Christmas Santa!

There is nothing cuter than Santa with Rudolph and this rubber stamp called "Christmas Santa" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps is just that....CUTE!! Christmas is my favourite Holiday! I love to decorate my house and the memories we make each year with family and friends are ones I cherish dearly!
My card today is a simpler one for me! Usually I add lots of designer paper layers but I thought the scene with the "Christmas Santa" stamp was more than enough interest! So I only used 1 layer of matching cardstock and 1 layer of Designer paper from the American Crafts Cozy & Bright 6x6 collection. There is a bit of glitter pen on the candy cane and ribbon bows for a soft look. 
I used a die from Gina Marie called "Feathered Lace Rectangle" and I think it just sets off the image. A nice Christmas bow finished off my card.
I kept the same design theme on the inside and used the High Hopes sentiment called "Believe". I really think we should all "Believe" in the magic of the Holidays!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Beard: C1, C2, C3, C4
Deer: E31, E33, E35, E37, W1, W3, W5
Boots, Belt & Gloves: N5, N6, N8
Reds: R35, R37, R39
Greens: YG63, YG67
Yellows: Y26, Y28

Lg. Stackable Santa

Howdy - MichelleO here today and today I have a fun card for you - How can you not grin at this fun Santa from High Hopes Stamps? This is Lg. Stackable Santa ... and he is just well... FUN! 

I colored Santa with my Copics and thought.. I want him to pop on this card.. then thought well lets just make him pop off the card! So I cut out Santa and then folded a small piece of card stock in a zig zag fold and attached to the card. And man he jumps and wiggles on this card! LOVE that! I added some Nuvo Sparkle pen to his suit cuz we all know Santa sparkles!

For my Sentiment I used High Hopes Stamps "Celebrate the Magic of Christmas"  Perfect for this bouncing Santa!

My papers are from My Minds Eye that I have sewn the layers together with a zig zag stitch. The unusual colors really make this Santa bold and bright and POP on this card!

Copic colors used - 

 A Clean and Simple card that really does make you smile when that Santa does a little wiggle! For more fabulous Christmas images for your cards this year jump on over to the web site store HERE

Package Packin' Penguin*

I'm glad to be back sharing two projects I did for Highhopesstamps.com 
I certainly enjoy creating this Christmas card and matching gift back. This adorable image was just the right size for my two projects.

The image I'm using is called "Package Packin' Penguin" and
 the sentiment is "Sleetin' & Freezin"  I stamped both images and colored with alcohol markers. The pattern paper is trim the tree I also used glitter and gold cardstock. To cut my circles I pulled all my Spellbinder circles.

 Here is my second project;
I have been waiting to crated a little treat holder or gift bag. I LOVE making my own bags, looking through my craft supplies I came across a few small pre-made bags and thought is just perfect size for my Christmas card to go inside! 

Image is colored with Copics;
penguin body W1 W3 W5
feets YR07 YR09
scarf and hat R24 R29 R39
present YG11 YG13 YG17

I wanted to add some sparkle so I chose diamond stickles. Hope you have enjoy both of my projects today tell me which one is your favorite.

The sentiment used on this card is Scripty Merry Christmas, but a New Year sentiment would also work. If you're looking for one, let me point out we have one right here.
