Christmas cards

Here's three more Christmas cards that we did on Thurs.  I love the new designer series paper in the holiday catalog.  It's so very vintage.  1940's and 1950's style.  Reminds me of Christmas when I was a kid.  This first card used the Home for Christmas paper.  Love the little reindeer.
 

This next card is using a stamp set out of the big catalog called Every Blessing.  It's really simple but the gold velum really sets it off.

 
This last card uses a set that was introduced last year called Festival of Trees and the plaid tree is out of a new set called Lots of Joy.  Both trees are the same size and the tree punch cuts them out.  The snow flake is from the stamp set for the Perpetual Calendar kit.

Played this morning with some of my new stuff.  This first picture isn't the best but it's the new glitter ribbon out of the Holiday catalog.  It comes white but you can color it by turning it over and using markers on the back of the ribbon.  These colors are black, rose, turquoise and daffodil delight.  I love this ribbon and I think you will too.
 
  
Here is one of the new ornament framelit's on gold foil paper. I love these too and plan on making a lot of ornaments out of the different color foil.  I've got the new red foil but I haven't even had time to open the package yet.


And then I just played around with making Christmas tags.  My sister loves to make tags to sell so I was trying out a few new designs.  I can see the sleigh one making it onto a card.  You might be able to see that I did spritz these with smooch spray.  I wish that had never retired.  I'm almost out of it.

Here's a couple of cards that we made at convention using the new stamp set called "Your Presents"  There's boxes, bows and an ornament in the set.  It'll be great for anytime that you give someone a present.  We made the cards and decorated the envelopes.
 


For this card we made the envelope using the new envelope paper.  I'm trying to get into the habit of always decorating the envelopes. It just makes the card a little more special.

Fun at Convention

Here's a sneak peek at a card made with a stamp set out of the new Holiday catalog.  This is the cutest card ever.  There's a lot of vintage 1940's stuff in the catalog.  You'll love it.  You should be getting you catalog sometime in August.  If you don't just let me know and I'll get one for you.

Here's a cute Christmas card that was inspired by the card on the bottom of page 35 in the annual catalog.  The background was embossed using the new Bohemian folder.  The little angel was made using the bow tie punch.  The snowflakes are from the perpetual calendar stamp set.  Don't have my catalog right here so I can't look up the name of the set.  The sequin trim adds just the right amount of bling.  I really like this card.  It might show up again at a Christmas stamp a stack.
