Let It Snow Card

This week is Let It Snow at SweetSassyDiva and can we say I am snowed under with last minute gifts to buy, cards to send, and a house to clean. LOL So today is going to be sweet, simple, and quick for that last minute holiday rush we all find ourselves in.  This is a little gift card you can make in just a few minutes for those special gifts you hopefully have already bought. Ha ha

The card is 3x3 with a   1 1/4 "  strip of CTMH Wonderland paper. The backside of the paper is this beautiful blue square. I cut the snowflake at 3/4" from the CTMH Art Philosophy cart and then stamped it with CTMH Crystal Blue and the  December 25th  stamp set. Joy is stamped in CTMH Cocoa from the  Holiday Wishes stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed my quick little card and try one for yourself today. If you don't have a CTMH consultant already I'd love to take care of you. You can shop by clicking on the links in my description or feel free to email me with any questions.

Hope you're holidays are wonderful

CTMH Gift Tags

How are you all doing getting ready for Christmas? Have you got all your gifts bought yet? How about wrapped?  I actually have all of mine bought but have a few left to wrap. Today I'm sharing some great gift tags. This was totally not my idea but I lifted it from another CTMH consultant. It's just too great not to share.

These are all made from fabulous CTMH Decor Journaling Spots. You receive 12 pockets with a coordinating tag.  When you add some stamps you end up with some fabulous gift tags and gift card holders. The pockets are the perfect size to slip a gift card into. Isn't that fabulous?!
I used cuts and stamps from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge Collection and stamps from the Holiday Wishes set.

Do Not Open Until December 25th

Day 5 of another quick easy gift card. Are you enjoying them? Today I actually have a card and a tag so you can see how easily it is to adapt a design to anything you need.

The card is 3X3 and I cut the tag from the CTMH Art Philosophy cart. Inked around the edges of everything with some cocoa ink for a bit of country look. I attached the strip of plaid with a brad. Quick, simple, but oh so cute!

Now I took  the same design but cut a 2 1/2 X 3 " tag from the Believe paper pack and stamped on a piece of white cardstock. This time I added some bling to the plaid strip and ribbon cut the ends. Now you have quick little tags for all your gifts. You could also stamp the image again in red and then cut out the until rectangle and glue it on top for some added contrast. Either way they're the adorable finishing touch to any gift.

I hope you're enjoying all the quick little cards I've been sharing and try them for yourself.

Joy Card

Day 3 of my quick easy cards. Be sure to check out the rest if you missed them.

I love how the glitter just jazzed this bulb up. It's super simple and not that messy either. I ran the top layer through my xyron and then sprinkled with glitter. If you press down over the top it grabs all the glitter and it won't be rubbing off. Neat trick huh?
I added a dew drop for an added bling to the ribbon.

Tis the Season card

Day 2 of my quick easy cards. If you missed yesterday be sure to check it out and come back the rest of the week for more quick easy cards.
The paper really makes these cards so cute without a lot of work. I got them all from the single sheets at Hobby Lobby. I ran the tree through my cuttlebug and then highlighted the embossing with stickles. Gotta have some bling at Christmas time especially.

Christmas Ticket card

I thought I'd share some Christmas cards.  If you haven't already sent your cards these are all quick, easy, but lovely cards to send to your loved ones. I'll be sharing one each day for the rest of the week so be sure to come back and check them out.

I fell in love with this ticket stamp from Unity stamps and had to try it out. The poinsettias made a perfect finishing touch to the card.

See I told you they were quick and simple but oohhh so cute!

You Warm My Heart

This time of year you find yourself needing quick little gifts so I thought I'd share a few I made using my new Art Philosophy cart and stamps
 I made the  french fry boxes so that a few flavored tea bags would just fit. Who doesn't love a cup of hot tea this time of year. I know I do.
 I stamped the cup and sentiments on white paper and then cut them out. Pop dot them for some added dimension and pizazz.
 After assembling the boxes I tucked them in some cellophane gift bags and tied a pretty bow to match. Now how simple was that? Quick inexpensive gifts you can make for any last minute presents.
