Mistletoe Monday 51-2018

Happy Holidays!  Our theme this month is winter holidays.

Here is my card:





This card was so easy to create.  i was too lazy to bust out my tree dies so I used the build a wreath die set I used on yesterday's card to make my trees.  I cut out the branches for the wreath and snipped them into to make a tree.  The snow is white glitter card stock.  The snowflakes are from another unbranded set using light blue, bright blue and white glitter card stock.  I attached them to a silver panel.  If you know me it just needed some bling!  I added clear heat set rhinestones from Silhouette to the center of the snowflakes and scattered over the card.  The sentiment is a die cut from Peachy Cheap.  I used the light blue glitter card stock to create the card base.  Luckily, we don't see snow very often in Mississippi so I probably won't be seeing a white Christmas! ~ Gracie

Clean & Simple Sunday 51-2018

Hello and Happy December!  It's Gracie this week bringing you my fun Holiday cards.  I love Christmas!!!  Today's card is clean & simple (so hard for me to do lol).

Here is my card:





For me this is clean & simple!  I started with a unbranded build a wreath die set and cut each branch three times using green glitter card stock from Co'ordinations.  It was really difficult to place a red glitter brad in the center of nine pieces of glitter card stock!  The sentiment is also an unbranded die from Peachy Cheap.  I cut it from silver glitter card stock.  I popped the wreath on a red glitter card stock panel using Thermoweb dimensional glue dots.  They actually are very thick and very sticky and hold glitter card stock well.  I attached the sentiment with glue.  The panel is attached to a silver glitter card stock base.  It's very simple but I think the glitter gives a big impact! ~ Gracie

Scene It Saturday - 50-2018

WOW! This week went by fast. It's already my last day here as the designer. I hope that I've been able to inspire you in some way.


The theme for December is winter holidays (Christmas, Chanukah, New Years).  For Scene it Saturday, the theme is to create a scene card. 

Here's my card


On a scrap piece of shiny silver cardstock, I added alcohol inks (stream and citrus) with an alcohol ink applicator and felt. I placed a few drops of each color onto the felt and “dabbed” it many times on the shiny cardstock until the cardstock was covered. Once the alcohol inks dried, I used Memory Box Pine Border Background die to die cut the trees. I also die cut the outline with silver shimmer cardstock with Memory Box Pine Border Outline die. Using a glue pen, I adhered the outline to the trees background. I find it very challenging to photograph shiny paper. Here's a close-up where you can see the true colors of the trees.



I found some tone on tone printed paper for the background and stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Color Layering Holly stamp set with Hero Arts Leaf Green ink.

It's been fun to have you here this week. Wishing you and yours, the very best of this holiday season.
