Christmas Ornaments




Hello and welcome to day 16 of my 25 days of Christmas Inspiration series.
I am also up on the Technique Junkies blog with this card.
Can you believe it's only 9 days until Christmas? Where did this month go, If you are like me then you are still making cards and your friends and family will receive them after Christmas.



To make my card I started with a top folding white card base and a panel of watercolor paper cut down with a stitched die. When I use watercolor paper I always use my Misti so I can get a crisp image but today I
 used it to help me stamp the cord and top to the ornament. Using the Christmas Ornaments set and the Mini Misti I used Tombow markers to color right on the stamp itself and then spritzed it with a fine mist of water and shut the lid to get the watercolored ornaments. Next I inked the stamps up with Versamark ink and closed the lid to stamp the cord and top of the ornament and then embossed them with Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder. To fins the card I used a greeting from the Gifts of Christmas set and also embossed it with Gilded embossing powder.



You can purchase these stamps I used and lots more at Technique Junkies and I have a code for you to save 10%

International Tea Day


I have one last card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop and it is also for International Tea day which is today, who knew? 
I do not drink Coffee but I do drink my fair share of tea so I had to make a card for today.
To make my card I started with a top folding white card base, a white piece of cardstock cut down with a diagonal die from MFT and a piece of patterned paper from Bo Bunny. 
I stamped the image from the stamp set Like a Teacup from Technique Junkies Stamps in Memento ink and colored it using Copic Markers and attached it to my card front.  Super quick and easy card.


Cozy Holiday



Welcome to day 15 of my 25 days of Christmas inspiration. 


Today is the last day of the winter coffee lovers blog hop so I wanted to make one more card for it. 


Today's card uses a Hero Arts Christmas set, Coffee Cup Tags.  To make my card I started with a white top folding card base and some patterned paper by Echo Park. I used a stitched die for the stitching around the card front. I stamped the coffee cup on a scrap piece of cardstock using Catherine Pooler inks and then fussy cut it out. I stamped the sleeve and the holly and also fussy cut them out as well. To finish the card I colored some clear rhinestones for the holly berries and then popped the image up in the center of the card using foam tape.

Joy to the World


Welcome to day 14 of my 25 days of Christmas inspiration series 


And I am caught up to schedule posts again, today's card is back to using winter/snow because it is super cold right now. We got over a foot of snow this past weekend and it's still hanging around because it so cold. This morning it was a whopping 13 degrees. 
To make my card I started with a white top folding card base and a panel cut down with a MFT stitched die.  I stamped the Joy from Joy set by CAS-ual Fridays in versa mark ink and embossed it in white. Next I used Catherine Pooler ink and sponged it across the panel, after getting the look I wanted I spritzed water to give it the "snowfall" look. To finish the card I added the "to the world" underneath the joy by using the Snowy Sayings set also by CAS-ual Fridays. I masked off the joy so I could fit the "to the world" underneath the large joy.

Ho Ho Ho



Welcome to another late night post for day 12 of the 25 days of Christmas inspiration series. Can you believe it is only 13 days until Christmas?!?
Life kinda got in the way of my crafting a little bit so hopefully tomorrow I will get a pst up earlier and get back on track. 



Todays card is another super simple one. 
I started with a top folding Crumb Cake card base and stamped the Barnwood background y Concord & 9th also in Crumb Cake on the front. I used the Plaid Background stamp by Concord & 9th to make the tree, I stamped it in black on some Real Red cardstock. To finish the card I added the greeting from the Trim Th Tree set also by Concord & 9th stamped in Versamark ink and embossed in white.

Happy Pawlidays


Hello and welcome to a very late post for day 11 the 25 days of Christmas inspiration. 

Today's card uses a cute set that has been out of stock everywhere and it finally it was back in stock when MFT was having their sale. 
To make my card I started with a white top folding card base, a piece of patterned paper cut to the size of the base and the Pawlidays set by My Favorite Things. I stamped the image with Memento and then colored it with Copic markers. I added some 3mm googly eyes to the puppy and some glossy accents to the bulbs. To finish the card I added the greeting snd some tiny colored rhinestones. 


I am entering this one in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge of
