Are you ready to see my next Christmas Card?  This one is one I REALLY love!!  It uses Stampin’ Up!’s stamp set Alpine Adventure and Lovely as a Tree.  Lovely as a tree is a staple for every stamp room!  And Alpine Adventure has those cool winter designs that can be used for Christmas.

Reaching Out

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a mostly CASE’d from Tracy Elsom.  I loved her card so much I had to make it, I added more layers but other than that it’s like hers!

This cute Octopus is just so stinkin’ cute!!  I changed up the top of the banner, I had this really pretty Blackberry Bliss twine!   You can see her post here.

I popped up the Octopus and sign with Dimensionals so it is super cute in person!

I followed Tracy’s instructions on her blog, I sponged the background with Mint Macaron and then Blueberry Bushel.  Stamped the long seaweed in Tranquil Tide, stamping twice to give more dimension.  I set this aside, and stamped the octopus on Blackberry Bliss cardstock with Versamark and embossed with White.  Sponged OVER the white embossing powder to tint the white.  I used Blackberry Bliss on the bottom and Night of Navy at the Top.  It’s so cool in person!!  After I was sure the base was dry, I stamped the ‘net’ in Versamark and then embossed that with White Embossing Powder.  Be sure if you make this that it’s dry and that you use the Embossing Buddy!  For some reason White EP loves to stick to EVERYTHING!

Thank you so much for visiting me!

Christmas in July Card #4! Plus blog candy

The card for today is one of my FAVORITES!  At least so far!  This is card #4 for my Christmas in July Class!  We will be making 16 cards at one time, or at least at one class!  3 cards each of 5 designs!

Here are the others that I have done up to now:

 

I absolutely fell in love with the ribbon for this card when I first saw it in the Catalog!  BUT, in person it was even prettier!!  Of course I had to use it as soon as I got it!

Here is the front and back of this card:

Super simple, but still sooooooo pretty!  Two ink colors, one stamp set!  The only time consuming part is attaching the sequins to the top of the card…….doesn’t have to be put on if you are in a hurry!

Dimensions:

**********
Card Stock:
Very Vanilla: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″, 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ front with trees

*********

Just stamp the trees and Deer in Chocolate Chip, and the sentiment in  Tranquil Tide for the front.  On the inside I used Chocolate Chip, that’s it!

Sometimes simple is very elegant, I hope you think so too!
