Final Christmas Cards for 2017


Sharing the last four Christmas Cards of 2017 I made for my Sister-in-law and Nieces.  They really loved them a lot! 

All four have the same Christmas Tree image but each tree was die cut from different papers.  And the backgrounds are all different.

Thank you for all your lovely comments you shared in 2017.

Wishing all of you a Very Happy & Healthy New Year!

Merry Christmas!


Well all the Christmas cards are made and mailed!  My list got a little bigger this year and I was so glad I started making the cards in November.  I made several different designs but only took photos of the ones I sent to my family.  Today I am sharing two cards with you.  More will come soon.


Snowflake Shaker Card


Snowflake Wreath


I guess by now you can see that snowflakes seem to be the theme I went with this year.  Each card I am sharing has snowflakes on them in some form or other.  My favorite themes for Christmas time are Snowflakes, Snowmen, and Christmas trees.

If you have any questions about these cards please feel free to send me an email.



Season’s Greetings!

Happy Birthday Card


I made this card for my friend Judy who celebrated her birthday on October 29th. 

I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire when she made a shaker card using tulle.  What I did was make the entire card front the shaker. 

I had a hard time trying to decide if I should put a sentiment on the card front but nothing looked right.  The Happy Birthday and verse sentiments are in the inside (not shown).

Ghostly Greetings


I finally got my youngest Grandsons’ Halloween cards completed and they are in the mail!  The cards were such a challenge plus very tedious for me.  Now that its all behind me maybe the next time I make a pop-up box card it will be a little easier (wink).

I was unable to get a good photo of all the sides on each box but they were decorated with more little ghosts and spider webs.

All images were water colored using Zig Clean Brushes and were cut out using my Scan ‘N Cut.

Touchdown!


My youngest grandson is playing football for the first time this year.  He is doing great (he got 3 touchdowns so far).  I made this card to show him how proud I am on how well he is doing.

(Front)


(Inside)


All images are digital.  Football player was colored using Chameleon Colored Pencils and cut out using my Brother Scan ‘N Cut.  Name and Number on football image shirt was created in Paint Shop Pro. The goal post and flag pole was colored using Paint Shop Pro and cut out using my Scan ‘N Cut.  The team name ‘Avengers’ was created using two alphabet punches by Martha Stewart. 

Two stamps were used for the front and inside sentiments: You Make Me Proud (Technique Junkies) and Congrats-Way To Go using an older stamp which isn’t marked who made it.  Sky created using a stencil.  Grass area was created using Distress Oxide Inks.  Striped papers are digital.  And everything else is from my stash.

Sailing!



My 10 year old grandson went to sailing camp for a week this past summer and learned to sail plus he took a water safety course too.  I made this card to express how proud I am of him for a job well done!

I used three stamps to make this card: Sailing (Simon Says Stamp), Life Anchor (Waffle Flower) and You Make Me Proud (Technique Junkies). And I did all the coloring using Chameleon Colored Pencils.
