Christmas Card Set - Reindeer Crossing

 Hello!  I recently got a new Christmas stamp set and I used it for this set of cards.  There are a couple stamps that from other sets.

The stamp is Close to My Heart Reindeer Crossing, the Tree and sentiment on the deer card are from Inkadinkado and Power Poppy.  Most of the papers are actually from Close to My Heart also.  It is unusual for me to stick to one brand for the entire card!

I did search Pinterest before making these cards so I have a few links of cards that I used as inspiration.  I did make a double of one of these cards so in total, I made 6 cards in an afternoon, I was very pleased with that!

Ideas from:

I would love to enter these challenges!

Ruldoph Days November Challenge, Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes, SimonSaysStamp’s Wednesday Anything Goes, The Card Concept’s Holiday Home. (I was inspired by the check pattern. Clean and Layered style.)


Christmas Card Count: 45

Goal: 55. I’m getting there!

Foil Mirror Paper - EASY Christmas Cards

Hello!  I made a bunch of cards over the weekend. I just photographed these so I could share them. 

I recently was at Michael’s and bought some of the foil mirror cardstock they had on sale.  This design was such an EASY way to make a flashy Christmas card.  I just glued a piece of the foil cardstock on a piece of white, and then embossed the whole thing.

The stamps were all a mix of old and new sets.  If you are interested in a particular stamp, let me know and I will label it.  I did decorate the insides but did not photograph them.  

Thanks for visiting. I will be back with more Christmas cards soon!

Cat Christmas Card

 Hello everyone!  I hope you are well.  I am so totally behind in my Christmas card goal that I am not reporting the numbers today.  I just need to get more done!

I made a couple of this card.  The main stamp from Technique Junkies was stamped over a Brusho background.  I then stamped the background paper from some tiny holiday light stamps from a Kitchen Sink Stamps set.  

It was a simple process, but resulted in what I think is a super fun card. I also have some more cards using this stamp in process. I love it because my cats totally could be pictured here. I am a bit scared to put up the tree this year, because last year they had the excuse of being kittens.  This year, they just may have bad behavior!  Lol.

Have a great day!

(I am entering this in SimonSaysStamp’s Wednesday Christmas challenge.)

Sunflower Fall Friendship Card

  Hello!  I am feeling a fall vibe today and wanted to make a card using sunflowers. 

I stamped out the sunflower from Bubble Wrap, Lattice and Flowers sheet onto yellow cardstock. I did sponge some brown around the edge after I fussy cut it out.  

My background is made with Brusho powder in Sandstone. I stamped my sentiment from Inspirational Plate #2 and then added some copper colored Nuvo drops to finish it off. 

Thank you so much for visiting today! I know from personal experience that time is hard to come by right now, so I appreciate that you spend a few minutes here today. And double thanks if you left a comment. I will be swinging by blogs later this afternoon.

I’m off to rake some leaves!  Stay well!

December Narcissus

  Hello and don’t mind the title of this post too much. Happy November!  But since Halloween has now passed, it is high time for me to get moving on Christmas cards.  This stamp is called December Narcissus.

I colored this simply with markers, then die cut it out.  I layered it over some Christmas papers and added a sentiment from the large Inspirations Phrases set.  I did use a little corner punch on that sentiment strip and I think that turned out cute.  (As always, I am able to offer my coupon code SAVE10HEIDI for 10% off your order at the I Brake for Stamps store.)

Have a wonderful day and keep on stamping!
