Happy Pawlidays


Hello and welcome to a very late post for day 11 the 25 days of Christmas inspiration. 

Today's card uses a cute set that has been out of stock everywhere and it finally it was back in stock when MFT was having their sale. 
To make my card I started with a white top folding card base, a piece of patterned paper cut to the size of the base and the Pawlidays set by My Favorite Things. I stamped the image with Memento and then colored it with Copic markers. I added some 3mm googly eyes to the puppy and some glossy accents to the bulbs. To finish the card I added the greeting snd some tiny colored rhinestones. 


I am entering this one in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge of 
Christmas/Winter Holiday 
and 
Less is More challenge of 
Candles/something depicting light



I will be back later on today for day 12

Sparkling Joy



Welcome to Day 10 of my 25 Days of Christmas Inspiration series. 

Today's post also doubles as my card for the new challenge at AAA Cards which will run the rest f the year, the next challenge will be on Jan 7th. 
The holidays always get so busy and this will give you plenty of time to link up a card before the next challenge.  


To make the super CAS card, I started with a with top folding card base, some red glimmer paper and the Joy set by Concord & 9th.  Using the Mini Misti I stamped the snowflake also in the Joy set using Delicata gold ink and the greeting in black Memento ink. I used the Joy dies to cut out the letters in red glimmer paper and popped them up with foam tape. Super simple card that makes a statement.

To make my card I started with a top folding Crumb Cake base and yep you guessed it, that Plaid Background stamp by Concord & 9th. I am loving that stamp as you can tell. I stamped it o Real Red cardstock with Black ink. To cut the ornament I used the Ornamental dies also by Concord & 9th. I used a pine bough by Stampin up for the pine needles.
 The background was made using the Barnwood Background stamp, another one of my favorites by Concord & 9th. To finish the card I used the Merry die cut alsoby Concord & 9th out of gold glimmer paper and embossed the word Christmas (from a Neat & Tangled set) in white embossing powder to contrast.
