I'm finally finished!




I think I'm finally done with my Christmas Cards, yay! I am so happy to be finished. So today you get to see the rest of my cards. I stayed up until Midnight last night getting these done. The first one I call my Soft Snowman, I used Sage Shadow, Soft Sky, Wintergreen Designer Series Paper and White paper. I stamped the snowman in Sage Shadow and colored him in with my watercolor pencils (non-SU). I stamped the snowflakes in Soft Sky and put some stickles in the middle. I just love these colors together! I wish I had more Sage Shadow paper, but I ran out, so I could only make two of these. It so pretty, I want to keep it for myself (but what would I do with it?) Next is an idea I got from my SBS2 sister, The Lucky Clucker (check her site out...amazing!). It's a simple design, easy to do and just cute as can be. So for some reason my scanner cut off the right of the card, but the white piece is centered. I used Always Artichoke and White. I used the Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder for have the white and tied Always Artichoke ribbon around the middle. Used Real Red to stamp Merry Christmas and the holly is Always Artichoke and Real Red. I didn't feel like adding any layers, so I left it at this, and I am very pleased. I also did a couple red ones. Thanks Lucky Clucker for the idea!!!! And lastly, I needed a Christmas Card for my niece who is coming for Christmas (yay!). She's a teenager and loves pink, so, this is what I came up with:
I did a 5x5 square card using Pixie Pink (I think) and Wild Wasabi (I saw a similar color combo on Rhonda's Design Haven (link here) and really liked it together, and I also liked how she did the ribbon). I stamped the snowflakes using Pink Passion, layered another Pixie Pink and Wild Wasabi and then used White. I stamped the snowman using Wild Wasabi and colored in the hat and scarf using Pixie Pink. You can't tell, but on the top of the hat and the buttons, I used some pink rhinestones and I also used stickles on the snow around and under the snowman. I added more rhinestones at the bottom. I am really happy how this turned out. I think she will really like it.
