More Holiday Fun

Happy Thanksgiving week. :)

I hope everyone is getting (at least some) rest and enjoying their holidays. I'm already give out and we haven't left our house yet. Yuck. I hope I'm not coming down with something. It's kind of felt like it today - I'm quite wiped out and have a low-grade fever. 'Tis the season!

My baking is done so I thought I'd share a couple of fun Christmas cards I've made. :)

I love this Neat & Tangled stamp set I picked up recently after pining over it for quite some time.

I die cut a piece of Lawn Fawn's Let's Bokeh paper with MFT Jumbo Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX. My card base is embossed with my MFT Polka Dot cover up plate. I gold embossed the N&T image and popped the whole banner up on foam tape. I tied a green sparkly Lawn Trimming around the card base and added a few sequins and enamel dots to finish it off.

I'm playing along with my inspiration challenges:

My next card was so fun. I did more playing around with a non-Christmas stamp and decorated a cute little critter.

I used Mama Elephant's Pandamonium and trimmed it out with scissors before standing him on the packages I die cut, stamped, and colored from MFT's Jingle All the Way stamp set. I stamped and trimmed the hat off a Santa from this same set. The base of my card is strips of paper from Lawn Fawn's Snow Day. Before layering gluing everything down, I sponged Distress Inks on my card base (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Picked Raspberry) and then spritzed with water.
