PWP DT Post: Quick Christmas Cards

Dear scrappers,
Today is my day to post for PWP's The Aviary Blog: I made some quick cards a visit to a nunnery, where my daughter was going to do some Caroling.  

For this album, I used:

Inks: Saddle: Hero Stamps. versamark ink
Embossing powders 
Hero Arts dies
My Mind  Eyes printed glittered papers
CTMH White Cardstock

I made this card using scraps from other projects and quickly stamped the sentiments and images from this amazingly beautiful stamp set. These images are so rich that don't need a lot to look complete. I made more than 10 cards in no time this way...

I hope you enjoyed my cards and visit my blog.

Have wonderful and blessed Happy New Year and stay nice and warm crafting along...

Vicky Tovar

I am joining the following challenges:

New stamps and new dies

Dear Scrappers,
This is my post for Paper Wing Productions, The Aviary, I created a quick minialbum in that morning. I was inspired by the Paper Wings Productions: Perfect numbers, clear stamp set.

For this album, I used:

Liquid Glass

Inks: Black, red, and gold: Hero Stamps. 
Glittery snow, DecoArt
Glittery snow, Martha Stewart 

A closer look at my mixed media title:

For this album, I used mostly components of the nesting mixed media kit. I added some fake snow 
to the snowflake and the inked wood shipies 

For the album covers, I used the harder packing material included in this kit. And make the wholes using my Cro-A-dile. I attached some trimmed paper from October afternoon included in the kit, sanded and inked the edges. I cut more paper for the inside pages and added picture mats and  stamped embellishments. The coordinated kits makes this process a breeze. 
Some of the inside pages:

I used this sketch to make my inside pages:
I am also entering the following challenges:
