Webster's Pages Christmas Cards

Here are a few Christmas cards that I made using last year's papers by Webster's Pages. They are pretty self explanatory and yes, very simple but effective I think. Webster's Pages have gorgeous papers that are so easy to use for cards in this way. The I felt the two 'Believe' cards didn't need a greeting on the front, the paper saying it all. Rather than a 'Merry Christmas' on the pink silk card I really liked the 'Christmas Spirit' sentiment which seemed to blend with the paper, if you know what I mean.
It's been a relatively fine day here after all the rain we've had. Very very humid. Thank goodness for air conditioning.
I hope to have another clock finished for friend of mine by Wednesday afternoon. It's all catching up with me too fast, Christmas that is.
Hope everyone is well and thanks for visiting.

Snow Globe Ornament Cards

These cards were made to accomodate the Yuletide Snow Globe stickers by K & Co and Vicki Burdick had the perfect card on her blog for me to case. I've kept to her sketch but have changed the punches, papers and colours. Please excuse the quality of the photos, I was in a tearing hurry this morning and had to get them photographed quickly. Two of these cards were orders and the girls bought the other two on the spot, so all four are gone. They were absolutely rapt with them because of the dual use, card and ornament.

The snowflakes were cut with different MS punches out of glitter cardstock.
Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla and the retired Ruby Red Stampin' Up cardstocks were perfect with these papers. The green cardstock is Bazzill.
The gold cord is unfortunately retired Stampin Up as well. I thought the bling added a bit of glitz to match the shimmer in the snow globes. Love that Petals-A-Plenty SU embossing folder.
I'm really chuffed with these cards and thank Vicki for her inspiration. Hope you like them too. Thanks for visiting.

Judi's birthday clock

Yep, another clock, this time for my friend Judi. All the girls in our little craft group are getting clocks this year. Judi's is the last one. This time, instead of rubons, I used the stamps that Kaisercraft have out now. These stamps are the sayings that they used to have in rubons. I'm a little disappointed with how faint they look compared to rubons but I think that my Stazon black inkpad needs reinking. The papers are Websters Pages with flowers, charms and other embellishments from my stash.
Today should see the end of my other off the page projects so will get them on here as soon as I can.
Thanks once again for visiting.
