Holiday Images

I found these images at an antique store in my area and thought I would scan and post them for your use during the holiday season. Enjoy!


Happy Holly Days Card

One of my Christmas cards for the upcoming holidays!


I found a really neat online store for ATC supplies and was delighted with the fall goody package that was included with my stamp order. I just made these 4 ATC's with the goodies Lisa included and a few from my stash. If you get a chance, please check out Lisa's store yourATCstore.com where you will find all kinds of ATC supplies!!! Customer service was fantastic and shipping was fast!


Holiday Tags

I seem to be getting into the holiday season early and created these tags using some Stampin Up paper that I think is absolutely lovely! The stamps are from Crafty Secrets and I used Ranger Distress Ink in Walnut Stain to distress the tags before applying the SU paper. Hope you are inspired to get into the holiday spirit!

Stampin'D'Amour Weekly Challenge

This is my submission for the challenge Kris is hosting at Stampin'D'Amour. Kris is a very talented artist whose blog is chock full of inspirational pieces, you should check out her blog Nostalgic Collage for some eye candy. Why don't you join in the challenge at SDA, everyone is welcome!

I used Ranger Distress Inks and the wrinkle free distress technique to create the background on this blank rolodex card. The ink colors used are Broken China, Shabby Shutters, Worn Lipstick, Vintage Photo and Black Soot. The stamps are by Brother Sister Design Studio and Cavallini. To give it an even older look, I dipped the rolodex card in beeswax. This background technique is so much fun because you never know what you are going to get and each background turns out different. If you want to see how to do this technique be sure to check out Tim's blog where he has it posted under his November Technique Tim Holtz.
