Festive and Fun Cards (and a freebie)!

Hi, crafty friends! Just wanted to stop by today to share a couple of winter and holiday cards with you!

My first card features a freebie from the oh-so-adorable Whimsy and Stars Studio! This FREE tree digi made its debut today on the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog and is available for download until Monday, December 1 at 6 p.m. Eastern Time.

Because it’s a whimsical tree, I went with some not-so-traditional colors in my design. I colored the tree with Copics, and accented the berries and stars with Stickles. I also added some Stickles to make the funky turf in the flowerpot!

Other supplies: patterned paper (SEI Berry Melody), sentiment stamp (aMuse Studio), twine (Trendy Twine – Annie’s Paper Boutique), card stock (white, kraft – Papertrey Ink; Pool Party – Stampin’ Up), Copic markers, sewing machine, Stickles (Star Dust, Cotton Candy), Spellbinders Labels 25.
My second card features “Arctic Friends,” a new stamp set I picked up from Lil’ Inker Designs. It was so fun to color up, and I finally got to use some embellishments I’ve had for a while.
You can’t really see it in the picture, but I added Glossy Accents to the ice that the polar bear is sitting on. Some Stickles were added to the ice cream to make them sparkle.

Other supplies: patterned paper (Echo Park – Winter Wishes), chipboard accent (Crate Paper), twine (Trendy Twine – Annie’s Paper Boutique), ink (Tsukineko Brilliance Graphite Black, SU Night of Navy), brads, sewing machine, Spellbinders Labels 25, foam tape.

Well, that’s all for now! I’ll be back on Sunday with a new Christmas Card Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by!
