It's Cold Outside {Purple Onion Designs}

Well hello there. Are you as busy as I am these days? I at least have my indoor and outdoor decorating completed but don't ask me about shopping, wrapping or Christmas cardmaking! All of it complicated by traveling for Christmas and New Years along with the complications that are presented with blended families. But frankly speaking, all of these are first world problems because we know that we are truly blessed.

Since I do not have all the Christmas cards I need completed I decided it was necessary to "cheat" a bit by using the same layout/design but with a different image. And of course the Stacey Yacula super cute images work perfectly for this idea. I started out by stamping Jasper (snowshoe fox), Birch (winter bunny) who is one of my favorite SY images and Icicle (polar bear) onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, colored with Copics and then all fussy cut out. I used the images from the Carolyn Draws Bundle Up Set to create backgrounds stamping with soft stone ink onto linen cardstock for two cards and one onto soft stone cardstock. After adding a strip of patterned paper to each card front, I then cut with a stitched die. Each SY animal was attached with craft foam and the sentiment from the Holiday Blurbs set was stamped directly onto the background panel using PTI and Catherine Pooler ink to match the clothing pieces of each critter. A few holeless silver sequins finished them up.
