Yeti for Christmas?

Hello fellow crafters! Today I have started on making some Christmas cards, and have used some MFT stamps.  I just adore these Yetis and couldn't help but purchase them with all those cute sentiments that come with the stamps!

Materials used:

My Favorite Things - Beast Friends, Santa's elves
Pretty Pink Posh - Storybook 1 die
Ranger- enamel accents
Wow! - gold pearl, pastel glacier mint embossing powder
Dress it up - itty bitty snowflakes

Copics were used to color the yetis and Christmas tree.  While I usually list the color I've used I decided to keep todays post more on the simple side, but I'm curious to know if you prefer to see simple post or do you prefer to have all the colors listed?

I've used embossing powder on the sentiment and on the little snow on the sides.  The Christmas tree and little snow I have on the sides of the sentiment are from the MFT stamp Santa's Elves.

Finally I've turned this card into a cute little easel card.  I hope you've enjoyed this little project!

Sometimes when I get started I don't have a complete idea in my head just maybe a couple things I want to use.

Tim Holtz - argyle stencil
Wink of Stella -clear

Penguin santa meets nightmare before christmas

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a Halloween/Christmas card. Let me start off by saying ever since I saw the new Tim Holtz Halloween stencil "twisted", I've had a "Nightmare before Christmas" on my mind and new I had to make a card inspired by this. So I went to work! I couldn't find the stencil in any of my local craft stores, and the cost of shipping to Hawaii for the stencil would've cost more then the stencil itself! After some thought I realized I should check the silhouette store, it would be way cheaper, I'd get it instantly, and I still had some stencil material I had purchased awhile back. This worked out perfect, I found a tree with branches that suited my needs and I tore them off the tree in my design studio and created my own stencil!
Materials used:

Kitty Bee Designs - Santa Christmas Penguin
Snow Marker
Gelly roll pen - gold
Wink of Stella - clear
Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress grit-paste
Lawn Fawn - Large stitched stackables
Various - sequins, seed beads, faux snow
Silhouette - old tree svg

Copics used:

Santa - 110, C7, C5, C3, C2, C0, R89, R29, R24, Y17, YR16
Background - B37, B16, Y13, 110

Unfortunately I've recently lost about 3/4 of my svg cuts due to a computer malfunction, and an error on my part ruining my back up drive! So today I had to put my drawing skills, which are incredibly unimpressive, to work!lol I had to draw out my little spider legs on the top and used enamel accents to give them little bodies, and I had to draw out my spider web! Lucky for me it wasn't anything too complicated!
