Christmas Flower

I think this Poinsettia stamp has to be my favorite stamp this Christmas season. I stamped it twice and cut both out after coloring with a pink marker and coloring with gold glitter.
 I left one intact but the second one I cut only a couple of extra petals and placed them over the top of the bottom ones..popping them up with pop dots to give them a 3-D effect. Using my scissors,
 I curled the ends of the petals down. I also cut out the center and popped that up with pop dots.
 I used gold stickle in the middle for the flower center
The Merry Christmas Stamp came from the Christmas Tree Mouse Set.

  Have a wonderful day!

Sympathy Count Down Begins

I make all the sympathy cards for a local nursing home. When they lose one of their residents, they send one out to a family member with a personal note. The family member really appreciates getting a hand-made card with a special note. This is the time of year where they lose many residents so amongst all the Christmas cards I make, I also have to make many sympathy cards. Today I made a few to get ahead. I used the Stamping Up Ornament Punch and punched out vases out of patterned paper to make the vase for these flowers. I also stamp a lil something on the envelope to make it special as well. Thank you for stopping by! Netta

Happy Hanukkah 2009

I needed to make 7 Hanukkah cards todays and didn't have a lot of time but with a little bit of planning...I was able to get all my stamps on one acrylic block all at the same. This allowed me to ink and stamp them all at the same time...which saved me time later as I didn't have to do them individually. A little bit of brown and yellow coloring with a Stamping Up marker and a little bit of yellow stickel glitter...I was almost done! The bow was tied with both yellow and brown ribbon at the same time and held down by a glue dot. Bling in the corner topped it off. The whole scene was matted with black, yellow and brown cardstock. Very quick card to make...longest time is the glitter drying time. Stamps I used: Close to my Heart: Jewish Remembrance Autumn Leaves: Stampology Studio G: #VS4195
