of the Christmas cards, anyway.
Jennifer McGuire is a genius. I love her work and when I saw this card on her blog I knew I had to try it. The stencil used for this one is a big round stencil, one I would not have given a second look. She saw potential in it and used it for Christmas trees! Brilliant! This was so easy and quick to make. Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for the trees, Wild Honey for the star. I die cut a star from a piece of lightweight cardstock and used that as the stencil. Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the hills, and an old Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment, stamped in red pigment ink and embossed with clear powder.
I made a shaker card! I only hope it survives the postal machines. I added some seed beads from my stash for the shaker part. The penguin stamp is by Stampendous, a 50% off Michael’s purchase last week. The patterned paper is from the Doodlebug Designs Frosty Friends 6 x 6 paper pad. The Merry Christmas stamp is from Clearly Besotted. I added a few sequins using Micro Glue Dots.
Same stamps and paper, but no shaking going on here. The sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink.
That’s it for me this Christmas. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my cards this year. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year! I will be spending New Year’s in Ohio with my awesome daughter and precious grandson. I can’t wait! Be prepared for more adorable grandson photos in January :-)
