Holiday Cards

Hey, my dear crafty friends, hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend. I had a great time with my family on Thanksgiving day, and got some crafty haul on Black Friday. For more holiday fun, we are making holiday cards this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Whether it is homemade cards, gift tags, or gift wrap there is a lot of making and giving this time of year!

I created two simple cards with stamped images as the sample for my children to make some holiday cards for their teachers.

My children want to make some fun and colorful holiday cards for their teacher so I created these two cards as the sample. The image on the first card was stamped with Tim Holtz Gingerbread House Sketch Stamp, and colored with Distressed Markers and Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue.

For my second card, I stamped the image with Memento black ink and Tim Holtz Type Chart stamp, and splattered the watercolor with Aquash Brush on the image. Both of these cards were distressed using Distress Inks and Art Daubers.

The sentiments were stamped using Tim Holtz Simple Saying Stamps and Memento Black ink.

These two cards are so fun and easy to make. And my children love them. 
I hope you like them and get a chance to make some holiday cards for your loved ones.
