Merry Christmas!

This was a very quick card, as I was running out of time to finish when I made it. I stamped a snowflake from Patterned Pines, then swiped shimmer paint over it to make it kinda sparkly. The Merry Christmas is from the Four Christmas mini set. The ribbon is a retired Original twill.

Finishing Christmas Cards

I was frantically trying to finish the last of my Christmas Cards today so that I could give them to co-workers tomorrow. However, we now have a SNOW DAY tomorrow!! So now I have more time to finish. I only have to make two more. For the first card, I used Patterned Pines and Teeny Tiny Wishes. For the second card, I used Trees Three. The snowflakes were stamped with the Shimmer Paint to look sparkly. I copied the design of this card from a birthday card that my mom made for me this summer.

Preview-Clear Mount Set

I used the new Vintage Vogue (in clear mount) on this card. The sketch was SC255. I used the big and little flower stamps from this set in versamark to make a design on the Rich Razzleberry background. The DP is Autumn Meadows from the Holiday mini. I stamped the main image in Tempting Turqoise, then took the flower swirl stamp in Soft Suede (stamped off twice) and stamped it all over the main panel. I used one of the current Ribbon Originals layered on TT for the horizontal piece. That ribbon matched well with the stamp set.

Buddy the Elf, What's your Favorite Color?

The first card is based on SC246. I used a retired set called Merry Elves, which I think is so cute. The second card is for WSC97. The set I used is called Snow Globe. All of my cards seem to be the same color scheme because I am trying to use up last year's DSP.

Trying to finish Christmas Cards

I am using some old sketch challenges that I hadn't gotten around to yet to try and finish up my Christmas Cards. The first card is for SC247. I used Peaceful Wishes and some retired DSP. The second card is for SC244. The set is Cold and Cuddly from the mini. I used a Window sheet as the background. I hadn't used them yet, but I liked them.
