Red and White Christmas cards

Hi, how're you? I hope your Friday is going well, the weekend is just around the corner and I hope your plans for it mean you get to have time for you, doing what you need and want to do.

I have two cards for you today that are unadulterated Sue Wilson cards. You'll see what I mean when you see them. I think they are really gorgeous and are in typical Christmas Colours. I bet you know what I am going to say next - yep! That's it .... they are similar but slightly different.

Here we go ...  Card #1

Isn't it pretty? I used Scarlet and Tomatoe Kaisercraft weave card stock and Sue Wilson (Creative Expression) dies details below in the ingredients list. I added Red Tulle with the leaves and poinsettias.

I used a Spellbinders tag die with matching pearl want2scrap bling, The stamp is a JustRite stamp and I used a Tuxedo Black ink pad.

The poinsettia dies are gorgeous and work really well together when you form them a little with a stylus and foam pad.

The poinsettias come in three sizes and they look so good together. They take a while to cut out and put together but it is So worth the effort!

I kept the inside of the card simple and the same for both cards - using another JustRite stamp as the sentiment and a piece of red and white polka dot ribbon.

Card #2 - see if you can spot the differences!!

Not many - just the tag and the Want2scrap bling as you can see more clearly below.

I used the same JustRite stamp as for the other card.

Here are the main ingredients that I used to make these two cards:

A second wintry mug of cocoa Christmas card

Hello - how're you doing today? Just where is October going already? It's the 9th and I'm just getting my head around being away for a couple of weeks shortly - it has seemed to be so far off and my travelling date will be here as soon as!

Today's card is similar to one I have made before - you'll see this on my blog posting HERE.

Here it is:

You'll remember this was a Cottage Cutz die. I used Kaisercraft vanilla weave card stock for the base of my card. I used a 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad from Kaisercraft Twig and Berry, a Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses die, Spellbinders Floral ovals and Labels twenty seven die. The beautiful green ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon

Trees from Impression Obsession, painted with white and Stickles crystal glitter.
The Cottage Cuts dies use up all my scraps

I just adore this Spellbinders die it's so pretty. The little stars are the confetti from cutting out the white card stock from the Raindrops on Roses die.
The sentiment is from JustRite stamps and stamped with a a Black Tuxedo Memento ink pad.

The Nativity - 3 Christmas Cards

Hello my blogging family and friends I hope my post finds you well. Did you have/are you having a great day?
I have three cards to show with you all use the Cottage Cutz Nativity scene, so they are similar but slightly different!

Here we go .....
CARD #1:

This is the front of Card #1. The base is white card stock with a mat of gorgeous Pale blue American Cards Pastel Card Stock which I mounted using foam tape for added dimension. The top white card stock mat was then faux stitched which was the layer I added the die cut images of the Nativity onto. The sentiment is a Waltzingmouse Christmas stamped with Tuxedo Black memento ink.

I'll tell you a secret, I actually thought I'd lost the last third of the image, then I found it so I added it to the inside of the card with a JustRite stamped sentiment.

Card #2:
A little bit the same - this time using Navy card stock for the Nativity images.

This is the complete Nativity on the card front.

Card #3:
I have a few Photos to show some of the images close up. This time I used a Black (Kaisercraft Liquorice) card stock for the Nativity scene with a matching black card stock matted layer as well.

Here are all the parts of the Nativity in close up.

We three kings of Orient are...

Unto us a child is born ......

While Shepherds watch their flocks by night .....

Here are the main ingredients I used to make these cards:

Thanks for stopping by today, I have a couple of other cards in hand to share with you, so  I'll post those as soon as I can.
