Thinking of you at Christmas

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, an adorable Christmas card for my stash created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Penguin Christmas Box Card cut file.

I have to tell you this… within 10-15 seconds of adhering the gemstones, Molly (one of our cats) jumped up on my desk and chomped down on the tree! So you know what that means – this card will be sent to a family member who won’t mind a little cat spit and teeth marks! Bwahahaha!

This was a fun card to put together. I used a light/dark teal color scheme with a pop of pink on the gifts. I can’t take my eyes off that penguin – he is so stinkin’ cute!

The sentiments on the front and back, from one of my favorite stamp sets, were stamped in black ink.

And here’s one final look at the card flattened and ready to put in an envelope – that’s what’s so fun about box cards! And I know… you’re still trying to find the kitty teeth marks on that tree, aren’t you?! LOL!

Thinking of you at Christmas

Hi everyone! Happy December 1st! A new challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog this morning and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #5 – December Anything Christmas Goes! I created a corner fold card to add to my pile of Christmas cards. I’ve made a couple of these in the past and really love how they turn out!

The cardstock, paper, stamps and inks are all from Stampin’ Up. I used the traditional green and red Christmas colors with a pop of gold. I watercolored the holly leaves and added some shimmer, and used red gemstones for the berries.

I added a scalloped border punched from DSP to the bottom of the front and the bottom of the inside panel for a little interest. Love how this turned out!

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.
