Season Greetings Poinsettia

I made this card for my sister. I was hoping to make a special card for her, but I think I over did the beads on the poinsettia. Oh well, she liked it, or at least she said she did.
I used a cuttlebug folder for my background mat. I stamped out the 5 petal flower and cut each petal apart and glued it to make this flower. Then added the pine sprigs and then beads for the middle of the flower. I used a white satin ribbon for the backing of the flower and to go around the card front. I used the gold sticker for the Season Greetings.
I had a lot of time on this card, and then to put to may gold beads on the flower. I know the next one if there is a next one not to add to many beads.
Thanks for stopping by...
I think you have had a lot to look at for the night, maybe I can get more on here tomorrow night.
Thanks again for checking out my blog.

Dancing Snowman

Isn't this the cutest snowman.
You just gotta love him.
I bought him at a convention from Designs Unlimited.
And this company will only sell at conventions.
He is so holly jolly and cute.
I colored his hat and scarf with Tombow Markers.
Added the tag, which is punches from Stampin Up.
A fancy blue ribbon and done.
My card base is navy, which looks like black in this picture, but really navy and a lighter blue for the mat
and then the White snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

Merry Christmas Snowflakes

I made this card and really liked the white snowflakes I added to the red cardstock. Don't remember the company on the snowflakes, but I just put them everywhere and it wasn't a big background stamp either. Just a little stamp with a couple of snowflakes on it. I used the Green Polka Dotted paper from Bo Bunny and white to accent the card. And the glittery red ribbon was a must on this card. The oval tag was punched with punches from Punch Bunch. Only thing left to do was add the brads on the tag. Done and really like this card alot.

Wishing you the joy Christmas brings

Very elegant card. Love the holly branches. Wow, my holly branches has a lot of glitter on them and they are really to shinny to see how nice they are. Sorry about the poorly taken picture.
This is another one of the new Great Impressions November Stamps. I colored the branches with Tombow Markers, a red glaze pen to the red berries and glittered everything. Adding the final touches to the card I added a Red and Gold Ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you aren't bored with my cards yet. I still have a few more to add.

Seasons Greetings

I like this card with all the shinny glitter on it. The green dotted paper is popped up from the card so the bulb could hang from under it. Wow that was hard to say in a few words. I think you know what I meant. The bulb is popped up also.
Stamps: Stampin Up
Paper: Bo Bunny and my stash
Embellishments: Ribbon, Silver Thread and Candy Cane Glitter.

Merry Christmas Santa

Hello Santa...
This is one of the new Great Impressions Christmas Stamps. Santa was painted with a new paint called Inspirations by Creative Inspirations, well, it is like Shimmerz. They are really shimmery. I only have a few of the colors. They make 55 colors. The one I used is called Garnet and Fairy Dust. It was rather easy to paint with a small paint brush and getting the shiny colors was fantastic. Anyway, the design paper is from a Christmas Stacker and blue and white was from my stash. I used the label punch from Stampin Up for the label. And gold brads to accent the card.

Merry Christmas Bird

Inside of card This card is awesome and has a lot of parts and pieces to it.
I love the red, green and brown cardstock together. I know it looks black, but it really is brown.
I seen this tutorial on SCS and I thought it would look nice with this bird stamp. Wow, I was right, I love it.
Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: Bo Bunny and my stash
Embellishments: Stampin Up Punches and Tombow Markers.

Sweet are the Joys

Inside of the Card
This card is so colorful to me.
Love the stocking stamp.
As you can see the Joy Scalloped circle stays on the inside of the card when opened.
I liked this card when I seen it on someones blog.
So who ever the design belongs to thanks for the inspiration.
I used Tombow markers to color the stockings and then I added gold dots and glitter to the stockings.
I can remember where the stocking stamp was from, but the inside verse is from Great Impressions. If you would like to know about the stocking stamp, email me and I can find my stamp and let you know.

Merry Christmas Snowflakes

This isn't one of my favorite cards this season. I liked the Snowflake embossing folder from Sizzix, but when I tried to sponge the snowflakes with a Brillance Blue Ink Pad, that is when it changed as not one of my favorite cards. Love the Large Snowflake punch from Stampin Up and I used a Martha Stewart little snowflake on top of the large snowflake and glittered both of them, and added blue gel stone in the middle to give the snowflakes some color. I added a tag and ribbon to finish the card.

Happy Christmas

Isn't this stamp georgous. I love it. So many way it can be used. I stamped it on beige/tan cardstock with Stazon ink, I needed to get a good image. I like how the Stazon worked and I didn't need to emboss it. Then I wanted some stripes and I had this striped paper from one of the Christmas Stackers. Worked fine for me. Added ribbon and a button. Done. This card was simple and quick. I used it in my workshops and probably did about 75 of them, so I needed simple and quick. Hope you like it. Oh I forgot to tell you that I got the stamp in the dollar bins at a local craft store. Way worth a dollar to me.

I have been away tooooooo long

I really need to get some of my new cards on this blog. So get you something to drink and also eat. It might take that long to see all of them. Or come back again later and finish seeing my new creations.
Thank you for stopping by......
