Crisscross Christmas

Well, I made myself get into the dungeon yesterday while the girls were at Kindergarten. I wanted to make my very own crisscross card from scratch. I had to improvise on the band as I noticed after that it had to be 12". I really don't own much 12" paper, so had to use turq. pp for it. I pulled out those MS glitters again. I'm going glitter coocoo. Can't stop myself it seems!
As always, it's hard to get a good picture. The word on the little inside piece of paper says wish! I wish for a new vehicle for Christmas. hee hee. After a $500 bill today, I can dream that right.... :o)


Stamps - Small Script
Papers - The Paper Company - Snowflake Sentiments, SU Tempting turq. pp, cool carib., tempt. turq.
Inks - MS glue pad
Accessories - small corner rounder, MS snowflake, gem brad, MS glitters.

Happy Weekend to all!

Plum Sky Snowflake

I bought this paper at a local LSS a couple weeks ago and just love the big embossed sparkly snowflakes on it. Matches up to the perfect plum and soft sky perfectly. I made the card to the size of the snowflake. I was able to get 3 similar cards from the 12x12 and some leftover for other play. Added a couple MS snowflakes with diamond icicles all over them for a little something more. I've been really trying to keep the majority of my xmas cards simple so I can get all of them made.


No stamps... must be a first for me.
Paper - Best Creations PP, soft sky, perfect plum.
Accessories - MS artic snowflake punch, diamond icicles.

Short and sweet like the time it took me to make this card!

Thanks for peaking in!

Glittery Christmas

I got the idea for multi colours of glitter on one image from stampnextra's Technique Tuesday's.
I have just gotten the MS glitter package and thought I'd try those. It turned out to be really easy to use 3 different colours. I love the look of the multi colours that was on stampnextra's tree and might have to do that tree for my next card. Since, I have no kiddies, I best get into the dungeon to create. 1 month until Christmas! Can you believe it? Enjoy your Sunday!


Stamps - Season of Joy
Papers - SU winter PP, Real red, baja and old olive
Inks - MS glue pad
Accessories - MS snowflake punch, Shimmerz - Angel Wingz, MS glitters - Turq., Garnet, Peridot, red ribbon.

Blue Blue Christmas

I wanted another quick and simple Christmas card and this is what came together. I'm such a lucky girl.. well I guess I'm no longer a girl, but lady just sounds to old and mature. :o) Anyways, my Mom bought me MS's 18 pack of different coloured glitter. Yippee! So, this is using the turquoise glitter on the tree and word Sparkle. I used the sakura glue pen for the glitter to adhere to.

No kids both nights this weekend, so I best get my butt into the dungeon and get creating. I want to be able to have cards made to give to my Mom to give out.


Stamps - Season of Joy, Warm Words
Papers - SU new winter one, Soft sky, Baja breeze, WW

Have a great weekend!

I have my girls xmas party coming up soon and we do the steal a gift game. This year I had thought of making a jewellery set for the gift exchange. Luckily, my Mom's friend Pat makes jewellery, so I was able to go to her house and have all of her jewellery expertise to help assist me in my attempt at jewellery making. I knew I wanted the set to be in black and white, but I didn't have the foggiest for all the inbetween stuff. Using the board to lay it out sure helps and Pat's and my Mom's opinions helped me come up with this set here. It sure can take awhile to put one of these all together. I hope my friend who gets this appreciates the thought and time I put in to it. My first thought was to keep it for myself and go and grab something else for the exchange. hee hee.

I can not get a good picture of my cards or of this set today. I need a UTT light or something more powerful. Shop shop shop!

Happy Christmas crafting and shopping!

Crisscross Cards

I have always wanted to make one of these cards, but I don't have the patience for the intricate crafts. Well, lucky me... I had made a comment on a crisscross card on Diane Jahner gallery(djahner) and she said she would send me one. On a day when I was sick and barely off the couch, my package showed up. A crisscross card made by her and one for me to put together. It was super easy with it all being cut out and the directions for me to make them in the future. Diane's is the card on the right and mine is the one on the left she sent me, minus/plus a couple things. I made a boo boo on the center snowflake piece and had to do something else in place of it.

Thank you again Diane!
What a great RAK!

Now to get back to those Christmas cards! Talk about procrastinating.

Cupcake Christmas SC 195

I got an idea one night laying in bed to use real sprinkles on one of my cupcake stamped images. I bought the red sprinkles for a Christmasy look. Used last years SU's holiday pp for the cupcake bottom, as well as for pp on the card. Is it called Dasher? I can't recall the name!
I used sc 195 for the layout. Added some ribbon, but it is still missing something. I need to learn how to tie a bow. Just can't get them right. Is it a lefthanded thing or a me thing?
I used shimmerz - Angel Wingz all over the vanilla cardstock behind the cupcake and on the sentiment piece. Added the shimmer pen to the edges of the vanilla scallops and as little dots inside the big dots.
Stamps - Hero Arts Cupcakes, Lots of Thoughts
Papers - Dasher PP?, Real red, Vanilla, Non SU green
Inks - Black, Old Olive,
Accessories - Ribbons, brads, nesties, red sprinkles, punches, shimmerz - Angel Wingz, shimmer pen.
Are you done all of your Christmas cards? I'm not even close. Yikes! Looking forward to new supplies to play with. This years SU pp is on order!
Thanks for taking the time to take a peak!
Leave me your blogs, so I can take a peak at yours!
