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.

BAUBLES AND SNOWFLAKES

Today’s card is a combination of baubles and snowflakes!  What do you do with leftover pieces?   Well, you create a new card of course!

I had been playing around with the Thinlits dies from the Beautiful Baubles bundle and the Snowfall Thinlits dies and left a few sitting on my table.  So…. I combined them for this card.  It turned out to be a little “busier” than my usual style but it’s cute!

Note:  The Snowfall Thinlits Dies are only available today and until 11:20PM tomorrow, so make sure that you visit my Online Store to get them before they’re gone for good!

THREE LOVELY TREES

The Snowflake Showcase products are soon going away on Friday, November 30, 2018!   So I took this opportunity to create just one more card to show off these three lovely trees with the Snow is Glistening photopolymer stamp set!

Don’t they look great on the background of Soft Sea Foam?  I stamped the tree 3 times, twice with Versamark and once with the Soft Sea Foam ink and then did a little heat embossing.  White emboss powder for the Soft Sea Foam trees and Clear emboss powder for the soft sea foam tree.  So lovely!

I arranged those trees according to The Paper Players sketch

and added some texture to the card front with the Softly Falling  embossing folder.

If you haven’t yet, make sure to get your favourites from the Snowflake Showcase items.

Here’s the full list of products that I used for these three lovely trees!

POINSETTIA IN VELLUM

Did you know that you can use Thinlits and Framelits dies to stamp an image?  That’s exactly what I did to create this poinsettia in vellum.

Love it!  So, I used a pair of tweezers to hold the thinlit from the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle and carefully pressed it into the Versamark pad.  Then, holding it with the tweezers placed it gently onto the piece of vellum cardstock and pressed it down.  Then it was just a matter of cutting it out.  It’s a great technique and I encourage you to give it a try!

Since I had the embossing tools out, why not emboss the greeting as well!

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!

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.

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.

A TREE FULL OF WISHES

Hi there and welcome to Cynthia’s Creative Corner!  I was playing with the Snow is Glistening stamp set and came up with this simple but pretty card.

That tree stamp is so pretty and I love the golden snowflakes scattered through it!  The greeting was “borrowed” from the Dashing Deer set and masked so just th “Christmas Wishes” would show.  Love it!

I followed the simple sketch laid out by Freshly Made Sketches which made it easy to decide which images to use!
