Okay, Last Christmas Card

I don’t intend to post any more Christmas cards this year, in fact I likely won’t post anything more this year. I’m going to take a few weeks off to get ready for Christmas and to prepare some projects for the upcoming Demos Galore in January.

The background on this card is sprayed with Frost White Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol but it’s really hard to get a photo of that sparkle.

I’m playing along with the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Supplies:
Bundles – Snowflake Wishes
Stamp Sets – Snowflake Wishes
Die Cutting & Embossing – So Many Snowflakes dies, Stitched Shapes dies, Winter Snow embossing folder
Punches – Triple Banner punch
Ink – Coastal Cabana stamp pad, Frost White Shimmer Paint
Paper – Coastal Cabana cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Snowflake Splendor designer series paper
Accents & Embellishments – Blue adhesive-backed gems
Coloring Tools – Stampin’ Spritzer
Tools – Paper Trimmer, Simply Scored, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, Take Your Pick
Adhesive – Stampin’ SEAL, Stampin’ Dimensionals, liquid glue

Faux Shaker Card

In early November I attended Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage Online convention and one of the cards shown used this technique to create a faux shaker card. I’d never heard of this before and it’s a much easier way to make a shaker card. I may not include layered paper on the inside of the clear envelope next time but I was following a sketch.

To make the shaker: you place a piece of paper inside a clear envelope, add your sequins, fold over edges and seal the envelope. So easy!

Poinsettia Petals Magic & Wonder

I embossed the red velvet paper for this background. It’s pretty but not as pretty as the poinsettias are when I use them to emboss the red velvet paper. I think I will save it for poinsettias. I still have some white flocked paper from last year that I should pull out and use for poinsettias, I bet that would be pretty too.

Poinsettia Petal

I’m making a card and I’m not using the Snowflake Splendor Suite! Can you believe it? 🙂

I recently purchased the Poinsettia Petals bundle and I wanted to play with it and the Red Velvet Paper because the embossing on the Red Velvet Paper is gorgeous. I didn’t get a great photo with the little die but I plan to use it with the large poinsettia dies for my card class to go next month.

To get the little poinsettia’s to curl up, I gently used my finger nail.

Snowflake Wishes

Have you ever had an idea for a card but not like how it ends up. I kept going with this card but I’m still not sure I like it. I started with a sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and I wanted to make it landscape and a Spanner Panel Three Layer Card  because I thought it would work with the sketch… The die cut I used for the opening was a little wider than I was thinking so I had to back it with a window sheet to give it some stability. I’d also discovered that the Stitched Nested Label dies went with the label from the So Many Snowflakes dies that I wanted to use it too. *sigh* My front panel was die cut slightly crooked. Well, tell me what you think.

The snowflake label looks so cute cut out inside the Stitched Rectangle dies.

Supplies:
Bundles – Snowflake Splendor Suite, Snowflake Wishes
Stamp Sets – Snowflake Wishes
Die Cutting & Embossing – So Many Snowflakes dies Stitched Nested Labels dies, Stitched Rectangles dies
Ink – Highland Heather
Paper – Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Whisper White Thick, Window Sheets, Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper, Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper
Accents & Embellishments – Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems
Tools – Paper Trimmer, Take Your Pick
Adhesive – Stampin’ SEAL, Mini Glue Dots, Tear & Tape

Flowering Blooms

I just got this stamp set and I wanted to play with it right away. It’s a Distinktive stamp so all of that shading comes from the stamp. Since the flower is one stamp, I did have a few tries for stamping it. The one on Blackberry Bliss is actually stamped with Just Jade, I cleaned the stamp, and then I applied Magenta Madness to the flower portion using a sponge dauber and stamped it again. I love that it how it came out with a more Blackberry Bliss color. I also love the Stamparatus so I can do this. The Magenta Madness card is colored with the Stampin’ Write markers and I used the Stamparatus for it too.

Let It Snow…

…well, not really but I love this paper.

The Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so cute.  I love the little snowmen covered in glitter.  I had a really hard time trying to get that glitter and the glitter in the shimmery crystal effects to show up on camera.  The sentiment is double heat-embossed using white embossing powder and the Stamparatus.

My Scrap Bin Runneth over

I was trying to straighten up my crafting table and I was looking through my scrap giant pile bin.  I found three card-front sized pieces of embossed whisper white.  I also found some Mint Macaron die cuts.  I thought they would be great on the latest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I meant to use more of the die cuts but I glued everything down before I remembered to use them.

Say Goodbye to Hedgehugs

I think the Hedgehugs set is just so cute but I didn’t even notice the mushrooms until I made this card for today.  I colored in the bird image and the flowers using the Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Real Red, and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  The rhinestones were colored with the Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker but it may be hard to see the color.
