Whiff of Joy # 59...Sparkle, Sparkle, Sparkle...Sweet Little Angel and more!


Hello crafty friends! I hope you are all of having a great weekend! I am just quickly posting these last minute cards that I have been making and wanted to share them with you before we go to see Santa at the Mall today!
I am entering these cards in the Whiff of Joy Challenge this week! The challenge is Sparkle, Sparkle, Sparkle and these cards do just that! I am just loving the WoJ Christmas Tree stamp and creating cute Christmas scenes with it! I needed a baby card so I thought I would make it do double duty as a Christmas card as well. So, I stamped Willow with Toddler on ATS Copic Quality paper and then masked her and stamped the Christmas tree. I then cut the image out with my Oval Nesties using the out of the Box technique! I coloured the image with my Copics and put it back in the oval Nestie to sponge with Distress inks.

I made yet another 6x6 easel card and used this great MME The Merry Days of Christmas paper kit that I am loving to bits. I used some sparkly American Crafts ribbon some pink half pearls and a SEI glazed brads in the Prima flowers. There is lots of sparkle to this card...maybe a bit too much...I might have over done the Stickles, lol! I grabbed the wrong bottle and used the burgundy Stickles on the flowers instead of the Christmas Red and I am not liking that so much but I don't think my friend will notice.

Well, I had stamped several of theses WoJ scenes and a few of them didn't quite turn out but I couldn't bare to chuck them. So, I cut them with my circle Nestie chopping of the part where I didn't get a good impression...that way I could salvage the image and not waste my paper. I made 2 more cards with these salvaged images.
This one is for Kieran's Special Education Resource Teacher. I thought this was a sweet image for her as she helps kids learn to read. I also think the sentiment is a bit of wishful thinking on my part. I wish Hannah and Kieran would get along as nicely as Willow and Oakley are here, lol!!!

This card I am going to send to the Psychologist that did Kieran's assessment.
I hope we don't' have to stand in a long line to see Santa as I have several more cards to make this afternoon...how terrible am I, lol?!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
Hugs,
