I got this wonderful little stamp called Christmas Joy from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I coloured the cardinal using Derwent Inkintense  pencils. When I finished him I felt there was something missing then it hit me…Snow! the branches need snow! I used both a glitter based snow product, and a white pearlized paint. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley. I switched up the papers to change to overall feel of the card.

Christmas is a special time of year. If you are fortunate to live in an area with snow it is truly a Winter Wonderland. For this challenge I used my Penny Black - Christmas Cottage stamp. I used my Derwent Watercolour Inktense pencils. I added Tim Holtz’s Stickles accents to the snow. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

For my card I used Bugaboo’s “Christmas Jar”. I coloured it with my  Spectrum Noir Markers. I used a patterned paper from my stash with numerous sentiments on it, focusing on the large Joy on the right lower corner. I also added some glittered snowflake stickers.

Bugaboo makes a whole series of jars for every occasion. Please check them out!

I love Bugaboo Stamps. The stamp below was called Santa’s Window. I say “was” because it has been retired. Jodie has so many digis stamps available on her site that time to time she will retire old images to make room for the new. So I would suggest check out her site often. She regularly has sales, posts new stamps each week, and offers a new freebie each Friday!
Please support Bugaboo!
I coloured the Santa in the window with Copic markers, fussy cut him out and layered him with various Christmas card stock pieces I had on my desk. bugaboo4
