Sarah and Winter Friends

Another set of Christmas cards that are already out and in the mail.  YAY!!  I feel so successful!!  LOL!!  I've used Maja Design papers from last year called "I Wish" and reason being is because there is still stock on some papers and the 6 x 6 pad.  Ooooo I love the weight of Maja's papers and they're so nice to work with!!  


Here is Whimsy's "Winter Friends" and lots of pretties from the Noor shop.  There are some really neat new Scrapiniec pieces called "Nordic Sweater Borders" and each card got their own but dang I only took pics of two.  So at the bottom of these two cards are trees and large X and O's.  I've dabbed them with Tim Holtz ink cubes and then clear embossed them.  (Sorry for the dark pics!)


And here's Whimsy's "Sarah" adorned with some gorgeous WOC flowers from the shop.


How do you like the wreaths?  They are from Wycinanka called "Mr. & Mrs. Wreath".  I colored them with my Tim Holtz distress marker directly to the chipboard.  After they dried, I then embossed them with some clear embossing powder and topped them off with some red Stickles to the hearts.  After the Stickles dried I brushed them with some gesso...actually I brushed the whole card with gesso once complete.  


So I feel like a card making maniac and I'm still not done!!  I think I've made close to 40 cards and only have one left for Christmas.  However, then I have more I'd like to make for New Year's.  LOL!  Well, we'll see how burnt out I am after all this as to how many actually get done.  hee hee

I hope you enjoyed the double posts today!!  I will have more for you next week!

Hugs!

One of a Kind Snowglobe Die

Good day!  Today I'm sharing a bunch of cards I made using Maja Design papers called "Joyous Winterdays" and although these all look the same, if you look closer, they're  not.  Welllll, because when you start doing more than 2 of something you quickly discover that you don't have the same supplies for all of them.  LOL!!  No problem and that's what I like about "stash".  😀  Oh but the border die on each card is the same.  YAY!!  LOL!  That's the new Joy die called "Ornamental Border" die.  Kind of appropriate for this time of year I think!

   
I was so excited to see the new die come out from Joy "One of a Kind Snowglobe" because I knew I would use it to make a multiple bunch of cards.  I know I'll be using it again as I see so many things that could fit in the globe other than the city.  It could even be used for birthday cards throughout the year.


Here is some foliage using Whimsy's "Christmas Branches".  This set is awesome because it's fully loaded with all kinds of leaf dies.  I don't think I'll ever need any more for the xmas season!  I've also used some cherry blossoms and pixie blooms.  Some flowers may not be in the store in the colors I've used but there is a huge selection so you can always find something you like!


Oh and did you notice the pearl trim I used on them?  I think I have 3 different kinds there.  Anything with pearls and you've got my attention!!  Pearls and glitter.  LOL!!

Thanks for dropping by and see you again soon!
Hugs,
Eulanda

Penguin Christmas Sweetheart

Back to loving the new Maja Design papers "Joyous Winterdays".  I don't have much left and I got the whole collection!!!   😲  This card was sooooo fun!!  For some reason it took awhile to come together but hey ... sometimes that's what being creative is all about right?  hee hee  Well, that's my excuse anyway.  😀


I CAN'T STOP WITH THE PENGUINS!!   Seems to be my theme this year.  LOL!  I suspect I'm not alone!  I've so enjoyed coloring them up and I don't think I'm done yet!!  ha ha ha!!  This little cutie is again a Whimsy image called "Penguin Christmas Sweetheart" which I've colored with my Copics.  How do you like the pom-pom on the hat?!!  ha ha ha!!  I love it!!  I've also added "MERRY" with the new Joy "Scrabble Stamp and Die" set.  This is a must have in your stash!!  


Here I've made some more Foamiran flowers but I've used a poinsettia die that I had in my stash.  I shared this because I wanted to show you that you really can use any die with this foam.  I could only cut 2 layers at a time instead of 4 because the dies aren't as deep as others that are sold in the store but it still works.  So don't tell yourself you need to buy everything all at once.  Just start with a few sheets of foam and work your way into more foam .... and then more dies.  hee hee 


I've used a few Scrapiniec pieces on my card and embossed both using VersaMark's "Dazzle" and ultra thick embossing powder.  In real life and up close there's a pretty shimmer on the tatting Christmas stars and mistletoe.


Ok!!!  On to more Christmas cards.  LOL!  I think this year I should  make it mandatory to complete 2 xmas cards a month.  Well.....I don't think I could do that.  There's way too many other pretty things out in the crafting world at other times of the year.  hee hee

Snowman Lighted Canvas

So....I don't claim to be a painting artist and in fact, this is only the second canvas I've ever made.  The first one at least had an instructor.  LOL!!  Thanks Cheri!!  I saw this on Pinterest and just HAD to have it but since no one else would make it for me, well ya so you know the rest.  ha ha ha!  I added some some snow texture at the bottom and even tho you can't see it, I've built up some piles and ridges of snow.


AND WHO DOESN'T LIKE A GLITTERED SNOWMAN!!  


Here he is all lighted up.  He's actually not THAT see-through in real life.  Hindsight I would probably make the branches a bit lighter brown but again, you can see it better IRL.


YAY!!!  FINALLY SOMETHING FOR ME!!!!

I hope you like it!

December Noor! Design UK Challenge

WOW time sure flies doesn't it?!!  Feels like I was just posting November's challenge and now it's already December.  Although I do find November and December just zoom on by!!  Oh ya, the challenge:

ANYTHING GOES

Sometimes when I do a card without an image I feel like I'm cheating but it's a different kind of thing and I love it.   I've used Pion's latest collection called "Christmas Wishes".  I'm sure glad I don't have to come up with idea's of what to name things.  Can you image?!!  😲


As the focal piece I've used Scrapiniec's "Mistletoe Big Baubles"  and added some pearls that I had in my stash.  The sentiment came with the Pion collection so it makes it easy to incorporate them into your card.  Well, maybe I'm speaking for myself because I have a tough time adding sentiments on the front.  The front is for embellishing the crap out of as far as I'm concerned.  HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!


HOW CUTE IS THIS?!!  A reindeer paperclip!  Who would have thought?!!  I've also added a Joycraft "Lacey Cotton Heart" behind the paperclip and those are new to the shop.  Well actually almost all of this card is.  LOL!!


And also new to the shop, Joycraft "Burlap Artificial Flowers Cream" that I popped over top of Joy's "Happy Holidays Poinsettia" die.  I can't take credit for that design as I first saw it when one of my teammates, Emma, did it on one of her cards a few weeks ago.  Well obviously I liked it!!  LOL!!

 

Are you on overload now?  I've hit you up back to back with Christmas cards.  I hope you're getting ahead on them.  I'm kind of on pause right now but I better get my butt back in gear.  ha ha ha

Thanks for coming by again!
Hugs!

Penguin Warm Winter Wishes Take 2

I couldn't help myself!!  I made another card using this cute stamp - Whimsy's "Penguin Warm Winter Wishes".  These guys are just so cute!!!  Again, I also paired it up with papers from Maja Design's "Joyous Winterdays" collection.  Sooooo luvin' this collection!!!!  Shocker huh?  hee hee


These stars are AWESOME!!!  Studio Light's "Winter Feelings" die pack comes with a variety of some absolutely perfect stars for cards!!  Definitely my favorites right now!  There are some Scrapiniec chipboard pieces that I've first inked up and then added some gorgeous glitter to for some bling and pop.


Here are a few more stars for you and a few WOC flowers for my little bouquet.  AND ... what do you think of my little red peppers from JoyCraft??!!  LOL!!  Did you even really know that's what they are?  JUST FUN!


Here I've used a new Joy die called "Scalloped Edge die w/Flowers" - very pretty - and some more Scrapiniec chipboard that I've colored up called "Nordic Sweater Trees".  I like blue trees!!  LOL!!  That's one thing I really like about Christmas.  Any color goes!!!  There's nothing wrong with non-traditional colors and in fact, sometimes it's a nice change!
