Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer - DT Tina Goodwin

Good morning! So, I started coloring some of the newly released Christmas mini stamps. I may be addicted! They make perfect cards. 

For today's card I decided to color the NORTH POLE MINI REINDEER

I colored him to look like Rudolph. I used Copic marker R30 to give the illusion of a shinning nose. 

Do you know what the difference is between a caribou and a reindeer? A caribou is wild and reindeer has been raised domesticly. Otherwise, they are the same animal. 

I learned that several years ago after moving here to Alaska. There is a reindeer farm not far from where we live. They teach people all about reindeer. You can feed them and even pet them. 

I think this just might be my favorite Christmas card this year. 

All dies used are from La-La Land Crafts. 

Copic markers used...
E43, E42, E41, E40, E29, E25, E33, E31, W10, W8, R29, R22, R20, R30

Dies used...

Thank you for stopping by to visit! Have a great day!

Santa's Vacation by Ildi

Hello to everyone, it's Ildi here and I'm happily sharing my latest card I've dreated with the adorable  Vacation Santa set.

This time I decided to create a polaroid picture look, so I only used browns and yellows for the Copic colouring. For the background I used a brick wall stencil with Barn Door Distress Oxide Ink, and splattered some white acrylic paint here and there. 

For the frames I combined some nesting dies: squares and rectangles. I attached a frame to each coloured scenes and stamped sentiments on them. 

 Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas to all!

Ice Princess by Cat

Hi Everyone! It's Cat Here

I am sharing today a card made using Paper Nest Dolls image 'Ice Princess' 
which you can purchase as a Digi or a Rubber Stamp.

At this time of year and the new film release I thought this was an apt card to make for that special princess. 

So the image has been coloured with Promarkers and White Gell Pen to create the sparkle effect.
For the back ground I have die cut 2 pieces from the First Choice 'Silent Night' paper pack. On the backing paper I die cut a small circle to create the effect of the moon. I then die cut a hill with trees,  a castle and Santa on his sleigh. and placed on top of the backing paper. On the second piece from 'Silent Night' I die cut a larger circle  for an aperture to the picture. Finally i added some snowflakes, Gems, Glitter and a sentiment

I hope you like it!

HO HO HO, Christmas Will Be Great by Ildi

Hello sweet crafty friends, it's Ildi here with a happy beach scene which is actually a festive card. 
This time I used the fun and unique Vacation Santa Set.

I've created my background from two pieces of coloured cardstock: a blue one for the sea and a light brown, almost beige textured one for the shores. 

I white heat embossed the HO HO HO sentiment on the blue panel and added some details with acrylic paint and a gelly pen. 

I've created the shore line with tearing thebeige piece of cardstock and applied white paint to the torn edge. Splattered brown Distress ink all over the light brown piece and adhered it onto the blue cardstock.

I Copic coloured and fussy cut this adorable relaxing Santa and two of the palm trees from the Vacation Santa Set and attached them to my scene. 

As a final touch I heat embossed my message onto a little piece of red cardstock and attached it to top right corner. 

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy crafting,
