Welcome to the holiday season! Yep, that's right, it is time to showcase Close to my Hearts October Stamp of the Month "Sharing the Magic" with it's cute whimsical Santa, snowman, reindeer, Christmas tree and presents.
If you have come here from Kimberly Smiths Blog, you are on the right track. This is circle hop, so when you are finished here, just click on the link at the bottom of my post and keep on hopping till you eventually will see all the artwork. There are lot's of participants again this month, so grab your favorite beverage and your sketch pad and have fun...
I went traditional with my first card. I used two of the B & T papers from the "Mistletoe" paper pack and the Santa, sentiment and string of Christmas light images from the "Sharing the Magic" SOTM. Liquid applique or Santa's suit and fun flock for his beard, eyebrows and mustache. Watercolor pencils to color and I also used some soft chalks to try and add some "glimmer" from the string of lights. Oh and don't forget the new red bling!
The next card is totally different, but I love how it turned out. I used four of our new colors, Lagoon, Pear, Gypsy and Cotton Candy. I used the "Flurry" dimensional elements, clear embossing on the sentiment from "Sharing the Magic" and several sizes of gems to "pretty" it up a little. I cut out a "peek-a-boo" for the sentiment and stamped it in Lagoon on Pear.
Time to head on over to Tammy's Blog to see some more holiday "Magic"
