Nativity- card kit

I was able to create a couple more cards- and they will be the first for my 2022 Christmas card stash : )  I rec'd these foiled images from Lori at SCS (Mybugandi45). 

This DP was in the kit, as well as the gold embossed Peace on Earth sentiment.  Lori sent this kit with a number of foiled nativities. I added gold sparkle cardstock behind the star paper.  

 This red striped card is vellum.  It is layered over a patterned DP that was also in the kit Lori sent to me.  The sparkly joy sentiment is a Lawn Fawn diecut.  I did not have a red to use, so sprayed Dylusions onto white cardstock, then some shimmer spray- once it dried, I diecut it.

Holiday Cardmaking

I sure hope everyone had a Blessed Christmas!!!  I made this slimline Nativity- one of my favorite cards this year!

 I used Blue Distress Oxide inks and SSS Nativity set for the images. 

  For this card- the challenge was to use Holly or Christmas greenery. I reached into my bag of diecuts and pulled out a few for this challenge.  The red circle is a spellbinders, the other dies were rec'd in a card either from a Teapotter or a 'Alpha' friend.  I just love that candle!  I added gold metallic paper behind the flames.  The background is an Alcohol inks on Yupo paper card. 

 I made this card for the Sketch challenge at SCS.  I used DIstress inks on the background and splattered water and black soot ink.  The reindeer by CC designs was watercolored using Distress inks. The background needed something, so I added sentiments to make the background a little more textures.

Silent Night

Over at Jan's Digital Stamps, we are having a Mid-month post for our Monthly challenge.  The challenge is always AG- come join us!

I used a stamp set called Silent Night for my cards. 

For this card, I had to give a try to the new technique making a shaker card. The base cardstock was embossed using a SSS 3D EF, then it was encased in a clear envelope and sequins and clear beads added under it before it was sealed. The images are added to the outside of the acrylic envelope.  The diecut is also from SSS. 

Jans challenges are always AG- come join us!!!

Virtual Stamp Night

I made a couple of cards tonight for the VSN challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. 

I had this image printed and it was trimmer in the Scan and Cut a while back.  It has been patiently waiting for me to create for...a while.  I colored it and added it to a woodgrain DP.  I had a piece of this music tissue paper sitting on my desk, so added it to the background.  
My Mom was quite a gardener (and both of my sisters as well), but I did not get that green thumb!  Mom used to always include a bird in every wreath she created.  I HAD to get this Christmas Wreath at Power Poppy when I saw it, and really enjoyed coloring it.  The sentiment is from Jans Digital images. 

 The 2nd challenge for VSN I completed was a black and white card. I have had this image stamped for a few years as well....  finally got it on a card!  It is by CTMH and the image and diecut are from Picket Fence Studios. The DP is by Gina K Designs. 

Are you ready for Christmas???

CAS Holiday

 I try to do CAS on occasion...and it is a challenge to me!  

 I decided to fine this a try- the challenge was for a tree to be on the card.  So, I inked up the trees from the MFT Stamptember set. I had this burlap deer on my desk, and the sentiment is SSS. I inked on some blue ink for snow drifts and in the sky as well.  I wanted to add more....LOL  But, alas, I stopped and here is my card!

Oh Deer.....!

 I had this gorgeous image by Graciellie Designs is sitting on my desk when I saw the Teapot Tuesday Challenge at SCS and the color challenge as well.  

  The Teapot challenge was for sending smiles and an envelope on your card..... Ok, I may have stretched this one, but the recipient is a young man, so I figured the smile on the face of the deer would pass.....  The colors are used correctly, and the pink is around the deer head.....  I like how the colors were used!  

I hope you are having a fabulous week! Christmas will be here before we know it!!!
