Merry December!


Merry Wishes to you for a peaceful & joyful December!

This month I’ve used Everything Eleanor for the background.  I used the “kissing technique”.  I first stamped the image with Crumb Cake, then stamped some trees with Garden Green DIRECTLY ONTO THE STAMP!

Other stamp sets:  Festival of Trees & Oh, What Fun!

Christmas Cards Already?!

I always have the best of intentions when it comes to sending out my Christmas Cards!  I mean, I make cards almost every day!  But December always catches up with me and then there’s just too much to do to send out a bunch of cards.

Not this year!  Monday I gathered with some other determined stampers and we spent the very hot day stamping, eating, and listening to Christmas music (and having a fun, fun time!).  It was a “shoebox swap” so everyone came up with their own designs and did the prepping for everyone else.  The cards were so completely different and beautiful!!

Shoebox Swap for Christmas 2015

Wonderous Wreath

Here’s my card, using Wonderous Wreath, and cased from Elaine Schader. Thanks, Elaine!  I couldn’t change a thing!

Francine's Snow Place Card

This adorable card was created by Francine, one of my downline girls, using Snow Place and that beautiful Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Marylou's Star Card

Marylou, also one of my downline, came up with this pretty card.  Using the Star Framelits, this is a perfect way to use up some DSP!

Louella's Snowflake Card

Louella came up with this beautiful card!  Love the colors!!  Louella used a retired set and the Festival of Trees.  And we all appreciated how simple it was!  Especially after making Yvette’s amazing card!!

Yvette's Slider Card



Yvette's Slider Card (2)

Isn’t that the coolest card?!!  It was a little bit involved, especially since Yvette (also my Downline Girl) is the Embellishment Queen!!  Good thing we each made 4 cards because I’m definitely keeping one for myself!

Ramona's Wonderland Card

Last, but not least, it’s Ramona’s elegant card using Wonderland and the new, pretty Cording Trim.
