Four stamp sets combined to create a little Christmas Eve scene

Something that I enjoy immensely is to combine several stamp sets into a little scene.  Here I've used four stamp sets:

Santa Paws - the festive dog
Carols of Christmas (plus coordinating dies) baubles on the tree
Beautiful You - the gorgeous lady
Ready for Christmas (plus coordinating dies) - the tree, gifts and greetings

Colouring is another of my favourite things to do and here I've combined traditional stamping, sponging, Stampin' Blends alcohol markers and just a touch of  Real Red Stampin' Write marker on the red gift.

I created my scene on a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I had cut to size and then applied it to my Crushed Curry card base.

I hope you've enjoyed this this card and I welcome your comments. 

Thank you so much for joining us today. We hope you'll join us again next month for our Sale-A-Bration projects! I'm Stephanie Fischer and to keep hopping around see the list below to see who is up next with another great technique.
