Winter Penguin Window Greeting Cards

Posted by Amanda at Saturday, January 14, 2017 0 comments
I love the window cards that I see every where and I love shaker cards so I combined the two in this card. I challenged myself to make several cards with these penguin stickers that I got at Hobby Lobby. I wanted to do something simple, and I don't have any of those special window dies so I decided to use what I had on hand. During the process of making this card I realized I had no acetate for the windows so I did as I have done before and used Project Life Photo Pockets - I get them at Walmart.I love the texture of the cut out cross stitched square left from the windows so I used distress ink to color them and used them as the background for the window; I decided I needed a little more color, but didn't have any blue card stock so with the help of the wonderful card makers out there on Youtube I just used my Tim Holtz ink and did a border of color to matched, added Cartwright sequins, and some beads from my stash. I stamped the "Merry Christmas" with Versafine onyx black and that's it! To finish it off, I added a penguin inside.

Christmas Elves Holiday Greeting Card

Happy Saturday!

I love these elves! They are Buddy and Jolly from Stamping Bella. These were colored with pencils and I added some glitter paper with some Christmas card stock from my stash. They came together pretty fast so I made a few of them. I think they are just so cute!

Gingerbread House Holiday Card

Posted by Amanda at Sunday, January 01, 2017 0 comments
Happy Holidays! I have 3 holiday cards lined up to help carry over some Christmas cheer into January.

For this card, I got the Lawn Fawn Sweet Holiday stamps and dies last Christmas but never had a chance to use them. It was pretty simple to make! I used the Lawn Fawn stitched hills, some Kraft card stock for the house and gingerbread, and white card stock for the candy. I colored the candy with pencils and added some glossy accents. Then I backed it with some pink Christmas paper and, as usual, added strips of the left over paper to finish off the inside.
