More Christmas Cards

October has been Christmas card making season for me so far - I'm even playing Christmas CDs to keep me in the mood!  I mailed my box of cards for Operation Write Home and am now going to town on mine.  Here's a few I have finished so far:

I used a Stampin' Up stamp from the Holiday Lineup set, colored these cute reindeer with Copic markers and used some glitter stickles for that great red nose; paper is from an old DCWV Christmas mat stack and some ribbon finished off this card.

I just love these adorable little hedgehogs from Penny Black!  I water colored them with some Stampin' Up ink pads, and matted them on some DCWV cardstock and Christmas patterned paper, then added some ribbon.

Here's another of those adorable little hedgehogs.  My daughter has a hedgehog named Lola who is much cuter but we can't get her to push a sled with gifts :)

This stamp is also from the Stampin' Up Holiday Lineup set - I love these little snow people!  I colored their accessories with some Copic markers and added some snow glitter Stickles for sparkle, matted them with DCWV cardstock and patterned paper, and cut a snowflake from a Cricut cartridge.

This is the last of the trio from the Holiday Lineup stamp set from Stampin' Up - what a lineup!  Once again I used Copic markers, cardstock and patterned paper from DCWV and a cute little chipboard Christmas tree.

I colored each card differently, sometimes with matching colors and sometimes with colors you'd never think went together, but it really made these characters jump off the card.

This last set was made using a lovely stamp from Flourishes.  I just love, love, love their stamp sets.  I used some Stampin' Up ink for these along with solid blue cardstocks and ribbons, but have also made a few more with embossing powder. 

I hope you're enjoying the rest of this lovely weekend!
