Archive for the ‘Christmas/Holiday/Winter’ Category

Congrats to Susan, the newest Featured Stamper (FS673) on Splitcoast! She has a fab gallery & I chose THIS card as my inspiration. I kept the blues & oval but used different images & dies & turned the layout.

I thought a little winter card would be nice. I put thank you on the inside but it could just as well be a winter birthday card. Had to take the pictures flat because this navy bg is one of those colors that defy picture taking. I have a couple of colors that the camera just goes haywire trying to capture the color & this is one. Flat like this, it comes out fine & hopefully you can see the silver snowflakes & silver embossed greeting, too. The snowflakes were stamped w/ the silver ink, but I didn’t emboss them..just heat set them. For the ice skates,  I stamped them on the lighter blue/gray c/s & used Prismacolor Pencils on them. I have really enjoyed using the pencils on different colors of c/s lately & this color seemed to work out well for the skates. A few silver punched snowflakes were added to finish.

Here’s the inside:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy New Year!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC733), we’re headed to Birch Lane. After much browsing, I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. I loved the shiny silver starfish & thought stars would be great for a New Year’s card.

Only 5 more days until Christmas! Are you ready? I will be as soon as the last few gifts I ordered arrive. Seems like there are always a few stragglers. When you order, it says ‘will ship tomorrow!’. Then a few days later, it’s still sitting there. The tracking number they email shows “carrier awaiting receipt” or something. I don’t call that ‘on it’s way’. That sounds kind of like Pre-K. Not kindergarten yet, but not nursery school. So I’m gathering it’s not really shipped yet. Bummer!

So while my packages are in Pre-K, I have a New Year’s card to share. I don’t make a lot of cards just for New Year’s..since I feel the wishes are already included in the Christmas card. But like the tags I made last week, I’m making one this year. The big greeting was silver embossed on a circle die cut. Then I made a couple of star cut outs on the white panel. Die cut smaller stars out of white & silver to have sit inside. The front & stars are elevated a bit w/ some fun foam & I added some silver cord to hang the stars. 

I saw a question on a FB group last week where someone asked if anyone still had a paper crimper & if they still use it. I said I did, so I guess I had to prove it by using it on the metallic silver band & circle.  I think you can see a little of the shine of the silver on the pic below. The last little outline star was left over after cutting the stars, so I silver embossed it & added it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a very Merry Christmas!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS671), so a big congrats to Lisa! She has a wonderful gallery & I was inspired by THIS card. I kept the snowman & colors but made mine into a trio of gift tags instead of a card. I used a few other images, as well.

I hope you’re ready for the holidays! I’m about 95% there. Almost all of my presents have been sent, almost all of the cards mailed & I was actually early getting the tree & decorations up. Since I don’t need any more Christmas cards, I thought a few Christmas tags would be helpful. I love Christmas tags & every year I vow to make some, but hardly ever have the time. I also love Prismacolor Pencils on kraft so I’m combining those two. Tags are little quicker to make than cards but like potato chips, you can never have just one. So I picked three images that would fit on the tags, stamped & colored w/ the Prismas, then added a little detail die cutting on the bottom edges. It’s easy & to me, dresses them up a bit. Plus there’s plenty of room on the backside to write To & From.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
