Christmas is coming!

October.8.2009

It’s never too early to get started on Christmas cards, is it?  Well….I have got a TON to share with you…or is it ten?  One of those anyway.  How we look at half of those now?

First up:

Peace & Goodwill

Peace & Goodwill

This is one of the very few all stamping cards I’ve ever made.  This is a combo of Inkadinkado, Fancy Pants, and Papertrey Inks stamps.  Oh yeah, there is a little glitter marker coloring too!

Let’s look at another.

Santa's Sleigh

Santa's Sleigh

Here’s a little card I made to enter in the Unity Bro Challenge, but I changed my mind and didn’t enter it.  The ribbon is supposed to be the plaid if you were wondering.  Want to see it closer?

Okay that one I am not very fond of, so let us move on.

Holly Glitter

Holly Glitter

Oh this was a quick and easy one.  The glittery holly is a glitter rub-on from K& Co.  I used my Cricut to cut the scalloped square out of some red cardstock and then just popped it off the card base.  Still cute though, isn’t it?

Do you like clean & simple cards?  How about this one then?

Clean Tree

Oops, somebody wrinkled her card before she took the picture.  Well, you can see how cute it was anyway! 😉

Okay one more and then I’ll be done for today.  I promise.

Merry Christmas Ornaments

Merry Christmas Ornaments

I have a ton of these card bases left from a couple years ago and I really need to use them.  The little ornament stamp is from A Muse and the sentiment is from Papertrey Inks (did I mention that I love this Signature Christmas line?)

Which one do you like the best so far?  Don’t forget I still have more to share!

I have off every other Monday.  This is not one of them.  It stinks only having one day off every other week.  But hey, at least I have a job.

I’m here to share with you another Get Sketchy sketch challenge.  This is sketch #2.  Here is the sketch (the bonus this week was to use punches):

Here is my take on the sketch:

Someone Special Card

Someone Special Card

I finally got my Unity stamps to play with.  The circle one is from the Stylin’ Stars set.  Then I embossed the circle with one of  the Stitched Circles embossing folders with my Cuttlebug.  (I had fun playing with all my new toys this weekend!)  I used a scalloped border by Fiskars to punch those strips.  The brad, sticker and papers are from K&Co.

Here are two more cards for you to enjoy:

Flower Card

Flower Card

This one is almost all K&Co.  With the exception of the glossy paper by Ranger, which I used some alcohol ink to color.

A Muse Trees Card

A Muse Trees Card

On this card the background was stamped with a Fancy Pants stamp and then embossed with white, then I used Tim Holtz distress inks to add the purple color.  The tree stamp is by A Muse.  I think I did a pretty decent job coloring with my Martha Stewart watercolor markers.

I hope you enjoyed this cards!
