Memory Box Holiday

 Ahh--I fell in love with the Memory Box Holiday collection!  You can get any of the stamps and supplies you need at

 This little bear card was so easy to make.  I punched a snowflake border out of white cardstock and then stamped and colored the bear with my Copics.  Don't forget to add a little shadow underneath the bear with your BG10 marker!

 These cute little guys are ready for the first snow in their warm scarves! Colored with Copics and mounted on a sheet of their holiday paper--so pretty!  Do you notice the fancy red die on the bottom?  That's one of theirs too!

 This Clean and Simple Card was my favorite from the whole collection.  I stamped it on a rough-toothed paper and then colored with my Prismacolor pencils.  I wanted a rough-sketched look so I didn't even use my Odorless Mineral Spirits with this one--I left the pencil unblended.  I punched a fancy edge and then mounted a bit of Memory Box patterned paper on the inside of the card to let it peek through.

The red dots are another sheet of my 6x6 pad and I used some pretty mulberry paper behind the main image.  I spritzed it with Smooch Spritz to make it sparkle.  The sentiment was punched, stamped and then covered with Versamark and then heat embossed with clear Diamond embossing powder. For the main image I stamped and colored with my Copics and then put some clear double-sided sticky tape on top.  I then sprinkled it with Glitter Ritz clear iridescent glitter.  I finished by adding more detail with my Copics over the glitter.
