Bottle Brush Sketch

Yay, finally time to stamp!  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, we sure did!  I can never put my Christmas stamps away right after the holidays.  So here is a card for this week's sketch by Jen Mitchell at Freshly Made Sketches!

Here is my card using images from Hero Arts "Family and Friends" Christmas stamp set...

I embossed the tree in white over some snowflake patterned paper.  Added some red Liquid Pearls and Stampendous Crystal Snow glitter.  Used Cornish Heritage Farms "Gingham Backgrounder" stamped with black ink onto red paper for the "flannel" background :).

Bella's Balloons

A little time to make a birthday card for the girls' friend Bella!  I thought a pastel, un-Christmas look would be good for another December birthday girl (I know the feeling!).

I used balloons from PTI's Birthday Style set and a sentiment from one of the Think Big Favorites mini sets.  Embossed the sentiment and then made the card a chalkboard theme (good for hiding any white or sequin glue smudges, too)!!

Icebreaker Pig

Secret Santa-ing continues at work, and my giftee loves pigs...and Icebreaker candies.  So I combined the two...

The face was made with stitched circle dies from Simon Says stamp, black twine, and some gems/acrylic dots.  The feet are pink ribbon with bits of black ribbon glued on top.

I red line taped 3 Icebreaker containers together for the body!

The tag is made with some oldie but goodie stamps from A Muse (pig), Saltbox Studio (fence), tree (Stampin' Up), and Mixed Messges (PTI).

 That's all folks, ;) (rolled rose Die-Namic, hee)!
