5 Months 'til Christmas Blog Hop


5 Month until Christmas, oh my.  Have you started you shopping yet?  I haven't.  If you came here from the super talented Mary's blog then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to stop by my blog and want to start at the beginning then go to Sally's blog.
Once again our blog hop consists of 2 cards on each blog, one using a colouring medium and one using a die cutting machine. When Christmas comes around we will not have to worry about finding the time to get our cards done. I hope that you will play along with us.
My first card is using a free digital stamp from KL Dezigns.  The paper used on both of these cards is from the new Recollections Frosty Cabin stack that I picked up at Michaels.  Yes, Christmas stacks are in stores now.  I may have to pick up another one of these stacks, I love the papers in it.  The adorable little Christmas tree brad is by Spare Parts that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

 My second card was made using the Cricut Imagine and the Snow Angels cartridge.  I cut the house and  all of the layers and popped them up on pop dots.  I like to layer with the Imagine cuts to give it some dimension.  I also went over all of the snow with a Sakura glitter pen.  The sentiment was cut out using the Label Four Spellbinders die and then I trimmed off a bit from the top and bottom and then layered it on the red that cut using the same die.  I have to admit that I kept the two pieces that I cut off the sentiment. They look like little brackets.  Would you have kept little pieces like that?  I seem to keep everything.

Your next stop is the amazing Heather,

Tara said...

Love your cards! I used to keep everything but since unpacking from this move I am on a major purge. We are going to have one HUGE yardsale and I have not even started on the craft stuff yet (although I am positive that will not be as easy to purge lol)
