Christmas Cards in August! Two Cards for you!

Today's cards are two of my favorites (I am quite sure every card is my favorite!).  Both are cased from Stampin' Up! catalogs and changed up to my liking.  I like these because they remind me of images you can "color" like when I was a kid!  Both cards use the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.  If you haven't used this yet, you need to get one!  It makes tags quick and easy!
 I used the new Whisper White Thick Card Stock (I guess it's not that new anymore).  It makes watercoloring a snap!  I have recently become quite the watercoloring fool.  Once I learned to really water-down my colors and start super light - I have LOVED watercoloring.  As my friend Lisa says, you can always add more color but you can't take it away!
 Doesn't this set remind you of the Precious Moments dolls that were popular in the 1980's?  I love this stamp set!  I wasn't too happy with all the extra dots on the tag but it still looks cute.  I added the dots using the new precision glue in the Holiday Catalog and then added the gold glitter.  The background stamp I used is included in the stamp set.  I embossed it using the gold embossing powder.
I never thought I'd be saying this but I am in love with all of the gold I am using!
Come back tomorrow for some more holiday sneak peeks!
