Today is also the beginning of my 12 Days of Christmas Series…I’m working with some of the Pebbles Merry Merry line. I though this set was absolutely adorable! You can check out the video here:
Here are some close ups of the finished cards:
I LOOOVE this mason jar sticker! I always find that with the sticker/ephemera sets I find one or two things I want about 10 copies of.
Those iridescent snowflakes are definitely one of my favorite buys this year. That jar is jam packed and will last for quite a while.
A perfect sentiment to go with a snow-filled shaker window.
Over the river and through the woods…I’m still singing it in my head.
The snowy windows on the car are a great touch – I hope you can see that accent, a bunch of these stickers have a beautiful, sparkly glitter texture added to them.
Year after year I go back to these Mama Elephant sentiments – they are fantastic, I think they go with just about any type of card you want to make.
#3 is for sure my favorite. These elves – too cute for words.
Don’t be afraid to cut into ephemera to alter it if it’s not exactly what you need. I often cut into stamps to change sentiments and then totally forget about it with embellishments.
I’ve used my trusty SSS Envelope Liner die to cut out some additional papers from this pack to give those envelopes a little something special.
I love the home-spunny look of this card. I think it would be just perfect to add to a plate of cookies you’re giving to the neighbors.
Do you like gingerbread cookies? We make them every year and I always think they smell so good, but I don’t really like the taste of them.
Could there be a more perfect liner for that envelope?
Super simple, just really easy and to the point.
That little bough of flowers at the bottom of the globe is really cute. I kept looking for an extra piece of ephemera that I could pop up there but there were no small flowers, so I went with the holly sticker instead. I still might go back and add some nuvo drops, because I never know when to stop 🙂
That blue floral paper – so gorgeous!
Again that blue paper…ahh. I really love the mix of adding that pink chart too. It’s really different, but I think it works.
I’ve been doubling up jute for bows on a lot of my recent cards. I like the look of the separate strands.
How great is that unexpected pop of icy blue?
Thanks for stopping by today to check out my cards. xoxo, Sarah
