FROM FAR AWAY FOR CHRISTMAS

Do you live far away from family and friends?  Will you be travelling to spend Christmas with them this year?

This little guy is staying home but sending wishes to his far away family!

Isn’t he a cutie?  I love the images in the Postcard Pals stamp set and did show you another Christmas card I made here.  He was coloured with Stampin’ Blends and then I decided to use the Festive Farmhouse plaid to act as a frame for his cuteness.  But, where to put the greeting —- a little heat embossing with Black Emboss powder to the rescue!

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

ANGEL ON MY SHOULDER

A happy Monday welcome to you!  Today’s card showcases the lovely little Angel from the Illuminated Christmas stamp set.

She’s so pretty and looks lovely ll by herself!  I used some Stampin’ Blends to colour her and feel that the O, Holy Night sentiment looks just right there!

This simply card layout came from the latest CAS(E) this Sketch challenge and sets off this lovely Angel perfectly!

There are other lovely images in the Illuminated Christmas stamp set(WM 147836CM 147833) and I’ll be sharing a couple later this week.

In the meantime, here’s the list of products used to create this Angel card.

JOY TO YOUR WORLD

Hi from Cynthia’s Creative Corner where the snowflakes are falling both outside and inside!

I was organizing my collection of dies and pulled out the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies for today’s joy to your world card.

I decided to back those beautiful snowflakes with Silver Foil (which is rather difficult to photograph) and cut 2 inches off of the edge of the card to attach the silver foil piece.  Then the string of snowflakes was attached using our tough and durable Liquid Multipurpose glue!

This week’s Freshly Made Sketches layout was the starting point which is why I decided to add the greeting using a piece of Vellum cardstock.

Here’s the sketch layout.

TIP:  Use a small piece of a stamping sponge to spread the liquid multipurpose on the back of the vellum.  This makes the glue virtually invisible so it won’t show through the vellum.

Check out the list of products below.

ONE FOR ALL

Hi out there and welcome!  Today’s card uses the One For All stamp set to create this bright and cheery thank you card.

I haven’t used our Poppy Parade cardstock very much so The Paper Players Colour Challenge was just what I needed to bring it out!  They asked us to pair it up with So Saffron and Smoky Slate as well and you can see both colours on this card.

The Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon adds just the right subtle touch.  TIP:  To avoid showing glue on this sheer ribbon, use a Stamping Sponge to add Liquid Multipurpose Glue.  Presto – no glue showing with this easy technique!

Check out the products I used below.  The One For Alll stamp set has some great “all-season” sentiments and I’ll be using it often!

THINKING OF YOU

Thinking of you with this autumn-themed card today.  We do have a layer of snow on the ground but I thought it would be good to step away from Christmas for this card.

I used a card base of Gray Granite and layered on a piece of designer paper from the Wood Textures paper stack.  The card needed some colour, so Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze were my go-to colours for the leaves.

That little piece on the bottom of the greeting oval is from the Frames Elements package.  It need colour, so I dipped it in the Mossy Meadow ink pad and then carefully applied it using tweezers and our strong Liquid Multipurpose glue.

I used the CAS(E) this sketch layout as a starting point,

and the What Will you Stamp challenge for inspiration.

Here’s the list of products used.

SILVER AND BLUE BAUBLE

Hi and welcome!  Today’s card shows off a very glamorous bauble created with the Beautiful Baubles Photopolymer Bundle!

I just love the combination of Balmy Blue with the silver heat embossing and Silver Glimmer Paper!

The bauble itself was cut out with Paper Snips and then a sponge was used to add touches of Balmy Blue ink.

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

HERE COMES SANTA

OK, The Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set has been sitting on my table just waiting to be used, so………. here comes Santa!

So darn cute!  This stamp set also has a matching punch – the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch so I cut Santa out and popped him up in the middle!  The Frost White shimmer paint added a great shimmer to his suit just by using a small paint brush!

I followed along with the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for this cute and simple card!

Here’s the product list for you.

SNOWFLAKE FLURRY

I’ve been having fun with the Snow is Glistening stamp set and matching Snowfall Thinlits dies!  This card sports a flurry of snowflakes!

What better way to show those snowflakes than with our White Embossing powder!  Of course there was plenty of Big Shot action too – had to add a few more snowflakes to this card.  I think it all looks great on the Night of Navy background!

Have you thoroughly checked out the Snowflake Showcase special yet?  These stamp sets, dies and accessories are only here until November 30, 2018 so don’t miss out!

NO STAMPING INVOLVED

There’s no stamping involved in today’s card – just some fun techniques!

I haven’t used the Embossing paste in quite a while and thought that this brick pattern would work perfectly with that bundle of branches.  Adding the ornament from the Detailed Baubles Thinlits dies finished it off nicely.  I also like the muted silver tone of the Galvanized Metallic Paper!

IT’S A GOOD TIME TO SAY THANKS

It’s always a good time to say thanks and this card fits the bill very nicely!

I used a combination of the Falling for Leaves and Warm Hearted stamp sets for this.  The Warm Hearted set has several different greetings to cover all of the seasons and greetings that you need.

That lovely leaf was stamped first with Crushed Curry and then I used a small piece of our Stamping Sponges to add touches of Garden Green for effect.  The simple “thanks” was stamped over top with Tranquil Tide ink and the whole piece was backed with the very cool Chicken Wire Elements.

I used the layout from CAS(E) this sketch and played along with The Paper Players theme challenge of giving thanks.

Here’s the sketch in case you’d like to give it a try.

In case you were wondering….. here’s the short list of products that I used.

Have a happy, thankful day and Happy Stamping!
