Christmas card

 Time to start showing the Christmas cards I have made this year.  I had
a lot from last year events and kits so I did not have to make many,  my
stash is all used up now so I've ordered a few new things to
start on next year!!

I used the poinsettia from a pillow box die set I have,
it is hidden on my crafting table at the moment, I
can add the company when I find it.  The Noel is
Tim Holtz and the gold leaves are Fiddly Leaves
by Simon Says Stamp (one of my most used dies).
I made a few  versions of this card, all a bit

JDS-New Year

  It's mid month at the monthly challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps.

 This New Year set is a new release.  I cut it on my
Scan N Cut and cut an extra had and horn for dimension.
Colored with Copics.  For the background I use a 
stencil that has been in my stash but not used yet, Warp Speed
by Altenew-it will be seeing a lot of ink now! Sentiment and its
layer are die cut.

Some sad and happy news.  The owners of Jan's Digi
Stamps are retiring.  We will miss their beautiful
digi's.  You may want to stock up with the current sale.
Jan's Etsy shop will remain open.

 It's a new month so time for new releases and a new monthly

 challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps.

Grab this free digital image, Ornaments,  before the end of the year
 as a gift from Jan. I printed it on vellum and white card stock, I
colored the ornaments on the white layer with Stampin Blends 
and them colored the snowflakes and ornament hooks with
a silver Gelly Pen for sparkle. I die cut several stitched
layers for dimension and interest.  Be sure to
grab this free digi.

 Looks like a simple card but take it into the dark and
the ghosts glow.  Note easy to capture on camera
but you get the idea below:

I did not have a ghost die so I used part of a penguin
die from Spellbinders and cut the feet off.  I used
Wow glow in the dark embossing powder on the

JDS-Harvest Blessings

  It's mid month at the monthly challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps.

 Harvest Blessings had some beautiful images but this "bless
your home and family" image struck me.  I printed it on
vellum and white card stock, coloring  on the card stock
one.  Die cut both after gluing together with a circle 
die and cut some leaves with Simon Says Stamp
Fiddly Leaves.  The background is a jelly plate paper
I had in my stash from a previous play.

Snippet card

 This is my second post today.

Dry embossed panel I cut my snippet from:

I got this darling set from a friend of mine for no reason.  I have seen a
lot of darling cards made with it, and I just had to make her a thank 
you card with it.  I had a scrap (snippet) of an inked dry 
embossed panel that I did not like but thought would make a
good die cut chair.
