Hope Your Season Sparkles
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0030

Working on addressing some cards today, and wanted to share one I did using my Finetec golds, with

Poppy's Perfect Pine Needles die.

DSC_0022

I knew I wanted to make a wreath, so I die cut the image several times from white cardstock, 7 to be exact.

DSC_0020

Assembly on a circle cut from 2 Memory Box dies taped together gave me the perfect wreath base.

To add a bit of sparkle, the tips were pressed into Versamark and embossed with Antique Gold Powder.

A sprinkling of glitter and my card is ready to send!

Happy crafting and Happy Holidays!

Challenge Reminder - Anything But a Card
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0024

Hello! And welcome to a friendly reminder to create something for our challenge this month, 'Anything But a Card'.

Need a hint? How about a gift card holder? Who couldn't use a few of those this time of year?

DSC_0010 2

Surprise Deer is so sweet, and gets the 'aaahs' everytime!

Here's how I used him to make my gift card tag.

DSC_0008

If you purchase one tag set this year, let me rave about Pinpoint Main Street Tags, and

Pinpoint Dome Tag Decorations.

8 sizes to choose from, and together with the Decorations sets, you have endless possibilities!

I cut my tag from shimmer card stock, ran it though an embossing folder, and chose one of the decorations dies for a pocket.

DSC_0007

The deer was sprayed with shimmer spray, and sponged on the edges. Notice the antlers can be cut separately allowing for a color change.

DSC_0005

Assembling my gift card holder was easy. Just glued the sides and bottom of the added Dome Tag Decoration. The snowy base is the top of the Dome Tag cut to form a hill. The hill, snowflake and Tree Trunks were cut from glitter paper.

DSC_0021 2

Not decided yet who will get this Starbucks gift card!

DSC_0019

Liked this design so much, I made 3 in different color combos!

Does this give you ideas? Would love to see and comment on your creation. Remember, the challenge lasts all month, and there's a gift certificate prize for the winner!

Happy Crafting, and Happy Holidays!

Christmas Shaker Wreath
by Marybeth Lopez

Fullsizeoutput_e6e

Hi there, Marybeth here  today. I used the Ball Wreath again this time for a Christmas Shaker with added holly from Wintertime Fairies, both from Poppystamps .

Fullsizeoutput_e44

This is the ugly back side of my card showing you the fun foam channel I created to fill with sequins. After I filled it I adde a piece of vellum over the opening. I was a bit messy with the sequins and some stuck to the tape on the back of the fun foam.( try not to do that....lol) Oh before I placed the fun foam I added a layer of acetate over the die opening.

Download-1

Try not to see my thumb... the lighting in the room I take photos is not good this time of year unless I take the photo in the morning. I added a bit of glossy accents and a bit of glitter to the berries. I used shimmer pens on the holly leaves.

Red Lantern
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0014

With Christmas right around the corner, creating a few extra cards is a great idea, and I know will come in handy.

DSC_0010

Here's some inspiration for you, created with all dies.

DSC_0004

I started with Garden Lantern, and cut it with red card stock and then again with a darker red twice, to give it stability.

Then I gave it a window with clear cardstock.

DSC_0005

Shiny Snowflakes cut from glitter paper...

DSC_0008Floribunda Collage provided the snow, in several sizes.

DSC_0013

I hope you're putting the finishing touches on your cards. And I hope you found some Poppy inspiration today!

Have a great day!

Sparkle
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0021

Greetings!  It's time for some Holiday card inspiration, and I have just the dies to help spark your holiday spirit!

DSC_0003 2

Is that sweet deer the cutest? 

DSC_0007

I made a stencil from the the Tree Trunks Craft die, and used my Starburst sprays.

DSC_0014

Lots of foam and more spray and glitter for the next layer,  Pine Needle Clearing.  

The deer comes with a separate die for his antlers, allowing for a color change if you want. I blinged parts of him with Diamond Stickles.

DSC_0018

The word, Sparkle, seemed the perfect sentiment for my holiday card!

I'd love to hear what you think. Did you get any of the dies featured on my card during the blitz? 

Have fun crafting, and I'll be back soon!

Santa in the Chimney
by Marybeth Lopez

 

 IMG_0177 2

Hi there! Happy December to you all! We are enjoying some beautiful weather here in California, I hope its beautiful by you too.  

Sharing a Christmas card with you today. I love these simple openings in the center of the card. I like to leave the sentiment for the inside.

Download

For this clean and simple I used the: Large Cute Window,Open Hillside and Santa Chimney all from Poppystamps .

I created the card pretty much the same way I always do. I layer with fun foam and sprinkle with glitter. 

The first picture is the most clear, seems when I add my watermark I lose the clarity of my photo.

Download-2

I layered the windowsill three times. The cardstock is watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby .

Thank you so much for stoping by and than you for all the past comment on my post. You are all so kind.

Gingerbread House Card
by Jennifer Svare

Gingerbread2
Hello!  This fun gingerbread house card was made using the Classic Cottage die.  I used this die for Thanksgiving placeholders last week.  This is a similar idea with the trees and house, but just by switching to bright colors and turning it all into gingerbread, it's easy to create a card with a completely different look! This would also make a fun shaker card.

I love how the gingerbread boy and girl dies have so many options in the way they cut out into separate pieces.  I used the key lime and red gingham paper by Birchpress Design for the vest and dress.  

Gingerbread1

I also wanted to show how cute the trees look over top of Birchpress Design's gingham paper.  I didn't use it for this project, but just had to show it!  There is transparent glitter paper over top:
