Have Yourself a MERRY Little Christmas

What a busy time of year! I figured today I would take a break from my baking and share the Christmas cards I sent this year. I didn't make nearly as many as I normally do because we had all new windows installed in our house and that all happened the first week of December...kind of bad timing! At least it was fairly warm, so that could have made things much worse. Getting everything back in order and painting all the new woodwork around each window (3 coats each!) was a much bigger job than I thought it would be. I've decided painting trim ranks right up there with painting ceilings...not much fun! I would rather have been stamping for sure!

I made a variety of cards using the Delicate Ornament Framelits. These are Blackberry Bliss and Silver. It was such a gloomy day I couldn't capture the true color, they looked so much more elegant in person.

These cards were inspired by a card I previously share here.

The ornaments look so pretty cut from Foil Paper and layered on Shimmer Paper. I didn't have a lot of the Mossy Meadow pattern of DSP left from the Home For Christmas pack, so I went though my huge stack of patterned paper to find an alternate print that would work, and made several that look like this card...

I sure wish I had the new Die Brush Tool that will be available in the upcoming Occasions Catalog when I cut all these ornaments out! I received my pre-order a few days ago and tested out this tool and it works fantastic! It helps remove all the little unwanted bits from intricate die cuts.

Last but not least, I made a half dozen of these little cuties...
I absolutely LOVE that little Bambi look alike! After fussy cutting each one I covered with a layer of Crystal Effects. This one was a little time consuming, so I mainly sent out variations of the Delicate Ornament cards showed above.

This will probably be my last posting until after Christmas, so I want to wish you all a very MERRY Christmas filled with LOVE, family, laughter, wonderful food & PEACE. To those that will be safe!
