Merry Christmas 2018!!


Happy, Happy Christmas crafty friends!!

We're off to the coast today to visit and spend Christmas day with family. We did our own Christmas last night because hubs don't have very much home time. 

Hopefully everyone is having a wonderful day, staying warm and spending lots of time with family and loved ones.

I'm sharing my LAST Christmas cards for the year...whew! That was a LOT of cards. I haven't made handmade Christmas cards or gifts for family and friends in over 2 years...I forgot just how long it takes. Hopefully I'll be more organized next year! lol


I created 12 of these in total, in 6 different distress ink color combos! And again I used Hero Art gold embossing powder for the stamping and the edges. I then splattered some gold Perfect Pearls all over both panels of each card. I also used some pretty clear sequins from Hero Arts with a some Glossy Accents on top.

I think this one is my FAV color combo!


Distress Ink Color Combo: Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry.


The blue is my second favorite I think...


Distress Ink Color Combo: Faded Jeans, Broken China and Tumbled Glass.


This rich red combo is actually the first ones I started with...


Distress Ink Color Combo: Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick and Wild Honey.


Green combo...


Distress Ink Color Combo: Mowed Lawn, Shabby Shutters and Antique Linen.


I was trying to achieve a night sky background with this combo...


Distress Ink Color Combo: Black Soot, Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean.


And of course, I had to have a purple....only because it's my favorite color! lol


Distress Ink Color Combo: Seedless Preserves, Milled Lavender and Spun Sugar.
