Not sure where the time has been going lately. I get up early every morning, blink, and it's time to go to bed again. I have been busy creating Christmas cards and until now haven't stopped to photograph any of them.
Here's one of my favorites.
I stamped a Memory Box Bramble Wreath wooden stamp onto a sheet of patterned paper. Then I used a Martha Stewart holly paper punch and paper punched 8 double holly sprigs. I used a Xyron tape runner to adhere them to the patterned paper. The bow was punched from a Martha Stewart bow punch. The text was created with a Hero Arts clear stamp. The bookplate that frames the text was created with a Sizzix die.
I am happy with this card too. First I ran a sheet of patterned tag through a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I used Lawn Fawn's "Harold's ABCs" clear stamp set to create the text. The moon was punched from a Marvy Uchida purple circle punch. I stamped an Amuse Artstamps "Santa Silhouette" onto the moon.
The houses were stamped with stamps from Paper Trey Ink's "Boards and Beams" clear stamp set. I embossed them and cut them down so that just the rooftops were left. Then I colored them in with markers.
Here's one of the gift cards I made yesterday.
The reindeer was stamped with a Memory Box "Lightbulb Reindeer" wooden stamp. The tree was punched with a Martha Stewart paper punch and the text is from PaperTrey Ink. I added tiny rhinestones to the reindeer's antlers and nose. The stamped impression shows where the rhinestones could be placed. I placed some 1/8" Scor-tape along the snowbanks and then pressed the tape into some white glitter.
That's it for today. Hoping to have what I call a "Cookathon" today so that I can fill the freezer with some soups, stews, and spaghetti sauce. First there's grocery shopping to get done.
Have a great day!
