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.

Happy Hot Cocoa Day



Welcome to Day 13 of my 25 days of Christmas inspiration series. Today's post isn't quite as late


Today is National Hot Cocoa day and I just got done drinking a big ole mug! The Coffee Lovers winter hop is still going on as well, so this card covers them both.

To make my card I started with a Lemon Lime Twist top folding card base and a panel cut down with a stitched die by Lil' Inker Designs. I stamped the image from the Cup of Cozy set by Concord & 9th and colored it with Copic markers. to finish the card I added the stitched steam also by Lil' Inker Designs.

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 
Christmas/Winter Holiday 
and

Candles/something depicting light



I will be back later on today for day 12

Sparkling Joy



Welcome to Day 10 of my 25 Days of Christmas Inspiration series. 

Today's post also doubles as my card for the new challenge at AAA Cards which will run the rest f the year, the next challenge will be on Jan 7th. 
The holidays always get so busy and this will give you plenty of time to link up a card before the next challenge.  


To make the super CAS card, I started with a with top folding card base, some red glimmer paper and the Joy set by Concord & 9th.  Using the Mini Misti I stamped the snowflake also in the Joy set using Delicata gold ink and the greeting in black Memento ink. I used the Joy dies to cut out the letters in red glimmer paper and popped them up with foam tape. Super simple card that makes a statement.

Sparkle


Welcome to Day 9 of the 25 days of Christmas Inspiration series.

Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers with a $15 gift certificate. Our Code word is


I am sure you can find lots of reasons to use sparkle with Christmas upon us.
To make my card I started with a top folding Crumb Cake base and yep you guessed it, that Plaid Background stamp by Concord & 9th. I am loving that stamp as you can tell. I stamped it o Real Red cardstock with Black ink. To cut the ornament I used the Ornamental dies also by Concord & 9th. I used a pine bough by Stampin up for the pine needles.
 The background was made using the Barnwood Background stamp, another one of my favorites by Concord & 9th. To finish the card I used the Merry die cut alsoby Concord & 9th out of gold glimmer paper and embossed the word Christmas (from a Neat & Tangled set) in white embossing powder to contrast.
