Festival of Trees CPC41 Christmas Card


I hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday! I've been so busy this month, I wasn't sure if I'd get to make a card using this month's Creating Pretty Cards Sketch #41 over at Craft Project Central. This month's sketch was designed by Michelle Wecksler. The sketch it CPC41. I always have fun playing along.

If you play along, you could win a free month Craft Project Central subscription of your choice. For every 10 cards submitted, there will be a drawing for a winner. Submissions made by CPC designers count towards the 10, but our names won't be put in the drawing. You'll need to hurry, though!  This sketch ends next Sunday, November 30!

This card isn't my usual style, but I think it turned out pretty good. I used the Hexagon Punch to make the notches in the bottom of the banners. The letters were die-cut with the wonderful Little Letters Thinlits dies. I tied the little bows using the Gold 1/8" Ribbon, and attached them with Glue Dots. If you look closely, you can see that the Whisper White layer was embossed with the Northern Flurry Impressions folder. The star was punched out with the star punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack from Champagne Glimmer Paper. I attached it to the top of the tree with a Glue Dot, and then attached the tree to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

CPC Triangle Shaped Lantern & Greeting Card


Here's another great Craft Project Central project! This beautiful Christmas project was designed by Monika Davis, and you can see more of her creations on her blog, M.A.D. Stamper.

Make this triangle shaped lantern and learn how easy it is to make your own template. Switch out the vellum for cardstock and turn it into a gift box for teachers, friends, and neighbors or fill it with some treats as a party favor. Either way, it would also look great as a party or holiday table decoration. You can also make it in different sizes. Learn how to make your own heat embossed design, using a mask. Great for class projects, stamp clubs and or camps.

Gentle Peace Christmas Card


I have another Christmas card for you. This one was made with the new photopolymer stamp set, Gentle Peace. I CASEd this one from LeeAnn Greff.

I stamped the stained glass image with VersaMark ink onto White Vellum Cardstock, and then heat embossed it with Silver Emboss Powder. I then turn the piece over, and colored it in using the following Stampin' Write Marker, Lost Lagoon, Coastal Cabana, Sahara Sand, Crushed Curry, Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, & Soft Sky Markers. The skin areas were colored in the the Natural Marker in the Skin Tone Blendabilities Set. Once it was colored, I cut it out freehand with Paper Snips.

With the heat embossing back on top, I attached it with Fast Fuse Adhesive to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock that was embossed with the Filigree Frame Embossing Folder. 

I LOVE how the Fast Fuse Adhesive works with vellum. It doesn't show at all through the uncolored sections, so there's no need to only put adhesive on the colored sections! It's wonderful!

White Christmas Deer


This is the first card I've made with the White Christmas stamp set. I know I'll be making a lot more!  I really love this set. I CASEd this one from another card I saw on Pinterest, and it's made by Julie Kettlewell. The only thing I changed was to use a knot in the ribbon, instead of a bow, and added the deer. There are so many cute winter scenes that can be made with this set, and I can't wait to make more!

All of the stamping was done with the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. The snow on the trees and the snow falling in the sky were made using my Signo uni-ball White Gel Pen. I watercolored the deer and the trees with a blender pen and Chocolate Chip ink. The snow on the ground was done by sponging Whisper White Craft ink onto the cardstock.

I also sponged the edges of the winter scene Crumb Cake layer and the greeting oval with Crumb Cake ink. The little snowflakes on the oval are from the Frosted Sequins pack, and glued on with Mulipurpose Glue. I also attached the oval onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Festival of Trees Vintage Christmas Card


I got so busy, I almost forgot to post the Christmas card I promised yesterday. I really like this one. I CASEd it from one I saw in Pinterest made by Mary Ellen Byer. It's not on her SU! website, but you can see my pin of it HERE.

I used darker colors on mine, and also punched out two of the trees and attached them onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I sponged the punched trees with Mossy Meadow ink and the other ivory pieces with Baked Brown Sugar ink.  I really like how it turned out.  The list of supplies I used on this card is below.
