Hi Everyone,

I love the traditional red and green color combo for cards this time of year, don't you?  I always think those two colors together scream Christmas time is here :)

So, with that in mind I stamped and colored up a little winter scene using some of the winter village stamps.  I die cut and matted it, adding some glitter glue and the greeting right in the scene too.

The background paper was made using two different background stamps and red and green ink.  The line of background stamps here at DRS Designs make it so easy to make custom paper in a jiffy!  

To finish off the card, I added the word Noel to a strip of paper with a punched border.

Here is a list of stamps used for this make:

Stop by DRS Designs soon...There's a special on their stained glass stamps!
Happy Stamping!


Thnking of You

>> Monday, December 11, 2017

My card today features part of the new Heartache at Christmas greeting. I paired it with the poinsettia image which was stamped onto white CS, colored with Copics and die cut with a MFT square die. I stamped the Poinsettia image once more and colored only parts of it, fussy cut and popped it up on the original image. The large pink panel was embossed with a Darice folder and layered onto green CS. The greeting was stamped with Archival Jet black ink onto the same green CS, die cut and added under the poinsettia. Some pink gem stones were added to the banner. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the poinsettia petals and some clear Nuvo drops were added to the flower center.

Thanks for stopping by today,

I created this card for last week's Winter Wonderland Challenge at Love to Scrap. DRS Designs sponsored this challenge and since it was a Winter Wonderland theme I had to play along and created a snowman scene. Here's my card.

First I stamped the snowflake background image with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white EP and then sponged on distress oxide inks for the sky. I used a Fawn Lawn die to create my snow bank and stamped my greeting with Archival Jet Black ink. The snowman was die cut using a SB die of the month set. Isn't he the cutest?! I think I'll make a few more of these. I really like the way this turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Good morning!

Today I have two Nativity cards for you today.  This first card uses DRS stamp: 
Adore Him 246F and a die from Cottage Cutz.  
the base for this easel card is a Curved Square die from Spellbinders and the silver filigree die is also from Spellbinders.
The point is stopped at the metallic silver bow to keep the card open.

I have also used dies from Spellbinders and poinsettia and star die from Memory box.
Another version using Nativity Ornament 526K

Hope you enjoy these cards!
Thanks for visiting today!


Holiday Buddies

>> Friday, December 8, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Isn't this Wintertime Buddies stamp just super cheerful?  It's always been one of my favorites for making a friendly looking Christmas card :)

I colored it up and fussy cut it out, adding some glitter glue to the fur on Santa's clothes.  As I was waiting for that to dry, I die cut and dry embossed the large circle that was to hold the Santa and Snowman image. 

The background was stamped using the Snow Background stamp and I added a green panel that was dry embossed with holly.

The sentiment is the last line from the Heartache at Christmas stamp and the poinsettia embellishment was fussy cut from the recently released Poinsettia Vine Corner stamp.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....Hope your holiday prep is going strong and thank you for taking time to peek in on us today :)

Have a great one!


Santa Puppy

>> Thursday, December 7, 2017


At this busy, crazy time of year I've been challenging myself to do some 10 minute cards and while I haven't made it yet, I'm getting close :)

My card today only took about 15-20 minutes, partially due to finding the background card in my stash.  I stamped our new Santa Puppy and Doggone Wonderful Greeting on white card stock, colored and die cut them.  I added a couple of die cut circles behind them and attached them to my folded red card that I had previously stamped with our Easy Dot Background and embossed with green ep.  I added some sparkily white glitter to Santa's hat and 3 red sparkle teardrops under the greeting.


Frosty Hurricane

>> Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Today's card was an adventure.  I wanted to give the Holly Hurricane Lamp a frosty look without using glitter.  I put on a few coats of gel medium and heated them up in between.  The image is bumpy and bubbly and full of fun texture.  The bottom part of the foliage just didn't seem to work once the glass had so much texture so I stamped the Giant Poinsettia,  sponged it green, added some glue, and then sprinkled with glitter.  Then I put it all together with the bow from Holly Hurricane which has a smooth coat of gel medium to really brighten the color.  The background was made by spraying some Dylusions Ink Spray and then splashing it with water to tone it down.

Hope you are almost done with your Christmas cards - I still have a bunch to go just like every year!  LOL.
