poppystamps Seed Snowflake Joy Card…

It’s a candy cane JOY today! Using poppystamps Seed Snowflake Joy die, Tidings of Joy stamp set, twine and white and red cardstock!

I placed a strip of red on the white card base, then mounted the die cut white panel with foam tape to the red strip.

For the candy cane stripe, I cut strips of red and white cardstock with my paper trimmer, covered a piece of copy paper with tape and placed the strips alternating colors over the tape diagonally. Then I die cut the J and Y from that piece.  I used glue and stuck them down flat inside the negative cut in the Seed Snowflake Joy panel.

I stamped the sentiment with the MISTI….oh, I did that before I mounted up the panel though…

I really like how this turned out…another CAS card and so Christmasy looking!

Stampendous Ugly Sweater Contest…

Hi everyone! You are probably wondering what in the world is she talking about now! haha  Well…you know how much fun it is to take on a challenge!  So here I am… but even though I’m supposed to have an ugly sweater here on this cool penguin… I sure wanted it to end up cute!  😀

I needed to stick with Stampendous products so that was a challenge too! The ornaments around it’s neck are from a Christmas tree set (looks like it’s discontinued). I colored the ornaments with Copics and drew the snowflakes on with a white gel pen.

So here’s the details…the gals have been posting since November 25th and continuing through December 8th.

There’s a prize for 3 commenters chosen from the designer’s blogs and Stampendous’ blog HERE.  The winning designer wins a prize too. I hope I win!!! lol

So I’d love it if you’d vote for my penguin between December 9 – 11.  😀  (shamelessly recruiting) lol

Back to the card… I heat embossed the sentiment, snowflakes and snow it’s standing on with white embossing powder. I inked the sky with Distress Oxide inks, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire and the ink blending tool. Did the water droplet thing and glued on some sequins.  It’s an A2 size card.

All I can say is, I’d hate to be walking around with ornaments around my neck! haha

Hope I made you smile with my ugly sweater and you enjoy checking out the other gal’s ugly sweaters!  Thanks for stopping by!  😀

Penny Black Nature’s Gifts Joyful Wreath Card…

How’s it going out there in cardmaker land?  I keep seeing the piles of Christmas stuff I want to use and trying not to panic!  I’ve been playing with this stamp set off and on, trying the pine branch in the set with my homemade wreath builder template.

I was SO excited when I landed on the placement that resulted in this! I took a picture to show you how I placed it. This is the stamp I used from a Penny Black stamp set, I’ll link it up at the bottom of my post. Isn’t that crazy! Love it! (I think I might make the wreath a smidge larger next try)

I used Lawn Fawn’s Noble Fir ink pad to ink it up each turn.  So simple!

Then I die cut the holly in white cardstock and colored it with Copics and the centers with sparkle red Nuvo drops.

I die cut the word JOYful from gold glitter card-stock and glued it flat to the card.

The white panel I stamped the wreath on is 4 ¼ inch square.  I matted it with a dark green cardstock and then onto a 4 ¾ inch red glitter cardstock square. It will fit into an A7 envelope for sure, so no extra postage. The holly is glued in the center so the leaves still are up a little but they lay completely flat.

Now to try to incorporate the pine cone from the stamp set on to a wreath!  😀

poppystamps Pinpoint Heart Mittens and Merry Outline Card…

Hi everyone!  I had some fun making this card….I cut everything in multiple colors because I couldn’t decide what colors to use for what layers etc.  Good grief!  I should’ve done eeny meeny miny mo!!!

I landed here with more tone on tone or in this case, same on same! lol  I almost didn’t add the word mittens but then I did.  Now I can chuckle about it!

I love this big merry outline die though and these sweet mittens.  I used the new background stamp from the Typewriter Holiday Elements set too.

Really simple card that shouldn’t take long if you can make decisions! lol  Some days are worse than others. hehe

The mittens would be a super sweet embellishment to an ice skating or sledding card too!

Simon Says Stamp Diecember Release, Big ‘For You’ Card…

HOHOHO everyone!  It’s Diecember at Simon Says Stamp.com ! My card today uses the new ‘Big For You’ die from the release.

My original thought was to use the ‘Big For You’ on a tag but then I got sidetracked when my order arrived with this Dancing Deer die! lol

So this came out!  Glitter cardstock die cuts on a vellum covered piece of white cardstock.  The white cardstock just needed something and the vellum was perfect!

I used two brown tones for the deer and snowflakes…

Some blue tones for the words and layer piece.

I turned away from the light a little for this last picture… This card picks up any light and sparkles like crazy!  I love it!  I think it’d be pretty on the fireplace mantle nestled in some greens to catch the Christmas tree lights!  What Christmas tree you say?  oh yes, still need to do that! lol

Memory Box Poinsettia Circle Frame Card….

How’s the Christmas Spirit at your house? Y’all have your tree up? oh man, why don’t I have my tree up yet?!  There’s a story there but you don’t want to hear it! funny, not funny!  Tonight is the big Lighted Christmas parade.  I think they moved it up a week thinking it’d be warmer…ha…it’s cold and after 17 inches of snow last weekend…we still have snow!  It will be pretty anyway!

I left my pictures dark today hoping the red would capture better.  I tried anyway! lol

I started out thinking a plain, tone on tone card but that glitter cardstock found it’s way onto my card somehow!  Those sneaky elves.

This is a very basic die cut and glue card…seems like every year I have to have one super glam card….time will tell if this is it for this year! lol

I only used one layer of the Poinsettia Circle Frame, one cut of the Poinsettia Blooms die except for the berry branch sprinkly spronkly things… I cut that die 3 times and the individual poinsettia that comes in the center of the die, I cut six times and layered it on the poinsettias around the frame.

The only things that are on mounting tape are the JOY and to the world sentiments. The JOY die is part of the poppystamps Tidings of Joy stamp and die set.  The JOY die in this set is really a backer die but I didn’t like it stamped so I die cut each letter of the JOY separately and trimmed them to fit together just like the die but the letters were defined then.  I put the letters back into the die to hold them in place and put the mounting tape to hold them together.  Slick!

I really love Poinsettias…every time I see a new one I want it.  I haven’t even purchased a real one yet for the house!  I’m feeling so behind.  At least I have cards made though!  YAY!

OK – one more picture and I’ll leave you to get back to your cardmaking!

Thank you all for stopping by!  I’ll be back!  I have more cards ready to post!  😀
