Golden Sleigh

 This was a popular card from a class I taught last week. And so easy too. Very few dies so not a lot of time invested to create. It is just gold mirricard.  You can add these dies to your pages too for the stunning eye grabbers.

O Christmas Tree

My black cat was sitting so pretty last year and I thought it'd make a cute 'dream of white Christmas' page. But black cats do not show up very well in darker rooms on photographs.

Dangly Ornament

 Trying something new. Instead of hanging something from a boring cutout circle...I loped off part of the card.
The small ornament is an IO die. The Merry Christmas is Cheery Lynn.

Urban Bloom

I had made this card for one of my recent classes but had used the tea rose for the center. Here is a simpler version with just a Candi Dot.

Holiday Houses

I must've really liked this paper since I ordered a lot of it and several times. It is pretty. The small poinsttias are MB as well as the houses.

Like Christmas

I usually use the Cheery Lynn poinsettias but had to shake it up this year and work with a smaller set from MB so all of you get more ideas.  Also am loving all the 'stitched' dies.

Metallic Poinsttia

Another poinsettia made from rose leaf dies. This is all metallic cardstocks that have s stunning look.

Fancy Leaf

Here is yet another leaf made into a poinsettia. This one is a MFT leaf. And the new MFT stitched flourish die that we really really like this fall.

Rose Leaf

Yesterdays card was using Cheery Lynn Build A Flower dies and todays is Cheery Lynn Rose leaf die. The fun lattice background is also a CL die.

Inked Blue Skies

I used Tim Holtz inks and inked the entire background and then added the tree and deer dies. And finished with White Flower soft to create the snow. Poof! A beautiful card. And easy.

Cheery Lynn Leaves

Last year I made a card out of the leaves showing how you can make poinsettias with them for more uses with your dies. So this year I worked on different versions.

Gingerbread man Slider card

This one was made for the Extrav but then a prettier paper arrived and I redid it for our monthly make-n-take so I will post then sometime in the future. They will learn how to make a slider card. Kids love them.

 There are sooooooooooooo many pretty papers this year that it was hard to choose which to use. And we still keep getting more beautiful papers in. The scallop die on the edge is also new by MB

Tree brads

 We have single brads for sale at PT and I was trying to think of a way to use the copper trees for our xmas Extrav and this is what I came up with.  If I get time I will be making some take-n-makes. You gals usually buy them quicker then we can make since all the hard work is already done.

Soft flake

This was one of my favorites this year. I love the color combo and the new corner die.
The pretty snowflake is MB. And there is that teeny bow again. I also designed one with the corner using sunflowers for one of our September make-n-takes.

Layered Deer card

 A lot of products used on this one card. But oh so pretty. I believe the idea was from Kittie C. blog.
I used Pan Pastels on the deer to color him.

Cheery Lynn had came out with a set of 4 large bird dies and I had my eye on it for months and finally got to use the cardinal die when we made cards for our extravaganza. This one I also taught in a class as well. The cones are IO and I used the stylus from behind to curve them a little.

Cardinal in Birch trees

This one was taught in my class this past week and then I made up some take-n-makes as well and I believe they are all sold out already. I used the IO birch tree set. And then added Stickles glitter to make the snow 'glisten'. The cardinals are pop dotted.

Merry Christmas

Another card from this past weeks class. Gals love coming to class and leaving with finished cards they can take pride in.
I had done this design a couple months ago as a Best Wishes when I first discovered the new teeny bow die. And then when we were knee deep in getting samples done for our Extravaganza....I did the same design but with the xmas die instead.

Teal and Red

I was trying to paper piece this one but for all the can't see the strip of package paper going down the middle much anyway.

White Christmas

I will try to upload a few more cards today from our Christmas Extravaganza. Slowly but surely I will get them all posted.
This one is using pierced circles and IO snowflakes. The simplicity should appeal to the gals short on time but who still want to make their own cards for Christmas.

Cancer Stinks

 We had our Annual Cancer Crop here last weekend and all the attendees got this cute skink with a Dove chocolate on the belly from the PT staff and I. We make the skunks here at Picture This. But I wanted to make a sample so they had an idea to run with once they received it. I added a flower I made using Cheery Lynn dies and Copic markers.  Stinking cute huh?

Let it snow

I love the colors and dies used to create this card. I finished it off with matching ink and a button. Poof! A card.

Seasons Greetings

Saw this sketch somewhere and used what we had in stock. I added liquid pearls for the snow on this one. The tree is MB Twiggy Tree.

Poinsettia party

This poinsettia embossing folder sold out during the extravaganza but any other can be substituted. I love the simplicity of it.

with joy

Another card from the Christmas Extravaganza. I love IO's pretty little bow die. And the white part is actually from Cheery Lynn tags....I only used the middle part.
