Iris stocking

This was my first Iris fold, a friend sent me patterns, instructions & a really nice card so I wanted to give it a try. If I'd known it'd turn out this well I would've picked a Christmas red, guess I can call this beginner's luck. I did the top part with ribbon.

Making Friends

This is another one of my favorite stamps from High Hope Stamps. This one I colored with my aqua brush & water colors. It was nice taking a break from all the Christmas cards I've been making lately.

Snow Globes

I used my circle punch to make the snow globes, then angled my corners to add the base. I thought this was a neat idea.

Snow Flakes

Snowmen & snowflakes are my favorites to make as Christmas cards, they have such a happy look to them.

Faux Linen

This is a faux linen technique I tried where you sand glossy card stock both vertically & horizontally, then sponge color on.

Skater on Frozen Pond

This is one of my favorites. I stamped Frozen Pond from High Hope stamps, colored, added some Puffy Paint & glitter for the snow. I 3D my happy little snowman form Memory Box stamps, a little layering & that was it.

Snowflakes Glitter

This one I brayer the Snowflakes embossing folder, added glitter to the flakes, punched, colored my favorite snowman punch & added a 3D snowflake with a few gems.

Winter Village with Color

These 2 were embossed with Winter Village folder. The one on the left I brayerd the folder & like it. The one on the right I brayred the wrong side of the folder so tried inking direct with the ink pad, not so sure I'm happy with it, don't like the streaks.
