Christmas in September

The top 2 cards were made using Bo Bunny papers. The card that says Joy, I stamped some pale green snowflakes. There is green in the lighter colored layer but it got covered up. The card that says Noel I stamped snowflakes on pearlescent paper using Distress Ink. The stamps are Inkadinkadoo. I added a few crystals on both cards. I made 2 of each.

The bottom card was made using the QuicKutz A2 template. The paper is by Bazzill

Peace on Earth

In my eye this is ugly paper. I forced myself to use it. It does have some built in gloss embossing to give it a little bling. It is from a small pad of paper, DCWV I am thinking. On the 2 cards with red I backed up the sentiment with antique gold foil paper. I did 3 of each card. The entire time I was making them I told myself these will make a nice card to send to a guy.

Be gone ugly paper!

Cocoa to warm you up

Same colored digital image from The Paper Shelter. Different papers from Powder Mountain Collection Bo Bunny. The snowflake and the embossed snow are done in white pearlized paper.

Holiday lights

I have a couple of versions using this Dollie Dears digi. I used Diamond glaze on the bulbs to give them a popped up shiny look. The bulb strip on the first card is from a pack of Martha Stewart strips I bought 2 or 3 years ago. I used a button die to make the button on the second card. The paper is shiny and very fancy. Hard to use on a card but it made beautiful buttons.

I have a ton of green cardstock. After mounting all of the images on green I did not like the color at all. Pulled them all off and mounted them on red. I finally managed to find 1 sheet of what I call Christmas green and used it to cut some strips for 8 cards. I now have 12 card size pieces of green waiting for another project I guess.

Penny Black Wistful

I used this Penny Black stamp 3 different ways. The black and the blue image have coloring with Copic Markers. The middle one was done on water color look paper. All 3 have a Swarovski crystal on the cheek. The flowers on the blue card and the black card I used a glaze pen on the flowers to give it a little bling.

I miss your Face

I made a half dozen of these cards all looking a little different. I followed the design of the curved stripe paper to cut. Both papers are from the same Basic Grey line.
