Sharing a few cards

This card was posted to the Mod Squad Challenge.

Merry Christmas

The stamps are from The Stamps of Life: Christmasgreetings2stamp and pinecones2stamp. The green inks are Lawn Fawn and the red berries are stamped in Gina K Designs Cherry Red ink. The white and red paper are both Stampin’Up, and the green is The Stamps of Life. The Merry Christmas greeting is embossed with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder from Stampin’Up. This was the first time trying this powder. It seems to emboss fairly quickly.

The next card is one that I began for the speed challenge in blues. If the ornaments were stamped, punched, and laying there, I think they would have worked for the challenge. I decided to take my time and finish a card using the ornaments.

Merry Christmas in blues

The blue inks used are Lawn Fawn. I added sparkle to the ornaments with a Sukura gel pen. The ornament hangers are gold thread. I scored the greeting to set it apart from the ornaments.

I went ahead and finished the inside of the card. I like the sentiments in the set I used.

  1. Like both of the cards, too. The blue ornament card is very pretty. I really like the embossed lines you added and the script sentiment is beautiful. Thanks for showing the inside of your card.

    1. Thanks Gayle. I do like the blue ornament card. I may make more as there are several different ornaments in the set.

  2. I like your Christmas cards! That pine frame is beautiful with the shades of green and red berries that make it pop. Blues are a favorite, so your ornament is a definite win in my book. Glad you took the time to make a complete card with what you had started.

    1. Thanks! I do like the blue. Had fun with the pine frame. Now I need more time and energy to just sit and create a lot of Christmas cards.
