Anita Jeram Christmas release with Colorado Craft Company...

 


Hello friends!

Today Colorado Craft Company is releasing four new Anita Jeram Christmas stamp sets and we are celebrating with a blog hop! There are three 4"x6" sets and one mini 2"x3" set, each of them full of that delightful holiday spirit. And what better way to help spread that holiday spirit than with a little giveaway? At each stop on this hop one lucky commenter will be randomly selected to win the darling 2"x3" Hanging Stockings set. As always, the more participant's posts you visit, the more chances to win. If you've arrived here from Donna's blog then you are right on track and next you will want to head over to Kelly's blog to continue hopping. If you get lost at any time you can always find the full list of participants on the 3C blog. The giveaway ends on November 23rd at midnight mountain time and winners will be announced on the 3C blog on the 25th.

For my first card, I stamped Santa Bunny visiting some baby bunnies in their cozy burrow on Christmas Eve. The card base is a mini slimline size so I let Santa's feet and the bottom of the bed extend off of the bottom of the card when stamping to leave room for the large sentiment above. I colored in the background to look like packed dirt and even added some tree roots growing in and out of the wall. Those baby bunnies look quite comfy on their bed of hay, though it looks like one of them has spotted their midnight visitor. :)


 

For my second card I stamped the Hiding Presents mouse and bunny high up on the same mini slimline die just turned vertically. This left plenty of room at the bottom for the large sentiment. I kept the color palette really soft and simple on this sweet scene and added falling snow as a nice finishing touch. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck on the hop!

Amy, your scene-making abilities just blow my mind! How adorable are these cards?? Incredibly adorable! I have chosen Hiding Presents as my favorite - but I'd love to do a little 'stamp surgery' to include the NINE bunnies from my own family!

Hi, Amy - Wow!! I am always impressed by your talent. Still true! Even more so, actually... I love how the first card's background really gives the homey appearance of a rabbit den with those "packed dirt" walls. Your coloring is extraordinary. I love the second card even more, if that's possible. The colors you chose there and the gorgeous snow and background make the scene gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!! I'm going to have to pick up these items. I love the Anita Jeram line at CCC.
