Gnomes Filling Stocking

I love the gnome images from LOTV and this one has two of them filling a stocking.  I coloured the image with Promarkers, and added glitter glue to the holly leaves and two tiny gems for the holly berries.  The icicles, snowflake and tree are all die cut and glittered, and the ribbon and tiny snowball trim are from my stash.  The stamped sentiment is embossed and die cut with an arrow die.

Christmouse Fun

This card is for some French friends we meet at the camp site each summer.  The image is  Christmouse Decorations from LOTV  – which I coloured with Promarkers and added white pen for the dots.  The star and the die cut snowflake are glittered with Stickles Star Dust and the snow on the ground is Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels.  The small stars are die cut from silver washi tape.  The computer generated sentiment is embossed with a Versamark pen and the dots above the “e” are tiny gems.  The ribbon is from my stash.

Reindeer Peeker Tag

I used the Bugaboo digi – Reindeer Peeker – for a tag for one of our grandsons – I think he’ll like this quirky image.  I coloured it with Promarkers and a Brush Marker, used a metallic pen on the bells and added Glossy Accents to the baubles and the reindeer’s nose.  I fussy cut around the image and stuck it to a circle of Nitwits paper and a half circle embossed with small dots.  The twine is from my stash and the message is on the back.

Christmas Baubles Gift Card Holder

Last year Christmas I made gift card holders, in place of tags, for some of our grandchildren and I thought this image, Christmas Baubles, from All Dressed Up, would make a fun holder for one of our little girls.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics and added Stickles Star Dust to the baubles and the fairy wings.  The poinsettia and leaves are die cut and the sentiment and tiny stars are embossed.

Winnie Snow Shopping

This card is for our granddaughter who likes to make cards whenever she comes to stay – so I know she will look at it closely…!!  I used Winnie Snow Shopping from Polkadoodles , coloured it with Promarkers and Copics, and fussy cut around it.  I’ve used several ways of adding snow – the snowbank is embossed with a cracked ice embossing folder, the trees, cut with a die from Polkadoodles, are distressed with Iced Spruce DI and glittered with Glamour Dust and the falling drops of snow are Liquid Pearls.  The die cut icicles are glittered with my favourite  “snow” – Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels – this really glitters and covers large areas well.  The die cut stars are embossed with silver embossing powder and the ribbon is from my stash.
