12 Days of Christmas - Day 5

Here's another variation of the card I posted yesterday. This one has a rustic whimsical feel to it, plus, I just love that pic of Santa with his reindeer (I wonder where the other 6 wandered off to)
The Merry Christmas words were cut on the Silhouette then embossed with Red sparkle embossing powder. I am giving this card to my lovely neighbor. Her house is done in a farmhouse decor. I think it will match perfectly. Thanks for taking a look - see you soon.

12 Days of Christmas - Day 4


I am loving the way this card turned out. I was shopping on the Silhouette Design Store and saw the door card cut file. 
I wanted to give the illusion of opening the beautiful wooden front doors and looking out into a winter wonderland. I printed a picture that I found on Pinterest here. (side note: I tried to find the original source of the photo, but it just led me to error pages. All I know is that it was from "Gant" Christmas)

My tried and true Martha Stewart punch created the wreaths on the front doors.
Can you see the jingle bell door knobs? Cute little detail.

Thanks for looking, see you tomorrow.

12 Days of Christmas -Day 3

"Seas & Greetings"
I wanted to do some fun tropical Christmas cards this year.  If you know me, I love doing the tropical artwork.
I designed the card on my Silhouette Studio software, using number of different cut files then pieced them all together. The finished card measures 6x6"
The flamingo stamp was something I bought a couple of weeks ago. It's a poly clear layering stamp from hero arts, you can see the set here
See you tomorrow for my 12 days of Christmas posts. Stay warm my friends.

12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

Believe in the magic of Christmas...
this card was actually pretty simple to put together. The photo was printed off and matted on 2 different colors of glitter card stock. The believe die (Heidi Swapp) was cut twice with the same glitter card stock

Disney and Christmas - 2 of my very favorite things.

12 Days of Christmas - Day 1

I am going to try and do my yearly 12 days of Christmas posts. I have been busy crafting and trashing my art space for a few weeks now, all while working night shifts since August. I feel very detached from the land of the living. thank goodness my fur babies have been so good letting me sleep during the day.
The first day of Christmas Posts features motorcycle Santa. He's all cool with dark shades and leather. 
This was a cut file from the Silhouette Design store. I added some layers and glitter/flock accents.
I love Wink of Stella glitter pens. I have just about every color. They enhance the color but add a little sparkle to your card.
Santa needed something extra, so I added a merry Christmas cut file intertwined on the motorcycle.
It turned out pretty cute, I think

12 Tags of 2016 Remix - November

November people! Where is the time going?  I am in full steam ahead Christmas mode around here, but I am sharing my 8x8 layout for the 12 tags of 2016. You can find the links and technique info over on Tim Holtz' blog here.
Thanks for taking the time to look...see you soon!




I added a strip of Scor tape along the side and bottom. It gave the cork letters something to stick to and then I poured distress glitter over the exposed adhesive.
