Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone! I haven't been able to post on my blog for awhile. My pictures would not upload. I hope you are having a good week. We are having beautiful weather here. These are 2 Christmas cards that I have done for some challenges on the Two Peas stamping board. They are having Septober Fest with many fun challenges that will go through October 16th. My cards will be mostly Christmas cards since I need to get started on them. I have many to do! On the first card we were to use embossing. I heat embossed the reindeer and the snow swirl. On the second card we were to use Distress Inks and do some Tim Holtz techniques. I made a background using Distress inks and spritzing. I also used some crackle paint on the left bottom and stamped over it with the Santa. Then I used my distress tool to rough the edges of the card. These have been fun to make. Stay tuned for some more challenge cards!

These are so pretty April! I can never get distress inks to look this nice.

These are pretty! But I love the first card more. Loving it for the embossed part and the choice of color!

Oh My! April how gorgeous! The stamp images are magnificent, but I especially like how you've tied them all in together! The "gilded" edges are a beautiful touch - SO PRETTY!
