Christmas Cards 2019-Sept-15

Good Sunday everybody,

It's been close to two months since I've made a Christmas card.  But today I have two to add to my stash.

First up, I have a Scandinavian style card.  I used KaiserCraft DIY cut Knit Borders on white card stock, and layered the die cut pieces onto red card panel.  The sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Inside Holiday Greetings is white heat embossed.  I die cut another border in red to decorate the envelope.

My second card I titled Christmas Cake!!  I stamped one of the cakes images from Alternew Cake Love set in Jet Black and watercolored.  The die cut decoration on the cake comes from the negatives piece I saved from making the first card.  :)  To ground my cake, I created with a 'table top' with Alternew Frilly Frame.  The sentiment I put together using various stamp set.  Oh how I wish I have a stamp set that says that!!

I also spritzed some Perfect Pearl solution in the background to add a bit of interest.

A Different Fall Color Palette

Hi, welcome back!

 Whenever we talk about Fall Colors I usually automatically think of the falling leaves and their tremendous colors, the yellows, the oranges, and the reds.  But this year I am also quite intrigued by the purple and green combination from this Fall harvest vegetable.

Here's my project inspired by the colors.

For embossed background, I took some white embossing paste and added a few drops of Glimmer Metallic Gold Ink and some Perfect Pearl powder and mix together to create a unique color embossing paste.  I stencilled using Simon Says Stamp Mesh Stencil.

While that dries, I stamped the largest image from the Simon Says Stamp Earth Has Music with Jet Black Archival Ink on multi media paper, and watercolored.  I coated the green flower portion with some twinkling watercolor for some shine.

"HBD" is stamped using Seedless Preserves and hand cut along with the feather image.  Once my background panel is completely dry I adhered it to a purple card base, then used foam adhesive to glue the handcut pieces on top.

Collecting Happy Moments

Hi everyone,

Today I have a scrapbook layout to share.

I followed the sketch from Altenew Sketch Challenge #16 quite closely but flipped it 90 degrees to the left.  

Since this page is all about travelling, I tried very hard to stay away from floral images, but a few flowers still got onto the page!!  LOL  To my own defence, they look starfish, so still related in some sense.  :D

This is the title page for a travelling album, so in place of photos, I die cut the title and add an itinerary image.   This sheet of paper from the Altenew Reflection Collection Paper & Sticker Sheet Bundle is really pretty and I don't have any cardstock that matches it, so I used the negative space of the alpha die cut to let the color comes thru.


I added glaze on the mini instant camera, and used coloring pencil to add shadows (the camera is stamped on pattern paper from the same bundle and handcut).

I used the outline of a sticker to create an extra frame (stick onto white card stock, stamped the sentiment in the middle, and handcut).

I used a little tag to adorn the luggage sticker handle.
