Some Christmas cards

Here are some pictures of some of my Christmas cards for this year. Been lazy these past weeks and haven't posted much. Got to get back into it.

My cards use stuff from Anna Griffin and PAPERWISH'S.

Almost forgot this one. It is  one from Paperwish's and is layered. The border is using a embossing folder i believe is from Darcy. The top card is also a layered one from Paper Wish's.

These one's I made to send to SAS4KIDS. I made two of 3 of them and just one of the 3d snowman. 
That's all for tonight. Had a eye shot today so only seeing out of one right now Hopefully will see better tomorrow.

Here are a couple of cards made lately. One is a sympathy card and one is a challenge card.
This is  a new embossing folder! Love how it makes a nice insert for your stamping. The stamps are Ginak's.

Ok this one is a Christmas one using things from PAPERWISHES.

I was playing around with some stuff and thought i would try making some bookmarks with some new distress inks from Tim holtz.
Same colors but three different types of card stock. I like the first one and it use's shinny stock,second one is like a soft and light thin paper(not sure what you call it) third one is regular card stock. Here is another view of them.
 I think i am all caught up for now.
Have a great day! 


Here is my card for this month challenge. I did have some trouble with it but decided to cut out the digi and mount it on the brown background paper. Just one of those days that stuff just didn't want to cooperate,lol.
 I used my water color pencils with it.  Added the ring and some twin to the top.  Not good at cutting out things,lol.


Here is a card I made for a friend's birthday.
  This is a new folder by Darcy and i love it. The flower is a stamp by Stamp'nup that I won from someone. Love this stamp.

Here is my challenge card for paper ala mode at the outlawz! I used Tim Holtz distress inks.
spiced marmalde,barn door,vintage photo, and mustard seed. The stamp set is from Stampin'up Autumn feast. It is an old set.
Enjoy the colors of fall. Not in any hurry for it to show up!!!


Here is my take on the ff on the challenge. We got to pick from 4 themes, I chose NATIONAL LIGHTHOUSE DAY!  I scored the top and bottom of the card but not sure you can see it.
Hope it shows up some.

Here is my take on the Twisted Thursday challenge at the OUTLAWZ! I made a bookmark for my uncle use birthday is later this month. Was playing with some new distress inks and will show those later when i get a photo of them. But this one has cupcakes on it and a sentiment on the back.

 The three flavors of icing are chocolate, lemon and strawberry. This is and old stampn up stamp.

And the back!

This is my case card for the Outlawz challenge CLEAN AND SIMPLE. I seemed to like doing these kinds of cards more then any others. And of course my camera decided that the battery was gona go then so sorry for it being a bit fuzzy.
And dark. Guess it is going to be one of those days. Only  a little after nine when i took the picture and already 80 on the porch!


WOW cutting it close on this one,lol. Just got it done last nite. One of the challenge's was  VINYL RECORD.  So here is my card for this one at the outlawz. They are all Dazzles from PAPER WISHES
 I think it makes a nice Birthday card.   


I am terrible at doing sketch challenge's,lol. But gave it a try.
I'm not real happy with the happy birthday, but i had it in my stash for a long time so used it. Should have used a smaller one......... 


This is just a quick hello card since i made up some more of the Bokeh up. The flowers are from a Debbie Moore stamp set i got in a magazine.
 I really like this style and might make some more of them.

This is a little birthday card. The cupcake is a from awhile ago and now i can't seem to find it on my computer. I am thinking it is from Limited Runs. ummm will have to go looking for it now.
   This one is precolored. The little stamp is from PAPERWISH'S.


Here is my cas card for the OUTLAWZ CAS CHALLENGE FOR THIS WEEK.
I also made this card for a card swap in another group.

I used the Bokeh effect. Using three colors of ink then using white with a circle template to make the spots on it.

Here are my cards I made for one of my card groups.

All these cards use Michael Strong stamps. This one has the coffee cups. The thanks a latte is by Friskars.

 On this one i used the Bokch technique. First  

For some reason i am having trouble staying connected to the internet so had to upload the last 3 while i could.
Will try again tomorrow and see if it is working better.

This is my CLEAN AND SIMPLE card for the cas challenge at the outlawz. It is also in black and white. This little stamp was found at a stamp store. I stamped it 3 times on a ATC card then mounted it on a black background. Added a black flower and a Hello.


This is my card for the FESTIVE FRIDAY CHALLENGE over at the Outlawz. We got to choose for a list of 4 things to make our card. I had an old camera digi so i choose the camera for mine. I did it in black and white. The background is a doll paper free download from a doll house site. The Happy Birthday is a little stamp from Paper wishes that i use quite often.

This is my card for my hubby this year. It was really hard coming up with something this year.After having a long dry spell it feels good to finally get back into making some cards again. Made a couple earlier this month too.  The car picture is an old download from a long time ago so not sure where i got it.
 Also made a similar one for my son in law.

This is another challenge at the OUTLAWZ. This week we had to make an ATC card. These are cute little cards that measure 2 1/2 by 3 1/2. The stamps i used are from GinaK's  stamp set BOTANICALS. I used Tim Holtz distressed ink Vintage Photo.
The flower is from my stash.
Have a great day! 


This is for the Progressive freebie at the OUTLAWZ. I did a thinking of you card. The top and bottom boarder stamp is by HOTP(HOT OF THE PRESS) and it can be found at the PAPERWISHES SITE.

Here is my card using a digi from Michael Strong that is on his blog. I did a card and just tried to make it look like a sunset in both of these cards.

Here is my second one with the window.
 I like it better. I have had the window for awhile and have finally made something i like from it. I added a few dazzles to it for the corners at top and in the middle of the window.
And this is the digi he gave us to use.

This is my card for at the OUTLAWZ TWISTED THURSDAY. It started out as a tag or banner as I think these are called.
I received a big book of them like you get for scrapbooking but this is all kraft colored and lots of different shapes and size's. Forgot I had it till today when looking for something else,lol. Well I made a card for my hubby who's birthday is coming up on the first of Feb.

I used a paperclip to hold it closed for the picture. The feather and trim all Dazzles from paperwishe's and so is the stamp. The stamp is on a set of feather stamps and the papers are from the ones that have feathers also, just forget the name of them.

The inside is also from paperwishe's, the happy birthday is a stamp that I have had for a long time. The sentiment outline is from a kit I got from paperwish's .

That's it.

This is our sketch for this month at MICHAEL STRONG group.
 And here is my take on it. The little hearts are one of Mikes mini set of 4 stamps.

I used gold and a burgundy embossing powder on the hearts.

Here is the PROGRESSIVE FREEBIE CHALLENGE at the OUTLAWZ. This is just so pretty and can be done in so many colors. It was given to us By Sandi and her is a link to her site.  Here is my card. I did it up in 3 colors but since the printer printed them so close i could not get the blue one, the one i really liked,lol, so here it is in orange. It didn't photograph very pretty but looks nice in person.
  I scored it down each side and top and bottom but it doesn't show up very well.

This is my first card of the new year. It is a water colored stamped image. I used some water color pencils to color in the a water brush to blend. The image is a large stamp of pansies my favorite flower. It is for my mother in law.
 I used the textured side of the water colored paper. I embossed the card stock with the cane folder and layered my image on it. She will be 86.
The inside was done with some gold Dazzles and a  saying. I rounded the corners of some back card stock and put the saying on it.

Well it is snowing and raining here with high winds, so I think i will go read another book and have a hot cup of green tea with some orange slice's.

Have a great day!

Just getting into more reading and tried my hand at winning some autographed books by authors and won two. Both are cosy mysteries and new  to me. Although i did have a couple of  Cleo Coyle books but hadn't had time to read them. I won her ONCE UPON A GRIND book and loved it. Then just this past week i won one by KRISTA DAVIS  called MURDER MOST HOWL. Can't wait to read it. Right now i am reading  TRICKY TWENTY  ONE by  JANET EVANOVICH that i got for christmas. Also got  Patricia Cornwell's new one  DEPRAVED HEARTS. Hubby got me another book by Cleo Coyle. So looking forward to doing some reading.
 Both books come with recipe's also.


Here are a few of the cards i made for 2015 for Christmas.

These are made with my ANNA GRIFFIN christmas kit that i bought last year(2014), it still has lots of stuff left in it.

 The last three are made using stuff from PAPERWISHES. A little hard to photograph with the shiny cardstock,lol.

A few more christmas cards

Made a few of these with some new embossing folders,added some fed ribbons along the sides then tied in a not. another bridge card. ...
