{create it wednesday} More Merry Christmas…

Happy Wednesday Precious Remembrance Shop fans!!  Rosemary here with one last Christmas card using Sketchy Christmas.  I have had so much fun creating different cards using this fun set!!  This time I did manage to make a card that wasn’t the traditional Christmas colors of red and green, lol!!

For this card I used some papers from the BasicGrey Aspen Frost pad and created a snowy little scene.  The snowflake paper was die cut and then a off white cardstock panel was cut using the same rectangle die.  I then die cut that panel using some border dies to create my “snowy” hills.  I stamped the bottom hill with the sentiment and then layered them, popping up the bottom one for dimension.  The trees were stamped on the olive green paper using brown ink (which ended up looking olive!), trimmed out and adhered to the hills.  I added some Ice Stickles glitter glue to create a snowy look on the ground around a few of the trees as well as on the hills and then added the holographic snowflakes to the tops of each tree as a finishing touch.   I quite like how it turned out!!  I’m adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by today… wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Tuesday Ideas: Masked Frame For Your Message

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa, back with one more installment of Tuesday Ideas using before the year ends!  Next week is Christmas and it’s time to get those last minute cards wrapped up and in the mail!  Today, I’m sharing a quick one layer card to help you out if you’re still trying to finish up your creative projects!  Once again, I used the fabulous Sketchy Christmas set!

I masked a diagonal line in green ink and then added a little more shine to it with a green Heidi Swapp Color Shine spritz.  This is shimmery white cardstock, so there is a slight shimmer to the entire card!  Once the masked panel was dry, I simply stamped the tree & sentiment and added the little gemstone star to finish off the design.

Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays!

Tuesday Ideas: Monochromatic Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with another installment of Tuesday Ideas using the Sketchy Christmas set!  This week, I went with a monochromatic design & added simple embellishments.

Silver cardstock is a favorite of mine this time of year and I simply used grey ink on the main image to keep it subtle.  I used the squiggly line image as tinsel and then added different sized pearls as embellishments.  I love the softness of the grey and white together!

Are you feeling like you are ready for the holidays?  If you still have greeting cards to create and send out, try keeping things clean and simple!

Until next time, happy stamping!

{create it wednesday} 3 trees…

Happy Wednesday PRS fans!!!  Rosemary here with another card using the Sketchy Christmas stamp set.  Did you pick up some yummy new PRS stamps this past weekend?   I hope you did!!  Dyane sure had some fantastic deals going on.  I have another Christmas card to share and I swore to myself that I wasn’t going to make another traditional red and green Christmas card, but guess what???  I did, lol!!   I recently purchased pads of Christmas paper from My Mind’s Eye and Pink Paislee.    Alot of papers in both pads are done in traditional reds and greens and since they were within close reach I just had to use them.

I die cut some woodgrain paper from the My Mind’s Eye Sleighbells 6×6 pad as my main panel and a piece of red patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Yuletide 6×6 pad as a mat.  The little trees were cut from the patterned that was found on the reverse side of the woodgrain piece and then adhered to the card.   I added the sentiment in red, a few red sequins and I was done.  Another easy to mass produce Christmas card.

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!

{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.

Tuesday Ideas: Layered Trees

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with another installment of Tuesday Ideas using the new Sketchy Christmas stamp set!

Today, I thought I’d share another clean & simple holiday card idea.

I used two of the tree images in the set, stamping off the two base images before stamping them on the card base.  The center tree was stamped and fussy cut before being popped up with foam dots.  I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment and then simply adhered it to the center tree.  I added snow in the form of clear Stickles and finished the design with a single gold star sequin.  Another simple holiday card that could be easily produced in large numbers for the season!

November will soon be half over and the usual holiday rush will go into effect.  Keeping holiday cards clean & simple really helps when you’re in the midst of all the preparations that go into this time of year!

Until next time, happy stamping!

{create it wednesday}… Merry Christmas

Hello PRS friends!!!  Rosemary here on the blog today.  Are you lovin’ the new Sketchy Christmas stamp set???  I know I am!!   Today I have a card I made using the Sketchy Christmas set and traditional Christmas colors of red and green with a touch of gold.   I used the current sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch so I will post my card there, as well.

I stamped on of the trees from Sketchy Christmas using VersaMark watermark ink, applied some JudiKins Twinkle Pine embossing powder, heat set it and then trimmed it out.  A thin banner was die cut from white cardstock and then stamped with the sentiment in a dark red ink.   To finish off the card I die cut a panel from white cardstock and then two of the smaller panels from mirror gold and dark red cardstock.  The two were adhered together and then adhered to the white panel.  The tree and banner were added along with a wood veneer star that was inked with gold ink.  To make everything pop a bit more I adhered the main panel to a kraft cardstock base.
