Embossed Xmas Card

I was playing with the other set of new stamps I got in the gina k set. This is the card I came up with.

Red and green cs is whats left of the package in the gina k set. thats great cs by the way! set of 3 tree stamp is also from the gina k holiday cheer set(i stamped some extra in a line). Embossed with green powder. the sentiment is also from the holiday cheer stamp set. Pop dots used under the matted sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by and as always I welcome your comments....

Xmas tag

I am making some tags for a friend who is doing much baked goodies for this weekend to sell. I had my ideas going and they were ahead of me I think. More buttons in xmas theme were nowhere to be found so i have to now go to another store. Honest opinions does this look with the xmas themed buttons on it? should i replace it with something else? I really like how i embossed the tag. The color that it is shows up very nicely. The tag is cut from the cricut @ 6.5 inches. gold paper of tag is from gina k designs. Embossed with my sizzix embossing folder. the green cs under the white cs is from gina k designs. Kelly green inking on the edges of the white cs. Ribbon also from Gina K designs. xmas themed buttons are from my stash.

Today I made a xmas card--started out copying a design from a wreath i saw on mojo monday site....then it totally turned out different....I like it but now i see that i used white cs and the bow on the wreath is white but the ribbon is more cream. now i am unhappy with it and need to change it somehow?

I used a sizzix embossing folder for the card background, 1 and 1/4 in stars cut from my cricut expression,standard size hole punch for the red berries, and ribbon from Gina K. The double mat behind the wreath is 3d dotted. Please leave comments on your honest opinions...thanks!

Hello all! It's a beautiful Sunday here in NY! The temperature was nearly 70 today! We have been outside most of the day enjoying it because it will be gone as quick as it came!

Today i have made a card for MoJo Monday. I just found this blog from following a friend who subscribed. The challenge was fun! Due by 8pm today, so get your entries in quickly! You can visit the blog: to see the other wonderful entries. Here is my take on the sketch. I used red and green cs from Gina K designs, Ho Ho Ho paper is scrap cs, mini silver brads also from Gina K, stamp from the Gina K Holiday Cheer Stamp kit(colored with colored pencils: red, burnt sienna, terra cotta & moss green), tied with beautiful ribbon from Gina K. The cs squares are also 3d dotted to the card.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your day!

Hi all! Today my Gina K stamps came! What a great package! I got 20 fabulous sheets of colored cardstock(and not the crappy stuff either!), a baggie of assorted beautiful ribbons, a baggie of 2 colors of mini brads, 4 different sized clear containers-for gift giving, a sheet of sentiment stamps and finally a sheet of image stamps. Oh ya i also got a white gel pen since mine dried up! both stamp sheets had ezmount on them too. For a first time cutter it was easy enough to cut around the images to mount them on my acrylic blocks.  I tested the sentiments out already. 2 THUMBS UP! Some need to be cut down more, the ink was blobbing on the rubber..didnt leave a good image.
I will certainly be posting some new cards i make with these stamps--next week though! Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
