Holiday Triple Play

Welcome to Triple Play Wednesday!  We are upon that time of year where crafters have to get a move-on to complete (or begin) their holiday gifts, tags, cards etc.  Today I am using the stamp/image set You’re One Cool Friend from Sunsational Stamps to make three different holiday items.

I am IN LOVE with this adorable snowman and his sidekick cardinal, I printed him out three times, colored him in with alcohol markers, added A Wink of Stella to make it glisten.  I colored clear gems with a black alcohol marker to make the snowman’s eyes appear to be coal and added some random highlight dots with a white gel pen.  Finally I fussy cut each one out then moved on to the packaging they were to be added to.
I embossed the gift tag with the polka dot embossing folder in my eBosser and added snowflake sequins for a little extra sparkle.  On the candy wrapper I adhered that fabulous transfer foil that I used a few weeks ago, to do this I put Scor tape along the top and bottom and pressed the foil onto the tape to adhere, then I simply lifted the foil sheet off and voila, a beautiful strip of silver foil to accent the wrapper.

Fun with snow

Hi Crafty friends,

I am shylaashree here today to share an inspiration on Christmas cards.



 For the Card Base - i distressed it with artistry inks and created a dripping effect with my water brush pen. The digi image is watercoloured using Staedtler watercolour pencils and fussy cutted image is adhered to the cardbase using 3D foam tape. Finished it off by adding sentiment, sequins and glitters.
 
Hope you  are inspired! Look forward to what you make for christmas. Link your entries to our challenge  here

Christmas seal


Hey there, I missed my last post, it's been a busy busy few months for me, I can't seem to keep up with things. Days slip by quickly.

Anyway, I pulled out this cutie and gave him a santa hat. I love using every day images for other times.
This is really simple and would be so fun for anyone on your list.
I attached him to the card with an Action wobble to make it more fun!

You Light Me Up

Hello fellow crafters, I am in the process of making about four trillion holiday cards and tags…well maybe not quite that many, but let me tell you it is A LOT.  So with no further adieu, here is today’s holiday card.  I used You Light Me Up set/images by Sunsational Stamps.  I love how “Merry & Bright” these adorable holiday lights are!

You Light Me Up set

I wanted to make another shaker card because they are so dang fun!  This one I watercolored the background with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  Next I stamped the sentiment on acetate with StazOn.  I sponged Evergreen Bough Distress Ink onto the little frame I die cut, then attached the acetate to the backside of the frame then on the watercolor background I made a pile of shaker elements…snowflakes, sequins and large glitter flakes by WOW.  I added foam tape to the back of the frame and adhered it over the watercolor background.  Then I added CTMH thick twine in Fern, making little loop-de-loops and adhering them down with Glossy Accents.  I wanted it to appear like a wonky sting of lights. I printed out the bulb images then cut them out and adhered them to the frame/string.  I glued all that down to a card base that I embossed with a swirly pattern.
I sure hope you enjoyed todays project.  Please visit http://www.sunsationalstamps.com to find this and so many other adorable holiday stamp sets and digital images.  We would love it if you would like us on Facebook and click on the ‘Follow Me’ button so you don’t miss a thing!

Gobble all the Time

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today using this Gobble stamp.  It's so doggone cute!!



Since I wanted some dimension, I stamped it twice and fussy cut one of the images. 


I colored both with images Copic Markers.  Then used glue dots to place the fussy cut image atop the main image.  It gives it just the right amount of dimension.  Then I added ink around the panel before matting it with cardstock.
 

The panel was then added to a striped card.  The phrase was also matted and added to the corner of the card.






Thanks for stopping by today.

A Little Bit of Christmas ....


Hello - it's Helen here today to share a little bit of Christmas inspiration with you.

I've made a card using the very cute 'Snowman 1' digi - isn't he a cheerful looking guy?!

I coloured the image with Promarkers and added some glitter glue to his hat.  The sentiment I've used is a peel off.

Keep checking back here for more inspiration from the Design Team and I'll see you later in the month with some more Christmas inspiration.
