Hello My Friends! Welcome to my blog today!!! Are you getting into the Christmas Spirit? Honestly, I can not believe HOW FAST this year is going!!! Can you? I found out last week, we are celebrating our family Christmas with my husband's side on Thanksgiving. That really cuts my shopping time even shorter!!!

See this Twist Card??? Creative Cuts and More totally simplifies this by doing ALL of the cutting and the scoring! I love it! I can go to my box and grab the card and CREATE!!! I love using these die cuts - especially when I am in a time crunch!!!

Now these stamps.... Let me tell you about these! These fabulous stamps are from DRS Designs. These are made of a fine rubber and come All DRS Designs Rubber Stamps are available in the following styles:

MOUNTED - Rubber trimmed on cushion. adhered to a hardwood mount with indexing on top.
UNMOUNTED - Rubber only, rough cut.  No cushion or mount is included.
CLING MOUNT - Rubber trimmed on cling cushion. No mount is included.

Here are the stamps that I used on the A2 Twist Card: Girl Swirly Holly, Woven Plaid, Find Peace, Ornaments Galore, Joy to the World
Cardstock: Riding hood Red, Chocolate Chip, White
Accessories: Espresso Ribbon, Paper Snips,, Chocolate Viva Pearl Pen
Copics: R29, R24, R22, G28, G24, G21

On my second card, I used theTechnique Junkie Newsletter and the technique Cuttlebug Highlights with Encore Gold Ink. I embossed the Three Wisemen Ornament stamp with gold embossing powder on gold card stock. I used Denim Creative Inspiration Paints to paint the blue ribbon and cut it out using my Paper Snips. The background Spellbinders is 2010 Heirloom Ornament. I stamped the  Joy to the World in Navy ink and placed it on an angle after sponging the edges... The gold accents are the Viva Pearl Pen in gold. :)

Hi Chrissi,
Your cards are beautiful. Unhappily it doesn't fit to our current challenge at Christmas Inspiration. Die cuts was the challenge 35 and this is finished. The current challenge is BOWS. You have plenty time to join us!


oK. that's fine. There is no instruction on our blog that it should be a real bow. So it will count!
