I broke out my Spectrum Noir Markers for this one. I had this stamp for a while but haven't done much with it until now. This is the type of image that is best colored with a blend-able medium like colored pencils or alcohol markers, so I dusted off my case of Spectrum Noirs and went to work. I decided on the colored papers after I had finished coloring the image. I went with patterns all from SU's Quarterfancy Specialty as it had all the colors I wanted in one package. The sketch is from Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge SSS160.

These are the cards I made for Christmas 2013. I added more details and techniques than I usually use for Christmas. I used an embossing folder and 2-step stamping. Out of all the Christmas cards I have made, this is my favorite design. This is going to be hard for me to top for Christmas 2014!

I realized that I never posted the cards that I made for the past two Christmases. These are the ones I made for Christmas 2012. Since I make about 100 cards to send out to friends and family I like to do different variations to break up the monotony. I used a sparkly gel pen to add some shimmer accents to the focal image.
I try to choose designs that are quick but interesting since I make so many. My next post will show my Christmas 2013 design.

I made this card in September but forgot to post it. It was made for a friend's sister who had just a baby girl. It was fun and easy to make. I think I may have gotten the sketch from Splitcoast Stampers, but because silly me waiting so long to post this, I forgot many of the details.
