Home for the holidays!


  Merry Christmas! Hope you are having a wonderful time with family and friends and making great memories!

  This is Mike's card. Love Tim's hangers! Mike likes them too! Fabulous die set from Sizzix/TH, called "Home for the Holidays". When I first saw it, I knew this would be Mike's Christmas card. 

  There are 12 dies! Lots of layering. Great fun! Paper used for the car, trees, present and sentiment are from Tim Holtz Kraft-Core, Shattered Collection. The background papers and Christmas quotes are from the TH Christmas 8x8 pad set.

  Used some Recollections Snow Paste on the trees and hills. Underneath the card is some drywall tape and cheesecloth. I ran the "sky" paper thru with the Swiss Dots EF.  

Close-up:


  Back. The base of the card is a jumbo playing card. The sentiment is on a regular size playing card. Sentiment is a wood mounted stamp from Stampabilities, and my lips stamp is a wood mounted stamp from Rubber Stamped.

Secret Santa


  Another card I made using the Prima Sweet Peppermint collection. 

  The candy cane candies are stickers from Michael's that I got last year. Sadly, they don't have them this year. I'm not a sticker kinda gal, but I do like these. The one on the bottom right has cellophane wrapped around it, just like a candy!

  This was for our Secret Santa at work today. I pulled Jen's name and along with this card I got her a mug with a tea infuser.

  I sure got my money's worth from this collection! I think I made 10 or 12 cards, using the paper and images from this set. Love it! 


  The inside. Sentiment is from the Cornish Heritage Farms - Mona Lisa Moments, Christmas Expressions set.


The back.

  Crazy weather we are having! Flurries, rain, freezing cold, mild. Who knows what to wear anymore!?

  Have a great one! Hump day tomorrow!

Christmas Ornaments

  Haven't used this technique in forever! Glitter Ritz and Peel-Off stickers. 

  Using Christmas paper I have hoarded over the years. Not sure where this came from, but it matched perfectly with the Glitter Ritz colours. 

  Added a blue acrylic snowflake and over top of that I stuck a silver snowflake. Sentiment, front and inside is from a Hero Arts set.

  Made this card for my hair stylist. Angie has been making me look good for 27 years! 

The inside.

The back.

  Will be posting more Christmas cards as the week goes on and the recipients have received them.

  Merry Christmas Angie and Jon!

The Fresh Snow Glistens

   An all white card. Not very often I make a card on a white base. Love this little one all bundled up! Bought this stamp at a yard sale after Christmas last year. Coloured her with pencils and Gamsol.

  The tree is TH stencil. Used some snow paste on the  top layer. Snow on bottom is glitter paper, and the sentiment is part of a set called "Words to the Rescue: Christmas 2" by Steve Fadie, Art Gone Wild. 

  Snowflakes are fabric and I have had them for a long time. Some doodling along the edges.


  The inside. This card was made for friends of ours. They celebrate both holidays. Sentiment stamps are from various sets.

Thanks for stopping by!

Almost there! Have a terrific week!
