Papers Art from Christmas Past

Here's some more Christmas past photos to share...this time some art from the past couple of years. Starting with above-
 A cool tag made with stamps, some clip art, felt snowflakes, and punched paper.
Another cool tage made with Stampington/Michelle Ward mini-clear stamps, a Hero Arts stamp, some Martha Stewart cardinals, a Hero Arts branch, punched corners and cool holiday paper . Think the edges should be distressed a bit and colored? I do.
Joyeux Noel...a non Christmas Eiffel Tower stamp wth holly and a wreath stamped and added, red speckled stamped directly onto a white card, some red background paper and some red German foil scrap trim, a stamped postage seal by Paper Artsy.
Postmodern Design stamped saying with a cool cooled Stampers Anonymous stamped image colored and cut out...the background which I love is a Hero Arts stamp in light brown stamped on lighter paper. punched diamond, embellished as shown. Think I added the key stamp in too.
Background is Hero Arts holly with the berries colored with red sparkles. Staying is also Hero Arts as are the 3 pointsettias along the felt trim at the bottom. All is distressed and bottom is trimmed.
Love this one a lot. Its an old ToyBox North Pole stamp and a great Santa in his sleigh stamp (maybe PSX???), holly stamped and the berries colored, words stamped along with the postage, deckle cut and put on a red card.
Another great card by Artistic Outpost stamps, colored with pastel pencils and then trimmed out on red paper with gold pen and some green paper trim.
Ho-Ho-Ho- al of these cards were fairly quick and simple to made.
Last 4 days of work until a weekend of busy holiday fun coming up...Friday we go to my family's in Massachusetts, we're home Saturday (new Dr. Who that night too) and then Sunday off to Maine-I think, to visit with Dave's family.  Then a down week-love the idea that next Monday I won't have to be up at 5 a..m. Its such a "merry" thought this morning. I don't think I'll get much done this week as far as baking or studio time...but we got to Costco and Trader Joe's yesterday- had a blast out with Dave...and so I feel at least like ALL my holiday shopping is done! That's a "merry" thought too.
Happy Day!
