A Few More Christmas Cards

I have a few Christmas cards for you today; I was just sort of playing around with my stamps…no challenges, nothing specific, just stamping for the fun of it!  I didn’t purchase too many Christmas stamps from the catalog this year, so I was trying to use what I had in different ways.  I saw a blackboard-style card using O Holy Night, so I tried my hand at it as well, mounting it on some silver paper and using an embossed Apothecary Accent diecut on a Cherry Cobbler card base:
LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings O Holy Night Chalkboard Card
Same stamp set, stamped in Gold Encore ink (why haven’t I used this ink in such a long time?—it’s beautiful!); again on a Cherry Cobbler base (I had cut a bunch for a project and then ending up not using them!!!), and I diecut & embossed the edge, then added some Brushed Gold cardstock as accents.  Really easy and classy!
LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings O Holy Night Gold Christmas Card
Finally, I was playing with some scraps laying on my desk and the Endless Wishes stamp set, which sadly has sold out already!!!  I stamped it in Chocolate Chip, then added glitter.  I embossed the Crumb Cake base with a non-SU embossing folder.

Another trio to add to my stash!
Cassidy was playing with a little printout from the computer, gluing shapes on to the designated areas, when she spied my glitter container and wanted to play with the glitter inside.  I had some glitter glue I never use, so I showed her how to squeeze the bottle and dab some on….oh boy:
The finished project…..BLOBS of glitter glue!  She loved it!
Enjoy your day!

We're on the same wave length as we used the same Endless wishes stamps today on our projects! Too funny :) Love them all, especially the embossing on kraft, but Cassidy's glue globs are the most fun :)


I love the Merry Christmas embossing folder. Where did you find that?
