Hello and welcome to the 30 Days of Christmas.  If you are following along  are you inspired by all the beautiful cards from the design team?

I had a lot of fun making this card.

 

Steps:

  1. Find a piece of designer paper that isn’t busy, such as the blended colours one I used.  You can blend colours onto your own paper to create your own background.
  2. Using white embossing powder, heat emboss your background using the stamp above called Christmas Whimsy Background.
  3. Cut your squares at 1″ pieces and adhere to a piece of white cardstock measuring  4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″.
  4. Adhere your cardstock to a pieces of white cardstock  4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.
  5. Use a coordinating colour of cardstock, size 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, to mat your card.

It’s Christmas in July

Hello folks.  This was a very hard card to photograph because of the pigmented Mica watercolors I used.  Ever since I saw Draped Ornaments, I’ve been wanting to try this technique which is very pretty in real life.  You can get Draped Ornaments, or any other stamp, such as Merry Christmas 2, which was used on my card, at 10% off simply by using TJ10Beth.

Steps to Making My Card:

  1.  Using an embossing buddy, wipe the entire surface of your black paper
  2. Stamp VersaMark on your stamp and stamp it out.  Heat emboss in gold or silver (I did both and both looked great)
  3. Using a small brush and water, paint the ornaments with Mica powders
  4. Using your enbossing buddy, once again, rub the area that you want your sentiment to be and stamp out your sentiment with VersaMark
  5. Heat emboss in gold or silver
  6. Mat with shiny paper if you have it

Thank you for stopping by!

Merry Christmas

Hello friends and fellow stampers.  I hope you had a nice Christmas.  Here in Canada it is a statutory holiday we call Boxing Day.  Unfortunately I have to work, but am off for the next two days and will be doing some entertaining for dinner.  I made a large enough Turkey that there would be left overs for Turkey Pot Pie.

Jane Bosi inspired me with a card that was recently posted on the Design Junkie Facebook page.  I used Whimsy Branch on my background, a well-loved stamp by myself.  Currently, it is in inventory reduction at an unbelieveable price of $4.52.

Paired with Whimsy Branch is Merry Christmas, which is at regular pricing.

To get 10% off your order on non clearance items please use my code below:

 

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a nice holiday season.

Merry Christmas Angel

Hello friends.  Today I have a Penny Black stamp to share with you.  I coloured it with Copic markers.

I have a new version of Photoshop and resizing is killing me.  Can you please let me know if this image is too small?  I’m going through a learning curve with Photoshop and I’m not winning.

This card is going to my granddaughter for her first Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Cocktail-Four Ways

Hello fellow stampers and friends.  Today I’m using Technie Junkie’s Christmas Cocktail and made four styles for you.  I just love this stamp. It is perfect for those friends who enjoy a drink for the holidays.  I also like it for the humour on it.

I created a colourful stamped out image by placing my image in my Misti and colouring small areas at a time with a Tombow and SU markers right onto the stamp.  Then I huff to rewet the marker and repeat approximately three times per area so I get a nice crisp colour.  I found it relaxing while I watched Christmas movies on TV.  Yes indeed, I’m in the Christmas spirit.

The bow die came from a UK papercrafts magazine.

Here I used gold paper from Paper Garden.ca.  It is nice and heavy and comes in many colours.  I embossed my background with a poinsettia-like embossing folder.

I don’t often use ribbon, so I wanted to see how ribbon would look with this image.

Now for my favourite version.  Sadly, I ruined the right hand side as the black was not even.  Again, I used the gold from Paper-Garden.ca.

Which one is your favourite?

Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas – Day 3

Hello fellow stampers and friends.  Technique Junkies is doing the 30 days of Christmas and this is the card I made for Day 2 of this delightful series.  To see what the Design Team, and Pat, made you can take a peak on Design Junkies.

I created my card by following a You Tube video.  I made 10 of these cards to send out.

I stamped out Flourished Christmas Tree with white embossing powder and watercoloured with my Distress markers.  Once dried I stamped out Magic of Christmas.

Christmas stamps will be 20% off for the duration of the 30 Days of Christmas.  If you use my code, seen below, you will get an additional 10% off your Christmas stamps.

There is a new challenge up for Technique Junkies which you can see here.  Hope to see you there!
