‘Tis the Season to Sparkle with Seasonal Layers

My card this week has been inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments  sketch challenge and all the Christmas movies I’ve been watching on the Hallmark channel.  Every year as part of preparing for the holidays I watch Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel.  All the movies seem to start with a beautiful snowy setting which made me think snowflakes which made me think the snowflakes from the Seasonal  Layers Thinlits Dies.  This die set is so versatile because it has images for every season.  It contains three different snowflakes which I die cut from Whisper White, Silver Foil paper and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  I used Smoky Slate for the background layer and embossed the Whisper White layer with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder then added the 1/8″ silver ribbon in a swirl pattern using glue dots.  I then adhered the snowflakes to create my snowy scene.  The sentiment ‘Tis the Season to Sparkle’ is from the Season to Sparkle stamp set which I die cut from retired Scallop Oval Punch.

For more sparkle I added rhinestones and silver sequins.Stampin Up Seasonal Layers Snowflake Christmas cardGo to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see more inspiration from the design team.

Lovely as a Tree for Christmas

My card is based on this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments which is an inspiration challenge. The challenge inspired me to use the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the Woodlands Embossing folder to create a white Christmas card.

After embossing the white layer with the Woodland Embossing folder I colored the tree trunks with Gold Wink of Stella Glitter pen.  On another layer I stamped the trees with Chocolate Chip ink then traced the branches of the trees with the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter pen to make them sparkle then embellished with the Cherry Cobbler ribbon.

The inside of the card I stamped with silver Encore ink with stamps from the Christmas Pines set.

Festive Poinsettia Flower is Joy of the Season

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge inspired my Christmas poinsettia card this week.  My card base is Whisper White.  The diagonal stripe DSP is from the Candy Cane Lane paper assortment.  Love this paper!  The Garden Green layer was embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I used a strip of Gold Satin ribbon.  After stamping the leaves and the petals of the poinsettia I traced the veins with clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.   After assembling the flower I put a gold doily behind it and used dimensionals to adhere to the Garden Green layer.  I embellished the Gold Satin Ribbon with small pearls.  I also used gold sequins and pearls to embellish the card.  I gold embossed the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set on the Whisper White banner.

Cozy Christmas Card

My card this week is inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I love the stamp set Cozy Christmas and the coordinating DSP Home for Christmas.  Together these make cute cards.

My card is CASED from the sample on page 8 of the 2015 Holiday Catalog and the sketch on HSS.

The card base is Mint Macaron, the DSP layer 4″ w x 5-1/4″ h, the Very Vanilla layer size 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″, the Pool Party layer size 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″, the DSP banner 4″ w x 1/2″ h, Mossy Meadow layer size 4-1/4″ w x 1/2″ h.  The cute deer is fussy cut from the Home Christmas DSP.  Super cute and easy card to create.

Merry and Bright Ornament Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.  Using the Ornament framelits and coordinating stamp set brought my card together so fast.  Love it!  To make the ornaments sparkly I embossed them with Iridescent Ice and embellished with rhinestones.  The colors I used for my ornaments are from this year’s In-Colors – Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit.  I know they don’t sound like Christmas colors but I think they’re wonderfully bright and perfect for Christmas.
