A Birthday Card and some Christmas Tags...

It's the day before Christmas Eve and I'm sitting here listening to Spotify (Christmas music) and making the last arrangements for the gifts, wrapping them and making tags. I'm quite enjoying myself, DH has brought me some sweets too:)

I've made a birthday-card also as we're going to celebrate my mom on Christmas Day. I've used Kraft Card-stock (Bazzill) and stamps from Martha Stewart (Doilies), a Swedish sentiment stamp and a pink felt flower.

Here's a pic of one of the gifts with a tag I've made. I've used a background stamp with hearts (YouDo) and papers from Echo Park.

Some of the other Christmas tags I've made.

Wishing you all a great holiday:)

More Christmas Cards...

Thank you so much for the all the kind comments I got after my last blog-post. Hugs to you all! I've finally finished the last Christmas card and mailed them all today...

Here are some of them.

First a Kraft card-base that I've stamped with different stamps, the houses comes from clear stamp-set "City by the bay" by My Little Shoebox, the snowflakes from Nellie Snellen. I've used Clearsnaps Color Box in Frost White, it's perfect for stamping on Kraft! Small self adhesive pearls are the finishing touch. Clean and simple:) 

These cards are also very simple, I made a couple with similar design (you have to simplify things when you have a lot of cards to make). Patterned papers and chipboard accents from "Season's Greetings" by Echo Park. You can blame Designer Kristina Werner for my frequent use of white pens, LOL.

Here I've used clear stamps from Martha Stewart for the background, Versa Mark and then clear embossing-powder. ("Doilies" by Martha Stewart). Also  a clear stamp by Inkadinkado; "Decorating Rabbit Mini". Snowflake and brad by Echo Park.

Finally the last card... Here I've used a grey card-base and embossed with silver embossing-powder. I really like the effect of silver on grey card-stock! I've punched out the circular stamped greeting with a circle-punch 2" and I've also used a heart-punch and some Christmas red Stickles.

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
