12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 6 – All Warm and Cozy card

babyshowercrop1Good morning and welcome to day six of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! I am so happy. I had an amazing weekend. I spent all day Saturday and evening with my amazing girlfriends for a crop and Baby shower for my friend Ashley.  Oh it was so much fun and the food…oh the food.. so much goodness. Two crock pots that were filled with our lunch and dinner meals.  We had music, balloons and tea with yummy desserts.  The best part of all was meeting baby Rosie.  Oh, when I held her it pushed that little happy button inside me and reminded me of how sweet the feel of a sleeping baby is in my arms. It was a cold rainy day so what better way then to spend it with close friends working on our craft projects.

I encourage it because, as much I would like to say my posts will be up promptly at 9am, that’s not gonna happen all the time. But if you subscribe, you will get an email as soon as I post it.  Enough shameless promotions here and onto my card for today.

day6_All_Warm_Cozy1So today’s card is just what I need today. Very faint snow showers are occurring with 21 degree temp.  Yuck. So this card which I call ‘All Warm and Cozy’ is perfect for today.  I knew I had to have this stamp. It’s another Stampendous stamp and I stamped it and then colored it with my Copics and then mounted on a side folding landscape card base. I didn’t feel the need for pattern paper. I have a philosophy that if the image has a lot of detail coloring and requires more effort, then I don’t want to take the focus away from it with too much stuff.

day6_All_Warm_Cozy2This image reminds of this Inn I go to once a year with my girlfriends to work on our crafts and have ‘girl time’. They have a lot of fireplaces and you can sit down and look out the window or read your book.  So perhaps that’s another reason this stamp made its way into my shopping cart.

day6_All_Warm_Cozy3I used Wink of Stella on the fireplace to make it look like a crackling fire.  I zoomed in and hope you can see it on the photo.  I simply love this image and plan on using it for more projects.  I used the same wreath prop as before to display the card. I hope you enjoyed this post and I need to go get cracking on another project so I will have something for day 7!

Have a blessed day friends!


12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 5 – Snowman card

day5_Snowman1Good morning and welcome to day five of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! Today I bring you two snowman cards.  This is a new Stampendous stamp called Snowman Woodland. It comes with a scene and everything but I chose to crop the snowman to make him look like he is looking through a window.

day5_Snowman2Fort the first card I used Echo Park’s Tis the Season paper and the second one I used Crate Paper’s Peppermint.  I enjoyed using pink which is not the typical holiday color but after I put it together I really like it. I bought a bunch of glitter paper on sale weeks back at Michaels’ with my friend Joan and Cathy with the intention of using it with my Silhouette.  So I cut the window out of glitter paper on my Silhouette. I use my Silhouette for so much. It has truly been one of the best purchases I have made. Endless possibilities.

day5_Snowman3Here is a picture of them side by side. Don’t you love the pink? I love it? It just might not go out to anyone.  Oh did I just type that? I meant, careful consideration will be taken before mailing it off.

day5_Snowman4For the inside I used strips of the coordinating paper. I used Stampin Up cardstock for the base.

Props today…just my shelfs in my craft room and then the last two photos I put them on the carpet.

Tomorrow I am going to an all day crop with my girlfriends and going to meet my dear friend’s new baby Rosie. So I will have more crafting time which I feel I can use this time of year when the holiday starts to whip me around like a rag doll.

Have a blessed weekend and I will be back on Monday with day 6 of my  12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts.
