Night In Bethlehem

Hello to all of you, are you all ready for Christmas by now?  I think I'm all set for the big week-end.

My husband likes to send a special card to his friend that he use to work with, so I made this one for him to send.  I did use a bigger card base, as husband likes his cards BIG!  So I wanted to try this new Christmas set, as I've seen so many pretty cards made with it, so here is what I came up with.


Since the card base is much bigger than what I'm use to, I feel like it is not one of my best, so I'm hoping his friend will like it, I think his wife will for sure!

Here is what I used:

Stamp set: Night In Bethlemem
Card stock: Night of Navy and Whisper White
Ink: Smoky Slate, Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Pool Party and Marina Mist
Large Letters Framelits

Thank you for stopping in, I appreciate it!  Mary

Half Full

My youngest daughter is a member of a monthly wine club, so when this set was introduced in the Holiday Catalog, I knew I could put it to good use.  So for the first card I made with this set, I made her a Christmas card, I found this card on Angie's L. blog so I CASE'd it!  I used my ink pads and Blender pen to color in the images with.


Here is what I used:

Stamp set: Half Full
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Whisper White
Inks: Old Olive Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight and Black Memento
Blender Pen
Stitched Circle Framelit
Linen Thread
Gold Sequin-retired

As you can see, I got my pictures loaded to my computer but I don't remember what I did, but I hope I fixed the problem!!  Mary

This Little Piggy

Hi everyone, are you all done with making, addressing and mailing your Christmas cards out?  I thought I was totally done, but decided to make and send out three more cards and then my daughter asked if I could make her three for Wesley's daycare teaches and two gift card holders, I'd better shake a leg and get busy!!

The card I'm sharing with you today is one that I made for my other daughter to give to her friend.  Her friend has pigs on her farm and I just couldn't resist making her friend with a pig on the front!
I taped off the flower that the pig was holding, which is not hard to do.  I used my Blender Pen and Watercolor Pencils to color in the image.


Here is what I used:

Stamp sets: This Little Piggy, Teeny Tiny Wishes and Snow Play (for Santa's hat-retired
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Whisper White
Inks: Real Red and Black Memento
Holly Embossing Folder
Watercolor Pencils
Blender Pen
Classic Label
Oval Stitched Framelits
Layering Oval Framelits
Burlap Ribbon
Red Glimmer Paper

Thank you for coming by.  I don't know if I'll be posting next week, as I'm having technical difficulties with my phone and computer, hoping I can figure out what is wrong, if not I'll call APPLE and have them help me out!  Mary

Christmas Tags

Once again I used the Label me Pretty stamp set and coordinating punch, which makes it super easy to make tags, quickly.  I also used a tag set from last year to cut out the circle tag behind the Santa paper, which is retired.  I used the Stitched Framelits to cut it out and had it laying on my table, so easy peasy!


I used the Layering Oval Framelits to make the Label Me Pretty tag with Gold Foil.  The baker's twine is retired.

Thank you for coming by to see my creations, I appreciate it so very much!  Mary
