CHRISTMAS IDEAS FROM DONNA

OMG … talk about dragging my feet, Christmas will be here in just 3 more days and thankfully, I am all ready.  I just need to post these final cards and then I can breathe and get ready for my classes in the New Year!  🙂  Here are my ideas using our latest products and a few old templates I used with them!

 

Donna’s Through the Woods. I used LI Template #L9833, new Cut-Outs, Card Expressions, and new Cardstock.  Bucky the deer was available only for a short time with Kerry’s Emboss-A-Lot Series.  I hope some of you were able to get him.  He’s so cute.  I added my faux stitching, my 3 ink dots, and Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the edges.

 

Donna’s Merry Christmas Gnome. L.I. Template #L9826, “Chester” was also a template only available for a short time through Kerry’s Emboss-A-Lot Series.  Isn’t he cute?  Gnomes seem to be very popular now so I was happy to see these new Cut-Outs and yep … Chester is one of them!  Again, I used Cut-Outs, Card Expressions, and Cardstock for this card along with my usual faux stitching, 3 ink dots, and LI button.  I originally mounted my images on a Coaster to be used as a gift tag but, as you see, it can also be mounted on an A2 Card.  There’s gnome one quite like Chester!

 

Donna’s Gingerbread Guy!  L.I. Template #L927.  Okay, okay … who doesn’t like gingerbread?  This little guy was first released several years ago in two template sizes … an “L” version and an “S.”  Both have been long retired so how fun to include them in these new Cut-Outs.  He looks good enough to eat, doesn’t he?  🙂  I used the new Cut-Outs, new Cardstock, Card Expressions, my faux stitching and Christmas Stickles.

 

Donna’s Reindeer. New Cut-Outs, Cardstock, LI button, Christmas Stickles, and Colored Impressions’ Software.

 

Donna’s Gnome Sleigh.  I just couldn’t get enough of Chester so I made yet another card using the new Cut-Outs.  I also used LI Template #L9522 for the Sleigh, new Cardstock, Card Expressions, LI Button, my faux stitching and ink dots, and Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  Chester makes a pretty good Santa, don’t you think?  🙂

 

Donna’s Gingerbread Guy 2.  Last, but certainly not least, I just had to use the Gingerbread Guy again.  Maybe I’m just hungry, I don’t know, but here he is in a cute layout using LI Template #L9433, new Cut-Outs, Card Expressions, LI Buttons, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, and Christmas Stickles.  Whew!

 

Okay, that’s it from me.  I am wishing you the very best Christmas and a very Happy New Year!  See you next year and until then … Happy Embossing!  🙂 Donna
