‘Tis the Season

‘Tis the season for snowflakes and Christmas.  On Thursday something rare happened…it snowed in San Antonio.  We got about 2 inches of snow and for about a day we had a glimpse of a white Christmas.  It was lovely. The snowfall inspired me to create Christmas card based on the color challenge of Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Lemon Twist.

I used these the snowflake dies from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to die cut the snowflakes from Silver Glimmer paper then sponged them with Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Lemon Twist.  The background layer I embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing folder.  I embellished with basic rhinestones, gold satin ribbon and gold sequin trip.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Pines stamp set which I stamped with Black and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for sparkle.

Jingle all the way on a sleigh ride

Inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments and Hallmark Christmas movies I created this card with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Jingle all the Way stamp set.  The Pool Party  layer I embossed with the Gently Falling embossing folder.  I used strips of Whisper White and Vellum to die cut the town, trees and sleigh.

I used Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to accent the hills and roofs.   For the sentiment I used heat stick powder and embellished with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  I also die cut a star from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. To wrap it all up I used 1/8″ silver ribbon and basic rhinestones.

‘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.

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.
