Blessed Christmas Wishes


Happy holiday season everyone.  I love this time of year.  It just seems like time flies and I don't get all my projects done.

This is a card I saw online and loved the shape and pieces.  First I want to tell you the score and cuts for this card.  With the 8 1/2 inch side score at 4 1//4 and then move and cut at 6 1/4.  On the 11 inch side cut at 5 1/2.  This should give you 2 card bases.  The inside is 4 x 5 1/2.  The front layers are 3 x3 and 3 1/4 x 3 1/4.  The side layer is 1 3/4 x 5 1/4.  This is all in inches.

I made the base out of Blumarino Incandescent.  It has a gold shimmer to it.  The inside and small front piece is Gold Pearl Linen.  Finally the red down the side is Wild Cherry Pop Tones. Manger was all cut from Cryogen White and then colored with ink.

The small manger die and stamp set is from Papertrey Ink

Georgia is Two

This is card for a friend's little one that is turning two.  They are having a donut party.
 
All the cardstock for this card is from Paper Temptress and the links are provided.  The base for this card is Red Pepper Classic Linen.  I wanted another color pop so I used Yellow Thin Columns for the second layer.  I used ink around the edges to accent the pattern on the paper.  Razzle Berry Pop Tones seemed to be perfect for some of the wording.  I wanted to showcase here how well the Pop Tones line cuts in the cricut.  The first part of Two is  Orange Fizz Pop Tones.  Finally the donut is Hot Fudge Pop Tones with the icing being Banana Split Pop Tones.

Glitter was used as much as possible to finish off the accents.

Cable Knit Christmas

Christmas is sneaking up so I thought I would share my first Christmas card.

This was my card for Paper Temptress this week.  The base is Brown Basis.   The wreath was also cut from the Brown Basis.

 I thought the Green Basis would make a great second layer.  The Green Basis was also used as second layer on the sentiment.  I used Kraft Treasures for the cable knit layer.  It has a little texture and worked perfectly.

Olive Basis seemed to be the perfect cardstock for the greenery.  Gold Pearl Linen was used for the sentiment.  Last but not least was the shiny Red Ribbon Bow.

Troll For Aria

 Good thing is that this is a birthday card for my granddaughter and it is actually done early.  Guess what the theme of the part is.  TROLLS

The base of this card is amethyst mica metallic.  Mica metallic is shimmery and a really nice weight for the base.

I tried the Heavy Weight Vellum for the second layer.  It embossed so nicely.  I colored some of the areas on the back side.

The troll is actually 2 colors of Basis.  The bottom layer is Pink Basis and the top layer is Magenta Basis.  The wording is actually two colors.  I tried Aqua Basis (light ) first and it was to light, so I cut the words in Teal basis and placed it on top of the first layer.  It raised my words off the page and if you look at the side you can see the layers

For the Newlyweds



Well it must be wedding season.  The base for this card is Neenah Ivory.    I used Burgundy Basis for the embossed layer.  The basis line because of the cardstock weight takes embossing just perfectly.

I wanted to carry on the heart theme.  The first layer of the heart is Pink Ice Antique Parchment. The antique Parchment is a light pink variegated cardstock.   Top heart is the Neenah Ivory again only I added distress ink to the cut out image.  This cardstock took the ink accent just wonderfully.  The sentiment is stamped on Gold Pearl Linen.  The picture does not show it , but it has a beautiful shimmer to it.

Lastly the ribbon is some that I had in my stash.

Love is in the Air


I needed a wedding card for a girl at church.  Don't really know the colors for the wedding so I used colors that I like.   All the cardstock used for this card came from Magnolia Dreams cardstock pack.  The base for this card is Solar White Thin Columns.  I wanted the columns to show slightly so I used Antique Linen  distress ink.

The accent for the main image and the Love are both cut from Teal Basis.  I love this color because it is so rich and highlights beautifully.

Background for the hearts is White Pearl Linen.  Last month Paper Temptress paired with  Gracielle Design .  The polka dot pattern came from Magnolia Dreams pattern from Gracielle Designs. I did add some Victorian velvet distress inks to the edges

Hearts were cut from Azalia Mica Metallic.  Love the shimmer here.  Added the bow to symbolize a sort of union of the hearts.

Sharing one more Graciellie Design

I know the blog hop with Graciellie Design is over, but I just had to make one more card.  The previous link is for the etsy store.  Here is the link to the Graciellie Design blog

I have never really been one to print out digital paper and use it on cards, but love these designs.  The polka dot was printed on white pearl linen .  There is some slight texture there and a beautiful sheen.  I did add a few rhinestones for a little more glitz.  Cryogen White  always works beautifully for the digital paper designs and also for coloring.

The base for the card is Magenta Basis and the light blue layer is Aqua Basis.  The dark teal ribbon was calling to be added , so there you go.  Thanks to Graciellie Design for some great patterns and Paper Temptress for some great cardstock.
