Christmas #3

And another Christmas card for today. The punched border on the bottom has been in my card parts for years, and was in my crate of Christmas stamps and papers so I used it! I added the green paper underneath it and also the red Nuvo drops. The sentiment is from Gina K and is silver embossed. The papers are from The Paper Studio and I also added a thin silver strip of glitter paper.

Christmas #2

Two more simple Christmas cards. They both use unbranded stamps which are in my giveaway pile now! I don't really like the stamps that came with the set. It came with dies and the tree die doesn't even match the size of the stamp! I cut it out by hand. I embossed the background on the first one with a Sizzix folder. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession, I think. The image is gold embossed and I used gold glitter cardstock.
I embossed the trees with green embossing powder and added Nuvo drops. The sentiment is from Gina K. I used foil on the pre-printed strip.

Christmas Cards - #1

I've had a LITTLE time to spend in my stamping room lately, and I've made a few Christmas cards. Mostly, my Christmas cards just "happen" throughout the year, but this could be the first time that I've actually gotten out my Christmas stamps and papers and sat down to make the cards. I gave away a lot to a thrift store, so I have more to make. They are all quite simple, though. One of these days MAYBE I'll make something a little more different, or fancy, or complicated or ... For now, these will do. The image stamps on each are from Recollections and the sentiment on this first one is from Papertrey Ink. The paper is from The Paper Studio. I used gold embossing powder and also some thin glittery gold cardstock.

The Last of the Square Papers!

Here is the last of the small, square papers I got from my friend, Vicki, many years ago. All cards are basically the same with the same sentiment, but slightly different colors or layouts. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. On two of them, I ink-blended over the design - this one and one other.

Red and Gold Anniversary

A few years ago, a friend gave me a couple packages of small papers. They are 4 x 4 inches. They are all such pretty patterns. I think I have used up most of them, but I really want to get them all used up. These red patterned pieces are three that I had left. I matted them with red and added gold-embossed sentiments. The card bases are ivory. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
