Got Joy Holiday Card Series...

Good morning!

Today I’m joining the Got Joy Creations Holiday Series for 2019 over on Dana's blog.  You'll want to be sure you follow this series over the next few weeks for amazing holiday inspiration from all of the talented card artists Dana has invited to join her. There will be discount codes and giveaways that you will need to leave comments on each post here in order to qualify to win. Dana will also be sharing cards and tutorials and I know for a fact she will have a few surprises to share with you too!
For my card today I chose a mix of old and new stamps from Purple Onion Designs to tell the story of little Red, the lumberjack beaver, and his robin pal, Silver, going in search of the perfect Christmas tree. On many of my cards I enjoy the challenge of coloring in backgrounds from scratch but when awesome background stamps like the new Winter Trail are available it makes the whole process quicker and easier, who doesn't love that? So I stamped the bundled up critters first, masked them both off using removable post it tape, then stamped the large background right over top of them. Once the tape it peeled away they now look like they are residing within the scene. To complete my vision of these cute holiday revelers I still ended up free handing in the felled Christmas tree but I think it fits in pretty seamlessly with the rest of the stamped images. All Red and Silver have to do now is figure out how to get that darn tree back up the hill, LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Wonderful card. Your coloring is beautiful. Thank you for including the copic colors you used. That really helps when I want to duplicate a color choice.
