Couple Christmas cards

Made these with a class, I tweaked the snowflake card to my design.

After punching the two snowflakes, you can take the postive snowflake punched piece and put it in the middle of the two on the frontfor a layered effect. I took the other snowflake and glued it to the inside (not shown). All products are from SU.

Butterfly Birthday wish card

Created this card for my daughter's friend. I used the Martha Stewart border and corner punch (hint cut the paper at 3 1/4"). Added vintage music paper (2x2) and rounder the corners.

Sentiments from Studio G stamps, the base embossing is a SU folder by Sizzix.
The butterflies is also an embosslet from SU/Sizzix.

Entry as guest designer

As my last week as guest designer at CRAFT Challenge Blog - I chose this adorable image from The Stamping Boutique Store for the unusual Christmas challenge who is the sponsor this week.

I decided that the image would be great for to and from gift tags.

I printed them twice - once on blue cardstock and then again on white.
I added glitter to the "snow" bulb and for the cute penguin which I printed again on white - cut him out, colored and raised on foam squares.

game piece necklaces

My friend sent me these game pieces and also drilled the hole for me, this is some more of what I will be selling in a couple weeks at a craft fair!
Inked the back ground, rubber stamped the swirl leaf image added bling and covered in a glaze. The piece is hung from a jump ring and I added a braided cord with a slider closer.
Here is a short video where I explain the process.


Wooden Spool Ornaments

I bought the Better Homes & Garden Craft magazine and these ornaments and how to make them were in there.
I couldn't wait to give it a try, all I needed to buy was the thick black wire and I made 14 of these for ornaments. The music on them are Christmas songs that I strategically cut and glued on.

Hope you give it a try! Please enjoy this short video.

Here is a card I made using a digi from Bugaboo Digi Stamps who is the sponsor this week.

I cut the star card from my Coluzzle and colored lightly with my markers. Added glitter details to the stars, halo and wings. Added two star brads to finish it off.
