Day 209 ICAD

Day 209 ICAD...

I used my multi-gilded leafing all over this after I stamped it.  I just love the golds and copper and the reds and greens.  You can't tell it here, but it is really glitzy looking in person.  I love this.  Love using the leafing stuff. :-}

Day 208 ICAD..

Day 208 ICAD...

I stamped this in purple and then embossed it in clear embossing powder.  I used my yellow paint to fill in the white areas of the cs.  Index card looks a little wet, 'cause of the clear embossing spots here and there. :-}

My Christmas Cards for Family and Friends...

Christmas Cards:

Hi there,
These are some of the Christmas cards that I made for this year.  I used my Sizzix Eclips machine, and my machine cut all the parts out for these cards.  Some say "Merry Christmas" and some just have Christmas trees and some say Fa la la la la...
I was on a roll with  my machine before my machine started to act funny and not want to work anymore.  I've had my Eclips for three years and never gave me a problem, till this past week.  So, I didn't get all my cards made, to those who didn't get one of these cards, what can I say, I'm sorry and will be making some with my rubberstamps and other goodies, and will send over the holidays. That includes in the New Year first week.  
 Thanks to all of you who have sent me wonderful cards for me and my family... okay, on with the show...

This is the front of the card, which I embossed with my Snowflake folder and used me Viva decor paints on top of the embossed snowflakes.

This is the inside of the card, when you open the card up the middle (trees and flakes) pop outward, to make it a pop up card.  I used my favorite foil cardstock that I got at Mikes. 
Like I said, some say Merry Christmas and other say Fa La La La, and then just trees and snowflakes. 


Day 199 ICAD..

Day 199 ICAD..

I used my Washi tape, which is in bright colors... Orange, yellow, lime.  I wanted to use the saying... So I hope you can see the washi colors that are more on the "Summer Side"... (get it? lol :-) )
The other cardstock is the foil cardstock again with the christmas theme.  I love this cardstock and glad I got it with my coupon at Mike's. :-)


Day 198 ICAD...

Day 198 ICAD...


On here, I gold embossed the pine bough and used a snowflake punch and punched out the snow flakes from the foil cardstock and purple glitter embossing powder for the tiny christmas lights that are in the pine.  White embossed the Merry Christmas greeting. 

Day 197 ICAD...

Day 197 ICAD...


I used my multi-color gold leafing for the candy jar, and again, used my Silver Bells embossing powder for the candy.  You can't see the sparkle of the candy but, it's there... lol :-)

Day 196 ICAD...

Day 196 ICAD...


This was Silver Bells embossing powders, the cardstock is a glossy blue.

Day 195 ICAD...

Day 195 ICAD...


I got a Christmas card in the mail with the envelope that matched.  These old fashioned Santa faces were all over the envy.  I had to cut them out and put them on my index card.  I love the old fashioned Santa's.  lol :)

Day 194 ICAD...

Day 194 ICAD...


Here, I used my Viva Decor paints and rub-ons plus sent it through an embossing folder.  Stamped the Christmas bulbs in Silver Bells embossing powder... You probably can't see it, but there is silver and tiny hints of gold glitter in the Silver Bells embossing powder. 

Day 193 ICAD...

Day 193 ICAD...


I used my Gold foil Cardstock that I got at Michael's with my %50 coupon... The foil colors are silver and gold and copper with different background designs... I also used red embossing tinsel for the stamped image.  I then took the dollar alpha stamps and stamped on cs and then used the tiny little dollar punch (all from Micheal's store-dollar bin) and put them on the index card...Fa la la la....  lol :-)

Day 192 ICAD.. Back on the ICAD Wagon again..lol

Day 192 ICAD... I'm back...

I'm back on the ICAD wagon again, I was falling a tad behind in making them as well as getting them posted... I'm trying to stay in the holiday mood, and maybe, just maybe me making them for the holiday will help. :-)

Hubby saw these and said "oh look, let's give them a try"... So use to those cherry ones..lol  and I do love blueberries too... So why not... right?  They are good and I think I like them better than the cherry ones... lol :-)

The ornament is done in embossed copper and I used crystal ice glitter to fill the inside of the ornament. to bad you can't see it here in the photo... it really sparkles and looks so pretty.  I should have used a darker type of glitter.

From One of my new Pen Pals... Love Love how she did this....

Happy Happy Pen Pal Mail... Look how she sent this and how stinkin' cute it is:

 The letter arrived as you see up above... All tied up with the cute jute string... All in place and nothing torn.   Can you believe it... Dang, the post office did something good and didn't let their machines chew it up.... lol  I love this..

And when I open the envy up...what cuteness appears... This is so Stinkin' awesome Audrey... She is into origami, and the two fishes on the right hand side are Fish Pockets... at the top the fish pockets open to put cuteness inside as well.  This all held together by that fun Washi Tape we all love and use.  Unbelievable.. Everything in it's place and nothing falling out.  The middle pocket has cute Washi fish paper clips and cute papers and tags in the pocket, and then the gift itself is the letter, which she has wrapped jute string around the letter and washi fish hanging on the string... The little note in green says "Drop Me A Line"... OMG girls... The middle green tag says "for you" and the one with the "fish origami pockets" say "Fish Pockets".  I love this.  I just had to blog about it... tee- heee -teee-heee Woooo-hooooo. Thanks Audrey, working on your letter now as I type.  Thanks so much, this is going to be such a fun pen pal adventure.  And thanks to all my other pen pals, if it weren't for you, my mailbox wouldn't exist ... lol  You make me do a happy dance everyday over all the Happy Mail that You All Send me.  Your letters are Treasures. Thanks and hugs.
