Cute and Christmassy!

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'...and this month the topic is:  CUTE CHRISTMAS!  How hard is that...not very. I think there are more cute Christmas stamps than any other holiday. One thing you don't want to do is BUY Christmas cards later this year, or stress that you don't have enough made. Join us the second Wednesday of each month and you'll have gotten a head start on your cards!

I used a stamp I bought this year from Whimsy. She's a stamp by Time For Tea. I think she's a great image to use for a CUTE CHRISTMAS card!

I colored my image with Copics and added the white polks dots on her hat with a white fine tip Sharpie pen. The big snowflake is a die by Tonic Studios and the sentiment in the center is by Whimsy and I used a round punch. The lace is from my stash and I ran pearls along the top of it to dress it up a bit--like lace needs dressing up! My polka dot ribbon and red rhinestones are from my stash. The snow and pom-pom on her hat were made with white 3-D paint and while wet I sprinkled glitter on the paint.

If you haven't yet been to Christmas at Sweet Stampin' to see the very CUTE CHRISTMAS cards by the Design Team, please stop over. You won't be disappointed and maybe a card or two will inspire you to join us this month. The challenge closes April 11!  Please read the rules on the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' challenge blog before entering.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us this month!

  5. Your red and blue combo is a great choice for this wintery card, Gail. Lovely coloring and the lace gives an even greater feminine feel to this creation. Pretty, lacy snowflake, and your swiss dotted ribbon goes very well with your design, as well as the gems. And, of course, you can never go wrong with pearls and glitz!
