The Miracle of Christmas

Searching for ideas on the internet I found this very nice folded tree pattern.  The paper is Holly Jolly Christmas Vine from TPC Studio.  The verse if from the JustRite nested sentiments.  I used a little Glimmer Mist on the sentiment, some sparkly paper, a simple bow and the card is done.  A little gem finishes the tree.  Hope you enjoy.

Holiday Mittens

These Mittens were cut using the New Spellbinder dies and the JustRite " Sparky the snowman" set.  The solid was embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder and the red snowflake buttons are from TPC Studio "Christmas Village".   Copic Markers were used for the mitten colors.  Hope you enjoy

A little window with some Flower Soft creates a nice card for this JustRite snowman.  I colored my snowman using Copic Markers and purchased the window circle at my LSS Fond Memories.   I added Flower Soft for the snow effect and then put this on Basic Grey paper with a border cut from a Spellbinders circle and scallop.  The mittens are the new set from Spellbinders.  This was all mounted on red for a fairly simple card.  Hope you enjoy

Celebrate the good times

JustRite Friday Challenge 045: Celebrate Good Times, Sponsored by Flower Soft!  For this challenge I created a Christmas card using JustRite's Christmas Nested Sentiments.  This was stamped, distressed with Antique Linen and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist.  A border was cut from Spellbinder's Jewel Tones foil with labels 16 and embossed with snowflakes by Cuttelbug.  I attended a workshop at CHA  where we learned to use the iTool from Imaginisce so I used that to create the silver jewel effect on the stamped sentiment.  I added a pretty double sided bow (red and silver) from May Arts.  All of this was placed on paper from Cosmo Cricket,  Hope you enjoy

Winter Mittens

How simple to create a little holiday card.  A JustRite snowman and sentiment from their new cling line and a Spellbinder mitten die are the focus of this card.  Copic markers, a little Antique Linen distress ink, some twine and paper of your choice. Add some Sparkly Fluff from our Craft Lounge for the snow, a few black beads for nose and buttons and you have a simple little card.  Isn't that snowman adorable.  Hope you enjoy

Northwood Cardinal

Northwood Stamps has this very nice cardinal stamp.  I used it with the new Spellbinder Lacey Square die.  The paper is from Girls Paperie and Bazzill.  Copic Markers make it so easy to color the image and add a little glitter on the snow to finish off the card.  Hope you enjoy.

A cardinal holiday

Heartfelt Creations comes up with some of the prettiest designs.  I copied this from their site.  I fell in love with this stamp at CHA and just had to have it.  This was stamped some time ago and is so simple.  Copic markers (many of them) , a little Stickles, some gold and red cardstock help make this a fun card to do.  I used a small paint brush to apply the stickles.The cardinal is stamped a second time and layered for the finished look.   Hope you enjoy.

Vintage Christmas

The JustRite Challenge 044 is a color challenge sponsored by Spellbinders.  The colors are Navy, Gold and Rust.  The paper I selected is from Graphic 45 and highlights these colors.  A solid from Bazzill helps finish off the card.  A toy soldier from the JustRite Vintage Christmas set is colored using Copic Markers E08, Y21, B97 which are the challenge colors plus CO, C3, C5, E00 and Spica Gold.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Nested Sentiments by JustRite. The ribbon was a May Arts white which I colored using Copic E08 to get the right color to correspond with my card.   Spellbinder circles, large scallop circles and a tag helped finish off the card.  Hope you enjoy.  (edit:  Thank you JustRite for selecting this card as the Challenge 044 winner)

Sympathy Nested Sentiments

JustRite Friday Challenge 043: Show Your Support   

This card (an inside/outside) was made to honor a very special person in my life.  I lost my Aunt (age 95) last night so this card is for her.  Thank you to JustRite for having the perfect stamps for me to use.  The card was made using Spellbinder's labels 15, beaded ovals and an oval on the outside with Deepest Sympathy from the new JustRite Sympathy Nested Sentiments.  My paper is from WeR Memory Keepers "Merry January Branch".   I used both sides of the paper along with solids from Bazzill.  I continued the card to the inside and used Labels 10 and another sentiment from the Nested set.   Pearls from my stash were used on both the outside and inside along with a little Distress Antique Linen and a ribbon from May Arts.
