Don’t you love this Candy Jar? Wonderful image & so fun to color. After stamping, coloring & die cutting, I added foam layer to pop it up before attaching to the red layer. I found some peppermint paper in the right colors for the background & added the greeting on a stitched circle die cut. I colored & fussy cut some holly (from Bells w/ Holly) to go behind the circle.

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my pleasure to host this week & a big congrats to Crystal, the newest Featured Stamper (FS615)! She has a big, beautiful gallery & there were many I wanted to case, but I kept coming back to THIS. I kept pretty much everything..the layout, the Christmas theme..but I used different images & made my own backgrounds (except for the music oval).

After stamping & fussy cutting the bells, I stamped different Christmas words in cranberry onto the red layer & holly & snowflakes on the green w/ the oxide ink. The gold star was ciimped after die cutting & I added part of an oval of music behind the bells. I also added some looped gold thread behind the bells.

Here’s a look at the inside.

A very fashionable site Stacy chose for the Inspiration Challenge (IC676). I had a hard time picking just one. But I kept coming back to THIS dress w/ the red top & splatter of red on the skirt. To me it looked like it looked perfect for a Christmas card.

For my fairly simple card, I die cut the white front & red topper then used an angled border die to cut off the bottom of the red piece. I stamped the white part w/ different size snowflakes & also a little splatter using the candy apple oxide ink. On the red topper, I stamped the same images w/ Versamark but didn’t think they showed up very well so I stamped a few of them w/ the frost white pigment ink. The greeting was added along w/ a single ornament then some sheer ribbon & some glitter white & red snowflakes.

Here’s a look at the inside.
