A Few More Christmas Cards

I was hoping to have more time to write blog posts about these cards, but the time just flies! So, I am posting them to share with you and because I used my blog as a digital scrapbook of my creations that I will never see again!

I won’t get too much into the details, but here’s a few facts:

•The “HoHoHo” is one of my wood laser cuts that has been painted using Luster Mica Powders!

• The blue “Merry Christmas” is one of my acrylic laser cuts that was colored using alcohol inks.

• I used Lawn Fawn’s Snow Day paper and DCW Heirloom Christmas (one of my all time Favorite Christmas Stacks!)

• The Gold stars that I shot a close up of were not part of the paper. I used one of my trailing stars stencils and mixed Luster Mica Powder with gel medium.

Here’s a little tip: ALWAYS Check the $1.00 stamps at Michael’s and Wal-Mart. I have found some major gems in there that would normally cost $4-5 otherwise.

Thank you for stopping by and have a VERY Merry Christmas!

Little Girl Christmas Card

My thought for this fun Christmas card was to be unconventional and pink! Any of my nieces would love to get this card for Christmas! 

Here’s what I did:
I started off with Tim Holtz Stripes layering stencil and used a palette knife to apply Prima Light Paste onto bare white cardstock.  After drying it about half way, I applied worn lipstick and picked raspberry to a craft mat and spritzer with water. I kept the worn lipstick in the center. I did this twice since there was a lot of bare paper left the first time . Make sure to spritz it really good. Then I die cut a piece of white cardstock with Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles die set. The edges were sponged with picked raspberry.  Then I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods stamp set (which is on sale in our ebay store!). The reindeer that appears to be enamel is actually one of our laser cut wood pieces that has been dipped in a mixture of UTEE, embossing powder , and pigment . I used my melting pot for this. I had to clean up some edges using a Purple Cows hot tool. The reindeer come in a set of 4 in our ebay store. The reindeer was adhered with homemade glue dots and the sentiment was adhered with foam adhesive.  The card is now finished! I hope you enjoyed seeing this Christmas card using unconventional Christmas colors!
