Merry Christmas & Happy New Year - Take Two!

Hi folks,

I'm back today to share another Beary Christmas card inspired by the same workshop as yesterday's card.



This is another one that is quick and easy to whip up - and is an easy to mail one. No extra postage required!

Once again, I used the Beary Christmas Cardmaking Stamp set and embellished with some red enamel gems from my stash.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Hi folks,

Yes - I'm still posting Christmas cards even though it's more than two months away yet! Get started early and there isn't a rush closer to Christmas!




This card is another clean and simple one featuring the CTMH Beary Christmas papers. Again, inspired by the cards in a 10 card workshop that uses only one sheet of patterned paper and one sheet of each of three card stock papers.

The original design for this card did not have a sentiment on the front but I thought it needed it. so, I just added the sentiment from the Beary Christmas Card Making Stamp Set in addition to the wreath on the centre panel.

 As always, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Holidays

Hi folks,

Back again today to share another card inspired by the bonus cards from the Beary Christmas Scrapbooking WYW kit from CTMH.



I switched up the background paper - I used the snowy print instead of the light strings - and used red enamel gems as my embellishments instead of the green Beary Christmas dots as I have a LOT of those in my stash.

It works!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Joy

Hi folks,

Just sharing another Christmas card using the Beary Christmas papers from CTMH.




In case you are wondering, I used the Beary Christmas Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts set to make the wreath and sentiment on this card. This card comes together very quickly. It's based on one of the optional cards you can make with the WYW Beary Christmas Scrapbooking Kit.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Happiest Holidays

Hi folks,

I'm back today to share another of the cards from the CTMH Merriest Wishes Cardmaking Workshop Your Way.



This was a fun one to make because - that tree patterned paper is actually custom-created using the stamps that come in the kit! I love it! I used the three different green inks recommended in the kit along with a red ink and - Voila! My own paper!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Merriest Wishes

Hi folks,

As you can tell from my last couple of posts, I've been working my way through the Workshop Your Way Kits in the current Holiday Expressions Idea Book from CTMH.

Today I'm sharing a card from the Merriest Wishes cardmaking WYW Kit.


I quite like the simple but pretty design of this one. Just the right amount of sparkle. The design is not TOO dimensional - making it great for mailing out purposes.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

You're the Best

Hi folks,

I'm back today to share the second card from the CTMH Happy Thoughts cardmaking workshop your way.



Again, even though this workshop uses papers from the Cats & Bats collection, the card is not at all Hallowe'en-y.

The kit instructions recommend using the Basic Tags Thin Cuts. Mine are on the way so I improvised by just cutting my paper appropriately.

I think I'll make another version of the card - using the other side of the orange paper - the black diagonal stripe as I think that would look quite elegant. And maybe swap either the pink or grey cardstock for the glittery bashful or silver paper..

As always, thanks for stopping by!
