  • Snowflake Love

    A big congrats to Cindy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS861)! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the Love part & the layout, but I made mine a Christmas theme, used snowflakes & different colors.

    For my silvery snowflake card, I wanted it to be really shiny so I glued a heavy weight aluminum foil to card stock then die cut it twice: first w/ a mini slimline then w/ a piercing die of flowers & swirls. It looks terrific in person, but it’s so hard to photograph. I also die cut some snowflakes & the Love out of the same foiled cardstock. The flowers & leaves were die cut out of 3 shades of blue & silver snowflakes attached on top. The greeting says ” Peace. Love. Joy” but I replaced the Love word w/ the die cut version.

    I used a dk blue snowflake paper for the sides. I die cut it w/ the same mini slimline die then cut it in half & attached it on either side of the foil panel.

    Thanks so m

  • 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

  • Christmas Dogs

    A mini slimline card featuring sweet little Christmas dogs & colorful paper. Change up the paper & colors to customize a stack of Christmas cards. The matching dies for the images make it quick & easy.

    We are visiting the interesting Pinterest Board of Carole Jarvis for the Inspiration Challenge (IC919). I used THIS picture as the inspiration for my card.

    I used a new set of adorable Christmas dogs & some new slimline paper for my card. After coloring & die cutting the cute pups, I used the stitched mini slimline dies to cut the layers of papers. I also wanted some of the reverse side of the striped paper so I used the corner of a square stitched die to cut the little triangle tabs & added a narrow red layer behind them. I also used the red for a circle layer behind the greeting.

    The dogs & greeting circle were popped up just a bit.

    Here are the Copics I used:
