Merry Christmas Tree Ornament

For November we were to create an ATC that could be hung on a tree. The stamp from Tim Holtz is stamped with black StazOn ink on to an alcohol ink background. I really love the colors of this. What do you think?

A Single Jester

This is part of the Magenta Jesters stamp that I used for a card on a previous posting. I like the look of this guy all by himself. LOL. The image is colored with alcohol markers.

Victorian Christmas

This stamp is a real beauty. There's so much detail and it was a lot of fun to color. For this one I sponged Distress inks for the background and then did the coloring with Prismacolor pencils.

Joy to You

The background for this card is done with Distress Inks. The image (Tim Holtz) is stamped with Brilliance Lightning Black ink and it really shimmers beautifully. Definitely a quick card to make and Tim has made cardmaking so easy! LOL.

A Gift, A Star and Some Holly

This is another Magenta stamp. Can you tell that Magenta is one of my favorite stamp companies? The image is colored with alcohol markers.

I kind of like the look when the two top layers are folded down at the corner. What do you think?

Magenta Holly

This is another stamp I bought at our stamp club for 2 bucks. I so love it when people decide to get rid of their stamps!

I stamped the image on a cream colored piece of cardstock and sponged on various Distress Inks. After layering I added a tag (Spellbinders) and a brad. A really quick card!

Christmas Birdies

I had a great time making this card and I actually made six of them in one evening. I stamped the branches (Stampscapes) on a piece of white cardstock. Then ran a second piece of white thru the Cuttlebug using the Snowflakes embossing folder. Using my circle Coluzzle I made a "window" in the embossed piece. This was attached over the first piece of stamped cardstock. I stamped the birds (Inkadinkadoo) twice with red chalk ink. The 2 birds were cut out and the foreground bird was cut from the other stamped image and adhered on top of the other birds with some foam tape to give some dimension. I colored the chests of the birds with H2Os and added some Stickles. The berries on the branches are colored with a red gel pen.

Magenta Jesters

This has got to be one of my favorite Christmas stamps. I picked it up at our stamp club for 2 bucks! I stamped and embossed on to a piece of background paper I made some time ago and just didn't know what to do with it. The images are painted with with H2Os.

Peace on Earth

This is another card done with cream and gold. The house stamp is from Magenta and I love how it turned out with the gold embossing.

Hope everyone has a wonderful, creative day. And, thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday

I made this card for a dear friend of mine. The stamps are from Inkadkinkadoo. The Stickles don't show up that well, but they are there and LOTS of them.

Cream & Gold

I love the simplicity of this color combination. The trees from Stampin' Up are embossed with gold e/p. I've used my Coluzzle and Nestabilities and of course my Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder.

Thanks for dropping by!

I Love Chocolate!

I participated in a "House" ATC mingle on one of my groups. I literally destroyed my Roger's Chocolates catalogue to create these pieces. I'm really pleased with the way they turned out. What do you think?

Here's another card that is done in cream and gold. I love this little angel. Isn't she just the cutest? Sorry the scan isn't the best. There really is no pink on this card.

Magenta Snowman

Isn't this little guy just so cute!!!! I colored him in with alcohol markers and added him to a pierced piece of cardstock. I so love my Tim Holtz ruler as it makes paper piercing SO easy. The Cuttlebug snowflake piece was highlighted with French Blue chalk ink. The punched snowflakes are covered with Stickles and I've added some teeny gems for some extra bling.

Thanks for stopping by.
