Christmas & Birthday

Still lots of goodies, so check out my sale pages.  Leave me a comment if you want anything. 

Having trouble getting blog posts written.  I can see why people like using IG--everything is faster.  Just doesn't give you the same connection with people--at least not to me.  Here are some cards from IG & others never posted that I thought you might like to see.
First is hubby's December BD card which I made with The Stamp Market Dotted Tree die set.  I was thrilled to be able to get it with the gift certificate I won. 
If I was just getting started in this hobby, my house would be full of products from TSM!  Fun to use a piece of a very old soft, green, metallic cardstock.  It reminds me of hubby's favorite Porsche color which he calls Champagne Green.  Of course he asked me why I didn't get him the car--haha!  I used a tiny dauber to add the dots of Versafine Clair Acorn.  Love being able to use one my wooden stars without worrying about postage.  The very old Paula Best sentiment fit perfectly & I added a little gloss to the star.  I'm entering Virginia's Show & Share & SSS Monday.

When I die cut the tree, I didn't think about leaving margins so I could use the negative space.  But I had an idea for a card, so I cut it again.
This time I used a darker green cardstock & backed the negative space with a beautiful champagne glitter cardstock.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  The very old PrintWorks sentiment was stamped on a double vellum strip made from a scrap.  I'm entering Die Cut Divas.

When I start signing Christmas cards I always find some in my stash I don't really like or they have too much dimension.  Stephanie's MFT video inspired me to make a few quick, flat cards. 
I used a PB snowflake set that was part of a prize from Virginia quite awhile ago.  The inks are VersaMagic Night Sky & Aegean Blue.  The sentiment is Altenew Mini Christmas I got after Christmas last year.  I'm entering Stamping Sensations.

Enough for now--time to do a little baking.  Wishing all of you a lovely holiday season.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  3. Great cards Greta. Love your trees - especially your hubby's birthday card. And your snowflake cards are just delightful - hope the baking when well. I glazed the ham today, and made some chocolates.

  9. That is a pretty little tree and I like both the positive and negative versions you've shared! Happy belated birthday wishes to the hubs. Too bad the card wasn't attached to the Porsche LOL!! Love the trio of snowflakes cards, so pretty. I haven't ventured in to Instagram yet for the same reason, it seems too quick. I like those connections too!
