Another Christmas Card

Another Christmas card I made for this year.  This card uses a retired Nativity stamp from CTMH colored using Prisma pencils and the Gamsol Magic technique.  The  card base measure 4.25 x 4.25" and used the Nestabilities scalloped circle is mounted on to measure the full card length to 5 1/2".  CS for base is Olive and Hollyhock from CTMH.  The sentiment is stamped using CTMH ink pad in Hollyhock and distressed on the edges using Brown Bag. Also used stickles on the star and the halo and the little heart on the manger. Used a brown satin ribbon for accent.

Fluffles and Snail

Created this card using my new Fluffles stamp and colored using the Gamsol Magic technique.  I layered using the Nestabilities die and dimensionals.  Paper used was the Bo Bunny - A Gift of Love from the Back to Basics collection in powder blue dot.  This is a double sided paper and I love it.  I also used the Sizzix embossing folder to emboss the dots on the white cardstock.  Added some checked ribbon I got at an unbelievable low price in the clearance bin and I love how this card turned out.

Scor Pal Pals Challenge

This card was made for a challenge from a group I belong to called Scor Pal Pals. This challenge was to create a Side Step card. You can get the directions from HERE or HERE. Depends what size you want to make it. I used the Cricut cart Paper Dolls and Dressup to make the pumpkin, spider and web and the ghost. Used the MS fence punch for the fence on the bottom. I used Icicle stickles to give the web it's bling and used Peachy Keen New Arrival stamps for the faces. This was a fun card to make and I am happy with how it turned out.

Ribbons and Bows Challenge

Here is my take on the Ribbons and Bows challenge on Just Magnolia Challenge Blog. This "bow" was made by simply tying a knot in the ribbon and attaching to my card. Gives it a different kind of look. I also tied little ribbons in her hair and in the buttons. Added little pearls for the snaps on the overhauls. I used sitting Spring Tilda for this card and it measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.
