Holiday Greetings Card

Since Wednesday Stamper has an open theme this week, I thought I'd post a holiday card I made. This card is an unusual color for the Christmas season, pink (one of my favorites, could you guess?). It has ornaments cut from old wrapping paper over pink print paper, with a stamped strip on the left and a stamped greeting. The strip was stamped with lime green ink and colored with glitter glues.

I hope that you are continuing to enjoy the holiday season! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Christmas Tree ATC

I missed last week's TMTA challenge, so I wanted be sure to do this week's challenge! The theme is "under your Christmas tree".

My ATC has "peace" under my Christmas tree - the 1969 Christmas Seals show children joining hands around a Christmas tree, and below, there is a stamped dove and Christmas message. Decorative ribbon and button stars provide added embellishment. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to all!!!

Busy Holidays!

There's a lot to do at this time of year, so I haven't been posting to my blog as much as I would like. I've been spending quite a bit of time baking, which is one of my favorite things to do for the holidays. Mostly, I've been baking cookies and breads.

I thought I'd post something to make my blog look "Christmasy", so here's a Christmas card that I made. This one was very easy to complete: three "Madonna & Child" postage stamps and two red heart brads layered on red print paper over holly print paper. The stamps and red paper are both outlined with gold dimensional paint. I like to make use of those postage stamps I'm always saving! :)

Santa Claus Fest!

I made this ATC especially for Santa Claus Fest, take a look! I added 4 different holly-print papers around the edges of a tape transfer of Santa with children. The ATC is embellished with a brad holding a decorated vellum tag (I drew the holly on it) and the word "Merry" on torn paper and paper ribbon. Santa Claus Fest is great! :)
