Christmas cards coming....

Working on some more Christmas cards for my stash.  No where near enough cards done yet but I am working on it!  LOL.
Rained most of the day here in beautiful, green, WET Oregon.  No work today either!  That means time in the craft room!

My first card is a new image from Fresh Brewed Designs.  Heather just did a new release of winter images.  Quite cute!


This image is called "My Snowman". 
Colored in copic markers
Glittered with Sugar crystals from Our Craft Lounge
The die cuts are Spellbinders
The ribbon and brad are from my stash. 
The DP paper is a gift from my friend Mindy (she let me raid her amazing stash of DP last night and I got to have whatever tickled me!  Too Cool!)
Some Glossy accents and the card was all done.

My second card all to has artwork from Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs.


This has 2 FBD images on it!  First there is 'Christmas Room'
Second image is "Kiss Me - Santa Baby"
Kiss me was colored, fussy cut-out and placed in the room on dimensionals
Coloring was again copic markers
The die cuts are Spellbinders (isn't that border too cool!)
Glossy accents on the ornaments
Sparkly Fluff from Our Craft Lounge on the trim of her hat and dress.
Liquid pearls for decoration.
Striped DP is from my stash.

Fantastic cards Gale! I just love all the shimmer and the beautiful Christmas colors and papers! The first one is just adorable, as I just love snowmen! And the second one has so much depth and texture it looks like I could just reach out and touch it through my computer screen! Great cards!
Hugs,
Stacy
