Weekly-Favorite
Best of 2011

t’s a wonderful sketch today (SC358) on Splitcoast and as you can see, my version morphed a little. It started out good, but then I had to move my window over to make room for the big poinsettia and found it looked better to have the window lower than the frame around it. Oh well.

All images & window die are Our Daily Bread designs. The little kitchen scene was stamped, colored and cut out. I used part of a Sizzix ef to emboss the dk red and attached the scene on top. The wood grain was stamped on the white c/s before the window was die cut. The curtains were die cut out of one of the dps. Both of the dp patterns are from an older Christmas stack and I cut out one little gingerbread man for the window. I cut two windows out of card board, sandwiched a piece of acetate between them then attached the window frame on top. I added a little stickles in the lower corners.I put the window back inside the leftover rectangle frame.

The poinsettia was also die cut and put together. I used a hole punch to punch some of the peppermint candies from the dp and used them for the center and also for the corners of the window frame. The finished card is 5 x 6.50 (A6).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Fun color combination today  in today’s Color Challenge (CC348) at Splitcoast! I liked it more than I thought I would even though it was a little challenging for a Christmas card. I have this cute new snowman scene and window die and I really wanted to use it so I hunted around and found some dp that had the colors.

After stamping the scene on kraft (images and dies are Our Daily Bread designs), I masked it and stamped the trees again for a fuller look. With a tiny acrylic paint brush, I painted bleach onto the snowman and snow areas of the scene. I used markers to add some color to the scene. The window was cut into a ridged kraft c/s and then I decided it needed to be lighter so I rubbed white ink over it and embossed it.

The curtains were die cut out of the cajun color dp and added on top. The turquoise dp had a little of the peachy cajun color in it but I added a bit more w/ markers. The finished kraft card is 4.25 x 5.50.

For my card, I made a Swinging Z-Fold  card. There is a tutorial for this HERE. My card started as a 4.5 x 12 piece of vanilla Bazzill. I made the main card fold 6 1/8 inches from the right side and the Z fold 2 7/8 inches from the left side.  I added a red piece of dp to the left and a turquoise piece on the right. Per the tutorial, I opened the fold and die cut half of the ornament thru the left front. For the ornament itself, on coordinating dp, I stamped and embossed the ornament image then die cut using the new Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament die. With a craft knife, I cut out little openings inside the embossing.  I stamped another ornament on a patterned piece of the dp and placed the patterned ornament behind the embossed one and attached it on top of the half ornament cut in the card.

Though technically the top pic is the front, if you unfold the left, it looks a little plain. So to dress it up a little, I attached a frame left from die cutting the patterned ornament . I also added a few pine bough images in a couple of the corners.

On the inside, I added a smaller ornament w/ the greeting on the backside of the large ornament.
