I love how these set of cards came out I truely wish you could see them in real life because they look so much better. All the products used on this set of cards is from the prize package on won last year from the World cardmaking contest. The line of products is from Pebbles Inc. All the cards are different in some way just using the same product.

May the magic of Christmas

This card is a sketch I found online and loved it so of course I had to make a card using it. The stamp set is an old retired stamp set sorry I don't know the name of it. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Holiday Wishes set. I colored the wreaths with my stampin up markers in old olive and real red. The DP is retired from last year stampin up. Then I just added a couple of buttons.

This card I used a very old stampin up set I don't even remember the name of it sorry, but I love this image. The DP is from Papertrey Ink as is the sentiment from the Believe set. I probably have already said this and will many more times but I Just love the embossing folders from provocraft. I have seen so many beautiful cards on splitcoast using these. That's pretty much it for this card very simple.

Holiday blessings to you and yours

The stamp I used for this card is an old retired stampin up hostess set. I like this set but it is always hard to find something to do with it. I think for this I went vintage kinda of look. The sentiment is also Papertrey Ink Holiday wishes set. I also love this ribbon from the stampin up Holiday mini. So many great things in that little book.

Wishing you the happiest of holidays

I love how this card came out. I used my cricut for the tree wrapped some silver cord around it to give it a little decoration. The sentiment is from Papertrey ink Holiday wishes set. The DP is from a stack last year and then I just added a little bit of bling under the sentiment.

This card was made using a stamp that came in the kit of the month from unity. The DP is Basic Grey's Mellow collection. For this card I colored the image using my stampin up markers. You can't see in the picture but I also stamped friends on the bottom of the card in Chocolate chip ink.

Wishing you the best

This is a quick card that my mom wanted me to make for her friend. The DP is a scrap and go pack from K and Kompany. I just love these paper packs they make it so easy to whip a project up. The sentiment is from a birthday stamp set I got from papertrey ink. Then i just added a butterfly that is a Martha Stewart punch and ribbon and that's it easy.

Christmas Cards

I used for this card the mittens from the flaky friends set from stampin up. The dp is retired also from stampin up. I colored the mittens with my stampin up markers. I'm so happy I invested in these markers I had to do something after seeing everyone doing beautiful work with the copics. I know they are two totally different sets of markers but I would not be able to afford the copics. So sad maybe sometime in the future.
This card I also used paper from Mind's Eye that I adhered to sage shadow for the base of the card which you can't really notice that that's what I used. I added silver ribbon and cord around the card base and added the felt flower. The sentiment once again is from papertrey ink. That pretty much is it nice and simple the way I like it.

This card is also pretty simple. The wreath is from my cricut machine and I just added brads for a little decoration on the wreath. The DP is from DCWV Christmas stack this year. The sentiment is also from Papertrey's mixed messages. Love that stamp set so many great sentiments and the perfect size for all your punches. The punch I used is from stampin up.

A simple card I am just having hard time with Christmas coming up with simple but beautiful cards. This one is not my fav but it will do. It's pretty straight forward nothing to hard here. The paper is by Mind's Eye the sentiment is from stampin up set called to you and yours. The felt snowflake is from stampin up I just love these things. The red background is embossed and sanded using the cuttlebug folder.

Another season of friedndship

This time I am doing a Christmas card with this set from stampin up. A very simple card I used one of my cuttlebug dies for the corners just to add that little something. Can you believe it no ribbon or buttons on my card might have to add later. Stamped the snowflakes in craft white ink. The sentiment is from mixed messages papertrey ink.

Season's Greetings

For this card I used the stamp set called perfect presentation from stampin up alot of great images in this set. Used old DP from last year sage shadow cardstock that seemed to go pretty good with this DP. Added a scallop edge towards the bottom and a white gel pen to add a little accent.
Here is a pretty simple card I just love these pinecones from the papertrey ink set called first fruits the sentiment is also from papertrey ink. I just used kraft card stock my all time fav and some old DP that I purchased last year I think from Walmart. Then I used the scallop rectangle. This is a two step stamp set makes everything easy and clean looking

Here are some more Christmas cards the sentiment is from papertrey ink stamp set called Holiday Wishes perfect for the holidays alot of great sentiments. The paper is from DCWV Christmas stack this year. I wanted to use a flower to match the DP and the only thing I really had to use was the flower punch from stampin up and this hostess set that is retired. I think it came out pretty good.

Christmas Cards

This stamp is a unity stamp from the September kit of the month. Love this stamp I thought it would be perfect for a Christmas card. I was going to watercolor this image but I didn't like how it looked so I decided to just color it in with my stampin up markers. The sentiment is also a retired stampin up set. The dp is a stack of Christmas paper I got last year. The ribbon I got at Michaels this week. They have a lot of great xmas ribbon.
Here is going to be one of many Christmas cards. Everything here is all retired stampin up stuff the stamps set I think is called festive favorites and the DP is also from last year that I had left over gotta love leftovers. I watercolored the trees to give it a soft look since my paper is a light color and of course had to add my button and ribbon in there.

Happy Birthday

I love how this card came out the silhouettes are from another stampin up retired set. I have alot of retired sets that I'm just starting to use which is sad. The paper is from K and Kompany I think It's called Wild Saffron just love it. Sentiment again is from Papertrey Can never have to many sentiments. Then I just added buttons and ribbon.
This next card is pretty simple the vase and flower are from an Inkadoo set. I stamped the vase and cut it out and popped it up with pop dots. The paper is SEI Oasis collection love the colors in this paper pack. The sentiment is also from papertrey ink.

This is an old hostess set but I just love the bird and don't think you can see it but I stamped the bird on a glue pad and used glitter. This is the first time I've done this and I really do like it. I used the Martha Stewart glue pad and glitter that I got at walmart. The paper is Amy Butler K and Kompany. The sentiment is papertrey ink.

Really only two more

This is the last one I promise I really have to move on to Christmas cards already it's going to be Christmas in October here at my house. I have alot of Christmas stuff going on this year I have two stores that I supply x-mas cards to,a couple of craft shows,I do my own x-mas cards to send out and a couple of other people's. The list is never ending. Ok sorry so onto the card I love this stamp set from stampin up called season of friendship and really it is a great stamp set for every season. The dp is also from stampin up it was in the holiday mini catalogue so many great things in there. I just stamped the big old tree in chocolate chip and the leaves in more mustard,ruby red and sage shadow. Did you see i cut out the bird and popped it up on a pop dot. Then of coarse I had to add the button.
I know I said I was done with the Thanksgiving cards but then I got this papertrey set and just had to make a card right away. How can you not these stamps are so beautiful and they just make it so easy for a card to come together. The stamp set is called first fruits and there are so many great stamps and sentiments in this set. The paper is also from papertrey ink. I used chocolate chip and more mustard ink. The best part that makes these stamps so great is that they are two steps.
