DIY Christmas Gift Bag!

Good morning,
and Merry Christmas to all!

I really LOVE Christmas time, is one of my favorite season and I'm so sad is almost over. I have done some beautiful paper decorated gift bags during this month. Here is one more to share with you guys.

 The stamp I am using is called "Small Stackable Stanley"

I stamped my image with black archival ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut it and decorated with all the embellishment I find. This is one of my fav images is cute and simple, but you can decorated Stanley as you wish. I hope you got some inspiration and I am wishing you a wonderful Christmas time.

Hello HH 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".

Santa's Helper?

I am on a last minute Christmas card making kick.  There are a few people on my card giving list who will look like this after Christmas dinner, especially after dessert! "Santa's Helper" is the perfect stamp for one of these people don't you think? 

It looks to me like someone found Santa's cookie and milk stash and has over indulged! 

After colouring up this fun stamp with alcohol markers, I cut it out using a pleated circle die and added some Stickles to his hat and coat for a bit of sparkle. The sentiment is one long sentiment that I masked off and "layer" stamped to fit my card design.  Some matching glittery ribbon and gumdrops finish off my card.

Let Us Adore Him!

Good morning HHS friends,
I am here today with a vintage Christmas card.
I wanted to created a soft and Vintage Christmas scene, with just a little sparkle!

So today I am using  "Let Us Adore Him"

I started with stamping out this beautiful image on Copic friendly paper. Them used stitched squared die. For the background I used distress ink softly in the inside, hard in the edges. For sparkle I added my Winkle Stella pen. It's kind of hard to!

The pattern paper and sentiment are from my stack.
To finish I used espresso cardstock, some ribbon, white pen and gold rhinestones. 

Here is a close up!
I LOVE how my card turned out. I hope this Vintage Christmas card have inspires you today.

Have a BLESS day!

Winter Wonderland!

Howdy HH & OCS Fans!
Santa is giving Rudolph a bit of a rest before his big night Christmas Eve! This is the adorable "Reindeer Games" from High Hopes Stamps!
I chose this plaid paper from an older Lawn Fawn 6x6 collection! There's just something about plaid that always gets me! I stamped and then coloured my image with my Copic Markers. I added the outline and sky with my markers as well. Then I added some snowflakes using Liquid Appliqué. I let it dry then heated it up and voilá they puff up! Glitter was added for the snow effect. I also used the HH sentiment called "Winter Wonderland" in a little tag die!
On the inside I used the "Sparkle & Cheer" sentiment from High Hopes.
