Checking That Naughty List!

 Hello!

Have a few of my Christmas cards to share today.  I used the same main image for all the cards, but used different layouts, accents, and die cuts.  I also used different color palettes (mostly because I ran out of red and green cardstock... ). 

Today's cards have navy blue as the main color.  

Stamp: Don't Stop Believin' (Stampin' Up)




Santas are stamped on white cardstock.  I used Black Archival ink on the two samples.  Coloring was done with water base markers.  I used four markers making 43 cards.  So, a lot of coloring on the Santas.  
The card above has die cut and punched snowflakes with a red ribbon bow.



All the insides look like this:



Below is a second layout.  I die cut the landscape background and layered a fussy cut Santa over top. Accents are die cut stars and blue striped ribbon bow.  Also added some glitter paper under the sentiment.



Will be back next time with more of my Christmas cards.  Hope your day is full of crafty hand made fun.

Floral Wreath

 Hello Everyone,

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.  Ours was great.  Had a family dinner with all the loved ones.  So sweet.  We had snow over the weekend here in Michigan, USA.  Pretty early for snow, but here it is!  

So, I have two cards to share that have nothing to do with snow.  LOL  

Stamp and Die Set: Art Gallery (Stampin' Up) 




I inked the leaf section of the stamp and stamped several.  Then inked the floral section.  I cut them up a bit and put them back together.  I added an extra green stem to the upper right area. The florals were layered onto die cut circles.



Used the same stamps on card below, but with a totally different color palate.  A bee was added.




Pretty floral cards to send out to someone special.  Hope you are having a lovely day. See you next time with a Christmas card.

Floral Wreath Card

 Hello Everyone,

Made a pretty floral wreath card using the Art Gallery stamp set (Stampin' Up).  I die cut the flowers, leaves, and the circles for the background.  Also added  a dry embossed piece to frame the layout.

Time to Get Cozy

 Hello Everyone!

The Fall weather is here!  Nice and cool.  Time to cozy up and wear your favorite sweater.  Oh, yeah, and don't forget raking leaves!

This little guy is having a blast raking those fall leaves!  So cute!

Images are colored with Copic markers.

Used lots of fall colors for the cardstock and ribbons. I actually used all my yellow CS!  Guess I need to replace that.  Haven't found the right shade of yellow yet.

Gold Leaf Flower Part Two

 Hello Everyone,

I am back with a few more of my gold leaf flower cards made with the stamp set Art Gallery (Stampin' Up).  I added a die cut background piece and additional flowers.  Again, no sentiments.  They will be added later.
