CASE Study #119 -

I call my card sticker fun! All of the background is stickers. As are the sleigh and sentiment. I stamped the reindeer from LOC - Reindeer Waltz in Cherry Cobbler ink and then stamped it again without reinking. I craft cut and added rhinestones. I love the way it turned out! Very CAS!!!

The Paper Players #123 - really neat sketch. I've used some papers from my stash and I even added a faux copper border to my card. I just die cut the border from whisper white cs and then I used Versa Mark ink and completely covered the cs. Then I sprinkled Copper embossing powder all over it. Heated and voila! A beautiful shiny copper border. The snowflakes are brads.

Telescoping Poinsettia

Recently I purchased a few digital images from Elizabeta Kushner's etsy shop. The moment I saw this poinsettia I knew I was going to try the telescoping tecnhique. So using Copics and coloring the image I then used a complete set of Spellbinders' dies to cut the image into peices.  Once the image was colored and cut I started with the largest cut and worked my way out. Maybe I should have started in the middle, because it gets pretty tight for placement working outside in. But I got er' done! When the telescoping was completed I went back and craft cut the bits of petals and leaves that were cut off by the largest die. I then attched them directly to my dsp. I added some yellow Ranger Pearls in the center. This one was done!

With Thanksgiving a little more than 2 1/2 weeks away, I have been making Christmas cards. I just love this SoftPencil Studios image. That little house is fabulous! And who could resist Ratiny hiding behind a little snow bank? I mixed and matched SoftPencil Studios images with my Stampin' Up! dsp, a couple of brads and stickles. It works because SoftPencil Studios images are so versatile.

Visit SoftPencil Studios and get cha some!

FMS60 MORE

 
I have 2 male birthdays coming up early in December and they are father and son. So I decided to use my Stampin' Up! sets : A Cardinal Christmas and Le Jardin Botanique for my image and Beautiful Birthday for my sentiment. I am sooo excited I got my Spellbinders dies to work perfectly together on the windows and my Copic Markers really brought the beauty out in these two beautiful birds!
As you can see the cards are similar but quite different. I used the Freshly Made Sketch #60 to layout my cards. I am not sure they will let me have 2 entries in the drawing this week but once these were made I just had to share them.
 
Visit Freshly Made and check out the challenge for yourselves.
Below is the sketch.

O' Come All Ye Faithful - Love that Christmas carol! It was a toss up for me though as my favorite all time Christmas carol is a version of Oh Happy Day. I guess too in this case We Three Kings would have worked.

This card has been entered into the Crazy4Challenges Blog Challenge this week. This dsp has a faint shimmer to it and it's got a distressed look as well with a faint varied pattern in a grid. I've stamped my image in Staz-On Hunter Green. Then with my Tombow glue I have drawn out lines for my sky and the flourish up top. I sprinked glitter in these areas - flourish is green and sky is blue. My sentiment is computer generated using the font - Pristina. My little glittered star of Bethlehem is punched using the NEW SU punch Pack - Merry Minis #126882.

Now I challenge you to pop on over to the C4C blog and create something using YOUR favorite Christmas carol.

Color Throw Down #217 - Basic Black, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, and Not Quite Navy. Ok can I just start by saying, I LOVE THIS COLOR COMBO!!!

Of course my inks are all Stampin' Up! and exactly the ones requested in the challenge. I brayered Not Quite Navy for my sky and Lucky Limeade for my ground. I stamped the image and sentiment in Basic Black. The stamps are from the Come to Bethlehem set #120591. I punched two pieces of black with the Modern Label Punch #119849. The chipboard is not Stampin' Up! but the stars are Whisper White punched with a discontinued punch.

Flights of Christmas

Flights of Christmas was created to enter into the Paper Take Weekly challenge of anything goes with a bonus challenge to do Christmas. 

For my card I started with some Cajun Craze cs, Letters to Santa dsp, Whisper White cs, Clear Window Sheets, Floral Framelets and Seasonal Sayings Christmas (from the SU Clearance Rack).

First of all, I stacked my card blank ( 4 1/4" x 11"), same color Cajun Craze cs (4" x 5 1/4") and my dsp (4" x 5 1/4") and ran them through my Big Shot with the Floral Framelets die. Making sure I cut through all 3 pieces at once. Then I adhered the dsp to the front of the (4 1/4" x 11") card blank. Then on the inside of the card blank I placed a piece of the Clear Whindow sheet ( 4 1/8" x 4 3/") and adhered it with snail. Then I placed the remaining piece of Cajun Craze cs over it and adhered.

Next I cut a piece of Whisper White cs at 4' x 5 1/4' and adhered it to the inside of my card. Then using one of the cut outs I daubed Calypso Coral ink all around the outside edge of the cut out making a halo. Then I stamped in Handsome Hunter the sentiment.

Next I punched a bunch of little butterflies from Whisper White cs. Using my Champagne Shimmer mist and Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder and Handsome Hunter reinkers in separate spritzer bottles I spritzed my little butterflies. I loved the varying colors. To get some multicolored butterflies I dipped them into other puddles of spritzed colors. Some butterflies are glued inside my card around the sentiment. Some butterflies and stacked and glued onto the outside of the card on the dsp and finally 3 butterflies have hit onto the Clear Window Sheet.

I've lovin' it! How bout you???


Thanks for Looking.
Hope you'll come back again. Please leave your comments. I have a lot of views but not much feedback. Don't forget to checkout the challenge at Paper Take Weekly.
