  • Snowflake Joy

    An A2 sized Christmas card made using one of a mini slimline set of dies. Add some lovely paper, some die cut snowflakes & Joy on a fancy oval & you have a beautiful card!

    A big congrats to Jennifer, the newest Featured Stamper (FS860)! She’s a scrapper w/ a lot of beautiful pages. After much browsing, I chose THIS page to case. I kept the Christmas theme & most of the layout, but changed it to an A2 card, used different paper & dies & simplified it to fit the space.

    For my card, I used a mini slimline die to cut the lovely holly paper and also the wine red piece. On the red, I stamped some holly berries w/ Brilliance moonlight white ink. I used this ink because it dries faster than my pigment ink & it’s also not quite as bright. I really didn’t want the berries to stand out that much. A leftover diagonal strip along w/ 2 white glitter strips were added in between the red & the holly paper. A fancy oval die was used on the sea green & I fussy cut a red layer to go behind it. The Joy was die cut out of white glitter paper as were the 3 snowflakes.

    The Joy was popped up as were the snowflakes to give them a little dimension.

    Thanks so
     much for stopping by!

  • Christmas Cat

    A cute little kitty Christmas card w/ Christmas tree cupcake & coffee. Perfect for the cat & coffee lover.

    We are visiting Nature’s Jewelry & their Pinterest Board for this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC920). I combined a couple of pieces as inspiration for my card. THIS cat & THIS tree.

    After stamping, coloring & die cutting the images, I die cut a large tree print paper & smaller white panel. I added a very narrow red layer in-between the two for contrast. The greeting was stamped on a separate rectangle & layered onto a fancy red oval.

    I added some stickles to the ornaments, whipped cream & a couple of stripes on the cat’s sweater for a little sparkle.

    Here are the Copics I used:

  • Gold Glitter Trees

    A very glittery, gold Christmas card featuring some die cut trees & greeting. Easy to make w/ lots of impact. Change the paper or colors & you’ll have a bunch of finished Christmas cards in no time.

    It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS858) so a big congrats to Vikki! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the gold trio element & horizontal layout, but I used trees instead of leaves, added a layer of designer paper & a die cut greeting instead of a stamped one.

    For my glittery gold trees, I used a roll of glittery gold wrapping paper & attached to plain card stock before die cutting the trees & Merry out of it.  There is one larger tree, but it was too tall to fit this direction so I used 1 medium & 2 small trees instead.  I attached them to a piece of ivory card stock, then attached this to a larger piece of green print paper w/ a very narrow ivory frame behind it. I die cut of the shadows for the Merry greeting..one in ivory & one in dk green. The Merry is attached as normal on top of the ivory. The dk green shadow was offset a bit to add some contrast.

    The center tree & greeting were popped up to add some dimension & interest.

    so much for stopping by!
