Merry Christmas! I hope you all have a wonderful day with families and friends.
Just one more Christmas project to share with you....
I had an order for some larger gift card holders and these are what I came up with. I used the Deck the Halls designer series paper as the focus and added pearls and crystal effects which are actually difficult to see on the pictures.
An inside view, on the right side is the pocket
A couple more of the front designs.

I made some quick and easy packages for preschool teacher gifts that I thought I would share.
These brown paper bags are not the ones in the Holiday mini catalog because I needed something a little bigger so I just used ones I bought at the store. The Deck the Halls designer series paper is cut to 3 1/2 X 5" and then I added a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments and a bow with the Deck the Halls fabric and added the pearls.
The tag is a 2 1/2" circle cut from Cherry Cobbler and then I ran it through the Vintage Wallpaper impressions folder. I added an ornament from the Delightful Decorations stamp set with dimensionals and then attached it to the bag.

I used Crumb Cake for the base of the card and Whisper White and Bashful Blue card stock for the rest. The inks are Bashful Blue and Night of Navy and I added some hemp twine and anvintage trinket. The background behind the flower is done with block stamping and the stamp set is Because I Care.

Another card with the Celebration theme for our Late Night Stampers this week.
I used the Deck the Halls Designer Series paper and Designer Fabric, Antique Brads, Glass glitter and crystal effects to add some fun elements to this card. The designer series paper is so pretty you can make a lot of cards without adding too much and they still look great!

The paper and punch are going to be available in the upcoming Mini catalog that will be available January 4th. Love Impressions Specialty Designer Series paper and the Be my Valentine stamp are the items from the Occassions Mini catalog used on this card.

This is my Digital Challenge page for my Soul Scrappers challenge this week. I decided to do a challenge that might be less time consuming since everyone is extra busy this time of year. I used a premade layout and just added my pictures, colors, embellishments, etc.

This is my first sample for our Late Night Stampers Challenge for this week of Celebrations. It is our 100th challenge :)

I am so honored to once again be a Guest Designer for a session of UStamp with Dawn and Friends. We will have 40 projects and tutorials from some fabulous designers so you won't want to miss it!
For this session of UStamp with Dawn and Friends we were asked to find a new friend online and pick them as our free pass winner. We were told to look at samples and find one that we really liked and invite the person who created it to be our winner. I chose Maureen Merritt because I really liked this card that she had posted on her blog.
This is just a simple card I put together using the Friends Never Fade stamp set. I added some dimension with the Vintage Wallpaper impressions folder and also used some crystal effects and glass glitter on the stamped image.
There are some basic pearls and Early Espresso 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon to add a little extra and a strip of Jolly Holiday designer series paper as well.

I went with a simple layout and the Lap of Luxury paper for our scrapbook pages this month. The card stock colors are Very Vanilla, Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink and Concord Crush.
I used the same colors and technique for this card as I did for an earlier post this week. The altered paper is made with bubbles and reinker and the silver on the base is alcohol mixed with the Platinum shimmer paint.
I might decide to add some texture to the white portion of this card before we meet, it seems a little too plain right now...
Tuesday, December 7, 2010
I had a couple leftover butterflies from the mini album I showed you a couple days ago and used them on this card along with a quote from the Occassional Quotes stamp set. The designer paper is from the Lap of Luxury package.

I made this card as a thank you for my secret pal at the PRBC stamping retreat the weekend before Thanksgiving. The colors are Very Vanilla, Pink Pirouette, and Cherry Cobbler.
I adhered all but the stamped layer and then used the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots impressions folder. The image is colored in with blender pens and then a little extra color on top with markers. The stamp set is the hostess set Fast and Fabulous.
This week at Late Night Stampers, we have a challenge to use only White, Blue and Silver on a card. On this one, I altered my glossy white card stock with bubbles and reinkers and then added a silver embossed image called Extreme Snowboard. Then tore some whisper white card stock and added it to look like layers of snow. On the edges I added crystal effects and White Chunky Glitter and then heated it up, partly to dry it and partly to pop it up a little.
Here is a closer look at the snow.

I used a sketch from the Diva Coffee Break Designs blog for this card.
The middle portion of the card cork that I stamped on with Basic Black classic ink and then added basic pearls as accents. The designer series paper is Love Letter and the other colors are Riding Hood Red, and Basic Black.
Another one of Mary Jo's sketches in combination with Just Add Ink's "just add critters challenge for this card.
I used Not quite Navy, Pacific Point and Whisper White card stock, Blueberry Crisp Designer Series paper and the Dasher stamp set. There is glass glitter on the antlers adhered with Crystal Effects and a library clip and silver brads along with some retired silver ribbon.

My technique challenge on Soul Scrappers right now is Photo corners. I thought it would be something simple enough that even though everyone is busy with the holidays there would be time to play!
This page has three different types of photo corners, the one on the left uses the photo corners punch; the one below uses basic pearls; and the bottom one is made with ribbon and brads.
The possibilities are endless as to what you can use for photo corners!
