Peace & Joy

Peace & Joy — isn't that what we all wish for especially at this time of the year.  Peace & Joy
To make this card I just cut 3/4" strips of the Under the Tree designer paper to make candles.  I added the "flame" by punching Crushed Curry cardstock with the feather portion of the Bird Builder punch.  I punched out the leaves from Garden Green cardstock also using the Bird Builder punch.  Very quick & easy to make a bunch of this card.

Sparkling Snowflakes

Mingle All the Way is one of my favorite stamp sets. It's a very simple stamp set but makes wonderful cards.
The card base is Marina Mist. I added a layer of Marina Mist designer paper, then I cut out a Deco Label Framelit layer of the Silver Glitter Cardstock. I stamped the Mingle All the Way image on Whisper White cardstock with Marina Mist ink and punched it out with the 2 1/2" circle punch. I stamped two little snowflakes on the Whisper White cardstock. I added a few snowflakes and rhinestones for a little more sparkle.
I would love to see what your Christmas cards will be this year.

Nature’s Peace


Ok, it's November 1st so it's officially time to start Christmas stuff. I know most of you say not until after Thanksgiving but for me that doesn't leave enough time to get everything done if I don't start now.
For this card I stamped the Nature's Peace stamp on crumb cake card stock using Soft Suede ink. Then I sponged Soft Suede around the edges. I used a white gel pen to highlight little dots. I mounted this on Pear Pizzazz card stock.
