Kaszazz - Snowy Reindeer Large

The second of my cards today.  This Kaszazz Snowy Reindeer Large 1199J stamp (Kaszazz is an Australian company) was coloured in using an aqua brush and Black Soot Distress Ink.  The horns are a combination of LuminArte Cinnamon Brown and Burnt Umber.  The headband is Pumpkin Spica Glitter pen with the balls also being painted in LuminArte Poppy Red, Ginger Peach, Deep Coral and Orange Peel.

The background paper is Bo Bunny Father Christmas Stripe.  The sentiment is a Hero Art one called Holiday Sayings die cut using Whimsy Notables 2.  On the left hand side I have used MFT die Fishtail Flag Stax to cut 3 pieces which were decorated with a few snowflakes from my stash.

Peachy Keen's Country Bumpkin Mooey Christmas

I know it is after Xmas but I have finally managed to get 2 cards downloaded onto my computer.  Been having problems with my usually trustworthy photo editing program.

This delightful image from Peachy Keen's Country Bumpkin Mooey Christmas was mailed and as it was made back in October I am unable to remember how I coloured it in - sorry.  The sentiment is from the Hero Art set called Wishes Come True and it was die cut using Whimsy Bottle Cap with a Spellbinders Circle.

The good news is that all my craft boxes have been unpacked and everything survived the international move.  My new craft room has been set up and I am looking forward to getting back to creating.  Just have to deal with my first winter in the northern hemisphere !

Cottage Cutz Holiday Sleigh die

A simple red and gold Christmas card.  The sleigh by Cottage Cutz is an easy one to die cut and it has some solid parts from an adhesive perspective, something which I always look at when purchasing a new die.  I do have a Xyron but end up with more tacky stuff on me than on the die cut.  Must be doing something wrong !!

The sentiment is an unknown one for me and I still have no access to my stamps.  Our container has yet to be delivered so I am without my craft supplies for a while longer.
