Day 1 - Winter Wonderland card set - 31 Days of Holiday Cheer Challenge

Hi Everyone!

I thought it would be fun to create a challenge to make and post a holiday card every day for the next 31 days! The holidays are right around the corner and I thought that it would be fun to make a holiday card or two everyday! So if you want to join - please do and let me know where I can see your holiday cards!!

Today is my first day of the challenge and my last day will be the first day of the New Year! For my card today - I decided to create a set of cards that I am calling the Winter Wonderland card set using the Ready, Set, Snow! stamp set from Taylored Expressions:

 Card Ingredients:
 Stamps: Ready, Set, Snow! stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and copics
Papers: Salt Water Taffy and Sugarcube cardstock from TE
Accessories: Turquoise grosgrain ribbon, button, white gel pen, corner chomper,  Make A Snowflake set of dies Snow Globe die,  Snowfall Embossing Folder

I love all the images from this stamp set - its so hard to pick one - so I made a card with all of them!! I used the awesome Snow Globe die from TE to create a little mini scene in the snowglobes and embossed the Sugarcube cardstock with the Snowfall Embossing Folder

Here is one with a bunny pulling little baby bunnies in a sled --- doesn't that make your heart just go AWWWW!!! They are soooo cute!!! I can't wait to go sledding with my bunnies soon (and by bunnies I mean my kids - just in case you might think that I go sledding with real bunnies - which could be fun too :)!

 Here is another one using the image of this sweet little Fox - he is just adorable --- and yes, the song about what the fox says was playing in my mind while I was coloring this cutie!

I LOVE this little penguin - OMGosh! SO cute!! I actually made two cards using this little guy - adorable! For each card I added a little snowflake from the Make A Snowflake set of dies  and then added a little button to the center:

 Each of the cards was embossed with the Snow Fall Embossing Folder and then adhered to a Salt Water Taffy cardstock from TE - this is probably one of my favorite new colors - it is SO soft and feels like it goes with everything!! LOVE all the new TE cardstock - they are heavy and stand up so well! You can check out all the colors here! Here is another card using the sweet little snowman image - he is adorable!

There are other so many other TE stamp sets like Baby, It's Cold Outside!  and Penguin Pals that also coordinate with the Snow Globe die - perfect for holiday card making!

Thanks so much for joining me today! Please hop over tomorrow for more holiday cheer!
Hugs and Warm Cocoa,
Sankari :)
