Last of Christmas Cards!

Just posting a few of the Christmas cards I made. Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I just had a few more cards that I made this past week, as well as some thank you cards I wanted to post. Not done for any challenges, but I sure had fun making them.

This first one is made with a Close to My Heart stamp set-'Snow Days". Sure do like these stamps. I stamped the house with memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers and cut it out. I then stamped the bridge twice on white cardstock & colored with copics. I stamped snowflakes on the sky with Versamark and SU Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I then smudged on some TH Weatherd wood for a winter sky. I added stickles to the snow and popped the house image up with SU dimensional foam dots. I then mounted the panel on a red card base.

For this card I used a stamp set I've had awhile, not sure the name of it. It's colored with Copics, added stickles for the star and decorations. Cut out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals, added a red background cut wiht Spellbinders big Scalloped ovals. The Paper is from a K & Co. Christmas mat pad, Red cardstock is Bazzil. The border is cut with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Accents, and I added some Stampendous Hallographic dots and dashes stikers to it. Snowflake is cut with SU Northern Frost strip die from red and shiny gold paper. Sentiment is gold stickers.

This is a very simple card made with white cardstock which I stamped the thank you on, then ran through the cuttlebug with a Sizzix snowflake embossing folder. The focal is a Penny Black stiker mounted first on a scrap of green, cut out around the sticker, and then mounted that on a red scrap, and I distressed the edges of the red panel. The snowflake is cut with SU Northern Frost strip die from green scrap and added a white glitter dome on top.

This one I made with a Darcie stamp set, Snowman Wishes (I have had the set for a couple of years and never used it. I have no idea where I even got it). I stamped it twice (mainly because when I went to color it the first time, I messed it up). Stamped with Momento TB, colored with Copics. The hat is a seperate stamp, so when I colored that and cut it out and put it on, I decided it needed some of the other pieces like that, too. So I colored the bird and mug from the piece I messed up, cut them out and mounted them with pop-up dots. The mug a coated with versamark and clear embossed it. I added stickles to the snow and snowflakes. On the card base I stamped the HNY from the set with Versa Magic Turquoise Gem ink, and then ran the front through the cuttlebug with a snowflake embossing folder. Turned out so cute!

This one is made with the a Holly embossing folder which I then added chalk to the raised leaves and berries. The ornament & sentiment is a Justrite stamp colored with copics, embossed with clear powder, and hand cut out. I added a rhinestone to the center. The tags are cut with my Cricut-yeah, I used my cricut-gotta make more use of that thing! The snowflakes are again using the SU snowflake die-love those snowflakes. I added a border of gold cut wiht a border punch. Green DP is K & Co.

This was a very simple card-just looks like a lot of work-teehee! The paper is from a DCWV winter stack that I got at Micheals last year. The focal is cut from one of the pieces of that paper, mounted on salmony pink Bazzil cardstock. the tag is made with SU small & Large tag punch.  The sentiment is from a HOTP mixed messages set stamped with Memento Lady bug. Border is a scrap I had in my stack. I added stickles to the snowflakes, mounted the tag with a brad, added a star to the middle tree. Mounted on a piece of the pink cardstock and added to a white card base. It's soo pretty for being so simple to make.

Now I'm off to clean my crafting space-looks like a cyclone went through there-and I'm not kidding. Needs serious re-organizing. Which is just not my thing.
Hope you enjoy my creations. Hopefully in the new year I will post more often, and not all at one time. Ta ta for now!
