Christmas Folk Art Decor

Hello, Prickley Pear friends! It is Jessi from Kissin' Krafts. Today I am sharing one of my favorite Christmas traditions. It is decorating the house.

My Christmas decor is full of handmade folk art created by my grandmother. She is a talented artist, who created Santas from different periods and countries throughout the times.

My favorite Santa, along with the family Elf, Lucas.

I am fortunate to receive a couple of larger Santas as well.

Another Christmas decor that my grandmother created, is a Wooden Village. The village consists of 10 buildings. All handpainted with amazing details. 

My grandmother's work has been published in several Better Homes and  Garden magazines years ago. This village was even the cover for one of them!

Thank you for stopping by today!

PPRS Monday Brrrrrrrrr

Who would like a hot cup of chocolate? I know that most of the US is experiencing a strong cold blast. It is cold here in Texas, but missing the snow. So why not create a card to fill the snow void? One of my favorite Prickley Pear stamp is the Swirls and Snowflakes. It is the highlight of this card, along with some other Prickley Pear goodies!

Here is my wintry creation:

The snowflake and swirls stamp is used in a variety of blues and gray. The sentiment die is colored in with makers. A simple ribbon is added across the card.

Please stop by the Prickley Pear store to see the amazing selection of rubber stamps and clear stamps available!

Have a great day!

Get, Inky! Challenge - Christmas

Are you ready for the next Get, Inky! Challenge? With Christmas only a few weeks away, why not continue to show off your holiday creations! Please stop by the Get, Inky! Challenge blog to see the rules and details.

Here is my Christmas creation using the Get, Inky! Stamps 2013 Holiday Stamp set:

I used the holly stamp from the Holiday stamp set repeatedly along the border. The holly stamp is perfect to color in with markers. I love to practice my coloring skills. I am still a beginner, but I think it is getting easier. To highlight the holly, a small red sequin to the center of each one.

To finish the card, I added a simple sentiment. The sentiment is colored in with a variety yellows.

Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to see the latest challenge and details over on the Get, Inky! Challenge.

Have a great day!

PPRS Holiday Monday

Yes, it is finally December! Bring the decorations out and crank up the Christmas music!

Welcome to Prickley Pear Monday! I have a simple holiday card to share with you today!

Using the Prickley Pear's Flourished Ovals 3 Holidays stamp set:

I wanted the card to look like a door, so I added the woodgrain embossing to the back layer. The stamp looks like a wreath, so I pieced it together.

I hop you will stop by the Prickley Pear blog to see some more amazing projects from their talented DT.


December Trendy Twine Challenge

Welcome to the new Trendy Twine Challenge! With the holidays here, we are thinking of gift wrapping ideas, right! I will admit, this is a challenge for me. As you can see, I keep my gift wrapping simple.

The challenge is to use twine on your Holiday gift wrapping. Cannot be any simpler!

Here is my gift-wrapping idea using one of the newest Trendy Twine colors, Cherry Limeade:

To add alittle something to the gift wrapping, I added bells to the bottom of the twine bows.

Check out the new holiday colors in the Trendy Twine Store!

We cannot wait to see your holiday wrapping project! Enter them HERE!
