Wishing everyone a happy and merry Christmas. Today I'm sharing The Nativity by The Amy Doodle stamp Co. I love this stamp. I've started off with a pearl used white base card and then matted with gold Miri card. I've then used a backing paper from Kaiser craft. I've die cut a fancy square spellbinders frame out of gold Miri card. I've then used a piece of starry night paper from a cre8tive paper pad. I've coloured The Nativity with Copic markers cut it out and popped it up with foam tape. The Nativity stamp comes with a few sentiments, I decided to go with the sentiment Rejoice, spelling it out with gold lettering. I've added a star gem and round gem to finish off.

Here's a cheerful card Hohoho using the Cocoa and Cookies Santa from RSD MFA. I've started with a green base card and then matted it with red card stock.

I've coloured Santa with Copic markers and added some kindy glitz on the fur of his suit. I've cut him out and popped him up with double sided tape.

Hi all I'm waving Hello with one of the cute images from Amy Doodle Stamp Co. Called Penguin Hello I decided to go for something completely different and make a snow globe! I had so much fun with this and it wasn't complicated at all. First I coloured the Penguin Hello with Copic markers and then cut them out. I then got out my laminating machine and laminated the image. I then cut the laminated penguins out leaving a border of about a centimetre around them they need to be waterproof. I then went down to my hubby's shed and found an empty pasta sauce jar. I made sure it was completely clean. I then got my hot glue gun out and glued my penguins to the lid of the jar while the glue was still hot I stuck some glitter to it. I then glued some plastic present buttons in to the lid too. I then put the lid aside. I got the jar and put about 3/4 of a teaspoon of glitter into the jar I added a couple of sequins in too. I then added a 75:25 ratio of water and glycerin almost but not quite to the top of the jar. I then put the lid on and gently shook it and then it snowed in the jar. 😊😉😃

PS you can buy liquid glycerine from a pharmacy.

Its starting to look a lot like Creepmas!!! For this card I have used a Creepmas digi from Rick St Dennis MFA called Godarkly Ginger Crumb.

The base card is black followed by red glitter card stock then matted with a paper that is James Bond Style from Kaiser Crafts Shaken not Stirred collection. Ive added some Christmas lights which I found in my department stores Christmas decorations section. I also added a couple of sequins and a sticker sentiment that I found, and seemed to fit this card to a T.

Here is the gorgeous Amy Doodle Stamp Co. Mistletoe Owls, they are so sweet and I loved colouring them. I coloured these cuties and the mistletoe with copic markers and then cut them out and popped them up on to a heart that I die cut out of red glitter paper. I also die cut a flourish out of gold glitter paper. I started out with a red pearlised base card, then matted it with green mirri card, and then matted it with a foiled Christmas music paper from Kaiser. With the mistletoe I added little white stick on pearls for the berries and popped it up as well.
