Just for fun

I've been working hard trying to get caught up.  This time of year is always so crazy busy.  Here are a couple of cards and some tags that I have been working on.

Last year my friend, Vicki Dutcher made a card using a Christmas tree punch.  I thought it was the prettiest little tree ever and immediately bought it.  This is the tree.  I punched it out of GKD Grass Green card stock.  I used some white glue that I watered down, so I could paint it on the tree and then sprinkled with some of Martha Stewart's Limeade Glitter.  After it dried, I sprayed it with a sealer so the glitter would stay put.  I love the background with the Fair Isle Border stamp from PTI.

The Recipe:
PTI Fair Isle Borders
PTI Christmas Cheer die
MFT Stitched Arch Stax die
Lil' Inkers Stitched Scallop Border - inside
EK Success Christmas Tree Punch
MS Limeade Glitter

Isn't this the cutest die set?  I made this for a sweet lady I know who is going through some health problems.  I was hoping to cheer her up and bring a smile to her face.  The set is from MFT and is called Hug in a Mug.  Everything on this card is from MFT, even the patterned paper.

Here are a few of the tags I have been working on.  I didn't keep track of all of the supplies I used, but isn't it fun to combine your stamps and dies.


  1. Sharon these are such darling creations! I sort of want to hug them, that's how cute they are! The first is so cozy with it's cross-stitched snowflakes and the second just stole my heart. You really know how to work the tiny details - like that vellum "steam". Perfection! I totally pinned that cocoa card and I think you should share it in the Coffee Loving Papercrafters facebook group!

  2. WOW!! you have been one busy lady. The Christmas tree card would be my favorite if it was possible to pick a favorite. They all are just too sweet.

  3. Holy smokes these are all fabulous! Love the sweater stamp, so pretty.....your hot chocolate is so yummy....and those tags!!! Love that shape, who makes that one. Each one is a little work of ART! TFS!
