Hello! It's getting closer now, are you ready? I'm getting there slowly. I sold a ton of my Christmas cards I made at a local craft show and to a few friends. I need to make some more. This design should be one I could mass produce if needed. I used the new stellar snowflake stencil from GinaK, and some nuvo glimmer paste for the snow flake , added a sentiment and it's done. Be sure to snoop around my blog, I may have tried this in another color... Thanks for stopping by today.

Greeting from a blustery cold and snowy NW Indiana. It's been unseasonably cold and snowy here already. This put me in the mood to make a snow scene card. I do not own any diamond shaped dies and my attempt was ridiculous looking (currently in trash) , so I'm going to push the envelope on the sketch a bit and use an oval stencil. Thanks for stopping by today.

Warm Winter Wishes... I need them

Hello! It turned really cold and icy today . I came home from work (where people turn the heat to 80), I was sweating most of the day... now I'm frozen solid. I'm playing along with the AAA cards CAS #153 challenge and Christmas card throwdown Purple and white challenge.  My snowflake is a new Gina K stencil , I used dreamworks pearlescent paste over it. It's been awhile since I've had some time to play along with any challenges, I missed it. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I hope this snarky card doesn't offend anyone. I saw this sentiment and had to have it. I ink blended the colors , but it looks like my mango looks a bit more peach , I must have picked up a bit of poppy. I have a couple friends who will love this card, going to make plenty more. I've been so busy lately I've not had a moment to myself, mid college visits with my oldest... hopefully he will pick one soon. Thanks for stopping by today.

The Holly and Ivy #59

Hello! I've been super busy making tons for Christmas cards for an upcoming craft show I'm doing. I've tried to make sure I've got all my bases cover... snowmen, Santa, reindeer, snowflakes, trees, bells, gingerbread men,poinsettias ,  angels, and religious cards too. I think this die set might work for Easter too. For someone who was making cards all year,I'm in crunch time now. Normally I'm more together than this, but a good friend ordered 50 from me. I hope you all are fairing better with your holiday cards. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I'm popping by to share my card for this week's sketch challenge. I used a stamp from the oak leaves and acorns set from Colorado craft company , sentiment is SSS. I didn't intend to do a messy watercolor, but once one side started running outside the lines I decided to go with it. The leaves are in full bloom here , what is left of them after today's weather. We had 70 mile an hour wind gusts, trees down and power out all over. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I'm back with a couple of quick and easy Christmas cards to share. For these cards I used the plaid background stamp and trim the tree die from Concord and 9th, sentiment is from PTI. I stamped the background, die cut the tree and added it to the kraft panel for the first card and then added a piece of kraft behind the negative for the 2nd card. I splattered a bit of white paint and added some twine to finish the cards. This is a great way to really bulk up you card supply quickly. Thanks for stopping by today.
