Holiday OSAT Blog Hop


Welcome to the OSAT Back to School Blog Hop! Thanks for checking me out, and please continue on with the hop by clicking Next at the bottom of this post! I made a simple and fun watercolored christmas card with some paper piercing around the edges for an added finishing touch. PLUS, a set of cute Christmas critters!

I used one of my favorite Christmas sets from this years Holiday catalog, Christmas Cuties, for this easy and fun watercolor card. To make the watercoloring even easier, i used white embossing for the little dude and snowflakes. The raised embossing holds each watercolor in it’s specific place instead of mixing with the area colors.  Do you like the pierced edges? I just used the paper piercing essentials pack and my paper piercer to add that bit of detail.

My next project utilized the Cutie Pie Thinlits to make a set of Christmas Critters. Aren’t They just adorable?!? I LOVE them.

Santa’s mustache came from the bird builder punch while the white tuff on Santa’s hat came from the new tree builder punch.

Rudolph’s antlers are from the Word Window Punch and his ears are the wings from the bird builder punch.

  1. Your card is adorable, I love that watercolor makes it look like it has a glowing effect, and it’s got movement, kind of in a northern lights kind of way! Cute critters and great idea using the bird punch for a mustache!

  2. Oh my goodness so many awesome projects!! I’m a little bit obsessed with watercoloring right now so I love your Christmas Cuties card. I haven’t seen amazing projects like yours using those Cutie Pie Thinlits. I think my favorite is the Santa… or the Elf. Don’t make me choose!
