Winter is for the birds

hey there Crafty friends, I have a Christmas in July card for you today.   What a fun simple card to make.   I should do several of these for my Christmas card list.
The light blue embossed mat is cut from Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes.  That gorgeous snowflake swirl embossing folder is from Darice.  The cute little bird stamp and sentiment on the front are from Peachy Keen stamps.  I used my spectrum noir pens to color the little birdie.   I also stamped a little Holly leaves and cut out...  to layer onto the Birdies head,  I added some red beads in a bottle for the berries. 
The white stitched oval  for the sentiment is a diecut,  I then ran it through my SNC2 to make the lavender shadow layer for it, I popped it up on foam tape.  The tiny stars are from the banner.  I used the same small snowflake die three times cut from white card stock and then three times cut from white vellum.   I sponged the vellum snowflakes with a lavender pigment Ink.   After layering them up I placed a lavender dew drop in the center of each. I placed some white pearl bows (China) at the ends of the banner.
For the inside I used several different stamp sets.  Both of the sentiment stamps are from Desert Craftin Divas - Chill Out Stamp set.   I found this sentiment to work perfect with the front of the card.   I found several different snowflake stamps in my stash and used the different colors of inks to bring the inside all together.   I love the snowflake swirl I stamped first in lavender from Inkadinkado Christmas In New York Stamp Set.   The inside stitched Mat is again the same one from the front which is from Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes.

Sugar Plum Christmas block box card

 Hello crafty friends, it's been along time since I've posted here.   This morning I cleaned up my craft island and got busy on a Christmas in July card.   I had so much fun decorating this awesome card style.   The fun Card file is from  I used hot off the press sugar plum foil artful card kit  for the beautiful papers and a lot of the decorations and die cuts.  
I used My SNC2 to cut a back shadow layer in purple for the tree and label die cuts.  The merry Christmas stamp on the front is from  HOTP small stamps poinsettia,  I stamped with stazOn black ink because the tag had a slick surface.
On the tops I added the cute coordinating buttons from the kit that I tied a purple ribbon thru each before attaching each one to a stitched circle die cut I cut again from the metal tape.  The die is from Simon Says Stamp, Bundle of Stitched Shapes die set. 

The adorable stockings are made with a HOTP die set called 9 tiny Christmas things + shadows, but I didn't use the shadow on these.   I added some  metallic silver flat back pearls at the top of each stocking.  The gorgeous Poinsettia is from the same die cut set, this time I did cut the shadow in purple and I cut the top layer out of metal tape I got from hubbies garage.   On these I added a larger  metallic purple flat back pearl to the center of each.  The "sugarplum" sentiment on the back of the card is a premade printed tag from the kit.  I added a purple layer with my SNC2.  Behind that I cut 2 X-Stitched Banners from my undbranded Die set and adhered them together with the flag tails sticking out on either end.  
On the bottom I placed my adorable sentiment stamp "May your holidays sparkle and shine " from Cardz TV "Merry Everything" Stamp set.,  stamped in memento tuxedo black Ink.   I thought this was the perfect sentiment to go with all of the pretty  and shiny silver foil accents all over this card.  I wish you could see all of the gorgeous silver foil accents better.  I love that this card folds flat for mailing.

Spooky pumpkin Halloween card

hello,  today I went with another sketch from Mary at cardz TV.   I decided to keep it fairly simple today and used up some of my scraps.
The awesome crow/bat frame and the spooky pumpkin are both from Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge. I popped the pumpkin up on foam tape and added some purple gems to the frame.  The boo stamp is an old one from my stash of scrapbooking sentiment stamps and from OTC.   I used my stitched label for my stamping but I used the long straight stitched die (Simon says stamp – bundle of stitched shapes) to cut the end of the tag off so it still has stitching all the way around.

Gingerbread pop-up card

I had so much fun working with Cheryl's files over at again last week.  I think this one was my favorite of this card collaboration.   It was definitely a lot of detail work and took quite a bit of time to make but I am quite happy with the outcome.

 For the front you just have this adorable gingerbread girl .... Love her!  I have of course leaned towards the non traditional colors as I normally do.  I had to dress her up in pink and give her light pink frosting hair!  Right? Lol. The face stamp is from Peachy Keen.   I used my white gel pen on her eyes some pink puffy paint for her nose and pink chalk for her cheeks.   The embossing on her dress is from the Cuttlebug simply charmed folder set.  The background paper is from the paper crate - snow days stack. The Merry Christmas stamp is from whimsical Christmas... I colored in with a pink spectrum Noir marker.    The teeny tiny gingerbread men were buttons from my stash that I removed the back hole or loop with my wire cutters. I went over sentiment stamp and pink frosting hair and foot  frosting squiggles with my wink of Stella clear glitter pen.   I wish you could see all the sparkle and shimmer... maybe I need to take a better close-up picture for you.

Isn't the inside pop-up just too darn cute?   I again used my Cuttlebug simply charmed embossing folder for the house and the little door mat.  Instead of doing the white snow dripping off of the roof chimney and hedges I decided to make it dripping pink frosting to stay with the theme from the front of my card.   I did add some clear dimensional paint over the pink frosting and added a clear fine glitter to it.   I also added that to the pink and purple brick walkway. The brown squares paper on each end is from the same paper pack as the front .... but the glitter polkadot pink and white paper is a scrap from my stash.   I used my Martha Stewart punch for the pink Loopy border along with my Victorian cut from my paper trimmer to add the cute pink borders on my card inside.   I then stamped a cute gingerbread man several times (6) on Brown paper which I cut out with my SNC2.  I used my white gel pen for his frosting and the dots on his tie. A pink gel pen for the little hearts on his mouth.  I used alternating colors of pink puffy paint for the buttons.   In between the gingers I added some more rhinestone bling from my stash.  Oh and a small pink rhinestone for the door knob. And one last addition I added a cute heart shaped wreath on the door that I stamped from a cute vintage stamp set in my stash which I colored in with my spectrum noir pens.
