Blessings of the season

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
This is the One who we celebrate this season. His coming changed the world and its people forever. A simple faith in the Son of God as your personal Savior can change you and your world. He wants to come into your life and have an ongoing relationship with you so that you can have the life abundant and life eternal with Him. Celebrate the Prince of Peace!

Since I seem to have taken almost half a year off from blogging, it really is time to catch up once again. This is a busy time of year but you can always bookmark this issue and then come back after all the festivities have past, relax with a cuppa and sort through some card ideas.

This stamp set is from Close to My Heart, Typed Note and includes the typewriter and some messages. The punch at the edge is from stampin up but think it is retired.

This cute bear is made using die cuts and punches. It can be found on Pinterest.

 This simple card has an embossed background using Mosaic Madness embossing folder from Stampin Up and two different spellbinder dies. The one with the white paper was cut partially to give it a tag like effect.
The feathers on this card are from a feather stamp set from Close to My Heart and I just cut them out. The burlap is from a paper pad and the edging is an edge punch from Martha Stewart.

Once again I used the We Are Memory Keepers Envelope Punch and made this card using double sided paper. The medalion on the front is made with a Martha Stewart punch as is the edging at the bottom.

 The die cut here is from SU's Butterfly Basics set. Don't know the embossing folder used. I think the designer paper is also SU. I made this at a friend's house so don't know the sources.

This is another embossed card but it had been stamped on first. The hearts are sparkly paper die cuts.
This was a fun way to use die cuts. Just split one die cut into two and add embellishments. The heart was a die cut also and then put through an embossing folder.

 The embossing folder used for this card is Elegant Lines from SU. Some designer paper was glued down first onto the card base. The Blossom punch was used on the right side to allow the paper to show through. Additional die cuts/punches were used to decorate.
A variety of punches were used to make the flower and then die cut hearts. The edge is made with a Martha Stewart punch.

Masking is the technique used here. Mask off a strip in the middle of the card and sponge on desired inks. Remove masking, ink up stamp and stamp images. 

This cute bird was made using SU's Bird punch. Just punch out in various color card stocks.

This card was made using SU's Butterfly Basics stamp set. The die cut is one that goes with that stamp set.

Stay tuned for Part 2
