Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Good morning! I had a day off yesterday and had the opportunity to play the Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge. It was a fun sketch...will probably use it again for another card....

I used the My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas pad and went for a bright and cheery look...I think the non-traditional colors are fun! Fluffles is colored with pencils, his eyes are dotted with a black gel pen, and the ornaments are accented with glitter. I added a sentiment from Verve, some ribbon, and brads to finish the card.

Image: Stampendous
Sentiment: Verve "Holly Jolly"
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Pure Poppy, SU! Bermuda Bay
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: SU! Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Spare Parts Brads, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust"
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Tim Holtz Piercing Ruler, Lasting Impressions Piercer, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

Below is a picture of the January card kit made for my S.S. I went with a winter theme; included were images from Stampendous and Kraftin' Kimmie, DP from Imaginisce (also a matching stamp), cardstock, diecut snowflakes, ribbons, and assorted brads. I really like making these and keep thinking it would be really fun to be able to do something creative like this for a living. No, I won't quit my day job! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by; I hope you have a great day!

I actually have that kit out on my table so that I can work on it when I get Christmas cards finished and I have the November one out too. I am going to send you to a blog where a lady does makes kits for sale, she includes a stamp and they aren't anywhere as nice as yours.
I love everything about this card, love the colors, love that Fluffles image, and love how well you matched your colors in the image to the paper...beautiful card.
I took a coloring class from her when Denise and I spent part of Oct. and Nov. in Oregon at the cabin. That is how I know her and I have bought one kit from her because everyone was out of the stamp I wanted.
