Christmas card auditions

I've been trying out a few ideas for this year's Christmas card. I just got the "Greeting Card Kids" stamp set from Stampin' Up and I am loving it. So I'm leaning heavily toward this card. I would have to modify the flower though. It sits pretty high. It would be a pain to mail. :)

Stamps: Greeting Card Kids and Fundamental Phrases - SU

Ink: StazOn Black and Distressing ink - Tea Stain

Ribbon: Unknown

Coloring: PrismaColor Pencils

Embossing: Textile Texture - Cuttlebug

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip & Pear Pizzaz - SU

I made the rose by punching a strip of Cherry Cordial CS with the scallop border punch. I then used my distressing ink to age it a bit. Then I crinkled the paper strip, wrapped it around itself and roughed it up a bit. ;) Then I adhered it with aqua glue.

Not too hard. I might have to tweak a few thing for mass production, but other than that I think it might work well as this year's Christmas card!

Paper: SU - solid cardstock, Unknown patterned

I've got some great new stuff coming from SU so I can't wait! I am really looking forward to making Halloween crafts. I'll be posting things as I finish them.

Back in the saddle...or on the broomstick, whichever the case may be!

I finally got to do some card making!! Yaaa!

We have pretty well settled in the new house and every once in a while I get the chance to actually look at my crafting stuff! Then a miracle of miracles. I got the chance to work on Halloween party invites:

I got the inspiration for this card from this blog: Fantastical World of Holidays

The poem reads:

She weaved a web of silver thread,

a doily for her date.

A little fly with big brown eyes,

quickly approaching fate.


Stamps: Inkadinkadoo
Paper: Stampin' Up
Ink: Brilliance
Spider webs: Hand drawn with silver glitter pen
Embossing: Clear embossing powder for spider and webs

I was so happy to get to craft. My next project will be favors and things for the party. So, here's hoping I will have another post very soon with more to come!!
