Early Valentines!!

Hello Everyone - It is that time again for Ann's challenge and this time she has chosen Valentines!! What a great choice so we can start thinking about what we want to do. For mine I used the new set coming out called Love you much. The hearts in the corner are with the new heart punch and my papers are real red, pretty in pink, and close to cocoa along with the new candy lane DSP. I was not sure if I liked this new DSP much or not but I do love the way it turned out on this particular card. I also used the real red grosgrain ribbon. Be sure to check out Ann's challenges and join in the fun.

Sleigh ride

This is my Christmas card for this year to everyone. I made 100 of these and might have to still make a few more. I borrowed the idea from a card that I recieved but i also changed it some to make it mine. I used Sleigh Bells Ring stamp set, night of navy and whisper white cardstock, night of navy ink. On the holly I used my copics markers. I added dazzling diamonds where the snow would be but that is hard to see on this picture. The card itself didn't take long to make, the longest part was coloring and cutting the holly which is up on a dimensional.

Snowman has a gift!!

My snowman has a gift inside - he is holding a gift card that you can't see. He is my item for Ann's challenge this week - a gift giving item!! She gave a great tutorial on how to make this holder, be sure to check it out and make one too - join in on the fun. I used baja breeze, choc. chip, whisper white, basic black, riding hood red, tangerine tango, and ski slope DSP papers - I punched out my snowman with circle, square, word window, and a tree punches - I used a dimensional on my do not open until december 25 - My snowman has glitter on him however this picture does not do it justice, for the glitter I used my atyou spica copic marker - they are great. I used several rub-ons for the snow on top and the saying from Season of Cheer set. Velcro holds this guy together at the top, the soft sky double stitch ribbon is for decortaion only, not the fastner. On the inside is a legal evelope folded in half and cut open at each end - to see a picture of the inside check out Ann's blog as I forgot the picture of my inside.
