'Tis the Season

DSCF4586

A crafter can never be "too soon" for Christmas, can she?  I was so happy to see this cute little snowmen image in the new SU catalog, even though it is a Level 3 Hostess Set.  This is called The More the Merrier!  I am still on a mission to make samples with my new sets, so I thought Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch #25 was a good one for this image.  Here is the sketch:

SSSC25

And here's the card:

It also uses Punch Pals for the medallion; the Bashful Blue panel was embossed with the Texturz small dots pattern.  Glitter and a Jelly Roll pen added some glittery snow!  This also qualifies for SCS WT226 challenge, Christmas in July!

I was just sort of playing around with this image because I love watercoloring!DSCF4582

 

 

 

Real quick I made this card because I couldn't think of what else to do with it!

I guess you might call it CAS.  Also uses the leaf from Autumn Days stamped on Dusty Durango and Soft Suede ribbon.  Card is Close to Cocoa.  Now it's off to mow the grass!  Have a great day!

  7. Those snowmen are tooooo cute! I realy love the CAS card, there's something I enjoy about making autumn cards.

    I was bloghopping to procrastinate from mowing the lawn, but I suppose if you can, I can. And it's not raining---a first around here!

  13. Great cards LeAnne! I love the colors and the stamps. Is the only way to get the snowmen to have a class that is $500? I am always my own hostess at $150 and I go to a demo"s house.

  14. Ahhhh Always a place and time to sit and look at what you create....and, yes, I asked Joy to send me my dew drops....and I'm still waiting.....so I'm going online and order some more. And, FYI, I LOVE my SLICE. I just haven't had any time to actually USE it. The problem? I like my scallop layers to be nestled closer to each other's edges, and with the SLICE, they're 1/2 inch apart. Too large a difference.

    And NO, you can never be too early when it comes to getting your Christmas cards ready. I think I should start now too.
