Back Home

Sorry about the lack of posts but I have been out of town. I went to CA to surprise my daughter for her birthday and as she reads my blog I couldn't say anything! While I was away Deborah asked for the link to the image that I used for Jingle All The Way  You can find it HERE Deborah!

I made my daughter's birthday card back at the beginning of the month and put it in a 'safe' safe that when I went to get it to take with me I couldn't find it! I  had taken a picture of it though. I took her another card and when I find the original I will send it to her! This is the card I can't find.

More Christmas

This is the last Christmas card for a while!

No this is not a new Nestie shape it is a mistake! The image is a digi image and I printed it to close to the edge of the paper. When I used the Nestie Label 4 to cut it out it one of the little points at the side was cut off so I just cut the other one off too! It doesn't show in the picture but I used Glossy Accents on the berries and the bobble on the hat.
For the border on the green panel I used the MS scoreboard and then cut the DP to fit between the scoring. The label is popped up with dimensional tape.

Holly and Baubles

This is another image I found by searching for Christmas coloring pages.

To get the white border around the Nestie labels 4 I taped the die to the card stock and used a craft knife to cut around the outside of the die. This layer is popped up with dimensional tape.

Jingle all the way

I  found this image by doing a search for Christmas coloring pages. The sentiment is a $1 stamp that I got at Michael's last year but didn't use. The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I used the Cuttlebug distressed stripes folder on the green panel.

Another Poinsettia

This is another card using the same digi image. This time it is larger and reversed. That is the great thing about digi images, you can have them any size you want and reverse the direction!

For this card I used the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder on the debossed side for the white panel. After printing and coloring the Poinsettia I used a Nestablilities oval die, laid it over the image and traced around the inside of the die between the petals. I then used the same die to cut a black panel. I then found that I didn't have red or green ribbon that came anywhere close to matching  the colors I had used! Looking through what I had I decided that this black ribbon with polka dots was the best I could come up with. To tie the ribbon in with the rest of the card I used a Micron pen the make polka dots around the oval. To make a black panel behind the the Nestie tag I taped the die to the paper and used a craft knife to cut around the outside of the die. to cut the holes I laid the white panel over the black panel and traced around the holes and then just cut rectangles around the mark.

Pretty simple. I used a digi image colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.

Merry Christmas Snowman

I have really been struggling to make a card these last few days. I definitely have brain freeze! Although I am not thrilled with this card I am going to show it to you anyway.

The imagee is a digi image I found on the internet colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I used the Swiss Dots folder from Cuttlebug and a Martha Stewart edge punch.

'hats all she wrote

I have been neglectful of my blog for a week or more. Bad me! Can you believe that it is September already?! I shall try to do better this month. This is a card I made for a swap. The theme is fashion.

I used the Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Elegant Ellipse folder for the panel backed with DP. The 3D hat is from a sheet in my stash. The embossing at the top and left side of the card was done with the Martha Stewart scoreboard.
