Ho Ho Ho...

I'm sure you haven't noticed, but I sure did!  Today is my first post in over a week!  Wow!  That isn't like me.  I have been so busy this last week stamping with friends here in Kansas and I have completely neglected my blog!  So I am back today with a guest post for the lovely Nina and Waffleflower!  

This first card features her new die called Santa Tag Die.  My dad has played Santa every year for the past 30 or so years, so I love all things Santa.  When I saw this tag, it totally made me smile!  


I cut the pieces all to fit the belt and beard and then layered them together.  I used my corner round to finish off the edges.


I cut the buckle out of gold card stock for some shine and then added in the Ho Ho Ho from the set called A Homemade Christmas Set.


I made another CAS card using A Homemade Christmas set.


I stamped the Merry Christmas in Fresh Ink Provincial Gray and then matted it with some gold card stock.


I stamped this adorable little tree and then used red and gold ink to decorate the tree with the garland stamp.  I added in a tiny yellow heart to the top of the tree using the Tiny Star Die. I added in some Glossy Accents to finish it off!


So that is all I have for you today.  I hope you like my cards and are getting in the mode to make your own Christmas cards!  We have less than 95 days to go!  lol!  (I need all the days I can get!)

Hope you are having a great week!  Thanks for coming by today!

  7. You were missed! Love the Santa card. I made a Santa suit for my DH 40 years ago, and every year since he has loved putting it on first for our daughters and now for our grandchildren. Very special memories are with that suit:)

  8. I just love how you used the Santa Tag Die set Laurie.

  9. I hadn't noticed the tag until now - how sweet and fun it is to have Tag-Santa on this simple card!!
