Christmas cards made from scraps

Good Afternoon!

I decided it was time to clean up the scrap paper, both cs and dp papers. The two cards I would like to share are made just from the scraps.
The snowman and holly leaves stamps are ones I have had for a few years and I could no longer read the company that made them so I am sorry I can not tell you that.

The snowman was stamped with black brilliance ink and the embossed with clear embossing powder. I found out it is a bit difficult to color this image embossed. I used my prisma pencils and OMS. There is a bit of sparkle and shine on the snowman's hat, nose, cheeks and scarf. First I water colored with the glitter pen then covered with crystal lacquer. The pinkish snow flake is a new spellbinder's die set I picked up at hobby lobby. There are 5 different sizes of snowflakes in the set. I added two to the inside but did not take a picture of them. I used a textured piece of cs for the snowflakes then sanded them for a different look.
This next card I actually had the card base done for several weeks ago when I was playing around with different card designs. I wasn't sure what stamp(s) would look good with it and I am still am not sure I picked the right ones, what do you think?
The poinsettia is from A Year of Flowers. I colored both with copics. For the holly leaf image I water colored the berries with the glitter pen and then covered with crystal lacquer. I also water colored the poinsettia and used gold sticklers in the middle.
The inside of the card is textured cs that was run through the cuttlebug using the argyle embossing folder, and then sanded.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great rest of your day!
