Hearts Aplenty!

These adorable dotted hearts are the focal point on this card.  The smaller one was turned around to add contrast. The sparkle was added using Creative Charms Gradient gem Stickers in red in the center of the hearts. DP was from Studio G

This card is a revival from one that I did several years ago.  The hearts are used to create a flower on a stamped stem and the butterflies accentuate the sentiment.  Gem stickers were added to the punched lace edge,

Winter Birthday Wishes

  For the card base I used White Bazzill card stock and edged the bottom with the MS Snowflake border punch.  The Snowflake from the Kit of the Month from Creative charms was embellished with the snowflake and stars from the Winter Seasonal Sparkles with another snowflake added to the corner of the sentiment.  The DP is from Authentique Journey collection and the solid card stock is Night of Navy and the sentiment is from Watercolor Tri stamp set both from StampinUp

Frosty the Snowman!


We all know that Frosty was a jolly, happy soul, and so he is on this card!  This stamp is from JustRite Stamps and he was colored with copics.  Used Spellbinder dies to cut out and mat the snowman.  Used the Vintage Blue Flower  buttons because they reminded me of snowflakes!

Here is a close up of Frosty and his frosty flakes.  I also love the look of the lacy snow on the card.  Just the right touch.

Oh ChristmasTrees!!

I am working on getting my Christmas cards done for this year. I still have a way to go.  Here are 2 samples of cards.  The first one uses the Green Wide Fancy Polka Dot Ribbon wrapped around triangles to build a Christmas tree.  It is decorated with Holiday Gradient Gem Stickers and Red & Green Vintage Jewels all from the Creative Charms Deal of the month.  The tree trunk is also one of the Vintage Jewels.  I like how this one turned out.

This Christmas tree was stamped on card stock and once again decorated with the Holiday Gradient Gem Stickers from the Deal of the Month at Creative Charms.  This deal is jam packed with goodies and perfect for completing all your Christmas cards!

A Gingerbread Christmas!

Who doesn't love a Gingerbread Man and a Gingerbread House?  I had so much fun making these shaped cards and what better Christmas cards to start with than Gingerbread cards?  They were both cut from SVGcuts Warm Gingerbread SVG kit and sweetly embellished with assorted Creative Charms gems!

This Gingerbread Man is showing his sweet sentiment with a banner  enhanced with Gradient Gem Stickers on the bows and also one for his sweet little red nose. Card stock used was red, white and green glitter card stock from Bazzill.   The fur for the hat and boots were cut using White Daisy CS from CTMH and embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Delicious!!

And how about this sweet little Gingerbread House.  This one is embellished with both the Gradient Gem Stickers as well as the Vintage Jewels stickers in red and green!  The white Gradient Pearl stickers on the snow on the rooftop worked perfectly.  The candy cane and gum drops are cut from glitter card stock from Bazzill and the base is cut from Brownie Co'ordinationations card stock also from Bazzill.  Makes me so ready for Christmas and all the magic that goes along with it!

Creative Charms Blog Hop & some Christmas Candy!!

Welcome to Creative Charms Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from Amy's Blog then you are on the right track.  If you didn't, go  you can start HERE at the beginning. This adorable stocking can double as both a Christmas Ornament for your tree and a gift card holder.  Just flip up the cuff on the stocking and fill it with a gift card of your choice.  Anyone would love to receive one of these Christmas stockings!  The stocking was cut with my cricut and adorned with Christmas Holly and red Vintage Jewels.  A loop of the red Velvet Ric Rac Ribbon is used to hang the stocking!

Here is is open with a card inside!  I also used an embossing folder to add dimension and texture to the stocking.  The "Berries" are popped up with dimensionals.  Super easy and fun to make.  Here is a link to the pattern to make the stocking.

I made a few of these adorable Tissue Covers for Christmas gifts last year.  I used a Winter Theme so they could be used beyond the Holidays. The snowflakes are in the Winter Medley set of the Seasonal Medley collection and layered over the punched snowflakes from blue glitter CS.

They are accented with Gradient Gem Stickers to give them more sparkle and are also added to the snowflakes on the top border.  The panels on the tissue cover are embossed using the Cuttlebug embossing folders and inked to bring out the embossing.  These were a big hit with the recipients!
