Little Drummer Boy & Friends with Winter Wonderland Background

Howdy -  MichelleO here today and if you are wondering if you remember this image from last weeks High Hopes Stamps post. Well Sort of... I pulled out the new release Little Drummer Boy & Friends to play with this week I still had the Winter Wonderland Background on my desk from my card last week. I sat the Drummer boy on the background image just by accident... and then had to stamp them together! That background stamp is a favorite and it works wonderfully with so many images!


Cute right?? I colored with my Copics (colors below) after masking off the drummer and friends then stamping the background over him. I had lots of fun again with my Marvy Snow Marker and then LOTS of Viva Decor Glitter Pen. For my card I went with simple colors light blue for my base, Fiber paper that I frayed on the edges and then the black is actually where I went around the edges with a black copic. A fun older sentiment worked well with this stamp.

Here is an angled photo to show off all that bling snow!


Copic colors used -

Imagine a whole collection of different Christmas Cards all with different images centered!! Oh.. ideas brewing!

Winter Wishes!

Howdy!
As I mentioned before, I love Snowmen and it just doesn't get any cuter than the High Hopes "Winter Wishes Snowy" rubber stamp! I love the country feel to this image and the heart surrounding it! 
I chose papers from the Echo Park "Tis The Season" 6x6 collection and then coloured my image to match the colour scheme!  I masked off my image, then using some Tuxedo Black and Wedding Dress White Pico Embellisher with a paintbrush I "flicked" some paint splatters around the image. It just adds a fun element to your design!
Copics Used:
R20, R22, R24, R27, R29
Y21, Y23, Y26
YG 61, YG63, YG67
T5, T6, T8
YR14, YR18

Christmas Joy

Happy Sunday!

I am working on a real cool project with the new release stamps, but it has taken me more time to finish than I thought it would, so..... to be continued.. ;)

In the meantime I've created this simple (but fun!) Christmas card!
I just love these golden oldies stamps and if you search for Santa on the website there are so many Santa (72!!) stamps to choose from!!


For this card I've used Woodland Santa together with the Peace, Love, Joy sentiment.
Together with traditional Green and Red cardstock and some lovely Chrismas dessinpaper.

Well, I'm off working on that project I've mentioned earlier!


Have a great day!

Christmas love -- High Hopes Stamps

Hi there and Happy Saturday!
Today's creation is made with ...
 A little tag for Christmas all ready to go under the tree. I used a die cut for the tag shape.  You 
can always hand cut a tag if a die is not available. 
The tree is also hand cut and I added a few branches and white acrylic paint for a
snowy look to this Winter scene.
Pine, pine cones and a textured brackground were all used here!
This owl was coloured with Copic markers and I also used some candy cane twine  :) 
 I hope you'd like to join us in our Christmas/Winter Challenge, you can find all the details HERE.
