Our Craft Lounge Christmas Cuties!!


So yesterday I shared with you about the new stamp company in town; Our Craft Lounge, did you check 'em out?  Here are a few more cards I made when I had the idea to deck them out for Christmas (compliments of Starving Artistamps' Doodlefactory Santa's Sweet Shoppe - tree above and Pink Cat Studio-dress up Lily's santa hat & candy cane in bottom card).  Can you even believe how PERFECTLY the santa hat fits on Anna Mae, Pat the Dog and P-Nut as if it was MADE for them!?!?  

I created Anna Mae's Christmas scene by hand drawing & coloring the floor with copic markers, adding a wide white baseboard of cardstock above & placing 'wallpaper' on the walls.  That, along Anna Mae's paper-pieced dress are by Basic Grey Eva.  The 'painting' or sentiment on the wall is a small oval nestability with SU!'s retired Fancy Flexible Phrases in the center.  Do you like her dress adorned with pink rhinestones around the collar?  I do - wish I had a dress that cute & don't you just adore her matching striped socks and sparkly shoes?  The sparkle accents on Anna Mae's shoes, bows on the presents & star on the tree are courtesy of my new Copic Atyou Spica pens!! Lastly, her santa hat is trimmed with liquid pearls (because I paper-pieced it with pink paper, it took on the pink hue to match!) 
 
Here is Pat the Dog - sending her love to you at Christmas 2008 - courtesy of JustRite DIY monogram stamper & small alphabet set!  For this card, I used Jen's sketch from Sat. (SFYTT 112208) and 3 patterns from my Basic Grey Figgy paper pad.  I thought these colors went well with Pat's coloring and the pop of red on her heart & santa hat she borrowed from Anna Mae.  I love the sweet look on this doggie's face and how she is loving on that heart!!  

A close-up of Pat's coloring & sparkle from Sakura glitter pen.  I had to dig around for that paw print brad I got from a stamping friend a few years ago, isn't it perfect for this card??

My last card shows P-Nut borrowing Pat's santa hat that was borrowed from Anna Mae.  What I did to make the hat fit perfectly on P-Nut's head but allow her ears to show in front still, was cut slits on the ears & tucked the sides of the hat underneath.  I used Our Creative Corner's sketch from Saturday by Denise for this card which I thought was PERFECT but I ended up not having any room for a greeting, but that's o.k. I think P-Nut's festive garb speaks for itself!  I got the idea for painting her toes red from Cambria's card and decided to give her some blue eye shadow too!  I just got my fancy corner punch from Gina K Designs, I thought it would be a great touch since my card was greeting-less along with a riding hood red button in the corner.  Basic Grey Figgy was used on this card too, along with my Copic Atyou Spica pens. 

Here is a close-up of P-Nut!  I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Cuties!   Pin It
