Rockin around the Christmas Tree

Rockin Around Christmas Tree

I had a request for a guitar themed Christmas card. I found this SVG/digital stamp file. The original has the “as” partial on the guitar. Any way the way the guitar was in my cutting program there were way to many little pieces. So I asked my husband to separate guitar so I could just print it as one piece and add it to the cut out letters. Since all those letters were cut on the cricut I only made one card. If I can figure out how to do differently I make more!

SUPPLIES:
Digital Stamp/SVG file: Rockin Around the Christmas Tree from Scarlett Rose Designs
Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, Classic Yellowgreen, Bazzill Red)
Accents/Tools: Xyron X, EK Success 1/16 pop dots

Cute Cards from Journaling/Photo Cards

Christmas Tree with buttons

I had this image on my desk with buttons that I pulled for it earlier in the year but never made a card with it. I needed a card for a regular customer so I thought this image would work perfectly. This image is from a paper pack I bought a couple years ago. It has several journal cards with images on them. I ended up using several this year to make quick cards. I used Freshly Made Sketches #268 for my inspiration.

Plaid Snowman

Plaid Snowman w-stickles

My Christmas stash is gone so needed to make some Christmas cards. When I saw this FREE image I thought it would make super cute cards and I have a friend that would love it! And I think my step-MIL will like this one too! One of my regulars needed a card for a friend of his and he didn’t have anything in mind. So I thought this would work. I sent him a photo and his response was “can I have that one for my mom instead!” He said she loves Cardinals. So then I had to think of another card for his friend (see button Christmas tree). I added stickles to the snowflakes and snow mounds but the snowflake sparkle didn’t show up very well. I used this card from Taylored Expressions as my inspiration.

Joy

So Tuesday after my root canal I decided to clean up a pile on my craft room floor. In doing so I made this card. When trying to come up with ideals last month if I saw a sketch that sparked an ideal I set it aside with the product that I thought would work with it. This was one of those so I made it instead of putting the stuff away. The JOY was actually on a journaling card that came with the paper pack but the patterned paper it was on was not clicking for me. So I cut the JOY out and put it on solid paper and liked it a lot better. The sketch that inspired this card was Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #289.
I turned the sketch on it’s side.

A Christmas Owl and Panda

Owl Christmas.JPG

So this was for one of the granddaughters of the lady at work. She requested an owl as that is what the granddaughter is into. I had been wanting to make a stair step card with these owls from Daydream Designs (no longer in business). I didn’t get the card done I wanted to make but I did use the owl! I saw MOJOMonday #477 sketch and thought it would work but was trying to figure out what to put in the corner. They are small but there are candy canes on the owls belly. So I went looking through my Cricut cartridges and found some that were perfect on the Christmas Cheer cartridge.

Cowboy Snowman

Cowboy Snowman.JPG

So this is for the grandson of the lady at work. He is into cowboy/rodeo stuff so when I saw this FREE digital stamp from Free Dearie Dolls I knew it would be perfect. When I was in OK last month I found that the bigger town I take my aunt to for shopping has a scrapbook/craft store. I found this wonderful paper there and knew it would be perfect for this image. I did change the trim on him to blue as it was red in the original. She had snow drops on the original but when I added stickles it turned it grey because of the ink. So then I went with Flocking but it doesn’t stay as fluffy once on the glue. So I’m probably using the wrong glue. Bu if you look close there is flocked snow falling on and around him.
