Design It Monday ~ {A Bit of Christmas!}

Hi there friends! I hope those of you from America enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend! I’m here to officially begin my holiday season with a bit of Christmas. I remember being a child, looking at snow globes and all things Christmas captured in a glass jar or under a dome. As I held it in my little hands close to my face, it seemed it was a bit of Christmas captured for eternity.

With that memory I set out to “capture” one of the trees from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set in the large jar from the Oh So Fun Stamp Set. The card begins with a white card base layered with a vellum die cut panel and then the die cut patterned paper panel. The jar was stamped and trimmed out. Next came the tree in a light pink ink.

To create a garland on my tree, I used the stitched line from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set. It was heat embossed with gold powder as was a second lid for the jar. The lid and the jar are both popped up. Small sequins decorate the tree along with a tiny glittered wooden star.

And there you have it, a bit of Christmas to hold onto for eternity! Thanks so much for visiting!

Gift Tag for Christmas by: Jen Mitchell!

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone I’m feeling the pressure to get my Christmas gift tags done!  Today I’ve this nice square tag with lots of white space to show off these images.  I stamped a sketchy tree first in a bright aqua color then stamped over it with another tree in a dark, mossy green.  I added a few sequins and the sentiment in red to complete the classic Christmas color scheme.

Tuesday Ideas: Simply Merry Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with another Tuesday Ideas post!  This week, I’m sharing another idea using the wonderful Sketchy Christmas stamp set!  As usual, I tried to create a clean and simple design.

I used a stencil to create a dotted background & then spritzed the panel with green for some added shimmer.  I stamped the beautiful sentiment on a piece of coordinating silver cardstock and layered it on top of the main panel.  I popped up the assembled panel with foam dots for dimension.  Green sequins & clear gemstones were added as embellishments and I was done!  You could use a variety of colors and shapes on the main panel!  I love the mix of fonts in this particular sentiment!  It really works perfectly as a stand alone on a card!

I hope you’re feeling prepared for the upcoming holidays!  It always seems like they arrive so quickly and then the new year is here before we know it!  Enjoy!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Merry Christmas Tag by: Jen Mitchell!

I love to use non-traditional colors on my Christmas projects sometimes so today I’ve made a gift tag using some shades of pink.  I started with a base of kraft and white then stamped a sketchy tree a couple of times in a vibrant pink.  Then I glammed it up a bit with some shimmery golden ink for one more tree plus the sentiment.  A little gold cord tied around my seam binding ribbon ties all those gold touches together nicely.

{Inspire Me Friday} Clean and Simple Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s time for my next  {Inspire Me Friday} post using the new release set, Sketchy Christmas.  I sure hope you have gotten your hands on this set because I am LOVING it!

I don’t know what it is about the simple triangular tree image in this set, but I can’t resist paper-piecing with it!  It is such a great way to use up scraps of Christmas paper in my stash, and it couldn’t be easier to fussy cut!

I stamped the main sentiment, then stamped the trees above it.  After paper-piecing the trees, I decided to add another smaller sentiment from the “Oh So Fun” stamp set…isn’t it perfect for Christmas, too?  I think so!

A strip of black and white washi tape finished off this clean and simple card…easy to make and easy to mail!

I hope you enjoyed my card…thank you so much for stopping by today!

{create it wednesday}… More Merry Christmas!

Happy Wednesday Precious Remembrance Shop fans!!  Rosemary here with another card to share using the Sketchy Christmas stamp set.  I am obviously in a traditional red and green Christmas card mood, lol!!  Some of that has to do with the fact that I’m trying to use what I find close by in my little crafty area and one of the things I found was a piece of polka dot patterned paper in an olive green color.    I grabbed a piece of red and white patterned paper, some inks in corresponding colors, some dies and I was ready to create.   The layout is based on the current Sweet Sunday Sketch so I will be posting my card there.

The sketch is pretty straight forward.   I layered up the patterned papers on my white cardstock card base and then after die cutting the white circle stamped the tree.  A little sequin snowflake was added to the top of the tree.   The sentiment strips were stamped in red ink, trimmed out and adhered to the tree.  A little bit of Diamond stickles was added to the base of the tree and dots added to the tree for a bit of sparkle.  Super simple and easy to reproduce in other color schemes.

Thanks for stopping by today…

Design It Monday ~ {Polka Dot Trees!}

Hello and welcome to another Design It Monday! Today’s card features the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set once again. This time I used the triangle tree on some patterned paper. Polka dot trees in red, cream, and aqua…yes please!

After stamping the trees on the DP, I trimmed them out then added them to the die cut doily. The center tree is popped up for added interest. This was popped onto a vintage cream card base wrapped with twine. Love the double bow! I stamped the little arrows on the end of the sentiment for something fun and unexpected. Speaking of the sentiment, Dyane’s double font is fantastic and I love the long tail on the end of the “s”!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. The ever sweet Rosemary will be back on Wednesday with something extra special to share I’m sure!

Merry Christmas by Jen Mitchell!

I am really loving the sketchy trees in this set.  They are perfect for doing some stamping off which is exactly what I did with my card.  I chose a traditional green color and stamped the tree once to get the deeper color image then immediately stamped the tree again to give the softer tree in the background.  This sentiment, which reminds me of a label maker, is perfect for hanging off the edge of my layers.  I added sequins and some snowfall in the background because what Christmas tree design is complete without some snow?
