41 NorthPole

I am working on Christmas cards all day & everyother card I will be downloading to my Blog and my Gallery over at Splitcoast. I quickly made up a Fauxpostage template in Excel and stamped my main image. To make the image a little old and worn I used my ink pad and rubbed it along the sides and a little on the top. The specks are done with the color spritzer tool.
***If you would like my postage template, please email me and I will send it to you.

I have been busy getting the last of my Christmas cards done. Now I have to get busy on my baking and special desserts I make and ship those out. I LOVE to bake but it takes forever and the mess is horrible. Wish me luck, I will need it!

Sweet Holidays...

Here is a quick card I stamped for today... My inspiration came from the Martha Stewart December issue. I just LOVE the look of a white embossed image on a piece of Creamy Caramel cardstock, it reminds me of frosted gingerbread.

Gorgeous Snowflake

Here is a card I made using last years designer paper. I LOVE this paper and got it out special for my snowflake card. It works great with Stampin' Up!'s holiday chipboard.

For this card, I layered the dp onto bashful blue and then whisper white. The snowflake is painted white, covered in mod podge and sprinkled with dazzling diamonds. The ribbon was heated just a touch to make it curl. (Use heat gun)

Come back later , I will have more snowflake cards to share!
Jennifer :)

ULAS Christmas Cheer
