ONE RED ROSE

Hello there!  The days are counting down to Christmas but I decided to feature this one red rose that’s destined for someone over this holidays.

I love the drama of the black and silver backgrounds – they highlight that rose perfectly!  It’s a simple layout compliments CAS(E) this sketch!  Check it out.

The silver glimmer lattice was sitting on my crafting table from a previous project, so I used it as a lovely angled background.  Love it!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

AT PEACE BY THE RIVER

Happy Friday and welcome!  Today’s card features the beautiful Peaceful Place stamp set that’s available in Clear-mount and Wood-mount.  One of the stamps features a lovely, peaceful scene so I went all-in and did a little colouring.

It didn’t take much to add colour using our Stampin’ Blends markers and a touch or two of the Colour Lifter gave it just the right amount of shading.

I choose to use Old Olive as the card base and frame to play along with the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches.

I have another stamp set in mind for this layout as well and will be posting it next week!

In the meantime, here’s the list of products for you.

A BIG TIME THANK YOU FOR A FRIEND

I was recently asked to create a thank you card for a Manager who is moving away.  Of course, I was happy to do it and came up with this cute card using the Animal Outing Bundle (CM) (WM).

The crocodile background is meant to show the employees and of course, the rhinoceros is the manager!

I used a collection of our Stampin’ Blends to add colour and decorated the oval mat with a length of Black Cord and Leaf ribbon.  Word is that everyone loved it and we will wait to see what the manager has to say.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR GIFT TAGS READY!

Have you finished with your Christmas gift shopping yet?  Do you have a good supply of Christmas Gift tags?  Maybe these will give you a little inspiration.

I’m always short on tags so put these together to add to my growing gift tag collection.  The colour scheme comes from The Paper Players challenge to use Real Red, Shaded Spruce and a colour of my choice(Whisper White).

The base for the tags was cut out of Real Red and Shaded Spruce with the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch.  I used the punch again to cut out the matching designer paper and went from there.  I really like the Sincerely Santa stamp set (WM) (CM) for it’s great greetings that are perfect for tags!

Have you checked out the list for the Year-End Closeout going on now?  Some of these items will go very quickly so make sure that you check them out in my Online Store.

It took a few things to create these gift tags – check out this list below.

THE FOCUS IS DECEMBER BIRTHDAYS

Hi and welcome!  Today I have another birthday card to show – another in the family line-up of December birthdays!

This one is for our nephew and I thought that the wood textures designer paper was a great backdrop for the greeting and small spray of leaves.  They were stamped first with Soft Suede ink and then I added some Old Olive ink with a small piece of sponge just to add a little colour!

The inside explains the “why” of It’s Your Day with a birthday greeting from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.

CAS(E) this sketch provided the card layout which made it easy to put this whole idea together!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Thanks for visiting today and Happy Stamping to you!

BIRTHDAY WISHES FOR MY LOVE

Hi and welcome to Cynthia’s Creative Corner!  December is a busy month not only because of Christmas but our family has quite a few birthdays happening as well!

Today’s card is a simple birthday wish for my husband!  He has blue eyes and looks great in blue, so I used that colour as the focal point!

Freshly Made Sketches posted a simple layout so it was easy to  follow along with it.

The Sunshine Sayings stamp set has some great sentiments and it was easy to choose the ones I wanted to use.  The hearts come from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies!

Here’s the list of everything I used.

TIME FOR A CLEAN CHRISTMAS CARD

Sometimes clean is the way to go – so that’s what I did with some Thick Whisper White cardstock and scraps of the Festive Farmhouse designer paper!

That lovely greeting is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set and I used the matching dies so I could add that tiny bauble!

The layout for this card came from the new CAS(E) this Sketch challenge – simple and clean!

LOVELY BAUBLES TO DECK YOUR HALLS

Welcome to you and thanks so much for stopping by on this wintery Monday!  Today’s card is a study in white and gold to show off the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

Who wouldn’t want those beautiful baubles decking their halls?!

I started out with the great simple sketch from the Fab Friday challenge and went from there.

The Stamparatus is a fabulous tool to help keep the greeting and image exactly where you want them.  A little wipe with the embossing buddy before stamping helps to keep the embossing powder in the right place!

I also used our Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere those thin stripes of Gold Foil.  It’s tough stuff and dries clear!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

SINCERELY SANTA GOODIE BOX

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?  I’m a little late this year but have been busy making goodie boxes for small treats!

This one was created using our Lustrous White mini gable boxes but with a different technique.  I used the Sponge Brayer to add colour to the box itself.  This is Cherry Cobbler ink and I choose to leave it a lighter tone so the designer paper would stand out!  Here’s another angle.

TIP:  To keep the colour only on the outside of the box, I slipped a piece of printer paper inside the unopened box before using the brayer to add colour.

Now, i just need to create a few more to hold those special treats!

Here’s the list of products that I used.
