A Christmas hello - CCC #1


Happy Sunday to you!!   I've got a simple card for you today...

 

I forgot to take a pic at an angle that it can be seen, but I used my Wink of Stella marker to put some shimmer on the red lines.  It added a little interest and is very pretty IRL.

My paper is the Paper Studio.  The "bling on a roll" is Recollections.  My sentiment is from Christmas Poems from Flonz.  It is cut using Spellbinders Labels 18.  I inked the edges with some white ink then added a baker's twine bow.  

Today, the challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is a word prompt... candy cane.  *Remember the only real rule is that you make a Christmas card.


Our challenge is changing a bit.  We will now be every other week.  The challenge starts at 12 PM EST on Sunday and goes for a week and a half... closing the Wednesday before the next challenge begins.   

Thanks so much for stopping and have a blessed day!!

A most merry Christmas - AIMPDC 24


It's December already!!!  Can you believe it??!??  So, of course, I've got a Christmas card for you...


This is actually just one layer plus the mat.  It's from Doodle Pantry's French Horn PDF Card Front Kit.  So quick and easy to put a card together with this set!!  The digi paper, image, sentiment, and "layers" are all ready-made.  (And the card is perfect for mailing!!)  I did want a little extra interest, so I used my Wink of Stella pen on the bow and berries.  It's very pretty IRL though hard to see in pics...


Since today is the first of the month, it's time for Doodle Pantry's Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge 24!!  Pop over to the blog and play along!  Just remember you MUST use a digital image.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Christmas in the heart - TMS #380


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!! Today, my card is a fun snowman-y card.  We had snow last weekend, but it melted!  :(  I'm really hoping for a white Christmas!!! 



My DP is Carta Bella "Snow Fun."  The sentiment is My Craft Spot "Joy to the World" and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  My rectangles are all cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and B.  The snowmen (from that same paper pad) are cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals.

This week, we're using one of my sketches plus I'm the sponsor!! :)  First, here's my sketch...

Quick recovery


Happy Wednesday to you!   I've got a card for a friend wishing a quick recovery... unfortunately, my making and sending wasn't as quick as it should have been!   But I got it finished, and it's in the mail today!


The friend had surgery, not an accident, but I think he'll enjoy this.   My image and sentiment are Doodle Pantry's Boo-boo Birdie & Ants.  My DP is Graphic 45 Come Away With Me and is distressed with my Distrezz It All.  The image is cut out with Die-Versions Stitched Nesting circles and framed with Spellbinders Classic Circles.  The sentiment is cut with Sizzix Framelits Banners #2.

Today, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Fab 'n' Funky's challenge with a theme of "things with wings" so pop over and play along!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Christmas Blessings - TMS #379


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

I'm more excited about this card than I have been about a card in a long time.  I've been wanting to try this technique.  Take a look then I'll explain.


See the snow on the tree???  So cool!!   Here's a close up...




Several months ago, I watched this YouTube demonstration of Korin Sutherland (owner of Sweet n Sassy Stamps) making a "moonlit winter wonderland" card.
(You can check it out here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZT4gG2cgNu0&feature=share)

It is so pretty!!  But I didn't have any tree branch stamps... until now! :)  DRS Designs is our sponsor this week and they graciously provided stamps for the DT.  I chose "Summer's End Tree."
I tried to follow Korin's instructions, but I had trouble getting perfect placing of my stamp, so on that attempt, my tree didn't turn out as nicely as hers did. :/  
Another thing happened just a few weeks ago... I was reading a blog and the crafter was raving about her new tool... a MISTI.  I'd never heard of it, so I went looking.  WOW!  But I knew it was beyond my budget.  But... my birthday was last month, and I was given some money as a gift. :)  I looked but could not justify a MISTI but then I saw the Mini MISTI.  I found it for a good price on Amazon and used my birthday money. I LOVE IT!!

Back to my tree...
Following her instructions, I stamped it with Versamark, moved the paper ever so slightly up in the Mini MISTI, stamped with Versafine onyx black, then embossed both with clear embossing powder.  I sponged over the image with TH stormy sky, and because the ink won't stay where it has been clear embossed, the snow on the branches magically appears!  It is soooo pretty IRL!!


Supplies...
~DRS Designs Woven Plaid (made the background paper with it)
~DRS Designs Summer's End Tree
~Memento Rhubarb Stalk
~MS punch
~Sweet n Sassy Christmas Tags clear sentiment
~Clear embossing powder
~Mini MISTI

As I mentioned, DRS Designs is our sponsor for this week...

Polka dot Christmas - CCC #49


Happy Sunday to you!   Today, I've got another Christmas card.  My stash is growing! :)


This one is pretty simple, but I think it looks elegant... even with polka dots.  ;)   All my rectangles were cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and B.  My sentiment is Pink and Main Merry Christmas die set.  The papers, ribbon, and brad are all from my stash.

This week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is a color challenge...

Happy Christmas Star - TMS #378


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  

Here's my card... 


It has navy, silver, and grays... not easy to take a good pic!  Either the navy looked black or the white was too light.  :/  I used my Wink of Stella brush on the wings, tiny star, and ribbon.  Sooo pretty IRL!!  As I said on Sunday, I'm not really a fan of glitter, but I do love shimmer!!! ;)


 My DP is Carta Bella Snow Fun.  All my pieces were cut out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and B.  My sentiment is Sweet n Sassy Christmas Tags and cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Labels.  My image is Happy Christmas Little Star  from All Dressed Up...  our sponsor for this week's challenge...



Here's another wonderful sketch for you by Melissa...

Pretty poinsettia - CCC #48


Happy Sunday!

Here's my card for today...



Christmas Card Challenges has a word prompt of "glitter" today.



I have to admit that there are 2 things in crafting that you won't see much of on my blog because they are just not me... purple and glitter.  I searched and searched my craft room and only came up with 2 papers with glitter on them.   And I actually do like the one I used!  It's MME Lost & Found.  My flower is Darice Poinsettia die.  I cut it twice to have a fuller flower. The sentiment is Sweet n Sassy Christmas Tags and it's cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Banners. .

See? It really is glittery!


Challenges...
Winter Wonderland - ribbon/lace and/or Christmas flowers (I obviously chose Christmas flower)
jingle belles JB:16:23 - Mele Kalikimaka (flowers)
Sweet Stampin' Christmas - anything goes
Happy Little Stampers Nov Die Challenge - anything goes with dies


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!
