One more Christmas card and another easel card. Card stock used was Whisper White for the Santa image, Cherry Cobbler, and River Rock for the base. The patterned paper is from my stash. Santa was colored with blender pens and ink. I used Smooch Accent Ink on his beard, moustache, eyebrows and the white on his cap. I also added a little Dazzling Diamonds on the fur of his cap. The scallop circle and bookplate holding the greeting were cut with Sizzix dies in my Big Shot. Two gold brads hold the bookplate in place.

My sisters and I get together to stamp once a month and usually have a challenge of some kind. This month's challenge was to make a card from the SCS sketch below. Here is my sister Lauren's card using the Jolly Old St Nick and Teeny Tiny Wishes sets.
My sister Sarah used a retired set to create the poinsettias on the card below. She also chose the retired set So Many Sayings and the Modern Label punch for the sentiment.
I also used a retired set, Basket Full of Fun, for my card below. Card stock used is Wild Wasabi, Brushed Gold, Whisper White, and Cherry Cobbler for the card base. The patterned paper is from my stash. The ornaments in the basket were embossed using Gold Encore ink and Gold embossing powder.

Another card using the Northern Flurry embossing folder. I was inspired by a card posted to SCS by bon2stamp. Basic Gray and Shimmer White card stock, basic pearls, and retired ribbon and sentiment stamp all from Stampin Up.

I like how this card turned out. (Although the scan is a little crooked, the card isn't.) I stamped the snowman from Jolly Old St Nick on Whisper White and colored him with Stampin Write markers and stamped the sentiment in Marina Mist with a stamp from a retired hostess set called So Many Sayings. Then I embossed it in the Northern Flurry embossing folder, spritzed a little Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on it, added Dazzling Diamonds glitter where the stamped imagine indicated snow and adhered it to a Marina Mist card base.

In addition to stamping and scrapbooking I enjoy spending time with our dogs. We have three American Eskimos so when I saw this stamp, I had to have it. The sky was sponged with Night of Navy and Dazzling Diamonds glitter was used on the snow. The card base is Handsome Hunter (retired) and the trees are from Lovely as a Tree.
