Christmas cards and gifts I have made this year

Merry Christmas and happy holidays! I was inspired this year to make different Christmas cards to abunch of people this year. There are a few I wanted to make but time prevented. I have not received a single homemade card, but I have received some very beautiful cards that I have hung on our door. I even made a few cards for my husbands paper route. I used mainly Close to MyHeart supplies with the exception of the sushi, penguin, llama, and winter scene stamps. I got those except for winter scene at lawn fawn.com. The winter scene stamp was brought long ago at hobby lobby. I must say I was pleased when I got my lawn fawn order. There stamps are cute without being too cutesy. If you like that style, wait until new CTMH stamps are unveiled in January. I used my twin touch shinhanmarkers for all coloring ands usedliquidglasson almost every card as well. The only papers I used were lawn fawn 6x6pack andctmh white daisy card stock. The cards and envelopes are ctmhwhitedaisy. I used some cricut embossingfolderstoo. If you want any of the card recipes let me know. Thank you for looking!

DIY sponger daubers

Greetings crafty friends! Today I am sharing with you a video I made to show how to make your own sponge daubers.

Here's a picture of a card I stamped the typewriter in black and then used my diy sponge dauber to put some CTMH Desert Sand ink inside the stamped image to give it both color and texture. You can see the difference because I only used the sponge dauber with ink on the left side of the typewriter image. Unfortunately, this stamp set is now retired, but I do have an extra one for purchase from me for $5 plus shipping. Please contact me, if you are interested. 
Here's the finished card! I think the sponging gives a vintages look to the card.

Thank you for stopping by!

For Family CTMH stamp set and a monkey wobble card

Greetings crafty friends!  It has been a long time since I have been able to update my blog, but I have resolved the issues and I am back and ready to show you some fun projects I have been working on.  I used this new stamp set by CTMH called For Family. Here's a picture of this versatile stamp set!
There is so much you can do with this stamp set! I made a video of how I made a fun Monkey wobble birthday card. I thought the Happy Birthday stamp was from this stamp set. I just realized it was from the September promotion stamp set. I only used the brush stroke from this stamp set. Here is the video of my colorful card!
If you are viewing my blog post thru your email, you'll need to go to  my blog to see the video. You can purchase this great stamp set on my website here. You can purchase the adhesive springs also from my CTMH website along with all those great CTMH Inks! The link to the CTMH inks is here.  Please let me know if there is anything I can assist you with. Thank you for stopping by!!! Have a great day!
