Masculine Chrstmas Card

I wanted to make a Christmas card that had a more masculine feel.  So, I pulled out my shirt template and used the plaid pattern from the Christmas Around the World DSP to make a shirt.

  • Cherry Cobbler 4 1/4 by5 1/2  - card base
  • Whisper White 4 by 5 1/4" embossed with the Holly embossing folder - base layer
  • Whisper White 3 by 3" embossed with the Holly embossing folder- art piece
  • Cherry Cobbler 3 1/4 by 3 1/4" - mat for art piece
  • Whisper White - for sentiment which is stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink
  • Cherry Cobbler - for mat for sentiment
  • Shirt - DSP - start with a 4 by 6" piece.  The tie is a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock tapered at the end.  A smaller piece of card stock is wrapped around the top.  A small rhinestone is applied to the tie.
  • Art piece and sentiment added to front with dimensionals.

There's a Feeling of Christmas

What a beautiful day today- after that blast of wind and rain we experienced on Sunday.  For the first time in a long time we lost power - and believe it or not I continued to make cards with candle light.  Anal or what???

 I started this card when the lights were out, and finished it with the lights on.

I stamped the image of the wreath in Garden Green ink and then stamped over it with Crumb Cake ink (second generation).  I stamped some berries randomly on the wreath with Cherry Cobbler ink, then coloured in the leaves with a Garden Green marker.  The ribbon was coloured with a Cherry Cobbler marker, after which I added glitter to the berries and the ribbon.

In the center I stamped and embossed a sentiment.

The art piece was matted with Garden Green card stock.  Behind that I added a panel of Red Glimmer paper.  Before adding this to the card front I added a gold metallic snowflake.

The card base is Basic Black card stock, layered with Christmas Around the World DSP.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Feeling of Christmas
Inks:  Versa Mark, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Markers (Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green), Crumb Cake
Papers:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Garden Green, Red glimmer paper, Christmas Around the World DSP
Accessories:  Gold Metallic Snowflake, Cherry Cobbler glitter, Pearls coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend

Thinking of You with Count Your Blessings - Try Stampin or Not on Tuesday #344

This week's theme with the sketch challenge with Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday #344 is "Autumn".  Autumn cards make wonderful Sympathy or Thinking of You cards so for this sketch challenge I made a "Thinking of You" card.

The sketch this week is by Kaylin.

The Chocolate Chip card stock base is layered with a Very Vanilla layer with stamped images covering it.  The edges are also sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

Near the bottom I added a strip of  Painted Autumn DSP that has images  of acorns all over it - fitting in very nicely with the images on my art piece.

On top of that is an angled piece of the reverse side of the DSP, and the two art piece panels are added to that.

Inside the art piece panels I separated the image of the acorn from "Count Your Blessings" and coloured them with the new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. To add some glitter I added Clear Wink of Stella to the images.

All edges are sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

The sentiment is from "Basket of Wishes", stamped in Chocolate Ink and added to the card front with dimensionals.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Count Your Blessings, Basket of Wishes
Inks:  Black Memento, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Stampin' Blends (Old Olive, Crumb Cake)
Papers:  Chocolate chip, Very Vanilla, Painted Autumn DSP
Accessories:  Dimensionals, Clear Wink of Stella.
