Quick Cranberry Christmas Cards

Good morning!  These cards are similar to the ones I posted on Monday, but I used DCWV's Cranberry Christmas stack on these.  I absolutely LOVE the color scheme of that paper stack!  It really made some elegant cards, even though they were quick to make.
 On each of these cards, I used Gina Marie Designs' Stitched Rectangles and Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangles to create the layers.  The paper with these word squares on it made these cards so quick!
 Rhinestones and pearls on all of these cards are from Oriental Trading.  I used the following Trendy Twines for embellishing:  Cranberry, Midnight, Totally White, and Totally Red.
The panels with the words on are popped up with thin foam tape.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Quick Christmas Cards-Version 1

Hello all!  I am all about making FAST Christmas cards this year!  Actually these came together so fast that I almost feel guilty about it ;)  The papers from DCWV's Christmas Plaid stack are what made these so easy to create!
 I simply selected the page with these wonderful sayings on it and fussy cut them out.  I then used various dies from Gina Marie Designs' Stitched Rectangles and Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangles to create the layers.  (If you haven't checked out her dies yet, you really need to!  They are super reasonable!!)
 I accented the cards with Nuvo Crystal Drops, Rhinestones, and Candy Cane and Holly Berry Trendy Twines.
 The panels with the words on are popped up with thin foam tape.
What do you think about my quick cards?  They sure were a time saver for me!  I will have more posts to share later with similar quick cards.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Christmas Sleigh

Hello crafty friends!  It is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I have always loved the Santa's sleigh in the Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes set, but hadn't ever made it, so I decided now was the perfect time!  The papers I used for the sleigh itself are from DCWV's Cranberry Christmas stack.  
What is a sleigh without a little decoration?  I added the wreath from the gift tag in the RW English Cottage kit to both sides of the sleigh using papers from DCWV's Christmas Plaid stack.  The bow is Cranberry Trendy Twine.
Now on to the treats!  I added some homemade peanut brittle into the sleigh itself using a topper from DCWV's DIY Gift Decor stack.  Then look at the picture below...there is a secret compartment below the sleigh that you can fill with more treats or a gift card like I did.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafy day!

DCWV Stackaholic Challenge for December

Hello all! It is that time of the month again...time for the DCWV Stackaholic Challenge! You know you want to join in, right? This month is extra special because it isn't strictly a card or layout sketch...you'll see what I mean at the end of this post ;)
I created a tag shaped ornament.  Some of my favorite childhood memories of Christmas are putting ornaments on our tree that were homemade and personalized, or even boughten ones that family members had given to each of us individually.  It made decorating the Christmas tree so special and personal, so that is why I decided to make an ornament!
The papers I used are DCWV's Cranberry Christmas, Christmas Plaid (available in Jo-Ann Fabrics stores) and the 6x6 Burlap stack.  The poinsettia and square doily files are from SVG Attic's JGW Poinsettia Passion set.  The twines at the top are Candy Cane and Holly Berry Trendy Twines, and the bling is from Oriental Trading.
Now, on to the best part...this month we have a mood board to create from!  It is so wonderful to be able to create with the feeling that one gets from inspirational pictures, colors, and patterns, isn't it?
So get those DCWV papers out and get creating!  Let your imagination run wild.  I can't wait to see what you all create!  You have until the end of the month to participate!  Stop by the DCWV blog for more details.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
