Merry Reindeer Penguin

Another card made using the tutorial from Kristina Werner on Day One in my Holiday Card Workshop. This one has a few differences from the one I posted earlier this month. One being that I've turned my Stampin' Up Owl into a reindeer. And two, I applied textured Snow through my stencil instead of gold paste. I really like this card and would like to make more of them in the future. On to 2015.

Big Holiday Wishes

I took a tip from Kristie who was featured on the Operation Write Home blog and tried to make as many cards as I could from one paper pad. She uses the adorable 6x6 pads that are so prominent now. I have a couple of 12x12 pads from Christmases past that I would like to finish off this year. Thus, I started an assembly line of cards. Quite a few were made with the silver grey palette. I hope to make many more cards using her techniques. She's a master (or mistress) of quantity quality card making.

Papertrey Penguin

Another Pompom pal from Papertrey. I think these little critters are adorable. Colored with Distress Markers. Papers are from that same Doodlebug pad I've been using all season. Six more shopping days.

American Modernist Cardinal

This card was made earlier this year when Farley, Nancy and I had a Shoebox card-making evening. Each person brought a shoe box containing the parts and pieces necessary to assemble a card for which we provided a ready-made sample. For Farley's share, she provided pieces cut on her Klic-N-Kut cutter to make cardinal cards. These clever cards were inspired by Cincinnati-based American Modernist artist Charley Harper whose work I adore. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much I liked making them.

Merry Mixed Media

Another card panel from the May Flaum mixed media class at Scramp Camp in Fairfield. The trees were cut on Silhouette several years ago and languishing in my Christmas stash. Finally time to use them.

Warm Wishes

I spotted a cool watercolored snowman on Pinterest and decided to try to interpret it using Stephanie Barnard's snowman2build from The Stamps of Life. I am very happy with the results.

I can't really provide many details on this card because I made it at a recent Scramp Camp class with May Flaum. I do know it uses several Tim Holtz tools & designs and it's way out of my usual comfort zone. But I really like it. And so does hubby. So perhaps I should stroll out of my comfort zone more often.
