Jingle All the Way

 Maybe the last Christmas card posting from me?  

I just had to try out this new 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder recently purchased.   I rubbed Ranger Distress Forest Moss Ink along the inside of the top panel, spritzed with water and embossed on a white card panel.   LOVE how it came out.  I took the panel out of the folder and then rubbed across the raised branches with the Forest Moss ink to highlight it a bit.
I die cut the sled out of red card and stamped the details over it  (PTI retired), punched holes and tied on the twine handle, added a bell and sentiment and adhered it over the panel with foam dots.

Buffalo Plaid Peace

 One more Christmas Card!  I just love Buffalo Plaid and tried to create that look on this card.

I stenciled the plaid over red card with Black Soot Dox ink using a Mini Plaid Stencil from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous. I stamped the bear, tree and sentiment from Great Outdoors set, also from Tim and SA, in black on white card, fussy cut the images and punched the sentiment, layering them over the plaid with foam dots.

I made dots of snow with snowy white Nuvo.

Snowy Dream Catcher

 I've been wanting to use these wonderful dies from The Greetery that I purchased over a year ago - and today is the day.   

I die cut the hoop from Hoop and Fringe die set, the snowflake net from Catching Snowflake die, and the feathers from Curio Spring Findings all from The Greetery.

I cut a second ring and set of feathers out of white card and layered them to the first die cuts.  The hoop and feathers are up on foam dots.  I added some clear gems for a little sparkle.

November Card Chain Challenge Reveal

 Today is the November reveal over at The Card Chain Challenge when they show all the cards sent and received around the world.  

I sent my card to Tina in Slovenia and I received a card from Suze in New Zealand!

Each month we sign up to participate and are given a person to send to and a person we receive from based on the order of when we sign up.  We are also given suggested colors, sketch, theme options, product/technique options.  We just need to pick one.

This month I used the Product - Stencils for my card to Tina.

 This is the first time I've used this fun Rolling Hills stencils set from The Greetery and I love the look of the bright colorful rolling hills!  I stamped one of the Small Trees from Lavina three times on the landscape and the sentiment from Thankful for Fall from Papertrey Ink.  I colored the sky with a light blue Copic.

You'll find all the cards exchanged this month as well as information on how to join in this fun monthly challenge at The Card Chain Challenge!

Winter Village Snow Globe

Another Christmas card - simple to put together if you're trying to make multiples!

I die cut a flat bottom circle out of a white panel (to look like a snow globe!).  I die cut the Country Landscape from Memory box and adhered it behind the circle.  I put foam dots on the back of the white panel and layered the patterned paper behind the cut out then adhered it all to a white card base.  I added 3 tiny clear gems to 3 snowflakes.  The base of the snow globe (with the sentiment on it) is a die from Snowglobe #2 set from Sizzix and up on foam dots.  The sentiment is from PTI.
