The end of the year is upon us and I just want to share some of the Christmas Cards we did at class this year. I hope you enjoy them! I really love designing cards for my fabulous group of ladies who love to stamp and I appreciate all of you who follow my blog and gather together to stamp. Best wishes for the New Year!!
Today I am going to share an amazing card that I received from Jackie Wilcox, a demonstrator in my downline. Every year Jackie creates the most incredible cards and the one she did this year was unbelievable! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!
Today I will share the other collage that I designed this year. This is a collage that I came up with based on the cathedral square used in quilting. It is a really fun collage to make but it can be challenging to find a paper to use that has small enough designs with just the right colors. Luckily the Stampin'Up! Presents and Pinecones was perfect. I will share that I used a 2 inch circle punch and a 1 3/8 square to make this. I am planning on doing a tutorial about collage making after the first of the year and I will share more details at that time!
Tonight I am here to share the collage I designed this year. This is one of my all time favorites! I love the new Emerald Envy ink and cardstock, it looks so pretty with Real Red and Mint Macaron! I hope you enjoy this one!
Here is another one of my favorite Holiday cards this year. This card uses the Wonder of Christmas Stamp set and the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. This card is really simple, but the image is so perfect, that is all it needs. I did all of the coloring on the wings and shoes with just the gold Wink of Stella. Gosh I love that stuff!!
I naturally tend to make fun and cutsie cards and projects, so sometimes it is good to stretch my mind and come up with something a little more elegant and I think this card fits that category perfectly. This card is made with the Reason for the Season stamp set, which is in the big catalog. This stamp set is incredibly easy to work with and you can achieve the three colors on the flower with no difficulty at all. I used the new Holly Embossing folder on this card, which I think is just fabulous.
When making cards, we always love to make the front of the card really lovely, but what a treat it is when you open the card and the inside is really pretty too! You can take your cards to a whole new level when you do something special inside too. I just embossed a tiny bit of the inside piece, and of course adding that extra white layer always makes the inside better! I hope you enjoy the card.

It is the first of December! Last night I had the last of my holiday card classes and I have so many beautiful Christmas cards to share. I am going to do my best to share as many of them as I can over the next month!
Tonight I will share a cute little card with a mouse on it. I thought it would be so cute to have a little mouse peeking out of the door to his house! The stamps are from Stampin'Up! Of course ~ Merry Mice and the verse is from the hostess set Time of the Year! I stamped the little guy on Watercolor paper and colored him with a blender pen and markers. Isn't he adorable!
That is all for tomorrow - check back soon for more!!
Today I will share a pretty little card I made with the Frosted Medallions set and Cookie Cutter Christmas! First let me say - the Frosted Medalions set is so beautiful. I absolutely love the big medallion stamp and it will be beautiful to use on cards throughout the year, not just for Christmas. Combine that with the Softly Falling embossing folder and you can create a nice wintery feel on your cards. The little Eskimo is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with an aqua painter.
Last weekend when I was at Gather Guesthouse in Waunakee, WI, one of the pillow surprises I received was the new Stitched framelits by Stampin'Up! I was so excited to get them and they are even more fabulous than I thought - you get ovals, squares and circles!! I couldn't wait to get home and try them out! This is a card that I did last night at class, and it is so lovely! I used the Brayer on the Woodlands Embossing Folder, with Soft sky ink, and then just used a blender pen and Soft Suede ink, to fill in the lines on the trees. I had to pull out a couple of retired products to finish the card ~ I really cannot live without a tiny flower punch. Whenever a card needs a little something more, that little flower does the trick.
