Santa Quickies

And where did you take that title ;) 

I mean quick crafts with gifts from Santa! Silly :)
Today It's my turn over at A Blog Named Hero and we are showing you how to put together some quick projects for your holiday season. 

I decided to do a quick Christmas card set with lots of yummy goodies. 

For all the sets I used the die cut letters from Lawn Fawn's Qinn's ABC. I cut them from paper that was coated in double sided sticky tape. To make them shine I covered them with Glitter Ritz glitter. I used Jennifer Mcguire's technique of using copics to color my glitter. 
This first card uses super cute Kelly Purkey Stamps. I masked a line for the large snowflakes then capped it off with the smaller line of snowflakes.

So it's no secret I absolutely adore Neat and Tangled stamps, especially My Heart Sings. I thought this beautiful bird was enough of a focal point that it didn't need anything else. That sentiment is the awesome Danielle Walls handwriting. What?! I know. She sucks. I'm jealous. 

Like flowers weren't going to make an appearance. Pfft. Come on. I love, love, love, these flowers from Lawn Fawn. So much so I decided to turn them into poinsettias. Shhh it totally works. I had to do a bit of masking but still a pretty quick card. It's hard to see but the center is actually stamped with Latte ink from Hero Arts. It's not all red I swear!

Last but not least Cas-ual Fridays. I fell head over heels for this fabulous Christmas set the moment I saw it. Merry Kiss-mas? Shut the front door! Too cute :) 

Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully I'll be back around the ole blog again soon. It's been  crazy around the Latevola household lately!

Don't forget to head over to A Blog Named Hero to see all the rest of the girl's inspiration and there may be prizes .. .  .I'm just saying ;)
