I hope you had a Merry Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. I sure did.  I have been so busy cooking, baking, and crafting that I haven't posted in quite awhile.  I hope you understand.

I love to bake.  Here is something new I tried this year. I have had these 3 dimensional cookie cutters and I made cookies that stand up.  Here is a picture of some of them.  They were fun and delicious!

My younger brother wanted a hand made card. I made him this snowflake card.  It turned out all shimmery and icy looking.  I loved it.

My mother requested some handmade Thank You cards. I made these today. I will enter them in the Hero Arts monthly contest. I tried to capture some of the shimmery accents I added in this picture below.  It is hard to see, but I highlighted the flowers with a yellow Stardust pen my Sakura.

Here is what the whole card looks like.

I made a set of six, but here is three of them.  I couldn't fit the whole set into the picture.  I'm sure you get the idea.  I used craft card stock for the base of the card and some blue and yellow label shapes that I cut on my Silhouette.  I stamped the flower on ivory card stock with Sepia colored ink by Ranger and colored them with PrismaColor colored pencils.  The centers are popped up to add some dimension.  I chose the stamps and colors to really look natural and still pretty.  I don't always use yellow, but I like how it looks here. 

I hope all of you have a Happy New Year.  Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at what I have been making.

I saw your card on the silhouette machine flickr group and decided to come visit your blog. Those gingerbread cookies are adorable. I will have to look for those 3-D cookie cutters and make some next year. I love the reindeer.
