  • ISC Christmas Card Extravaganza- Day 3

    Welcome to Day 3 of our 1st ever Christmas Card Extravaganza – ISC Blog Hop  (Final Day)!

    Glittering Tree Silhouette 3620a1

    For my Glittering Tree Silhouette, I used the new sheet Eclectic Christmas. The tree profile was stamped w/ white pigment ink onto red linen c/s and embossed w/ a glittery white powder. I like the way the embossing looks on the linen textured c/s. I cut a frame using a Spellbinders nestie rectangle, edged the frame w/ a white marker, then inserted it back in its original place. It’s layered a few times alternating white and green.

    The distressed text background was stamped using a Kaleidacolor pad.  The flourish image was overstamped and embossed w/ a red tinsel powder.  I used cranberry pigment ink and this same red tinsel ep to do the greeting.  A nestie long rectangle was used to cut out the greeting, then I used the end only of the label 4 to recut the ends.

    I used hole punches to punch out the red tinsel embossed dots to be used as faux brads.

    I hope you enjoyed this Christmas card and I know you’ll love the beautiful cards the rest of the ISC Architects have created.

  • ISC Christmas Card Extravaganza- Day 2

    Welcome to Day 2 of our 1st ever Christmas Card Extravaganza  ISC Blog Hop!

    Snowflakes & Pines 3594a3

    For my Snowflakes & Pines card, I’ve used images from the new sheet Festive Season.  The pines were white embossed onto dk loden green c/s then cut w/ a Spellbinders label die. A larger mat of ivory was cut w/ a larger die from the set. They’re attached to a square of dp, an ivory mat, loden mat and an ivory card.

    The sentiment was stamped w/ olive ink and cut w/ a nestie ribbon tag die. Ribbon was inserted through the tag and snowflakes were cut out and attached on top. Holly leaves and more snowflakes were stamped and cut out and branches were punched and all were attached around the top of the tag. Stickles was added on these as well as the trees. A few snowflakes were punched and added to the upper right corner.

    I hope you enjoyed this Christmas card and I know you’ll love the beautiful cards the rest of the ISC Architects have created.

  • Christmas Card Extravaganza!

    Welcome to our 1st ever Christmas Card Extravaganza  ISC Blog Hop!

    The Architects were challenged to choose a different image from the Joyful Christmas and create a card making it the focal point!

    This is my Victorian Ornament card, featuring the round ornament from the new sheet. Victorian Ornament 3586a2
    The ornament was stamped onto vanilla c/s using the bordeaux ink and again onto dp using black ink then the ribbon part was paper pieced onto the vanilla image. I cut a reverse mask of the ornament and stamped the stars and snowflakes inside using the merlot pigment ink then heat embossed using a red/gold glitter powder. The holly leaves were colored w/ a marker then the oval was cut using a Spellbinder’s die. I cut a larger oval and a narrow rectangle out of the same dp. A vanilla rectangle layer was also cut using a die.

    Victorian Ornament close up3585a2c
    The sentiment was stamped and a tag punch used to cut it out. A narrow layer of the dp was added and then it was attached to the image panels. A larger panel of the tree dp was added. The trees were a little too far apart for my layout, so I cut out a couple of the burgundy trees and attached them close to the pine colored trees.

    I hope you enjoyed this Christmas card and I know you’ll love the beautiful cards the rest of the ISC Architects have created.
