Colorful Birds

A few more cards from the bird series! I haven't been stamping much so for my holiday cards I was playing around and ended up making unique cards for everyone. I don't think I made 2 the same. I did end up only using 3 main images - the birds, the cityscape and a CHF set, which I'll post later. I had fun coloring in these birds with Copic markers though. Still need to get better at the shading. Anyhow, I'm still on vacation!
Thanks for looking and hope you are enjoying the last days of 2009!

Merry Christmas Yellow Birds

Merry Christmas ! I hope you are enjoying your holidays! May you have a happy and healthy 2010!
Here is a fairly flat card that I made to mail. This cute set is by The Greeting Farm. I think it may be retired - I got it last year. The pattern paper is Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly - such bright happy colors!

Cityscape Cards with Santa

Here are cityscape cards with Santa! I saw a lot of cards that looked so pretty with the silhouette Santa in a sleigh that I had to copy it. I think it looks so fun! I'm actually on vacation now so I don't have time to write down the details. If anyone has any questions about the products I used, I'd be happy to share! Thanks for looking!

Cityscape Series

I started making holiday cards very late this year. I was sick and lazy :). I did a few with this A Muse cityscape stamp. I embossed with silver embossing powder, which comes out nicely. I forgot to buy silvery paper so had very little left.

Stamps: CHF Christmas Critters (sentiment), A Muse Cityscape
Ink: PTI Enchanted Evening
Paper: PTI
Other: Cuttlebug Embossing folder, ribbons, Spellbinders Labels, Martha Stewart Snowflake punch

Happy 1 Baby!

This is for a very special little 1 year old boy! I had fun making this card for him. Used a fun alphabet stamp set. I stamped them on colored paper and cut each letter out. I popped them up on pop dots, which is hard to see here. Sorry for the bad photo, it was taken in artificial light.

Stamps: CHF Bear Hugs, Hero Arts Birthday
Paper: PTI Ocean Depth, Bazzill, DCWV
Other: Studio Calico alphabet stamp set, brads, twine
