Christmas Creatures

Hello, everyone! Thanks for stopping by!  This new set of stamps, just in time to use for Christmas, is just too cute! I'm getting a head-start on my supply of cards for the holidays! I was going through a broken plastic cardstock and paper container, when I came across this red and white background paper - perfect for these stamps! The stamp set is called Christmas Creatures, (shown below) released this month by Chocolate Baroque! (click on the name, and it will take you directly to the page on the Chocolate Baroque site) I absolutely love owls, and I am a fan of the Snowy Owl. I think this little guy is in need of a trip to the hair salon, though!

I went out into the backyard, and found a little stick to use as her perch. I used a branch punch and cut just two sets of the three "toes" from the ends of the branch for Owl's feet. I cut apart some white turkey feathers from my stash, and glued them in layers over the stamped image. I found some shiny black rhinestones to use for her eyes.

Below, I wanted to show that the mistletoeflake had gotten stuck in the tree branches, and part of it was dangling down over the owl's head. Am I overthinking this? The snowflake is from the Gift of Christmas set, shown below.

I love the fact that this little bird even decorated her small plain tree with a beautiful bauble!

Chocolate Baroque Stamps - Poinsettia Joy

Hello!   It's not too early to start thinking about Christmas, as it's already September!  Only three months to go! 

Now, don't you just LOVE these images? The Poinsettia flowers and the word "Joy" are from one of Chocolate Baroque's new clear stamp sets, called Joyful Christmas being released this month! The chapel image is from a new clear set called Christmas Creatures. That's one of the reasons I love, love, love Chocolate Baroque stamps - they coordinate so well with other stamps they produce!
The chapel image was heat embossed in gold, then colored in with Stampin' Up and Copic markers.

This card was very easy to make. It consists of two different styles of image, the shadowed chapel image, and the stylized poinsettia's. The ribbon is 1" wide burgundy grosgrain. I hope you've been inspired, and please come back soon for more new and awesome stamps and examples!  Here are photos of the two stamp sets listed above.
