Merry Snowmen

I got these stamped images from A Merry Season sent to me by Epiphany from scs and her beautiful card that I had commented on. How amazing of her to have sent me so many images and the card. How kind! I'm loving colouring these guys. I pulled the colours from the dashing pp to colour in the snowmen. I also made a card in the wintergreen colours with these guys. I added in a little landscaping with my su blk marker to make it look like snowy ground. Added lots of snow falling, snowflakes lightyly stamped in soft sky from the snowflake spot set, and stickles for some glitter. This card was fun to make. I'm itching to make more of them. Thanks for stopping by.

Two Christmas Trees

Okay, it's been way too long since I posted any cards on here. Melissa has been on me to get some added. Here I finally am, doing so. I've been making lots of different xmas cards lately. I really just need to decide on one and make 10 of them and then 10 of another one to get my 50 cards done on time. I just find the repetitiveness of doing so many of the same a bore. Here's one of my latest creations. I'm loving my new Season of Joy set, Wintergreen and Dashing patterned papers. I tried two trees at different heights on this card. I'm thinking it looks like I did it by accident though, but really I meant to. I realized when I posted this to scs. I forgot the glitter on the blue tree. I like the look of the white embossed swirls on the certain celery. Added some wintergreen pp, gem brads, paper piercing and a greeting. I'm really trying to keep all my cards simple right now to save on time. I have only about 22 more to make. Yikes. TFL.

Happy Holidays

A simple holiday card. Needed to do something different other then just snowflakes. I used Basic Grey patterned papers. The cranberry crisp and mellow moss go so nicely with this pp. Added some ribbon, punched circles, scallop circle and mounted it all. Used the back of the pp for the middle of the happy holidays.. has a sponged look to it. I'm happy with how this turned out as it's not super detailed, but still is okay without all the extra's or atleast I think that. :o)

Happy Birthday

Another card to sell. Vintage violet, whisper white and another patterned paper. I saw a layout like this on scs and liked it. Though I can't recall who's it was to give credit. I used the cake stamp from Blooming with Happiness. VV ribbon and white organza ribbon. A metal Happy Birthday embellishment that doesn't show well in the pic, but I sponged over it with VV ink. Added a couple word windows folded over and put a eyelet through them.

Eat Cake

Made a few cards last week to sell. I've kept them fairly simple, but hopefully still somewhat detailed with patterned papers, ribbon etc... I used soft sky, choc. chip and a patterned paper that is in brown and blue. The name is escaping me at the moment. I used the In The Spotlight Set for the man image and the wording is from Eat Cake. TFL!

Cards From Stampin Up Party

I had a party on Thurs. night and my great and talented friend Melissa was the creator of these fabulous cards. All S.U. products. The card is really detailed and layered, I just love that. I made my first tent topper card. It's a little gift tag card. We used the baroque motif set on the tent topper card. The Snowflake Spot on the full size card. Check out her blog with all the great items she's been making lately. Colours used are Blue bayou, Soft sky, River rock and patterned paper.
