2017-12-13; Merry & Bright Snow Globe. 12 Cards of Christmas; card #10


This is card #10 in the 2017 Christmas card series. I wish I could remember which cartridge the snow globe was cut from. If/when I remember I will add that information.

I didn’t bother trying to die cut a Top hat, instead I just cut a square and then a small rectangle. Once they were glued together I ran the little hat through my Fiskars crimping tool. The tiny holly is a stamp from CowTown Stamps.

The snowman was cut from the cartridge Doodlecharms. Here is a close up of his little snowman face.

2017-12-11; Merry & Bright Pine Trees. 12 Cards of Christmas #8


Here we are at the 8th Card of Christmas.

This particular card was cased when I saw one of the samples listed at CardzTV.  I believe the trees were cut from the Cricut cartridge Doodlecharms.  The plaid banner from  Creative Cards.  The craft colored mat was die cut with a no brand stitched rectangle and then stamped with an unmounted rubber stamp by Beeswax (an image that is one of the inheritance pieces from Sonia).

The sentiment is from  Stampin’ Up set All Year Cheer I.  I only have this one from the set as I bought it at a rummage sale.  The punched snowflakes are holographic card stock.

Everyone likes a reindeer, right? So from the Cricut Cartridge Creative Critters here’s Mom, Pop and the kid.

This is actually a border and gives you all three of the deer. This close up shows some shading and crystal effects that were added.

2017-12-09; Good Tidings 2017, 12 cards of Christmas, #6


A few weeks ago I saw a sample much like this one in it’s basic design. I switched out everything to put to use what I had on hand, but the basic sketch is the same.

2017-10-31 (20)

The sentiment is by Hero Arts, cut out with Spellbinder die and then sponged.

The bow is made out of crochet thread and topped with a “Candi Dot” This is basically a preformed sticker but it doesn’t have adhesive.

This is the 5th card of the 12 cards of Christmas for 2017.

I used the Create a Critter 2, Cricut cartridge and Elegant Edges for the mats. the sentiment is on a small cube with 3 other Winter/Seasonal sentiments. Let me know (in the comment section) if you need to know who makes the cube stamp and I’ll try to remember to add this information for you.

2017-12-05; Scrapling gift card


This gift card measures 4×4″. All I need to do is punch a hole in the upper left corner and add some string to tie it on a gift.  It  opens and the To and From are stamped on the inside.


The gift box/present is from the Let’s Party Acrylic set by CardzTV.  The star is die cut (Spellbinders) from holographic card stock.
