Peace and Joy

I decided to make a couple cards with the stamps I am using, hoping that helps me get more cards made a month.  These are from a set of stamps from Make cards magazine from 2018, I hadn't used them yet on cards and it was time I broke them out and used them.

On this card I cut around the sentiment after stamping it, I used a sketch for this one but forget to write down which one it was I used.

Make Cards, Novemeber 2018 - stamps, colored w/markers
Gemini - Torn edges circles die
Snowflakes from centers of another die
Elizabeth Craft designs - Silk Microfine glitter

Close up of the glitter I added for the snow

same stamp on this one I just colored them a little different

Make Cards, Novemeber 2018 - stamps, colored w/markers
PPD - Mini stitched banner and Stitched square dies
Stickles - Diamond

used the stickles for the snow on the second one

I like the results of both the stickles and the glitter on these but the stickles since they are a glue based glitter sure isn't as messy as using the glitter.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

These little guys are so cute, Connie! I am in love with the robin's special coloring, and your mouse's sweet "snowy" look in your first card! Beautiful cards, and you're on the way to Christmas 2020! hugs, de

Oh, I adore the stamp, Connie, and your cards are both beautiful! I love the snow on the first card. Too bad glitter has to be so messy, right? The Stickles on the second card give the snow an icy look. You're doing such a great job on your Christmas cards!
