Two Christmas Cards by Dianna

Hi Everyone Dianna here with two Christmas Cards.
The first card is Santa with a tree, wreath and word Believe from Gina's Designs. The background paper is "Beauty" from Authentique which is not actually "christmas paper" but a victorian look to it so it works well with card. The christmas tree chipboard is covered with music paper that had been distressed with brown ink. I used Stickles on the edges and to create the internal branches. I used Sparkling H2O's on the Believe and Wreath.
I used copic on Santa, the bear and rocking horse.
Santa's fur is a Snow Writer with Stickles daubed on it. A white fur ball was used to finish off Santa's hat.

The Second card's background is layed with scrap paper. The bottom layer of vintage is a Christmas word stamp on tea stained paper. The Jingle Bellsis a stamp and was stamped on a torn piece of scrap card stock. The Gina's Design Music Note was painted gold and then daubed with brown and gold Stickles. The Robin Stamp was colored with copic an the snow is from a snow writer.

Winter Snowman Banner by Dianna

Hi Everyone, Dianna here with Gina's Designs new Winter Snowman Banner.

The kit comes with six chipboard snowmen, twelve mittens, six scarfs, six hats and the letters to spell out Winter. I cut traced and fussy cut the six snowmen out of white cardstock and glued the cardstock on the chipboard. I used copic markers-BG0000 and N0 to outline the snowmen and create arms. Then I used three Darice embossing folders (two of them have snowflakes the other is a swirl pattern) and embossed two of the snowmen to one of the embossing folders, alternating the patterns. I embossed black card stock with same swirl embossing folder from Darice. I daubed Stickles - Icicles on each of the snowmen.

The Twinkling H2O's were used on the scarfs to give them an iridescent look. I traced and fussy cut the mittens alternating kraft and teal snowflake paper. The Winter was traced and fussy cut out of a white paper with glitter lightbulbs. The snowmens eyes are little self-sticking 1/2 round beads and the mouths are the tiniest buttons I have ever seen. The carrot noses were hand-cut out of orange paper and a copic marker - E04 was used to distress the nose. The teal ribbon was from my stash and the holly berry sprig is from Hobby Lobby.
