Christmas Creatures

If it wasn't for the last minute, yada yada yada....I have a whole bunch of cards for the Christmas Creatures challenge at jingle belles - critter cards are always some of my favourites, and the Christmas variety are JUST SO CUTE!

Supplies: sentiment & puppy from Inkadinkado; snowflakes from PTI; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Mustard Seed distress ink; Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder; Bic Markers; white liquid enamel stuff (lol) from Ranger; Sakura black glaze pen; Yellow Daisy glimmer mist from Tattered Angels


I dotted the pup's eyes with the Glaze pen, and coated the snowflakes with white enamel. The, uh, puddles are done by dabbing the glimmer mist on with a paintbrush, and 'yellow' highlighted as well. This is a set of 6 cards :)


Supplies: Deer & sentiment from Inkadinkado; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; deer paper from Memory Box; dotted papers from Studio Calico; Paper Smooches kraft twine; cream twine; button from stash; Bic Markers



Supplies: polar bear stamp from Imaginisce; Spectrum Noir markers; bear paper from Memory Box; classic small circle Nesties; Sizzix labels die 

Tattoo update - rescheduled for Saturday afternoon. I CAN'T WAIT! :)
xoxo,
Jessi
