First Snow

Time to get going on some xmas cards!  REALLY??!!  Well ... yes.  LOL!  And Christmas will get here soon and I still won't have enough!  I could do JUST xmas cards from now until then and never have enough!  Cuz let's face it, who wouldn't love to get a Christmas card?!

My first one to show you is starring "First Snow" by Krista of Saturated Canary.  She's so sweet!  Get these images while you can as she will be shutting her store at the end of August.  Sad but understandable.  This one is on sale for $2.50 USD right now.  I've used this awesome mitten card art from Dutch Doobado and you can find a whoooole lotta these card art templates at Noor! Design UK.  I LOVE them!  They are far cheaper than buying the shaped dies but I love those too.  I can just have more of these.  LOL!

Isn't this snowflake die something?!!  I got it late last year and didn't get the chance to use it until now.  One of my favorites!!!  I did get another new one already but I'll reveal that one later.   Yikes!  LOL!  Isn't that purple daisy pretty?!   Eeeeee!!!  Luv them!

And the tree dies and snowflake die is from Noor! Design UK.  See a pattern here?  Noooo, not my favorite store AT ALL!  LOL!

A little distress ink coloring and these colors are:

Coat - Dusty Concord
Jeans etc - Faded Jeans
Hair - Walnut Stain
Mittens - Hickory Smoke

And why not add another one to the post?!!  Again with using the mitten card art template and more dies from Noor! Design UK - Winter sentiment, Santa and his sleigh, Reindeer dies and the snowflake border.

Added a few cute Wild Orchid flowers and a Tim Holtz sentiment.  Hard to see but I did add a bunch of Stickles all over.  As usual, things look better IRL.  The pearl and blue lace come from Live and Love Crafts.  Sandie's got an incredible selection of gorgeous laces!!  

And another image done with distress inks (see colors below)  Will I ever switch back over to Copics?  Yes, when using red because I can't seem to find a good red I like yet with the DI's but it'll come.  LOL!  And yes anyway.  I think my Copics are screaming.  I'm sure that's the muffled sound I hear coming from my craft room.  LOL!  

DI colors used:

Ok so I WAS gonna add one more winter card but I'll save it.  LOL!  Besides, I've been writing my post up for a good part of the hour now so off I go but thanks for stopping by!

Such gorgeous cards, Eulanda!!
Thanks for showing the pens that you coloured with. I thought you had used the inks - but I was wrong.
