A Baker's Gift

I made several of these for friends for xmas.  I got the  image off of my Silhouette and then just added my own design and wording inside the image.  I used sticker paper to print it.  Quick and easy!

Christmas 2012 cards

Another Christmas card to share today.  The background trees is a stamp by Memory Box.  After I stamped on my white cardstock, I embossed it with the dots embossing folder.  I cut out some snowy hills for my diecut trees and deer (Tim Holtz) to stand on.  The cloud is also a diecut that has been stamped with a sentiment.  I'm not so sure of the makers of some of the products I used as I made them back in August.  This card is a typical scene here at my home except for the bow on the deer!
Hope you have a great weekend!

Christmas 2012

I am FINALLY getting back into my craft room for a short time.  We have had so much going on in our house and no time to stamp.  But, I did get most of my cards mailed out this week so thought I would share a few.  I did these this summer when I had spare time - knowing that Dec would be crazy!  Thank goodness I did that or there would be no xmas cards this year.  This was made from a Sizzix die that I found on Joann's website all summer for really cheap and decided to add one to my zillions of other dies!  I knew I would make it into an ornament card in some way, and I think I did pretty well.  I cut the die which is just the ornament and a round circle inside of it.  I then embossed it with a SU folder.  On most of the cards, I dotted the berries of the pointsettia with gold.  Looks like I missed this card!  I then cut a Spellbinders die scalloped oval.  I embossed it in gold with a xmas sentiment and added a ribbon bow.  I also embossed the sentiment inside in gold.  The cardstock I used for the card is a linen cardstock which added a little more elegance to go with the ornament.

You can view the new Hero Arts 2013 catalog by clicking on the link on my sidebar for Ellen Hutson.  Lots of new and wonderful stamps!  Love the Flower Tag!

I hope to be back tomorrow with another card.  I have so much "moving in" to do with all the new cabinets we have added to our home.  Lots of rearranging and organizing to do and what a great time of year to be doing it - NOT!!!

Another baby card

Another baby card here.  Brittany had a baby shower this past weekend so I made several fun cards.  This is a side step dresser card.  It is really much simpler than it looks - I promise!  The drawers are just rectangles that have been popped up with a long piece of dimensional tape.  I added a few small stamped images from SU to fill the drawers.  The bottom of the dresser have been punched with MS and SU punches.  The image on the left is from patterned paper that I just cut out and backed with several layers of diecuts.  I also stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card.
Another day of excitement yesterday as I have been once again recognized by another of my favorites.... GRAPHIC 45 on their blog for my Nutcracker cards.  They are one of my favorite manufacturers of designer papers so I was shocked and thrilled beyond belief! 
We are still in the middle of chaos in our house.  The cabinets have been delayed a few weeks so things are a mess everywhere.  I did finally get my trees up so I am glad for that.  Now I just have to try to keep Kaila from tearing them down!  She is actually doing very well, so far.  She has only taken one ornament off and totally destroyed it.  It was a cute Santa Teddy Bear.  She is better at carrying off my stuffed Santas and bears I have sitting around.  Guess she thinks everything is hers.
Hope you have a great day and enjoy your crafting!
