Christmas cards

I have been coloring images and making cards the last couple of days. Here are two with snowmen on them. The stamps are from Fun Stampers Journey in the Journey Holidays Trends mini catalog, the stamp set is Snowmen Days SS-0519, $20.95 and if you don't like fussy cutting there is a bundle with  stamps and dies, BD-0292, $34.10. The cardstock colors on the first one are Banana Cream CS-0087and Watermelon Fusion CS-0039 and Mirror Silver CS-0137. I used the Doily die DI-0105, Snow Blooms die DI-0253, Watermelon Fusion ink IP-0027 and Special Day Organza Ribbon AC-0316.
Not your traditional colors for Christmas but I love how these look.


The second card is done with the same stamp and die set Snowmen Days and the Snow Blooms dies.  The colors are Pool Play CS-0092, Whip Cream CS-0040 and Lavender Fusion CS-0028. Again not your typical Christmas colors but I love it. I also used Whip Cream ink IP-0009 for the snowflakes and sentiment and Journey White embossing powder IP-0098, Sparkle Silk IP-0126 and Special Day Organza Ribbon AC-0316.


You will find a link to both the Holiday Journey Trends mini catalog and the Inspiration catalog on the right.

What do you think, are the colors okay or are you a more traditional Christmas color kind of person?
Have a very blessed and wonderful week.
Hugs,
Delo

Christmas is coming!!!

This is an envelope I made to go in my A5 planner for Christmas. It is made with Fun Stampers Journey "Sleigh Ride" stamps and dies. Fussy cutting is not my favorite thing to do.




I used mostly Fun Stampers Journey products for this but the envelope flap was cut with a Tim Holtz Sizzix On the Edge die and the brads were some I had in my stash. Santa's sleigh and the reindeer are on Journey Foam Squares, I used red and whip cream washi tapes and the patterned paper is from the Christmas Cheer prints.
I love how it turned out. 
I hope everyone has a very wonderful and blessed day.
Hugs,
Delo

Scrappin Frenzy

I had a wonderful and productive time this weekend at Scrappin Frenzy. This is an annual event held at the Pecos River Conference Center, what a beautiful setting to scrapbook or make cards in.



It is put on by Kim Ballard, Raeleen Reed and Leanna Bell. The prizes (door prizes and challenge prizes) are awesome, the food is fabulous and camaraderie is unbelievable, you get to see old friends and new friends you haven't met yet.  I will be going back next year. Thank you Kim, Raeleen and Leanna!!

Class cancelled for October 25

We will not be having class on October 25, the line dancers at NMSRC are holding their Halloween party that day. Our next class will be on November 1. We are going to be making a Thanksgiving card with dry embossing.


It will be very similar to this card.
See you on November 1 (where has this year gone?)
Hugs and blessings,
Delo
