The Snowmen

This great trio of snowmen in a digital image is from Ka Wink E Dink.  They are colored in copics, the sentiment is a stamp from Inkadinkadoo and the DP is from Provo Craft.  Started to post this earlier, but sometimes, shopping, making dinner and the laundry get in the way!

The Christmas Cat

This wonderful Christmas digital image is from Priscilla Styles.  My sister has acquired a rescue cat in the last year, so this was for her.   I colored the image with copics and mounted it on two DPs from Graphic 45.  No sentiment necessary on the front of the card as all the Xmas wishes are there.

Three Winter Birds

This digital image by Jehanne, Just Some Lines captures the season very well. The image was a winner in the Digi Club 1st contest in December.   I colored the image with copics. I added a red cs oval behind the image and mounted it on DP from DCWV.  I put a red ribbon with white stitching between the two designer papers.  Added a punched and embossed pointsettia  and three small punched out Xmas trees.

Cards for Christmas

This image is from  Bugaboo stamps colored with copics, framed by a piece of mesh mounted on DP from my stash.  A pointsettia and leaves punched from a sheet of metal. 

The same image colored in slightly different colors mounted on mesh with glitter and a stamped sentiment, and a green & red ornament popped up.  DP from Provo craft.

Staying with the Christmas theme.

Before Christmas, I got together with a group my sister in law belongs to and I made several cards that day.  This card was made with DP from Basic Grey, Using some plain and some patterned cardstock, we cut out two circles, and then placed triangles to form trees on top of the ribbon we used to divide the card.  A gold brad on the ribbon and a Peel off for the sentiment.

 Not sure whose stamp the ornament is, embossed in blue and mounted on white cs which had been embossed with the swiss dot cuttlebug folder.  The blue cardstock was embossed with a Crafts-Too folder.  A small white bow was added above the ornament.


This card was very quick to make, some distress ink was smooshed over the DP so that it was not so bright.  Two cut outs from DP by Graphic 45, a few punched out pointsettias and greenery and the card was finished.

I made a couple more cards that day, but must have forgotten to take photos.

Christmas Cards

I can't believe it's been a whole month since I last posted on my blog.  December has been a very busy time, with lots of visitors, my curling, Christmas, and a computer that was not working properly.
It was fun though, I got to see all of my family, and spend some time with them and their children. 
Anyway, hope that I can make up for some lost time and I will post some of the cards that I made for Christmas, which of course have all been sent out a few weeks ago.

These three cards were made from a wonderful Christmas digital image from Priscilla Styles.  The red and green card is colored in copics and metalic watercolors from Yasutomo.
The second card is colored with copics and I used a white pen on the ribbon, small and large diamond dots on the bell and some metalic paint.  I did a circular cut around the bells and added a larger silver circle behind it.  I used a corner punch from EK Success and Silver paper as the bottom layer on the front of the card.
The third card in shades of green, purple and turquoise is colored with copics. The circle is part of the digital image. the designer paper is from BoBunny and I was able to pop  up the ornaments and the two darker circles in the top left and lower right corner, adding a rhinestone to each of them.
