25 Days of Christmas Cards – Day 18

It’s day 18 of my 25 Days of Christmas cards inspired by Kristina Werner.  This is the only card in the series where I choose the card from the current year.  I’ve really enjoyed making these 9 x 3 1/2 inch cards.  I also had to resist using these alpacas on every card!  Here is the link to Kristina’s video and blog post.

I’ll be back tomorrow with Day 19!  Thanks for stopping by.

25 Days of Christmas Cards – Day 17

It’s day 17 of my 25 Days of Christmas cards inspired by Kristina Werner.  I’ve done a lot heat embossing during this series.  This is a great layout for larger sentiments and for using pattern paper!  Here is the link to Kristina’s video and blog post.

25 Days of Christmas Cards – Day 16

It’s day 16 of my 25 Days of Christmas cards inspired by Kristina Werner.  I’ve done a lot heat embossing during this series.  It still feels like magic to me and I love the look of white embossing powder on black.  Kristina used gouache on her card.  I had never heard of it before, but I bought some and tried it out.  Turns out, I was terrible at it.  I need lots of practice before I’m ready to share a card using it!  Instead of gouache, I used colored pencils on my card.  Here is the link to Kristina’s video and blog post.

I’ll be back tomorrow with Day 17!  Thanks for stopping by.

25 Days of Christmas Cards – Day 15

It’s day 15 of my 25 Days of Christmas cards inspired by Kristina Werner.  I love the look of paper strips that Kristina did with her card.  For my card, I used strips of green and red paper.  Then stamped this cute elf from My Favorite Things.  Here is the link to Kristina’s video and blog post.

25 Days of Christmas – Day 13

It’s day 13 of my 25 Days of Christmas cards inspired by Kristina Werner.  For today’s card, I was inspired by the gift card holders Kristina made in 2014.   These are the perfect holders for gift cards and so quick and easy to make.  Here is the link to Kristina’s video and blog post.

25 Days of Christmas – Day 12

It’s day 12 of my 25 Days of Christmas cards inspired by Kristina Werner.  For today’s card, I was inspired by the card Kristina made in 2015.  I had a lot of fun with this card!  I loved using the glitter paste on the background and adding glitter to Santa.  I was ready to add my Merry Christmas sentiment when I realized I had just received the Inappropriate Christmas stamp set from Picket Fence Studios.  I had to use the Big Poppa on this card!  Here is the link to Kristina’s video and blog post.

25 Days of Christmas – Day 11

25 Days of Christmas Cards – Day 10

It’s day 10 of my 25 Days of Christmas cards inspired by Kristina Werner.  For today’s card, I was inspired by the card Kristina made in 2013.  I have a ton of embossing folders that I never use, so glad I brought them out for this card.  I’ve used them several times since making this card!  Here is the link to Kristina’s video and blog post.

It’s day 9 of my 25 Days of Christmas cards inspired by Kristina Werner.  For today’s card, I was inspired by the card Kristina made in 2010.  Love this layout!  I get to use my pattern paper on this.  It was also fun to find a sticker to use as the O in Joy.  No stamps were used on this card.  Here is the link to Kristina’s video and blog post.
