Elf on a Shelf

I tested this sentiment stamp on red for the cards on my blog yesterday. But, of course, I couldn't just toss this test! So, here it is on a card. No wonder I end up with so many "card parts!" The little elf was stamped and die-cut with a Recollections set. I colored with Copic markers and added a bit of sparkle with a Wink of Stella brush. The cardbase is ivory.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Christmas Card Set



I made this set of Christmas cards for our church to sell at the craft sale at our annual Lutefisk Dinner. I will be making more, as well as going through my surplus of cards. The image stamps are all from Stampin' Up! The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink.

Christmas Snowman and Birdies


I do not know what company made these stamps, as I stamped them at our Group Gathering in June. If anyone is really interested, I could find out. I think the snowman and the trees are the same stamp. I added the sentiment from the same set. I simply colored with Copics, matted, and added a bit of sparkle with a Wink of Stella marker.

Each of the birds, the birdhouse, and the sentiment are separate stamps from the same set. Again, I colored with Copics, matted and added bit of sparkle. I made two of this card. Three more Christmas cards done:)

Small Thank You



I've had this small card base, folded and complete with patterned paper, in my card parts for several years. Here it is, finished. I added the stamping on the die-cut panel. The flowers and leaves are from a set from American Crafts/Crate Paper and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

A Couple of Re-Makes

In my "card parts" box, I have some pieces of cards of mine that I have dismantled. Here are two of them, remade. For this first one, I trimmed down the bottom of this piece and removed a flower I had added to it. I used a piece of matching cardstock and embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The flowers stamp is from Stampin' Up! I think the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

This "card part" was the main panel, minus the "thanks." I placed the panel onto a card front and added the sentiment, mounted on foam squares. The heart stamps are by Stampin' Up! and the "thanks" sentiment is from Verve.
