Holiday Cards

Just as I finished up my Holiday cards that I had been stressing about since I have been in a creative slump I created these beauties.  Both of them were simple to create and went together quickly with little stamping.  The first one I embossed the card front with a holly die then die cut "Holiday" out using silver glitter paper.  The image used  for the "O" is from Stampin Up. I then completed it with matching ribbon.

The Season Greetings card is a CASE card I saw on Pinterest.  I loved the cutout style!  Using Versamark and gold embossing powder from CTMH I stamped wording onto white card stock which I layered on to red linen card stock. The pattern paper is from LYB.  I purchased a ton of it on close out last year and have been trying to put it to use since.  Looks like I finally found the perfect use for it:). The flower stamp was colored using Copics. The swirl behind the flower is from Spellbinders which was cut from gold stock.

I now am ready for next year Bring it on I will not be stumped for ideas :)

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Oh Deer Taking Shape - Smile

Good Morning, thanks for stopping by.  This morning I was determined to get some holiday cards done so I headed to my craft room and spotted this Lawn Fawn set on my work table. The rest is history!  Needless to say,  I have not started my holiday cards yet but wanted to share this cute card using "In the Woods" set. The pattern paper is also from Lawn Fawn love the nice and earthy colors.  I am having so much fun playing with my newly acquired sets and the  Lawn Fawn CHA 2014 Catalog Challenge is just the kick I needed to get back to blogging. I doubt I will win as there are some real sweet cards entered (go check them out) but I we are all winners as it got sharing again after a long absence.

Hope you find much to smile about today.  I am off to actually get some holiday cards done.
