Happy Thanksgiving

Taking a short break from Christmas cards to make a card for Thanksgiving. The new challenge at Scrapbooker PhD is to create a fall project with a die cut and a stamp.
 This little guy is adorable as a turkey.  I always struggle to make pretty bows and I finally had an aha moment one day when I was putting a new bow in my puppy's hair for her top knot...duh why not make the bows for my cards the same way?  So much easier and less frustrating for me.  If you want to know my secret, you can watch this VIDEO.  You can use a small rubber band but I use the tiny clear bands that I use for Isabella's top knots.  I get them HERE.  The clear bands don't show and are tiny enough that it is easy to tuck behind the bow.

Naughty or Nice?

When I saw this image at Sassy Cheryl's, I just knew she would be perfect for several people on my Christmas card list.  I think most of us can relate...there is always that one person whose halo is just a little off center.  Hahaha.  Not mine...heehee!

Christmas Card

Another Christmas card done!  I am afraid to count to see how many more I need but I know it's over 20.  The stamp I used for this card is from the Magnolia fall stamp club.  Tilda looks so cute holding the lamb.  I think this stamp will work for Easter projects too.  I pulled out an old Mojo Monday sketch for this card.  Love how the sketch is simple yet it's a great design.  I chose to not add very many embellishments not only to make it easier to mail but because I wanted the stamp to be the main focal point.

Deck The Halls

Today starts another challenge at Aud Sentiments.  The theme is Anything Goes.  You can make anything you want as long as you include a sentiment.  We are sponsored by Lacy Sunshine Stamps.   
Since this is another card I will need to mail, I kept the embellishments flat and stuck with die cuts.  I did add some white embossing enamel  and some gold stickles to dress them up though.

Today's card is a simple Christmas card made using one of my favorite Magnolia stamps.  Love this little angel.  After coloring her with copics, I added gold stickles to her halo, wings, star and dress trim.  I did not add any extra bulky embellishments to this card so that it is easier to mail.  I plan to keep the post office in business with all of my Christmas cards this year but I certainly need to keep the cost down a bit. Thus, most of the cards I will need to mail this year will be flat and just have die cuts for embellishments.

Here is another card I made today.  I did manage to finish about 5 cards but I will be sharing them later in the week.  I colored up this cute stamp and was pleasantly surprised to find pattern paper in my Christmas stash that matched her sweater.  yeah me!
I added stickles to her wings, fun flock to her ear muffs and my snow writer for the snow on the branch.
