Another Christmas Card


I really should make some other types of cards, but I need to build up the stash for Christmas. Here's another one I did this last week. I'm trying to use of some of my scraps, and I found these Snowflakes that I had in a secret drawer of my Creative Memories cutter. I don't think it is suppose to be a secret, but I always forget about it and find all sorts of goodies in there. Anyways, the snowflakes are from Spellbinders. The circle sentiment is from Denami Designs as well as the ear muffs. The earmuffs come in a set of four and I thought they would go perfect in the centre of the sentiment.


Recipe:

Stamps: Denami Designs, A Muse Sentiment
Paper Stamper’s Select White, SU Old Olive; glittered paper, dp from Scrapworks - Season of Joy Trim a Tree
Ink: Mamento Black, New Sprout & Bamboo Leaves
Accessories: Copics, Nestabilities, Snowflake die cuts from Spellbinder, Word Window Punch and Modern Label Punch,Gems & SU Brads, Olive brads from stash,


A Winter Song



Winter Song is the name of this stamp from Elzybells Art Stamps. I love colouring her because all you have to do is colour her to match the paper and she looks good everytime. I wasn't sure about the ribbon, but I think it works.

Star Light


Here's one of my new Elzybells Art Stamps inked up. I have this Memory Box dp that looked like a nights sky and thought it would go well with this stamp. I think this one would make an easy one to reproduce for Christmas. The bottom is cuttlebugged with the Snowflake embossing folder.

Winter Log Cabin


I started this card today before I went to the soccer fields at 9:00 a.m. and finished it four hours later. I saw on the Spellbinders blog where they had covered the Impressabilities with VersaMark and embossed the finished product with embossing power. I ran it through the Cuttlebug on Kraft Cardstock. I then embossed it with Winter Wonderland embossing powder. I then die cut it with the SU Top Note. I love how it turned out.

I finally had some time today to put finishing touches on cards and upload them. I've been getting hasseled by some people(you know who you are) to update this blog.

I follow the PaperFections blog and there was a tutorial on colouring red fruit with copics. It was pretty easy once I got going.
