Snowflake Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone,

did you all have a Merry Christmas? I hope you did. We enjoyed our Christmas. We celebrate on the 24th in the evening, as is customary in Germany. My husband cooked something delicious and the kids and I decorated the tree. Yesterday we had another delicious meal at my sister's house, getting our families together. 

But back to card making....
I want to share some Christmas cards I made a while ago:

For this one I used that 3D embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers. The snowflake is by Papertrey and the sentiment is by Neat&Tangled. I also ripped up some washi tape and put it onto the card stock, before I ran it through my big shot. Added some thin beading wire with beads and sequins

I am linking up with following challenges:

QKR Stampede Challenge #171 -  Snowmen or Snowflakes
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Make it Sparkle

My second card is quite similar, just kind of a down-scaled version of the first.

And here is one more card from this year's Christmas production. I made a similar one, that you might remember, you can see it HERE.

Another left-over from an Advent calendar I yet have to share with you..... All used dies are by Memory Box, the sentiment is by Neat&Tangled. I spritzed the background with various inks and added some sequins.

I am linking this up with the current Memory Box challenge - Season's Greetings.

Well, sadly its still too warm here in NJ - no chance of any snow falling soon.

Happy Stamping!

Very festive. Love anything blue and white and the first two are no exception. The addition of the wire on the first is a fun touch. Glad to know washi looks so good when embossed with those 3D folders. Yowza. Love the colorful, bright and happy 3rd card. Just so much fun.
Glad your Christmas was joyous, hoping your New Year is even better.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
