More Christmas Blues

Posted by Susan on Tuesday, October 27, 2009 in ,


Well here are more examples I made using my new favorite color matches...baby blue, kraft and white. I went back to my SU Snow Swirled stamps for a great set of snowflake impressions, and pulled out my new EK Success snowflake border punch for the white edging.
I played around a bit with these cards, with white ink, then glitter. I think next time I'll try white rub-ons.
Paper: Cardstock in baby blue, white and kraft
Stamps: SU Snow Swirled

I think SU's Snow Swirled is one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets ever! I just love all the great things you can achieve with it's variations.

Here I tried some non-conventional Christmas colors, using a beautiful bright pink and white cardstock and a matching designer paper.

Hang the ornaments on the tree!

When I saw this punch and the matching stamps in the SU holiday mini catalog it shot straight to the top of my "must have" list. It is just TOO cute and so versatile, I can't wait to use it again...and again...and again.

This card also marked the start of my Christmas Blues phase. I saw this great color scheme...again in the SU holiday mini...the whole navy, bashful blue, kraft mix. I never would have thought to put these colors together myself but I think the match is really stunning.

Paper: Cardstock in navy and baby blue, designer paper (source unknown)
Other Supplies: SU Ornament punch, Glitter Ritz sky blue, stock michaels satin ribbon in baby blue.

Sparkling white and freshly rolled...

... the little snowman LOVES the cold!



This card and all it's glittery goodness reminds me of this little snowman book my son likes. The snow roller turned out really well on this card, rolled in not quite navy on bashful blue cardstock. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch, dipped in a glue bad and sprinkled with Martha Stewart white glitter. Then I added a strip of white, cut with the Martha Stewart icicle punch and also dipped in glitter. It turned out really well I think.
Paper: SU cardstock Night of Navy and Bashful Blue
Stamps: SU Snow jumbo roller, SU Snow Swirled (for sentiment)
Inks: SU Night of Navy, Versamark
Other Supplies: Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Martha Stewart icicle punch, silver embossing powder, silver ribbon, Martha Stewart white glitter.

Brrrr....it's cold up here!

I bought this great set at a special scrapbook sale. I had never gotten the chance to order it before it retired so it was a great find. And it makes the cutest little card, particularly for a busy family when the hats, skates and mits start flying.
Supplies: SU cardstock in summer sun and night of navy, SU Maine Blueberry designer paper

Ink: SU Night of Navy, Markers
Other Supplies: white pen (for stitches) and matching eyelets

Glitter Snowflake

Posted by Susan on Tuesday, October 27, 2009 in ,

I wanted to try a glittered, layered snowflake to see how it would turn out. I pressed my die cut snowflakes into a glue pad and then pressed on Martha Stewart glitter in silver and a dark blue. Then I ran the lower portion of my card with the SU Snow jumbo roller and versamark and then sprinkled it with hologram embossing powder.

I might try this card again with some variation, but I'm not sure what yet...I have to play.

Paper: SU Night of Navy cardstock, white cardstock
Stamps: SU Snow Jumbo Roller
Inks: Versamark and Glue Pad
Techniques: Embossing and glitter
Other Supplies: Martha Stewart Glitter, Martha Stewart drippy goo punch, Snowflake stencils, silver elastic cording, hologram embossing powder

Evil Pumpkins

Posted by Susan on Monday, October 26, 2009 in ,

This card turned out much more ominous than I thought it would, but I really liked the effect, and it was so simple. I just took the pumpkin from the SU House of Haunts set, stamped him multiple times at random on a piece of designer paper and embossed him in black embossing powder. I also embossed the Happy Halloween sentiment on the same paper but made it a tag instead. When it was all done I was going to attach it with orange ribbon but the green seemed to set it off just enough.

Paper: K&Company Halloween Whimsey designer paper, black cardstock
Stamps: SU House of Haunts, Inkadinkadoo All Hallows Eve
Ink: Versamark
Other Supplies: Black embossing powder and certainly celery ribbon
