peace & joy

Hello! It has been a month since I’ve shared some cards and just as long since I’ve done much crafting. Family comes first. Our new granddaughter spent 16 days in the hospital but is home now and slowly improving. I’m also slowly getting back to finding time for stamping but first I’m trying to get caught up on Christmas. It’s less than a week away!

I don’t have any cards to share with the Sweet ‘n Sassy December release but it’s a fabulous one! Be sure to check out the new sets and all the samples the design team has been making with them. I do, however, have a few things that I didn’t share from previous releases. The Poinsettia Greetings stamp set is great and don’t feel intimidated by coloring it. Both of my cards were stamped with no coloring involved so you can make a bunch of these for your holiday cards. Get a start on next year and make a few each month…you’ll be glad you did!

I stamped the large flower twice on patterned papers and heat embossed them with gold e.p. After cutting them out, I popped the middle pink layer with some foam dots and added some tiny gold rhinestones to the center.

I stamped the flower with red ink onto gray cardstock for the second card. The silver metallic layer with diecut “joy” was leftover from a project last year. It made a perfect layer for this card.

My next two projects use the Trust in the Lord stamp set. I kept this card CAS to let the words stand out.

I also made a Faithdex card and added a paper-pieced hedgie from Fur-ever Friends.

I’ll be back with some more catching up. Have a great day!
