Cocktails Anyone?

 Hello Everyone,

I thought that the cocktail cards fit in with the coming New Year celebration.  The sentiments have a touch of humor too.  I already sent this set of cards out.  And I really think I need to make a few more.

I used a stamp set and dies from Stampin Up.

Wishing you a Happy New Year!!  

May it be full of good things and lots of love.

Cards made From Full Sheet Stamping

 Hello Everyone,

Wanted to share this set of cards made with a full sheet of stamping.  I stamped a full sheet of white cardstock and then cut into pieces for the card fronts.

Below is a photo of all the different versions of the card.  Most are for birthdays.

This is how the cardstock looked after lots of stamping.  I have started to cut up the full sheet here.

This of a piece sized for one card front.

More pics of the card fronts:

This is a fun way to make a card by creating your own focal point paper.  Was quite fun too.  

So glad you stopped by today.

 Hello Everyone,

Finished making my Christmas cards for this year.  Only made thirteen cards this year.  I am ashamed to say I bought some ready make cards to send this year as well. Just ran out of time. But, I wanted to share the cute Santa card I did make.

Supplies used:

Stamps: Gifts from Santa - My Favorite Things (retired); Sentiment on inside Stampin' Up

Decorative papers

Die Cuts from My Favorite Things, Spellbinders, Stampin Up

Glitter Glue

Red Ribbon

Inside of all cards.

Will be sending all of the cards out as soon as possible. Not to long before Christmas will be here. Do have all my gift shopping done. Hope your Holidays are super lovely.
