He’s On His Way

SantaTrees_small

Santa that is!  Playing with some sets from the Holiday catalog that will be retiring on January 4th – if you haven’t gotten them yet – get them soon before they are gone for good!  I loved pairing these two sets together – the trees from Wonderland  and Santa with his Reindeer from Cozy Christmas – a child’s dream come true to see Santa flying through the sky.  The sky is created by first creating a mask for the moon – I used a 1 1/4″ circle and then sponging Rich Razzleberry, followed by Island Indigo, and topped with Night of Navy.   The trees were stamped using Garden Green and Santa and his reindeer using the new Archival Basic Black ink.  I ended with randomly dotting snow using the Signo Gel-Pen.  The sentiment is from Versatile Christmas and is embossed in White Embossing Powder.  I also wanted to show you the inside of the card (as I rarely finish the inside… bad me!) but, today I did:

The inside sentiment is also from Versatile Christmas.  Do you stamp the inside of your cards for a more finished look?

One more item for you, the weekly deals this week include the Big Shot Precision Base Plate – this is an awesome addition for those intricate dies if you own a Big Shot.  For the next 7 days, you can purchase this for just $18.75!  (Plus S/H and tax!)  You will find this great deal and more in my On-line store.

Joyful Wreath

PeacefulWreath_small

Good morning!  Back to working on Christmas cards and decided to try my hand at the wreath from the set Peaceful Wreath in the Holiday catalog.  There are matching dies in the Annual Catalog that make cutting this out a breeze!  The sentiment is also included in the framelit set – a bonus!  The wreath was colored using a blender pen to give it a softer look.  Have you tried using blender pens for a water color feel?   I also stamped the Hardwood stamp in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card stock to give it more of a door look.  Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

Birthday Flowers

Butterfly Crumb_small

Good morning!  I had so much fun playing in the Global Design Project Challenge last week, that I decided to play along again.  This week’s challenge, #GDP013 is a color combo – Real Red, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake.  I love this color combo – it is great for Christmas cards (which I should be working on).  But, I also have some December birthdays to celebrate so went with that theme for my card today.  The majority of the images are from the Butterfly Basics stamp set – such a gorgeous set to work with.  I don’t know if you can tell, but I popped up the flowers (tho not the stems) to add some dimension to the card.  I am pretty happy with how it turned out and hope the recipient enjoys it as well.

Pretty Poinsettia

Good morning!  Today I am sharing a card I made for Friday’s last Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.  This card uses the Reason for the Season stamp set.  I love poinsettias – and creating them with this set is so easy to do.  Have you started on your Christmas cards yet?
