Joy to the World

Good morning and Merry Christmas.  My Christmas morning project was made using the Impression Obsession Joy to the World sentiment die and paired with the Pine Pair and  Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.

The scalloped layers were attached to the card base with mounting tape. The sentiment was attached with tiny pieces of mounting tape applied to the larger letter sections of the sentiment.

I love the gorgeous Impression Obsession Joy to the World sentiment and wanted to share it for my Christmas morning post.  It truly is the reason for our celebration during this special time of year.  Bob and I wish you and your loved ones a blessed Christmas.

Merry Christmas and Pine

Good Saturday afternoon.  I have had a good time today playing with some of the Impression Obsession holidays that I haven’t had the chance to use yet.  I love the flourish surrounding the sentiment and the tiny ornament and deer that came with the Merry Christmas Flourish set.  I used the Pine Pair and my new Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.

I attached both the scalloped layers to the card base using mounting tape.  Then I cut tiny pieces of mounting tape and attached to the major letters of the sentiment and attached to the white scalloped layer.

I attached the pine pieces to the top corner of the card using glossy accents and attached the multi loop bow with glue dots. I finished by adding one of the leaping deer and tiny gold ornament.

Clean and Simple Snowflakes

Good Tuesday morning.  Are there times you just need to make a few fast and easy cards to have on hand.  I really like how simple and easy this card is to put together and yet it looks so pretty with the red showing through the snowflakes. For this project I used the Impression Obsession Snowflakes Cutout and Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Stackables

I placed the stackable die on the Big Shot platform and placed the three dies inside the stackable.  I placed a piece of waxed paper over the dies, and then placed the white cardstock over the dies and ran through my machine to cut.

I cut a piece of red cardstock and attached it to the card base with ATG adhesive. I applied mounting tape to the back of the snowflake layer and attached it to the card base.  That’s it.  A really pretty card that took only minutes to make.

Christmas Poinsettia Window

Good Monday morning.  Do you remember when Poppystamps came out with the Grand Madison Window?  I think both the grand and small windows were released in 2011 and I just went crazy for both of them.  I have no idea how many projects I have made with them but it is plenty.  I had a hankering to make a see thru window card this past weekend with the Grand Madison Window and paired it with the Poppystamps Small Blooming Poinsettia and Impression Obsession Holly Flourish.  I couldn’t resist coverring the poinsettias and holly with clear glitter for an extra holiday touch.  I have gotten asked quite often where I put my greeting when I make a see thru window.  I just turn it over and stamp my sentiment or hand write my note on the back.  I know it is a little strange but I love the effect of seeing thru the window.

I attached a piece of pink cardstock to the front of my white card base.  I cut two windows, one for the front and one for inside to cover the raw cut edges of my see thru window. I used one of the windows as a template to draw cutting lines and then used my kraft knife to cut out the opening.  You can see my step by step see thru window tutorial if you would like to check out the steps to cutting and assembling my card. I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and attached it to the front of the card base.  I applied ATG adhesive to the back of the second window and attached it to the inside. I took a quick shot of the inside of the card after it was finished to show how clean and neat it looks with no raw edges showing.

I cut three pairs of poinsettia flowers in the pale pink and three in green.  I like to use the largest flower in green as the foliage for the assembled flower.  I formed the flowers using my stylus and molding pad and assembled them using glossy accents.  I cut two sections of the Holly Flourish to use for the foliage.  I gently formed the holly stems with my fingers to remove the flat appearance and then attached one to the window with glossy accents in two or three spots to hold. I attached the three poinsettias with glossy accents and then tucked a few cut up pieces of the holly flourish to fill in.  I attached the small pearls in the flower centers to finish.

I applied Cosmic glitter glue to the foliage and flowers with my finger and then sprinkled the clear glitter.  I love the sparkle but it doesn’t really show well in the pictures.

Framed Pine, Holly and Christmas Berries

Good Sunday morning.  I have an old-fashioned Christmas card to share with you today with pine, holly, berries and a multi looped tartan bow.  The frame was made using the Poppystamps Leafy Frame and the pine, holly and berry stems were made using the Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens set.  The bow was made using ribbon I found at Michaels.

I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.  I wanted to create an all white background for the foliage and ribbon and the die cut frame added another element of interest without distracting from the arrangement.

I lightly formed the holly leaves with my stylus and molding pad and bent and formed the pine using my fingers.  I  applied 1/8” punched red circles to the berry branches and holly stems with glossy accents.  I arranged the pine branches, holly and berry stems and attached to the card base with glossy accents.  I tied the bow and attached it to the arrangement with glue dots.  Check out my multi loop bow tutorial if you would like to see how I make my multi loop bows.

Here’s a little closer view. I added red stickles to the red berries to create a bit of sparkle.
