Wintertime Scene Birthday Card

Hello, my friends!  I hope you are having a good day!  Thank you for stopping by to see my Wintertime Scene Birthday Card.  This card could be a Christmas card; however, I created it for my granddaughter who will have her 3-year old birthday next month.  She loves crafting with her Nana, using CottageCutz dies, the color pink, deer, etc.  Therefore, I kept that in mind when creating the card.  Before her birthday, I will add a Happy Birthday sentiment on the sign that is hanging from the post.

1 Peter 2:24

“He himself [Jesus] bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his woulds you have been healed.”

Outlines Rubber Stamp Holly Background

Before the New Year arrives, I wanted to share with you one more Christmas card that features the Outlines Rubber Stamp Holly Background.  This stamp is from the Outlines Rubber Stamps Company that went out of business a few years ago.  I love the company’s stamps, and was disappointed about it closing.  I am grateful that I got several of the company’s stamps before it closed.

I made this card for a Clean and Simply Challenge, CAS398, on Splitcoaststampers. The hostess of the challenge asked for a one layer card made with one stamp and one sentiment, and my card is just that.  Additionally, I used a score board to add score lines on all sides of the card.  I love how the card turned out, and so did several others.  The card was a favorite card of several Splitcoaststampers artists.

I used several Copic Sketch Markers to color the holly and berries, adding glossy accents onto the berries.  I added red dots around the card using Nuvo Crystal Drops.  I used a blue Copic Sketch Marker to color around the image, and stamped the sentiment using Stampin’ Up! (SU) Real Red Ink.  The sentiment is from an old SU stamp set, Jolly Old Saint Nick.

Show some love by leaving comments.  I love reading them!

Winter Wonderland Scene

It’s Tuesday and that means it another Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers!  The colors selected for today’s challenge are Stampin’ Up! (SU) Pool Party, Always Artichoke, and Cherry Cobbler!  For extra points (i.e., dessert), I included some “Bling”! My card, a Winter Wonderland Scene, is my submission for the challenge.  This is the third week that I have been a guest designer for the Splitcoaststampers color challenges and I’ve enjoyed it!

Winter Wonderland Scene

My card’s main feature is a Winter Wonderland Scene made with a Cottage Cutz die and Solar White Card Stock.  To break up the white and create a red building, I cut out a second Winter Wonderland Scene using Cherry Cobbler Card Stock.  I cut off the red church from the die cut and adhered it to the original white one.  I also used an Impression Obsession Die to cut and add three cardinals.

To get extra points (i.e., dessert) for the card, I added various colors of Stickles glue around the scene!  Hopefully it shows up well enough for you to see the bling.

Finally, I added a poinsettia on the left-bottom corner that I made with Spellbinders dies. I added Gold Flower Soft to the center of the flower.
