Winter Card

It's Black Friday.  Are you shopping?  I will be shopping online this year.  I really hate crowds and the hoards of people out on black Friday are really just too much.  Sitting at my computer while wearing my pj's and drinking hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps sounds much more appealing to me.
I'm still making shaped cards.  Earlier this year when I was having neck and shoulder pain it was too difficult for me to do much crafting.  I was able to do some coloring though.  So I inked up lots of my stamps and printed out lots of digi images and sat in front of the tv and colored.  I now have this huge stack of colored images so I trying to get them onto cards.  This is such a backwards process for me since I usually choose my stamp, then pick my papers and card design before I color the images.  When I colored these images up earlier I was just hoping I would find papers in my stash that would coordinate.  So far, I have had pretty good luck.

Fa La La La La

For this card I merged three images from Mo's Digital Pencil.  These little elves just looked like they would be part of a choir to me.
I have kept the card design simple so that it can be mailed.  However, I did add a little white flower soft to the hat trim and a few gems to the holly.

Merriest of Merry Christmas

I'm having fun making shaped cards with my spellbinders dies.  They are super easy to make and is a nice change from my usual square cards.
This little Tilda stamp is going to appear on several cards this year. I have colored her up several times.  I found this great paper stack at Michael's from the Recollections line called Christmas Noel. The papers are a little more modern in colors so I can see another trip to Michael's in my future.
The sentiment stamp is also from Magnolia Stamps. I made a little smudge so I covered it up with an ornament I cut out of one of the pattern papers.  Nobody will ever know...

Thank You For Blessing My Life

Inside of card

I've had this little cute from Sassy Cheryl's colored up for quite awhile. I finally took time today to get a card made.  This is some of my favorite paper. The stripes and the circles are glittery.

Santa's Little Helper

I am feeling a little behind with my Christmas cards even though I have been making them all year.  Thus I used the same image and sketch to create these tow cards.  The only difference is one elf is in red and the other is in green.
This image is Toy Shop Helper from Mo's Digital Pencil.

Birthday Easel Card

This card is for my sister-in-law's birthday.  I made the easel card using spellbinders dies. There are lots of layers but I love the way it turned out.  I had these papers in my stash for awhile and decided they would look great paired with this Tilda in Hat from Magnolia Stamps. It's one of the first Magnolia stamps I purchased several years ago.  The button is an old one I found in my button jar.  Everyone has a button jar, right?  I add to it when I find buttons at estate sales.  I added a bit of cheesecloth behind a few layers. I think it matches up with the veil on her hat nicely.  I inked all the edges of the paper with walnut distress ink and then added some shabby pink embossing enamel.

Stamp: Tilda with hat from Magnolia Stamps

Santa Family Selfie

When I saw this image at The Paper Shelter, I thought it was so appropriate for a Christmas card. I'm sure our family will be taking a lots of pictures and even a few selfies this year.
I thought since the image was so much fun, that I should keep the rest of the card design simple.  I found this great sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Deck The Halls

Are you getting ready to Deck The Halls at your house?  I have several friends who have already decorated for Christmas.  I am waiting for my long weekend over Thanksgiving to give the house a deep cleaning and then put up my Christmas decor.  My husband about fainted when I told him I did not plan to put up any of our Christmas trees this year.  I tend to go overboard with the decor so needless to say, he was a bit surprised. Of course, it's only mid November so I  have plenty of time to change my mind.  hahaha
Anyway, my card for the midweek reminder of Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas extra challenge uses this adorable Tilda image from the fall Magnola Stamp club. I just love that little heart on her bottom. 
After stamping and coloring her, I fussy cut her and added to my card. The background paper looks like old barn wood. I cut the red door using my cricut. The two trees are spellbinders die.

I hope you join us in this challenge.  Only a few weeks left to get cards done for mailing.  I have most of my cards that go in the mail done. Now I get to have a little more fun with 3D embellishments for the remainder of my Christmas cards that do not need to be mailed.

Stamp: Magnolia Stamps

Christmas Card

I just love this stamp. It is from the fall Magnolia Stamp Club. I am having so much fun coloring her that you will probably see several cards in the next few weeks featuring this Tilda. Not sure it shows in the picture but the papers are glittery.  I also added some shabby white embossing enamel that has a bit of gold glitter.

Happy Winter

It's the first of the month so that means a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra.
It's November! 
 I have got to get busy counting and figuring out if I have enough Christmas cards. I already know I don't. I do however have enough cards made that need to go in the mail. The rest of my cards will be hand delivered so that means more embellishments...the bulkier the better.

This card was super quick but looks great. The paper already had the design. I just added the Xmas Brat sitter with presents from Bugaboo. I did add the corner snowflakes and the sentiment in the bottom right.
I hope you join us for this challenge.
