A Christmas Bellarific Friday

I think we should just do Holiday cards for the next four to six weeks to help me grow my stash! I STILL have not made a firm decision on my Chrismas card this year, or my mom's for that matter and I'm getting just a little bit angst! At least all the prototypes I have posted in the last few weeks can go into the stash and get put to good use so that will reduce the number that I have to mass produce.

I really don't mind mass producing and sometimes my Holiday cards are just one design reproduced 40 times, or maybe I do 2 or 3 different designs, or sometimes I even make about 10 really special ones and mass produce the rest. It all depends on how much time and energy I have! And let me tell ya, right now, my energy level is at a low so I'm leaning toward something that can quickly be mass produced and still have my stamp of approval.

I think that little Reindeer Circle might just be one of those that get's the approval! He is stinking cute, yet small enough to do several of them without a huge investment in time, and everyone can still get a hand coloured card which I know they all want! A total crowd pleaser! I think next weekend while at Bella Land I may also pick up a couple more circle holiday images!

As usual, he was stamped on bella's bestest paper in brilliance ink and coloured with copic markers, the blue shading was done with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The greetings of the season sentiment was stamped in Imperial Purple versafine ink, then embossed with detail clear embossing powder. Embossing a sentiment on the front of your card is always admired by non-stampers! They always'd you do that? Hehehehe! If they only knew how SIMPLE it was! In case you want to give him a try and maybe mass produce him yourself, here are the colors I used:
E40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47, 33
W00, 1, 2, 3
Y21, 23, 26
R20, 24, 59, G94

Hope you all have a good weekend, me and the hubs are going to Windsor to see the Michael Jackson movie then out for dinner on Saturday. Sunday I'll be at Pickle for their Christmas open house doing demos with copic markers! If you are in the area stop by and say hi....I'll be there between 1 and 3pm! Let me just say Kell has been baking all week and she is a baking GODESS! And they make the BESTEST hot apple cider EVAH!

Hmmmm - does that mean that Kim & Kell are considering having you offer Copics Classes???
Gorgeous card - I would definitely love to receive this one in the mail. Well I would love to receive all your cards in the mail :) Too bad you couldn't clone your creativity and sell it - you would be rich.
