Visions of Santa!




Love these creepy dancing Santas!    I've been dying to get this set and see what I could do with these hairy-chested, clearly spandex-clad gentlemen.  I paired this one with the this piece of Santa & Co DSP to create an instant look.

White Christmas!




I love this set, too!  I can't wait to do something with these trees and the station wagon with the Christmas tree on top.  The star is the Champagne glimmer paper.  The trees and the hill are dusted with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

I just have to say that I love this set!!  It's so cute and, with all the little seasonal bits,  it's so versatile. This is also my first attempt with Blendabilities.  I didn't think that I'd like them, but they're great!

Ray of Sunshine!




I love the "face" in this set, but I don't believe that this card uses it as well as I hoped.  I should've used glimmer paper for the rays, but I was out, so I fussed with gold glitter on these -- and ended up wearing most of it!

Perfect Peacock!





This was the first set that I wanted from the new catty!  I unfortunately missed the deadline for the new Stampin' Blendabilities, so I did this with my usual method of watercoloring -- lifting the ink directly off the ink pad with an Aquapainter.  The Island Indigo/Wisteria Wonder centers of the feathers are flecked with gold ultra-fine glitter.  By the way, Mossy Meadow is the most glorious color ever!
