These tent topper style cards are very addicting! this one is made with last year's retired holiday mini set, Jolly Holiday. Card stock is bashful blue, wild wasabi, whisper white and watercolor paper. Santa is stamped in black stazon and colored with the water brush and watercolor crayons to match. The designer paper is from the Winter Bright simply scrappin' kit.
I created the scallop border with the corner rounder and I used the Marvy Mega and Giga circle scallop punches for Santa. Doodles are done with the white gel pen. The Merry Christmas label is punched from the designer label punch and the stamp is from the level 1 hostess set. I added a circle behind it with some piercing. This is a very easy layout to work with.

This is the 2nd card I used for inspiration for my customers that purchased the Wishing You Cheer set when it was on sale a few weeks ago. The card is 6x3 in size. The base is soft sky and its layered with blue bayou and the designer paper included in the Merry and Bright simply scrappin' kit. I created the window with the 1 3/8 inch square punch. It lined up perfectly and was easily centered on this strip of paper. I added per piercing to the layers for a little added detail. The snowman is colored with markers and blender pens to match and highlighted with dazzling diamonds glitter for the snow. The 2 pieces of matching stitched ribbon (wasabi and soft sky) are tied in a punch out from the slot punch.

I was inspired to make this card after seeing this one by Cindy Haffner. I cased it (copied and selectively edited) to make it my own. My card is made on brocade blue which was an exact match to the DCWV winter stack from a few years ago. The Marvy oval scallop punches were uses on the snowman. He has Dazzling Diamonds on his sides and just a little on his face. I layered with some whisper white cardstock and I used markers to color the snowman. The white gel pen made the doodles on the scallops and the ticket corner punch makes the notched edges. The sliver trimmed blue and white ribbon is from Michael's. I bought it last year on clearance for $1.00. The sentiment from this set is stamped on the inside in white craft ink.

This is a little box that holds 3x3 gift cards and Envelopes. I am really having some fun making some boxes and cards as gift sets. This set is made with the Merry & Bright Stamp set as well the Wintergreen designer series paper. The matching card stock colors are sage shadow, always artichoke and whisper white. I have a series of punches--- scallop, 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 inch circle, word window and the small and large tag punches. The box design and specs came from FlaxyChick's blog HERE. I changed it up slightly but nothing major! Enjoy!

I hate to admit it-- I have had this Papertrey "Believe" set for quite sometime and finally it saw some ink last night! The colors on this card are wild wasabi and real red. The patterned paper is from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' kit. The ink is basic black and wild wasabi. I colored the wreath in with a blender pen and ink from the lid of the wild wasabi ink pad. Santa's coat and the berries are colored with a real red marker. I added some liquid applique to Santa's coat to give it a fur trimmed look. This adds an amazing 3-d effect (double click the picture for a larger view). Santa's face is colored with a blush blossom marker and his cheeks are made rosy by using a pink marker. A few gold brads and some stitched ribbon complete the card.
