More early Christmas cheer!

I'm having fun making Christmas cards so I thought I'd post a few more! I love the snowman and it was so easy to make. I love the paper I found to make it: Lasting Impressions' Weathered White and Cherry Pie. I used an acrylic stamp set to make a little scene, tied a piece of cranberry & tan string into a bow, and attached a paper button. Hohoho!

OWH Sketch Challenge #27

The printed paper for my card is from a little 5x7 mat pad from Me & My Big Ideas (Michael's). It has some neat vintage-y papers in it. I posted another card I made today (it's not based on this sketch) because I'm having so much fun with the button punch! It was a good day to stay in today and make cards---so hot!! Have a good week!

Midweek Throwdown

Happy Wednesday! I had fun coloring Anthony's cute digi with the Marvy LePlume markers I already had, but I want the Copics! I also used my new button punch -- Paper Wishes sent it really quickly. I love that you can make buttons from any paper; the buttons and card front paper are from DCWV's The Green Stack. Love that all-American red bandanna print! I messed up a bit trying to highlight the edges of the scalloped oval (Spellbinders die), ah well. I also used a Fiskars border punch.

OWH Sketch challenge #26

Hi everybody. For this card I used DCWV's (or is it DWCV?) "The Green Stack". The stamp I ordered from a site I found, They have some neat rubber stamps, including vintage images, which I love. The "thinking of you" stamp is a Hampton Art and I got it either at Michael's or AC Moore, where I seem to be spending all of my free time lately!

Shipper's Choice

Here are two cards I made that kids might like to get from Mom or Dad. You can tell I really like my little owl stamp, haha. Inside the card, I stamped the owl again and added a text balloon saying "You! That's hoo!" The second card uses one of Sandy's cute digis and freebie text. Hope you all have a great day!

Just me having fun with the sketch challenge. I thought the daisy was a good accent for the punched out daisies!
