Tuesday Ideas: Color Blocked Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa and I’m back with another clean and simple holiday card idea for you!  Once again, I’m using the beautiful Oh Christmas stamp set.

2016-oct4

I decided to use one of the fantastic sentiments in the set as the focal point and this is what transpired.  I used two different bright colors to create a color block beneath the main panel.  These were mounted on a piece of black cardstock for a little more contrast.  The assembled piece was popped up with foam dots for dimension.  You could use any two colors you wanted and even vary colors from card to card for a wide variety of holiday cards!  So simple and so fun!

October is here and the countdown continues.  I hope you’re getting a head start on your card making and crafting!

Until next time, happy stamping!

{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…

{Create it Wednesday} – wishing you…

Hello PRS fans!!   Christmas is right around the corner!!  I’m here today with my last post using the fabulous new Precious Remembrance Shop set Joy.   I love that the main image in the set is so very versatile.  You can stamp it has a whole image or stamp and trim out portions.  For my card today I did the latter.

I started by stamping the little tree using two shades of green ink (Memento Bamboo Leaves and New Sprout).  After stamping I trimmed out all the little trees and set about creating my scene.  I die cut the little hill and adhered it with foam dimensionals to the white cardstock piece that I had partially embossed with a dotted embossing folder.   I then arranged the little trees on the hillside.  It was at this point I realized I had created a problem for myself.  I had failed to stamp the sentiment before adhering my hillside!   Yikes!!  I knew it was risky to try to stamp the sentiment on a piece of cardstock adhered with foam dimensionals so I decided to stamp the sentiment strip, trim it out and adhered it as you see.    After adhered the main piece to my card base I applied Crystal stickles to the trees, random dots and the hillside.

Thanks for stopping by… I hope you have a truly wonderful Christmas!!

Project Thursday *A Holiday Card*

Hello there!  Happy Thursday!

I’m here this week to share another holiday card with September’s

stamp set – Holiday Wishes

I love the “from our home to yours” stamp that is included in this set.

It is a great stamp to use on projects for sharing your holiday baked

goods or a bottle of wine.

I used a plain Kraft shipping tag with some Bella Blvd holiday papers from

last holiday season (I have a lot of 6×6 Christmas paper pads leftover).

I kept clean lines, added some snowflakes, rustic twine in navy and cream, and

a couple of  little jingle bells!  That’s it!

Thanks for stopping by Project Thursday!
