Design It Monday ~ {Thanks}

As we count down the last days until Christmas, we don’t want to forget about those thank you cards! I put together this little number with some bits and pieces I had leftover. It all began with a polka dot tag.

After decideding on the placement of the tag, I stamped my sentiment (Thanks stamp set) three times. I had several pine pieces (Oh Christmas stamp set) stamped and fussy cut. I added them to some leftover snowflake die cuts then glued them to the polka dot tag.

My happy little sweet peas (Sweet Pea stamp set) with their sparkly hats became my snowflake centers and focal point. I added them with thick foam dots and love the way they look!

Merry Christmas Mixed Media Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning! Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using the Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set. I love these two stamp sets and since Christmas is around the corner… I thought I’d inspire you with this layout. I had so much fun creating this layout. And I love how joyful and colorful this layout is.

To begin, I sprayed Colorations Sprays all over white cardstock. Once the ink was dry, I stamped several shapes/sentiments onto the cardstock. Then I used my circle punch, star punch and scissors to cut out the images to use for my layout.

I love the little sketchy trees! They are adorable. I added some jewels and a star to one of the trees to make it fun.

I used the “Merry Christmas” sentiment as my title at the top of the layout and then I stamped the “greetings” sentiment onto the little tab to help embellish the photo a bit.

So many embellishments and lots of color on this festive layout. It totally gets me in the mood for Christmas!

Design It Monday ~ {Merry Christmas}

Hi there! I’m back with another Christmas card for this week’s Design It Monday. Today’s card features the Sketchy Christmas stamp set.

I started with the background. Using some paper from my stash, I randomly stamped one of the trees creating my own patterned paper. After adhering it to a cream card base, I added a coordinating panel of striped paper.

My focal image is the same tree, just jazzed up!

I used the scribbly image from the stamp set as a garland.

Isn’t it fun!

I coordinated my sentiment color with my textured layer.

Happy Holidays Layout by Nicole Martel

Hello everyone! Who’s ready for the holidays? Today, I’m sharing a holiday layout I created using the Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set along with some Oh Christmas Bits & Pieces.

To begin, I sprayed Colorations Sprays by Art Anthology onto white cardstock. The Indigo and Peacock Feathers sprays go perfectly with the die cuts. They are very close in colors. A perfect match if you ask me. I used the “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays” sentiment as titles/sub-titles for the layout. I stamped the “Happy Holidays” sentiment on white cardstock using black ink and then I cut the image out using scissors. I used foam squares to pop it up off the page a bit.

I used a few die cuts, enamel dots and puffy stickers from Pinkfresh Studio. The embellishments worked with the color scheme I was working with. I added a few pieces of red because when I think of Christmas,  think of the colors green and red.

Love the little scribble line from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp set. I used it just below sentiments at the bottom.
