Christmas is just around the corner

As I mentioned, I have actually been able to get a little, very little, crafting done. This is the bookmark that I am making for the staff at DD's "school"(daycare). I learned how to make these at my upline's house a month or so ago and thought they were just waaayyyy cute!


Recipe:
Stamps: N/A
Paper: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red
Ink: Pacific Blue
Accessories: Chipboard, Pacific Blue ribbon, filigree brads, snowflake punch

This is a double treat because its an SU only project as well! I used chipboard at the top and inked it up with Pacific Blue. Then I added the whisper white square to the chipboard. I punched the snowflake out of Riding Hood Red and attached the filigree and brad. The ribbon is attached to the back on the whisper white and then covered by another piece of whisper white... I hope that makes sense. If it doesn't and you really want to know, let me know and I can take pics that explain better :-)

I also made some of my Christmas cards for this year. I used a beautiful Kinkade stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. I cased the card from SCS.



Recipe:
Stamps: The Night Before Christmas (CHF)
Paper: Basic Gray, Brushed Silver, Night of Navy, white
Ink: Versafine Smokey Gray
Accessories: Copics, Sakura Stardust Pen
