Christmas Past

2017-11-25 10.50.54 (1)
 I’ve been a Pinterest junkie for many years and have pinned hundreds of cards to copy!  Today I’d like to share some of my all-time favorite CopyCat Christmas cards from years past!  My first card is a natural beauty; just look at the glow in the center!!  I found THIS card on Pinterest a couple years ago, and ordered the Tim Holtz Great Outdoors set just so I could make it!  And believe me, I have more cards using this set in my Pinterest board to copy!

Karen Dunbrook is one of my favorite card artists and I’ve gotten to know her a little through social media lately, but when I found this card of hers a few years ago on Pinterest, I immediately saved it to copy!  I changed it up a little with the addition of die-cut pine needles but I wish I could claim this simple yet striking beauty as my own design!

You all know that I’m a huge fan of Stampendous stamps and this is one of the first ones I purchased after seeing THIS card on Pinterest!  I’ve made a number of cards using Christmas Cottage but this is one of my favorites!  Funny to see my old photography!

How adorable is this?!  This is Unity Stamp’s Owl Warm-hearted set and I just love how sweet these two are, perched on their little branch!  I don’t often use patterned paper but I like it here!

Is it any wonder that I love pointsettia stamps?!  I first discovered Stampendous’ Jumbo Pointsettia via Pinterest with THIS image which grabbed me by the throat!!  It’s a long-retired stamp but I hunted it down a number of years ago and found it on ebay.  I cannot stop making cards with it!!

Distress oxide inks are game-changers for me!  I’ve always loved distress inks and the cool effects you get with them, but the oxides velvety finish make my artist heart sing!  I used Stampin Up’s retired Snowflakes set on this card and a sentiment from Penny Black’s Believe set.  Gold glitter card stock is also a favorite!

Speaking of gold glitter stock, isn’t this ornate die-cut frame gorgeous?!  I bought it at AC Moore and just love it, paired here with Tim Holtz’ Holiday Greens Mini Thinlets, some distress ink, another sentiment from that Penny Black Believe set and a few golden Nuvo Drops!

This sweet image is one I found on Pinterest a couple years ago, resized it to A2 size and printed it out on my computer!  I had recently gotten my first Prismacolor pencils and just loved coloring these adorable little mice!

My final favorite CopyCatCard from Christmas’s past is this one featuring the AMAZING Snowy Postcard stamp by, of course, Stampendous!!  I’ve always been drawn to vintage images that are rendered in a realistic manner and Pinterest is overflowing with unbelievable cards made with this stamp!  Here’s one that I’ve saved to my board, and here’s another.
