Aren't the Doodle Stamps the cutest thing ever?! I was so excited to receive the new wonderful stamps and die sets from the Night Before Christmas Collection in my mail. As soon as I saw them, I knew that I wanted to create some holiday-themed cards for friends and family so I prep my desk, grabbed some paper and started working.

To create my cards I started by stamping some of the images from the Visions of Sugarplums and Night Before Christmas Stamp Set onto white smooth cardstock with an alcohol-friendly black ink. Then, while I was stamping some of the candies from Visions of Sugarplums Stamp Set, I decided that instead of having each image as an individual piece, I would turn them into a pattern instead and that way make my own DIY "pattern paper".

After I finished stamping the images, I first colored the candy pattern I created using some Copic markers. Since there were several images to color in this pattern, the whole panel took me a few hours to complete but was worth every second because I had lots of fun! Once the coloring was done, I added some glossy accents in some of the candies to make them look more realistic. Following up, I trimmed the panel at 4" x 5 1/4" inches, mounted it onto an A2-size top folding card, added a sentiment, and the card was done!

For my second card, I colored three more images- a gingerbread house and two trees- again, using some Copic markers and also added some glossy accents in some areas for extra detail. Next, I created a nice Christmas scene with the colored images and added some pattern paper from the Night Before Christmas 6 x 6 Paper Pad, a sentiment, and some sequins and sprinkles to finish it all up.

Now for the last card, I decided to try a different approach and create a super fun shaker card. To create my window shaker I used the Nesting Scallops Doodle Cuts and backed it up with an acetate piece. I then grabbed some Sugar Coating Glitter and some Sequins and filled the window with a mix of them. Last but not least, for the sentiment, I went with the classic "Merry Christmas" and finished up the card by adding some sequins, mini jewels, and sprinkles.

That is it for today. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and liked the ideas I shared. If you have any questions just leave a comment below or send me an email. I'll be happy to help you
