I have a fun card to share with you today.
I started with one of our new Christmas designs 1054H, which normally looks like this -
Since I hadn't added any EZ Mount cushion, I trimmed it realllly close and attached it to my acrylic block like this...
then I was able to stamp it twice, so the openings were facing each other. I used markers to color the lights, then layered it on some red card stock.
I stamped my curved lights again as a background on my black paper using white pigment ink, which I colored using pencils.
To finish my card I wrapped the black layer with some red, silver and green wire I picked up at a dollar store recently and once it was all attached it was still missing something so I wrapped more wire around the small end of a paint brush and a toothpick to create my "springs" and attached them with a small red bow.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

The last day of November is usually the day I start to panic because I haven't decorated yet, bought enough presents, or made enough Christmas Cards. This year is no different - I still need to make a bunch more Christmas cards to have enough to send out. Here is one more down, and I think I will make a few more like it.
To start this card, I stamped the Cardinal on Branch image and colored it with Tim Holtz distress crayons, CTMH ink using a blender pen, water color pencils, and a white gel pen. Then I stamped the new Holly Jingle Bells image twice and fussy cut both out. I colored them with water colored pencils and distress crayons. On one of the images, I cut only the holy out and added some SU! Dazzling Details to make the berries pop. Next, I chalked the background rubbing a sponge on some chalk and then rubbing it all around my image and panel. It still needed something so I used stencils and Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I then rubbed some of the TH Walnut Stain Distress Ink all around the edges. On the sentiment banner, I used the new Holly Days Christmas Greeting rubbing on a bit of the chalk so it wouldn't look so white.
Hope you are not as late as me with your Christmas cards!

Hi Everyone. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I sure did! I have so much to be thankful for!! It really is good to stop and count your blessings every so often.
My card today features our new Christmas Light String. I used my MISTI to stamp the string of lights over and over. The MISTI keeps everything lined up beautifully. Once the lights were colored with Copics, I added some Glossy Accents to each little light. While they were drying, I stamped the Merry and Bright Greeting with Versafine Black Onyx ink and added just one little light to each side of the greeting. Some glossy accents were added to these lights. Everything is layered onto blue CS and then onto the white card base.
