One Crazy Stamper Challenge

Good Morning Ladies,
I am trying something different today. I am entering a different challenge. It is the One Crazy Stamper Challenge
You can see the and join the challenge here
The challenge is Halloween/Christmas.
You may use any stamped image. (no digital images)
Here is my card for the challenge.....
I chose a new image I picked up at the Fort Wayne stamp show. It is one of their big and little stamp sets. The stamp it's self is not Christmas but makes the cutest Christmas card. He was stamped on Bristol paper and colorized with Prisma pencil and Gamsol. He was then hand cut. I chose a Sizzix Flip-it card as my base. The DSP is from Echo Park. The poinsettia was created using a Cheery Lynn flower die.

Whiff of Joy Joy

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a great time with my mom and friend Judy yesterday at the crafty day. We got all of my mom's candy bar wrappers done. She is ready for the great Grandchildren on Halloween. And we did it in record time and were able to play with other creative things. So fun!!
The card for today is Whiff of Joy Joy
The reindeer and his birdy friends is an image from The Whiff of Joy. I just love their stamps. He was stamped on watercolor paper and colorized with Stampin' Up watercolor crayons. His sleigh bells were colorized using US Art Quest Mica paint. This paint is a watercolor palette with shine and sparkle. This panel was then matted on black card stock. Red and black checked paper covers the card base. The joy embellishment came from the Dollar Tree. You can find some really cool embellishments at the dollar store. It is one of my favorite haunts.

This is the inside sentiment. It is from an old Stampin' Up set.
