The first card was made using the Dream Catcher stamp HO145F: I used Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks and applied them to a blank white card using a blending tool. Then I stamped the Pine Tree Small HO103D in several places using Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I created the snow mound from a scrap piece of white card stock, curving the top with the scissors as I went. The snow mound was then adhered over the sky and trees.
The Dreamer Girl was stamped onto scrap card stock, colored and cut out. I used foam tape to adhere her to the card after I stamped White Christmas HO123B to the snow mound of the stamp. To finish the card I added a Creative Impressions white glimmer ribbon to the left side of the card panel and one of their snowflake brads between the girl's hands. The panel was adhered to a white card.
The following card was created using the Pinecone Duo Stamp HO130G, one of my favorite stamps!
I stamped the pine cone onto a cream card stock panel, colored it with pencils and added a red micro brad from Creative Impressions to the center of the greens. I then stamped Holiday Wishes HO205C below the pine cone, added color around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool, adhered the panel to a larger brown panel with a Creative Impressions brown glimmer ribbon and a bow and then to a Bo Bunny dots evergreen panel. Finally all was adhered to a white card.
Next up is a card using the Frosty stamp HO201G. For this card I decided to use a pre-made Bo Bunny dots powder blue card panel. I stamped Frosty twice, once on the dots panel and once on a white card stock panel. By doing this I could cut out the Frosty image along the far tree line, cutting off the branches for his arm and the branch tree. By lining up the two images, I didn't have to cut around the branches. Easy!
Pencils were used to color the children's clothes. The entire panel was adhered to a slightly larger black panel and finally a white card. 'Tis the Season HO139B was stamped in the lower right section of the card.
The last card I call the "Polar Express" for obvious reasons. This card is so easy to create as there is no coloring at all except for some white pen accents for "snow" I stamped Christmas Time HO138E first with black Archival ink. I then stamped the Train TP119C below it to the left and finally Believe HO116C along the top of the Christmas Time sign.
I created a small snow mound from a scrap of white card stock along with a snowflake from Creative Impressions using their different sized snowflakes and a glitter brad. I used my white pen to draw in some snow and some Stickles to add glitter. This panel was adhered to a larger black panel, a Bo Bunny Dots paper and finally to a white card.
I hope you have enjoyed these cards and you will try making some of them for yourself. As you can see, they were quite easy!
