Heartache at Christmas

>> Friday, December 15, 2017


10 days and counting to the big day!

If you know someone who suffered a loss this year, DRS has come out with the perfect sentiment to let them know you're thinking of them this holiday season.

I started my card by stamping our Giant Poinsettia on grey card stock using a medium grey ink.  I used watercolor pencils and a Tombo blender pen to color them.  For the sentiment layer, I used our Poinsettia Vine Corner that I had previously cut apart, (leaving me with the poinsettia and the longer holly vine).  I stamped the poinsettia in the center with the vine going to the right and then masked just the left half of the poinsettia and turned the stamp upside down to stamp the left side of the vine.  Once that was done I stamped our Heartache at Christmas above it using black ink, colored the vine with the same pencils/blender that I used for the background, layered it on green, sponged the edges with grey ink and attached it to my card.

Thanks for stopping by!


Just a Bit Flakey

>> Thursday, December 14, 2017

Good morning!

Today my first card is made with the new release Flakey Friends 
and an older favorites Snowman Bird Buddies 232H.
I used heart dies by HFC and Label die by Taylored Expressions.
I used an embossing folder for the background squares.
There is a little bit of Liquid Applique on the hat of the bird for fur.

This next card combines two stamps with holly, berries and pine boughs
I fussy cut quite a bit of it to bring them together just right and to let the holly hang over the frame (by MFTs).  There is silver mirror paper inside the red frame and also inside the green frame. 
I used red rhinestones and green rhinestones for embellishments.

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you've found 
something here to inspire you!!
Go have fun.


Snowy Christmas Scene

>> Wednesday, December 13, 2017

I have been kicking around ideas for this Tim Holtz Snowglobe Die set.  I tried using the little houses, but they were so detailed for me.  I saw THIS cute card at Splitcoaststampers done by Becky, and got the idea to just use the mountains.  That gave me lots of room to use the Say Hello At Christmas Greeting.  I punched out the lines individually and made them a part of the snowglobe along with some Snowtex and SU! Christmas confetti.  The background is watercolored with some colored pencil swirls and the base panel has some faux sewing.  

We rarely have snow in Central Alabama, but this past week we got enough to build snowmen and have to scrape our cars.  It was like being in a snowglobe!
Hope your week is going well.

Hi Everyone,

I love the traditional red and green color combo for cards this time of year, don't you?  I always think those two colors together scream Christmas time is here :)

So, with that in mind I stamped and colored up a little winter scene using some of the winter village stamps.  I die cut and matted it, adding some glitter glue and the greeting right in the scene too.

The background paper was made using two different background stamps and red and green ink.  The line of background stamps here at DRS Designs make it so easy to make custom paper in a jiffy!  

To finish off the card, I added the word Noel to a strip of paper with a punched border.

Here is a list of stamps used for this make:

Stop by DRS Designs soon...There's a special on their stained glass stamps!
Happy Stamping!


Thnking of You

My card today features part of the new Heartache at Christmas greeting. I paired it with the poinsettia image which was stamped onto white CS, colored with Copics and die cut with a MFT square die. I stamped the Poinsettia image once more and colored only parts of it, fussy cut and popped it up on the original image. The large pink panel was embossed with a Darice folder and layered onto green CS. The greeting was stamped with Archival Jet black ink onto the same green CS, die cut and added under the poinsettia. Some pink gem stones were added to the banner. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the poinsettia petals and some clear Nuvo drops were added to the flower center.

Thanks for stopping by today,


In the Meadow...

I created this card for last week's Winter Wonderland Challenge at Love to Scrap. DRS Designs sponsored this challenge and since it was a Winter Wonderland theme I had to play along and created a snowman scene. Here's my card.

First I stamped the snowflake background image with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white EP and then sponged on distress oxide inks for the sky. I used a Fawn Lawn die to create my snow bank and stamped my greeting with Archival Jet Black ink. The snowman was die cut using a SB die of the month set. Isn't he the cutest?! I think I'll make a few more of these. I really like the way this turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
