Happiest Season Ever

I do love Christmas. The twinkling of lights surrounded by snow (yes, I like snow during the Christmas holiday); Christmas carols; watching classic (black and white) Christmas movies; sitting by the fire and listening to Nutcracker Suite.

This is a simple card, with a bit of glitter to dress it up a bit.

Stamps - Festival of Trees, More Merry Messages
Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow
Accessories - Scallop Trim border punch, Dazzling Details (regular, Cherry Cobbler and Silver Sparkle)

White Christmas Flurries

I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest. (I just love "window shopping" on Pinterest.) I followed it to Cathy's Craft Room, where she posted cards from a card swap. I finally discovered the card that inspired me was made by Wanda Williams.

I stamped the snowman twice. The first time was directly to the Smoky Slate; the second was on Whisper White. I then cut out the white snowman and attached him on top of the Smoky Slate one. This way, I didn't need to worry about cutting out his arms.

Stamps - White Christmas
Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Dazzling Details, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder

Lovely Summer Trees

The last of this Lovely Trees series. As I hope you have been able to see, it is easy to change the look (or season) of the trees. The leaves were easily created by using the Stampin' Write markers and placing random dots along the branches.

I hope you've enjoyed this series as much as I did creating the cards.

Stamps - Lovely As A Tree
Cardstock - Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla
Ink - Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz
