and I added pearls to the centers of them. Thanks for looking

Button/s and Bow/s

Hi Everyone a new challenge this week at Come and Get It, is Buttons and Bows. We have three, wonderful Sponsors this week A Day for Daisies, Oak Pond Creations, and Limited Runs Stamps.
I am using the image called Pearls in my Hair from A Day for Daisies, A beautiful image.
I have used the sketch from the Sketch Wednesday from Outlawz Challenge as my inspiration.
I have used designer paper from Stampin Up, from the Old Sweet Pea Collection, The Buttons are the old regal buttons in Cherry Cobbler, and the Satin Ribbon is Chocolate Chip also from Stampin up. The sentiment comes from the stamp set Label Love, and I have used the coordinating artisan punch to punch it out. the image was cut using spellbinders circle die.
Thanks for looking

Christmas is Coming Soon

I made a card similar to this one, but in different colors, and sentiment a while back, but I just love this elf, and all the other ones that are in the Make It Crafty store. I have colored this guy with copics, and just just trimmed down the paper, added the sentiments which are from the Petit Pairs set from Stampin Up, and layered him onto a gift card that I made, Quick and simple card once the coloring is done. Thanks for looking.

Poinsettias

Here is my card for this weeks challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, we have a really simple challenge, and that is to use a die. I have used the Label Framelits dies to cut out the image after coloring it with Copics. The beautiful Poinsettia Image is from A Day For Daisies, one of our sponsors this week. I have used some different papers one is from a Christmas stack I have and the other is from Stampin Up a few years ago called Candlelight Christmas, I have also used the Stamp Set Jolly Jingle Bits for the tree and the sentiment is part of the Merry Christmas sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I punched it out, and then added it to a 1.5 in button, the twine was used as a decorative touch under the button, and for finishing the card I have used perfect pearls in gold in the corners as well as the centers of the flowers.
Won't you come and join us, as I am sure everyone is in need of Christmas cards and wanting some new images to work with.
Thanks for looking Cindy
