Holidays are Upon Us

Good morning crafters, I hope that everyone had a great weekend.  I know it has been a while since I posted but the holidays are a busy time and I just got out of the habit of blogging.

 Here is a peek at a couple of Christmas cards that I created a couple of weeks back:

cutesie 2I really love the Pure Innocence stamps.  They are probably my favorite stamp line.  I opted for some bright and fun colors for these cards.  I colored the images with colored pencils and Gamsol. The card on the right I fussy cut out the image and added it to a circle and scallop circle.  I added some tiny punched out Christmas trees behind the little girl as background.  I used the Martha Stewart Punch anywhere snowflake punch to create the background.  I finished off that card with a poinsettia and some iridescent ribbon and a flat back pearl for the center of the flower.

The second card is much simpler but just as cute.  I colored the image with pencils again and punch them out in a circle and backed it with a scallop circle.  I added some of the coordinating patterned paper and a sentiment for the front of the card.

I always have fun creating these cards as I love these images.

The Cutting Garden always has a great selection of this stamp line.

Thanks for peeking in!!!!
