Heartfelt Christmas Greetings

>> Wednesday, September 2, 2015

My youngest daughter is very into rustic country items.  We have been scouring garage sales and thrift stores so she can find things to decorate her new home.  She paints them, distresses them, and arranges them so cute.  She has really inspired me to do the same with stuff in my craft room - especially old cardboard pieces I have saved.  The last few weeks I have used a ton of it!  Here is my latest creation with cardboard:


This also works for the latest DRS Challenge - Feeling Sentimental (make the sentiment the focus of your card) and you still have today to make it before the deadline.  I used the new DRS Designs Baby Jesus Heart  and Jesus is the Heart of Christmas Greeting.  I hand cut the heart twice for stability so it could stand up to being set on this fun silver Christmas Garland.  

I need to get going so I have more Christmas cards done before it is too late!  This may be one style I mass produce for some work friends as it was really easy and it looks so festive.

Hugz!

Penguin Ornament

>> Tuesday, September 1, 2015

Hi Everyone,

For today's card, I used the recently released Simple Christmas Ornament as my feature item.  It's a great size that works perfectly on a card front, is great to color using a special technique, and can also fit any number of stamps inside of it. So many possibilities!

I chose this cute Percy Penguin stamp for inside and stamped and colored  my Simple Berry Branches  for my background.  


After I fussy cut my ornament, I didn't have the patience to wait for the glossy glaze to dry, so I skipped that and embossed the entire thing with some clear powder instead.  I attached it to my card with some dimensional tape and added a matching bow.

The tiny sentiment came from the Christmas Multi Greeting stamp.  I only inked up that one portion of the stamp and punched it out, adding it with some dimensional tape as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Heart of Christmas

>> Sunday, August 30, 2015



Today's card is a Gap card.




I stamped the Baby Jesus Heart with black ink colored with Copic markers then I used a embossing pen on the heart and gold embossing powder. This was fussy cut and layered onto a die cut heart. The white Background paper was stamped with the Starry Background and blue ink this was attached to a navy card.I stamped the Jesus is the Heart of Christmas Greeting with embossing ink and gold embossing powder. A gold ribbon was added to finish the card.

Have a wonderful day,

Janett

Merry, Merry

>> Saturday, August 29, 2015

Good morning!
Today I am using left-overs from Thursday's card.  The parts I cut out/off.
Hey, never throw anything away, right?  The pieces I cut off and out from Thursday worked perfectly today.  My inside red piece was embossed with a holly design and I created an inside green frame as well with a green frame for my oval to finish it off.  I used green, red and black for my plaid with a yellow pen to add the tartan look.  My berries and pine boughs are plain today, no Stickles or Glossy Accents but I really love the color that shines through without it sometimes.
I love this sentiment stamp and the greenery with it!
Here is a second card I made with the Triple Holly 1004F and the new Deco Christmas New Year488G Just getting into the Christmas groove and colors!
My background is done with Color Burst water colors. The frame cut out and double matted. Then I stamped the outside panel with the Triple Holly.  The berries and the word Christmas are glittered.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
 Happy stamping!

Holiday Hula

>> Friday, August 28, 2015

by Julie Warner - The Write Stuff
 Happy Friday!
I hope you're having a great week! It's actually been cooler here in the SE this week...a little cool front came through so low 80's during the day & low 60's at night w/ low humidity. Wonder how long it will last. I was going to show you a Christmas card using some more of the new images, but I didn't get the pics taken so here's an easy one that I already had the pics finished. I was looking thru my stash of "stuff" one day and I came across some Christmas card fronts I had saved thinking I would repurpose them. These were like free ones you get when the company hopes you'll order some. Right...that's so not happening around here. But I did use the card front! I thought it would look super behind the Hula Pig and Palm Tree.  So after coloring them, I fussy cut them along w/ the Santa Hat. The greeting was stamped on a die cut little ornament & I added red stickles all around it & some clear stickles to the fur on the hat.
I had a couple of narrow white frames so I added them just for a little interest and to kind of resemble a postcard or photo type of layout. These are the Copics I used for the images.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
Supplies:
paper: X-Press It white, recycled greeting card
ink: Memento Tuxedo black
accessories: Spellbinders A2 matting basics A & B, ornament tag dies, Copic makers, stickles, Memory Box precious star dies (little bow only)
