I went CAS with this card and also made my very first Christmas card for this year, (getting a head start!)
Happy 2022 - Welcome, I hope you are enjoying the New Year so far. It's been a "snowy" one for our area (much to my dismay) but so far I haven't been depressed about it.
So today I'm sharing a couple of cards that I just did not have the time to post before Christmas arrived.
Card Base was, Mossy Meadow layered with Cherry Cobble and a piece of designer paper that I have no clue where it came from. I also added a small strip of pear pizzazz. The Santa was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and fussy cut. The sentiment was stamped with Mossy Meadow ink and mounted with circle dies. I added some green sequins to the card as well and some clear sparkly glitter to Santa. (hard to see in the photo but it was very sparkly).
Hope you aren't tired of this color combo as the last 2 cards I've posted have been done using it.
For this card used the sentiment from: Star Studded Season.
Card Base: Basic Black, Second layer blue card stock from paper studio, designer paper from paper studio, brushed silver cs *retired su, Whisper White. Edited to add that the star is white cs with silver glitter in it.
Swiss Embossing Folder, Star Dies, Memento Tuxedo black ink and a blue gem. Foam mounting tape.
For my second card I went again with the colors of the inspiration board and did a religious card. My mom always sent out cards celebrating the birth of Christ at Christmas time so again this one is a reminder of her faith to me.
I stamped the Nativity (Inkadinkado - O Holy Night) with Night of Navy ink on Basic White cs. Then I added a tiny touch of glitter around the halo of baby Jesus. I layered that onto a circle of the same blue card stock. The sentiment is from: SU - For Unto Us stamp set and I stamped it on white cs with Memento Tuxedo black ink.
I embossed the star, also from the For Unto Us stamp set on black card stock with Silver embossing powder and fussy cut it out. Then mounted it with foam tape and added a light blue gem to the center of the star.
I really like how this one turned out.
Navy, Gold & White.
Here is my CAS card for this challenge:
Card Base: Night of Navy - SU The next layer is Brushed Gold card stock -*retired SU.
I stamped the angel with Versamark ink on Basic White cs and used Gold Glory *retired SU embossing Powder. The star and swirl were also gold embossed. - I used a water brush and the Navy ink pad to loosely water color around the angel. Then took the Navy marker and spritzed some blue ink onto the image.
The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy ink.
I distressed the edges of the Navy Strip of paper and around the angel.
To finish the card I added 3 Navy brads (something that use to be very popular on cards)
The gold panel and the angel panel were mounted with foam tape to give it a big more dimension.
Hello & Welcome!
Today I'm joining in on the current Paper Players Color Challenge #567
Here is the color scheme: Grey, White, Black & Silver. - A really neat combo.
I decided to make a Christmas card using these colors. I know it seems weird for a holiday card but I assure you it works. Be sure to check out the Design Teams cards as well as there are several Christmas/Winter themed cards using these colors. - It was hard to photograph this but the silver is shimmery. I really miss this card stock that SU use to carry in both gold, silver and white.
I added a strip of black,grey & silver designer paper a punched border of snowflakes in brushed silver card stock. The I punched out my cardinal with brushed silver card stock, the poinsettia in black and white cs, the holly leaves in silver, the berries in white. I glued the cardinal down on Basic White cs, added the poinsettia piece which I mounted with foam tape. I also used some white/silver cording and a touch of glitter to the center of the flower.
Sentiment Stamp is from SU (Peaceful Wishes)*retired.
Bird and Poinsettia Dies are from Momenta
Background Stamp Momenta
Circle Die - Spellbinders
Thanks for stopping by.
Today I'm sharing a card that I created for the Mod Squad Pretty Poinsettia Challenge & also NBUS#32 - Click on the links to be taken to the challenge.
My card base is Real Red. I cut out the poinsettia panel die on Basic White Card Stock and again on a patterned piece of SU designer paper (Heartwarming Hugs). I glued the white panel down on the card base and then took the punched out pieces of patterned paper and glued them into the open slots left from punching out the white poinsettia from the panel (I saved those for another project).
Next I used Winter White Embossing Powder (SU) and stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment (SU - For Unto Us) with versamark ink on real red card stock before adding the embossing powder and heat set it. I punched out the Poinsettia flower with basic white card stock, layered them together and added a red sequin to the middle of the flower. Then I used foam mounting tape to raise it up.
That's it...I really like how this one turned out.
Below is my card for the challenge. I made a CAS card for this challenge which is something I rarely do as I find them a bit out of my comfort zone. I always keep thinking they need something more.
Card Base: Mossy Meadow, Next Layer Old Olive which I embossed with a leaf embossing folder (Paper Studio) but used the debossed side. I had a scrap of plaid designer paper used from a Christmas card on my desk so I added that strip and then I had a punched leaf border (EK Success) out of More Mustard*retired SU that I then stamped with Versamark ink using a *retired SU background stamp (Sanded). I layered that over the plaid piece. Finally I had a sentiment stamp from the Autumn Blessing stamp set that I purchased with a magazine at JoAnns already stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used rectangle dies (Spellbinders) to cut it out and mounted in onto another piece of Mossy Meadow then used foam tape to raise it up. Voila, all done.
So do you think it could have used anything else? I debated about adding some gems or sequins but in the end felt it looked just fine without them.
