So nice to have you stopping by today. I always enjoy your comments and emails. Today, I have a card for the CAS-ual Fridays Knotty or Nice Challenge. We had to make a project that had a knot or knots on them.
I decided to go with a winter/snowman, I mean snow- WO-man, theme so I could have another card to send out this Christmas season. I started with a white card base. I covered that with patterned paper. For my snowwoman, I punched three sizes of circles from DCWV's, the Home Spun stack. I love the texture of this cardstock and I thought it added a little depth to my card. As you can see, my 'knots' are in the ribbon arms and hair ribbon.
To make the sentiment, I cut apart some of my stamps to get the words I wanted for this card. Yes, I know, it seems sacrilegious to cut stamps up, but it really was not all that bad once I made the first cut. LOL
The buttons are sticker ornaments that I already had on hand. I put them on in an arc to give my snowwoman a more feminine shape.
There's still a little time to join in the fun. Check out the details here: http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/2012/12/cfc81.html I will also be adding this card to Paper Crafts December Gallery Challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by again. This week CAS-ual Fridays challenged us to make gift tags. I love this challenge because it makes me make nice tags for my Christmas gifts. Thanks CAS-ual!
I love blue and white for Christmas projects! I cut my tag from cardstock and scored an 1/8th inch line on all sides of the tag. I stamped the sentiment and the snowflake around the hole at the top with white pigment. I stamped and fussy-cut three poinsettias. I adhered maroon gems at the centers and attached the blooms with foam tape. I slipped on matching maroon ribbon at the top. I almost always decorate my punched holes on tags. I think it adds such a nice touch.
Wishing you all a merry Christmas!
I just added this tag to Paper Crafts December Gallery Challenge too.
I created this card for the Keen on Neon Holiday Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Cath really had me thinking on this one, but I had fun! Here's my neon green and orange Christmas card.
I remember fondly Grannie's silver Christmas tree. I'm sure you all have memories of those shiny trees. Well, I loved her tree. She had a color wheel she would sit underneath the tree. When she turned it on, gorgeous color shafts played through the branches! So of course, I had to create a silver tree on my card. I used silver pigment with kaleidoscope powder to heat emboss the tree. Then, I hung neon green and orange ornaments on my tree. I also heat-embossed the sentiment using neon orange pigment and kaleidoscope powder for more spakle. I made the 'star' at the top with left over 'V's from an alphabet sticker sheet.
Grannie would have loved my tree. I miss her very much.
Do you have an idea using neon? There is still plenty of time to join in the fun. Check out the details here: http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2012/11/the-keen-on-neon-challenge.html
There is a fun challenge going on in the Moxie Fab World over at Paper Crafts. Cath issued a challenge to make Holiday cards, gift tags, etc. using neon colors. I created these gift tags a little while back. They are neon orange and dark turquoise. Who says you can't use non-traditional colors for the season? In fact, that really appeals to the rebel in me. I have another contribution coming up shortly.
I used Fiskars stamps and crimper to make these tags.
There's still time to join in the fun if you have an idea to add to the collection. Check out the details here: http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2012/11/the-keen-on-neon-challenge.html
