Thinking of you at Christmas

** 12/8/17 Top 5 at QKR Stampede! **

Hi everyone! It’s a very fine Friday and I hope you’ve had a great week! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #17 – December Anything Goes! Come on over and play with us – we’d love to see what you’re working on!

I created a card using teal and purple – one of my favorite color combos. The front and inside sentiments are stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz ink. OMG… I’m in love with that ink! The ornament tops are die cut from Gold Mirror cardstock. Although this card is slightly different, it’s a CASE of a previous project I made last year. I really loved my original design and these dies are magnificent! If you’re interested, you can see the other project HERE.


Using the DTP method, I inked the die cuts with Island Indigo and Sugarplum ink, then covered them in Versamark and heat embossed them with Judi-Kins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder. The sparkle is gorgeous IRL – wish it showed up in the pics!


I kept the inside simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
