Holiday Card Blitz

Hi ya friends,
I have a few Christmas cards to share today. Being sick cut into my card-making time so I've been in a crafty flurry finishing up my Christmas cards for this year. Luckily, most of these will be hand-delivered.

Here's the first:
I used the Hot Cocoa Cups Dienamics from My Favorite Things along with the coordinating stamp set Hug in a Mug. This is such an easy peasy die set to work with.
 Here's a closer peek:
I used a Copic marker to create some yummy detail on the whipped cream. The cups were cut from pattern paper- super quick card!

Card #2:
 Aren't these reindeer the cuuuutest! They are from the Reindeer Games stamp set from Mama Elephant. I colored them with Copics and cut them out using the coordinating dies. This totally reminds me of my cheerleading days and performing stunts. Rudolf is doing Russians at the top! *Ü* I added the little Santa hat and present from the Baaah Humbug stamp set from Lawn Fawn. The sentiment is from the Winter Scripty Sayings also from Lawn Fawn. The background is watercolored with Distress Inks and ink-blended around the edges. I think this card is just so much fun! Love this set!

Onward to Card #3
I used the Winter Alpaca stamp set and coordinating die from Lawn Fawn. I die cut him from Sweet Tooth Felt from MFT. I colored his scarf with copics on cardstock, fussy cut it, & adhered it to the felt alpaca.
I spritzed the background in Summer Sky Fireworks spray so it's shimmery and just the right amount of blue. I colored his little face with my son's markers (can't risk damage to mine...shhh ;) I added some Stickles to the snow bank & finished it off with some Sparkling clear sequins from PPP.

Ok, last one...
Whaaaat? not stopping at three??? Ya know, ya gotta mix it up once in a while ;)
 This card uses the little sheep images from the Baaah Humbug stamp set from Lawn Fawn. The little sheep are also stamped on Sweet Tooth Felt & die cut with the coordinating dies.
Here's a closer peek:
I added some Martha Stewart Snow Glitter and hung a little mistletoe for smooching *Ü*  The background is embossed with the Sizzix/TH Poinsettia Knit embossing folder.

I used a couple of sketches to assist me:
For my hot cocoa cups card, I used MFT's Sketch #259
 and for my Alpaca card, I used Mojo Monday Sketch #428
and Lawnscaping Challenge #120

Phew! Thanks for hanging in for all these cards. I'm getting plum tuckered out with holiday cards, really. Are you?
