My Christmas Cards

I have had these done for a few weeks. I will be making a lot of Christmas presents that are card sets so I wanted to get these out of the way. I love this Anna Griffin paper. Mid century modern. I want a pink Christmas tree! I lined all the envelopes using different prints from the card. It is so easy and it really make the card look finished. I used a Close to My Heart rubber stamp for the tree. I antiqued the oval and the background paper. I used the Marvy Giga Punch for the scalloped oval and I cut the oval with the Creative Memories oval cutting set. The star is a red metallic brad. I also used red organdy ribbon. I am decorating this year with my usual red and lime green but I am adding some bright pink ornaments, too! I put my Dickens Village up today and I have collected so many house and things that I cannot fit two of the houses on the display :-) I guess I will stop collecting until I get a bigger display. For now I am collecting stamps(He-he). I will try to post the gifts I am making soon. I am using PSX monogram stamps which are really hard to find now that they are OOB. I am also using a cute tin to put them in that I will decorate to match.

Thanksgiving Cards

These are made with stamps from Close to my Heart Rubber Stamps and Clear Stamps Bible Verses I bought at Hobby Lobby. The paper is from a Fall Stack Pad of paper. The greeting inside is Thanksgiving Blessings.
