Believe

I was playing with the stamp set that came with the "Believe Workshop on the Go" by CTMH.
I was inspired by a card that I saw on "the queens scene" blog.

Christmas Love

Every year, it never fails, Bill lets me know that I need to make more cards. Somebody new just sent us a card and we must reciprocate.  My job is to make them and his is to send them. And, every year I am exhausted from making them and my craft rooms remains a mess. I am sure you know the feeling. Tonight when I was informed that I need more cards, lots more, I whipped out these cards in no time flat. I used one of my favorite stamps from CTMH called "Christmas Love" and the "Believe" paper pack. To add a little whimsy, I attached little bells, that I picked up at the craft store, with bakers twine. To give my cards a little sparkle I added Glitz Silver Glitter Gel around the banner and Candy Cane Stickles to the holly berries. I hope you are having fun with your cards.

Three of my favorite cards

I have been busy making Christmas cards and before I send these ones off, I thought that I has better take a picture. These are 3 of my favorites. The stamps are from LaLa Land Crafts. I have had so much fun coloring these images. There is so much time that goes into coloring and making a card, that it becomes more than just a card but a gift. I love making homemade cards. It brings me so much joy.

Glory To God

I have been working on my Christmas Cards over the past few weeks and one of my challenges has been with this stamp set from Close to My Heart called "Glory to God." I love this set and have been trying to come up with a way of really making it stand. Finally, after much thought I am happy with the result. I used my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out the ornament. I stamped the wise men and city with pigment ink and embossed them with gold embossing powder. The paper that I used is called "Sonoma," also from CTMH.
