Good Friends Christmas

>> Sunday, December 11, 2016

Good Morning all, well it seams winter has arrived. I hope all is well for everyone that is getting hit by the snow.


For my card today I use the new Pinecone with Bow. I colored the background first then covered the Pinecone with a mask and stamped the Pine Bough. The greeting is the From my house at Christmas that I stamped in brown ink. The edges were cut with a die and I added some sequins and punched branches.


On the inside I used the Friends Every Day Christmas Greeting and the Christmas Light String.

Merry Christmas

Good morning!
I have two bell cards for you today!! I love these bells!!


to make this card along with a snowflake embossing folder and a frame die and stitched circle die by My Favorite Things.  I also used a sketch from Splitcoaststampers.  I used Copic markers Y11, Y15, YR23, YR24 for the bells G21 and YG63 for the holly and YG 67 for the pine. Y15, YG05, R24 for the lights.  Berries are R21, R24 and R29.
I popped up the red frame and popped up the bells.


My second card is Silver Bells (My favorite song).


I used 1070H Holly Jingle Bells  the rest is done with dies and embossing folders.  The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug and the framing dies are from Sue Wilson and MariAnne Designs the border is Spellbinders. 
Copics for bells: C01, C02, C03, C05, C07 and the greenery is the same as first card. 
I built up the layers with foam tape made score lines under the embossing folder panel and use foam tape to pop up the border.  Merry Christmas die is Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I added some pearls to the framing and then used Liquid pearls to the cross sections of the embossing folder design. 
Finally, I added some more Liquid Pearls to the border.

If you already have this year's Christmas cards done, then this is the perfect time to start your collection for next year while you are in the mood for Christmas!!

Have a great week end!!

Christmas Friends

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Well we're getting down to the wire with sending out Christmas cards, so I have a fairly quick and simple one today. Seems I always need a few extra and this late in the season, they really need to be quick. 

I had this piece of white already die cut so I used some Distress inks to sponge in some pink/reds from the upper left and some lime greens from the lower right. The pine bough was stamped a couple of times w/ a combo of the green Memento inks and the greeting was stamped w/ black. I added a narrow pine green layer & instead of using another white layer to use the embossing folder on, I embossed the front of the card. The trick w/ this is, because I only wanted the front embossed, I had to put the card front in upside down in the folder, so it needed to be a pattern that looked good going either direction. Anything else would just look upside down :)

I added a die cut paper bow to finish. Here's a look at the inside. The embossed card front also gives a nice look to the top of the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!





Supplies:
stamps: DRS Designs - Pine Bough, Christmas Everyday,  (inside - From My House)
paper: Staples 110# white
ink: Memento tuxedo black, cottage ivy, northern pine, Distress inks candy apple, fired brick, twisted citron, mowed lawn
accessories: Misti, MFT diagonal stitched rectangles, Sizzix embossing folder (Alpine set 658191), ODBD small bow die

Good Friends and Christmas

Welcome!

I have a fun Christmas card for you today.  I'm normally a more traditional color kind of Christmas girl, but I went a little outside my zone on this card and love how it came out.

This card was actually a 2 nighter.  I stamped and cut out the Holly Jingle Bells and then spent the rest of the evening trying out different color combos on scrap.  I had settled on more traditional colors and figured I'd color it and finish my card the next night.  However, on the second night when I sat down I just wasn't "feeling it" as I was trying to find the right color paper to go with my colored sample.  But the bright pink started calling my name :)





Once I had my colors the rest went pretty fast.  I cut the 4 squares and then framed the pink and green layers with dots from a silver sharpie.  The Friends Everyday Christmas Greeting sentiment was stamped in silver and seeing it looked a bit stark I added the silver dot frame to that as well.  You can't see it in the photo, but I thought the plain folded card was a little plain too, so in keeping with my dot theme, I used my swiss dots embossing folder.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Reindeer Greetings

>> Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Hello Friends, it's Nancy today with a CAS card.  This was the fastest card I have made in a long, long time. 


I plan to make a few more like this one, but I am going to color the super cute Reindeer Ralph image a bit darker.  I am loving the new Christmas Rooftops and From My House at Christmas greeting - they make super fun Christmas cards. 

As the official crazy busy Christmas season has arrived, I am going CAS on all my cards.  I still have a bunch more cards to make - I sure hope you have planned better than me!!!  This weekend it is going to be Christmas Music, Hot Chocolate, Sausage Balls (I am craving them), and some Ink!!!

Hugz,

Nancy





I am going to make a few more of them, but I am going to color the re

Christmas Roof Tops

>> Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Hi Everyone, 

There hasn't been a dull moment around my house for the past few days.  Everything from minor illness, to a pet emergency, to car problems and broken things around the house.  All while having the extra busyness of the holiday season.  Never a dull moment. 

That's why I chose to share my simple, calming cards showcasing the great new holiday stamp, Christmas Rooftops.  With the smoke coming out of those chimneys, I just imagine everyone inside those homes relaxing, reading and sipping hot cocoa :) And not having a care in the world :)

I just stamped and colored the image adding a snowflake border, and used my stamp a ma jig to position the All is Calm Greeting at the bottom.


To jazz it up a bit, I hit all the roof tops with my glitter glue to finish it off.


I love the stamp so much I went ahead and made a second CAS card.  This time I stamped the houses  along the bottom and added some punched hearts to indicate the love flowing from my home to yours :)


And here's a close look at the From My House at Christmas Greeting that was die cut and added with dimensional foam dots.


Here's wishing you peace in your little corner of the world.

Thanks for visiting!

All is Calm, All is Bright

>> Monday, December 5, 2016

Hi Everyone, I have two fairly easy and quick cards to share with you today. Things are getting rather busy around here, so I'm finding quick and easy is best. :-)

My first card features our winged angel, and the Silent Night greeting as well as the new all is Calm greeting. I really like that the fonts match on these greetings so you can use them together. I stamped everything with VersaMark ink onto navy CS and heat embossed with gold embossing powder, then layered it onto gold shimmer CS. Some gold twine was added before attaching everything to the navy card base.



My second card using the same sentiments, but this time they are paired with the large filigree star image using silver embossing powder and some silver CS that is almost mirror like. I apologize for the picture. I could not get a very clear one.



These would be good cards to mass produce, which I might be needing to do. We'll see.  Hope you are further ahead with your Christmas cards than I am. Be sure to check out DRS Designs' online store for all the latest holiday images.

Thanks for stopping by,
