Ho Ho Ho

Good Morning! 

Just a couple of the very last of my Christmas cards, which I made back in October.

I am entering my Santa card in the Challenge at Simon Says Wednesday, Make It Sparkle.

I used this fabulous Skiing Santa, yes you read that right.....Skiing Santa, from the Power Poppy Action Santa stamp set.  Isn't he just fantastic???  After coloring him with Copic Markers and glittering up all his fur trim I fussy cut him out. 

Using the Jack Frost paper pack from American Crafts I created my mountainous terrain, separating the tree line form the snowy mountains with a thin blue ribbon.  I added one of those 'action wobblers' to the back of Santa and placed him in mid air!  Stamped my sentiment and snowflakes.  Added a bit more sparkle using a Wink Of Stella Clear Pen.

Here you can see the dimension the 'action wobbler' gives.

And now you can really see this Action Santa IN action!  Such a cool photo!
Last Christmas card to share with you, and it's a Shaker!
This card uses the beautiful Power Poppy stamp set, Holly Golightly!  It's a Shaker Tag ON a Tag ON a card.....my favorite!  Images colored with Copic Markers.  I accented my holly berries with a white marker.

I stamped the tag image and then carefully die cut out the center portion.  My shaker bits are glitter and sequins. Then I stamped the holly all over my MFT Stitched Tradition Tags die cut and colored them.  Adding an eyelet and some pretty Christmas Ribbon.  I also added a Memory Box Twilight Snowflake die cut to mimic my Designer Paper background. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to 2017 and all it brings.  I don't know about you but I love turning the page of a calendar, let alone a year!

Thanks for swishing by......
