Glitter Santa

I made this card last year and decided to redo it a bit this year. I changed the card base to red and the greeting is on an oval this year. Santa stamp is by Rubber Stampede (Delta). I colored his face with Prisma markers. I then used a glue pen to add glitter to rest of image (glitter ritz microfine transparent warm highlight). I also used diamond glaze on his glasses.

I borrowed this stamp from a friend so I have no idea who it is by. I stamped a bunch out and gave the stamp back to her. I used my aqua brush and stampin' up inks to paint the image in. The patterned paper is called Yuletide from the Oh Joy line by Cosmo Cricket. I'm not sure of cardstock color. The Joy stamp is from Inkadinkado. I also used a sakura clear glaze pen over the berries to make them stand out a bit more.

Even More Christmas Cards :)

Instead of just making more of the same (which would be much easier and less time consuming). I seem to keep trying to design some more cards. I picked up this Tree stamp the other day and have been trying many different styles of cards with it. This one is my favorite. Nice and simple, the tree stamp is by Inkadinkado and the greeting on the bottom is by Stampin' up. It is done on gold metallic bazzill paper and Crimson bazzill cardstock. I stamped the tree & the greeting with versa mark ink and then used stampendous detail gold embossing powder.
The next card was done using my Cricut machine to cut out this cute snowman. I placed some of sookwang double sided tape on a piece of thin paper and cut the snowman out with my doodlecharms cricut cartridge. I then removed the tape backing and covered him with white fun flock. I used some orange ribbon for his scarf. The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Colorful Christmas Falling Flakes and the Bazzill cardstock is Butterfly and Sour Apple. The Merry Christmas stamp is by In The Making.
