First Christmas card of 2011

Yes, I know it's only March, but I decided it was time to start making Christmas cards for my friends. So here it is, my first Christmas card of 2011!

The DP and the sentiment are both from The Paper Studio. I put a couple strips of Scor-Tape on the stripes (on the front of the card) and coated them with glitter from Sparkle and Sprinkle. I don't remember where I found the flower.

This angelic little Tilda (Christmas Angel) is one of my favorites. I colored her with the following Copics:

E000             E53
E00               E57
E11               G16
R20               G17
R22               G28
R24               W3

I used a gold Gelly pen from Sakura on the crown and star.

Birthday card for mom

Wow, has it really been over a month since my last post? Yikes.

I just finished my mom's birthday card and got it in the mail to her Wednesday. Her birthday was Sunday (oops). Between school and my usual trial-and-error method of card making, it took me about a month to finish it.

It's my very first easel card, so I'm pretty happy with the results. The metallic papers came from my stash. The dimensional sticker and the gemstones came from Michael's. The white paper is from Cryogen.

I've really fallen for these Popcorn the Bear stamps. They are just so cute. I colored this one (from the Thanks a Bunch stamp set) with my Copics and added some sparkle with Stickles.

I'm looking for some challenges to enter, so stay tuned.
