Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells December 17, 2013

Well, the countdown for Christmas has truly begun!  I wish I could say I was already done with everything, but I am still trying to get out those last few Christmas cards and purchase a few more small gifts.

The card I am sharing with you today was created with the help of the Sizzix Framelits Triple Circle Flip-Its Card die set.


For this card, I used Brown Bag cardstock as the base.  Then, I used Cranberry Brown Bag text weight cardstock for two of the cut pieces and Olive Brown Bag text weight for the scalloped circles.  The center circles are cut out of Cryogen cardstock, since I wanted a white piece for the center and I did not want too bright a white for this particular card.  The reindeer stamps are from Martha Stewart, and they are embossed using Wow Primary Bark embossing powder.  The Jingle Bells sentiment is a clear stamp set from My Sentiments Exactly, and it is embossed using clear embossing powder.

Let It Snow! December 3, 2013

Well, here we are in December, so I say now is the time to bring on the snow… We got some for Thanksgiving, which was way too soon, and by the time December is over I’m sure I’ll be wanting it to stop snowing — but a white Christmas would be nice!

Here is my project for today using one of the cutting files from Bird’s Cards.


Let it Snow

For this project, I started out with Heavenly White Premium Ultrasmooth Cardstock as the base.  I covered it using the patterned snowflake designer paper.  Then, I cut out the two white layers using Cryogen cardstock.  If you look closely at the photograph, you can see the slight sparkle.  To make the Cryogen cardstock pop, I added a layer of the Pool Treasures cardstock.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post!
