sending Christmas Joy

Hi everyone.

Today I have a card to share that I created using a fun Mama Elephant stamp set that I won from them called Whimsical Winter. It's adorable!

I didn't have the matching die set so I decided to make this a one layer card by doing a little masking.

I started by stamping the deer and rabbit and then colouring them in with Copics. I stamped each image again onto some masking paper and then covered over my images. I then blended some distress ink over two thirds of the panel. I then took my Misti and with the masks in place stamped the tree over top,

Added the sentiment at the top, a few sequins and a red pompon for the deer's nose and that's it for this very easy card.

Thanks for stopping by,

Foil snowflakes

Hi everyone,

Today I have another very quick foil card using Gina K Foil-Mates call Blizzard.

The quality of the photo isn't the best but I was trying to capture all the lovely glitter of the background.

I used Deco Foil Silver Star and the Foil-Mate run through my laminator to create my background piece. This was then die cut using a Zig Zag rectangle die.

The black background was die cut using a stitched rectangle die and the word Joy was die cut with the same black cardstock.

I popped up the whole panel with foam tape, added the sentiment directly onto the snowflake background and gave it a good coating of clear Wink of Stella.

Well, pretty simple but that's my card for today and thanks for stopping by.

Love from our home to yours

Hi everyone,

Well I guess we have all been busy shopping at some of the great crafty sales this past weekend. I know I did.

I have a card today to share that I created using some Lawn Fawn products and also a stencil from Simon Says Stamp. I am also entering this in the lawnfawnatics challenge here and also Simon Says Stamp current flickr challenge.


I started my card by first die cutting the white panel using a Wonky Stitched rectangle die. 
After that was done I added my stencil and applied some embossing paste that has a bit of glitter in it.

I set that aside to dry and went on to creating my scene. All the images were stamped with black ink and then coloured with Copics. The hillside was die cut from a piece of light blue cardstock which I had previously stamped with a large background stamp from Hero Arts and then stamped the sentiments. 

I layered a piece of patterned paper to my entire card base and adhered the panel with foam tape. I added some of the pieces with foam tape and some were adhered flat to the panel.

I did a mirror image stamping technique so that I could get the smoke from the chimneys in two different directions. My Mirror Image stamp is one that I have had for a very long time from Rubber Stampede.

Some Liquid Applique was applied to the roof tops and Stickles and Liquid Pearls to the trees.

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

Foil Christmas card

Hi everyone,

I have a card today created using a Gina K new Foil Mate called Holiday Flora.

This is a new technique to me so it meant that I had to buy a laminator which I did from Costco for CAD $49.99. The Royal Sovereign to be precise. It's a great tool and I'm sure this card will be the first of many foiled cards.

I used a Deco Foil transfer sheet called Emerald Watercolor for the background. I just love the different colours it created on my card even more so in real life when you see it up close. I tried to capture some of the beautiful colours with my photo.
I die cut a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper to create a frame using a Stitched Scalloped die and the main panel was also cut using the same die.

I added the frame to a plain white card base and then popped up the panel with some foam tape.
The sentiment was die cut with green glitter cardstock and then adhered to the panel.

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

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.
