Holiday Style Christmas cards

Hi everyone,

Today I have 3 cards that I created in 3 different colours using the Sunny Studio Stamp set called Holiday Style and also the the Silver Bell die.

My first card was stamped with Lobster Dye ink from Lawn Fawn. The bell was die cut from some shiny red cardstock. The background paper is from Lawn Fawn.

My second card is done with Simon Says Stamp Scuba ink and turquoise blue shiny cardstock for the bell. The background paper is from Lawn Fawn.

My third card was stamped with Hero Arts Soft Sand shadow ink and gold metallic cardstock for the bell. The background paper is also from Lawn Fawn.

The pine bough on each card was stamped using my Misti, first with the each colour that I had chosen and then stamped a second time with Versamark ink over top so that I could heat emboss the bough with sparkle embossing powder. Each panel was die cut using a Stitched Rectangle die. I used a mini dauber to blend a little colour over each pine bough and also around the edges of each panel. Each bell was strung using gold and silver metallic thread.

Hard to see from the photos but there is really a lot of sparkle to the pine bough of each card.

Well that's it for these cards and thanks for stopping by.

Sequin Christmas

Hi everyone,

I have a card today that I created using a new Neat and Tangled die.

I started by blending Peacock Feathers Oxide distress ink onto the background panel. Once the colour was all blended I ran it through my die cutting machine with the Neat and Tangled cover plate die.

I wanted a little sparkle around the edges of my card base so I added some Versamark ink and some Psychedelic glitter embossing powder (company unkown as I have had it for a long time).

Once I had adhered the panel to the base card I then started to add sequins in all different sizes into each hole.

I embossed a small piece of cardstock with the same glitter and die cut the merry sentiment die.
Stamped the Christmas sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.

Well that's it for this card and thanks for stopping by.

Holiday Greetings

Happy Monday everyone,

I have a card to share today that I created for the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge here

I chose the Lawn Fawn Winter Fox stamp and die for my card which is from one of their 2011 releases.

I coloured the fox using Copics and added some Nuvo Crystal drops to the mug and a little Liquid Applique to the tip of his tale.

The background was created by blending 3 different distress inks and die cut that panel using a large stitched rectangle die.
I die cut mini snowflakes from white cardstock and adhered them to the card with a little Tombow Mono glue, mounted the fox with a little foam tape and stamped my sentiment.

The base of the card was done with a SSS stencil and some Festive Berries distress ink. I applied the ink only to the edges with a mini dauber and not the whole card base. I thought the bright red stripes were a nice contrast.

I adhered the whole panel with foam tape and that finishes my card.

Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas tag

Hi everyone,

Today I have a tag that I created for 2 challenges. The first one is the SSS Wednesday Challenge here to create a Christmas gift tag and also for Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of
ChristmasTags here

Here's my tag:

I started out by diecutting a circle from a SSS stitched circle die using white cardstock and then applied a Tim Holtz stencil to it. I blended in various Distress ink colours using a mini dauber over the stencil.

I then moved onto diecutting the sentiment also from SSS 3 times. I layered the red cardstock sentiment slightly offset over a black die cut sentiment piece. I purposely left in the little pieces in the letters of the sentiment so that I would not have any white pieces of cardstock showing through the letters.

I die cut a piece of glitter red cardstock using a Lawn Fawn large stitched circle.  Layered the stencilled piece onto the glitter cardstock using some Sookwang double sided tape. As this is quite strong tape I wanted to make sure it would stick to the glitter cardstock. I also cut a stitched circle from some white cardstock and adhered that to the back of the tag so you can write a to and from on the back if attaching to a gift or a bottle of wine or whatever.

I added a little clear Wink of Stella to the sentiment and some decorative ribbon to the top and that completes this tag.

Thanks for stopping by.

It's Christmas time again

Hi everyone,

I have to admit that I only recently have been purchasing Neat and Tangled stamps and dies and I must say that I absolutely love them. So fun!

Today's card is for the current challenge Neat and Tangled Sketch challenge here


I actually won the cute little stamp and die set called Get Yeti that I used for my card.

I started by creating the frame and the background for my card. I used 2 Lawn Fawn frames together to die cut the frame and the background from white cardstock at the same time.
For the inside frame I blended 2 different distress inks - Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar. Stamped the snow hills and snowflakes and heat embossed using white embossing powder. Sprinkled a few drops of water over the piece.

On the outside frame I used a distress Cracked Pistachio oxide ink and blended it over the entire frame piece.

Added the frame and the background piece to a  white cardbase.
The snowman and critters were coloured with Copics and clear Wink of Stella was added to the hat, scarf and the little birdie.
I added a touch of black enamel accent to the nose and eyes of the reindeer doggie.

Stamped the sentiment and popped up the little guys with foam tape and added a few clear sequins.

That's it for this card and thanks for stopping by.
