Happy Christmas Wishes

The final card from my girls night, is my absolute favorite.  I know I've probably said that already, but it's true.  My kids always tease me because every card seems to be my favorite card ;) 

Garden Green base, basic black layer and a plaid layer from the Festive Farmhouse DSP.
Layer and layer the tags and add those fun stars and snowflakes. 
I stamped my simple sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink.

And the girls had to play with this one... they LOVED this DSP and saw lots of fun ideas in their heads!

I enjoy cards that are a bit wonky... this one is so fun!

And this one turned out so simple and sweet, I recreated it later that week.

Merry Christmas card

This card, looks fancy, but it's quite simple.  No changes made from my girls on this one... they did not care for the other side of the DSP. 

Garden Green base, Whisper White layer, Festive Farmhouse DSP, add your tags, but this time, cut our doily in half to make it fit around the circle tag and use lots of dimensionals!  We want lots of things to POP!

Snowflake Christmas

Here is another card from my girls night last week.  This was my second favorite card.  Super Simple and I LOVE this Merry Christmas from the I'll Be Home stamp set!

Cherry Cobbler base, Garden Green Layer, Festive Farmhouse DSP layer
Add a ribbon and tag pieces from the kit.
Stamp Merry Christmas in Garden Green ink.

Of course, these girls had to change things up again... check out what one of them came up with!

She just cut the rounded edge off the tag and changed the set up of the tags.  Love it!

Concert Season

You may know that my full time job is an Elementary Music Teacher.  I LOVE my job.  I LOVE holiday concerts... but boy do I stress myself out working hard to make it as special and "perfect" as it can be for my students.  

Yesterday was the final rehearsal day... today is concert day.  Wish me luck.  I thought I would share one of my favorite pics about music teachers this time of the year, because this just couldn't be more true. 

Enjoy and may your holiday season be creative AND musical!

Oh Christmas Tree... Tag n card

Here's card #2 from our girls night.  Also nice and simple.
No stamping on this one unless you want to on the inside.

Whisper White base, Cherry Cobbler layer, Festive Farmhouse DSP 
Then I used 2 tear drop tags and the tree tags from the kit
I added a strip of 1/2" x 4" of Cherry cobbler, snipped the ends like a banner.
Next, I assembled.
Lots of dimensionals!
Of course, someone always has to try something new.  
Here are 2 more cards made using the exact same supplies!

This one, she simply flipped the DSP.

This one, she cut down the DSP and used a base piece and a strip, so creative!

Hello December!

Well, it's finally here!  December!  I am still working on Christmas cards... go figure.  Not super surprising.  Us crafty people often do better under the pressure :) 

Friday night I had the pleasure of stamping with 11 fabulous ladies from work!  We had so much fun!  Many of them stopped me today and thanked me and told me what a wonderful night it was and how much fun they had making cards.  We used the Sincerely Santa Project Kit to create many fun cards!

Here's card #1:

So nice and simple.  
Cherry cobbler base, Whisper White layer, Farmhouse DSP layer
Add the tags, doilies and ribbon from the kit.  
I cut a few ovals using the Layering Ovals framelits and Stitched Shapes framelits. 
Stamp your sentiment and assemble.
They went together so quick and easy! 

As you shop for gifts... keep in mind stamping.  Creative gifts can lead to fabulous friendships and hobbies!
