Ornament Christmas Card

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!  I hope you all are enjoying your day with your family and thanking God for all of your blessings.

If you are taking time to stamp or craft today I wanted to show you this cute little card.  It was “CASE-D” (Copy And Steal Everything) directly from The Angel Company’s Fall Magalogue, page 35.  I didn’t have the exact cardstock and I changed the sentiment on the front.  I wanted to show an example of how you can use what you have to remake a project that you see in a catalog or magazine or blog.  Hopefully you’re copying from my blog. 🙂

Always remember that if you need a current catalog or magalog from The Angel Company I will send it to you free.  Just email me your phone number and I will contact you for your shipping information… kandy@kandyskeepsakes.com

Reindeer Food

The kids are so excited to sprinkle their reindeer food on the lawn tonight.  I made them for my kids and Anne gave them to each of her classmates at their Christmas party last Thursday.

I mixed oatmeal and sliver glitter and poured it in a plastic test tube.  I made the “simple and easy” tag using the stamp set “Reindeer Food” from The Angel Company and tied it around the tube with red ribbon.  I used red Stickles to make Rudolph’s nose shine.

If you haven’t already, you can quickly make this project.  Put the reindeer food in a plastic baggy if you don’t have access to a tube.

Merry Christmas!!!

Guest Artist… Jennifer Edwards

Here is another project from guest artist, Jennifer Edwards.   It is a sweet and simple card, easy to make.  There is minimal coloring needed for these snowmen and women.  The ribbon and the touch of blue Stickles is just enough to make it “POP”.  The inside message reads, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord”.

Card Recipe (All items from The Angel Company):

Stamps: Snowman Nativity

Cardstock: Premium White and Monochromatic Blues

Accessories: Ribbon, Colored Pencils, Blue Stickles

Reindeer Christmas Card

My theme this Christmas season, as always, has been “simple and easy” and here is another one…

I designed this Christmas card for my grandmother’s cards this year.  Every year I make cards for her to mail to family and friends.  She has recently moved to Kentucky and this is my first year of not going to her house for the holiday.  She’s only been moved a couple of weeks, but I miss her so much. 

I stamped the reindeer and “Merry Christmas” using Burnt Umber on vanilla cardstock.  Then before I mounted it to the brown cardstock I distressed the edges, dragged them in Moulin Rouge and curled up 2 opposite corners.  I used red Stickles to make his nose shine.

I used the following products from The Angel Company

Stamp Sets:  Reindeer Food, Vintage Santa

Cardstock:  Vanilla, Scarlet and Monochromatic Browns

Ink:  Burnt Umber and Moulin Rouge Palette Ink

Accessories:  Red Stickles and Pop Dots

Jennifer Edwards Treat Bag

 

I am featuring a guest artist today.  She is my dear friend, Jennifer Edwards.  This was my Christmas treat from her and with her permission I am sharing it with all of you.  She simply stamped this cute treat bag with The Angel Company’s Snowman Natavity Stamp Set using Starry Night Palette ink, punched 2 holes near the top and added a ribbon.  Then she filled them with Oreo Bon Bons and gave as Christmas treats.  The Oreo Bon Bons she makes are so delicious.  I think I’ll make some tonight.  Check my Facebook page for the recipe.

Peace Christmas Card

 

 

It has been such a long time since I posted.  The last 3 months of my life has been so hectic.  But a new year is coming and I am promising to make this next year a little less chaotic and a whole lot more peaceful.  Why wait for January 1st?  There is no better time to start then the present.  So to kick off this “new” outlook I wanted to showcase the “Peace” Christmas card I created.  It is very simple and easy to make.  The little added areas of crystal Stickles gives it all the pizazz it needs. 

Card Recipe (All products from The Angel Company):

Stamps: Peace

Cardstock: Premium White, Reece SWIC, Monochromatic Browns, DCWV Neutral Stack
