Holiday Cards 2018 - Painted Nativity - 7/50


Hi there!  Just stopping in with two more Christmas cards!  These two were pretty quick because it's all about the dies.  Both of these pretty Nativity dies are from Taylored Expressions.  The card above has a simple watercolor wash background.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle.  

And this next card, I used a combination of blended Distress Inks and some liquid watercolors.  


These cards make a total of 7 towards my goal of 50 by the end of this month.  Still moving slower than molasses, but a gal's gotta have goals;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Cards 2018 - Watercolor Cabin 5/50


Sometimes it's the little things that can make you happy!  This is so true of this little stamp from Altenew.  Using my watercolors, I painted in some background trees and a bit of light in the cabin.  The sweet sentiment is from Mama Elephant.  

This card is number 5 in my goal of 50 holiday cards by the end of November.  I'm still running behind, but I really have enjoyed all my crafty time.  

Have a great weekend!

Holiday Cards 2018 - Sweet Nativity 4/50


Just sharing another card for my Christmas stash!  This card uses the nativity set called Away in a Manger from Hello Bluebird.  Such sweet images in that set!  For the background, I wanted something soft, so I used the Cityscape 1 die from Paper Smooches to create a mask.  I blended some Antique Linen Distress Ink over the mask to create the silhouette background. 


Still working my way to my goal of 50 cards by the end of November.  This one is 4 of 50:)
