Season’s Greetings

That flood of holiday cards I mentioned in my last post? Yeah, it will be more of a trickle. I am slow on the editing and uploading but have lots of cards to show you.

This card was made with mostly Stampin’ Up! products, including this gorgeous flocked vellum. The tag I printed with my home printer and foiled it in red using the Minc machine (the photo makes the red foil look black sadly).

Warm Wishes

Check out this adorable holiday card! I couldn’t decide on a sentiment placement for the front so I stamped “Sending Warm Wishes for a Happy Holiday Season” on the inside. This stamp is found with the Lawn Fawn “Merry Messages” set. The snow was made using the Stitched Hillside border dies from Lawn Fawn, which … Continue reading “Warm Wishes”

Check out this adorable holiday card! I couldn’t decide on a sentiment placement for the front so I stamped “Sending Warm Wishes for a Happy Holiday Season” on the inside. This stamp is found with the Lawn Fawn “Merry Messages” set.

The snow was made using the Stitched Hillside border dies from Lawn Fawn, which I coated in Nuvo Glimmer Paste to make them glittery without the mess of actual glitter. This paste dries fast and it doesn’t rub off once dry. It comes in many different colors but this one (Moonstone) is a definite favorite.

The snowy sky background was made using distress oxides and a little bit of white paint. I’m going to try to make a video tutorial on this technique soon so check back for that (it is so easy!).

Everything else is from the Lawn Fawn set “Winter Skies”, just released last week! I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out the bears and the trees and I heat embossed the Santa/reindeers in the sky.

 

Snowy Forest

A large background can make a quick and easy card. This card features Brutus Monroe’s “Forest Background” stamp. It was colored with Copic markers and accented using Gelly Roll Pens and Stickles glitter in “Frosted Lace”*. The “may your days” sentiment is from Lawn Fawn, as is the banner die cut it is stamped on. … Continue reading “Snowy Forest”

The “may your days” sentiment is from Lawn Fawn, as is the banner die cut it is stamped on. The “Merry & Bright” are dies by Xcut. Everything was trimmed and matted on Craft Perfect ‘Mirror Card’ in satin finish scarlett organza (what a mouthful!). Finished size: 5.5″x5.5″ square.

*Next time I make this card I plan to try using white acrylic paint or Snow-Tex to add the snow details to the tree. The Stickles did what I wanted but it is a little more glittery then I intended.
