It's that time of the year! The holiday season is approaching and I'm sure crafters will be busy all over the world. The will be cards, wood boards, scrapbooks, and ornaments all over the internet. I will just be sitting here enjoying my little corner of the world.
So, let's get started with a few cards:
As the holidays get closer I'll be posting a lot more projects and checking blogs to get ideas!
It's been a long while since I've posted anything to my blog. Life has been crazy, up and down, and all around. But....now I'm back!
So, on with the show!
Here are ornaments I have done for family members.
It was a lot of work, but I enjoyed every minute of it. The last one is mine and I haven't decided what colors to use on it yet. Of course, there will be a crown!.......lol. And, in case you didn't notice in two of the pics, my assistant, Brandon.
I am wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday season.
The DAD IS KING cut was super easy to use. Plus, it gave me the opportunity to use bling and shiny paper. Seeing that we are in Cardinal Country I went with the red, white and black, which gave the card great contrast. Used silver paper for the crown and embossed hearts on the crown filler, used some red bling to finish it off."

I cut the top layer in yellow and the base in pink. I made the base by copying the bottom layer and welding it to make the card. For some reason, when I saw this cut, I immediately thought "heavenly" and since the top reminded me of a window, I inked up some white paper, using blue distress ink, to form a cloud scene. Stamped 'Happy Easter' on the inside to finish.

For this challenge, I decided to use the World's Best Mom cut! I started out with a 6 x 6 ceramic tile and embossed my sentiments (huggable, sweetness, adorable, and thankful) for my border. I used paper butterflies for the corner embellishments (Michael's $1 bin). I cut the World's Best Mom layers in a 4 x 4 area. As you can see, the base and letters in black and the middle layer in white. It was really easy to put these layers together by the shape of the base. After cutting, and putting the layers together, I adhered the cut to the tile using mod podge, and in order to give the cut some durability and shine, I painted a thin coat of mod podge over it.

Using the VALENTINE SET and the VALENTINE HEARTS SETset for this card. For the background I layered two pieces of vellum--one pattern (striped) and one plain-- which I embossed with the circle heart stamp. I then used the heart border from the Valentine Hearts set for the top and bottom borders. I used the word "LOVE" from the Valentine set. For the inside I combined the two sets again, using the heart and the cupids. I had fun making this card because it took me out of my comfort zone. Layering the vellum was a challenge. I decided to use wet glue so that it would buckle some. In order to hide the adhesive, I put it behind all the elements on the front of the card."
