Christmas Houses!

Hi everyone! It's cold here in Colorado so it's a perfect time for a snowy card!  This one features glittery snow, cheery houses and even some poinsettias!

The main background of the card was dry embossed in swirls and then layered with snowy hills. I stenciled snow drops onto the hills with embossing paste and added loose glitter for extra sparkle! Before the houses were tucked into the hills, I added a yellow glittered background for the lighted windows. Makes me just want to look into those warm and toasty homes!

The tiny trees were stacked in shades of green and added to the snowy scene along with a simple sentiment and bright flowers. A sweet Christmas Card!

Beautiful Ornaments!

Hi everyone! Have you decorated your tree? I haven't quite got there yet so I'm spending my time putting fancy ornaments on cards! Color Throwdown has a new color challenge and I was inspired by not only the colors but the image as well! Wish I could snap my fingers and a tree like that would appear in my home!

I started by creating colored ornaments from the Simon Says Stamp Corbel Ornament Die knowing that I would be placing them against a navy background. After die-cutting, I used Press-N-Seal to hold all of the pieces together before adhering them- so much less time consuming than putting all the pieces back together! The sentiment is embossed in white and the final touches were some gold gems and white sequins!

Midway through finishing my first card, I realized I could use the negative die-cut and create a second card that would be just as pretty! I simply fussy cut around the outline and then put all of these gorgeous ornaments on another navy background! Keeping with the white, I embossed another sentiment but added accents of silver for a bit of shine!

The Paper Studio Blue Glimmer Card Stock

Christmas Balls!

Hi everyone! Christmas card season is in full swing and I have two simple and fun cards to share with you today! They feature one cute little stamp from Concord and 9th's 'O Christmas Tree' set in the cutest way!

These little ornaments were all stamped in a row and then the ball portion was stamped a bit offset in bright and cheery colors. They were all stamped again with Versamark Ink before being embossed in glittery powder!

I also added a trio of sparkly stars to each card along with a bold accent or two in bright black! Colorful card stock bases and a sweet holiday sentiment finish off these festive cards!

Birthday Card For Mom!

Hi everyone! There is another great color combo challenge on over at the Color Throwdown blog and I used the opportunity to create a birthday card for my dear mom. She loves theses colors, especially purple, so it seemed very fitting!

I have been itching to use my new Concord & 9th 'Hello Lovely' stamp as I have seen it colored beautifully all over social media. Since I love the way Copic markers blend, I used a variety of them in the challenge colors on a white die cut tag. The gorgeous floral image was also stamped on the Hawaiian Shores card stock for the background. 

After the tag was layered over the background, I didn't want to cover up the beautifully colored image so I used vellum for the sentiment strip. This way the images show through, just slightly muted. For shine, I gave the colored images a pretty shimmer using a paintbrush and Stickles 'Diamond' glitter!

The finishing touches were shiny sequins and a lovely vintage button! A  beautiful card for the most important woman in my life! Happy birthday Mom!
