Silent Night

Silent Night, ahh don't we all love those... for sleep! But when you read that, when you hear the carol, what dose it bring to mind? For me it is a quietness wrapped in a warm hug, a clear sky and bright shinning stars with a crispness in the air, and a deep breath of awe. It is an eternal peace, a settling of mind, soul and spirit. It is my God by my side at the end of the day reasuring me that He is always here. What is Silent Night to you?

Be Merry

You see "Be Merry" around the holidays a lot. But to most of us we are stressed out to the max. And  with the added hub bub of the holidays added into our already jammed packed days, sometimes it is hard to be merry. Jesus tells us to have a merry heart all year round.

Here is one way to look at being Merry around the crazy holidays. If it wasn't for Jesus' birthday day there just might not have ever been any Merry to have.

I embossed the card base with the new embossing folder Softly Falling. I used my vintage (retired) ornament punch to punch out the Garden Green, Real Red, and Whisper White ornaments. Don't fret there are some new ones in the Holiday catalog that are georgous.

I added a little 2-way glue around the white ornament and dipped it in silver glitter and added a tiny silver cording bow. Yep you know my motto; easy, quick and uber cuteness.

Blessings

You can almost see the glitter on this card, it is so lovely. I bearley sponged some ink using a oval mask for the background. Then stamping lovely as a tree and the greeting this gives you a super quick Christmas card. You can mass produce this one in a very short time. I know it seams early for Christmas, but if you don't get started early you will never get if all done in time.
Ready, Set, Start! Get your Christmas on!

Tumbling Snowman

 Isn't he adorable? Yep! Uber cuteness going on in today's post. I call him my tumbling snowman. I used 3 of the oval thinlets to create the base of the card, and then stacked the two larger size ovals added a brad to give the head and body some swing. I created the had by cutting out 2 black ovals and cutting one almost in 1/2 and adding the ribbon band.
As long as you keep the oval sided to fit in the envelope you can use any size shapes you want. I punched out a scalloped circle and cut pie shapes out of it for the carrot nose. The greeting came from a new set from our Holiday Catalog that is offered to hostess. He is super cuteness.

Bright Butterfly

How about a little bit of spring in the mix of our upcoming winter! This is such an easy card, and you can use up all your scrap paper making it. I love that part. I have lots of scraps. No matter how much I try to use up they seam to continually grow!

I cut the little back ground paper square in a 2"x2" and glued to front of the card. Then punching out three butterflies, I glued them on top of each other at the center of body, leaving the wings unglued so they could fold up a little and look like they are fluttering. Adding linen thread and a button.

The greeting is stamped in the new Basic Gray ink. AND I LOVE IT! It is just the perfect color that is dark, but not dark like black. It is permanent ink for water coloring and other techniques and it is the perfect color... oh I already said that one.

Ya just have to get yourself one. And maybe the black one too. Yep we have new Basic Black too.

Greatful Heart

I so love this card and so did the card club girls. The leaf seams to just off the page at you. I stamped the background using the wood grain background stamp, then die punched out the leaf. Stamp the fall scene on the leaf and colored it in using stampin write markers, and daubered on some ink for the sky and grass area. I sponged around the leaf, card and greeting punch.
The fall scene stamp is in a set from the new Holiday Catalog, and is available while supplies last. The catalog ends January 4, so hurry and order yours today before it is gone for good.

Fall Love

 The season is here isn't it. The rush of all the holidays and all the stuff that goes with it. It is just exhausting! Or can be sometimes. Fall is my favorite season. The colors, the cooler temps. The smells of yummy baked goodies. Pumpkin everything.... yumm pumpkin everything!

As I type this a few weeks earlier before this posts, it is still 75-80 degrees for a high in Indiana. I am wondering is fall is really coming. The trees tell me it is. But it is warm this week. However I am not complaining, the freeze of winter will be upon us soon enough.

This basket of fall leaves just makes me happy. Fun card don't you agree? I used on part of the the berry basket die to create the card, and then cut out a pile of leaves. I sponged chocolate chip ink around all the edges. Every time I sponge edges I think of my artist friend Kim, she sponges everything paper edge!
