Christmas Tag

My Christmas cards are done so it's time to get the tags finished. I had fun creating this tag with one of the stamps from the winter kit from Magnolia Stamps.
This is my DT project for The Merry Christmas Challenge.  The theme is always anything goes but there is an optional challenge to make it sparkle.  I am not sure it shows in the picture but the pattern paper I used is sparkly and I added extreme glitter paint to the star and used my red spica pen for the garland on  Tilda's dress.  I also used shabby chic embossing enamel for some extra sparkle.
I hope you join us in the challenge.  Can't wait to see what you make.

Christmas Nutcracker

I had some fun playing with my new Magnolia stamps. I combined a couple from 2 different sets to make this card. Tilda as the nutcracker is from the stamp club kit.  I added Swan Lake Tilda from the Magnolia Day kit to make my card.  I was hoping to create a card for the Nutcracker ballet.
This is my DT card for Addicted To Stamps.  Our challenge is to created a Seasons Greetings card.  If you still have cards to make for the holidays, please join us in the challenge.

Have A Magical Crhristmas

I wanted to make a Christmas card with a non Christmas image.  I saw this Unicorn from Bugaboo Stamps and decided it could make a great Christmas card.  What do you think?
After coloring with copics, I painted the unicorn with extreme glitter paint and added stickles to the mane and tail.  The sentiment I created in Microsoft word.

This is my DT project for Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Extra challenge. The theme is always anything Christmas goes and our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.

Snowmen Melt Your Heart

I just love this sweet digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps.  The challenge at Aud sentiments is to create a project using a Christmas Sentiment.  I haven't decided yet if I will mail this as a Christmas card or use as a thank you card after the holidays.  I kept the card design simple so it can be mailed easily and a little cheaper.  I hope you join  us at Aud Sentiments in our last challenge of 2017. We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps

Christmas Ornament

I don't know about you, but I love to decorate for the holidays.  I usually put up 4-5 large trees. Last year I shocked everyone and didn't put up any of my Christmas trees. It was a very busy time of year with our Oldest son graduating from college two weeks before Christmas and our youngest son turned 21 the day before Christmas.  Needless to say I was focused on other parties and events.  I did decorate the house, just not the trees. 
 Each of my trees is decorated with a different theme.  This year I have decided to put up only one tree and make new ornaments for the tree.  I am hoping I get them done in time.  The theme for this tree will be The Nativity.  Each ornament I make will have some element from the nativity story.  This is the first ornament I have made so far.  I decided my color scheme would be white, tan, gold, blue and rose.  I found some Christmas balls at Hobby Lobby in those colors to add to my tree.
This is also my DT project for Simply Magnolia.  Our theme for this month is CAS or FULLY LOADED.  Somehow I think my card has a CAS look even though I intended it to be Fully loaded. I can't wait to see what you make for this challenge.
