Quick and Easy Christmas Card

Here is a fast Christmas card. The card bas is glorious green from stampin up.  The red is real red from stampinup, the white is from staples.  I used a cuttlebug embossing folder and stamp from Lovely as a Tree, the sentiment comes from a Close to My Heart set.
The bling is from the dollar store.  The ink is glorious green.

quick and easy card

I found a youtube video, 10 cards in 20 minutes.  I can't think of the Stampin Up demonstrators name but she has some neat ideas (and money saving techinques).  I didn't have all the stamps she had but I improvised...Brandy, is her first name.

Dryer sheet Xmas

One of my favorite stamp sets is Stampin Ups Lovely as a tree.  I found a video on Youtube for this card.
I used Early Espresso as the card base and layered it with Soft Suede.  I used white cardstock from Staples.
The ink is soft suede, the trees are stamped after inking once then stamping the tree twice (per inking).
The ribbon is from the dollar store.
I used a gain dryer sheet and sprayed it with Elmers spray glue, attached the dryer sheet to the white cardstock and then sprinkled Close to my Heart fine glitter on it.

Mrs Claus card

here is a fast simple Christmas Card.
I used real red cardstock, and staples white cardstock.  Black ribbon for a belt.  Dollar store brad for the belt buckle and a cuttlebug folder.  I used Formal Occasions cricut cartrige and cut the image twice so I could add the white trim to the dress.

Window Christmas Card

I bought this window die over a year ago,  I had to have it, but then I couldn't figure out what to do with it.  I saw a post on pintrest that used this die, here is the card I made with it. 
I used  stampin up card stock, Martha Stewart punch for the wreath, Lovely as a Tree stamp set (its a shame its retired), and the swiss dots cuttlebug folder.

Simple Thank You

Here is a simple thank you card I made this morning.
I used Recollections CardStock for the base and the matting of the sentiment and image.
I used scraps of white cardstock I had laying on my work area.
The printed paper is from a paper pack/pad from Stamping Up.
The sentiment is from Stamping Up, as is the ink which was Rose Red, and on the flower pot I used Close to Cocoa for some light sponging.

The Flower pot was cut from Walk in my Garden, and was cut at 1 3/4 inches.
The Flower is on Art Philosophy (is flower 1) and is cut at 2, 1 3/4, 1 1/2, 1 1/4, and one inch.
The pearl is from Martha Stewart's collection.

Losing a friend

One of my neighbours lost their dear pet Sasha last week.  I saw Sasha a couple of days before she passed and I do believe that she is in a better place (of course that doesn't help the pain of losing a pet).  Sasha was 16 years old and was so loved by her family.
Below is a card I made for the family.  I found the inspiration for this card on Pintrest.
