Christmas Twofer

Hi Everyone,

I really need to get going with my Christmas cards....and then I got the inspiration from my friend Rosi, who designs for 52CCT.  And then it all fell into place. 52 CCT might not like my little splash of green, since there theme is black and white....but then, they don't have to. I like it and it also fits the Time out challenge....

I love this pretty Tim Holtz cover plate. It kind of makes quick Christmas cards, if you don't count poking out all those little die cuts, that get stuck in there....Besides that, you can get several cards out of this one, as you are left with all those cute little die cuts. Of course I had to used them for a second card and I still have lots of left overs....

The sentiment is by STAMPlorations.

And here is my second card:

I used some matching Washi tape and lined the die cuts up. Attached them to the Kraft card base. Added some hemp twine and the tiny tag. The little sentiment is by Papertrey. Also added three litle glitzy red dots. Can't live without some color....

Happy Christmas Card Making!

I love how you did the first one and I found it so amazing that by using the cut out parts you created another wonderful card using them. Both these cards are awesome Christmas designs.

What a great coverplate and I think it's as versatile as it is lovely. Wouldn't this qualify for the Twofer challenge-Critters, as well?

I love the splash of green on your first card. What a great cover plate and all those little die cuts you can use again. I hopped over from 52 Card Throwdown and had to see your card up close.

What a great use of that cover die and yes it does make a great card. And you could get so many cards from the 1 cut. Thanks for playing along with us at 52CCT.

The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

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
