Last Christmas Card

This has got to be my favorite Christmas card this year. Truth be told, it almost didn't get made. I thought I had made enough, got them all stamped and mailed and then got a card and realized I hadn't sent one in return.
I colored the image with copics and added some highlights with spica glitter pens and a white gel pen.
I layered the image on a snowflake embossed piece of cardstock and then added a layer of pink to tie it all together.
Thanks for looking!

Gift card holders

I needed some gift card holders for my nieces and nephew. I came across this beautiful blog. She has some of the cutest ideas! Using her template I was able to whip up five of these in about half an hour, with supplies I had on hand.
This one is for my niece who will be celebrating her seventh birthday on Christmas day.
Thanks for looking!

Frosty Friend

This frozen fellow is from Sassy Cheryl's. I love his hat
and coat. I colored him with copics and then cut the image out with Nestabilities. I added a base of patterned paper and red and pink cardstock. The pink snowflake is cut from a Nestabilities die and layered with a couple of buttons. I added some sparkle to his buttons and the snow with Spica glitter pens and Stickles.
This has to be one of my favorite Christmas cards of the year. Hope you enjoy it as well. Thanks for looking!

Another PTI Christmas Card

This is another super simple Christmas card I made using PTI stamps. The patterned paper is another sheet from the Memory Box Mistletoe collection. I added red rhinestones to the mistletoe and layered a strip of velvet red ribbon under the image to add some Pop! Thanks for looking!

Another simple Christmas card

One last simple Christmas card. I promise a couple of different stamped images soon. I just love being able to sit down and get five or six cards done. Sometimes it can take me a couple of hours (or more) to get one card, but this time of year I just don't have that kind of time. Wish I could say I was this super organized Martha Stewart type but in reality I am more of a last minute Lucy.
Anyways, the stamp is another PTI stamp and the paper is yet another gorgeous paper from Memory Box. Hope your holiday plans are coming together and that you are enjoying the holiday spirit. Thanks for looking!

Christmas cards

This is one of the simpler Christmas cards that I made this year. I used a stamp from Paper Trey Ink. I stamped the image and then cut it out with a Nestabilitie die, layered in onto a scalloped circle and then used foam dots to mount it. The paper is a gorgeous pad from Memory Box called Mistletoe. Not a single sheet in the entire pad that isn't beautiful. I think the ribbon is a great finishing touch!
Thanks for stopping by!

Advent Boxes

Seems like every year my daughter has some type of Advent calendar. The past couple of years she has enjoyed pulling a drawer from a tree shaped calendar from Starbucks. This year I decided I would make Advent boxes for her. I used a box template from Angie at Chic' n Scratch. I made up twenty four of the boxes, all red and then punched holes on each side to attach a wire handle.
I used my Cricut to cut all the numbers and then set about decorating them. Each one is a little different and the best part is not only are the boxes a great way to count down to Christmas but they also make really cute decorations.
