Christmas Wishes

Do you like non-traditional Christmas colors?

I certainly do!  I get tired of seeing everything done in red and green.  I like to think outside the box and create something a little different for the holidays!

Today's project is just that--different!  The card base is whisper white and the next layer is done with our Brushed Silver cardstock.  The piece is 5-1/4" x 4".  The next layer is done in Bermuda Bay!  Who would ever use a color that makes you think of summer or the tropics on a Christmas card?  That's right!  ME!!!

I used the stamp set called Christmas Wishes and used my marvelous markers to color the gifts.  I used Pool Party and Smokey Slate for the gifts and then used the Bermuda Bay for the greeting!  To finish it off, I used some of our beautiful 1/8" silver ribbon found in the Holiday Mini catalog!!

This is another of our Stamp-a-Stack projects!

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Never too soon to start thinking about your holiday cards, is it?

I know if you are like me, I send out nearly 100 holiday cards each year.  For many of my friends, it is the only time each year we communicate with each other.  Because of this, I want the communication to be extra special!

Today's project is one that we will be doing next Saturday at the Christmas Stamp-a-Stack II!!!  It is my rendition of Santa Claus is Coming To Town!

The card is made from whisper white cardstock.  The second layer is Real Red and is cut 4" x 5-1/4".  The "fur" strip is made with whisper white cardstock and is 2" wide x 4" long.  His belt is made from a 1/2" wide x 5-1/4" long piece of basic black cardstock.  It is weaved through a piece of Silver Gimmer Paper that is punched out with the 1" square punch and slotted using the paper trimmer! His "buttons" were created using the Build-A-Brad bases and the basic black candy dots from the Neutrals collection!  The final touch is the greeting stamped in versamark ink and embossed with our white embossing powder!

It is your lucky day!!!  The "Join for only $25" has been extended for one more day!  Today ONLY! Get in on the opportunity NOW!!!

Festive Flurry - Video too!

How about this simple beauty?!!

It can't get much easier than this!  Have lots of holiday cards to make but are feeling overwhelmed by the shear number of them that you need to make?

This could be a project for you!!

Using our new Thinlits this project is a breeze!  Cut your cardstock 6 x 6 (you can get 4 cards out of 1 sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock!), run it through the big shot using the Labels Thinlits and it not only cuts out the shape of the card but it also scores it for you!  If you want to see how it works, click the link right here to watch a previous video that I did for you all!

After cutting out the card, you will use the Northern Flurries embossing folder and just place it along the right corner to embellish the right side of the card.  I added a few rhinestones to really dress it up!

Using our silver glimmer paper I used the framelits that accompany the thinlit set to decorate the focal point.  The stamp set that I used is called, "Festive Flurry".  I stamped the images in Coastal Cabana ink.

This is a project that will be done at my upcoming Christmas Stamp-A-Stack II - November 2nd!  Click here to register for that event!!!

................ Until next time!

Deck The Halls

You are probably thinking that I am rushing Christmas??? right?  If you have to make and send as many holiday cards as I do....it is NEVER too early to start!

I created this project for a recent stamp camp that I held.  It was probably the easiest card we created that day but certainly one that was loved by all that attended!

The card itself his made from whisper white cardstock that is 5-1/2" x 8-1/2".  The next layer is Gumball Green and it is embossed with our newest striped embossing folder found in the holiday mini catalog!  The bow, which I consider to be the focal point, was made with our Polka Dot DSP and the Holiday Gift Bow Bigz Die found in the Holiday Catalog!
