A SILVER CHRISTMAS JUST FOR YOU

Today’s card gives you a touch of silver with these lovely snowflakes!

CAS(E) this sketch posted a good one for this week and I really had to think about the layout of my project.  Here’s their sketch so you can see why I did my card this way.

Starting with the Year of Cheer Specialty designer paper gave me the great idea to add those silver snowflakes from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies.  Then, it was easy to add the sentiment from Star of Light heat embossed in silver to finish things off!

I’ve always tended toward silver as part of my Christmas decorating but have a friend that really likes gold.  Which is your favourite?

Here’s the list of goodies that I used.

WHITE ON WHITE WONDER

Well, we got more snow and some very chilly temperatures over the weekend which helped to inspire me to create this white on white Christmas card.

This is a 4-1/4″ square card which fits in for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge as well as The Paper Players white on white challenge.

Here’s the sketch that I followed for Freshly Made sketches.

I pulled out the older but beautiful Flurry of Wishes stamp set and had some heat embossing fun with those beautiful snowflake images.

CHRISTMAS HAPPINESS – FRAMED

It’s back to Christmas cards for today’s post and I’m using the Christmas Happiness stamp set for this lovely, framed picture.

The Pretty Pines Thinlits dies worked perfectly for this card – the only stamping involved is the greeting!  I followed along with The Paper Players Holiday Pines challenge and am pretty sure that this works.

STANDING GUARD FOR CHRISTMAS

Good day to you, I hope your weekend was a happy one!  Today I’m using the solder from the Sugarplum Dreams stamp set.

This was a special request from one of my clients and I was happy to oblige.  It’s very relaxing to sit and just colour and see that soldier come to life!  The layout comes from Freshly Made Sketches and it’s simplicity made it easy to highlight that solder!

FOR A SHINY BRIGHT CHRISTMAS

Hi there and welcome.  I went back to Christmas for today’s card and played with die-cuts, glitter and glue!

I started out with our wonderful Thick Whisper White cardstock, made some choices from The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and got to work!

I cut the tree bundle twice from the thick cardstock and one of the deer.  Glue the two trees together using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

TECHNIQUE:  The glitter on the trees is a combination of Gold and Dazzling Diamond glitter (about 1 tsp of each).  The Multipurpose Liquid Glue works really well for this technique – just use the wide end to lightly spread the glue over the trees and then sprinkle the glitter for a great effect!

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

I hope you give this technique a try and Happy Stamping!

SIMPLE GIFTS

Welcome to another edition of Christmas on my blog!  Today’s card is simple with a bit of a slant.

CAS(E) this Sketch has a pretty slanted (lol) sketch to play along with this week so I pulled two patterns from the Christmas Around the World Designer series paper to start.  I cut them out with our Layering Squares Framelits dies and added the greeting from the beautiful Star of Light stamp set(142110).

If you look very closely you can see that I used the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing folder to add texture to the card base.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.  Remember – the Designer Paper Buy 3 Get 1 Free sale is still on until October 31, 2017!  Make sure that you are stocked up!

JOY & WONDER FOR THE SEASON

Today’s card sends out joy and wonder for the Christmas season using the Christmas Happiness stamp set(144868).

I kept it simple so I could play along with the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary.

I stamped the pine spray twice with Old Olive ink to give it a thicker look and then added those pretty pine cones that I cut out with the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies.  They don’t exactly match the images in the Christmas Happiness stamp set but they do work very well with just a little trimming with Paper Snips.  That tiny spray of mistletoe was cut out with Paper Snips as well.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

Here’s to a great Tuesday for you and Happy Stamping.

GLITTERY SNOWFLAKES TO MAKE YOU SMILE

Hello to a fresh new week and some glittery snowflakes to make you smile.

I started out with a completely different idea for Freshly Made Sketches, but since it is frosty outside, decided that these gold embossed snowflakes should be the way to go.

TIP:  Make sure to give the cardstock a good wipe with the Embossing Buddy before you stamp your images.

The Colorful Seasons bundle has the perfect snowflake stamp and matching snowflake thinlits so I put the Big Shot to work!  That lovely greeting is from the Eastern Beauty stamp set, so this card can easily be a Christmas card by adding the holiday greeting inside or a lovely all occasion card.

Here’s the list or products that I used.

EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY

East, drink and be merry is a classic Christmas greeting and I loved using it for this happy card.

The Christmas Around the World Designer paper has so many happy images and I just couldn’t resist adding it to this card.  Ir’s also on the Buy 3 Get 1 Free special that’s on until October 31, 2017.

The layered labels with that inviting greeting can be removed to use on a parcel.  Adding the pretty pines die-cuts topped with the red ribbon top that pretty parcel label of just right!

TIP:  If you want to get different colours on your image as I did on the greeting, just use our Stampin’ Write Marker with the “direct to stamp” technique.  Voilá, you have a multi-coloured greeting.

Here is the list of everything I used for today’s card.
