Crafty Festival of Christmas: Last Minute Lucy- Anything Goes!

OK, this post got a little ahead of it's self, going live before I even had it finished! Really, it should have been more patient!! I mean, honestly! The theme this week is Last Minute Lucy. You know I was creating the content this morning.

This is the last post of the 2019 Festival of Christmas, and this time we are going to share a bunch of our last minute projects. I know I always end up making more cards, gifts, and tags.

For my projects, I am focusing on those last minute Christmas cards. I like to keep them fairly simple, but still lovely. The Concord and 9th Turnabouts are so helpful for that! This is the Snowflakes turnabout, with three colors of embossing powder!

The iridescent one is from the Brutus Monroe monthly embossing powder club and it is called Frost Bite. I love it!! I also used Alabaster and White Satin Pearl.  The White Sating Pearl over Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink made a lovely new color, too.

The sentiment was tamoed with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink also, and is from Very Merry Sentiments.

This was all stamped with Distress Oxides using the Holly Berry turnabout and the same Very Merry Sentiments set.

I used 4 different colors for the berries even. And some Copper embossing on vellum.

This last card uses up the last of my stash of Mellow Moss cardstock, which retired. from Stampin Up several years ago. The Pinecone Background from Simon Says Stamps was something I just had to have, since I adore pinecones and pine trees.

My cardstock was a bit faded and splotchy, so I took some Forest Moss Distress Oxide ink and sponged over the cardstock. I also spritzed it with Pearlized water before embossing the Pinecone background with gold embossing powder.

The Very Merry Sentiments set came to the rescue again, on the front of the card and inside.

There they are, my last minute cards! Now I need to get a few into the mail, and go make the calendar with everyone's birthdays on it that my mother-in-law requested!

The next stop is the lovely Linda van Wely!
