Can You Stand.....

one more Christmas card?  I needed another card -- so used a set I hadn't used much this year, Season of Joy:

I used non-traditional paper and colors, but I think the recipient will like it!

  • Stamps:  Season of Joy
  • Paper:  Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze, Manchester DP
  • Ink:  Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze
  • Acc:  3/4" Punch, Taffeta Ribbon, Glitter, Dimensionals

And how about a "green" card?  We received a flyer in the mail and the envelope had this cute snow scene, so I recycled it into a card I'll be using as a thank you.

The image from Whippersnapper's Snowman for Peace was stamped once on the flyer, then again on Whisper White, colored & cut out.  For the life of me, I have no idea why I colored his hat RED; a purple one would have matched much better!  Oh well!  Sentiment is from Winter Schminter, and the star is from Verve's Winter Wonder.  Some Dazzling Diamonds glitter made my snow scene shine & sparkle!

  • Stamps:  Snowman for Peace, Winter Schminter, Whippersnapper; Winter Wonder, Verve
  • Paper:  Whisper White, flyer from the mail
  • Ink:  Stazon Black, Riding Hood Red, Brocade Blue, White Craft
  • Acc:  Blender Pens, DD Glitter, Only Orange marker, White EP, Heat Tool

Make sure you stop back on Friday as I will be Sharon Johnson's Featured Stamper for her Stamp Simply Challenge on No Time to Stamp?!!!

  4. I WOULD PERSONALLY LOVE, CHERISH AND ADORE THAT CARD ON TOP. THOROUGHLY AND PERMANENTLY ADORE IT. LOVE IT AND CHERISH IT. SET IT ON MY MANTLE AND PRAY TO IT. ADORN IT WITH LIGHTS AND TAKE FAMILY PHOTOS AROUND IT, EVEN ON EASTER. I WOULD PERSONALLY PUT A CODICIL IN MY WILL ASKING TO BE BURIED WITH IT. . . . . GOT MY POINT?

  5. Both cards are fantastic. I love how you recycled an envelope. My mom is always giving me her old cards thinking I can recycle them, but I never seem to get to it. This gives the inspiration to give it a try.

  14. LeAnne, these cards are fantastic!

    I love the non-traditional colors of the first card, and couldn't help but notice the way you stamped the small poinsettia image directly onto the dp ... I never think of doing that and love the look!

    Your recycled card is very clever!
