Peace, Love, Joy

Back with another Christmas Card today. I love making Christmas cards more than any others! This one works for the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C115  to have snow on your creation, and Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD48)! , to creat a christmas theme project.

The cardstock is Bazzil. The DP is SEI Alpine Frost. The image and verse is from Our Daily Bread Designs 'Sacred Season" (love this set!). I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, and colored the image with Copic markers. I applied a little bit of Stardust stickles to the snow on the branc and some Copper Stickles on the cones. I punched a snoflake out of gold shiny posterboard, and cut white one with a cuttle bug die. I then layerd them and added a gold rhinestone to the center. I finished it off with a flourish cut from the gold shiny posterboard with a sizzix die.

Christmas Blessings

Here I am again with another card to post. 2 in one day. I made this one for the WHAT IF? Wednesday ~ sketch challenge N1611.  Here is the sketch-

 Repeat Impressions Sketch N1611  and here is my card.

I turned the sketch on it's side for this one and made a 7" x 3 1/2" card. The DP is from my Christmas scrap pile, so I'm not sure what it is. The stamps are from Our Daily Bread Designs-Sacred Season. I colored them with light colored Copic markers to look somewhat like watercolor, and added SU iridescent embossing powder to the snow and a little on the pine cones using a Versamark pen. I cut the red background out with Spellbinders Deckled rectangles. For the snowflakes I covered a piece of white cardstock with versamark ink and SU Iridescent Embossing powder and then cut out them out with a Sizzix die, attached with glue dots, then put some white rhinestones in the middle of them. I added some white craft ribbon, then a piece of narrow green ribbon on top of that. Hope you like!

'Tis the Season

This card if for the Card Patterns Sketch challenge #142
Current Sketch                 
Used some Christmas cardstock and stickers a friend gave me. The base, border and embellishment are cut from Bazzil cardstock. The border is cut with a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch, the green piece behind the sticker is cut with Spellbinders decorative labels. I added some Stampendous dot stickers to the label, some white ribbon over the border. Simple, but pretty.

Let it snow. . . .

but not until after this weekend! Going on a scraping weekend retreat with part of my crafting group. Can't wait-should be lots of fun.
I made this card for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday#142-It sparkles, shines and glistens on the landscape. Let’s capture some of that snowy sparkle on our cards or creations!

I've used a conglamorations of companies products on this card!  Mostly because I got my challanges mixed up, so here we go.....
I used a new Our Daily Bread Designs stamp set-Sacred Season-as the focal. Colored it with Copics, added some stardust Stickles for the snow, and some cinnamon stickles on the pinecones. I used the SU ticket corner punch on the corners. I brushed on some gold Perfect pearls around the edges for shine and ran a brown marker around the edges to define it. The swirl is a Sizzix die. The snowflakes are cut with the SU Northern Frost die. I stacked 3 snowflakes, added some stardust gg and a rhinestone. The DP is from Hot Off the Press, a winter pad I got with the last Cardmaking and Papercrafts Mag. The green backing paper is Bazzil.
Here is the inside. I again used the ticket corner punch, scraps of the DP, and little bits of the swirls. The verse is computer generated.
Thanks for looking. Leave a comment, I always like to hear from viewers.
