Christmas, A Little Different

I am loving this color combination for Christmas! I signed up for a card swap where the theme is non-tradidtional colors for Christmas so I started playing around to see what I might make for it. I think this is it! The stamps are from the Holiday Magic set which I can already tell will be one of my favorites for the holidays this year; the stamps are gorgeous. The papers are a combination of the green and coral from the Brights Stack and the brown is from the Neutrals Stack. I stamped the tree with Hint of Pesto, and tied a bit of Brown Scrappers Floss around the front. Definitely not traditional Christmas colors, but it looks great!

Stacked Cupcakes

I love these cupcakes! It is actually a single cupcake from the For All Seasons stamp set that I masked to make a stack of them. I used some white Liquid Applique for the frosting, so it is fluffy. The paterned paper is from the A Little Whimsy pad. The papers in this pad are very cool. The paterns are fun and the colors are bright and cheery; a lot of fun to work with!

I got into a COTM swap on a Yahoo group that I am in, and this is the card that I made to send to my partner...

I love the little chick! It is from the Little Friends stamp set. Instead of coloring the chick, I stamped it on yellow paper cut it out and pieced it on top. It looks really cool because it adds a little bit of texture and relief to it as well.

Getting Started Again

After finally dusting off my stamp stuff, I have been doing a lot of stamping lately! It is so nice to be making stuff again. With the holidays just around the corner I have been working on a few things for Halloween. Here is one of the cards I made . . .
The stamp is from the Happy Haunting stamp set, which is one of my favorites! The swirly stamp in the background is from Flourishes. To give it a little sparkle I put some Black Stickles on the pumpkin's eyes and on the flowers in the background. The card was so simple to make, and I love the way it looks.
