Merry Christmas

I hope you have enjoyed checking out all the cards I have created for Christmas. But I will let you know that these cards you have seen are next year's ideas. I know sick right. I am a planner by nature and when you work retail, you have to be. So this year's card is ready to go in the mailbox any time. Check back to see it soon. 

This card is featuring the snowflakes and saying from the Season of Joy stamp set.

Detail shot
Have a very Merry Christmas and a safe holiday!

Happy Holidays

Country Christmases are celebrated all throughout the United States. Expressing it in a card, can be a little be more difficult. 

I choose to take a stab at it by using Gingham Christmas Greetings as my stamp set and green, red, and cream papers. The paper the stamped images are mounted to features a green gingham background to add to the depth of the stamps.

Adding a softness with chalk ink to add to the depth of this card.

You can see in this close up shot that the paper is all layered upon each other.
One more card coming at you tomorrow!

Merry and Holly

Traditionally,we see red and green representing Christmas cards. This card is no exception, except it brings in the element of black and a whole lot of white. 

This card features the stamp set, Season of Joy.

In the up close shot, you can see that a whole lot of hand cutting went on. The saying is stamped inside another stamp and then the holly is stamped and then cut out as well. Spring loaded scissors were my friend when I was creating this card.
See you tomorrow with another creation.

Merry Kissmas

Time for more holiday cheer! Soft greens, evergreens, and splashes of red keep this card elegant. 

This card was created using Kissmas & Mistletoe as well. 

To add softness to the cream cardstock, the edges were inked with chalk ink. The Christmas tree's poinsettia was colored in using Copic markers.

Same with the Merry Kissmas saying, the heart was colored with a Copic marker.
Hope you are enjoying peeking at some of my creations as much as I had making them.

See you again!
