2010 Christamas Cards

For the first time in YEARS, I've not done just ONE card. Usually, I buy a stamp set I love & make all my cards from that stamp.  This year, I made a bunch of different ones.  I'm not sure that I like this way of doing things (what if next year I make something like these but a little different & then send it to the same people & they actually NOTICE and think I'm a freak?!?!)  I also waited WAY too long & had WAY too big of a list.  Of course, when I cut it back a little, the people I cut were the ones who actually SENT ME a card and now I'm making MORE cards to send back to those people.  ARGH!!!

Anyway, this idea was STOLEN from Angie.  She made a cute card w/this image & a tag & white ribbon.  I LOVED the idea of the snowflakes behind the image too!!  Stamps from Ippity.  I versamarked the stamp & then colored the birds with a maker (can't wait for my Cherry Cobbler marker I'm hoping Santa brings me for Christmas).  Then I heat embossed.  I made the crinkle ribbon from seam binding & glimmer mist.  LOVE this ribbon!!!

Rudholph the red nosed reindeer!

This was for Angie's Reindeer swap.  I LOVE this stamp.  It's soooo cute!!!  I forgot to stickle the nose before I mailed them off but I think they still look cute!!  And I love the Jilly Bean Soup paper.  I'm trying not to hoard it but.....

Last of the TH Inspired Cards

This is my FAVORITE card of all that we did.  I LOVE this snowman & am going to have to get him (although I did get the die to cut him out, I still don't have the stamp).  I just love everything about this card!

TH Inspired Tag

 This one was pretty simple & easy.  All one stamp, colored Santa w/fired brick, added glue & flower soft.  Done & DONE!  Oh yeah, stickles on the beard & fur.
