New Christmas Sprites Mini Coloring Book from Aurora Wings

Today on the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog we're celebrating the publication of the new Christmas Sprites Mini Coloring Book.  Both teams have come together to bring you a peek of the 6 new adorable Sprites exclusive to this book.  These will NOT be available as digis EVER, but can be scanned to your computer to use again and again.  There are 12 Sprites total.  Six of your previous holiday faves plus the new six. WooHoo!

I have the pleasure of showcasing the new Gingerbreadman Sprite along with his little friends.  Don't they look just YUMMY?  I decided they would make a fabulous cover for a Christmas Cookie recipe book.  Don't you agree?

Here's a closeup.  They're colored with Copics with a double dose of Diamond Glaze on their frosting details.

I'm entering this in the Alphabet T is for Tis the Season Challenge, and the Jingle Belles Bring Us Some Figgy Pudding challenge and Crimbo Crackers Kraft or Buttons or Both.

And here's Stocking Sprite.  This sweetie made me think of Baby's First Christmas so I used baby soft colors and textures.

Here's a close up.  The majority of this was done with paper piecing, flocking, and a generous dose of Stickles.  I printed him on blue and pink card stock as well as white and fussy cut and layered the images after flocking some of them with white.  The white flocking softens the colored card stock.

Before flocking the stocking, I used a paint pen to color the snowflakes white. After flocking, I used a small stylus to scrape away the flocking and carefully added Stickles and little diamonds to the centers.  Lots of tiny pompoms and fuzzy rick rack add a bit more texture.  Here's a better view of the sparkle too. 

I'm entering this in the Outlawz Twisted Thursday ATG/Paper Piecing Challenge,  the C.R.A.F.T. Christmas Challenge and Inspiration Destination ATG.

Available NOW on Etsy HERE.

And more good news.  All existing AW Holiday Sprites are 30% off in the Sale section of the AW Etsy Shop and here is an additional coupon for any DIGITAL STAMP purchase of  $10 USD or more.

Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.


  1. The holiday cookie recipie book! What a great idea! I love how you made the Gingerbread Man Sprite and Friends look so yummy and fun with your fantastic coloring. The background papers add the warm and cozy holiday feel - exactly the way the homemade baked goodies make us feel. And OMW, how precious is your Stocking Sprite!?!?! Love your attention to detail in bringing the stocking design to life - can't believe all the different textures you packed in there. "Baby's First Christmas" is such a perfect approach to this image. It's magical! I want to pick it up and cuddle it. ^_^ Thank you so much for your fantastic inspirations for today's showcase at Aurora Wings, Donna!!
