Finally some Christmas cards

Hello friends.  I'm so far behind on getting Christmas Cards made.  I was able to get crafty this afternoon and have a couple to share with you. 


Ok, that ribbon matches much better in real life.  I finally got a light box set up (made my own) and thought all my lighting / color problems would be solved, NOT!

 This first card uses Layers of Color Cling art stamp "Poinsettia Frame".  Moxie Fab's Trigger Tuesday and the CPS sketch were my main inspiration!  The only problem is, that the photo I saved is NOT this weeks Tuesday Trigger, teehee.  I'm loosin' it.  Now I'm dying to know where I got this photo from??  Anybody know??


I had to get the cuticle scissors out on this one.  I don't mind doing a little detailed cutting sometimes, because I love the results!


The last card I made using this stamp was done with copics.  Today I decided to go with watercolors.  The DP is Bo-Bunny - A gift of love (red flourishes) and Teresa Collins - Noel.  Lots of gold stickles used on this one. 

Here is a photo of the last one in case you missed it.


I have to create one more with this one soon, because I want to turn it one it's side, with the poinsettia draping down the side of the frame.
Did you know that this stamp is compatible with Labels 16??  Yep, LOC is a Spellbinders Preferred Stamp Company and has lots of great choices for Labels 14 and 16.  You can check them out HERE.

And this is a little mini card.  I designed it to play along with this weeks challenge over at the CREATE blog.  I used one of the cute little deer from "Reindeer Waltz" by Layers of Color.  The challenge was to create a mini card 3" x 3".  I used one of my Spellbinders Label Die's and mine is 2.5" x 2.75".


The DP is Bo-Bunny Gifts of Love again.  The brad SEI.  And the snowflake chipboard peice is Creative Imaginations.  Sentiment in the card above and this one are Making Memories.  You may be able to get this Christmas rub-on booklet at Hobby Lobby.  My next hoarding goal - rub-on sentiments!  I have to find more of these!
