Still Merrily In Christmas Cardmaking Mode...

Well, that's Thanksgiving done and dusted for another year.  I do love Thanksgiving so.  So back at it I am, making more Christmas cards to (hopefully) sell for this festive season.  Here are several more I have made since my last report.  It's a bit pic heavy this post, but I didn't want you to think I'd just been slacking off, still blissfully basking in the joys of my post turkey L-tryptophan high.  

The bulk of the stamps used in this current collection of cards is from Waltzingmouse Stamps, Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink, Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous and Impression Obsession.  Many of the dies either belong to Spellbinders or Papertrey ink.  You will let me know, now won't you, if you'd like any more specifics of any card?  ...And fingers crossed I will remember the requisite bits.   

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Here's to a fabulous day for us all!

Oh my--you have been a busy girl. No slacking off for you! They are all so beautiful--each one has just that something special--embossing, lace, jingle bells--to set it apart. A good job all 'round.

Oh my, Your cards are spectacular, Jen. The pattern papers are so lovely. The blue peace one is my favorite. Love those pointsettias too.

You really have been busy, so many gorgeous cards. I love the ones you made with Holiday Remedies, those labels are so pretty and I also am going to case your card with the poinsettias. I have not been able to figure out how to use my super big Mat Stack #3 die and now I know a perfect way to use it. Love that you used the Wonderful Words diecut on it, great, great idea.

I love looking at your cards - colors, texture, embellishments! I see in your 5th card you've embossed a mat stack die-cut. Thank you for the inspiration, would try this soon!

Oh my gosh ,Jen ! All of your card are so beautiful ,where do you find the time? Each one it's so detailed . I love the stamp sets you used .

Michelle said...

Whoa! Look at all that Christmas love. I'll be here forever talking about each card...so I'll shorten it up ;) The first peace die looks like it was cut out of cork? And I like it. I'mma try that...but I'm afraid it'll break coming out of the die. We'll give it a whirl.... And I really need some more Waltzingmouse Stamps. I don't have any of the big ones and I love the warmth and the vintage feel of those sentiments and their style. Tinsel...bells....red and green ribbons...oh my!
