Christmas Cards Day 7

Hello my stylish crafty friends! Today I have two cards for you that feature the Making Memories Twinkle collection. The first card is a remake of a card I did last year, with a couple of changes. The stamp is by Inkadinkado and I used the Cuttlebug "Holly Ribbons" embossing folder and Fiskars Upper Crest border punch. I also used Distress Inks, Perfect Pearls Mists, hemp cord, and adhesive backed rhinestones.

The second card I used the Fiskars Scalloped border punch, the Cuttlebug Christmas Lace Tree embossing folder and the Tim Holtz ticket stamp. I also used Distress Inks, hemp cord and some adhesive backed pearls.

I hope you enjoyed the cards and will come back to see more. Have a wonderful evening!

Christmas Cards Day 6

Hello my stylish and crafty friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year and is now getting ready for the fast approaching Christmas holiday. I must admit I have a little bit of a holiday hangover. After stuffing ourselves, my sister and nieces and I braved the Target sale which opened at midnight. We arrived at 10 o'clock and the line was already half way around the building! By the time we got to go in we could still see the end of the line that had completely wrapped around the building and then some. It was quite the sight for our small town. I must say I will probably never do it again though. We also did (or tried to do) some other shopping Friday. So needless to say between the food and the family and the shopping I was ready to crash.

Today is a quick share of some non-traditional Christmas cards made with the My Mind's Eye Merry & Bright collection. I hope you enjoy them and keep coming back for more holiday inspiration.

Christmas Cards Day 5

Welcome back my stylish crafty friends. Today I have a very simple, but pretty card to share featuring the Basic Grey Jovial collection. I used an EK Success punch and threaded it with ribbon. I also have some tags and card candy I made for a swap to share.

The tags were made with Rangers manilla tags and Tim Holtz seasonal paper. I used the Tim Holtz tissue tape t create the ruffle and added the rhinstones with the iRock. The swirly snowflake stamp is from Penny Black. I masked the Santa face ff and sprayed the rest of the tag with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in marshmallow and used Distress Inks to color the back of the tag.

T For the card candy I made 2 ribbon flowers using the Cosmo Cricket Glubers, a mini rosette using the Tim Holtz die and a Bazzill button that I tied with hemp cord. For the topper I used the Tim Holtz Mini Styled Labels die.

Thanks again for stopping by today and hope you continue to visit for more holiday inspiration. Tomorrow I will be taking a day off to celebrate the holiday, but I'll be back Friday with more cards. Have a wonderful evening and very happy Thanksgiving!

Christmas Cards Day 4

Welcome my stylish crafty friends. Today is flashback day, we are going to take a look back at some past Christmas cards I've created. We'll start with my favorites. I made this set last year. I love snowmen! This set features stamps by The Greeting Farm and Penny Black and paper by 3 Bugs In A Rug (Snow Much Fun collection). The first card also features We R Memory Keepers stamps, Deckled Rectangles Nestabilities and an EK Success border punch.

The third card is the Penny Black snowman and the edge of the card was cut with the Tim Holtz On the Edge dies by Sizzix.

The next card I'm featuring is a Cricut card that I created with the A Child's Year cartridge. The card was cut at 5.5 inches and the silhouette was cut 3.25 inches. I used Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls Mist t give it more of a vintage feel.
The next 2 cards were made with the My Minds Eye Merry and Bright Collection. 

The last 2 cards feature papers by My Minds Eye and Basic Grey, as well as Stamps by Inkadinkado. I also used hemp cord, Fiskar's Upper Crest border punch, Distress Inks, Perfect Pearls Mist and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Christmas Cards Day 2

Hello my stylish friends! Today I'm featuring 3 Cricut cards. All the cards were created with the Florals Embellished and Elegant Edges cartridges. The first card features My Minds Eye paper, a Tim Holtz stamp (Christmas ticket) and an Inadinkado stamp (Naughty or Nice ticket). The snowflake was cut at 4 inches (Elegant Edges) and the flowers were cut at 2 inches and 3 inches (Florals Embellished)

The second card also features My Minds Eye paper and the card is embossed with a Sizzix/Basic Grey embossing folder from the Eskimo Kisses line. The bracket border was cut by the length (not height) at 5.5 inches (Elegant Edges) and the flowers was cut at 2.5 inches (Florals Embellished). I also used Stickles and Distress Inks to make the card pop.

The third card features Fancy Pants paper and the stamp I'm not sure who it's by. I cut the scalloped pieces using the book pages function on Elegant Edges at 4 inches. I embossed the red piece with another Sizzix/Basic Grey embossing folder. The stick pin is by Tim Holtz.

Christmas Cards Day 1

Hello my stylish friends! Today's cards feature papers by My Minds Eye. Both cards are based on the same design with a few minor changes. The first card I used an EK Success border punch and layered the two pieces so they were slightly off set.

The second card also used the same technique but with a different style of
 punch. I also added eyelets to the scallops and used a lace rather than a ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today!
