Hooray to new Christmas stamps!

I was so excited when I opened my mailbox and found this great new set from CCdesigns that will soon be released! They are just so adorable and fun to work with. I love the fact that they have these adorable little candy's to accessorize. There are a whole bunch of fun little sayings and so many extras that the possibilities are endless. I think that I am the most excited about this set. My first card is done in in Soft Sky, Real Red, Whisper White and Natural Ivory and Poison Ivory shimmer CS. Image was stamped using masking, and colored in with Copic Markers and the Airbrush system. Spica glitter pens were used to highlight portions. Ribbon is SU Old Olive, and all stamps are CCdesigns.
My next card has the image stamped on Watercolor paper. CS is River Rock, Chocolate Chip, and Basic Grey Fruitcake DP. Image was created with masking and colored in with re-inkers. Glitter was applied to different jellies. Glitter is all Art Institute Glitter in different colors. Crystal effects was applied to the tops of chocolates to simulate the ganash that is at the top of a truffle. Ribbon is May Art and all stamps are CCdesigns.

Lastly this box was created from the template on Flaxy Chick's Blog. I didn't quite get the template to work so I tweaked it to make a tab to join the sides without a gap. CS is Kraft CS, Real Red, Au Cerise DP and Poison Ivory shimmer CS. The panels of the image were cut with the Wizard Nestablilities. Image was colored with Copic Markers, Airbrush system. White applique or puffy white stuff ( can't think of the proper name) was used for the Santa hat and a candy cane was popped on the hand and highlighted with diamond stickles. Ribbon is May Art and all stamps are CCDesigns.
