Glitter was added to the star in the window and tree ornaments.
Flower Soft was attached to the white on the Santa hat with tacky glue.
To create a faux embossing I punched snowflakes for the bottom of the green base and attached with tacky glue.
The stitching was done with a sewing machine and the buttons are hand sewn to the card.

I am here to share a fun card using a QKR Stampede red rubber stamp.I have included a couple pictures of the same card because I noticed some glare.
I want you to see the dimension on the nest- yes the turkey is hiding out up in a tree- in a nest!
Wouldn't you be hiding if you were a turkey the day before Thanksgiving?
I colored this adorable tom turkey with Copic markers. Cut out and pop dotted for dimension.
I used this thick paper I had in my stash that actually looks like wood. Ran it through my Big Shot with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. Love that grain of the tree.
The leaves are from a punch and the tweet tweet is from a mini alphabet set I own.

The card with a few beads and glitter together and finish is a typical card in the traditional christmas colors.
On the hat I have applied ice crystals that can be seen but unfortunately not in the picture.

I made these cards using the Smiling Sun stamp from the store. It is bright and cheery and is sure to bring a smile on the face of the recipient. I guess it is kind of the gift that keeps on giving!
They are really basic and easy to put together. I think the whole lot only took about an hour to make and then an extra few hours for the glitter to try. It's a fun and easy way to bring a smile to the face of someone on your Christmas list this year!
Have a great day!!

The card base is a dark blue that I had in my stash, scored and folded into a gate fold card. I then ran some white card stock through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflakes embossing folder, trimmed and attached it to the 'gates' then attached the image only on the right side of the 'gate'
I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment with another QKR Stampede stamp with Memento Lady Bug Dew Drop Ink.

Wow the weather has changed considerably in our area but I still have pumpkins on my mind-How about you?
pumpkin vine stamp. There is gold leafing used to make this stamped image completely different. Can you see all the texture and shine?
The card is so much nicer in person.
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon-I also added some sequins to make this pumpkin shine.
All card stock from CTMH.
Well Thanksgiving is almost here but I couldn't resist one more pumpkin card- just loved this pumpkin stamp.
Do you make Thanksgiving cards? Why not pop into the gallery store and pick up a stamp or maybe even a digital image to finish up those cards.

On my blog I have had in the past week exactly the same image, just embossed. That was not bad, but not nearly as beautiful as when the picture is colored.
Unfortunately you can not see that the snowflakes are glittered and the white areas of coat and hat.

When I saw this stamp called Misplaced Broom Snowman, I had to get it because it portrays how I feel about snow and snowman come April when the snow is still going strong...

After I fussy cut the Winter Moose, I used foam tape to attach him to the snow flake. Then added self adhesive gems to give it a little 'glitter' There is satin ribbon added to use to hang the ornament.
I think he is adorable. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have enjoyed your time here and gotten a little inspiration. These kinds of ornaments could be made with so many of the wonderful QKR Stampede stamps. There are LOTS of great Christmas and winter images, in rubber stamps as well as digital, that would work great for this project. I hope you will stop by and see what you might like.

This image is called "Snowy Barn" by QKR Stampede. (digi image available here). Our barn is red, so I had to color this one red as well. I love old red barns!
I added lots of glitter to make the snow look like it was glistening.
Thank you for looking,
