Christmas Florals

Posted by Susan on Friday, December 20, 2013 in ,
I must have been inspired by the fall floral arrangements, because I decided to do some Christmas floral arrangements. The nice thing about Christmas floral arrangements - GLITTER!

I really like how both of these turned out - although the night I made them my son tracked glitter through the entire first floor of the house. It looked like little pixies had a party and left fairy dust EVERYWHERE!

Blue Christmas

Posted by Susan on Sunday, December 15, 2013 in ,
I saw a beautiful autumn card that used a clear embossing powder and then a sponging technique over top and I decided to try it on a Christmas card.

Here are the results:

Merry & Bright

Posted by Susan on Wednesday, December 04, 2013 in ,
A few years back I created a Christmas card I really liked that featured a string of Christmas lights. This year I found some stickers by Jolee's Boutique that I thought would really work to re-make a newer version of that card, so I thought I would give it a try.

I just love all the glitter and the Stampin' Up roller stamp that I used on the white underlay.

Die Cuts Crazy

This is my version of a beautiful card I pinned on my pinterest wall from Andy at Pinnacle Crafts (http://livelovelaughcraft.blogspot.ca/2012/01/happy-new-year.html). The original version used black, which created a very dynamic effect. I chose red, not only because it's my favourite colour, but because it's a bit more Christmas-sy.

Enjoy

On thin ice

Posted by Susan on Wednesday, December 04, 2013 in ,
This card had the potential to be really awesome, but the black embossing powder marred the white skates a little bit, so I got a few black smudges. I might try this card again but just color in the black part of the skates next time rather than trying to emboss it.

I did however, use a Christmas paper I'd been hording for years, so points to me for using up some stash product.

Not my buttons.....not my gumdrop buttons

I got this idea from a card I pinned on pinterest from Margaret Raburn (funstampin.blogspot.ca/)

My design is a bit different than her original, as it uses different paper, different gingerbread men, and a tag, but the idea definitely grew from her original card, so thank you Margaret :D

Playing with Glitter

Posted by Susan on Monday, November 04, 2013 in ,
I saw a great technique using the Essential Glue Pad and Glitter Ritz I wanted to try. The trick: waiting 15-20 minutes after stamping the image using glue for it to get tacky before applying the glitter ritz.

I love the way this turned out.

I'll save this one for a Birthday or Mother's Day card.
