Last two Christmas cards

Here are the other two cards I made for Christmas.

This one is made using digital papers by Crystal Wilkerson. I printed them on shimmery cardstock. The stamp is from SU and it's stamped with Brilliance Rocket Red Gold ink and punched with a punch from SU. The heart punch, ribbon, blue paper and vanilla card base are also from SU.

This one is from the Very Merry Tags cricut cartridge. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder, digital paper from Jerri Ingalls, cardstocks from SU, Bazzill and Lasting impressions, shimmery vellum, SU border punch (from an upcoming catalog) and ribbon from SU.

Fox & Friends baby card

This is made with a new set from the upcoming Occasions mini. I pretty much cased this card from Jennifer McGuire. I made it for a family member who recently had a baby girl. In real life the lion's mane matches the darker pink paper-not sure why it doesn't here. I use my old DRebel to take card pics and it's not the greatest camera anymore.

stamps: SU Fox & Friends
cardstock: SU and PTI
embossing folder: swiss dots
ink: SU
circle and scallop punch: SU
border punch: Martha Stewart

Card holders

First of all this card was NOT made by me. It was made by a lady in my upline named Gail Beezley. Isn't it cute?? It is all glittery and the embossed background is so neat. So anyway I was trying to think of a better way to display our cards. Usually I use poster tape and tape them all to my front door. Really wasteful-that poster tape is expensive. And they couldn't be rearranged if we got more cards. So the other day this idea popped into my head. I don't know if I saw it somewhere and was subliminally channeling that or what. If so and you know where I might have seen it, please let me know so I can give credit. For the card holders I took ordinary clothespins and covered them on one side with patterned paper and put a magnet on the other side. I used paper cut to about 3/8" x 2-7/8" and glued it on with Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue. Then I took these magnetic business card blanks I had leftover from another project and cut them into about 1/4" strips and stuck them to the other side of the clothespin (they are self adhesive). Clipped the card into the clothespin and stuck it to our front door. Our door is steel-this wouldn't work with a non-steel door.

Two Christmas cards-and a sketch challenge

I'm posting only two of my cards right now. The other two cards I did are going to people who read my blog-so I'll post them later.

This one is made with a digital stamp that I found here. I used the same background as the freebie but changed the color and then put the image on top and then printed it. I colored it with copic markers. I tried shading and all that but the colors looked so light (pink instead of red, for example) so I just colored it solid. The markers I used (forgot to take a picture) are C5, G07, G17, R17 and Y38. I printed the image on shimmery cardstock but you can't tell from the picture. It's shimmery though. I used some Stampin' Flock on the white parts of the hat. Cardstock and patterned paper are from Stampin' Up and the Christmas Greetings stamp is from..I think Hero Arts. Embossing folder from Cuttlebug. For this card I used Aly's sketch shown here, turned on its side. I didn't have room for the 3 dots so I left them out. I didn't want to make square cars since I don't have enough envelopes that size and shape.

the sketch:

This next one was made using a digital kit by Crystal Wilkerson. I printed the patterned papers onto some cardstock and then cut them up just as I would regular patterned paper. The tree and sentiment were printed on shimmery cardstock. I cut the tree out and glued it to the oval (which is SU vanilla cardstock). I also used nestabilities and my SU scallop border punch. Kraft cardstock is from Stampin' Up. I used stickles at the top of the tree.
