Another "Re-cycled" Piece

This is another piece that Jim made using a re-cycled cabinet door.  Ignore the little bit at the bottom right corner that photo bombed the picture.  It looks like it is one of our shrubs.

Merry Christmas

This picture does not do justice to this card.  The paper behind the Nativity is gold and has a sheen to it.  The greeting is embossed with gold powder.  The die is from Crafter's Companion.  It is the first time I bought one of their dies and this one is beautiful.  Merry Christmas to all my family, friends, and blog readers.

Another Deer

A few years ago I took a class with Michele Zindorf.  She does amazing work using a brayer.  I used a sponge on this card because sponges work better for me.  Someone posted a card of Michele's on Pinterest and this is my version of the card.  This is the other deer that was on the Tim Holtz die.

Jumping Deer

This deer was cut using a Tim Holtz die.  It has two different deer.  I will post a card in a few days that uses the other deer.  Although this is a very simple card I think it turned out ok.  Maybe I will add a little bit of greenery around his neck.

Another Window Card

I have only seen snow in my part of town once the whole time I have lived here, a long time.  Because we don't get snow, I don't like to make snow type cards.  However, I really like the horse drawn sled.  I saw this one on Pinterest and decided to violate my no snow rule.

A Christmas Star

This really isn't a Christmas piece.  If you look at the background glass, you will see it is a swirl of green and blue.  This piece is another one that uses an old cabinet door for a frame.

Christmas Window

I love these cards made with the window die and brick embossing folder.  The idea is that you are outside looking into someone's Christmas tree.  I had some paper lace for probably 20 years.   I have been trying to use up all this old stuff that I have so that is what I used for a curtain.

Recycled Frame

It has been awhile since I posted some glass.  I asked Jim to bring down some of his projects so I could take a few pictures.  Not only did he bring some down, he took the pictures too.  The frame on this piece is a cabinet door with the center removed.

Try to ignore the background in any of the glass pictures.  Remember you are seeing right through it to whatever is in the background.

One Last Pine Branch

While I had her pinecone set, I made several cards.  This one will probably be the last one I will post.  It is a little blurry at the top because it was open slightly.  I really liked the way this one turned out, but I only had one piece of this paper.

December 1 Already

Where does the time go?  I can not believe it is December and another year is almost over.  Of course it doesn't help that we are having record heat.  The high today was 80+ depending on what station I listened too.  I didn't buy this set last year and sort of wish that I had.  But a good friend and stamping buddy loaned it to me to make a few cards.  I may need to borrow it again next year.
