Yup….you guessed it, CAS Christmas CARDINAL 😉  He he he….  Hope that this CAS card inspires you.  I had fun trimming off the edge of the Whisper White CS Top Note die cut piece and then distressing it too.  Can you see that?  Enjoy!!!

Yes, here is another Cardinal card, but it’s a CHRISTMAS Cardinal 😉  I am a University of Kentucky fan through and through.  My blood runs blue in spite of the very Red-White color scheme to this card.  I wanted it to be monochromatic.  Hope you like it!

Here’s another card for your viewing pleasure (all 3 of you that are still with me – LOL!!!) 🙂  No commentary.  I hope you are all having a wonderful week!!!

I am still here.  I’ve been having some dental issues and it has been very stressful.  My little one also got sick, and the husband has been home and then gone again several times since getting back from his deployment.  I finally got to stamp because I had a new round of Stamps in the Mail coming up.  To get inspired, I started with a CASE of a card that I really liked.  I liked using the “A Cardinal Christmas” stamp set and not use either of the images included, but only the sentiment.  Anyway, the card I CASE’d was by card crazy over at SCS.   I will probably space out the other cards I made just because I don’t see much stamping time in my near future.  I hope you like this one!

Christmas Card-001

So, I am just loving My Digital Studio (MDS) if you can’t tell!  🙂  I decided today that I would start playing around with possible Christmas photo cards.  This card is not the one I will send – can’t share that until it gets mailed!!!  We still have to take a new family picture, but I wanted to get an idea for how it might look.  The great thing about MDS is that you can make your own Christmas photo card.  You know, the ones that are like a card on a picture – like a postcard, and people usually get them from Wally-World and other such places?  Well, I got so many last year that I thought maybe it’s time I jump on the bandwagon and do something easy so that it’s not just one more stress at this time of year that’s supposed to be about something else – not about the shopping and to-do lists….  I am going to look into how much it will cost to send the finished card to a photo shop to have them reproduced so that I can do it locally and do it one at a time until I get one that I like.  I am fairly certain that they do make 5×7’s in most stores that print pictures, so that’s the size I’m sticking with in MDS.  We’ll see how it turns out!!

PS – this was one of the “Designer Templates” in MDS so all I did was insert my picture, add some stitching to the ribbon and add the text!!!  Gotta love that!!

Oh, oh, oh!!


I haven’t stamped, but I found this card that I hadn’t posted on here yet and thought I’d put it up so that there’s something pretty to look at rather than my lame-excuse-post that you can see previous to this one 😉  No time to post the exact details, except that everything used is SU! and it’s all current so either in the Idea Book & Catalog or the Holiday Mini Catalog.   The trees are that lovely Patterned Pines Hostess Level I stamp set in the HMC and I finally inked up SU!’s fabulous Woodgrain Background stamp.  Enjoy!!!

PS – I’m out of town for this week and will be back on Saturday and hope that my husband has finally made it home (this is a pre-scheduled post) so that maybe some stamping time is in my near future 😉

I was recently in a Holiday Mini card swap and all of the ladies have received theirs by now, so I thought I would share mine.  I’m sorry if you don’t like CAS because that’s what the bulk of my cards are.  I venture into more layered/embellished card-making realms every now and then, but as you’ll see, this one is not too fancy.  I really like it and could easily make it as my Christmas cards as it was pretty easy to duplicate quickly 10 times for the swap.  That’s the beauty of the new Ornament punch and the Big Shot (for the Top Note die layers).

Paper:  Kraft and Whisper White CS, Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP (Holiday Mini Catalog)
