    Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle “Sparkling Wintry Sensations” blog hop!

    For my sparkling wintry card, I created a sheet of faux postage stamps using the pine forest image and a small, rectangular cut out (or reverse mask). I inked the forest w/ several colors of green pigment inks then stamped it inside the mask. I just moved the mask and repeated 5 more times. The wording and numbers were inked w/ a dk pink marker and stamped on top to complete the “stamp” look. I used a perforating blade in between the stamps and cut the outside w/ postage stamp scissors.

    The sentiment was die cut and attached to a fancy tag die cut. (Cutting this die is super easy w/ the Grand Calibur!) The reindeer was inked w/ the pink pigment inks, stamped an cut out. I used a glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter on the reindeer and to add snowflakes to my postage stamps. I used the Mauvelous glitter on the fancy tag and reindeer antlers. The peony colored layer behind the postage was die cut using a scallop border die. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.5.

    Congrats to Kris, the Featured Stamper today on Splitcoast! Love her gallery and I’ve had my eye on Merry Christmas for a little while. I kept the great layout and Christmas theme, but changed the images, color and embossing folder.

    All images are Our Daily Bread designs. On the image rectangle, I embossed the greeting and stamped a portion of the snowflake bg. I embossed a lg snowflake and some smaller ones. The ODBD snowflake die was used on the lg flake and I used a sm punch for the smaller ones. I used a MS snowflake border punch down one side of the cobalt layer. I didn’t have any blue ribbon, so I used the stonewashed ink to dye my white satin ribbon to match. After using the ultramarine marker around the edges, I also embossed them w/ the same ep.

    For the lg bg, I used a Sizzix embossing folder and edge the panel w/ an ultramarine marker. The finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • 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.
