'Tis Almost the Season...

 If you're in need of some more adorable inspiration for Christmas cards, then I hope these cuties will do the trick. 
Here is a sampler of Rick St. Dennis' Candlelight.  She is one the newest stamps available over at
I was given the wonderful opportunity to play around with two more stamps and here are my projects I hope inspire you for the holidays.


Following the incredible tutorial here over at PaperHaus Magazine, I've created a handmade canvas using this cutie for a holiday decoration.

and on to decorating the canvas


 What's this???
 Homemade paste with the credit going to this post here!
Alongside my homemade stencils made on the Cameo Silhouette cutter.

Still following PaperHaus
directions...
 

A little fun with her garments...
Using Cotton Crinoline from The Funkie Junkie Boutique
Finished project with Mrs. Claus on a canvas
and still another project with lots of pictures...

I decided to create a little birdhouse with this cutie.

Finished Christmas Birdhouse Ornament...

I hope if you needed some mojo that this post has helped you.  Thank you goes to all the crafty people that have shared their recipes and techniques with me as well.
Happy crafting, coloring, stamping, and creating to you!
hugs,

Your canvas is very beautiful and the background is so nice and blended perfectly to showcase Ms Claus. The Elf and the house are adorable I really love how you created a scene, these are going to look fabulous all set up at Christmas time. Awesomeness!
