Mug Shot

Ok, I'm just going to put this out there even though it's not my favorite. This pattern has been around for a long time and I got mine here. I'm not exactly sure what I had in mind for this to look like, but it is what it is. You might be starting to notice a theme here. I've been working on gift card holders. I've also been using the stamp set called C1371 Holiday Jingle p. 11. The paper pack is called Creative Basics Jingle Collection (p. 30). The mug is cut from white daisy cardstock and sponged with Blush. The other stamp pad color is Juniper. This pattern can also be used to stick in a packet of hot chocolate. I taped it shut in a way that the gift card wouldn't go all the way down. I hope you like it.

Quick Post/Simple Card

The kids are needing my attention so this will be a quick post. I didn't get the light right on the outside of the card. I apologize. The actual paper can be seen better here on page 29. The paper is from the Aspen pack. I mixed three different stamp sets for this card.

C1371 Holiday Jingle p. 11
D1243 Peace on Earth p. 71
D1171 New Fallen Snow p. 43

Other items: White Daisy Organdy ribbon, Prisma Glitter and Outdoor Denim stamp pad.
The card design is a pop-up card so I thought it would be cute to use that space to put a gift card. If you have questions you can use the comment section. Thanks so much for stopping by.

You are Close to My Heart,

p.s. Edited to add a side view.

Holiday Jingle

I can't believe that it's almost time for another card workshop! Before we know it Christmas will be here. This card was inspired by I've posted her video at the end of this blog entry. Please be easy on me :0) This is my sloppy copy and I was too tired to make it again. All products used for this card are from Close to My Heart with the exception of a glitter gel pen. The paper is called Jingle; the stamp set is Holiday Jingle and did you notice the cool brad? It's from a set of brads called Twinkle Brads. Well, enjoy. It's time for me to go figure out what's for supper. Any fast, easy ideas?
