Back today with my last Christmas Card post and to wish you all a
Very Merry Christmas and Happier New Year.
Best Wishes and Kindest Regards,
Popping in to post a winter and/or coffee themed card using My Favorite Things stamps.
I have used this layout before here. On this card I included the bear and Moose. The images are colored with copic markers and fussy cut. The background is cut with a Stampin Up die. A light blue cs is used for the card base.

Here are more of my Christmas cards. You can see that I used this design for most of my cards. I found this layout in a Stampin Up catalog and cased it. The background paper differs from card to card. I used papers from various 6 x 6 stacks I had in my stash. Many of them were from My Mind's Eye.
All cards were made with a white card stock base.
Sending you sweet Christmas wishes! One more post before Christmas!
See you again soon.
I made lots of cards using this design. I found this layout in a Stampin Up catalog and cased it. The background paper differs from card to card. I used papers from various 6 x 6 stacks I had in my stash. Many of them were from My Mind's Eye.
I will be back next time with a few more of my Christmas cards. Hope your day is full of Holiday cheer.
Back today with another of my Christmas cards. I ended up making around 50 cards. All have been sent out.
This card was made with a lovely piece of Webster's Pages decorative paper for the background. The Santa is from Impression Obsession's Ho Ho Ho clear set (retired). Santa was colored with Copics and fussy cut.
I only took a couple photos of the inside of the cards I made. The insides are all the same with the exception of the strip of decorative paper. I matched the paper to the front of each card. But, I used the same stamp on all the cards. This stamp is from Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set - Stampin' Up.
Hope your Holiday preparations are going well. And, if you don't have any prep to do, hope you are enjoying your day. LOL!
Sending a virtual smile!
Mailed all of my Christmas cards yesterday! Finished my gift shopping! All done prepping for Christmas. Well, I still have to clean my house before the big day. I am hosting dinner this year. Already have the menu planned and family members are all bringing a dish.
Today's post spotlights a card I made for the penguin lovers on me card giving list. The image was colored and fussy cut. The background paper is from Webster's pages. Stamps on front of card are from Darcie's Homemade Cheer set (retired).
Little different project today. This is a small wall hanging quilted project. I made two of these. One for myself and one for my buddy, Jan. She has already received hers, so this post will not spoil the surprise. LOL The quilt pattern was from a pattern book I purchased at Annie's Craft Store on line. I used heat and bond to apply the appliques and machine stitched around the appliques. I did a little bit of machine quilting.
I used Christmas prints in 100% cotton. I used a recycled light weight sweater for the tree.
Hope everyone is well and enjoying the chilly weather. I still have to edit my Christmas Card photos! For got all about doing that. I have been making some small quilts too and mailed two of those out for gifts. Got my holiday decorations up yesterday. So I am getting there. My family drew names this year for a gift exchange. We each buy one gift. I plan on doing my shopping on Monday. We had quite a bit of snow the other day, but it all melted. The evergreens still look pretty.
Today, I am posting a winter/coffee themed card. I used stamps from My Favorite Things and dies from Stampin' Up. This card is suitable for Christmas too. Moose was colored with Copics.
So glad you stopped by today. I will be back next time with a Christmas project. Have a lovely day!
Oh! The chilly weather is here! I made some cute cards to celebrate the nice chilly weather. I used stamps from My Favorite Things.
This card has a die cut window. I just used a square die cut and cut into my large background piece (the green card stock). I set aside the cut out square for some other project.
Both cards can be used as general greetings cards, or Christmas cards. I have been making some gifts for all the Nov and Dec birthdays. Just about finished with those. I have to frame some cross stitch pieces, and have a small quit project to start. So just busy busy here. I will try to remember to photograph some of the gifts, so I can share with you. See you next time. Oh, boy, I almost forgot...I haven't even photographed my Christmas cards yet. Gosh! Better get on the ball.
See you next time! Hope you day is filled with warm hugs!
I have one more Thanksgiving card to share. This is a similar design to the card I posted in October here. I used torn textured paper and dry embossing for the background on this card. The pumpkins were colored and fussy cut.
The leaves are falling and so are the temperatures. I guess it is truly Fall now. I still need to trim a bush and dig up the dahlias. But, other then that, I am pretty much done with yard work until Spring. And, with Fall comes Thanksgiving! Today, I wanted to share with you more of my Thanksgiving cards.
I have been making some Christmas ornaments lately. I really need to get started on my Christmas cards!! But, I like to fill a basket with handmade ornaments and set them out on Thanksgiving day. Everyone takes one home for decorating their trees. So, I have to get my ornaments done and then I can start on the cards. Lots to do here at the McAlpines'. It is all fun!
Check back for more Thanksgiving cards in the next post. I hope you are having a great day.
PS: I am thankful for all the beautiful stamps available for crafting. Just another one of those small things that make life great
Coffee Loving Card Makers is having a blog hop! I am definitely a coffee loving card maker!!
The stamps are from My Favorite Things "Sweater Weather in the Woods". The background dies are from Stampin Up "Home Together Dies".
The dies were cut from white card stock to create the rolling hills with trees background.
I stamped with black dye ink and colored with Copic markers. I fussy cut the animals and added them to the background.
They certainly are enjoying their pumpkin spice lattes. YUM
Time for Thanksgiving cards!! I made three different designs. I posted one earlier in October here. And, will be sharing the others through out the month of November.
I used some older stamps to make this design and added dry embossing to make the design seem more current.
Popping in to post a few more of my Halloween cards. I used the same design for all the cards, but varied the colors and papers.
See Part one here.
Here are a few more examples:
Stamps are from a Stampin Up set I bought last year. The front of the card has a smaller card attached with a scary little surprise inside!
