Hi Friends! Happy December… ❤ The Tree is up as well as the stockings and a few other decorations! I am really enjoying our cooler weather here in East Texas.
I made a card & tag with the Christmas Silhouette stamp set and dies! I stamped a lot of the flowers and then die cut them out. I used the Christmas Script for the To: on the tag.
I have been a little obsessed with the Black and White (Buffalo Plaid). So I decided to make a background to look like that, and then Die cut it out with the oval dies and then did a black layer to add behind it. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make a tag or a card… So I made both! LOL. I rearranged the poinsettias and added the greeting. I thought this would make a great tag as well. So now, matching card and tag for someones gift this year! 🙂
Welcome to my Blog! Hope you all are having a great Thursday! The Holidays are getting close and I am thinking of all those preparing Thanksgiving meals. This year Hubby and I have decided to stay home and enjoy his 4 day weekend. Hopefully the rain will pass quickly and we can get in the yard some. 🙂 What are you doing for Thanksgiving? Are you cooking? Staying Home or traveling?
For this Months Challenge over at Gina K. Design, the Challenge is to make a project with Snow or Snowmen on it. So I made a card to play along. I can’t get enough of the Folk Art Snowflakes that came in the Recent Card Kit – Warm Winter Wishes. Here is the card I made. CAS. I love the Tranquil Teal accents and the softness of the Ocean Mist.
These are the product I used. I didn’t list the Card Kit as it is sold out. The set will be available before long. The embossing folder isn’t listed below as Gina don’t carrie it and not sure where to find it.
Thank you for stopping by and spending a few minutes with me! I hope you will comment on what you are doing for Thanksgiving! 🙂 Have a wonderful day and a Happy Thanksgiving! ❤ To Check out the details of the Challenge you can click > Monthly Mix Challenge

Ok, Let me share the cards made with this Fabulous Card Kit and other goodies! ❤
This one showcases this beautiful tree & Snowfall Stencil in the Christmas Silhouette Stamp Set that is in the Warm Winter Wishes Card Kit. I also used the Greeting from the Christmas Script Stamp Set. Laying the Snowfall stencil down over a piece of card stock and then inked it up with my Embossing Ink Pad. Once I removed the stencil and added the Gold Embossing powder I Die cut the center out with the Largest Single Stitched Oval Die. On another piece of card stock I stamped the tree and heat embossed it in the same gold embossing powder. Took Velum from my stash and heat embossed the greeting in the gold powder too. Wrapped the ends around the top layer and secured them on the back. Using foam squares I popped up the top layer on to the layer with the tree. Added that all to my card base. You could easily emboss the tree on the card base and save a piece of paper. I used a piece of Gold Metallic Card Stock and then layered it with a piece of white. There was a small strip of the Snowfall that I had cut off and saved, so I attached to the inside. You can see it in the photo below. I added red bling from my stash to finish it off ! ❤
What can I say… I love this snowman. ❤ On this card and Envelope set I created some snow hills for my snowman. Stamped him on a separate sheet of paper in the Whisper Amalgam ink and colored him with Copic markers. Then I stamped the taller tree and the little pine tree that is in You Warm My Heart stamp set. Blended ink on the background and used my Misti for the Greeting! Finished it off with the little hearts and popping up my snowman and added his arms. He is fussy cut and I had to draw in his little arms. 🙂 On the Envelope front, I ink blended the blue and added the same trees to the bottom left corner. Then used the To: from the stamp set Christmas Script. And for the back side of the envelope, I die cut the envelope image from the stamp set and colored it with copic markers Stamped the little greeting on the flap and glued down one edge of the die cut envelope. I will secure it will glue when I mail the card off! ❤
What fun the Glitz Glitter Gel has been! ❤ One this card there is Glitz, There is Glitter and a Big Greeting! I sprayed the stencil with Pixie Spray & placed it down on a piece of card stock, kinda off set. Then grabbed a spatula and spread Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel in Red Velvet all over. Gently picked up the stencil and cleaned it off. While that dried I took a piece of card stock and put down a piece of Terrific 1/2” then a 1/8” . Cut even with the paper and peeled off the backing of the terrific tape and poured some Red Hot glitter over it. Heat Embossed the Greeting in White Fine Detail Embossing powder on Red Velvet Card Stock and layered with White! Popped it up in the center! ❤
This one was a real quick card to make! I used the Embossing Ink and Stamped the three beautiful snowflakes from the set all over and heat embossed in White Fine Detail Powder. Die cut a Double Stitched Circle and did a little ink blending around the edges. Stamped one of the snowflakes in Sandy Beach then stamped the greeting in Kraft.
