The Best Gift of All--CPS #148

Wow!  I just figured out how to update my blog with the new blogger editor so I can post multiple photos with text in between!  Amazing the things we "old dogs" can learn!  LOL!    So the sketch above is from Card Positioning Systems, sketch #148.  My goal this week is to try to use up all of a certain paper pack that I ordered for a workshop that all my customers cancelled on!  Oh, well--I'll get even with them!  I will have all my Christmas cards for 2010 done before Valentine's Day, and they won't have made any!  Ha, ha!  The card below is now my THIRD design using this same sketch.

The front reads, "This season the best gift of all..." and inside:  "is your friendship."  All supplies are from Close To My Heart:  tulip and creme brulee ink and cardstock, Jingle paper, Festive Thoughts and Somethin' Special stamp sets.  I love the little present stamps--they come in three pieces so you can mix and match colors.  And our fabulous My Acrylix® clear stamps make stamping in the exact right spot a cinch!  Stand by for more cards to come!  I think I'm on a roll here!

Peace on Earth--CPS Sketch 148

Here's a whole new look using the SAME paper pack as yesterday's card! And you can see that I did it several different ways to use up all my scraps. How OCD is that?!!! LOL! All products are CTMH: Juniper ink and cardstock, Jingle paper, Snow Flurries and Shining Star stamp sets. The Shining Star stamp set is one of my favorites!

Card Positioning Systems Sketch 148

This is my first ever post to the Card Positioning Systems gallery! I was inspired, not by the sketch or any altruistic reasons, but because I do NOT like this paper and I wanted to use it all up! LOL! It is called Jingle, by Close To My Heart, and it has two shades of green that really clash in my opinion. So I used the dimensional element to cover one of the two greens, and now I really like my card! All products used are Close To My Heart: tulip ink, olive marker, olive cardstock, and gold emossing powder. Paper is Jingle. Stamp set is Holiday Trinkets. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!
