Three Down Four to Go!!

Well, I just finished my 3rd set of 10 cards!! They're all pretty simple and took me a few hours to complete all of them.

This card uses Stampin' Up!'s new set Merry & Bright from the Holiday Mini. I used the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder for the background. I cut the smaller ovals using Sizzlets dies, the scalloped oval is the Mega Marvy punch. The snowman is watercolored using Twinkling H2O's. Paper colors include Tempting Turquoise and Orchid Opulence. Ribbons are from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts: Polka Dot Organdy in White with White Dots & May Arts Silver Cord.

This card is made from a set of premade embossed cards and envelopes. The card had a blank square in the center of an embossed grid. I sponged Bashful Blue ink around the outside of the square. I stamped the snowflake (Stampin' Up! The Snowflake Spot) in Night of Navy craft and embossed with Navy embossing powder. I used the following ribbons from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts: 1/4" Navy Organdy, May Arts Silver Cord, and Light Blue Gingham.

This card also uses the Cuttlebug Snowflake folder. The large circle is a Sizzlets die, the scalloped circle and snowflaker are Cuttlebug dies. The oval is a Stampin' Up! punch. I stamped "sparkle" (Stampin' Up! Warm Words) using Brilliant Blue craft ink and embossed using Hologram Highlights embossing powder. Ribbons used are from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts and include satin edge organdy with metallic stripe and May Arts gold cord.

7 Cards in 7 Days!!

I have been so busy the last few months with the move and building the business website, packing and shipping orders. I realized a few days ago.....ack.....we are nearly in December and I still have only about 20 Christmas cards made.

I am therefore issuing myself a challenge! I will complete 10 each of 7 designs, for a total 0f 70 cards, which will give me enough Christmas cards for this year. Keep an eye out here and I will post a photo of each card as I complete 10 of them. Hopefully I can complete it in less than 10 days!

OK, I'm off to stamp!
