I know this die cut is old but its new to me. Every time I went to purchase this either online or in store it was always sold out. I finally purchased this in October at a local Stamp Convention. Yeah! I love it. Can be used for Halloween also.

I used metallic texture card stock for each lamppost. I used up some older Basic Grey Papers for the background. Another simple and fairly quick card. Waiting for the stickles (on the berries)to dry  took the longest.


Gingerbread Christmas

Here is another one of my many Christmas cards I made this year. This was a simple and quick die cut card using T!m Holtz's Sizzix Gingerbread and holly from his Holiday Lampost die cut. I inked edges to give the cookie further texture. I added black and red self adhesive pearls for eyes and buttons. I thought the red looked like cinnamon candies.

 I hope this quick and easy card gives you inspiration to make last minute tags or cards.

Christmas Tin Pins from Darcie's

 I first came across these at a local convention in October. ADORABLE! I knew I had to have them, every single one of them. They were screaming "buy me and create cute and unique things" They each measure 1" and are round flat back pin/ buttons that are added to a coordinating stamped image to create amazingly adorable finished projects. 

I love each and every one of them. I used copics to color that coordinated beautifully with the colors on the pins. I used hot glue gun to attach pin and embellishments to card front.
My favorite Christmas card color combination is red, aqua, and olive. I use this combination almost every yr. and I used it again this yr. as you can see above.
