Christmas cards-2011

Christmas cards I made for this year:
Can't remember the cardstock I used;
this first card: snowflake embossing folder; cardinal cut from 50 states using the cricut

this card was a total "case" from Archivers:
copic markers-red; green; gold stickles; gold leafing pen;
cuttlebug & die; stamps from Archivers

this card is almost a repeat of # 1- "Glory to God..." stamp is from C.T.M.H.

this shaker card is from a class that Tammy at Toyrifix taught: sooo much fun!!!!

"Merry Christmas" stamp from C.T.M.H. ; wreath.birds.bow cut
using cricut & Martha Stewart seasonal cake cart.

Believe & Santa stamp I think came from Archivers

this was soooooo much fun to make: everything belongs to Tim Holtz...
the background is a stamp with matching embossing folder- so cool!!!
I used Distress stains to color the stamp. I forgot the "red berries"
on my holly on the lamp post, but still like the way it turned out.

Hope you enjoyed looking....

untill the next time...... thank you....

Pumice Stone Distress ink pad; white puffy paint; & of course I quilled the red bird...

I was chatting with a good friend of mine & told her that I needed to make a few cards for some other friends of mine, but
I just didn't feel like it. Well, she told me to get off FaceBook - get busy & meet her back on FaceBook in a few hours to
post my cards.


I got a little side tracked....


I did get a few simple cards done & loaded.
I have had the Cricut Wild Card cartridge for way over a year & never really "played" with it, so thought now was as good a time as any to try it out.....and... (wowzers- you can even make the envelopes to match the cards. I didn't take a picture of that, but this first cards envelope is cute)..... thinking I will use it more....
page 56...outside of card
cut at 5"

page 52 - cut at 4 3/4"

page 55 cut at 5"

Hope you enjoyed looking & have a great day.
Thanks Betsy for getting me "moving".
Untill another time.....

I went to TroyOh. the first wk. in Aug to visit a good friend of mine. While there another good friend of ours came,
and showed us how to create a triangle card - diorama card & a stair-step card. All 3 were fun to do & make. I forgot to take a picture of the triangle card.
I have made a diorama card before, but the one Hewitt showed us was a lot more fun & seemed to be easier for me to make. Here is the "outside":

the "inside" - has a greeting that didn't show up in the picture:

I think this stair-step card turned out cute:

Thanks Hewitt for a fun-filled day.

Hope you enjoyed looking & untill the next time.......

Here it is Feb3,2011 & we made it through the ice & snow storm without loosing our electricity. On the first & second we had freezing rain the snow on top of that. Schools were closed for 2 days here in Wooster & the g.k. were off today as well. I think they were happy about that. Wonder how happy they will be when they find out they have to make up those days???

A few friends have been asking for some cards, so I better get busy & snap some pictures to put up here.
Until next time....
