Sparkle Card

Happy Monday all!  Today I am taking a break from holiday creations to bring you a fun birthday card I recently created.  All the patterned papers are from Craft Smith's Stay Magical paper pad.  The iridescent foiling on the gemstone paper is so pretty!
It was really quite simple to create, simply cutting the patterned papers the sizes I wanted and matting them with dark gray cardstock.  The sentiment panel is popped up with foam tape.  The scalloped layer was cut using GMD scalloped rectangle die.  I embellished with various self adhesive rhinestones that matched the colors of the papers.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Christmas Gable Box

Hello all!  Today I am posting for the Trendy Twine blog with this great gable box that would be perfect for giving a small gift or baked goods for Christmas.  It is embellished with  Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine, our featured twine for December.
I started with a Small Gable Box and covered the sides with paper and stickers from DCWV's Red & White Christmas stack.  I glued Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine around the front panel and Frosted Cranberry Sequins in the bottom right corner.
To dress up the top of the box, I made a bow using more patterned paper and a Stampin Up! bow punch and adhered it just under the handle of the box.  I then added the tag that was made with Large Metal Rim TagCandy Cane Trendy Page Dot, a sentiment from APB Merry Christmas stamp setFrosted Cranberry Sequins, and tied with Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine.  The snowflakes are more stickers from the previously mentioned paper stack.

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Laurel Wreath Impossible Card

Good morning to all my crafty friends!  Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I am sharing my version of the SVG Attic Laurel Wreath Impossible Card.
These cards are quite simple to make, once you realize how they are made!  Jodi has a great tutorial HERE if you get stuck.  I used patterned papers from DCWV's Red & White Christmas stack and solid papers from DCWV's Flipside Christmas stack.  The leaves are inked with dark green chalk ink and the embellishments include an organza bow and red Stickles.  I used Scotch tacky glue to assemble the card.
 I added a stamped sentiment from the APB Merry Christmas stamp set.  Now it is ready to send to someone special for Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

SumMore Fun Monthly Challenge #2

Good morning and welcome to SumMore Fun's monthly challenge!

All entries should be placed in the album labeled Monthly Challenge #2 in this group which can be found by clicking the link above.  This means even if you don't have a blog you can now join in!!

On to our second monthly challenge:
This month's theme is Christmas Crafts

My inspiration card uses the Victorine Originals Swirl Christmas Tree stamp and Christmas Wishes stamp.
The tag was die cut out of white cardstock and I stamped the Swirl Christmas Tree stamp using Sparkling Unicorn Spit in Lavish Lovebirds.  I simply took a paintbrush and painted the Unicorn Spit onto the stamp, then stamped it onto the tag.  Check out the beautiful shimmer and watercolor-like look it has!  To finish off the tag, I blended Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink around the outside and tied Cherry Latte Trendy Twine at the top.
The patterned papers are from The Paper Studio's Rustic Noel paper pad.  I added 3 colors of burlap ribbon behind the tag to add to the rustic feel of the card.  The Christmas Wishes sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white powder.  I added red Stickles to the tree and corners of the card for a little extra sparkle.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
