Warm Holiday Wishes Card

The swirl design is stamped with a Versamark watermark stamp pad and then I applied Stamp and Bond then added a light blue glitter. I then added small snowflake accents that were punched with a tonic punch and added a light blue rhinestone accent to the center of the snowflakes. The sentiment is stamped with the Versamark watermark and ultra fine silver embossing powder.
This is a more detailed view of the swirl and snowflake design.

Christmas Cardinal Card

Here is my Christmas Cardinal Card. The stamp and diecut are from Heartfelt Creations. The branches and pine needles are originally stamped in black ink, then each needle is glued by a glue pen, embossed and then heat set. The same goes for the branches. The cardinal has two layers (pop dots separate them). I used Copics markers to color the cardinal and the pine cones. The white cardstock is chalked in green. I also used Cor'dinations (Sand it, Tear it, Love it) red paper that was also embossed using the Snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
Ok, this took some time. The under layer of the cone is colored with Copics along with the top layer. The top layer of the cone is just another stamped version of the cone, but it is cut in horizontal sections. Then it is glued to the bottom layer (only the top portion of each layer). Then the bottom layers are lifted up to give it the feel and appearance of a 3 dimensional shape of a cone. Finally, I applied a cocoa bean embossing powder to the top (used a glue pen), heat set it and now it looks like sap is on the cone. Very nice effect.

This is part of the inside of the card. The cardinal has been paper pieced into the stamped area. The branches and needles have been heat embossed. Flower soft was added for snow.

Let it Snow Card

This is my "Let it Snow" Card with stamps and diecuts from Heartfelt Creations. Various cardstock was used and a blue dye ink pad was utilized.
This is a Snowflake stamp and diecut from Heartfelt Creations. The diecuts make it much easier and faster!
On the light blue cardstock paper, I used a snowflake stamp by Heartfelt Creations and Versamarked it, applied Stamp and Bond and then heat set it. In person it shows up much better.
This is the inside of the "Let is Snow" Card. I have used "Devine Swirls" a cuttlebug embossing folder on both sides (1 1/2 inches) and then cut white cardstock to fit inside. Embossed a snowflake at the bottom.

Mouse Sleigh Card

This is my Christmas Card. The "Believe & you will find Christmas" stamp is heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
This is the cropped image of the Merry Christmas Card. The three mice and harnesses are pop dotted. All of the colorings are Copic Markers. The noses, Santa hat, and the red sleigh area done with Glossy accents. The "snow" at the bottom of the page is created by three ripped pages of white card stock that have been embossed with a Cuttle Bug embossing folder (Swiss Dots). They are arranged unevenly to get a snow effect.

Christmas Present Card

This is my Christmas Present Card....looks just like the top of a present! The snowflakes are all stamped (using a big stamp, but it is two images (one on the left, one on the right, both separated by the bow and ribbon)!
The tag is of the same color as the bow and ribbon. It has been heat embossed with silver embossing powder on the edges of the paper piecing. "Season's Greetings" is stamped in black and the holly is colored using Copic markers (green leaves) and red Stickles. Finished off with a white/glitter string.
The bow and ribbon are on lighter blue paper and then stamped with Versamark, silver embossing powder was added via heat embossing. The bow and ribbon are paper pieced. The bow is three layers, separated by pop dots. The layers did not show up too well, but it looks great in person.
Ok, this is not the best picture here, but it is of a stamped snowflake, that is heat embossed with Stamp and Bond, and then Prisma Glitter was added. I used a fine glue pen for the Stamp and Bond.

Birthday Card

This is a birthday card. I used two different yellow papers (although it photographed to look like it is gold). I used a cuttle bug embossing folder (divine swirls) on the under paper. Paper pieced a flower and two butterflies.
Inside of the card. Both papers have been corner punched.
I paper pieced 2 butterflies on the card and also stamped the butterfly image on the actual card. Although you cannot really see it well in this photo, the paper piecing is folded in the middle so that it looks like the butterfly is sitting on the card. I used a Zot to attached the butterfly to the card (The Zot is clear versus not using a white pop dot).
Another one of the butterflies. I also rubbed the stamp pad on the back of the paper piecing so that you did not see any white paper (looks a lot better).

The flower has three paper piecings that alternate stamped colors. I also stamped the card for a fourth layer. Finished the flower with a gemstone. I used small Zots for attaching them so that the flower was not really thick.
