Christmas Silhouettes

Here's more of my christmas cards from the scrap bin.
These ones were the easiest yet! Just stamp them, layer the card and add a touch of stickles!
The Holly image is inked (carefully) and then double stamped to get the different shades.

Super simple. Let me know if you have any questions. I kinda thought they didn't need many words! All the images are from inkadinkadoos Christmas Silhouettes set.

Winter Post

I loved this set the second Stampin Up! Came out with it and thought it would be perfect for a Zindorf Style card with the reflection technique.
I'm so happy with how it turned out and really want to play with it some more. I've seen some beautiful cards using the skaters and the Lovely as a tree set which is what I'll do next, I think!

The top one if my favorite. This one I put the ribbon on because I tried stamping a sentiment and embossing is but it turned out aweful and I just couldn't toss it! The snowflake flourishes is from an Inkadinkadoo set. I think it's called winter trails. Have a great day! The frost is on the ground here, but the sun is SHINING! It's going to be a great day!

Kitty Christmas angel

Yet another card using scraps from the bin. I wanted to keep the angel super simple and wanted to try NOT using the bright yellow on the eyes like I usually do! Love how simple she is! The Kitty is from Pink Cat Studio and is in the Christmas Kitty set.

A Cardinal Christmas

Another card from the scrap bin! The cardinal was stamped with Brilliance ink and Embossed with clear EP. It is colored with copics and the background was sponged.
Here's a closer look at the image....

Just makes you feel like christmas doesn't it!
Have a great day!

Snow swirled

These super simple cards are made with Stampin Up!s Snow swirled set.
The base has been run through the cuttlebug using the snowflake folder. The first 3 are done with gold EP and the next one is done using Holographic EP. Is that stuff ever COOL!
Here's a pic that shows a bit of the Holographic 'shine'. I love the color to it.

As you can tell I ran a versamark over the embossed part and added the Holographic EP to it as well. The edge of the image piece is done using a versamarker with the samd Holographioc EP.
Have a great day!

Lily builds a snowman

Here's one of the Christmas cards in the stack that I made. It is made with stamps from Pink Cat studio. I'm positive I cased it from somewhere, but I have no idea where. If you know...let me know! Anyway, I love that it's non-traditional christmas colors! I used perfect puff for her earmuffs and for the trim on her outfit.
Have a great day! The sun is shining here, so I'm off to go enjoy it while it lasts!

I'm certified and have the certificate to prove it! A bunch of us from the LSS I teach at went to copic certification yesterday. We had a tonne of fun and learned so much! I've been playing with the markers for a while and still learned a bunch of stuff!

Thanks Marriane and your crew!

What I've been up to!

I gave myself a challenge to make as many
christmas cards as I could using my scraps.
I pulled out all the christmas colors in both solids and printed papers.
This is what I've come up with.....

I've been having so much FUN!

I haven't worried about the finished sizes of the cards (which I might regret when I go to mail them!). I've just enjoyed being creative and using the supplies I have!

The scary part?

This is what I still have in my scrap bin!

I still have a TONNE of scraps in there!
I'll start posting some of the cards individually this week, I still need to take a few pics.
