More and More Christmas Cards

Have been happily stamping the last few days during Thanksgiving break. Want to get a few of my new creations posted before heading to bed.

This first one is for the current Bugaboo Bingo Challenge. It meets the requirements of the vertical row on the right: Charm, Stitching, and Sparkle. Also used the color scheme on the Let it Snow Mood board at SumMoreFun challenge (Shades of aqua and teal, plus a pop of fuchsia. Love that color combo!) And since I used the sweet little fox from the Lawn Fawn "Warm Winter Wishes" set enjoying a warm brew, I can enter it into the Wednesday Simon Says Challenge. 
(I'm providing a close up of the little fox, because I paper pieced him and love the ridged texture of the tan paper. It didn't really show up until I started adding the shading with my alcohol markers. Then... wow!)

Today's challenge at Beccy's Place Fifth Annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge was to create a card/item using one of Beccy's Freebies. I decided to make another card using the one that warmly says, "With Love at Christmas."  (You can find it here
This time I printed the image on kraft cardstock, added just a bit of color on the leaves and berries, added white contrasts with a gel pen, and finally mounted it on berry red patterned paper. Fast and so very pretty!

  1. I agree Kathy, the texture on the little fox is fabulous, great idea to colour on the textured card stock. I love the pretty background colours and the fabulous line of icicles.
    Your second card is lovely, the colours look wonderful together, especially that pretty shad of red. I love the addition of the white pen, it really pops against the kraft. Great job Kathy!
