Inspired by Dina- Take 2!

Hi Blog Friends!
I have been busy all week...,
remember I told you last post that I was trying to figure out
WHAT to do for my Christmas Cards this year?????
After last weeks post, I was INSPIRED AGAIN!!!!
THANK YOU to the ladies at SCS! ;)
or just maybe, you'll think I've gone off the deep end here! LOL
I decided to do my Christmas Cards like the one from my last post,
ONLY I did them in different colors!
I mean, how many times have you been in the store
 & seen the many colored ornaments AND trees???????????
So, this week I've been working away to get these done.
& not much in detail has changed,
 so I'll refer you to my last post for specific details here:
(For the details I have changed, I'll make note at the end of this post.)
See if you can spot the changes throughout!
So, here we go......
How about a PINK tree?
How about a SILVER tree????
Of course, we have to have a TRADITIONAL tree.....
Next I thought, how about BRIGHT colored ornaments......
I had to re-make my blue card from last week, just changing up a few things.....
Next, I went for REGAL colored ornaments.....
 I wanted to do METALLIC colors & wasn't sure how it would come out,
but I have to say I am VERY PLEASE with it.
Lastly, I made a card with  PURPLE ornaments!
(Do you know of anyone who LOVES purple?) LOL
Here's the inside:
Each card has a matching/contrasting inside panel & matching ornament & sentiment.
So, what do you think?
I feel like I've been strolling through a Christmas Store! LOL
This was TOTALLY FUN!!!
 Now to write a personal note in each & address & stamp them, & get them in the mail!!!!  
*( ALL comments are VERY MUCH appreciated!)*
Supplies I used to change things up a bit:
* Martha Stewart- glitter
(I found the snowflakes/cards look nicer with a little sparkle!)
*Faber Castell Artist Pen- Silver
(I wanted a little more sparkle in some of the trees & on the ornaments.)
*Distress Marker- White
(I  wanted to add a little wispiness to some of the trees branches)
*Paper- SU, Paper Studio- BE BOLD, be bright, & Paper Reflections.
(I had purchased the Paper Studio Paper Stack awhile back anticipating Christmas Cards,
 LOVE that foil!!!)
*Rhinestones- Paper Studio & Kaiser.
(Some of those ornaments just screamed for a rhinestone! LOL)
*Inside Sentiment- SU Many Merry Messages.
* SU- Stamp-a-ma-jig
*Dick Blick- Masking Film
*Envelopes- WRMK Envelope Board
*Xyron Sticker Machine- used to add the strip of designer paper to the sides of the envelopes to coordinate with my cards.
* Just for reading all this, here's another idea you could use- Use Craft Sequins for tree lights..... ;)
*Multi-Medium Matte
I forgot to use this idea, but ran back to my desk to try it out!
Take a look at this:
;) I am HAPPY!!!!!


  1. Oh, Becky, I just LOVE these, and what a clever idea to use all sorts of colors. I think you are one smart "cookie" (or shall I say Christmas cookie - hehe!). I love all the colors you've used and really love the Take 2 with the sequins as the ornaments! Amazing! Just delighted at seeing these! Hugs, sweet friend!

  2. My goodness these are all beautiful! I especially love the orange/gold card - you are a blessing to all who know you Becky - have a great week!

  3. The cards are gorgeous, Becky! I've looked at them twice and still can't pick a favorite.

  4. Happy New Year! Your cards are gorgeous!

  5. I agree...gorgeous..
    Happy New Year!


Thank you for stopping by, I enjoy hearing from you & hope to see you again soon!
