Colorado Craft and Anita Jeram - Winter Holiday Release

Hello Friends! Just when you thought you'd seen all the cute and adorable Christmas and holiday stamps, there's a new release that's come to town from Colorado Craft Company featuring the ever popular Anita Jeram AND Kris Lauren artistry! 

I'd love to share a few cards made with these goodies. You may have come from Kassi Hulet, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with Adrienne Kennedy.

Come on, how can you NOT love this little guy "helping" with the presents under the tree!? He's from Furry Christmas and is ready to bring some holiday cheer to anyone on your list. 

The tree is colored with a chartreuse and aqua watercolor to mix things up a bit. Since I wanted the focus to be on the long present I made it as RED as possible. The coloring of the dog is very similar to the back of the packaging - always a great place to start when you first color up an image. 

There are a lot of good sentiments also included in this set, so I used two of them here. I like doubling up like that when it works out. 

Another cutie, Christmas Obsessed features a build-your-own-scene set of stamps for you to decorate the twigs the mice came across in the snow. My intention was to stamp this on an A2 sided base and then die cut it smaller to create a few layers. When I was done coloring, I fell in love with the innocent simplicity so much that I decided to just leave it. 

To spice it up a bit, I added chunky glitter to the snow mounds in the shadows. 

Yep, a good old-fashioned one layer card. No border, no layers, just tons of white. And cute mice decorating their 'hood : )

Final set for me, this is one from Kris Lauren - Merry Christmoose

The set has two different Christmoose's to choose from - I had to go with the one in the PJ one piece and the Santa slippers, naturally. Since the moose is rather tall and thin, I made him into a panel flap along the top of the card.

If you raise the panel flap you'll see the Christmas Background in its entirety. Super cute and easy to color since there are only a few different images. 

Also forgot to mention I borrowed the dangling ornaments from Christmas Obsessed to decorate the moose's antlers, in the spirit of things. Or maybe they are festive earrings?

That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed taking a look at the three cards.
