Cheerful Trees

The first card I didn't base off of anyone's card, although it's been done in this same fashion by almost everyone.  I am not sure that I like it - it seemed like a good idea at the time - silver embossed on silver - but seeing it, it seemed too plain.  I added the red pearls to give it some color, and I think that helped.

  • Stamps: SU! Cheerful Christmas
  • Paper: Silver
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Accessories: Silver embossing powder, heat tool, red pearls
 The second card is a departure from normal - I have to say I don't think I have ever made a black and gold Christmas card before, although I really like it - it's very elegant.  It's based off of scootsv's Gold Tree 2 card.  I am not sure I'm entirely happy with it (that happens a lot, I'm my own worst enemy).  Not to mention I somehow lost one of my tree stamps from Evergreen while making this...the case of the disappearing stamp.

  • Stamps: SU! Evergreen, PTI Take a Bough
  • Paper: Gold, Basic Black
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Accessories: Gold embossing powder, heat tool

  • Paper: PTI Select White, PTI New Leaf
  • Accessories: Stamp-a-majig, Queen & Co Pearls, SU! Tree Punch, MFT Banner Die

Happy Holly Days

I feel kind of meh about this card, but it is what it is.

Merry and Poinsettias

I have two cards today!

The first card is a CASE of I'm in Haven's Merry card.

I used PTI's Wonderful Words: Holiday dies, cut three times for each word and glued together to make the words stronger.  The words were then very carefully popped up with dimensionals.


    • Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Glorious Green
    • Ink: None
    • Stamps: None
    • Accessories: PTI Wonderful Words: Holiday dies, dimensionals
    The second card is a CASE of  Becky Jensen's Joyful Christmas in Gold and Vanilla card; I changed the colors and the sentiment.

    • Paper: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
    • Ink: Cherry Cobbler
    • Stamps: Joyful Christmas, Flourishes Trimmed with Love
    • Accessories: Petals a Plenty EF, Cherry Cobbler EP, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details

    All Wrapped Up

    I always love it when I think of an idea on my own - I'm sure the card below has been done a million times in a million different variations, but I didn't look at any of those before making the card below.

    • Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, SU Real Red (in inside of card)
    • Ink: Real Red
    • Stamps: PTI Season's Greetings
    • Accessories: Glue Dots, Real Red Satin Ribbon
