Merry and Bright

Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope you had a great weekend.  I had a wonderful Saturday crafting my friends and celebrating Christmas with them.

Today I have a card to share with you which was fun to create.

I first stamped the trees in green ink on the piece of white cardstock.  I then stamped the light bulb ends with grey ink on a scrap piece of paper and fussy cut them out.
I then added some gold star brads to the top of the trees and some red gems as ornaments for the trees.
I matted this on a piece of pattern paper  and then on a piece of red cardstock for the card base.
I finished the card by addng the sentiment with black ink and adding a white thread bow.

All supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey except the pattern paper which is from Echo Park and the gold star brads and red gems, which were from my stash.

Colored Lights or White Lights?

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a card to ask the question, do you use colored lights or white lights on your tree?

I prefer the white lights because they seem so bright and sparkly.  What about you?

The card base is created with layers of cardstock and then I stamped the tree on the left side and the right side.  I then stamped the same tree on a different piece of Cardstock and detail cut the tree out.
I adhered the tree to the card with foam squares.
I then used rainbow drops from Fun Stampers Journey to the different areas of the tree.
To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment and then cut the ends into banner cuts and adhered it to the card.

Christmas Trees

Hello Crafty Friends,

Christmas can not be celebrated without a Christmas tree.  I know some people have small trees or large trees.  Some have fake trees and real trees.  Whatever your preference,  I think Christmas trees are beautiful in all different colors and covered with snow.

Today's card is all about the tree.

I stamped the trees with three different colors of green ink onto the circle.   The lightest color on the circle, then a little bit darker on the one I adhered onto the circle.  The darkest color on adhered with foam squares on the top.

I stamped the sentiment with black ink and green ink.

To finish the card I added a few pearls to the card.

Let it Snow Snowman

Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope your new month is going well.   I am so glad it is December.  December is my favorite month with all the celebrating, colors, lights and smells.

I already have our tree up and the theme is always snowmen.

Today's card is one of my favorites this year.

I started by creating the snowflake background on the top half.  I then stamped the words three times towards the bottom.
The snowman is from Spellbinders and was fun to die cut and piece together. 
I added a chevron border from cardstock and then a strip of silver scalloped washi tape.

All supplies are from Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey.

Love to Craft Challenge for December

Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Love to Craft Challenge Blog and the theme is Anything Goes.  With it being the first day of December, I knew I wanted to share a Christmas Card.

I bought the card base die from a friend recently who was destashing.  I love unique card bases, so I knew I needed this die in my life.
The die is from Sizzix.  I paired the die set with a favorite stamp set from Lawn Fawn and I have a card which was a hit at my classes.
Ink and Cardstock are all from Fun Stampers Journey.

Come join the challenge with anything you are working on right now.

Merry Christmas Scene

Hello Crafty Friends,

It is the Christmas season.  My favorite time of the year.

I have a card to share with you that I taught at my card classes in November.

I based the card on a card that Fun Stampers Journey shared last year.  I love the Build a Winter Scene, so I knew I had to make this card.

All supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey except for the Pattern Paper on the bottom, which is from Echo Park.

Doodlebug Turkey

Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope you are getting excited for Thanksgiving.  I always look forward to the food and fellowship.  We are hosting this year, so I had to create something as our center piece.

I love Doodlebug paper and knew I had to use it on this turkey.  I hand cut each of the pieces.  I then inked the edges to hide any imperfections.

I also inked the face area to darken the head a little bit.

Here he is standing up.

I think the colors are more realistic in this last picture.
I purchased the wooden turkey from JoAnn's and covered with Doodlebug Designs Pattern Paper.

Happy Thanksgiving.
