Xmas 2010

Gosh, I know it's been such a long time since I posted.  I've been really busy with family things, personal illness, and work. 

But I'm getting back into the swing of things now.  Here's a sampling of xmas card I'm making to send out this year. 

They were made using various cricut cartridges, some rub-ons by K&Company, and embellishments by Hero Arts and Crafts as well as Making Memories. 

Hope you enjoy!

Are we there yet?

I like small cards - 4x3 and 3x3 are my favorite.

The flower was cut out using the Pagoda cartridge.  I'm still playing around trying to figure out this card. 

More iterations to come.

Is it your birthday or the puppy's?

All the shapes on this card were from the Create a Critter cartridge.  The flower embellishment on the gift bag shape was a left over from a wedding scrapbook I made.

The inside of the card had a birthday greeting stamped onto cream colored paper.

A hedgehog to brighten your day!

I made these cards with my hedgehog stamps from Close To My Heart and generic Thank you stamps from Michaels.  I used chalk pigment on the phrase stamps because I really like the soft matte finish of the ink.  For the hedgehogs, I used black archival ink and colored them in with colored pencils.  The ribbons and buttons were left overs from other scrapbooking projects. 

The puzzle shapes are from the Don Juan font cartridge.
