Hello my fellow crafters, I am so glad you are here today! I cannot believe we are so close to September and before we know it we’ll all be staring down Christmas wondering where the time went. Scrapping For Less has been creating beautiful paper pads and one of the newest ones is “A Red Christmas” and it’s a must have!
The card above shows off several of the sheets from the “A Red Christmas” paper pad. I just couldn’t bring myself to cover up the ornaments on that main middle panel which is why I went with die cutting the sentiment and letting that be the focal point. Originally cut out in kraft paper it wasn’t showing up enough for my taste so out came Nuvo drops in white to make sure the sentiment would stand out. Also added some dots to the little tab at the top right.
Below is a pic of all the recently released paper pads. Grab yours before they’re gone!
Thank you for stopping in today. I wish you time for yourself this week to do whatever makes your heart happy.
Hey fellow crafters! Kim here with a quick card using SFL’s Arctic Sentiments stamp setand Carta Bella’s Christmas paper pad. This little moose is just so darling I had to color him and give him center stage. It’s funny I was so excited to put him in the center of the circle that I forgot to put a shadow underneath him to ground him and I am just now realizing that he’s floating in that circle. I’ll have to fix that…oops! I guess there is always tweaking that can be done right?
For this little moose I stamped him with Memento Dye Ink in Tuxedo Blackthen colored him with Prismacolor pencils. I am still learning with my pencils so when I color with pencils I don’t really do a lot of blending I just color. This card came together quickly which isn’t always the case but sometimes it’s nice to have the ones that are cute and quick because if you are anything like me you are still making Christmas cards even into the middle or maybe late December.
Hope your holiday season has kicked off brilliantly and you are getting in some extra time with friends and loved ones. Take care and do a little something crafty for yourself!
Hello hello! Kim here bringing you a card I made with an elegant die from Find It Trading, Christmas Baubles. This delicate die cuts out very nicely, a little tip though if you do like I did and use glitter paper also use a shim it’ll give you a smoother cut. The glitter paper I used is self adhesive which makes it even more user friendly in my opinion. I used silver glitter paper and gold glitter paper because I thought they would really stand out against the red and I was very pleased with how it turned out.
Now I like the baubles a whole lot but I definitely agree that they are not able to carry the whole card but I also wanted them to really stand out. I decided to use MFT’s Merry Christmas Greeting stamp and embossed it in white embossing powder. With this large sentiment offset it left a good amount of space for the Christmas Baubles to fit right in beside it. I adhered it all down to a card front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and with all the glitteriness (not a real word I know) of the baubles I felt it was finished. Yay! One card down and oh so many more to go, good thing I love making Christmas cards right?
Thanks so much for stopping in and checking out the blog today. I hope you get to do something for yourself.
