It’s no secret

I really love Crafty Secret stamps and images. I used some of their cotton scraps and vintage images for these cards. I love the vintage look. When I was little I used to play with all my mother’s buttons and lace so I really enjoy embellishing my cards with these items. I still like to play with buttons. I like to sort them and look at all the pretty colors…..

This pink Santa is mounted on some old lace I got at an antique store on South Georgia. 4 Yards – score!

This little girl is so sweet. See the swirls? I made those using my punch and some old Christmas cards. I am really trying to be green in my card making.

These stars were cut from old Christmas cards. All those glittery cards make great embellishments. Just use your punches and nestabilities to get cool shapes.

One last card for tonight. I punched the stars out of chipboard, painted them and then covered them with glitter. A little bling for the holidays!

Thanks for stopping by!

Where to start?

I had a large order of cards to make and they have been keeping me very busy. Of course I could mass produce cards but that isn’t me. I like for each one to be different. I did make some duplicates this time because I would have gone nuts otherwise! This is just a small shot of some of the cards. I ended up with 76 cards…..

The individual cards I am sharing today are made from an old children’s Christmas alphabet book. I liked the vintage look of these images and added flowers, brads and ribbons to dress them up.
