12 Days of Christmas Cards

On the 12th day of cards, I bring you a lovely card that I have received this year from my super talented friend, Lindeen Graw.  Her cards are always so beautiful and this one is no exception.  I just had to share her talent with you.



Isn't that pretty?  Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and all the best in 2015!

12 Days of Christmas Cards

We're coming to the end of my cards but I have saved what I think is one of the nicest cards for today.  This was made with our newest Cricut cartidge - "Artfully Sent" (Z3017), which has 50 pop up cards, 50 scene cards, 50 sentiment cards, 50 pocket cards, 50 sleeve cards, plus all the icons and a font to go with them!!!  The bundle also comes with a pkg of 24 sheets of white daisy cardstock and three coordinating stamp sets - all you need to create stunning cards.


The stamped images come from B1259 Bethlehem, an older set from CTMH that I recently purchased from another consultant.  It was perfect for this pop-up card.   I used a Spellbinder die to cut the labels on the front of the card, one in Colonial White and the larger in black.  I used an embossing folder on the shimmer paper underneath the labels, and it's all tied up with some red twine.  I used a little bit of gold paper that I had bought years ago (for $3.50 a sheet!) in back of the cut out star to add a little shimmer.  Artfully Sent cut the popped out pieces along with the base card with the star burst and slits to make the pop outs.  LOVE this new cartridge!

12 Days of Christmas Cards

Day 10 and I have a cute one for you today!
I love snowmen!  This guy is from C1506 Flakey Friends and he just makes me smile.  He was stamped with Versamark and embossed with black embossing powder to give him a little shine, as was the sentiment from our Artfully Sent Cricut collection stamps(Z3017).  I coloured him in with our Shinhan markers, then matted with black cardstock and adhered with our 3-D foam tape.  The white daisy cardstock was embossed with my snowflake folder and Cuttlebug and was layered on top of paper from the Wonderland paper collection  - yes, it's been around awhile too!  Some fun twine and a snowflake finish this card off!

12 Days of Christmas Cards

This is my offering for the 9th day of Christmas cards:
Can you spot some more Christmas paper from Roz's paper archives....LOL  This paper is from Partridge & Pear and I hated to part with it....(shhhh...I still have some left).  Scallop edged punch was used on the Cranberry cardstock with a little bling added to each space.  The ornament strings were stamped on Colonial White cardstock with D1366 Holiday Trinkets and New England Ivy ink, the sentiment from A Very Merry Christmas with Cranberry ink.  Aren't those 3-D ornaments cute?  They were created using our Artiste Cricut cartridge (Z1790) and  B1357 "All The Best" My Acrylix stamp set.  I cut the ornaments three times for each, then stamped the cut out shapes three times for each colour, folded them in half and glued them together, then adhered to the card.  Finished with some of our retired colour-ready seam binding ribbon tied in a bow.

12 Days of Christmas Cards

On the 8th day of Christmas......oh wait, I can't sing...LOL  Here is the next card:
I just love this die from Memory Box and I am ashamed to say that this is the first time I've used it!  It's been in my drawer for two years.  I finally used it to cut this tree with Ponderosa Pine cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from "A Timber" on White Daisy cardstock, then embossed it with my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I punched flowers with Ruby cardstock, pierced them with my CTMH piercing tool and used mini brads to adhere the die to the card. I found it easier than trying to glue that delicate die cut.  Layered with Ruby and Ponderosa Pine cardstocks and it's done!

12 Days of Christmas Cards

Day 7 and I have a card that was CASed from one of our past Idea Books and features a past Hostess Rewards set - Warm Winter Wishes.   Now I have to admit, I originally wasn't going to use this set.  I had purchased a cute penguin set that came with a die to cut them out with at Michaels.  However, I could not get ink to adhere to that stamp, the more I tried, the worse it was.  Needless to say, it went back to Michaels and I have vowed to not purchase any more from the company that made it.  Nothing beats the quality of CTMH stamps - period!  So here he is:
The background was random stamped with the snowflake from this set, then topped with an overlay cut from our Artbooking Cricut cartridge (Z1906).  The red striped ribbon is from May Arts.  Stamped that cute little penguin in black ink, then fussy cut him out and added him to the top of my sentiment.  I had been hoarding some of our retired waxy flax (I really miss that stuff!) but decided to share it with the ladies for this card - it's tied on the white glitter button.  A little bit of Stickles and we're done!

12 Days of Christmas Cards

Half way there!  This is the 6th card I have to show you:
Sparkle & Shine paper from last year was the base for this card - sometimes I buy a lot of paper and then have it for several years before I use it all up.  This year, I made a conscious attempt to use up some of my papers from the last couple of years, instead of buying a bunch of new paper!  My scrapping room is overflowing with paper, so I REALLY needed to do this!  The sentiment comes from another hostess rewards set - B1455 Be Jolly - and was stamped with Versamark, embossed with silver embossing powder.  A little Juniper cardstock for colour to mat the sentiment, trimming the chevron at the bottom.  I had to add some of our Silver Shimmer Tape (Z1799) to bring out the silver shimmer is these papers, which you can't see in the photo.  A little red twine and two white brads completed the card.

12 Days of Christmas Cards

OK, I think I am on day 5....this one was CASed from our Annual Expressions Idea Book with only a couple of minor changes. 
C1587 Sing Glory is one of our Hostess Rewards sets, not available for purchase.  The only way to get this one is by having a home or online gathering!  I adore this angel, the whole set really.  She is stamped with Glacier ink, then over top of her, the sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with our silver embossing powder.  I stamped the sentiment again with Ruby ink and fussy cut out the "glory to the newborn" and adhered to the card.  Matted with Ruby cardstock, then place on a piece of patterned paper from Frosted - our Christmas paper from last year.  I added a few red sequins and some sparkles to finish it off. 

If you'd like to host a gathering to earn this lovely stamp set, let me know!

12 Days of Christmas Cards

Day 4 of 12 featuring Christmas cards!  I love our Polar Bear Holiday stamp set (C1557) and our Snowhaven paper pack (X7188B), both used to create this card.  I random stamped the snowflake stamp on the Glacier card base.  Added the striped patterned paper from Snowhaven and trimmed with a bit of velvet ribbon I had picked up last year.  Image and sentiment were stamped with black ink, then coloured with our Shinhan alcohol markers - LOVE them!  More snowflakes stamped with Glacier ink, then  matted with black cardstock, then popped up with our thin 3-D foam tape (Z2060), added a couple of sparkles and voila! The inside of the card says " Wishing you joy to last the whole year through".


Another one tomorrow! :-)

12 Days of Christmas Cards

Day 3!  This card was one that was inspired by Judy May on Pinterest....every time I searched for Christmas Card ideas, hers showed up!  It's another great card that uses up scraps and gets those circle punches in use again.  The trickiest part of this card was to get the circles to fill in all the spaces in the shape of the tree.  My ladies did this one at the card day, in both colours.....most of us prefer the blue.  What do you think?

I love all the shimmer and foil papers we used for these cards, very sparkly but not overpowering.  Sentiment and ribbon were all I needed to add.

12 Days of Christmas Cards

Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas Cards featuring another card we made at my annual card day:

This one was pretty simple to make but it is one of my favourite cards this year.  White Daisy cardstock was cut with a Poppy Stamps die, Merry Christmas was heat embossed with Versamark and White Daisy embossing powder on blue shimmer paper.  Added a strip of silver Shimmer Trim and some sparkles, both from CTMH - done!  I always say, less is more sometimes. :-)

12 Days of Cards!

It's a chilly Sunday morning with overcast skies, a perfect day to get my Christmas cards written out!  Then I realized I hadn't photographed some of them, or posted them here, so here we go.  Day 1 of twelve days of Christmas cards: 
I first saw this card when a friend of mine, Bonnie Robar, was making it during our cottage weekend.  Then I saw it again on Pinterest but both versions did not have the twine and the button - I felt my card needed something in that space and the twine kept with the "rustic" feel of the card.  Just like making a scrap quilt, this card is great for using up scraps of paper.  This was one of the cards I did my the ladies who attended my annual Christmas Card Day and we did it in both colours.
