Candy Cane Kitty

Hello, everybody!  Today I'm sharing another holiday card!  This one features the adorable Candy Cane Cat from Your Next Stamp, which I coloured with markers, fussy-cut, and popped up on foam tape. I also added Frosted Lace Stickles to the kitty's hat pompom and trim.  Sorry I haven't been around visiting your blogs lately but I hope to get caught up this weekend!  

Behind the kitty are stencilled snowflakes, made using embossing paste through a snowflake stencil (Hot off the Press Snowfall).  I did some paper-tearing with scraps of patterned paper on the left-hand side and then stamped a sentiment at the bottom right from Your Next Stamp Holiday Snow Globe.  Lastly I adhered three pink snowflake sequins.

Guest Designer - Christmas Craft Creations Reminder

Hello, everyone!  This month I have been guest designing for Christmas Craft Creations so I'm back to share another card featuring our June theme of Trees.  I hope you will be inspired to join our challenge!  

I made a fun snow-globe shaker card!

Here are the products I used:
Die:  KSCraft Designed by Rex Snow Globe
Stamp: Poppystamps Holiday Hoopla
Ink:  Lawn Fawn Peacock
Patterned Paper: Whimsy Stamps Blurry Flurries
Other:  Sequins and snowflake sequins

I die-cut the snow globe from various scraps of cardstock and paper-pieced together into a shaker card.  I added lots of sequins and snowflake sequins inside the shaker and adhered three die-cut snowflakes on the outside of the shaker acetate.  I tore a scrap of white cardstock and adhered it to the patterned paper to create a snowy scene and then adhered the shaker element.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment.

Thank you to Christmas Craft Creations for inviting me to be your Guest Designer!  I had fun!

June Guest Designer - Christmas Craft Creations

Hi, everybody!  I'm happy to announce that I have been invited as a Guest Designer at Christmas Craft Creations for June!  Yay!  Our theme for the month is Trees, so I hope you can join us!  If you would like to view the challenge rules, they can be found on the sidebar here.

I made a set of three cards! 

I chose an older digital image from my stash called Winter Tree from Gingerloft (no longer in business).  I digitally changed the colour to blue, grey, and light blue and added a holiday sentiment beneath the image (Beccy's Place Christmas Blooms).  Using my paper trimmer I cut each image, along with the sentiment, into a rectangle and then rounded the corners.  

For the background I used Memory Box 3-D Embossing Folder Snowy Forest on white cardstock.  To create a snowbank that coordinates with the tree image, I tore some scraps of white cardstock and adhered.  The tree/sentiment panels are popped up with foam tape, and I added lots of glitter on the tree boughs. Below is a close-up so you can hopefully see the sparkle a bit better.

Please head over to Christmas Craft Creations and join our challenge!
