Crafty Elves Countdown to Christmas - August 2021 Edition!

Welcome!  It's time for the Crafty Elves to share the Christmas Cards we've made this month!  And we have a new elf joining us this time around.  Misty Lavigne is joining us and be sure to head on over to her YouTube channel while you're hopping!  While you're at it don't forget to stop and see Debra and Michael!  Lots of fun and inspiration!  But before you go, stay a while and see what I've for you today:

I had printed this adorable digi from Angie Blom last month and didn't have time to do anything with it then so I colored it up for August.  I added it to an alcohol inked background that I added a snowflake border to using a stamp from Rubbernecker and some alcohol lift ink.  It's a nice flat card great for mailing and I just love that image with the adorable pup driving.  The set is called Joyful Christmas Ride.

These are the Copic Markers I used for that one.

The rest of my cards are using images from an adorable Colorado Craft Company set called Christmas Presents! It's just one of the many adorable Anita Jeram sets over there and I love it!

I love this image from the set with that pup on top of the presents!  I used the birdhouse from AJVD as a dog house and some of the Gingerbread accessories to dress it up!

And for this one I made another alcohol inked panel:

I tried a little alcohol lift on this one too, but it didn't quite workout.  I think I waited too long to buff them... so I decided instead to use the snowflake stencil from CAS-ual Fridays to add some snowflakes with Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel.  I added vellum to the back of the window, and put a few snowflakes behind it and popped the whole thing up.  And then that little patient pup waiting to open his presents... 

When I made the background above and was using the Alcohol ift Ink, I stamped off the snowflakes onto another piece of cardstock for a light snowflake background.  (As you're lifting the ink, there is some ink on the stamp that can then be stamped off onto another panel):

This one is about as clean and simple as I ever get... I added some snowdrops with the glitter gel and then popped up a photo frame over it and added the bunny from the C3 set!

That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed it and you'll come again soon!  Be sure to head on over to Misty, Michael, and Debra's places!  The links are at the top.  And before you go let's see who won some Happy Mail from last month's post:

And we're playing again so leave me some love and come again soon!

I love the cute bunny, so tired from all his gift wrapping, that he needs the little birdie to help him finish. lol Always impeccable cards full of interest & cuteness.
