 Christmas Christmas Christmas it's just around the corner.  I am going to pull out all my Christmas stamps, paper, ribbon etc and start my cards......hee hee lets see how far I get.....LOL
I glued a green pattern piece of paper to a white card.
I add the embellishment which by the way is a Christmas
tag for a gift. Added the red flowers with a brad and I was done.
Boy am I really being lazy this week with my crafting. I have 

used a lot of embellishments this week. I better
get on the ball and start some real crafts and cards.....

Here are a couple more Christmas money holders I made.  Hope you are inspired to make a few yourself.  They are very easy and fun to make. 
Using a die from Taylor Expressions I cut out the
Nativity scene and glued it to the holder. 

I added the silver star to the top. 
The inside

This is the die cut I used. 
On this one I added a piece of Christmas pattern CS
and added a Tree embellishment.  I stamped Merry
Christmas on the bottom. 

I used a snowflake punch for the inside.  
Have a fantastic day!

Money Holders

  Today I am sharing a Christmas money holder I made.  I took these pictures in my craft room so some of them may be kind of dark.  So sorry about that.  These money holders are nice to stock up on for Christmas.

I used a CTMH stamp set, some white flock for the snow
and added glitter.  Very easy. 

Wow I really piled on the snow...LOL
I cut a piece of CS 8.5 X 8.25. Then scored the 8.5 side at 2 3/4
and scored 1" on both sides of the 8.25 sides. 
Cut out the four corners and folded all the score lines. 

Using a punch I punched the inside of the holder. 
I glued the two flaps and folded over the punched side.
I then decorated it shown above. 
Inside of the holder.
My husband wanted to know why I didn't have Ben Franklin
in the holder.  I told him I guess he wasn't a good boy this year...LOL
 Check back tomorrow for a few more money holders I made.  Have a super great day!

Hello everyone.  Hope your having a great Tuesday so far.  Last night I was looking over Pinterest and saw a card like this one.  I did make some changes of course and added some glitter.  I just love the sparkle. 
I embossed a white piece of CS and cut three one inch pieces.I sprayed glue onto the pieces and covered them with glitter. 

Using foam adhesive I glued them to the white card.  I then
attached  ribbon and embellishments to the card.

Inside the card. 

Wishing you an fabulous day!!!

Happy Monday to you all!!  It's time for thank you cards again.  Here is one to match the
 bridal shower invitations I made. 
I embossed the top right side of the CS and colored
in the middle of the flowers 

The thank you stamp is a CTMH stamp and the butterfly
is a punch.  I punched one in pink CS and another in pink
Vellum then layered them. 

Inside the card
Hope you have a super great week filled with smiles and happy friends and neighbors.

Happy Friday to you!!  Did you have a great week?  Sure hope so!  I decided to make a wine bottle label to match the pink Christmas card I made this week. These are hot items to at craft fairs.
I didn't have the same silver flower embellishment
so I punched another one of these pink flowers to
use instead. 

I used the same pink ribbon as the card. 

The stamp I used is from CTMH. 

Here is the card and bottle label together. 

Thanks for stopping by this week and spending some time with me.  Have a great weekend

Pink Christmas Card

Christmas is just around the corner, 125 days before Christmas day.  hee hee.  I really do need to decide what Christmas Card I am making this year and get started on them. 
I used the swirl embossing folder for the white CS. 

I stamped "Peace on Earth and punched it out. 

I attached the ribbon and the flower embellishment
to finish off the card. 

Inside of the card. 
May your day be filled with peace and good will.

I made this card using a piece of pink card stock and embossing folders. 
These are still the flowers from the bridal shower.  It has been
one week since I bought them.  The still look great!

I cut a piece of white CS and embossed it with the swirls.
I stamped the "thanks" inside the circle.

Its hard to tell but I embossed the pink CS with a 
second embossing folder to make lines as a background.  

I added ribbon and glued all the pieces together. 

Very easy and fast card to make.  Have a super great day!

Today's card is made using tulle and lots of glitter. 
Using an embossing folder I embossed a piece of white CS.
I covered it with Mod Podge and poured glitter on it.  The
glitter was very thick so I had to run the CS through the
embossing folder a second time so the embossed image 

would show through again. 

I tied a piece of light pink tulle in the middle of the CS
 and glued the rest to the backside of the CS.  I attached
a glitter heart and a set of doves to the middle. 

I attached the finished CS piece to a white card.  It's
now ready to be given to the bride and groom. 
Thank you for stopping by today.  Check back for the other pink cards I made for this week.

It's Monday already.  Hope you had a great weekend.  This week I will be sharing pink cards with you. Like always I have paper in my craft room I haven't put away yet so I am using all the pink paper I have laying around.  Here is the first of this weeks cards. 
I used a punch to make the flowers and touched up the
edges of the petals with silver/gray ink. 

The saying is a stamp from CTMH. 

The middle of the flower is an embellishment from Recollections. 

May you have happy day filled with love and laughter.

It's Friday!!  Yeah.  Any big plans for the weekend?  Hope you find time to do some crafting. 
 Here is a card I made using inks to make my own background paper.  I started with a white piece of CS and ended with a colorful background to stamp on.  
Using my sponges I inked the CS with pinks, purples and greens.  
I used a CTMH stamp set to add the swirls and the saying. 

For the inside of the card I did the same thing but left
the inside white for the saying.  
Enjoy your weekend!!  Hope to see you back next week.
