Inspired Stamps Christmas Card

Hello and welcome here!  It's been a busy week getting back to work and the kids are back to school.  This whole month the Inspired Stamps DT are showcasing Christmas cards!

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I went with a quick and easy Christmas card.  I used His Little Ones: Winter Boy and the sentiment is from Blessed Little Christmas.  I added a torn edge for snow and used the Memory Box Birch Trio to add the trees behind the boy.


Inside:
For the inside I used one of the circle sentiments from 1.5 inch Circle Christmas.  And because it's decorative already, it makes for a quick and pretty sentiment on the inside.

Hair - E15, E34, E39
Snowsuit - B34, N7
Hat - R27

Eureka!!!!!!!!! Oh bummer, lol.

Well, I've figured out why my photos went missing, lol.  Laughing is all I can do at the moment because crying will only mess up my makeup...just kidding, I don't wear makeup. 

My daughter has a tablet and she was low on memory so I told her to delete a bunch of my blog photos, really, what are they doing on your tablet anyway??  Well, low and behold, there was a reason.  So please be patient as I go through and try to figure out and reload my photos.  Lucky for me I'm a packrat and keep them in a folder once I've uploaded them.

And, laugh with me....

Inspired Stamps Christmas Card Showcase

Hello and welcome here on the first of September!  I've been having issues with the photos on my older posts showing up and I'm trying to figure out the problem, no luck yet why it's doing this so if you have any helpful info please let me know.

This month the Inspired Stamps DT are showcasing Christmas stamps!  For us cardmakers, getting an early start is essential because before you know it, Christmas will be here and time for family and friends takes over.

Card Size:  4" x 6"
I used a few different stamps set for my card.  The girl is Hymn Girls: March.  I tried my hand at colouring on Kraft cardstock using Primacolor pencils.  Next time I'll add a white undertone to the dress...it's much redder in real life but I think it would pop more coloured on top of white. I love how you can make her winter-ish by giving her boots to wear!

The holly is from Flower Value Set, it's also coloured using Primacolor pencils.  The sentiment is from the 1" Circle Sentiments.

Inside:
For the inside sentiment and cross I used Blessed Little Chrismtas.

Prismacolor's Used:
Face - 924, 927, 939
Dress - 924
Boots - 935
Cross - 937, 944, 946
Snow - 938
Sky - 904, 938
Berries - 924
Leaves - 911, 912

Recipe:  Inspired Stamps SS- Hymn Girls: March, 1" Circle Sentiments, Flower Value Set & Blessed Little Christmas, Kraft CS, CTMH White Daisy CS, CTMH Ink- Black & Indian Corn Blue, Foam Squares, Spellbinders-Radiant Rectangles, BoBunny PP-Dark Denim Vintage Double Dot, Red Pearls.
