Please humor me because I suppose it is a little late to share these. But I wanted to show you what my family and I have been up to in the final days before Christmas! So, I have some things made by my boys (and one that included their friends) plus a final project from me.
I’ll start with a card made and designed by my oldest son. I had a few scraps lying about from projects you have already seen and he took them and ran. Well that, and he really really wanted to use the HO3 stamp because is a big math fan. So, I have another convert to Washi Tape (he says that it can be used on everything, lol) and I have to admit that I really love his design. I even gave him is own watermark…I think he earned it on this!
Not to be outdone, his younger brother got to work and chose the Best of Snow stamp to play with. I unleashed him with some retired markers and paper and he made these for teachers. You should have seen how proud he was to give it to his teacher!! The joy of a handmade card!
Early in the Christmas break, I heard the dreaded “we’re bored”!! Well, I needed some more tags and they had the time. I cut some rectangles from Whisper White and gave them the images from Color Me Christmas. The boys and two of their friends did all the coloring and added some sentiments too. Then they cut the shapes they wanted. These made me really happy too! Perfect for family presents!
Now finally, I created this little bag to hold a gift card. I love that you can stamp on these and then watercolor them! You can’t really see it but there is a tag to match. The leaves are from Simply Sketched (a hostess set) and the sentiment is from Endless Wishes. I threaded through some distressed Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and tied on the tag with the original string from the bag. This could really be made for any occasion to I wanted to show you how easy it is!
I hope that your Christmas was wonderful. As I mentioned last week both the Artisan and Freshly Made Sketches teams are taking a break this week. So instead I have a great post to share with you on Tuesday. I have something awesome to show you that I have been not so patiently waiting to be completed for about 2 months. Thanks for stopping in today. See you in a couple of days!
These are great cards by your boys. Jacob’s card has many cool elements on it and his layout is fantastic. Nathan has nailed the visual triangle on his perfect CAS creation, which is pretty impressive! Their tags are adorable – I love that set! Last but not least, your gift card bag is gorgeous – what a great idea. Happy New Year to you and your family.
Your boys have definitely inherited your creative gene, Jennifer! Their cards are great! The bag you made is lovely as well. I love the versatility of that stamp set. Thank you for sharing and Happy New Year!
