I would start with a hearty Good Morning Sunshine! but I haven’t seen the sun in a few days. That’s OK, hopefully Mother Nature is saving it up for next week’s marathon…yeah, it is next week. But who’s counting (besides me, and I’ve had the big scary date embedded in my head since January!)
Anyhoo, I have a card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today, and I’ll share it here too. Go there to see a few close-ups.
I used stamps from A Jillian Vance Design – this is not a guest post, but they sent me so many cool stamps to use, I have not had time to get to them all.
This card was inspired by the workshop I took over the weekend. I don’t take many classes, but did spend the weekend at Craft Fancy with the super awesome Wendy Vecchi! I had the chance to remember some techniques, and then to update those with new ideas and new products. Wow, so inspiring and fun!
So the watercolor paper was inked with Distress Ink and spritzed with water. The swirly tree stamp was heat embossed, and the 3D Foam Star was covered with glitter. I assembled the pieces with 3D Foam Squares. And you know I love photo corners!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Sharing 2 cards today that I made for a Christmas card swap.
I made the cards with Spellbinders™ die templates, the cone is Nested Lacey Pennants, the flower is Layered Poinsettia, and the tags are from Fancy Tags One and Grommet Tags. I used a variety of papers, it was a great opportunity to dig deep into my stash and find some patterned I wouldn’t have otherwise used. I should do this more often it’s like shopping without spending money!
I sprayed the reds with Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist to unify the tones and give the flowers a bit of sparkle. The stamp Joyeux Noel is from JustRite Stampers. The Nested Lacey Pennants have the lacey part folded in, and I curled the entire piece in my hands to make them seem more rounded. I applied SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Crafty Foam Tape to the center of the cone, and E-Z Squares® to the lacey edges. 3D Foam Squares hold the tags in place.
I’m off to do more Christmas shopping! I have both trees up, but only the vintage tree has been decorated. It’s hard to pin down a time when everyone is home and awake at the same time to decorate and take pictures!
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
Welcome everyone! I’m getting ready for the holidays!
I made these gift bag toppers over the weekend. They’re fun, festive and quick to make with JustRite® Stampers and Spellbinders™ dies!
I stamped with the JustRite Stampers sets and heat embossed the designs. I used gel pens to color inside some of the lines to add a pop of color. The center of the stamp allows room to stamp a greeting or write a name.
Once the ink was dry I die cut and embossed the images with Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornament and 2011 Heirloom Ornament dies. I attached the ornament shapes onto clothes pins with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Crafty Power Tape. Tie ribbon above the ornament, add a spot of bling and they’re done! Just clip to a gift bag!
