Triple Snowflakes

My stamping time has been very limited the past few days.  I don’t like that.  I thought I’d have some time yesterday morning, but that didn’t work out.  Why does it always take so much longer to wrap Christmas presents than I think it will?  I thought it would take me about an hour-and-a-half, and three-and-a-half hours later I was finally finishing up.  Granted, I was also doing laundry, coordinating the 2nd grade teachers’ gifts, checking up on the painters who are working on the outside of our house, and the countless other things us stay-at-home moms do all day.  But still…it took all morning!  And I was supposed to have stamping time in there.  Oh well, that’s the way it goes it sometimes!  At least I got all of the Christmas presents wrapped, right.

Triple Flakes

I wanted to play along with the challenge at the Paper Players for this week.  The challenge is to make a clean and simple project featuring snowflakes.

I used the sketch at Mojo Monday for my card.

Simple and Sweet Snowflakes

I needed to make a couple of quick and easy note cards to put in a couple of customer orders today.  I was able to whip these up in just a few minutes.  These little cards are 3″x3″.  Stampin’ Up sells the cutest little square envelopes to go with this size.

A Shiny, Sparkly Snowflake

All That GlimmersWhen I saw the inspiration picture at the Moxie Fab blog this week, I was inspired and knew I had to play along.

When I saw the beautiful tray, I thought of the Brushed Silver card stock, which I haven’t pulled out in a LONG time.  It’s so pretty, I really should use it more.  I embossed the medallion in the background with vanilla embossing powder (I wish SU carried this color) and then used silver and champagne glimmer paper for the snowflake.  I embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder.  This was a fun card to make because it is so over the top for me.

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed Medley Patterns

Here’s another Christmas card for you.  I used my two favorite patterns from the Festival of Prints dsp stack on this one.  I apologize for the poor photo quality.  I had to take a picture of this one at night with a flash, and I am just not a good enough of a photographer to take good pictures without natural light.  Maybe someday!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  We had a super busy one here.  Thanks for stopping by!

A Snowflake Medallion

I love the sketch on the Retro Sketches site this week, so with the little time I had to play today, I decided to use this sketch.

This simple card took a long time to make.  I’d get one step done and the laundry buzzer would go off.  I’d come back and forget what I was going to do for the next step.  I was not a good multi-tasker today.  🙂

I hope you enjoy your Sunday!  Thanks for stopping by!

I Know It’s Way Too Early for This, But…

I know it’s way too early for Christmas cards, but I’ve had these Christmas papers, stamps and dies staring at me for a few weeks now since we pre-ordered from the Holiday catalog.  And when I saw the sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site and the banner challenge at The Paper Players site, I just instantly knew what I wanted to do with it.  And that so rarely happens to me.

So you see, I couldn’t help but make a Christmas card today.

I covered the snowflake with Dazzling Diamonds glitter and the Very Vanilla looking card stock is actually the Shimmery White card stock — I just can’t get it to shimmer for the camera.

This was a fun sketch and it was fun to make a square card again.  I don’t make many of them.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
