Oval Christmas Notecards

IMG_8658 copy

I’ll soon be putting up the tree, decorating the house, getting my Christmas cards out in the mail, shopping and preparing for Christmas. These cards are getting me in the mood! Today I have two oval cards to share with you that I made with Graphic 45′s Twas The Night Before Christmas designer paper. I’ve used my new Spellbinders Ivy Die-Delights dies, together with Rose Creations (red roses), Create-A-Rose (rose leaves), Pine Sprig (Marianne die) and an evergreen sprig (Martha Stewart punch).

I used the 8 x 8 paper pad for the striped background, I love it! So festive and bright .  .  . it reminds me of my Fitz & Floyd Cookies For Santa Christmas plate. I couldn’t resist adding Diamond Dust to the design, I used it liberally throughout the design, it doesn’t sparkle like glitter, it’s very sugary like bits of rock candy.

I’m off to Chicago this week for some holiday shopping and fun! I’ll be back next week with some parchment designs.

Thank you so much for your visit, until next time .   .   .

Santa Christmas Cards

IMG_8632 copy

Christmas will soon be here, I’m busy finishing up my Christmas cards. I have a couple more to show you in few days. Graphic 45′s Twas The Night Before Christmas papers go a long way . . . . I’ve made multiple cards, note cards, etc. and still have plenty left. This card features Spellbinders new Ivy Die-Delights dies. I’ve placed a branch below the bow and several leaves above the poinsettias. I love this new die set, I can place as many or as little leaves that I want on the two branches that come with the set, or I can use the leaves alone, without attaching them to branches as I did above the poinsettias.

I adhered mint colored Kaiser rhinestones to the centers of the poinsettias. I brayered Forest Moss Distress Ink onto the pine branches to darken them for contrast with the ivy leaves. I love gold for the holidays, I added a small gold bow and edged around all the layers with an 18Kt. Gold Krylon pen.

The leaves of the ivy die set taper down to a very small size, very realistic in appearance! I used a Copic marker (Lipstick Red) to color the mint rhinestones and sprinkled a few on the Santa layer of DP.

The card base is made with Core-dinations pastels, the striped layer is from the 6 x 6 pad and the layer with Santa is from the 8 x 8 pad of Twas The Night Before Christmas DP.

I think I like the red striped paper the best, it reminds me of candy canes.

Little Boy Blue

IMG_8657 copy

I’ve made a baby boy card to match the baby girl card I posted a few weeks ago. Graphic 45 brought back its first set of papers for a limited time only, Baby 2 Bride is one I missed and I’m so happy Graphic 45 brought it back in a collector’s edition pack! Aren’t these dies adorable! They are so perfect for these papers. You can find them at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, they are dies from Marianne’s collection.

I decided to keep it simple and not put any flowers on the card, the button adornments and bow are perfect for the design. I placed a safety pin with a sweet little rocking horse charm through the cream seam binding bow. The safety pin is the color of the buttons, but appears pink in the photographs :-(. I used the Bow Easy Original to make the triple looped bow. Links are provided at the bottom of this post for products used.

The blue and cream stripe layer is on foam tabs, as are the bib and shoes. I wove 1/8″ silk cream ribbon through the holes in the shoes to create the shoe laces. I love these precious papers, so perfect for these adorable dies! It was really hard for me to not put flowers on this card . . . . LOL!

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit today, I want to extend Happy Thanksgiving wishes to you and your family. I’ll be back soon, until next time .  .  .
