12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 12 – Holiday Teacups Card & Bookmark

day12_teacup_trio_cardand_mGood afternoon and welcome to day twelve of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! What? I did it.  This has been a fun challenge. On one of the busiest months of the year, I managed to post different projects daily for 12 days.  No easy task in this house.  So I am thrilled and so happy you rode on this wild journey with me.

I officially will be on vacation beginning December 23 but until then I will have a few posts here and there. In the new year, I will resume a regular schedule with some new blog series.

day12_teacup_trio_cardand_2Today’s project was a Teacup holiday card and bookmark. You know how much I love teacups and this stamp set from Flourishes was mine once they put them in their shop.


I used Stampin Up cardstock as my card base and ‘Tis the Season’ patterned paper from Echo Park.  I included a small strip inside for continuity.  I wasted no paper and used the remaining of 6×6 paper to make a matching bookmark.  I love the end result and no scraps to throw away was a bonus.

I hope you have a blessed day and Happy Hanukkah to my friends that celebrate today.


12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 10 – Not Even a Mouse card

day10_not_even_a_mouse1Good afternoon and welcome to day ten of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! Yeah, it’s Friday! Happy day! Today we are going to go buy our Christmas Tree when Leao gets home from work.

day10_not_even_a_mouse2Today’s card features the cutest digi from Mo’s Digital Pencil. It is called, ‘Not Even a Mouse’.  I print and cut it using my Silhouette. I chose this pattern paper from Authentique again. The soft muted colors reminded me of a sweater. The little mouse looks so cozy . I used a Kraft paper as the card base with a top fold.

day10_not_even_a_mouse3I pulled the colors from the paper for my inspiration for coloring with my Copics.  I love tea and tea cups so this image just had to be mine.  I also used some collage paper on this card that I have had for years. It’s a pad of 20 sheets with handmade papers in various colors and patterns. I found one that matched the color in the pattern paper and used it to mat the image. I added pop dots for dimension and bling on the bottom for balance.

day10_not_even_a_mouse4Inside I put a strip of the patterned paper for continuity. No greeting or sentiment on the inside. Just letting the image speak for itself. I used my foot stool in my craft room for my prop.

I hope you have a blessed weekend! I will be back on Monday with Day 11.


12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 8 – Joy card

day8_Joy1Good morning and welcome to day eight of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! Today I am bringing you another holiday card.  This image is a digi from Mo’s Digital Pencil.  I believe the name of it is Henry with Wreath. I just love this one. I am always on the hunt for more images of boys since I have an enormous collection of images of girls.  So it is truly a treat to color up boy images.  I used my Copics to color this image and Kraft paper as the base for the card.

day8_Joy2The pattern paper I used on this card is an old one I have from Authentique called ‘Tradition’. I love the muted colors in this paper pack. They lend themselves nicely to masculine cards.  I pulled the color palette from the patterned paper when choosing my Copics.

day8_Joy3I apologize for the poor lighting today. It’s so dark outside this morning and I didn’t set up any additional lighting.  I zoomed in to show you the Wink of Stella I used on the berries and pom pom but I think it’s not coming through well. You’ll have to trust me this time! I once again used the greetings sticker sheet from Little Yellow Bicycle for the ‘Joy’ sentiment. It matched perfectly.

day8_Joy4The inside of the card I rounded the corners on the journaling sheet and added a strip of coordinating paper to the top.  I like switching things up with top-folding cards. I left it blank inside for personal greetings.

Today’s prop is a little winter house that I put on my television stand in our living room.

Have a blessed day friends!
