cards and other stuff

One of the Hero Arts owls stamped alone. Letter stamps for "Be Jolly." StampIt square outline stamp and patterned paper also used.

I have a cold. Again. I haven't felt real good for a week but last night felt crummy. I took some Tylenol cold PM and that stuff knocks me out but then I feel like a zombie the next day.

I have some things to get done today too.

I have a coupon for BOGO at Yankee Candle and it expires today. Cary and I have some favorite holiday candles we burn constantly this time of year. Mistletoe and Christmas Wreath. So I do need to head to the mall quickly for those. I like to have one day to stay home but yesterday we stayed home most of the day. But we picked up my Christmas deco's from my parent's. Put up a few last night. I love enjoying this season as long as possible. I might stop at Target too and look at their decorations too. But not too long...I don't feel good and it's back to work tomorrow. Face the news about the grades I have to figure out.

Anyhow...yesterday I got 9 cards made yesterday with some of the goodies I posted about yesterday. Now I only have about 31 to go! I had fun with them. Some years I do one design and make them all the same. But I do really have fun when I mix it up. I experiment more.

Here's the cards...

Had fun with this one. Only inked one tree from Tim Holtz's stamp. Used a large StampIt rectangle stamp in a light green (very subtle). Deckle edged scissors used to cut out the tree. And my favorite part...the "star" is made from stamping the letter "o" and "i's" around it! Used an SEI clear stamp for the "under the tree."

This is an old stamp (inkadinkadoo) I've had forever. I figure skated for over 10 years so this is a favorite. I love the detail. The "Holiday Greeting and snowflake" is SEI. I added a rhinestone in the snowflake.

Played around with Tim Holtz distress inks on a scallop punched square of white cardstock. "Inked" the edges with a black sharpie. Stamped the "Santa's Coming" from SEI and added the StampIt outline square in red ink.

Tim Holtz trees. A new favorite. Stamped the trees in brown and lightly colored over with an olive colored pencil. Added stickles. Stamped the little SEI deer and used a Cosmo Cricket rub-on "Winter Wonderland." All of this done on a subtly patterned paper and mounted on cranberry cardstock.

Love these little Hero Arts Owls! Used colored pencil to hand color the details and used an SEI stamp (only inked the words not the attached snowflake). Inked the edges with olive green and mounted on a colorful patterned paper.

Here is bunch of the cards I made with the Tim Holtz tree stamp. A few other stamps used as well. Love this stamp!

Well. Off to get dressed and venture out so I can get back home and try and feel better.

Looking forward to seeing other's creations later!
