Ornaments Seasons Greetings Card

As soon as I opened the FALALA paper pad (by Crate Paper), I knew I wanted to cut an ornament out of that vintage scene sheet. This came together exactly as I imagined.

Holiday panic has begun for me. I was so comfortable last week, “oh, we have an extra week between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year…” YIKES. Reality slammed into me Friday when I flipped my wall calendar to December. Holy Guacamole, how am I going to get all of this done??? I know I do this to myself every year.

Have a good day!

Dog Christmas Cards

Yes, I have survived Thanksgiving hosting, and most of the leftovers are gone. I do feel like I have experienced a time warp, though.

Offspring3 brought this dog stamp home from a trip to Michael’s last week. Adorable. The dog on the left was stamped and heat embossed, the dog on the right was stamped (not embossed). The bow on both cards was colored using a Copic marker.

I came to the conclusion over the weekend that I am not designing one specific holiday card to send this year. I will probably put the same sentiment inside, but the cards are going to be random.

Supplies: Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Recollections, paper – Crate Paper Falala, Malmero Pearl Sparkle Green, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, inks – Copic R29, VersaFine Onyx Black, Vintage Sepia, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangles), Spellbinders (squares), embossing powders – Ranger clear, Stampendous Gold Detail, gold cord – Paper Mart.

Valentine Shaker Card

falling-hearts-valentine-shaker

I was in the mood for a shaker card! (no particular reason)

The background is ink blended through a falling heart stencil (Simon Says Stamp). The sentiment is a sticker from the Simon Says Stamp February 2016 card kit (Crate Paper).

Here is a close up of the shaker window:
