Christmas Crunch cards!

Hi friends!

What do you call 4 caroling mice in the snow?


They're called COLD!


How's your Monday going?

Only 4 more sleeps until Santa!

My cards today are last minute ideas for Christmas Crunch Cards!

If you're just getting started or need extras or cards for neighbors,

make them simple, make them quick! 

 I used the adorable Waffle Flower Crafts Fa-La-La combo 

stamps and dies to create these snowy and festive cards.

First, using Ranger Ink distress oxide inks in a variety of blues,

I blended a quick background.

Using white acrylic paint, I used a new toothbrush (dollar tree!)

and flicked the paint on in a random splatters.

With some Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam, I popped up the images

and just love the look to these. 

They would look great with different colored backgrounds!

I'm super excited this year - 

being done with shopping, wrapping, and decor so early.

It's nice to sit in the still of the night watching 

the twinkling colorful christmas lights!

And ... 

that's about the only time my house is actually ever quiet :)

I have another {different} set of cards to show you tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by!

Big hugs, bigger blessings :)

  2. Lovely cards, Kelly. Great backgrounds and leaving the images uncoloured is very effective. Just a few presents to wrap and a bit of baking to do and then I'm done for Christmas. xx

  3. Love both cards Kelly. Very cute images and gorgeous backgrounds. We are going to have a quiet Christmas, just the 2 of us. Lovely!! Big hugs and blessings, Carol S.xxxx

  6. What a great idea, Kelly. Love those uncoloured images and the gorgeous backgrounds.
    I only have to finish off wrapping the presents and then I'm all done. Just cannot stop creating Christmas cards. Well, they are for next year. Merry Christmas.
