This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Some more Christmas cards...............

This one is one of the workshop Make-N-Takes for this month. My Stampin' Up! "Dasher" stamp is really getting a workout lately. I love this little guy! No glitz this time. All supplies from Stampin' Up!. I chose the casual colors of Ruby Red, Kraft and Basic black card stock. A little strip of the Holiday Lounge designer paper gives it some pizazz. The ribbon is Kraft Taffeta. I used a white gel pen to add some faux stitching and some doodley-dots. The little Christmas greeting is from a retired set, "Best Yet".



This one is so simple. All I used is Stampin' Up!'s Real Red and Whisper White card stock. Christmas Cocoa Specialty designer paper, and the Ornament Punch, all from the Holiday Mini Catalog that you can see here.



The background was made with a CB embossing folder and some silver wired ribbon from my scrapping stash. I accomplished the faded effect on the embossing by putting a piece of chipboard in the middle of the folder, causing it to embossing deeper where the shape was placed. Easy-peasy!
I'll have some more to post tomorrow. Thanks for visiting!

Your stitching looks real in the top card!! Great job on that! Love the red color combo as well. I bet your customers were so happy with the projects!

Nice!!! The Dasher card is perfect!!! I like that you left it clean looking, it makes such a statement. Those colors are great together! As for the second card, I am blown away by your faded embossing. I am going to have to give that a try! Sounds like such a simple step, but the effect is tremendous!
