2 Christmas cards

I haven't blogged in a while.  The family has been keeping me busy.  I'm slowly making Christmas cards, but today I thought I would share 2 reject cards that I had made back in June for Paper Craft mag.

I really like how the first card turned out.  Pink + kraft = yum!  The pink paper is glitter paper so the whole card sparkles.  I cut the snowflake out using my Spellbinders Nestabilities, the stamp and banner die are PTI.

I don't love how the second card turned out.  It started off with one idea and snowballed into a mess. That happens, right?  I do like the colours though and will try that combo again.  I made the snowflakes out of felt using PTI's Peace Be Still die.  The letters are glitter stickers.

I'm hoping that this is one of many posts in the next little while.  I love making Christmas cards and tags and plan to post more soon.

Thanks for dropping by today!  I appreciate it :)

Happy Halloween!

Yes, a day late, I know.  Better late than never, right?  Here are the cards I made for my kids.

The stamps are Inkadinkado that I paper pieced (I love these guys!  So cute).  Most of the paper is Echo Park or scraps that I had.  This is a lot of pattern paper for me but I really tried to push myself, it turned out ok.  The vampire's cape is made of some black glitter paper.  For their hair I added some black enamel (Rangers), you can't see it very well in the pics.

Hope you all had a great Halloween.

Thanks for visiting!
