Crafty Elves' Countdown to the Holiday - May 2020!




I'm so excited to be joining the Crafty Elves' Countdown to Christmas this month.  It's a handful of creative designers that join each month on the 25th and share some of their holiday cards.  This was perfect timing as I was cleaning a couple weeks ago and hit the jackpot of holiday stamps that I had bought last year and they were never inked up!

These are the designers:

So here are the four cards I made especially for today:


 I was able to work in some cocoa cards so I'm linking up to the Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop.  We recently went to themeless hops so anything goes, it just needs to have coffee, tea, cocoa, or hot apple cider!



Let's chat about the Hello Bluebird duo first.  So I struck the motherlode when I was cleaning a couple weeks ago.  I came across a bunch of Hello Bluebird winter sets.  Today I'm featuring their Cocoa Party set that you can pick up at Butterfly Reflections Ink who is a Super Sponsor for the hop.

I've teamed those cute critters up with their Gallery Frame #4 and Christmas Words #1 dies.  


For my second card I used the same stamp set but also added their Glacier Peaks Dies + Warm Wishes Words Die.  For both of the cards, I used the Basic Grey Juniper Berry 6x6.  This is also when I should note that my original design did not include the Glacier Peaks until my lovely daughter said it needed 'more'.


I used the same copics for both of my Hello Bluebird cards:

My next two cards feature Clearly Besotted!  I managed to mix 'n match a handful of their stamps.  By the way, they are a new Super Sponsor to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


This first card uses a panel from the Basic Grey 6x6.  I used the Seasonal Line up with the Home Sweet Home set.


For my final card I combined the Seasonal Line Up with Scene It Seasons.  The die cut semi circle is by Super Sponsor Studio Katia!


I used the same copics for both of my Clearly Besotted cards with the exception of the V + BV ones, those are only for my Season's Greeting Card.
