More Christmas Cards

 I am so happy to share more  Christmas Cards with you!!! But first I have to share my excitment in my latest haul... I bought the score board by Martha Stewart and a Crocadile Big Bite 2!!! I am still learning new projects I can do using the Score Board now that I have the basics down. I will be showing the beautiful rossettes I made, I found the tutorial on youtube, my favorite place . The big bite, well I cannot say how much easier it made my card making experience, no more hammering!
Now onto my projects this week


The first few pictures is a card I made with white paper... I created my own background using my homemade glimmer mist , the gift boxes were created using a Martha Stewart gift stamp and punch and I added stickles by Ranger. ( again new products from my latest haul!)
The Merry Christmas red tag was created using Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  I stamped the Merry Christmas using a resistant Watermark ink pad, covered in Clear ultra powder (Yeah! it looks white , right??) , heated it then rubbed the red ink pad all over, and of course added the grommet with my new BIG BITE!!!!
You can see my tree in the background, Yes I have it up already!! My little boy just couldn't another day and the truth is I couldn't either ... I am Christmas's number one fan.

The border is left overs from when I made my own glitter strips! How???? I just take 2 way tape, apply it to paper, remove the tape paper to reveal the tape and apply glitter! I use my finger to make it apply even, also it works better with really fine glitter.

Martha Stewart gift stamp and Punch in one set!

I made the background with a  Joy stamp from Michael's worth $1.50 and embossed it with ultra embossing powder... it gives of a purplish hue. I so love this card.

This card was made with a Santa Coaster!!! It is very light weight and I love that it has the Sentiment written on it!!!

Another one of my favorites, I appreciate white space...when the card is opened there is another gate fold small card inside! It is really cool...notice that all my cards are tied to an oragami Envelope which you can learn how to do by searching for the tutorial in my blog. The Envelope gives the card a decorative base

You just have to love Roudolf!!! This is one of the cheap foam stamps I got at the dollar store
I used stickles on the angel stamp.. I love the straw string

I will see you all soon with more Christmas Cards, let them inspire you!
