Jolly HOLLY at CASology

We're giving you 2 weeks to show us your awesome HOLLY inspired cards
over at CASology!
Merry Christmas and let's jingle all the way :)

This plaid holiday paper was calling my name...and of course I couldn't go without using a 
little pop of gold glitter tape (again lol). The stamp is sentiment stamp is from Precious Remembrance Shop and the holly berry and leaves are from Ellen Hutson.

In case you didn't know, I LOVE embossing powder. And yes, it takes some time masking off
intricate stamps, and avoiding getting the wrong color EP where you don't want it (trust me I know), but it's so worth the result!

I hope you check out the other DT member cards this bi-week and join us in the gallery!

Guest Designer: Toni

I'm also playing along at CAS(E) this Sketch! #301

Happy Holidays!

Christmas Cards and a DT Call

This is only like THE MOST WONDERFUL time of the year!
I love the Christmas season...the energy, the shopping, the weather, the food :)
And, I have a brother who was born on Christmas Day (love you Nate).

I'm not only making cards, but also sharing them in hopes of joining a new DT. 

This week's inspiration is from Freshly Made Sketches 367.

My favorite holiday icon is the snowman, so I couldn't help but color this little guy.
He's from The Alleyway Stamps (no longer in business, sad face).
I dry embossed some snowflakes in vellum and added more 
to the background with clear versa mark ink.

I painted over the Copic coloring on his earmuffs and scarf with Nuevo glitter drops 
(a new favorite thing I'm doing).

In case you missed my Christmas card last week on Instagram (I was on vacay in the Cozumel), here's a non-traditional color combo that I love, also using FMS as an inspiration!

Hope you're enjoying your holiday season and thanks for stopping by!
