One Christmas, One Mojo and My First Sarah Kay


Happy Friday!
I have a few cards to share with you tonight. The first one is one of this year's Christmas cards. I used white, real red and kiwi kiss cs. I pierced the top corners of my white base panel and embossed the red panel using a Fiskars embossing plate. Someday I'll get a Cuttle Bug, the embossing plates work good, but when I have a good sized panel to do, my arm really feels the burn!! I stamped my tree twice on kiwi cs and cut them out. I adhered one image to a white punched oval matted with real red, and added part of my second image over that with dimensionals. I also added some
Stickles and dots to my tree for a fun look. I punched a strip of white cs with my Martha Stewart Lacy Scallop punch, stamped my sentiment with black ink on kiwi cs, punched it out with an oval punch and adhered it to the assembled card with dimensionals.


I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch for my next card, along with this weeks SCS Color Challenge~ taken with teal, real red and baja breeze. I used my favorite snowman stamp (Holly Berry House), and broke in my new Martha Stewart snowflake punch.




And finally, my last card to post tonight features my 1st EVER beautiful Sarah Kay stamp!! I just love these sweet images she has created. This one is Picnic of Daisies. I colored her with stamp pads and a water pen and used a circle cutter for the panel. This card was made with this sketch from Jen del Muro.
Well, that's about it for tonight. Thanks for stopping by~ have a great week end and don't forget to smile a lot!! :):)
Hugs and Smiles~

Wow you have been busy!!! I was never able to get the Fiskars embossing plates to work well for me so I broke down and bought a Cuttlebug...maybe Santa will bring you one! I love all your cards; you have such a wonderful style and design-sense!

Such a beautiful trio, Denise! The first two are so colorful and festive and I just love the Sarah Kay stamp! Lovely all around! I hope you get a cuttle bug for Christmas, Denise, because it's awesome and you deserve it!
