The inspiration for some of these cards comes from the very talented Close To My Heart Consultants who so willingly share their artwork on blogs and various artboards. Vicki Wizniuk, Melinda Everitt, Deneen Treble, Aaron Brown, Amy Moore, Carol Barnard, Christine Adams, Antoinette Herrin, Helen Onulak, Carol Lebuski, Tresa Black - just to name a few - are a constant source of inspiration and keep feeding my paper craft addiction.
I posted the Aspen card a while back, but am reposting along side the three from other paper packs. This snowman is the happiest little guy and is from Share The Magic stamp set. The paper packs are Aspen, Mistletoe, Evensong, and Jingle.
These four were made using the All Decked Out stamp set, and inspired by a Vicki Wizniuk card.
This set was made using the Festive Frills stamp set (one of my all time favorites). These are all glittery although you can't really tell that in the photos.
This one is a totally scraplifted card from Margo Wildman, using Cricut die cuts. I loved this card the moment I saw it and knew I had to make it. It translated to 3 of the papers, but I decided to go with snowflakes on the Aspen papers.
I went a little crazy with border punches on these,
but am very happy with the effect on all the paper packs.
The ribbon is laced through the border punch on this one. The trees are from the December Word Puzzle stamp set.
And my personal favorite - this one is an old Fiskars border punch that barely stays together because I've used it so much over the years. The gift box stamp is from the St. Nick stamp set. I used PrismaColor wax based pencils to color the stamp.
