I created a few cards to show off today.

First up, I couldn't wait to stamp and color the full-card-sized image from Happy Holidays.

I used the MISTI tool to stamp the image, so that I could get a really good impression. I wanted the letters to be c-r-i-s-p.

I kept the color palette to light browns and reds and used a light copic marker to draw in some rolling hills to give some depth to the image.

I couldn't help but color the girl a second time, cut her out and pop her out a bit. I just think she is the sweetest!

Even un-colored the image is so cute. I could see making a set of folded cards to give out as gifts.

The next card I made uses the fun set, Simple Joy.

This Santa is in relaxation mode! I imagined him reading a few thank you notes or the paper on Christmas morning? I colored his sweater red, because you can't take that color away from Santa! and gave him a pair of jeans to wear (rolled up, hipster style! ha.) My favorite is the fading of his jeans on the butt! I used a colorless copic marker to remove some of the blog from that area.

I thought the graphic background worked nicely with the fun Santa! I cut out a circle where Santa could rest on the card base and popped up the patterned paper. I used a warm grey copic marker to color around Santa, so that he would stand out even more.

Instead of stamping a sentiment, I used Pinkfresh stickers to highlight that this scene is happening on Christmas morning.

I hope you like my cards!

It's time to hop on over and see what the rest of the team dreamed up:
