Most likely my last Christmas Cards this year

Yesterday I worked on a few more cards. But it is time to get them in the mail so I won't be doing many more Christmas cards.  Back to all occasion cards again.  But here are my last 2 cards.

The first one is really simple and is a 5 minute card made in under 5 minutes.  To see more of these kind of cards click here.

My next card took a little bit more time.  It is a HobbyDot card.  Very well known in Holland.  I have always like the looks of them but never done any.  I got some for my birthday this past year and finally got to use it.  Boy I have respect for the people using this method.  It took me at least 1 hour to make this card.  But here it is and I am quite pleased with it.

More Christmas cards again

Some more of my Christmas cards.  As you can tell I have been working very hard to get them all done before Christmas this year.

This one I made for a friend at a card making afternoon with my friends.  I really liked the 'free' draw of the branch.

Another card using embossing folders .  I misted the paper with shimmery paint first before I embossed it.  I got the idea from Carol and her version can be found here.

More to come!

Christmas Again

Some more of my Christmas Cards I have been making for family and friends.

This idea I got from Nancy Y and you can find her version of this card here.

I did not use the letterpress method but just embossed the white background.

This is an another sample.

Let me know what you think.

Time for Christmas cards

I have been working on my Christmas cards and getting ideas from the internet.

The following 2 cards are from the new CD from Technique Junkies called 3D & Fun Fold.  The CD can be purchased here.

These are cards I made for my grandchildren.

Faux Washi Paper

I really like the Faux Washi Paper technique in the Technique Junkies August/September 2011 newsletter.  I used the Michael Strong Cloisonne Dragonfly stamp.

The gold on the background shows better on the real card.

Now how do you like this!

Posting another card.  I had to make a 'Get Well' card for a friend.  I used the Sizzix Butterfly die and the Dot embossing folder.

Hope you enjoy this one as well.

My latest card.

I know it has been some time since I posted but now that summer has gone and winter is knocking at our door I will have more time to devote to my hobbies and my blogs.

This is another white on white card I created just a week ago and would like to share it with you.

See you again soon!

Another 5 minute card

These are my granddaughter's and son's birthday cards.  They have a birthday 1 day apart and I felt that giving them the same style card would be kind of fun.

A different look of the 5 minute card.

Here I used different shapes for the 5 minute card.  It makes a perfect valentine card for a loved one.

5 Minute Card

This afternoon I did a quick class with my friends to make the following card.

5 minute card
It was a quick and simple card to do.  The effect of the embossing really adds to the card.  The idea came form Lyssa's site.  Thank you Lyssa for this great idea.

Get Well Card

This card I made for a good friend of mine who had to undergo an operation and had to spent a couple of days in the hospital.  The operation went well so now she on her way to a speedy recovery.
