Christmas Gifts...

Good morning on this last day of 2012!  Wow has this year flown by!  I'm sure most of you feel the same way too.  Well today's cards are actually gifts that I made for my family for Christmas.  I made six packs of four cards each with a variety of different sayings...and everyone a different color except I made two sets with Island Indigo.  I actually enjoyed making these cards too.  Sometimes when I'm stressed and need to get cards done I don't have any fun at all, but I really enjoyed making these this year. :)  


No boxes this time though.  I quickly packaged them up in Stampin' Up! 6 x 8 cellophane bags so they could choose the color of cards they wanted.  I sure wish the pictures turned out better because they were SO much prettier in person, but I was in a hurry to take pics they didn't turn out the greatest.


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Snowflake Soiree Christmas

Well I've been taking a break from blogging this Christmas season, but that doesn't mean I wasn't still busy working on things.  This is one of the cards I made when my dad came to me a week or so before Christmas and asked if I would make a card for my mom, and I said I'd be glad to.  I actually didn't procrastinate too much on this one either...amazing!  Since her favorite color is blue I decided to use a few different colors of blue and blend (sponge) them together using the emboss resist technique.  I've already done a couple of cards with this technique lately, but really liked a card my stamping friend Christi made and wanted to add some "swirls" in with a darker blue like she did.  I love how it turned out!    



I'm also entering it into the Friday Mashup challenge #90.  This week's theme is "Snowflakes" and/or colors Whisper White, Pool Party, Midnight Muse and Basic Black.  Super close on the colors for making the card over a week ago!  



Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Celebrate!

It's Sunday so that means it's time for another Red Hot Stampers sketch challenge card.  It's been a while since I've made a masculine card so I decided to make a simple one using something from the Sale-A-Bration brochure which can be earned starting January 22. :)  Plus I just needed a break from all the Christmas cards I've been making!  Remember to head over to the Red Hot Stampers' blog here to see what  other cards were made using this sketch.

Merry!

I'm finally back to posting another card.  Let's just say I can't wait until I open my present at Christmas...my own hand selected laptop!  Yeah!!!  I'm hoping that will make my whole downloading pics process easier. :)  Plus no more stealing the other laptop when someone else is on it, and hopefully no more troubles downloading the pics from my memory card!  
I made today's card for a couple of reasons...  I needed a card to give to my upline for helping me out of a jam again and again (I know it doesn't say thank you, but that's what we demos do).  Plus I wanted to enter another sketch challenge, so I used Saturday Sketch challenge 9 over at Stamping and Blogging.  By the way I think I'm a little hooked on these colors.  I love how they look together!

Emboss Resist Snowflake Soiree

Today's card is one of my December stamp a stack cards.  I love the three blues combined using the emboss resist technique.  It's kind of hard to see in the pic, but I also spritzed it with shimmer paint.  A lot of my cards have the sparkle of shimmer paint spritzed on them.  :)  It's kind of funny because when it comes to clothes I'm very low key, but my cards are another story...make 'em sparkle! lol

RHSSC - Gift Tag Card

It's Sunday again so you know what that means...time for another card for the Red Hot Stampers' sketch challenge.  Yes, I'm using pretty much the same colors again for the third post in a row.  That's because I decided to use scraps and leftovers again which means my mess hadn't been cleaned up for a couple of days.  Very unusual because I'm pretty much a neat freak when it comes to my stamping.  Yup, I make a project, clean it up, make another project, clean it up...I think you get the picture. :)

We have something special going on in December... If you play along every week in December you'll receive a bonus gift!  

Here are the details:
- Use our sketch to create your card or scrapbook page.
- Post your take on our sketch on our blog here using the Mr. Linky.
- Post our sketch and your take on our sketch on your blog or a gallery with a link to our blog.
- Sketches must be uploaded by Saturday, December 15.

Red Hot Christmas Party

Well it's been one of those weeks for me...stressful!  I'm sure no one else has ever had a week like that. lol  As I'm writing this I can feel myself starting to relax a little because I know my busy week is almost done.  Whew...I survived!  I've enjoyed each thing I've done, but I think I need to slow down just a little.  Now on to today's cards.  Last night was our Red Hots' Christmas party and it's always a lot of fun!  We had great food, lots of laughs, games and of course gifts.  And this year we decided on a $5 gift exchange for our gifts.  All I can say is I am not a shopper so I decided to give a box of chocolates and make a few cards.  My last post shows a card that I made using gold snowflakes.  Well after cutting out the large snowflakes I could not throw away my scraps like I usually do because the glimmer paper is so pretty and I felt wasteful if I did.  So I set them aside then starting thinking that maybe I could use them somehow on a few cards for my gift and these are the cards I came up with...


I also decided to enter these into the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge since it's a monochromatic challenge and these seem perfect for it.  Plus I've been lacking in the challenge department this week!  



Of course I had to have a box to store them in too. :)

Celebrate Today

Today's card is for one of my December stamp a stacks.  Notice it doesn't say Merry Christmas or Season's Greetings, etc.  Some of the ladies just want winter cards that can still be used for birthdays, thanks yous or a thinking of you type of card.  I made one for a birthday and another for a thank you.

RHSSC 65

It's Sunday so that means it's time for another Red Hot Stampers sketch challenge card.  I really liked today's sketch because it was pretty simple and perfect for a Christmas stamp a stack card. :)  I was a little lazy and did the spotlighting technique.  Yup, I didn't want to color in the whole picture. lol  It's kind of hard to see the circle in my first picture, so I took a close up too.  **So I totally forgot to give you the link to the Red Hot Stampers Blog to check out the other cards when I first posted this.  Not only should you check out the other cards, but read the post too since we have a special gift for anyone who participates in the month of December.  Click here for all the details!**



There that's a little easier to see. :)
