Merry Christmas My Deers

My apologies for not posting the past couple of days. I have had Carpel Tunnel surgery on both hands, Nov. 17th and have needed to take it easy. I tend to overdue it sometimes, and then suffer the consequences. The casts are off but then stitches still in. Today, I will post 2 Christmas Cards.

This reindeer can be found here
These little guys were stamped, colored and cut out. Mounted with a pop dot on top of layered red & tan circles. Little crystals were added for some bling! The background is stamped with a round stam, then layered on a red card. Not sure if the sentiment is a stamp or a Justrite stamper you change the letters. Regardless, this is a very cute Christmas Greeting! Thanks Denise for this card!

This Nativity stamp displays it all for Christmas, Our Saviour! You don't have to color this image in, you can just ink it, add a bit of glitter glue for highlights. Fancy background paper, metallic gold and a silver bow complete the front. For the inside, my favorite verse to use for Christmas is Presents are nice...see the rest by clicking here To find the Nativity stamp, click here! Watch for another card tomorrow. By the way, THANK YOU Denise Clark for this card!

AJ and Inkyhive combo!

I must apologize for not posting before - on our visit of Oct. 8th, AJ was brayering and she did the sky and then stamped the trees, leaving the ground white for snow. . .she didn't care for the sky color and didn't like where she had placed the trees and she was going to toss it!!! I said, OH NO you don't, you can make a card with that. When we got together on the 22nd, I noticed she hadn't touched it, so I brought it home and played with it. I should have scanned it, before I worked/filled in on the bottum. Well, after, I stipple some green and brown in for the ground and filled in the tree trunks with brown, took a fine line black marker and made the extra ink spots, look like birds above the trees. I sent AJ a scan and this is what she said --
Ok, Ok you were right, it could be fixed and used for something!! I really like the added green, that does make a big difference. I could see a little something stamped in the bottom open area. And the birds, they look like real birds, not ooopses! See, One Stampers scrap is another Stampers treasure!! Now, too bad we didn't have a before and after...that would have made for great blogging!! Inkyhive Fixes for AJs messes!!

Please don't ever think it has to be thrown out. . .more times than not, it can be used.

You can get all the stamps from AJ.

Nature gives... 01-W-8026 for Font #1 01-W-8027 Font #2. The tree stamps came from the set Tree Splendor #GA0079, unmounted $12.50. Order on the website, in the comment box say you saw the stamps on the blog, Inkhive or AJ's and I will sell them the set for $9.00!

May you have a wonderful week-end! ~~Inkyhive
