Craft Foil Cards

These cards were made using Craft Foil and Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. They are both so elegant....and quick and easy to top it off!!! To make it even better Kathy put the Craft Foil on sale at 30% off!!!

For the first one Doreen used Silver Craft Foil and Cuttlebug Embossing Folder "Season's Greetings." Bazzill's Embossed Paper was the base of the card and a cute little plaid ribbon was added for the perfect finishing touch.

Red Craft Foil was used for this card with Cuttlebug's

"Candy Cane Stripe" Embossing Folder. The base of the card was embossed with Cuttlebug's

"Holly Ribbon's." The Ovals and Holly are cut from green craft foil (the berries red ) with Spellbinder dies. The beautiful verse is called "World Peace" and is a wood stamp from Penny Black. And best of all the Craft Foil is 30% off!!!

Christmas Blessings

Isn't that the BEST Santa face ever!!! Doreen used Santa Faces & Jingle Bells E-Z Rub on Transfers to make this card. The verse is from Cornish Heritage Farms "Christmas Expressions." This set has some very nice greetings. Spellbinders Ribbon Tag paper was used as well as paper from Graphic 45.

Skater's Pond in Blue

Simple stamping.......just one color of ink......yet very pretty!

I stamped this CHF Thomas Kinkade Skater's Pond with Versafine Majestic Blue on white card stock. I added Stickles Frosted Lace to some of the snow areas. Then I misted it with Tattered Angels Pearl. The shimmer doesn't show much in my photo. I matted it on a shimmery weave paper and then on the blue check by L'il Davis Designs from Fiskars. Three little bows finish it off.

You don't chose your family.

With our new paper (Ancestral Line....Bird Brocade & Remember Moments) and stamp sets (Inspirational Quotes) from TPC Studio, Doreen created this very meaningful card. She popped up the Spellbinders Sunflower (set two) to complete the card. It's one of my favorites!

Also new are stamps sets from Darcie's. These are also cling stamps that come in a hard storage case. Every stamp you need in one set to make some great holiday cards!

I especially like that each set has verses to coordinate with the images.

My Best Friends are Flakes

Cornish Heritage's November Stamp of the Month, "My best friends are flakes" was used for this darling card by Mary Jo. Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circles made the cuts and the border is from the JustRite "Old Fashioned Christmas" set. She used the masking technique Judy taught at the Fall Workshop. Copic and Spica markers were used to add color and a bow to fancy things up. The paper is from Cloud9Design. How cute!!

Santa's Coming!

Doreen made this cute card with Serendipitys "Santa's Coming" set.
Copic Markers were used to color santa and his bag of toys. A glue pen and prism glitter add just the right sparkle. "Happy Holidays" was stamped with a wood stamp from Amuse.
