Lots and lots of fun. and no, making this card is not one of the things I've been doing, saved this from last week so that I'd have something to post this week. Stamp is from the new Penny Black clear stamps Christmas set Holly Day Critters I got from Lisa's Scrap Shack (link at left). Snowflakes are punched CS is SU Bordering blue and Night O Navy. Background is sponged in Bordering Blue and Caramel ink on glossy cardstock. The image is stamped, watercolored and cutout before mounting on glossy cardstock sponged in Bordering Blue. The metal center of the snowflake is an 8mm bead cap with a clear rhinestone in the center of it. Thanks for looking hope everyone is having a fun Friday!

First Tall Card

Just a quick post today, thought that I'd add a try at a tall card. Used soft sky card stock for the base and K&Company DP. The flowers down the right side are actually on the back layer of the card I used a Creative Memories negative flower punch so they add a light airy feel to the card. Image is from Penny Black Critter party clear Stamps. Happy Birthday Border is From SU, Sentiment is from SU Holiday Hedgehogs! Also pierced the edges on the front of the card.
Thanks for looking!

Christmas Card for my DH

Thought since its been raining and we've been having a thunderstorm this morning that I'd work on a Christmas Card idea that I came up with the other day. I used a PB stamp from the Every which Way set and added the present by cutting out only the present image from a stamp in the PB Critter party Set. Used the computer to print out the Merry Christmas and meet me under the mistletoe sentiments. Thanks for looking! Hope you give it a try.
