Hi again! Happy New Year's Eve! The holiday season is almost over, and that makes me a little sad. I am looking forward to the new year, but I always miss that special glow and cozy warmth that the holiday decorations give. I guess it's no surprise then that I'll jump right into Valentine's Day when the last of the Santas and snowmen are packed away!
Before we ring in 2015, though, I have a few more Christmas cards to share. I simply adore Mitzi's work over at Aurora Wings! I used three of her gorgeous images to make special creations this holiday season!
First up is Mistletoe Fairy. She is colored with Copics and cut with Classic Squares Nestabilities (Spellbinders). I used Fleur De Lis Squares Nestabilities (Spellbinders) to mat the image. Papers are DCWV - Christmas Basics stack. I used the Martha Stewart Icicles border punch as well as the Tim Holtz On The Edge File Tab die. The metal Label Pull is also Tim Holtz. Eucalyptus Stickles, flowers, bling, and a wood veneer sentiment provide the finishing touches for this card. *Side note: I also had to use a white gel pen on her berries as I accidentally colored them red!*
Copics used: E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E31, E79, R20, R43, R46, N0, G03, G05, G09, G29.
Christmas Tree Sprite was colored with Copics for Kayne's Kindergarten teacher. (We also gave him Play-Doh for the classroom as well as a gift card and homemade treats for himself!) I stamped a Teresa Collins snowflake in Distress Ink around the edges of the image panel and heat set some Shabby White Fran-Tage. The image is matted with Lacey Squares Nestabilities (Spellbinders). I used the current layout from Sketch n Stash (#155) for my design. As for the stash part: those little Christmas lights have been in my embellishment box for quite some time and I was happy to have the perfect excuse to use them! I finished with a wooden veneer sentiment.
Copics used: E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, R20, R32, R43, R46, RV66, N0, N2, N4, Y28, Y32, Y35, Y38, B06, G03, G05, G09, G29.
And for my small man, I used Little Santa. The lil cutie is colored with Copics and the image panel is sponged with Old Paper Distress Ink. Papers are My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found Christmas Special Edition. Sketch Saturday (#341) provided my layout. I used Classic Squares Nestabilities (Spellbinders) to make the faux buckle. Cherry Cobbler seam binding (Stampin' Up) and a Martha Stewart ornament border punch supply the rest of the details.
Copics used: E00, E04, E11, E21, E25, E31, N0, N2, N4, N8, R20, R35, R37, R39, R89.
Thank you to every one of my followers for a wonderful 2014! I'm wishing each of you a safe, healthy, bright, and happy New Year!
