Santa's Gifts!

Hi DDS Fans!
I've got a bit of a different project to show you today! This is my "Santa's Gifts" little snow globe from Digi Doodle Studios. I've had this little jar forever and actually forgot about it. When I found it again this idea popped into my head!
I coloured "Santa's Gift" with my Copic Sketch Markers and then fussy cut him out. I added a little piece of styrofoam with hot glue to the lid. I added a piece of florist wire to the bottom of Santa and then stuck him into the styrofoam. This way I was sure he wouldn't move around. I also glued the base of the tree to the foam and then added little tiny styrofoam balls to make it look like snow. Let me tell you they were everywhere LOL. 
When I downloaded my "Santa's Gift" digital file I sized him to fit the jar and then made a second image, flipping it horizontally. This way I could glue the two images together so from any angle you would see Santa. It also helped so I could glue the florist wire between the two images. I decorated the lid with some ribbon and a string of pearl beads with my glue gun.
A nice big bow and wooden snowflake finish off the top of my jar.
Copics Used:
Santa's skin & Beard: E00, E11, R20/ C1, C3, C4
Santa's suit: R24, R27, R29/ N5, N6, N8
Reindeer: E21, E23, E25
Santa sack and gifts: E41, E42, E43/ YG63, YG67, Y35, Y38, B23, R24, R27

I wish you all a Happy Holiday Season and a Merry Christmas!
Happy Stamping!

Snow One Like You!

Hello Everyone!
I've got another Christmas card to share with you today! This card is using the digital stamp called "Jolly Ol' Sparky Snowman" and is from Digi Doodle Studios.
I coloured my image to match the colours in the LDRS Creative "Arctic Snowfall" 6x6 collection. Such pretty colours in this collection and so pretty for my Snowlady! I cut her using the Gina Marie Arched Stitched Tag dies and added some die cut bows. Of course I needed some Stickles on her and the little bird! The DDS digital sentiment is from the "Snow Wishes" collection. Lots of die cut snowflakes and some lace finish off my card.
I used some of the leftover paper scraps on the inside and a sentiment from High Hopes Stamps called "Magic of Christmas". (Dina also designs for HH).
Copics used:
 B0000, B000, B00, B21, B41, B63, B66
C1, R81, R83, YR04, E25, E27, E29, YG23, YG25

Happy Stamping!

Snowman Joy

Hello Friends!
I'm still busy working away on my Christmas cards. We recently moved and have made a bunch of new friends and I want to send them some Holiday Cheer! These cuties are digital stamps from Digi Doodle Studios and are called "Sparkle, Glitter & Joy Snowmen".
I decided to use fun, bright papers from the Sunny Studios "Holiday Cheer" 6x6 collection. I coloured these sweeties with  my Copic Markers and added Stickles and Liquid Appliqué for a fun look. I also added polka dots to the letters using a white gel pen. Using Distress Ink in Vintage Photo I inked all the edges of my papers to add a bit of definition. A big bow and snowflake brad finish everything off.
More cuteness on the inside and the digital sentiment from the DDS "Snow Wishes" collection.
Copics Used:
RV04, RV06, RV09
YG21, YG23, YG25
BG52, BG57
C1, R01, W0, W1, W2, YR04

Happy Holidays and Happy Stamping!

Ho Ho Ho!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
It's about a week away until this Jolly O'l Elf comes down your chimney spreading some Christmas Cheer.  This is the "Santa in Chimney" rubber stamp from High Hopes! I hope he can squeeze down that chimney! Some Santa magic may be needed lol!
I love this Sliding Window Die from Sunny Studios! It makes the cutest interactive card! My papers today are from the Echo Park "Celebrate Christmas" 6x6 collection. I added some Crystal Stickles to all of Santa's fur and some liquid appliqué to resemble snow on the roof.
I stamped and coloured the "Ho Ho Ho" sentiment from HH and added it to the section that reveals when you pull up the tab.
On the inside is the HH sentiment called "Holiday All Year".
