Santa Baby (Revisited!)

A few days ago, I posted a Santa card for the Cards in Envy Santa Baby challenge.  I wasn't completely satisfied with the original, so I made another.
Much better.  The layout and patterned paper set off Santa much better, and I like the texture of the grosgrain ribbon.  Santa cut from the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge, beard embossed with Divine Swirls folder, black crystals for his eyes.

Blue Christmas

While I never liked the song, I love blue and silver for the holidays.  Try Stampin' On Tuesday has a sketch challenge this week:
Here is my version:

The patterned paper is a beautiful silver and blue that matches the metallic base.  The nativity is die cut with the same metallic paper, and layered on glitter paper.

Washi Washi Washi

Shopping Our Stash has the challenge Washi Washi Washi.  Anyone else thinking Brady Bunch?!? 

I am a bit of a washi tape hoarder buyer.  This white and silver set by Recollections is my most recent purchase.  Love the contrast with the red paper and ink!!

Festive or Melancholy?

The Color Throwdown has a beautiful (I think) combo this week:
My version:
I love these light and dark silver metallic papers, topped with a silver mirrored tree and star.  The snow is a pretty glitter paper, Recollections sentiment stamped in Staz-On ink.  I bought the tree die secondhand, not sure of the designer.   I think it is festive.  My husband says it is melancholy.  What do you think?

Santa Baby

Love that song.  Love the prompt from Cards in Envy!
Santa cut with my Cricut and embossed with Divine Swirls.  I added Flower Soft to his hat brim and pompom.  Recollections sentiment layered on SU! paper.

Shake It Up

The Paper Girls Challenge #164 it to Shake It Up.  
Pink parchment paper die cut with a Sizzix heart, tiny punched hearts, vellum window.  I layered the "love" three times using a Lawn Fawn die.  I really like this pink and grey combination for a love card!

Bright Shiny Objects

The House of Cards challenge:

These colors scream elegant Christmas!
I cut this quilt square die with shiny silver, shiny gold, matte silver, and gold flocked pearl papers.  YUM!!  The sentiment is heat embossed in fine gold powder.  This die is kind of like potato chips, can't eat just one, can't cut just one.  I made 8 more of these in various colors...  I think I have a problem!!!
