Stampin Up Holiday Decorations Framelits

I have for you today my third card that I made using the Alcohol Ink Baubles Technique.  I made the card using the Stampin Up Holiday Decorations Framelits.  I created the Christmas ornament by applying reds and greens alcohol ink onto a piece of Yupo paper.  I love the effect that is achieved through this process.

I created this card in response to the Splitcoaststampers.com Falliday Fest Tutorial #1 – Alcohol Ink Baubles.

Heartfelt Creations Winter’s Eve Card

Heartfelt Creations Winter’s Eve Card

Hello!  Today I am sharing my Heartfelt Creations Winter’s Eve Card  that I made for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com.  The hostess of the challenge wanted to “See the Light”.  The impetus for her challenge was related to the days getting shorter and having less light each day.  Therefore, my Heartfelt Creations Winter’s Eve Card shows much light from a window.

I used several of the products in this collection to create the card.   I used the Window Frame Stamp Set and Window Frame Dies to create the window.   The gorgeous designer paper I used is from the Heartfelt Creations Winter’s Eve Collection paper pad. The paper pad includes so many gorgeous designs.

Here are additional photos of my card:

Enjoy!!

Luke 23:44-46

“It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining.  And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.  Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”  When he had said this, he breathed his last.

CottageCutz Jolly Snowman Heads Up

COTTAGECUTZ JOLLY SNOWMAN HEADS UP

Welcome!!  I have a card share for you today that should bring laughter for you!  My card is a CottageCutz Jolly Snowman Heads Up card.  This week on Splitcoaststampers.com, there is a Clean and Simple Challenge that is titled, “Head in the Clouds”.  The challenge hostess wanted to see creations around this theme.  I decided to take the challenge literally.  So my card features the CottageCutz Jolly Snowman with his head in the clouds attached by black thread to the snowman’s arm.  I thought a “Heads Up” sentiment would be appropriate.

I wanted a cloudy background for a snowy scene, thus I cut some card stock in scallops of various sizes and used that as a cloud template.  Using the template, I sponged on some blue Hero Arts Distress Oxide inks and spritzed the clouds with water to get the appearance of it snowing.

Subsequently, I cut some snowbanks, covered them with sparkly crystal granules, and attached them to the card base.

Enjoy the card, and let me know if it made you laugh!

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”

 

Guneaux Designs Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Cardinal

Have you seen the Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly designer paper?  It is so gorgeous!  It is featured on this Guneaux Designs Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Cardinal card.

The Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection designer paper features cardinals, deer, snowflakes, poinsettias, wagon wheels, fence, holly, and much more.  If you want to get an early start on making Christmas cards for 2017, this beautiful paper is great to use and it won’t disappoint you!

To create this card, I cut a 6″ x 12″ piece of Stampin’ Up! (SU) Cherry Cobbler card stock and scored it at the 3″ and 6″ measurements to form my card base.  I used one of the 12″ x 12″ pieces of Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection designer paper and cut it into sections that fit onto the card base.

The second and third panel eventually will include a personal message for the recipient of the card.  The beautiful cardinal on the first panel is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal stamp set.  This cardinal goes perfectly with the Healtfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection Designer Paper as it features lots of cardinals.  I stamped the cardinal onto a circular piece of Neenah Solar White Card Stock with SU Rose Red and Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I added some pine needles, holly, and crystal clear glitter.  I used the  Heartfelt Creations Festive Holiday Die to cut two SU Wild Wasabi lacy die cuts, which I glued together.  I attached the cardinal piece to this and then to the front panel of the card.  I also added crystal glitter onto the lacy die cuts.

I submitted this card to the Splitcoaststampers.com Color Challenge to use SU Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, and Garden Green colors on a card, and a Free For All Challenge to create a “Winter in July” card.

To provide you with an idea about the designs on the Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection paper, the following are photos of it.

Glue Stick Resist Technique

GLUE STICK RESIST TECHNIQUE

Another day and another card share!!  Hello, my friends.  Today’s card share features two items: the Glue Stick Resist Technique, and the ODBD Snowflake Sky Die.

I had never heard of or try the Glue Stick Resist Technique until a challenge on Splitcoaststampers involved using it.  It actually is a fun technique.  It is quite similar to the Color Resist Technique, but using a glue stick instead of VersaMark stamped images covered with clear embossing powder.

To create the card, I applied a SU Glue Stick in a chevron pattern over a piece of water color paper. After the glue dried, I sponged three different colors of blue distress ink onto the panel. Then I removed the glue from the panel with a baby wipe.  If you do not have a baby wipe, a wet paper towel will work.  This photo shows the results, and it is just that simple.

I decided to use the piece of water color paper (i.e., above photo) to cut out a snowflake panel with the ODBD Snowflake Sky Dies.  I really like the outcome.  I also used the ODBD Snow Crystals Dies, which coordinate with the Snowflake Sky Dies, to add two white glitter snowflakes. Then I wrapped this panel with blue ribbon and a bow with a SU Frosted Finishes Embellishment in the center, offsetting the bow.

1 JOHN 4:7-11

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.  Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.  This is how God showed his love among us:  He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loves us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”
