Santa Stache

Some bright Nordic Noel Designer Series and my cheerful Santa, are a nice pairing for my Santa Stache Christmas Card. 
On my Santa, I used Crystal Effects to make the moustache shine and stand out,  my Real Red Marker gave his hat a pop of color,  along with some Gold Glitz Dazzling Details. He was cut out with a Starburst Framelit and some Real Red 3/8" Satin Woven Ribbon was tied onto my layers.  The inside saying is -  wishing you a "Stache" of cheer, this season and the coming year.  How cute!

November My Paper Pumpkin alteration

The November My Paper Pumpkin kit contained enough materials to make 8 beautiful snowflake cards as well as 8 Happy Holidays Tags.  I decided to turn some of the tags into full cards and had both the full card and the tag card available for the ladies at my stamp class.  Here is my altered tag card with just a bit of embossing on my Whisper White Card Base using my Big Shot and the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder.  The tag, silver linen thread, and snowflake were just a few of the products in this month's kit.  One of my favorites so far.

Here are the only additional products I used.  Everything else you see came in the kit.  If you would like to try My Paper Pumpkin you can go to my direct link by clicking My Paper Pumpkin in the upper left hand corner of my blog.  You can also do prepaid subscriptions - 1, 3, 6, or 12 months, and the 6 month prepaid subscription saves you $1.00 per month, and the 12 month prepaid subscription saves you $2.00 a month and also qualifies you for hostess benefits - $30.00 in free Stampin' Up! merchandise of your choice in any of the current catalogs.  E-mail me or leave a comment if you have any questions about My Paper Pumpkin or anything you see on my blog.

Nordic Noel Christmas

I thought the houses in my sheet of Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper created the perfect layer for my Christmas Card.  I really didn't need to add a lot more since the papers images added enough.
With Santa and his reindeer flying through the night wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, just a bit or Real Red 3/8" Satin Woven Ribbon was all the extra embellishment I used.
The following were used:
Card Stock:  Real Red #102482, Garden Green #102584, Whisper White #100730
Designer Series Paper:  Nordie Noel #135822
Ribbon:  Real Red 3/8" Satin Woven #135840
Punch: Decorative Label #120907
Stamp Set: Holiday Home #135095
Ink:  Real Red #126949, Baked Brown Sugar #131174

Once again, I used some left over pieces from my October Stamp Class to come up with a different card.  This time I changed the sentiment and turned my Designer Series Paper over to get a different design.  I find that this is a time saver for me.  I already have the materials cut but want to come up with a different card, so with just a few changes I have another card to send.
I used the Just Sayin' Stamp Set for my sentiment and cut it out with the coordinating Word Bubbles Framelits.  My arrows were cut from pieces that come with the Label Card Framelits and they added a nice accent to highlight my thanks.  I also used some Sweet Sadie and Retro Fresh Washi Tape and a piece of Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper for my layer, and my piece of Bermuda Bay Card Stock was embossed with the Argyle Embossing Folder.

Tag Talk Birthday

I used some left over cut pieces from my October Stamp Class to make my birthday card.   Some Back to Black Designer Series Paper cut into small layers and some Basic Black Baker's Twine created my main design.  I added an additional stamped image from the Chalk Lines set and then added my birthday sentiment punched out with the coordinating Label Bracket punch.
