Are you finished your Christmas cards yet? If not here are some more for inspiration..

Only "2" more days till Christmas!!  Are you finished making all your Christmas cards yet??

I think this will be the last post I do before Christmas, so I though that I would show you a few more Christmas cards in case you are still working on yours, so I hope you get some inspiration from these :)

This one is made using a Magnolia Edwin Stamp.  I really like working with Magnolia stamps, they are so fun to colour!....

A closer look at Edwin all tangled up in his lights.....

My second card I want to show you, I made for my friend Sara who LOVES owls.  I found this free digi download stamp at Scrappy Fairy ...

A Closer look at the colours of the Christmas owl...
Santa Hat & Candy Cane:  R29,R27,R24,R22 + White Glaze Pen

The Merry Christmas sentiment on the front of the card is from the $1.50 bin at Michaels and stampped in Scarlet Red Cats Eye.  The frame around the owl is Spellbinders Nestabilities - Lacey Circles.

My third card was a card I made for my friend Linda who is a little bit of of turtle freak :)  This image I found on a kids Colouring Book Pages site.....Isn't he just so cute!

Here is a closer look at how happy the little turtle is slidding down a snowy hill in his shell.....

Eye:  B91
Snow:  BG0000,B0000
You can not really tell in the photo, but I also heat embossed snowflakes on in the sky with clear embossing powder to give the picture some dimention.  Also I heat embossed the circle sentiment in silver embossing powder.  The sentiment is from Michaels $1.50 bin and is from the December set.

And my fourth and final card before we break for Christmas holidays is my Mistletoe Mice from Stampaive that I made for my neighbours as they are a newly dating and such a sweet couple, so I thought that they deserved a cute card....

Creatures were stirring!

With only 4 more days till Christmas, you should have all your decorating completed (well hopefully), but if not maybe these little guys can help you out.....

I am soooo in love with House Mouse Design stamps!  They stamp so nice and are wonderful to colour with your copics!  The stripe paper is from Michaels Recollection Christmas paper pack, and the red cardstock is Bazill Polk-a-dots.  The Merry Christmas stamp is an old wooden block that I have had for many many years (long before I was scrapbooking and cardmaking) so I am not sure on the brand.

Here is a close up of the little mice....
Mouse Faces:  E11, E00, E000, E02
Left Mouse:  E47, E44, E43
Right Mouse:  W7, W5, W3

Rope: R29, R27, R24
Clothes Pegs: E42, E41, E40
Light Bulbs:  R29, R27, R24, R22, Y17,Y15, Y13, Y11

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
* House Mouse Design - Challenge #109 Warm Fuzzies
* One Crazy Stamper - Christmas/Holiday Challenge

Thank you for visiting today, I would love any comments that you may have. 

Wishing all a Wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

"Olive" the other Reindeer

Only 5 more days till the Big Guy comes to your house with Rudolph and the gang.

I made this card for my very good friend Karen and her family :) and as I was colouring it I started to sing...

Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, had a really shiny nose
And if you ever saw him, you would even say it glows.
"OLIVE" the other reindeer, used to laugh and call him names,
They never let poor Rudolph, join in any reindeer games....

A Christmas Story Card for my Honey!

Wow look at me, two posts in one day, whoo hoo!  After you finish checking out this post scroll down to view my "Kraftin Kimmie Christmas Cards". 

For those of you that know my crazy hubby, you know that his favorite Christmas movie that he makes me watch every year is "A Christmas Story", for some reason he thinks it is a "Classic" and funny as all heck!  Must be a guy think I thing!

Well with that being said, I was on a blog (DZ Doodles) and found a free digi stamp of the leg lamp from A Christmas Story movie and knew as soon as I saw it that I HAD to make my hubs a card with it for this Christmas.  I looked into purchasing him the actual lamp for Christmas to put in his Man Cave, but it was way out of our budgeted price range, so the card will have to do for this year, he he he.

A close up of the lamp....
Leg: E11, E00, E000
Shoe: C9, C7, C5
Base: E29, E27, E25
Lamp Shade: Y17, Y15, Y13

The printed paper is from this years Michaels Recollection Christmas Paper Pack, the mirrored red cardstock is from my stash and sorry to say I have had it for so long I do not remember the brand name.  I inked the card base and the printed paper with Catseye Scarlette Red and the candy cane ribbon I used was from Michaels.

I am entering this card into the following challenges;
Sasy Studio Design -Christmas Movie challange
One Crazy Stamper Christams/Winter

I hope that you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed making this card.  Hope to see you back soon. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

Gift Wrapping Elf

Hello blogger friends!  Sorry to have been away for so long, had some family matters to deal with and was not able to blog or play in my palace.

Today I have a wonderful Christmas card to show off to you.....

And the inside with sentiment......
*Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie Gift Wrap Elf and Interior Christmas Sentiments
* Patterned Papers: Jillybean Soup, Christmas Eve Chowder 6x6 pad
* Cardstock: Creative Memories Green Apple
* 5x7 Card and Envelope
* 3D pop squares
* Stampin Up Jewlery tag punch
* Merry Christmas sentiment for tag
* Ivory twine from the $ store
* Chestnut Brown and Lime Cats Eye liquid chalk
* Copic Markers (colours lissted below)

A close up of the coloured image......
* Skin: E11,E00,E000
* Clothes: R81,R83,R85,B02,B01,B000
* Hair: E59,E57,E55

* Ribbon Wheel: E59,E57,E55
The present and the ribbon were both paper pieced with the matching patterned paper and cardstock used on the card.

This card was very fun to make and for me it was pretty exciting because I did not use traditional Christmas colours which I usually do, so for that I am proud of myself!!  :)

I hope you enjoyed this post and I also hope to be back real soon with more cards to show you.  Have a great day and I will see you soon.
