Noel with a Little Bling & Glitter

Hi all, I hope everyone is enjoying this warm weather we've been having here.......I would love it if it would stay this way for the whole winter :)

So onto today's post.....I thought I would try the new Want 2 Scrap Nestabling and the Nestaboards, the awesome thing with these is they match your spellbinders dies, so the possibilities are endless. Also, I actually didn't use any stamps to make this card, so I hope you all enjoy what I did with them!!!

Products Used
Cardstock: Red, Green and Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium 12x12- Tis the Season

So, I cut my card with the grand labels die, I love how you can make shaped cards with the grand dies, just gives you so many possibilities and I think out of all the label dies this is one of my favorites!!! I also cut all my layers with the die. I adhered the Graphic 45 paper to the nestaboard and edged it with the new Tim Holtz Festive Berries Ink. I added the scor-tape to my red cst and then cut the Noel out, then I applied the glitter. I used the Glue Gloss on the edge of the card and applied glitter. The rest is just putting it together........well I hope you all have a great week!!!.......until next time......

Dylan's Snowflake Christmas Stocking

Hi all, well it's that time's another showcase Monday and I have something I made that would make a great gift!!! Love the new Canvas Corp many great products to use for making those handmade Christmas Gifts!!!! So onto todays post.....................

Products Used

This was sooo much fun to make.....I used the Gesso on the whole stocking, then I stamped the snowflakes with the rock candy and sprinkled on the glitter. Dried it and used the stencil at the top and sprayed it with the denim colorwash. Stamped the snowflakes with versamark and used the white embossing powder on them. Used the espresso colorwash on the ribbon and the alphas, then I used the heirloom gold spray on the alphas to give them some shimmer. Then I added the's too bad the shimmer and the glitter doesn't show up well in the pic.......but it does sparkle!!! Well, that's it for this time........until next time....I hope you all have a great week!!!

So here's how I made these cards......for the Pyramids all you do is follow the directions that come with them. The package makes 4 cards and you have a couple of small tags as well. The 3D part doesn't stand out as much in the pic, but in person you can really see the difference!!! Then I inked up the cream cst for both of the cards with my distress inks and my blending tool. For the tag one I stamped it with the Father Christmas stamp set and my black archival ink, then I sprayed both of them with the Perfect Pearls Mist, they are really shimmery in person, but of course it doesn't show up well in the pic :)....then using my adhesive I mounted them onto the cardstock. That's pretty much it for these cards.......really simple to make and the 3D effect is awesome!!!

Simple Poinsettia Christmas Card

Hi all, I just can't believe we have snow here already :( it's just too soon for the white stuff!!! Oh well, I guess I just have to get used to it.....but I'm hoping for a mild winter!!! Anyways, I did a Christmas card for you today.....and I actually tried to keep it simple this time! So here's what I did................

Products Used:
Cardstock: White and Burgundy
Stamps: Penny Black- Ponsettia Script Background, Tim Holtz- Retro Holiday
Inks: Versamark, Tim Holtz Distress Stains- Aged Mahogany, Walnut Stain, Forest Moss and Antique Linen

So here's how I made this card, I used the Antique Linen on the white cst then I applied the Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain to my stamp and stamped. I love how we can stamp with the Distress Stains....if you haven't tried it yet, you really should!!! Then I sprayed the Perfect Pearls Mist over top to give it some shimmer. Now I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with the Gold EP. Then I outlined the Merry Christmas with my black pen, it really makes it stand out! Then I added my ribbon and the Ponsettia. For the Poinsettia, I used the stains on them to change there colour, then I dried them with my heat tool. That's it for this card.....I hope you enjoyed my Simple Card :)........hope you all have a great week!!!
