It's beginning to look...

Like CHRISTMAS!

I've been working on Christmas cards for this year. Here's just a few I created this week. Some were inspired by Pinterest. Others are from my own imagination.
This 1st card was created for a challenge for a group I belong to on FaceBook. We could only use blue and white. Nailed it!

Echo Park Paper Co. - Hello Winter Collection of paper and stickers.


#2 was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. The teardrops are actually the wings from Stampin' Up! Bird Builder Punch.


#3 Inspired once again by Pinterest.


#4 Was created using the dies from Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh and the stamps from Santa's Sleigh. This card opens to the full width of 8 1/2 ".


the middle is open to display a dangling ornament. 


#5 is my own design. Stampin' Up! Stamps Beautiful Season and Dina Wakley Scribbly Birds for the sentiment on cover.


Inside sentiment is from More Merry Messages from Stampin' Up!


#6 Another of my own designs. Decorative vellum is from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catty.
The poinsettia is a sticker.


Sentiment inside from SU More Merry Messages.


#7 Inspired by something I saw from Echo Park Paper Co.
Dies are from Poinsettia & Pine by Jolie from Essentials by Ellen.


Inside sentiment is from SU Versatile Christmas. Lace punch on decorative paper is from Martha Stewart.

PPCM&SGFB Giveaway

GIVE AWAY!!! For Paper Paws Swap Group ONLY!!!
This is a card I made for a give Away. All you have to do is pick a number between 1 and 1000. I asked hubs to pick the number, write it down and slip it into an envelope. On October 22 I will reveal the winning number. If your number is picked I will mail this card to you. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeasy! Now get picking!


For this card, I used Distress inks on whisper white cardstock. I used a Ranger blending tool to apply ink in a circular motion. The pinks were applied to the upper portion of the cs leaving a pale space for the sun. I punched a circle in a piece of post it paper. Then used a yellow ink and the blending tool to make my sun. Then I tore the paper to make the misty yellow on the sides of the sun. I then used the blending tool and some green ink on the bottom portion of the cs. I used some rock stamps to stamp the rocks in a medium brown. Then I went over them with the highlight stamps in Momento Black. I then used the black Momento ink to stamp the Lavinia Fairy. JustRite Clear Multi-Step Landscaping Elements are the stamps I used for the trees, flowers, grass and rocks. All of them are in the one set. To make the mountains in the background, I tore a piece of computer paper. I laid the torn edge of the paper on my scene, using a dauber and the Momento black ink, a downward pulling direction I made the mountains. Using another Lavinia stamp I stamped the plants across the top working right to left. Then down the left side. I used the blending tool and purple distress ink I went around all of the edges of the cardstock. I added white gel pen dots and some Stickles to the wings of the fairy and the flower pods. 
I think that's it. It takes about an hour for me to create one of these. Let me know if you have any questions.
