Seriously, I thought I was done with Christmas card supplies for this year and had all my cards planned out, but then I saw this set release video and some demos and I just really wanted to make some.  Of course, it seemed to be super popular, and seemed to be instantly sold out EVERYWHERE I looked!  So I ended up ordering this stamp set directly from Honey Bee Stamps and it arrived pretty quickly but then I realised – should’ve bought the die too – duh.  snow buddies stamp set honey bee stampsSo then I had to wait till my die set arrived, and here we are

I stamped out four of this little group but for some reason the one on the top left went a little awry and can’t be used, so that little group can be my tester.

Sorry about the light on these as they were all done at night and the lighting was not great.

I coloured them in with my Faber-Castell polychromos pencils – if this card looks blue it’s because it is lol, and it’s not the bad lighting 🙂

After they were all coloured in, I added some clear sparkle stickles and nuvo drops to represent snow, and then added some clear nuvo drops the Christmas baubles, blrd and accessories.

I cut the cardstock down to size and mounted them on some Gina K cardstock.  These are pretty big cards – my standard size lol – using one full sheet of letter sized cardstock folded in half.
