Christmas Elf Card with Your Next Stamp's Holiday Buddies and Little Notes

Hey, folks!

I'm back with another card! :D

I just found Your Next Stamp this past April, and I'm really enjoying their stamps and dies!  I'm usually not drawn to people stamps [I'm all about animal stamps!], but this elf is pretty cute!  He's from their Holiday Buddies stamp set [which I bought because of the animals, of course!], and after I coloured him with alcohol markers, I die-cut him with the coordinating die.  I can't say "I coloured him with Copics" because I used a mix of different brands.  Copics are great markers, but they're way overpriced, so I just buy what I can find at a good price!

I used the Little Notes stamp set and die set to make that super-cute little clipboard.  I have a thing for anything with an office theme, so I was so happy to finally get the Little Notes stamps and dies during YNS's 40% off sale!  I die-cut the clip of the clipboard from silver cardstock, and I used a black fineliner to write what's on the little note paper. :D

I die-cut the little holly using Taylored Expressions' Little Bits Holly die -- I die-cut multiples of the berries and layered them to give them some dimension.  For the card base, I used We R Memory Keepers dies [linked below].  The card measures just under 4" x 4", so it's a cute little size that just seems easy to decorate and finish.  I shared three more projects using these dies in this blog post. :o)

I'm entering my card in Your Next Stamp's current colour challenge [you just need to use at least three of the colours in order to enter the challenge]:

For some products, the exact version I have is no longer on Amazon, so I've linked to the version that is available.

Until next time! :o)
