Warmest Holiday Wishes

Warmest Holiday Wishes to you and yours!

Here is my mailable 2012 Christmas Card.  I used a Penny Black Snowman stamp that I have had for quite some time, but is still available for purchase.  The sentiment is from Stampendous and I found it some time ago at Hobby Lobby.  Since my card needed to be mail friendly plus easy to mass produce, I kept it simple.  I started by stamping my design on Kraft cardstock and then added some color with Copic markers and a white colored pencil.  The snowflakes and fringe on the scarf have Spica glitter pen added for some sparkle.  It's hard to take a photo of cards with glittery goodness.  I added 2 mini black brads for the buttons and a MS snowflake punch.  The center of the snowflake is a small punched red circle with Glossy Accents added to  make it look like a brad.  

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to all of my stamping friends!

Smiles & Sunshine to You!

More Glittery Ornaments

  "A" for Amelia

"C" for Claire

I have been having fun making lots of the glitter ornaments.  These are for my 2 granddaughters.  I give all my Grandchildren an ornament every year for Christmas.  I added a gemstone initial to each ornament.  I found the initials at Hobby Lobby, but I am sure most craft stores carry something similiar.  I added some ribbon to the hanger and they were ready to be shipped off to Texas.

Hope you are finishing up all those last minute holiday gifts, shopping and wrapping.

Santa Ornament

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I've been quite busy.  This is one of my latest projects.  So quick and so easy and I absolutely love the glittery goodness without glitter everywhere.  I used the Pledge Floor Wax/Glitter technique with a clear ornament.  It was so easy!  I added a ribbon and belt buckle for Santa's belt and some assorted ribbon to embellish the hanger!
