Just in case you haven’t noticed, Merry Monday is a Christmas Challenge all year:) Just in case you were wondering why I keep mixing Christmas with other holidays;) So yes, today, I’ve made a Christmas card, actually, I’ve made three! I’m going to be entering one of them into the challenge at Merry Monday #193🙂
This is the card I will be entering.
For this card I used a digital image from Raspberry Road Designs. I used the Small Stitched Rectangles from Lawn Fawn to cut my image, and an embossing folder from Sizzix.
The background paper is Real Red from Stampin’ Up! I also used silver Glimmer Paper from Stampin’ Up! This card is Simply Made with very few products:)
The next two cards are also Simply Made with almost the same products:)
This is also a Raspberry Road Designs digital image, I just rotated the image. When I was taking photos of the cards I realized you can’t rotate the words;) The digital sets are older, so if anyone would like to know what sets they’re from, please leave a reply:)
I used the same Real Red cardstock, embossing folder and cutting dies. I also added some Wink of Stella that you can now get from Stampin’ Up! I used the clear glitter, and it adds a really nice shimmer to the cards. I did use gold Glimmer Paper:)
I’ve tried to take a couple of photos to show the Wink of Stella.
Oh, there it is, can you see it? I used it on the swirly decorations, the gold stars, and the Holly leaf outlines. It actually looks much nicer in hand;)
Now it’s on to Easter! 🙂 My first guest is Deborah Caldwell from MI:) Deborah is fairly new to my hospitals, but she has already been featured here once before:)
These are so cute! Fun colors and papers for the kids! 🙂
More bright and cheerful cards! 🙂
I love the egg paper on both of these, cutting a strip behind the bunny is a great idea! 🙂 Thank you Deborah for donating to our kids, these cards will be loved! 🙂
My next guest is Ruby Haugen from MN:) Ruby sent in 20 Easter cards, but when she found out I could use more, she sent in 10 more:) How sweet is she?!
Ruby uses adorable images that she colors with, from what I can tell, mostly colored pencils:) Here are some similar images for boys and girls:)
Wonderful papers and colors! On the right are two of the same images with different papers and layouts. You know I love when card makers do this! 🙂
All of these cards came from the first set Ruby sent in:) If you look closely, you can see she made all her own envelopes in pretty pastels and brights! 🙂
Here are the cards from the second set:)
Here she’s used brights and pastels! I love the plaids and dots! 🙂
I love the colors and papers on these two cards! Plaids are my favorite and the colored stripes on the yellow background are just so pretty! 🙂 Ruby didn’t make the envelopes this time, but she put stripes of paper to match the cards on the envelopes:)
Thank you Ruby, I love all your cards and I know the kids will too! 🙂 I have such generous card makers on my team, I appreciate all of you! 🙂
Thanks for coming by today! 🙂 I hope you got some inspiration from all of the cards! 🙂 You can visit SAS4Kids own blog challenge here🙂 I hope to see you again soon! 🙂
