Let it Snow

I know many of you have been snowed in and may be suffering from the cold…but here in the south we are dreaming of a white Christmas – as if that would ever happen. I do remember one Christmas it snowed and that was at least 40 years ago! I am surprised I can remember that far back. Oh well, wishing never hurt anyone and maybe it will snow. This has been the year of glittery, snow covered cards. There is glitter all over my house. I even wake up with glitter on my face. Here are a few snowy cards with lots of glitter, shimmerz, or stickles.

Taking a break from Christmas (cards that is)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Mine stared with Winter Festival last night. The students had a great time making holiday crafts and eating goodies. Then off to breakfast with Santa this morning. Tonight we are meeting family for an annual Christmas dinner. Too much food involved here but during the week I will try to cut back. Taking a break from Christmas cards with this one. Remember I said I was going to use my stash before I buy any more paper???? I am really trying to meet that goal. This paper has to be at least 4 years old. I liked it then and I like it now. I just hope it isn’t too “dated.”  Thanks for stopping by today.

Oh, in real life the flower is not that orange 🙂

 

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.
