Holly Jolly, Very Merry, Merry Christmas!

Whew!  Here's another 3 cards that have been received by their respective recipients.  These were done ala Cat Craig style of Cat Luvs Paper.  I know others have done this technique (partial die cutting by Laura Bassen and Jennifer McGuire) but Cat's seems to be the one that really made me wanna try as it was a little different.  Cat's technique is where you die cut the image vertically on one side so it hangs over some pretty patterned paper; others have had their images peeking out a window, behind a shaker etc.  So I couldn't do just one but decided to try 3 different cards since I had so much fun!  Take a gander at these...

Products -
   MFT Santa's Elves *dies, MCS Joy To The World, Copics, misc pp (it really does match the greens better IRL)

Products -
   MFT Toasty Greetings *dies, Copies, Wink of Stella, MFT Sweet Celebration 6x6 pack



Ok, I have to admit I accidentally cut this bear completely off the panel -- oops!  So I made the most of it and attached it to my half panel, and well....went with it!  It's still cute but I wish I hadn't cut it off, live and learn.
Products -
   MFT Cool Day *dies, MFT Sweet Celebration 6x6 pp, Copics, Wink of Stella

Well I managed to finish up my gifts/tags for co-workers and get them ready for tomorrow.  I wrapped a couple last small presents and put the candy in the stockings (no one will be around to see it til Christmas so I'm safe)!

Hope you're on top of things and your holidays won't be stress-filled.  Happy Tuesday to all...
Hugs,
TK

  2. Your coloring skills are really getting fine-tuned, TK! Wow!!! You know I love #1 and #3 characters, but where has that snowman been all my life? Always 'just go for it' my friend - you'll find the most fun to be had ...

  4. I love that partial die cutting too, TK, and seem to forget about it. It looks great on all your cards as does your coloring of the images.

  5. TK I think you have taken this to the next level. I adore every single one. I actually was inspired by Therese at "lost in paper" She made those MFT elves look so adorable. I'm on my iPad and I have no idea how to link. I do think my post had a link to her cards as well.
