Olde Tyme Christmas

Hey Guys!

Easy and Fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card to wow your friends and family! Stamping, tearing & sponging is all it takes to make this beautiful card!

Today I am sharing with you an Olde Tyme Christmas Card! This handmade card uses the NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Snow Wonder. This will wow your friends and family! First, when stamped the image has a lot of hash marks and that, to me, looks like it is an Old Fashioned drawing. Second I tried to emboss it with white and see what it looked like…..not so great! The hash marks made it all bunch up and it had no definition.

As a result, I then tried it in Early Espresso and WOW that looked so good! Colored the carrot, hat and scarf with my Stampin’ Blends, using light colors. As long as I used light colors it didn’t take away from the Olde Tyme Christmas look. Since I was making it look older I tore the paper (after stamping everything else) and sponged Early Espresso on the edges!

EAsy and Fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card
Easy and fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card

Since I colored the scarf with Bashful Blue, I thought pulling in that color would be pretty on the ribbon in the corners. So, I colored the ribbon with a Bashful Blue Dark Blend, popped up the image on a piece I stamped with Buffalo Check and wrapped it on the corners. In the same vein, did you notice that I used an antique slide on the ribbon at the top?! I think that added a more Olde Tyme feel to it! To sum up, for the base I used more of the Bashful Blue to pull it all together! What do you think?

Who doesn’t love a Palm Tree!?

Hey Guys,

First off, I want to thank you for sticking with me. I haven’t always been consistent with my blogging, but I HAVE been consistent with my classes. If you would like to do any of my classes let me know, I love to make cards and decorations and would love to have you join me!

Second, the card I am going to show you today is one that I somewhat cased (which means that I saw a card, loved it but changed it up just a little), this one was inspired by Michele Zindorf. She is very awesome but not everyone can do what she does, so I try to bring it down to what I would hope with some guidance anyone can do! Here is her card:

My card is one that fits in a regular envelope, that was my main objective……make this card, but have it fit into an envelope I have.

What I love about her card is that you really get to see the basket weave background, since I had to make mine smaller you get a hint of that!

Here is my card:

Not sure if I have told you this in the past, but my husband has a virtual tropical paradise in our yards, here in North Carolina! I grew up in SoCal, we and go to Disney World all the time and we both love how tropical it is. So, of course I naturally gravitate towards tropical stamps…..this one REALLY called to me! I hope you love how this came out as much as I do!

Here is the inside of this card:
