Christmas Cards: My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas

Hello, folks!

A few days back, i posted some MME cards using the Lost and Found Christmas collection.  The cards on today's post have actually been made earlier, using MME's 12 Days of Christmas.  I just didn't take photos of them earlier :)   I had been on a card-making roll that i couldn't stop, trying on this and that, and the card pile just kept getting higher and higher :) Hence, the delay in the photo-shoot.

Here they are, each with a brief description below each photo:

Stamped the cardstock with MME 12 Days of Christmas banner stamp using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Antique Linen. Punched out 1" circles from the 6x6 pad to form a tree.  Another stamp from the set for the sentiment, using Memento ink.  Placed dots of Ranger Stickles on the circles on the tree.

Used the peppermint twist stamp from the set to make background on the white cardstock.  Layered a couple of strips of papers from the 6x6 pad, pop-dotted a cut-out stamped sentiment, and placed cut-outs of the stamped peppermint circles on either side.  Placed a dot of Stickles on the center (as with the background) and placed Glossy Accents on top.  The stamped sentiment looked water color-y though :)

Tied some baker's twine on the holes of Spellbinders Grommet Tags die-cut out of kraft cardstock, and glued behind the red strip of cardstock. Red strip is placed on top of two rectangle papers, to cover the seam. The tag face is swiped with VersaMark; sentiment (from Flourishes) is stamped with Versafine.

Same style as the previous card, using another grommet tag.  Stickle dots are placed at diagonal corners.  Sentiment is from MME L&F Christmas stamp set.

This card is a CASE of Debbie Olson's card in this POST.  Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink "Holiday Photo Finishers."  Dies are from PTI's Limitless Layers 1.75" and Bells and Boughs Collection.  Ribbon is from Daiso.

Made a bunch with this style;  it's that simple to make for mass production :)

Using MME L&F Christmas.  The only stamped part is the circle there on top, attached to one of the brads in the set.  Placed Stickles on the scrolls on the paper.  No hard work, because the papers are so gorgeous!!!

Hope you were able to get some ideas.  Thanks for visiting!

Thank you for all your kind comments on my blog today. You have been one busy girl. I like all these cards--I think my favorite is the Christmas tree made out of punched circles. That is such a clever idea.

Wow! you were on a roll, weren't you. That's a great feeling. Love how you made the Christmas tree from circles. Love the card made from the peppermint. Love that Santa image in the last card. Beautiful

Holy Hannah! You have been in fine fiddle. These are so sweet. I love the ones using the gromit tags especially. They are so cool with their crosed twine.

Go Mayol!
