A Warm Hello Card

Pink cardstock from Stampin' Up. This is an old trick from Splitcoast---using a tag punch you punch out scrap paper and make a flower---I sponged the edges of my tags so it has dimension for the petals. The greeting "A Warm Hello" is from a set of greeting stamps from Hero Arts. Used black ink from Stampin' Up for the greeting. The stem to the flower is from green scraps---made the leaves to the flower by using a heart punch and cut the heart in half. The print pink papers are from my stash. Used pop dots behind the flower for dimension.

White Wreath Christmas Card

Red cardstock is from Hobby Lobby and the white is from Walmart. Used the branch punch from Martha Stewart for the branches--made them from white paper and the white glittered paper from Hobby Lobby. Used two hole punchers for the foil dots on the wreath. Used the Stampin' Up Petals A Plenty for the embossed red piece behind the wreath. Ribbon is from my stash. The greeting "Merry Christmas" is a dollar stamp from Michaels. I used StazOn Blaze Red ink for that. Used pop dots behind the wreath for dimension. ***Hard to see the glitter branches in the picture but the wreath does have sparkle.

Noel Christmas Card

This card is on white cardstock from Walmart. Solid green paper and the stripe paper are from Hobby Lobby. Greeting is from Inkadinkado and I used SU red ink on that. Used an oval Fiskars punch for the green piece behind that. Silver beads on the red bow are from Hobby Lobby. Just got this set from Joanns for 75% off this morning. It is the Sizzix Winter Set #3. I used the small embossing folder for the "Noel" and then used a circle punch to punch that out. Used the green Pearlescent paper from Joanns for that. The bow is a punch from Martha Stewart. Ribbon is from my stash. ***When I embossed the white cardstock in the larger folder from this set and since I have found that Sizzix folders emboss deeply, I always use two layers of paper when I use their folders so the paper will not tear on the embossed parts. Used pop dots behind the "Noel" circle and the greeting for dimension.

Thanksgiving Greetings Card

One of the faster cards to make---this is on brown cardstock from Stampin' Up and I used beige paper from Hobby Lobby.

Then stamped the greeting at the bottom which is a stamp from the Grateful Greetings stamp set from SU and also used the Close to Cocoa ink for that. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. Used pop dots behind the tree label for dimension. **This card was published in the September release of "Just Cards-Holidays" 2011**

Thanksgiving Turkey Card

This card is on Kraft paper from Paper Trey Ink. The turkey is a used Sizzix die I got on Ebay and I used papers from the pad of Debbie Mumm paper I had gotten a couple of years ago from Joanns. The rust papers on the card are from Stampin' Up and the brown paper is from Hobby Lobby. The paper to the left with the words on it is from Hobby Lobby also. Used ribbon from my stash and I used a square hole punch to nip the folded edge of the card for the ribbon to go through. I used brads from my stash for the greeting and the greeting is stamped with Basic Brown ink from SU. This is an easy turkey to assemble but it is alot of paper piecing and cutting. Pop dots were used behind the turkey and the greeting for dimension.

Shimmery Santa Card

Used Kraft paper from Papter Trey Ink for the card and the red cardstock is from Stampin' Up. Used the plaid and holly/berries paper from Joanns. The Santa is a clear stamp from this year's holiday collection at Michaels. Stamped him with the Dove Gray ink from StazOn and then used a gel pen from Sakura over that. I used red crystals for the berries on his hat and colored in the holly leaves with a green marker. Did not have "bling" to match this card so I used two different sized circle punches and I used red foil paper for the red circles. I used the "Merry Christmas" stamp from Hero Arts and I used the Blaze Red ink from StazOn for that. Using the Word Window punch from SU I punched that out and then used the SU Modern Label punch for the red paper behind it. Used silver beads from Hobby Lobby.

Delightful Decorations in Green

This card is inspired by   kwernerdesign.com  and I used the SU Delightful Decorations punch and the stamp is from the Tags til Christmas set from them. I did not have the right color of green so I stamped the stamp using ColorBox Evergreen ink and then I put clear embossing powder on that and heat set it. I used clear crystals from Hobby Lobby. The red cardstock is from SU and the green holly print and stripe and solid are from Joanns. Used a circle punch and a small circle punch for all the small scallops on the edge. The ribbon is from the ribbon jar. Used pop dots behind the ornament for dimension and also behind the circle.

Delightful Decorations Swirled

This card is inspired by Glenda Calkins and her "Inlaid Ornaments" on Splitcoast. I used red cardstock from Hobby Lobby and the printed paper is from a holiday pad of paper from DCWV at Joanns. The white paper is from Walmart. Used the Divine Swirl embossing folder from Cuttlebug for the white**. The ornament is from the Delightful Decorations stamps and punch from Stampin' Up. Used Red Riding Hood ink from SU for the ornament and the greeting. Used the Modern Label punch from SU for the red foil behind the greeting and the Word Window punch for the greeting from SU. The silver beads are from Hobby Lobby and the red ribbon is from my stash jar. Very easy and elegant---quick card. Pop dots were used behind the greeting. **Ink your ornament stamp and stamp that onto a piece of white cardstock. Punch that out and adhere that to the bigger piece of white cardstock to be put into the embossing folder. Run that through the Cuttlebug and the ornament looks like it is part of that piece. Add a bead and ribbon once it is embossed and done!
