12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 4 – Special Delivery

day4_Mrs_Santa1Good afternoon and welcome to day four of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! I apologize for the delay but for the last few days I have been having internet access problems so today’s post is late.

Today I bring you another card I created.  I used a digi from Tiddly Inks.  I love these stamps. She has a bunch and she is having a great sale on both clear and digi stamps so take a peek.  I used my Silhouette to create the shape of the box and used the print and cut feature so that my image was printed directly on the cardstock and then cut in the shape you see. Then I colored up the image with my copics.

day4_Mrs_Santa2Ok and let’s talk a minute about paper hoarders, yes, I am guilty of charge and I find that I especially like to hoard my Christmas papers like my friend Ashley. She and I vow each year that we have enough and won’t buy anymore and what? They seem to jump in our carts and home they come. Total sucker for pretty paper especially pretty Christmas paper. Enough of that rant. That said, this paper I used for this card is one of those highly hoarded by me.  It is called Nordic Pines by Bazzill Basics. Oh my goodness, all the paper in this pad are gorgeous. I mean it, every sheet is gorgeous. So I had a hard time cutting a sheet (baby steps).  I matted it on a cream cardstock and used Stampin Up paper for the card base. I decided to use some kraft envelopes in my stash since they match this paper so nicely.

day4_Mrs_Santa3My props were holiday table runners and a little tree I usually put on a shelf in the living room.

day4_Mrs_Santa4I put matching cream cardstock inside for the person to write their greetings since the card has a black base. I also used small pieces of coordinating paper attached to the corners of the paper for added interest.

I hope you like this card as much as I do. Even if I did have to cut a piece of my prized stash!!

Sending blessings your way!


Make a Card Monday #1:Happy Birthday Wish with Tiddly Inks digi


Hello and happy Monday! It’s cold outside here but the sun is shining bright so all is well.  I had a fun weekend. On Saturday, I spent the whole day, crafting with my girlfriends up in Groveland.  I loaded up a bunch of images to color for cards, cutfiles from my Silhouette to assemble and my Project Life album (you know I’m trying to catch up!). I brought my Beats Pill and we listened to Christmas music all day. Yes, you heard me correctly, Christmas music in November. I say this with my head held high!  I love this time of year and I enjoy the music and let’s face it, 25 days of Christmas music is hardly enough. We had great fun and I actually accomplished a lot.

Enough about my weekend, I just wanted to share with you a new card I made. It’s a birthday card. I created it with this cute Tiddly Inks digi. I of course colored her with my Copics and used Wink of Stella on her wings for that magical sparkle.  And I added sequins for even more sparkle.  Let’s face it, a girl has to have sparkle.


It coordinated nicely with some envelopes I bought from Paper Source so less work for me and more time to play.

Well I hope you had a great weekend and I look forward to a fun week.

Have a blessed day friends!
