Flaky Cards!

Hi all!

It's Christmas crunch time!  I have reached the point where things I wanted to do for Christmas start falling off my list as I realize I do NOT have enough time to do it all if I also want to sleep between now and Christmas day!  We did manage to get the tree up but only 1 big tree and Pezza's little mini tree "forest".  Less to take down and put away later right?  With hubby being in fire school 2 nights a week plus Saturdays AND duty crew AND working the fire dept.'s Christmas tree lot plus a Trevor and Jess's baby on the way, Hollyn's gymnastics and girl scouts, my PTO and other school related duties and my constant state of exhaustion for no reason whatsoever some things had to give.  However, I HAVE enjoyed making some Christmas cards though and have another set for y'all today.

Did y'all see the tutorial on stamping with Twinks & Silks HERE?  It's a great way to create stunning pieces quickly and easily.

I used the same stamps & techniques for these 2 sets of cards as I did for the tags in the tutorial.

Here are some close ups.

The subtle shimmer is gorgeous

Pairing Twinks & Silks with your red rubber stamps is a perfect match!  I will have another tutorial up for you tomorrow for more gift tags.  This one will feature my most favorite of the shimmery ColourArte products - Primary Elements Artist pigments.

I am entering the following challenges:
