Happy Mail and the Last bunch of Christmas Cards

This first card I've had for some time now and never got around to editing the photo I shot of it, it came to me all the way across the big pond from Penny. The sentiment reads " A friend is someone who makes it easy" the ladies face collage is up on pop dots and stamped on transparency sheet, not sure what to tell you on how it was done, but that link will take you to Penny's blog... this has the most incredible shimmer but, i didn't catch that with the camera.
I did this one yesterday ( with no glasses on ) haha, tried coloring the day before but, ended up tossing everything i tried to color. this one was for DH. the Amore heart print is from Hero Arts and stamped with Memories Chestnut ink on SU River Rock CS. the little hearts in it are colored with an Marker. the darker mat cs is Mellow Moss. the With Love sentiment is stamped with Baroque Burgundy on the Mellow Moss and punched with an Whale of a Punch tag, the fancy Flexible phrase Merry Christmas is stamped on the back side of an piece of bazzill and then punched with an Martha Stewart tag. (there is an pop dot on it too) The Printed Paper is i think a scrap of K&Co ( but could possibly be Anna Griffin?) Ive had this a long time don't really remember anymore. The ribbon is May Arts and the hat pin is something a local lady makes and has an lss here sell for her. This card is 5X7 in real life.
This is another 5 X7 sized card, I had colored all the images here and below some time ago and made this next 4 cards the night before we left for the hospital. ( good way to burn off nervous energy.) I didn't photograph them because all of them have stickles and Ive ruined quite a few cards having them fall over while the glitter glue is still wet. The Peace ( Penny Black) is stamped on Very Vanilla with Olive Archival ink (Ranger) and up on pop-dots. the Basic Grey (holly pp) has red stickles on the berries of the pp. the corners have some hemp cord from walmart on them and the red satin ribbon is unknown. The So Saffron cardstock is matted with a green Basic Grey Scrap. ( same scraps as some of the other Christmas cards i have posted previously)
This one the only things really different about it is it's an 6 inch square (card base is textured Bazzill) the red dot pp is from Daisy D's and the red texture pp is from Provo Craft, the ribbon is offray and i trimmed the penny black image with postage scissors, ( which didn't look good) so then went around the edges of the image with micro tip scissors and matched it up a little better.
This one is a-2 in size, the Lockhart angel is colored with Prisma Pencils, and punched with an Marvy Lever scalloped oval. the Celebrate is from the Su set fancy flexible phrases, there is some chalk inking on the edges of the scallops and glitter glue on her wings, the blue sparkle cardstock is Bazzill, the ribbon i picked up by the yard at wal-mart years ago. ( its reversible and if i had to guess id say Wrights) just because our walmart carries mainly that brand in there fabric dept. I think that pale blue stickles may be one of the newer colors.
Same thing only in a redish rosy color. don't remember who makes that pp. but i did add some red stickles to it. that sheer ribbon is actually a peachy pink color and i bought it by the yard years ago at Joann's Fabrics. that's about it. today's big thing will be a trip to an local (fancy scmancy) home store that usually has really cool ornaments with Alice.
Happy Christmas Eve!
