Santa Was Here...He Says You're The Nicest!

 What every kiddo wants to hear, isn't it? Today's cards were inspired by a little bit of childhood whimsy...and a whole lotta love for colorful snowflakes!

First up, some snowy fun! Did you know we got our very first snow mid October this year? Even by our standards, it's much too early for my liking, but the kiddos sure did enjoy it! 

I would probably be a bigger fan if they were as pretty (or as colorful) as these cuties!

I stamped them up and cut each one with the coordinating die, creating a geometric background.

In the center, I used the gorgeous Joy die to cut out a glittery sentiment.

What a JOY it is to create at this special time of the year. Alongside baking, decorating and trimming the tree, festive crafting is my favorite! It's such a cozy way to forget the bone-chilling winds that howl outside, curling up by the fire, dreaming up colorful creations. I do love it so.

My next card is just what every kiddo dreams of! Piles of presents and treasures to unpack on Christmas morning.

To make my card, I heat-embossed the gift boxes, adding a touch of watercolor to bring them to life.
I used the BRAND NEW watercolor palette from The Stamp Market - it's coming Nov 8th and I'll add a link once it's live.

The sentiments are from a previous (non-Christmas) release, but I love how they pair with this theme!

I also added a little bit of twinkle using the star stamp in the set...Adding it in all over the card.

In case you're curious, all of my goodies today are from The Stamp Market and I must say - what a magical release this has been! I'm loving the way all the pretties mix and match. I've linked up everything for you below, in case your Christmas list is as long as mine! ;)
