Christmas characters...

Somehow I ran across this new, to me, challenge and since I love making Christmas cards I HAD to try it!
The base card is white card stock with squares of black, red and kraft card stock that I die cut with dies from Tim Holtz “Stacked Tiles, Circles” set.
Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant’s reindeer set I stamped it with Memento tuxedo black ink.
On another piece of white card stock I stamped the reindeer from the same set with the same ink and colored them with Copic markers.
These I die cut with the dies from the set and foam taped to the card front.

CAS nativity...


Searching through all my stamps for what I was sure were many a nativity set but I only had one!
On a white card stock base card I stamped the sentiment from Unity Stamp Co. “Reason for the Season” with StazOn jet black ink.
On another piece of white card stock I stamped the images from the same set with the same ink, colored them with Prismacolor pencils and trimmed them out with scissors before glue dotting them to the card front.

October anniversary...


Love the fact that my son got married in my favorite season.
The base card is white card stock with a layer of the green card stock.
The main piece is white card stock with leaves from Sizzix “Cut Out Leaves” cut from the bottom.
Under the leaves, on top of the green card stock I placed a piece that I had sponged with Distress Oxide inks aged mahogany, spun sugar and spiced marmalade.
The sentiment from Sizzix “Celebration Words:Script” were die cut from more of the green card stock.
