I made a quick card tonight for Day 9. I was going to do my “matchup” with it but had a different idea in mind, so the matchup #8 & #9 cards will come another day.
I pulled out my Winter Cheer Stamp TV kit and made this cute snowman card.
I attempted a flat bow for easy mailing but that didn’t work out so well. I will either have to pay extra or hand deliver this one!
I hope to be more crafty tomorrow night!

I was up late last night making this card. I attempted the faux laser cut technique…close but not quite successful. I should have had the die cuts touching so they look connected. It was not easy adhering them to an open circle and getting them to stay so I could glue them down!
I used tons of MFT products on this one. Three stamp sets and three die sets! The snowflakes were cut from PTI Sheer Shimmer cardstock, here’s a close up!
I’ll be back tonight with my matchup card!
Supplies~all MFT unless otherwise noted
Stamps: Sweater Stitch Background, Winter Wonderland (sentiment), Snowflake Flurry (little snowflakes near sentiment)
Ink: Grout Gray, Sno Cone, Cement Gray

I had this card done earlier but had to wait for our Monday night shows to finish so I could blog!
This is another quick sentiment card and a bit of non-traditional color with the purple. This is old Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather paper matched up with a newer stamps set of mine, Holly Jolly from Essentials by Ellen at Ellen Hutson. I used MFT Blueprints #24 for the card layout with one of the sketches provided for it.
Have a great night!

Tonight we have a matchup between Close to My Heart and Carta Bella. I chose an older stamp set called Holly Jolly Season and Merry & Bright paper. I used MFT Blueprints #1 to pull it together. If you don’t have any blueprints, I highly recommend them for card making! They make putting a card together a breeze when you’re short on time!
The color is a bit off…I was too lazy to go downstairs to take it in my light box. Since the papers were brightly colored, I used MFT Ripe Raspberry ink for the sentiment. I even stamped the inside to carry the sentiment through. So fun!
I wasn’t quite sure how to embellish the card, I almost left it plain but then decided to add some enamel dots from Teresa Collins Signature Essentials. I think they give off the right amount of “pop” against the papers.
That’s all for tonight!
