Pinterest Card

This card was created by Emily Anderson and I found it on Pinterest. It was easier than you'd think by cutting out the oval, the scallop mat and the tree on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

I love that this set can also be cut by hand easily.

I stamped the 2 trees with Whisper. Then the center tree is cut on the Cricut and stamped with Juniper ink. Ths sparkly shapes fit perfectly over the Trim the Tree images. Then punch with a 1/2" punch the circles on either end of the oval.
Enjoy your Day!

Season's Tweetings

I love this stamp set from Season's Tweeting Gift Bag kit (Z1913).

Kit includes: 1 – My Acrylix® Season's Tweetings Stamp Set (C-size)
6 – Season's Tweetings Gift Bags (3 Topiary chevron, 3 Ruby polka-dot)
9 – Die-Cut Tags

I stamped the wreath on a circle I cut on the Cricut using Art Philosophy cartridge set at 2 3/4. Then I cut a scallop circle at 3 1/4 with the same cartridge.
I stamped the image with Black ink.
Then stamped the little bird in the center.
Stamp the bird and the hat on a piece of scratch paper. Cut them out.
Mount the cut out bird with mounting tape over the one stamp inside the wreath. This is paper piecing.
Add his hat also with mounting tape
Color everything with Close To My Hearts new Alcohol markers.
Add Glitz Glitter Red, Green and Clear
Use Liquid Applique to the brim of the hat & the ball. Heat with a heat tool to puff it up.
Stamp sentiment with Black ink

Enjoy your Day!

Merry & Bright

Taking the idea from the Frosted workshop on the go I just changed up the colors. Using the Sparkle & Shine paper, some Shimmer Trim red and Bakers Twine this card came together quickly.
I stamped the snowflake in 2nd genereation Juniper ink.
The sentiment is stamped in Ruby ink
Enjoy your Day!

Glory to God


I love Pinterest!! I find so many things on it that I want to make, eat, decorate or re-create. Like this card. Designed by Mary Gunn, I loved her idea. I just tweaked the colors. This is another card made at my Christmas card workshop.

A white card base is covered with Gypsy cardstock
Slate Polka-dot Washi tape is at the bottom
White cardstock is layered onto Black cardstock
Stamped in black ink are the 3 wisemen and the sentiment
Taking a piece of cardstock and a sponge cover the image/sentiment. Starting on the layering cs sponge the ink outwards to create the "night time sky". Reverse to do the other side
Using a Gelly roll pen dot the evening sky to create the image of stars.
Enjoy your Day!

Mary and Babe

 I love the simplicity of this card. I used Cranberry cardstock to cover the Daisy White base. I layered with New England Ivy .
Using Black ink to stamp the Madonna. Desert Sand ink is used to sponged the edges.

Enjoy the Day!
