a creative mind at work in the deep dark basement

Welcome to my 3rd week as the Guest Artist at Our Craft Lounge.  Are you ready for Christmas yet?  I've made quite a few Christmas cards this year which I usually give to the teacher's at school.  I'm really bad about making cards for the family and usually order mine from Shutterfly or somewhere like that.

This tree from the Sea-Sons Greetings set and it reminds me of that last tree on the tree farm that needs a home.  I colored the image with my copic markers and then mounted on some oval and scalloped oval nestabilities.  I added a sewing frame around the border of the card.

This sentiment from Merry Wishes is one of my favorites.  I speak to my oldest a lot about Believing.  

Card details:
Cardstock: Glamazon Green, Brown Leather Satchel, Kraft Like a Rockstar, Dare to be a Diva Red,Very Vanilla
Inks: Dish all the Dirt Brown, Dare to be a Diva Red, copics
Embellishments: Janome Sewing, Spellbinders Nestabilities, dimensionals

I created another card for the holidays and this is really one of my favorites that I created with the Our Craft Lounge stamps.

I love this layout and this color combination was just very striking to look at.  I again popped up the Poinsettia from the Happy Holly-days set after coloring it with several copics and dusting the edges with Rockstar Red and Cotton Candy Pink Sparkly Fluff

Since my next post for Our Craft Lounge won't be going up until after Christmas, I hope you that you and your family have a wonderful  safe holiday!
