It’s a Cookie Cutter Christmas!

After a long hiatus I am so thankful to be blogging today. My work hours have eased up a bit giving me a little bit of free time to paper craft. I love making cards and it’s like therapy for me and probably cheaper. I’m not quite sure my husband would agree but that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 

Today’s light hearted Christmas card was made using Stampin’ Up’s Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set which is my favorite from the new occasions catalog. I used crumb cake card stock along with real red and whisper white. It was my first time to use the new 3D cable knit sweater embossing folder and I fell in LOVE! The dimension is incredible. I can’t wait to demo that folder in class. 

I stamped the reindeer in basic black on crumb cake cardstock and colored his face  with a crumb cake marker. I used chocolate chip for his antlers with a few crumb cake highlights. I colored the nose with real red and topped with the fine tip glue pen to give it a little dimension. I cut and layered the reindeer on whisper white and real red mats using the layering circle framelits. Talk about adorable, the card has a classic simple vibe which I love. 

So let me see your Christmas projects. I’d love to see what you are working on. In the mean time. Happy crafting and I hope to see you soon. 

Definitely Dahlia Thank You Card

Good morning everyone! I hope this Labor Day finds you relaxing some where peaceful and not working. We will be headed out to the river in a little while to make some memories with the kids but first I wanted to show you this CAS card. It came together in less than ten minutes and satisfied my need to make something this morning. I used the Crafty boot challenges sketch this morning and already had a color combo in my head. The color combo was Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Soft Sky. I hope you enjoy this quick simple card as much as I do. It seemed like such a soft fall color combo. Well enjoy your holiday weekend and make something crafty!
