Merry Christmas Card

Hello everyone! I have one last card to share with you today. To create this card I used a Tim Holtz Christmas embossing folder along with some red foil paper from Martha Stewart. The base of my card is black and I added a white mat on top along with another layer of black and white mats to really make the embossed sentiment on the red foil paper stand out.

Hello everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by. Today I want to share a little mini album I created using the WeR Memory Keepers Winter Frost paper line. This paper is really pretty. I used a lot of Lindy’s Starburst Spray in Scintillating Silver to add some frosty sparkle!

Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by today. My husband needed a gift card holder for work so this is what I created.

Merry Christmas Gift Card Holder front

I created a few of these last year using a white 6×9 envelope. I really wanted to have a black base so I used a couple of black card envelopes to create the gift card holder.

The design paper is from Recollections and is called “Home for the Holidays.” I really liked the traditional colors of this paper and thought the black base would really give the papers a crisp designer look.

The little tag on the closer came from the paper collection as well as the “Joy” on the inside. I added an additional sentiment on the inside. I stamped “Merry Christmas” using my Christmas Joy stamp set from CardzTv.

Hey everyone! Well, today I have two posts for you! Today I am the guest designer on the WeR Memory Keepers Facebook Page! I am so excited to share with you what I created!

In keeping with the gift giving season I created a Christmas Tussie Mussie that you can fill with Christmas goodies as a neighbor gift, or surprise someone and use it as a secret Santa gift.

To create this fun project I used the We R Memory Keepers Yuletide collection. I started out by taking a sheet of 12×12 design paper and rolling it into a cone shape. I adhered the paper together with a strong adhesive and then used my scissors to trim the top in a rounded shape.

I attached a jingle bell to the bottom point of the cone and added some wide ribbon trim to the top for hanging. I took some silver Christmas ribbon and hand pleated it and attached it to the top of the cone with hot glue.

I cut out the cute “Have Yourself a Merry Little Chritmas” sign and attached it to the front. I added a berry twig sticker from the sticker sheet and a silver bow to the corner.

That’s it! Now your Christmas Tussie Mussie is ready to be filled with goodies!
Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone! It’s time for another CardzTv Stamps Design Team Challenge. The challenge this time is “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.” Create a card, layout or project for Christmas with snow, a snowflake, or a snowman.

White Christmas Snowman Card

Every year I do “Snowman Soup” packs for my grand kids and nieces and nephews. So I cut out this cute little snowman with my Cricut and used the CardzTv Stamp Set Christmas Joy for the little tag that says “For you.”

White Christmas Snowman Card Outside

On the inside I used the same stamp set to stamp my sentiment, “Warmest Holiday Wishes!”.

White Christmas Snowman Card Inside I also added the little snowman soup poem that I printed on my computer to the front of the inside pocket.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will come join us for this fun challenge at CardzTv.

Paintbrush Santa Ornaments

Hello everyone! Happy Holidays! I spent a day crafting with some friends and we created some cute little paintbrush Santa ornaments. These are really easy and look cute on the tree!

Paintbrush Santa Ornaments

The large paintbrush is 3 inches wide and the other two are 2 inches wide. I purchased really inexpensive paintbrushes and painted the handles red. I added buttons for the eyes and nose. On one of the smaller Santa’s I added google eyes and on the larger Santa I used a wooden knob that was painted red for the nose. I added some fibers to the top part of the paintbrush and added some ribbon at the top.

To make the one Santas’ beard white I just dipped it in some white paint and let it dry.

Thanks for looking! Have a great week!
