Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone!  Rosemary here with a card to celebrate Thanksgiving day.  Thanksgiving is tomorrow so I just had to make a card featuring Hootie the owl.  In honor of Thanksgiving Hootie is sporting a pilgram hat!

My card went together pretty easily because I had already had Hootie mostly put together.   I only had to add his eyes, beek and little feet and he was done.  Then I made his little hat.  I used the little band that is part of the santa hat to create the band around the hat and then die cut the buckle from gold cardstock.   To a little interest I die cut the Checkerboard cover plate die from the same cardstock I used to cut the beek and feet from and then used a circle from the Stitched Dot In and Out circle die set to die cut a circle and then adhered that to my die cut panel.  I die cut the branch from the Spring Birdie die set from brown cardstock, adhered that and then added Hootie using foam tape.  The sentiment from OWL Give Thanks was stamped in VersaFine CLAIR Acorn ink and then adhered the panel to a kraft cardstock base.   Adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.

Eat The Cookie

I love the Horizontal Pinstripe backdrop... it's so cool and love that you can use it for a letterboard look!  I cut mine in black and adhered it to a black base.

The Headline Type and Mini Headline Type Alpha dies are perfect for creating your own sentiments!  Life is short... eat the cookie!

I used the Sweet Gingerbread Add On Die set along with the snowflakes from the Cool Friend Coordinating Die set to give it some Holiday flair.

That's me for today!  This was a fun and easy card and would be great for reproducing multiples.

Merry & Bright

Hi y'all! Shelly, here.
Happy Friday!

Today, I'm sharing a fun and simple Christmas card with you.

I started with making the snowflake, which I used the big snowflake die for along with a bright pink cardstock. I layered the snowflake two times. After, I simply cut the snowflake in half. Easy peasy, right?!...Next, I used the 'merry & bright' die with a gold foiled cardstock and white cardstock. I layered things two times with white cardstock and one time with the gold foiled cardstock, for a total of three layers. Once done, I used some patterned paper for my background on my card base and then added the snowflake and sentiment. That's it. Simple, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Silver and Blue Christmas...

Well... hello and happy Thursday everyone!  Rosemary here and yes... usually I post on Wednesday, but for just this week I'm showing up on Thursday!  I have a slimline card to share today that as you can see from my blog post title is done in silver and blue!  I used one of the new Holiday Scripty Greetings and the poinsettia image from the Elegant Christmas stamp set.

A few weeks ago I posted a card on my blog (see it here) where I stamped, colored and die cut an image from the Dear Daisy stamp set and then used the images to frame up my sentiment.  I really liked how that card turned out and was going to do the same thing with this card, but I sort of ran out of steam when it came to coloring the images.  So I decided to use patterned paper instead.  I stamped all the images on some patterned paper from American Crafts (I had previously used this paper on a cards with a similar look) with watermark ink and then heat embossed them in silver.  I die cut all the images with a die that I have from a previously released set from AJVD that matches the poinsettia image perfectly.  I used some silver textured cardstock to die cut the Slimline Stitched Plaid cover die and then adhered that to light blue cardstock.  Then I got to work adding all my poinsettias to the card front.  Some were adhered flush with Just Glue It adhesive and others were popped up with foam dots.  I then trimmed off the overhanging parts.  The Merry Christmas was die cut from the same textured silver cardstock several times, adhered together and then adhered to the shadow backing that I die cut from heavy weight vellum.  That was then adhered in the center.  I finished off the card with lots of little jewels in silver, light blue and dark blue.  Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of Christmas!

Hello, everyone! Today is AJVD's day for the 25 Tags of Christmas, and I'm so excited! The design team has come up with some incredible projects that we're all excited to share with you!

There are so many incredible companies sponsoring and creating awesome projects, and I feel so honored to be one! Make sure you don't miss a post. Head over to Tracey's blog, she's worked so hard putting this together and it is much appreciated! 

I decided to create a really fun tag featuring the one and only Santa and Mrs. Claus, from my Santa and Friends die set! And the two are under the mistletoe from my Merry Mistletoe die set! I also opted to use a lot of glitter. Elizabeth Crafts has a whole slew of amazing glitters that shine beautifully! I'd recommend checking them out, which you can do here.
