Thursday

A few Christmas Cards

I hope you are all doing well, and getting some crafty time in! I had a great day stamping, and then I went shopping! lol I hit The Cutting Garden, Photo Memories, and then Michaels. I had a 50% off coupon for M's, and also a gift card from Julie over at Mutch to Stamp. So I picked up one of the new Martha Stewart Edge punches, I LOVE IT! And a cuttlebug snowflake die cut. Then I went thru again with another 50% coupon and got a cute little bee stamp from Stampendous. I have someone in mind for that one. At the Cutting Garden they had the new Basic Grey Itsy stamps, they are really nice, and great price, $7.99. So of course I had to get one set. Then at Photo Memories I managed to get a heart corner punch that I have been wanting, as well as a few pieces of beautiful Bo Bunny p/p! I am so bad.....but I honestly didn't spend much because I used coupons and had a credit at Photo Memories. Gotta love that!

Anyway, one of the stores had asked me to make some store samples for them, using their stamps and papers, and any other supplies. So I played today and dropped them off tonight. These are the cards that I made for them, all using Stampendous stamps.

This snowman was stamped with versafine on white, then I used clear embossing powder to emboss. The image is coloured with Copic Markers, and I used some Martha Stewart Glitter on his hat, pom pom and mit cuffs. I also went over the tree, star, and ornaments with the spica glitter pen. I really like how this card turned out. I used the Nestabilities for all the circles.

The next card turned out pretty bright, but those are the papers I had to use! It is quite cheery though when you see it in person, and full of bling! Same again, stamped with versafine and embossed with clear powder. Coloured with Copics, and tons of Stickles!! I used some of the Hero Arts gemstones, cuttlebug snowflake background and die cut snowflake.

This last card is really like an ornament. It doesn't open. I am not sure about this one though. I spent alot of time colouring in the image, and blending colours, shading, then I decided it needed a bit something else, so I put versamark all over it and poured glittery clear embossing powder over it. It lost alot of the detail, but they seemed to really like it at the store, so who knows? I think it looked much better before...

Thanks so much for stopping by tonight. I hope you all have a wonderful evening!

Hi Kim,

Wow, these are great. I love the little ornament, it's really sweet!

The scalloped circle snowman card is really nice, too. Your colouring is just beautiful. Very cute!

Lastly, the tri-snowman card - I love it! The colours are non-traditional for a holiday type card - but it's such a bright, happy card. Great job! :) Thanks for sharing your projects with us!

Have a great weekend and I'll chat with ya when I get back.

Hugs,
Julie
