Again... quick...clean & simple!
I have many, many thank you cards to get out! So the next few posts will be very quick & simple cards.
This one is done with stampin' up pink & black paper...the birds are all one stamp from one of my fav. webs to shop...http://www.impressrubberstamps.com/ I stamped it on Stampin' up's whisper white (don't you just love that paper!) I did use Crystal lacquer on the words...just for fun...the ribbon is from Michael's, our local craft store. That's it...quick....and....easy!

Note to self...do not purchase the brown boxes any more.... the white boxes are much more sturdy & easy to work with....plus I made a template of all the pieces so now I can just cut & paste any scrapbook paper is no time flat! we shall see how long it takes me to get the next one done.Ha!
I made the tag...just covered a tag from the office supply store with white paper...added an already made tag from Michles...just glitzed it up a little with some stickles & a bow.... the "from the kitchen" stamp is from stampin up...so is the brad. the ribbon is from Michales crafts & the paper is from provo Craft.

Tomorrow is my Birthday! and my friend Ilene invited me over to do cards on Sunday. We had such a day! it was awesome.....First we did cards for a while.....then we went out for lunch at the Olive Garden...then we shopped a little at our local beautiful scrapbook/craft store, Recollections. It was the best day! Just relaxing & catching up! PLUS...She gave me this totally cool scrap booking carry-all-tote & beautiful card. The bag is actually one that fits inside the other. It has more pockets & zippers than I can possibly fill. It will be great when we do our group get togethers. AND...when my craft room is to messy....I can just fill my bag with what I need & move to the kitchen or the dining room table!......what an invention!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH ILENE!!!

The papers are Stampin' up...Pomegranate & celery & ivory... the hats & scarves are stamped & cut from scraps...the snowmen have diamond dust stickles on them...the edges are punched with Stampin' ups ticket punch. The ribbon is from Michale's craft store.
The shape/design is from one of my favorite bloggs to visithttp://stampingmoments.blogspot.com/
she always has the most unique designs.
After the Christmas cards comes thank you cards.... This card is stamped from an unmounted stamp I bought from G-Rated stamps at our local stamping convention last year. I colored it with water color crayons the mounted it on chocolate chip card stock from Stampin' up. The corners were punched with an EK Success corner punch I just picked up at Joann's. (thanks Marge!) The red paper is a scrap I had and the little thank you is an old stamp from stampin up...the little frame I made with my sizzix & die with more chocolate chip card stock . Then used my crop-a-dile & brown eyelets from stampin' Up.
This looks like a Christmas card but it is actually an envelope with the top cut off & the front decorated......it is cute for holding shopping lists, notes, mail, tags....etc. This one I made actually held the maps to the location of our office Christmas party. The holder is something that was shared by my friend Marge at our last group make & take.
I do believe all of the papers are from stampin' up. The snowflakes are punched with my Martha Stewart punch, the tag is made with the stampin' up tag maker. The ribbon is from Michales craft store...& you can't see it well but snowflakes & snowman are finished with diamond dust stickles.

I do like this card.....but it was not easy! I do not like to measure anything...kind of how I cook :-) so just sort of eyeballed the shape. Thought it turned out pretty good. The paper is stampin up's close to coco & vanilla. All the scaloppping is done with the Stampin up slit punch....I just love that! All other embellishments are of course from Michale's except the large brown eyelets, they are from Stampin up. This card fits into a 5 1/2 X 6" envelope.
