Believe in the Night Before Christmas!

Hello, my friends! 

I truly love the magic of Christmas the Night Before Christmas Suite has everything you need to create a magical Christmas card, gift card, box, gift bag or a little treat container the possibilities are unless.

I created these two cards with the image of the whimsical wisp  of the night before Christmas and Santa dashing through the air.  My first inspiration came from the Macy’s Christmas ad with the gleam of Christmas snowflakes and stars and the BELIEVE, and you know how inspiration goes you start at one place and end at another LOL!

Give Thanks!!! Created with the Wonderful Together Bundle as well as the Harvest Hellos Bundle!

Hello, my friends!

Hoping everyone is well. 

I am truly thankful so many things in my life including family, friends a job and so many opportunities and blessings including being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. 

Today’s card was created using the Gathered Together as well as the Harvest Hellos Bundle. The Harvest Hellos Bundle is so versatile including fall pumpkins, apple, leaf images, can be used for fall, teacher appreciation, inspirational cards including types of cards like the apple of my eye I truly love bundles that have endless possibilities and this is one of them.

Card base: Very Vanilla card stock measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. Old olive card stock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″, additional Very Vanilla card stock measuring 5″ x 3 3/4″. Scrap piece of Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Gold Foil, and Very Vanilla card stocks.

Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies the third to the smallest, I cut two rectangles one of Pumpkin Pie and one of Daffodil Delight card stock.  I stamped the image of the small leaf From the Harvest Hello stamp set using Pumpkin Pie ink. Now stamp the large Maple leaf image from the Gathered Together stamp set onto some Crumb Cake card stock then using the Gathered Leaves Dies cut out the Leaf image, now using the Gold Foil and the Gathered Leaves Dies and then cut out the three smaller leaf images.

On your scrap piece a Very Vanilla using a Pumpkin Pie ink I stamped the pumpkin image from the Harvest Hellos then using the Apple Builder Punch, punch out the pumpkin. using Old Olive ink stamp the leaf and the stem for your pumpkin, also stamp on a scrap piece a Very Vanilla card stock the sentiment “give thanks” using Old Olive ink, using your paper snips cut out your sentiment then glue your sentiment onto the front of your pumpkin. Take your Very Vanilla card stock layer and emboss using the Tin Tile embossing folder then using a sponge dauber sponge a bit of Crumb Cake ink over the top creating a variegated  color onto the embossed layer. 

Assembly: Add your Daffodil Delight stamped Rectangle over your Pumpkin Pie rectangle on an angle then glued the stamped and die-cut leaf images on top of this layer,  glue down your pumpkin on top of the leaves skewed slightly to the right. Now add a few layers of Old Olive Twine around your Very Vanilla embossed layer, adding a bow to the right side then using dimensional add your Stitch Rectangle Layers on top of the Tin Tile Layer. Now glue down your Tin Tile Layer onto your Old Olive Layer, glue all of your layers onto your card base.

The card is now complete I hope you have enjoyed it.

Merry Christmas from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set!

Hello, my friends!

I hope you all are well, I’ve had a very busy week and I’m glad to relax and craft. Christmas is right around the corner can you believe it? Today I created a card with the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set. This is such a beautiful set and again another excuse for me to use my Stampin Blend markers to color, but you could actually use any color medium whichever is your favorite.  I was thinking of Holly and hanging baubles and try to re-create it in a form of a card  and gleaming says it all so what better way to make it sparkle is with a lot or a little, your choice of glitter.

I created today’s card with a card base of Basic Black measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″, a scrap piece for your sentiment. The next layer is Very Vanilla card stock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″. Plus scrap piece big enough to stamp three leaf images

Using Momento ink I stamped along the top of the left edge the Hollyleaf/berry stamp, I then colored them in using Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin Blend markers. Now stamp three additional Holly Leaves onto a scrap piece a Very Vanilla card stock, color them in using the same markers, then cut them out with your paper snips. I then stamped the small and the large baubles onto the Very Vanilla card stock piece, color them in using Mango Melody Stampin Blend Marker Combo. Now using Linen Twine I created a string attached with snail and glue dots to create the image of the Christmas Baubles hanging.

Now on a scrap piece of Basic Black card stock, I stamped the sentiment “Merry Christmas” with Versamark ink and used White embossing powder, heat set using your heat tool, cut it out using your paper snips.

The three Holly Leaf images that have been cut out I crinkled them a bit to give them some texture then glued the berry part and the beginning of the leave onto your Very Vanilla card base in between the images you already have stamped crunching the leaves to give it a little more dimension. Then using dimensionals I added the sentiment over the baubles.

Attach your Very Vanilla Layer onto your card base I then used the fine tip glue pen and added glue over the Holly Berries the Leaves and a slight bit over the baubles then add the Ice Stampin Glitter, to add a little sparkle and frosty Christmas feel.

I hope I’ve inspired you! Thank you for stopping by!
