These are so much fun and EASY to make - I got the pattern from Dawns SU site, (my computer is not playing nice lately so I can't pull up the exact date). These are just that little "extra" to add to a gift or when you just want to say "thank you" to someone. You see it holds this:
which a lot of people carry in their purse or keep on their desk at work or home. I went to Bath and Body Works and picked up several while they were "on sale" in various Christmas/winter scents. I made 8 of these this afternoon - going to a luncheon tomorrow and want to give a couple of these with my gift. These can be adapted to any season - I made them for fall too, now the next ones ewill be spring theme.
One of my "besties" brought lunch and her NEW die from Memory Box called Horse Country - well I had to make a special card for our sweet little foster pup we had this summer, Elle, that was adopted by a very special lady in WI. This lady is an equine vet and loves dogs so I had to include a dog in the card too. I cut out two of the die one from white and one from Kraft then cut the kraft horse apart so I could put it on the bottom hill. My husband said "where is the doggie" and I just happen to have a set of 5 doggies from Impression Obsession and this little cutie fit perfectly. Some blue glitter cs for the bg and some glitter snow on the trees and hillsides. Merry Christmas sweet Elle, we love and miss you but know you are blessed with a wonderful Mom and dog sister too.
This was one of the easiest Christmas cards I made this year - and yes it is "cased" but can't remember where!!! I used SU tree set - the Merry Christmas was in my Christmas sentiments, I think I need more vertical greetings. Love the "new" embossing folder of snow from Taylored Expressions - on white it truly looks like snow falling. I was able to make 15 of these cards in under 2 hours. Now off to address the envelopes - which will take longer than it did to make the card.
A few weeks ago, seven of us decided we would do a Christmas/Winter card swap.
It was so much fun to see the different cards come in, that we decided to take it one step
further, and do a blog hop with our swap cards!
This is just for fun...no prizes, but we hope that you are inspired by something
that you see today!
My swap card is at the top of my post. I love snowmen and this cutie from AMuse is no exception - and...it comes with a die so no fussy cutting for this girl. Colored with copics, Trees and scene are from SU and the trees come to life with platinum stickles. CS from AMuse - I used the blueberry polka dot which I thought went really well with this cutie.
you can hop along with us, and see what the other folks created!
I have several winter" birthdays so decided to use this pretty Amaryllis flower and set of pots from
Great Impressions. DP from Colorbok, colored with Copic markers. and sentiment is one I keep handy in my sentiment drawer for those "small" places. Challenges: Sketch Saturday - follow sketch Scrappy Hands - birthday
Just a quick card that I am sending to a little chemo buddy that has lost yet "another" tooth - this little tooth fairy has been busy the past week!! I'm not sure what the going rate for teeth are now - but with inflation I think maybe a $2.00 bill will cover it. The DP is from SU punch Recollections, stamp from Sweet November Stamps - A little bit of Magic - all of the images are cute little fairies. A little bit of fairy dust glitter dust on her wings will help her fly!! Challenges: Sketch Saturday - Sketch #328 Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
Every month I do a 1-1 swap with Technique Junkies where you have to use a technique from Technique Junkies - well I have been a subscriber for many years so it is not hard for me to find a technique that I haven't tried - or one that I have tried and really enjoyed. This month my swap partner was a former angel - Carol Norby so I made this card for her - a zig zag accordian card with an easel on the back for sitting it up for display. My stamps are from AMuse Studio and SU - paper from my stash and then I got out my different sizes of snowflake punches and used some blue glitter paper for my snowflakes. Hope you enjoy Carol. Challenges: Divas by Design - snowy Moo-Mania - Trees Simply create Too - snow or all white - I used snowflakes/snow.
I am a hopelessly addicted stamper. I retired from nursing in July 2013, a career that I loved. I am married to a guy that loves to fish as much as I love to craft (more stamping time for me) and we share our home with 2 big beautiful dogs - Bella and CoCo and 2 cats - Nikki and Calli.
