Oatmeal Cookie cardstock is a must have for me when I am making my holiday cards.  I love the vintage look it gives.  Very simplistic.

For this card I took a piece of Oatmeal Cookie (CS-0023) card stock and stamped the Vintage Notes (SS-0303) background stamp in Oatmeal Cookie (IP-0011) ink.  I stamped the words Wishing you a in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink that come from the Holiday Wishes (SS-0469) stamp set.  The small Poinsettia (Poinsettia Burst Bundle – BD-0295) was stamped in Cranberry Bliss (IP-0049) ink directly onto the Oatmeal Cookie panel and colored in the middle using #016 from the Journey Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077).  I added some Gold Silk (IP-0096) before adhering it to the Raspberry Berry (CS-0097) card base.

Using the large Poinsettia from the Poinsettia Burst Bundle (BD-0295), I stamped that in Cranberry Bliss ink onto a scrap piece of Butter Cream (CS-0006) cardstock and cut it out using the coordinating die.  I colored the center the same way as the smaller one.  Taking some Journey Gold Thread (AC-0205), I made a loop and adhered the thread and Pointsettia with a couple of Foam Squares (AD-0085) to the Oatmeal Cookie panel.  I felt it needed a little something, so I added Journey Glaze (AD-0003) and Sparkle Cuts (AC-0151) to the center of the large Poinsettia.

On the inside Merry Christmas from the Sparkle Trim (SS-0495) stamp set was stamped in Cranberry Bliss ink onto a Butter Cream panel.

Star of Wonder | Fresh Forest

I love being out in nature.  It definitely is my go to place when I need to recharge.

I enjoy making nature type cards for the holidays.  Last year I did a Raspberry Berry color, this year I went with Denim Days.  I love how you get a different look with each color.

Using the 1″ circle punch (TO-0013), I punch out a mask from a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) to make the moon.  I gently adhered this piece to a Whip Cream card panel.  Taking my Denim Days (IP-0010) ink pad, I applied the pad directly to an Clear Block J (TO-0079), the using the Brayer (TO-0087), I picked up the ink from the block and rolled it onto the Whip Cream panel staring at the bottom and working my way up to the top.

Using the Fresh Forest (SS-0487) stamp set, I inked up some of the images in Fresh Forest (IP-0013) ink and stamped them onto the same panel.  Using the Star from the Sparkle Trim (SS-0495) set, I stamped that in Journey Silver (IP-0107) ink.  The sentiment came from the Night Star (SS-0518) stamp set [this is a Host Exclusive] in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.

I mixed a bit of Gesso (JM-0072) and water [you can also use acrylic paint (JM-01063) and water – I will put both in the supply list below) and using the Medium Blending Brush (TO-0098) and a Clear Block F (TO-0075), I flicked the mixture off the edge of the acrylic block to make the snow.  I then added Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).  Once that was done I removed the 1″  mask.

This panel was then adhered to a piece of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) before being added to a Denim Days (CS-0082) card base.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Night Star (SS-0518) [Host Exclusive] stamp set in Black Licorice (IP-0041) and also added the star from the front to the inside using Journey Silver (IP-0107) ink.

Happy Holidays |Ice Skates

I love making wintery type cards and I love our Inspiration Book & Catalog, it is jam packed with inspiration.  Here is my attempt at replicating the creation that is shown on page 104 of the annual catalog.  While it did not come out exactly like the one in the catalog, I am very pleased with how it turned out.

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock I stamped the Ink Splat (AT-0108) image in Pretty Amethyst (IP-0018) ink.  The Snowflake from the Snow Burst (SS-0144) stamp set was stamped in Pretty Pansy (IP-0026) ink.  Using the Happy Holidays from the Sparkle Trim (SS-0495) stamp set, I stamped it in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) this panel was adhered to a piece of Pretty Pansy (CS-0029) cardstock, that was then adhered to a piece of Pretty Amethyst (CS-0028) cardstock onto a Pretty Pansy card base.

Happy Holidays Ski Sled Skate copy
I colored in the blade of the skate using Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077)

 

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream cardstock, I stamped the skates that come from the Ski Sled Skate (SS-0360) stamp set [love this stamp set, so much fun] onto a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink and cut it out using our Circle Dies (DI-0039) and then stamped the little snowflake from the Poinsettia Basket (SS-0527) in Black Licorice ink as well and punched it out using a 3/4″ Circle Punch (TO-0012).

These pieces were added to the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085).  Before adding the skates, I adhered some Whip Cream Thread (AC-0128) behind it.  The card was finished off with some Silver Silk (IP-0090) and adhered the Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AD-0083).

I think I am going to make up a few more of these and change the greeting to make it a Winter Wishes, Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Thank You or Just Because.  I love the beauty of winter!
