Hello friends, it’s still December so I’m still Christmas crafting! Today I thought I would practice my coloring on some cute Doodlebug stamped images from Night Before Christmas.  I created two simple cards and a tag pictured below.   

For each card I started with a kraft cardstock base cut to regular A2 size.  I wanted some of the kraft color to be visible so I layered two pieces of pattern paper together so there was about a quarter inch of kraft showing on the top and bottom of the card.  The red dot layer was cut to a height of 3 1/2 and width of 5 1/2 inches. The red and white striped layer is 2 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. The thin strip in the middle is a border cut out piece from the 6x6 paper pad. I die cut a scalloped stitched rectangle for my scene and blended some blue distress inks onto white cardstock for the background. I used a white shimmer spray on my ink background, though it’s hard to see the shimmer in the photo.  I popped the scene layer and my images up on foam squares. I colored my santa and reindeer images with copic markers and then die cut them with the coordinating Doodle Cuts. I added glitter to the trim and pom of Santa's hat. I die cut a small white banner and stamped the Happy Holidays sentiment and adhered it above the scene. 

For the tag, I die cut a scalloped stitched circle tag out of white cardstock and ink blended the same blue distress inks for the background.  I cut a small strip of white glitter cardstock to create snow at the bottom of the scene. I colored and cut out a Christmas tree and two presents and adhered those with foam squares. I added glitter to my ornaments. I die cut and stamped my banner sentiment and tied it to the tag with ladybug doodle twine.  
The second card is the same style and pattern as the first with a gingerbread theme. These images are from the Visions of Sugarplums set.  Such a cute little gingerbread house! For this scene I added chunky glitter to the chimney, rooftop and steps for a snowy feel and some glossy accents to the windows and some of the candy on the house.  

That does it for my project today. The stamped images are all a great size to create small scenes especially for someone (like me) who is a little intimidated by all the amazing coloring artists out there. It was fun watching these adorable images come to life using my markers. Thanks for stopping by today!
