Holiday Cards 2018 - Pastel Penguins 14/50

Good morning!  How's this Monday treating you so far?  This is Thanksgiving week for us in the US, but instead of getting ready for Thanksgiving like I should be, I'm still working on my holiday cards:)  For today's card, I used two newish sets from My Favorite Things, Sweet Holiday Penguins and Hand-lettered Holiday Greetings.  Love, love, love the penguin stamps designed by Stacey Yacula! 

I couldn't choose a favorite penguin, so I used them all in my card and colored them with Copics in fun pastels colors.  I used the MFT Stitched Circle Frames to make a quick shaker for the sentiment.  

This card is number 14 towards my goal of 50 by December 1!   I got a few more done this weekend, so I'll post them soon.  I'm approaching 20 now!  Woohoo!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Holiday Cards 2018 - Falala Fun 12/50

Hi guys!  Another CAS Christmas Card today using the new Falala coverplate from Neat & Tangled and a silly dog from Mama Elephant's Yappy Woofmas.  Using a coverplate in one color is a good way to add a little something without it being too busy.  I love this coverplate!

This card is number 12 towards my goal of 50 by December 1!  (I'm such a slowpoke!)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Holiday Cards 2018 - Snow Much Fun 11/50

Hey guys!  These 4 cards came from my very productive weekend!  I have 4 coordinating snowflake cards using the awesome Concord & 9th Snow Flurry dies and Snow Flurry stamps.  I absolutely love the oversized snowflake die!   I used it to make 2 shaker cards and 2 inlaid die cut cards.  All of four of them have a fun stamped buffalo plaid too.  These first 2 are the red versions.  

And here are the blue versions!  Which ones do you prefer?

These 4 cards make 8, 9, 10, and 11 towards my goal of 50 by December 1!  Half the month gone, yikes!  I'm behind but not still keeping on:) 

Hope you are having a fun week!

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:)
