Trash to Treasure Snow Globe card

Hey there, crafty peeps! Here is my Design Team card for Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #185 Last Minute Christmas! I was recently at a weekend scrapbook crop and everyone there knows that I collect the little items they make and don’t use! I love to get the little tidbits and then use them to make cards! One of my friends was practicing printing with her Cricut machine and gave me the practice sheet. Another friend had made too many “Merry Christmas” die cuts and another had an extra snow globe so, I colored up the snow globe, added glossy accents and whipped up a Trash to Treasure card!

I hope you join us for the challenge and share your Christmas cards for guys with us! I look forward to seeing what you make!




Polar Bear Christmas card

Happy Holidays, my stamping crafter friends!! I can’t believe we are only a week away from Christmas! Where did the year go? I am still in shock that we only have a week of shopping days left!

I was busy this weekend doing my shopping for presents, wrapping presents and making Christmas cards! I just finished doing 60 cards for my husband to give out at his work so I thought I’d share the card with you for Always Fun Challenges #37 A Christmas Carol! Please join us and share your Christmas cards with us! We would love to see what you made!

I did leave off one little thing for this card, I had put a puffy sticker of a Coke can in his little paw for my husband’s cards since he works at Coca-Cola! I have to say, I love how the cards came out! Merry Christmas!!

I wish I could have taken a better picture because this card looks so good in real life! The monochromatic theme looks so cute with the cute image from Bugaboo Digital Stamps called Reindeer 01! I used white colored pencil, Versa Marker and my Wink of Stella marker to highlight and color this image!

Santa Tag card

Hi, my crafty friends! It’s getting closer to Christmas and I haven’t even put up the tree yet! I am so behind! Thank goodness my son graduated from college over the weekend so he came home and can help me get things done! He doesn’t know it yet but he is going to wrap presents, help me shop, help me decorate and bake! Hee, Hee, Hee – oh, I mean, Ho, Ho, Ho!

So, here is my Design Team card for Shopping Our Stash Challenge #333 “Let’s Play Tag” — create a tag on it’s own or on a card/project! I shopped my stash and found a Santa tag that I had not used last year so I added some clear stickles and attached it to a card base I also found in my stash! This card is definitely shopped from my stash!! I hope you join us for the challenge and shop your stash for a tag!!

Vintage Santa card

Hello there! Welcome back stampers! This is my Design Team card for Always Fun Challenges #36 Santa! I have had this vintage Santa stamp for over a year and finally thought up a way to use it! It is a had stamp to use because it has a distinct outline and very fine lines so I have always struggled with it – until now! I decided to go with an old timey feel so I think it worked out pretty well! Please join us this week for the Santa challenge!!
