Holiday Girls

     My inspiration for this card came from the new Inspiration Avenue (IA) that TAC recently released.  On page 26 of IA there are three really cute projects and two of the projects feature a little girl image from the Holiday Girls stamp set.  I used my Copic markers to color the little my Copics!  The sentiment is from Tag Tidbits, the red flower is from the Ava Embellishment Jar, and the white flower is from the Neutral Mix Bitty Blossoms

Reece Christmas Cards

Here are three more Christmas cards that I made with some of my Reece scraps.  I've made two more 3x3 cards and then another fun size - a 6 x 3. 

I used one of the Reece tags and a large eyelet for this 3x3 card.  What a quick and easy card!  The sentiment is from Trendy Greetings.

The stamped images are from Sweet Goodies and I used red stickles on the berries. 

On this card I used just a small scrap of Reece paper, added some ribbon, and a sentiment from a Level C Hostess set.  Quick and simple!

Christmas Card - 3

     This is the third card that I demonstrated.  This card measures 3x3 and uses TAC's Reece papers.  The stamped image is from Christmas Circles and the word 'thanks' is from Tag Tidbits.  I have a lot of fun making 3x3 cards because I can usually go to my scrap box for what I need.  I made three more cards from some Reece scraps and I'll be showing those to you tomorrow!

Christmas Card - 2

     This is the second card that I'll be demonstrating today.  I really wanted to use a white ink for the white snowflakes, but the three different white stamp pads that I have just wouldn't show up very well.  I ended up embossing with white embossing powder.  I love the look, but don't enjoy the mess and hassle.  I used three different stamp sets for this card : Ornamental Snowflakes, Tag Tidbits, and Joyful Ornaments.  My inspiration for this card came from a card I found over at  Thanks for stopping by again and be sure to come back to check out some more Christmas cards that I've been working on.

Christmas Card - 1

     Several businesses in downtown Oswego, KS, are having open houses tomorrow afternoon and Taylor Newspapers asked if I'd like to come and demonstrate a few Christmas cards.  I've prepared three projects and I'll show them to you over the next few days. 
     The card shown above features TAC's Amelia paper collection.  It is great paper to use for Christmas cards.  Do you see the the pierced holes just below the patterned paper?  I used the Scor-Pal and the Scor-Bug Embosser to make perfectly spaced holes.  So quick and easy!!  No more measuring with a ruler and making holes with my paper piercer.  I ruined so many projects that way...I'd always get something crooked.  The sentiment on the card comes from a Level C Hostess set in the current TAC base book. 
     Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check back in the next couple of days so that you can check out my other Christmas cards.
