Last Minute Christmas Madness!

I'm a procrastinator for sure. This week I have been working like crazy to get everything done (and I'm not finished yet...) on time. Some of the projects I have been working on are Christmas cards and ornaments for my co-workers. I finished in the nick of time (last night) and gave them out today. I think they liked them. :)

My first card is made with Unity's Trinity Trio stamp. I love this stamp- I don't think I will ever get tired of it. I stamped it onto white card stock twice and colored the trees with Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and tempting turquoise (I used my ink pad and blender pen to lighten it up a bit since Soft Sky was too light and Tempting Turquoise was too dark...) Then the trees were cut out and popped up onto the original image. Silver Stickles decorate the large tree because for a girly Christmas Card like this- you gotta have some sparkle!

Stamps: Unity Trinity Trio
Paper: Kraft, Regal Rose, PTI White, My Minds Eye Be Merry Trim the Tree DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Nestabilities, Regal Rose Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Stickles, Dimensionals
My next card was made special for my co-worker that loves Polar Bears. The image is from Inkadinkadoo Christmas Characters set. The bears are popped up for dimension and I added snow with white craft ink as well as with my white gel pen. I touched up the main image with Stickles in Xmas Red and Frosted Lace for a little extra oomph. (I have a hard time not adding some sort of glitter at Christmas time...I can't help it!)

Stamps: Inkadinkadoo: Christmas Characters
Paper: Kraft, Ski Slope DSP, Baja Breeze, Real Red
Ink: Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Real Red, White
Accessories: Nestabilities, Stickles, White Gel Pen, Red grosgrain ribbon

Here are the ornaments I made with the same Inkadinkadoo stamp set. I made a total of 12 ornaments and I am giving them as gifts to my co-workers and neighbors.

I have more projects to work on and if I get them done in time I will post those as well.
Merry Christmas!!
