It’s getting close to Christmas, and I’m not sure I have enough days to share my cards, so here are eight cards in one blog post.  Hold onto your hats, folks!

This was my 2009 holiday card, but the rest of the cards I am sharing were made this Fall.  I used DCWV paper and cardstock and cut the 12″ x 12″ sheets into three 4″ x 6″ cards.  This is a matchbook style card and the top panel tucks into the flap at the bottom.  I made the snowflake with my Cricut Expressions machine and added fine glitter to it with glue.

I used my Stampin’ Up! medallion stamp on shimmer paper and embossed the image in silver.  I used Stickles glitter glue and accidentally smudged it when I was stacking my cards, whoops!

I finally got to use these two stamps I bought a year or more ago at Impress Rubber Stamps!  I love how the swirls look like octopus legs.  🙂

Here’s another similar card.  I love rub-ons, so this beautiful “Merry Christmas” you see at the top is just a rub-on sentiment.

This is another snowflake card from when I was in the mood to emboss everything.  The decorative edge was created using my favorite edge punch from Stampin’ Up!

This card is mainly made with CTMH products: the paper, stamp, ribbon and embellishment.  I found the holly paper tape at Hobby Lobby and was pleased that it seemed to go well with the CTMH products.

This shimmery green card was made with three kinds of Christmas paper tape, a rub-on sentiment, stick-on pearls & a poinsettia from CTMH, and a Fiskars edge punch.

This card was designed by the lovely and talented Christine David from Create with Christine!  She showed a small class how to make this lovely card using Close to My Heart (CTMH) products.  I love the cool blue colors!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

  1. Stunning cards! I really like the shimmering green one “Peace Joy Hope”. So simple and yet it is stunning. Merry Christmas!

      • Wow, I applaud you for maikng your own Christmas cards!! I’m going to just send them from online apparently, there’s websites where you can pay $1 and they actually send physical cards to where you want them to go.
