Clean and Simple!

Happy Christmas Eve!

I made these cards today to have on hand to use after Christmas for some thank you notes. I made 2 of each. They were fun and quick to make.

I can't take credit for the idea or design. I was inspired by a Simon Says Stamp blog post by Jennifer McGuire. You can view Jennifer's post and her tutorial here. It was such a cool idea and gives you yet another use for your dies.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season! I hope you can enjoy time with family and friends and relax for a few days!
Merry Christmas

Last 2 Christmas Cards of the Year!

Well I finally got the last two cards finished just in time! My daughter Taylor and her boyfriend are coming for dinner and to have our little "Christmas" visit. I made these two cards this morning. for them.

 This stamp is by Whimsy and is called Heidi with Sledge. She is so adorable and I love the little bird sitting on the package.

I used my new Simon Says Stamp stencil "Falling Snow" and Bo Bunny silver glitter paste and created some sparkly falling snow. This is the first time I used these 2 products and I must say I am impressed with them both!

Christmas card

Hi everyone!

Just want to share a quick post of the Christmas card I made to give to my Mom & Dad! My Mom loves snowmen so this card should make her smile for sure!

 I love this cute stamp by Whismy Stamps called Miss Frosty. I think the little birds are so sweet! I chose the background paper from the Echo Park Collection called Very Merry Christmas, and the "merry christmas" paper is from Carta Bella "So This Is Christmas" collection (last years). I love the Frostyville Border from Memory Box, it's so delicate and pretty! I added some sequins, red twine, tiny silver bells, diamond stickles and wink of stella to finish off the card.

Birds, Holly, Scarf & Button: R35, R37, R39
