Holiday Cards

Here are a couple of Christmas cards I've been working on that are entered in a challenge at Gina K Designs. We were to use a strip of paper on our cards. I put two on the second card. Still haven't decided on one I can make easily in multiples to send during the Christmas season, but these are possibilities.

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your visit and hope you will leave a comment before you go. Have a wonderful day!

P.S. Did you notice the addition to my banner for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday? I think it's so cute I couldn't help but add it here! Thanks for looking!

Joyous Penguin

I just love this little guy. I like to emboss him in black and then color in with red on his ear muffs, scarf and skates. I also embossed this background with white snowflakes. The stamp set is from Gina K Designs.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Please don't forget to leave a comment before you go. I appreciate it!

Here's a card that's my take on a video at Gina K Designs. I just love this paper from the Merry Little Christmas paper pack. The sentiment is stamped in VersaMark Black ink and heat-embossed in clear. I used Copics for the inside line around the snowman, the hat, scarf and mittens, and also around the outside. I also used the glitter pen the snowman.

Hope you like this card as much as I do. Gina is a real inspiration with her videos -- I always learn something new. Please take a moment to leave a comment before you go, as it keeps me motivated!


Here's another ATC-size card (2-1/2 x 3-1/2) I created for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge at Gina K Designs. This could be re-created on a regular, A2-size card. After layering the paper and the sentiment, I added some sprigs of holly from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you like today's card. Please be sure to leave a comment before you go because that's what keeps me going! Have a good weekend!

This is a tiny, 2-1/2 x 3-1/2, card created for the Gina K Design's Mix It Up Monday Challenge. The size is the requirement, so I simply stamped a scene on the tiny card just as I would on a larger card. The image and the sentiment were gifts in my Gina K Design's Grab Bag that I won in a recent challenge. I love them!

Pink, Green and Yellow

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! These cards were created for a Saturday Chat Challenge at Gina K Designs with the instructions to use green, pink and yellow. I think the three colors look very good together. It's nice to create something using brighter colors after making so many cards with darker Fall colors.

Hope you have a very nice day! Please don't forget to leave a comment before you go. Thank you!

Fall Foliage

These cards were created for a Gina K Designs Challenge where we were supposed to create Fall cards. I had a sudden burst of creativity the past couple of days and created these cards. The photography is not the best. I had to take the pictures indoors because the weather is so bad outside--cold, rainy and very windy. My cards could've landed in the yard, three stories down! Anyway, I used Gina K Designs stamps for all these cards. Now, I'm fresh out of new ideas. Hope that's temporary!

Thanks for stopping by. Good to have you! Please leave a comment before you go and let me know you were here. I appreciate that very much--makes my day!

I love the colors used in this card. The sentiment, although not the best for this card, could be appropriate enough. I didn't have the one that came with the Stamp Set, as this individual stamp was a gift from a very special friend. She knew I'd had my eye on it for quite some time, and one day there it was in my mailbox! Anyway, love these colors together!

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you'll leave a comment and let me know what you think. Have a good day!

Winter Blessings

This was created for a sketch challenge at Gina K Designs. The image and sentiment are from the stamp set called Snow One Like You, also at GKD.

Thanks for stopping by! I enjoy your comments very much, and they keep me motivated to continue on this creative journey. Have a great day!

Pink & Red

Here's a card I created for a challenge requiring only Pink and Red colors, with one other of your choice. Believe it or not, the mat behind the main image is actually red vellum, not black! I added Glossy Accents to the vase to make it shiny and stand out. The center of the pink flowers have black matte ink.

Thanks for looking! Appreciate any comment you'd like to leave. Take it easy, and see you soon!
