Christmas card for Sweepie


I made a card for my little niece Sweepie and have one for her little sister, Little Munchkin, in process.  I had a lot of fun with this card as I got out my colored pencils, Goo-Gone and blending stumps.  I'm a bit out of practice with my coloring technique.  I also finally set up my Cricut and used my new Paper Lace cartridge.  I love this cartridge as there are so many fun shapes and designs, even ones that are doily-like as the one on this card.  It is hard to tell in this photo but I used Stickles to accent the ear and hand muffs.  I ran DP through the Cuttlebug and then lightly sanded it to bring out the white core.

Stamps:  Elisabeth Bell
Paper:  WW, Pixie Pink, Green Galore, DP
Ink:  Stazon Black

O Come Let Us Adore Him


I did it!  I made a little over 100 Christmas cards and mailed them out to family and friends.  I usually don't like to make the same exact design of a card more than twice but this project was not as tedious as I thought it would be.  I did do 3 different variations of the card using different Nestabilities shapes.

Stamps:  Come to Bethlehem - SU
Paper:  WW, Not Quite Navy

Accessories:  Nestabilities, Stickles, Silver Beads

I'm finishing up my Christmas cards and I took a little break to participate in the SCS Featured Stamper Challenge 252.  This week's Featured Stamper is Studbo and her gallery is amazing!  I see myself CASing many of her cards.

This card has my typical winter theme of blue, white and silver.  Giving you a hint of the colors that I used in my Christmas card this year.  After I mail out my Christmas cards I will be posting pics.
