Christmas Eve card

Post number 80 for the year.  I made it, and I have a few more to share.

I stamped this card using Lovely as a Tree from Stampin Up, the Santa sleigh and reindeer came from an Inkadoo stampset and the sentiment (which is not straight-lol) comes from a Recollections stamp set.

This card was made by stamping, masking and sponging.

Winter Frolic Christmas

This is post 79 for the year, as I mentioned I wanted to have 80 posts for the year.  Yeah I'm gonna make it, I have a ton more Christmas cards to post.

Another cricut Christmas card.  I love the winter frolic cartridge. 

Christmas Snowman

Here is a Christmas card that was made at a card Class with Janice Wardrop.  I love the sparkle and simplicity of the card.  All supplies are Stampin Up.

Christmas Paper Scraps

Last year I attended a card class where we used strips of paper to form the background for a card.  I lived this technique as it is so great for using scraps.  This card is simple you just cut your scraps into strips.  I cut a 5.25 by 4 inch piece of cardstock and ran it through my xyron.  I then took strips of my Christmas paper and started attaching in a pattern.  I cut the base for the sentiment and stuck it on the front of the card.

Baby Henry

I thought that I'd post a baby card that I made for a baby luncheon we had at work today.
I used my cricut imagine for this card and the Nursery Tails cartridge.  I also used Plantin School book for the H.  I switched up the colours for the baby sign.

It's Christmas

Here is a really simple card I made with a stamp from Heathers (Heathers closed in January of 2015, I sure miss the store).  I don't remember the name of the stamp and as I mentioned in a previous post I have packed all my Christmas stamps away.  I used Stampin Up watercolor pencils for this.

My final dryer sheet card for 2015

I had an errand to run for a client this past Saturday, I happened to know that there was a Scrapbook store just down the street.  So before I headed home I just had to stop in.  Two of my favorite stamp sets are from Stampin up, Lovely as a tree, and I can't remember the name but is the post just before this one.  Well I found a stamp at the store it is from Frog's Whiskers Ink, and is called k1043 Backwoods.  Having this new stamp I just knew I had to make one final dryer sheet card.  So here it is.

Simple and fast Christmas Card

This is a super fast and simple card.  It is a stampin up set (I don't remember the name, and I put all my Christmas stamps away).  Card base and two layers are cut, the image is then stamped with versamark, and green embossing powder added, then heat set.  Finally just put it together.

Preserve a Christmas

Well 2015 is almost over, wow this year has gon so quickly.  My goal this year was to have 80 posts, I'm not sure I will make it but I will try to get there, I'm very close.  I have to say I really admire those who manage to post everyday. 

Anyway this card uses Perfectly Preserved and an Inkadoo stamp set.  I also used the cricut for the red background piece.

Cardinal Dryer Sheet card

I saw a recent post where someone had done a dryer sheet card with the new stampin up cardinal stamp.  I don't have that stamp but a similar one from stampin up a few years ago.  I thought I would give it a try.  I colored the cardinal with stampin up markers and did not like the way it turned out, so I restamped the image and colored it with copics instead.  I don't think I'm really happy with the card but it is still usable.  The card is glittery but it is very difficult to see that in this photo.

Merry Christmas snowflake card

Oh my I have been lazy in my posts, I have made over 75 Christmas Cards, and have only posted one or two.  Well here is another

Here is a card I made, the inspiration for this card came from Gina K, I used the Paper Trimmings cricut cartridge for the snowflakes, and I used a new Stampin up stampset for the the greeting (I'm sorry I don't remember the name of the stampset and I have put all my Christmas stamps away).

Christmas is coming.

Man Christmas is getting close.  I have a ton of cards to post.  Here is the first of the cards.  I got the idea for this card from Pinterest, and I'm sorry but I don't remember the person who posted the card.  I used my standard Staples cardstock for this card and silver glitter paper from the Dollar Store.

On another note my dog is terribly ill right now and is spending the next 48 hours at the Vet.  Please keep him in your prayers.
