Singing We Wish You A Merry Christmas Card

 

Vicky is here today with a cute Christmas card.
I think these girls are so cute and perfect for wishing you a Merry Christmas. 
The first one I stamped was Snow Girl Waving, and I colored her with a red jacket.
Then I stamped Snow Girl, and I colored her in purple.
I masked the edges of both girls and then
I stamped Snow Girl Sitting, and she is in pink.
The Street Light came next, and the saying, We Wish You.
I drew the sidewalk, used applique and puffed it up, and added glitter.
This card would be cute with just one of the girls.

So happy you stopped by! Vicky

Magic and Bright Minion Christmas Card

Hello crafty friends! Ericka here and I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Today I have a fun Christmas card I made using Bob the Minion with and fun Santa Hat

 
I started by stamping Bob and masking the top to add the Santa's Hat stamp. I colored it all up with some watercolor markers and then added the Snowflakes and heat-embossed the with a Turquoise powder for some fun sparkle. I then added some light shading around the card with Distress Oxide ink Salvage Patina and for some added fun, I used Liquitex Glass Beads as snow on the bottom of my card.

I then decided I wanted to make Bob a little more fun and stamped him and the hat on a separate piece of paper. After coloring them up, I added them to my card using an action wobble so he became more interactive.

I finished my card by adding the Magic and Bright sentiment and used some clear sparkle to heat emboss the image. I love this Santa Hat and can't wait to use it on some more of my minions to make fun Christmas cards. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!

Cool Reindeer Christmas Card

Hello Stampers, Vicky here today with a 'cool' Christmas card. Halloween and Thanksgiving are over, so now on to Christmas! The blue pocket is just a triangle with two outer edges glued.
I stamped Cool Deer and colored, cut around him, and put him on a red die-cut circle.
The die-cuts are from Spellbinder. Before I took the white card stock out of the die, I used a thin marker and went around the edges of the die.
I used the stamp, Have A Cool Yule.
I masked the work 'COOL' and stamped it on the white cutout. Then I stamped COOL in blue ink and colored over it with Copic Glitter Pen.
The snowflake is a button. I took the shank off the button and used a glue dot to adhere it.

Thanks for looking hope you enjoyed my card.

Thankful Fall Leaf Card by Martha Lucia

Hi friends, Martha Lucia here to share my favorite fall stamps in a single card. Yes, on this card, I used several stamps over a simple layer. Let's take a look:


These stamps were released a few years ago, and since then, they have been some of my favorite stamps because of the amazing textures of these stamps.
I stamped mine onto white smooth cardstock using Kaleidacolor Ink in Tomato Vine colors on this card. It let me give different tones to each image. I stamped the sentiment Thankful using VersaFine Onix Ink.

Happy Birthday Zap Card

Hello friends! Ericka here, and today I have a fun birthday card using the new Cat Sketchy stamp. I love the expression on this stamp and thought it would be perfect for a friend with a birthday this month.

I started with some distress oxide ink blending in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and Black Soot on Bristol smooth paper. I then lightly spritzed the paper and lifted off some of the ink. Once my background was dry, I used Carved Pumpkin distress spray and sprayed the middle of my background.

When the background was dry, I used the Cat Sketchy stamp along with the Birthday 11 sentiment and a coming soon speech bubble with the word zap and stamp and clear embossed them. I finished my card by coloring the cat's eyes and ears for a little fun.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!

Santa Is On His Way Christmas Card

Hello Stamper! Vicky is here today with a Santa card
How are you doing on your Christmas cards? This is an easy one.
The first thing I did was stamp the Cityscape.
Then I punched out a circle with a punch and put it where I wanted the moon to be.
The edges are sponged with light blue first, then a darker blue, and last black around the edges.
I filled in the moon using a sponge; it is not as yellow as shown on the card here.
The last thing I stamped on the front is Santa's Sleigh Sm.

I mounted the saying Enjoy The Warmth on the red card stock inside the card.

Thanks for taking a look,

Magic and Bright Winter Christmas Card

Hi Everybody! I made this card with some of the older stamps from Crackerbox Stamps. They are still fabulous and just need to see some ink every once in a while.

I used patterned paper for my background and stamped the Blowing Snowflakes Tree, and the Magic and Bright sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed both. I took a grey Copic marker and drew along the tree trunk and branches and also along the sentiment to add some dimension. I took white gems and added them to the snowflakes - for the tiny snowflakes, I used Stickles. Sponged around the edges and added a silver thread.

The stamps I used:

I hope you like my card. Thanks for visiting!
Happy Stamping!
