Wow, I was on a card making roll last night!  I made all these (+ one) before I went to choir practice.  Didn’t know I could make them that fast!  I was trying to get some use out of my American Crafts paper.  Which one do you like best?  I like the one with the cork letter stickers.Scalloped Blessings

Tis Christmas

So I had a little shopping spree over the weekend.  I guess I have to start my project count over again.  😦  I didn’t think I’d be able to do it.  Especially at this time of year. 

I did make something with some of the new goodies I got, this Christmas card:

Puffy Christmas

See that cute puffy white sticker?  That’s by Me and My Big Ideas.  Isn’t it cute?   I got a whole sheet of those.  I’ve never seen anything like them before.  I love them!

I really do have  a ton of Christmas cards made already.  Plus I had time to take pictures of all of them.  So now I just need to make the time to share them with all of you.  I sure am loving these Taylored Expressions stamps and I just want to try them on everything.  I picked up some sticky back canvas by Studio on clearance at A.C. Moore a couple weeks ago and finally opened the package up.  Here is what I came up with:

I am also in love with a couple of My Mind’s Eye paper packs.  That is all I seem to be using lately.  So, on this card I stamped the image on sticky back canvas with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  Then I distressed it with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Then I painted some Candlight Shimmerz over the whole image just to make it sparkle.  I’m not sure who the brown gem flourish is from, but I think it is Making Memories.  I also used my new Fiskars All-A-Fleur embossing border punch to make a little embellishment for this card.  Then I stamped the sentiment in the upper corner with the same ink.  After the shimmerz dried i notched the sides of the stamped image and just tore the edges of the canvas off.  I had hoped for a kind of rough edge, but it sort of distorted my rectangle.  Oh well.  I still like the way it turned out.

I believe I told you all that I bought a new set of stamps recently that I absolutely love.  The stamps are from Taylored Expressions.  When I was checking out Taylor’s blog the other day I saw that she had a sketch challenge posted over there.  What a perfect opportunity to work with my new stamps, right?  Check out my take on the sketch:

Oh I love this card.  🙂  The stamps are from Taylored Expressions.  Paper from My Mind’s Eye.

I don’t know if I mentioned that I got a new stamp set from Taylored Expressions or not. Well, I did…and I love these stamps. They are so beautiful and they stamp so nice. I just love them alright? 🙂  Over the summer I bought a lot of Adirondack Alcohol Inks off of eBay.  I don’t use these too often, but I thought I’d pull them out for this card.  I used stream & pearl (I think that’s what it’s called) to make a background for the sky.  Then I stamped the Taylored Expressions stamp on top of this with black StazOn.  This is how it turned out:

Here’s a close-up so you can see the shine of the glossy paper.

I stamped the whole image again and then cut out the outer frame and popped it off the page.  I really like how it turned out.

I was going to post more, but my allergies are driving me crazy.  Sneeze, sneeze, sneeze….maybe I’ll share more tomorrow.
