More Holiday Cards!

As my Christmas Card Frenzy continues (come back on November 14th for DeNami Design's Christmas-themed November blog hop!), I made a few cards using stamps from some of my other favorite companies. I'm calling them my "Non-DeNami-National" cards. (Ba-dum-bum! Get it?) Anyway, I hope you enjoy seeing some of my other cards, but check back soon because I've been creating a ton of cards featuring DeNami Design stamps.

Sophie's DeLIGHT:

This card is inspired by my adorable, yet troublesome, cat, Sophie. While her sister, Izzy, is fairly laid back, Sophie has a knack for getting into trouble. Allow me to submit the following evidence...

Adorable: Sophie snuggling with her sister, Izzy. How cute is that fluffy belly?

Troublesome: This was once the sight that greeted me after returning from a week long vacation: ribbons and embellishments EVERYWHERE! I even caught Sophie in the picture with the evidence.

So now that you know some of the inspiration behind the design, check out the card:

I just adore the Fluffles the Cat stamps by Stampendous. They are so cute, and they almost always remind me of my Sophie. I also have a weakness for Christmas lights. I LOVE THEM! I pretty much HAVE to buy any stamp I see with them. Oh, and I bought the amazing Christmas Light String a couple months ago when on vacation in NY. Sadly, I didn't get the brand name, and I wish I did so I could not only get some more for myself but also tell you all about it. Sorry!

Supply list:

Stamps: Fluffles in Lights (Stampendous), Christmas Lights (from a Clear Acrylic set, brand unknown)

Paper: Green card and yellow glittery paper(DCWV), white (TPC)

Ink: Tuxedo Black, Cottage Ivy (Memento)

Other: Stickles, Copic Markers, Christmas Light String (unknown)

Snowy Peaceful Night:

I absolutely fell in love with this Snowy Night stamp from Hero Arts. Can't you see why? It's so peaceful and beautiful. Also, my new Swiss Cheese edger punch by EK Success was calling to me, and I'm really happy with the background texture it adds.

Supply List:

Stamps: Snowy Night (Hero Arts), Season's Greeting (Hero Arts for Archiver's)

Paper: Blue, White, Navy (TPC)

Ink: Paris Dusk (Memento), Starlite Silver (Brilliance) Other: Snowflakes (Starform), Silver Borders (Magenta Style), Ribbon (Celebrate It! for Michael's), Swiss Cheese Edger Punch (EK Success)

Vintage Santa:

This next card pushed me in a new direction, as I rarely work with vintage/antique images. I'm really excited about the finished product, though. This entire card was created using only two stamps, the Santa stamp by Magenta and the Pine corner stamp by Inkadinkadoo.

Supply List:

Stamps: Vintage Santa Quad (Magenta), Pine Corner (Deck the Halls set by Inkadinkadoo)
