More "Before Thanksgiving" Christmas Cards...

                           The second of the Kraft and Cream Christmas cards is a warmly dressed bear waiting for the first snow to fall. Again, a good mix of kraft patterns and solid cream makes the card fun. And, it helps that the bear is cute!

Kraft And Cream Christmas....

                 I know, it's a little early for Christmas....not even Thanksgiving yet...but these Kraft and Cream Christmas cards want out of the box I've been keeping them in. The first one, a house on a cold Winter's night, with layered snow and a bright moon shining in the sky. Multiple patterns make the quiet color scheme interesting and general enough to be used for a non-Christmas occasion.

CARS Cards For October...

               The Chicago Area Rubber Stampers...C.A.R.S  Meeting was tonight....the theme for October for our cards is Little Houses or Little Buildings. I used some of my precious and little used Heidi Grace paper stash....I've had it for years and I suppose that I was saving it for something special.
                Using the small house patterned paper, I cut a background mat. From a larger house patterned paper that was glazed for a shine, I cut out the focal point houses and trees. For the word "Home"...I cut out the words from papers in the line and popped it with foam tape onto the card. The other mats were various beautiful and colorful papers in the line.  I love little things....this theme was perfect for me.
