Still more to go...I have the pieces all cut and will assemble (glueing/glittering) the rest while watching the Hallmark Channel tonight. Hard to get a good picture so may try again. Even harder to find the battery operated tea lights right now.
Fun day making some new cards...Loving the shaped edge of this card. I added large rhinetsones for the berries to make it sparkly for the holidays. I used a Tim Holtz holiday word die (Merry Christmas) in red and a great santa list tag to pop the large ivy off the background paper. The holly doodlebug paper was in my stash and was perfect to mimic the design and colors. My holiday cards are underway !!!!
I went with a glittery paper for the chipboard reindeer. I tied the bow to close the card around the deer's neck I added a separate twine bow with a jingle bell. This is the 2014 Tim Holtz reindeer die and the word "noel" and snowflake were other dies new last holiday season.
The colors of the paper are a sage green, lt blue, and ivory.
This was my first try with this style card. I would not recommend to heavy cardstock as it doesn't lay as flat. So, I made it work by adding a band instead of ribbon that slides off.
Great to put an ornament or gift tags inside for the receiver.
Getting my Christmas cards ready for this year... I added some glitter to the black jingle bells and his shiny nose. What a fun reindeer card this was to try. We made several cards today so stayed tuned for other pictures soon.
Spellbinder frames and a dollar store wedding dress treat box that I jazzed up.
I love you swings out of the way so the strip flips up to reveal spaces for more photos on the back.
The Anna Griffin cartridge has some great items to die cut. I used my silhouette to create the frame card that flips open for a photo mat that holds photos inside. Each page of the book also has a flap (Martha Stewart border punch for the edge) that flips up and pulls out to reveal and interior 8 x 8 page for photos.
A paper doily, yellow paper rose (Anna Griffin cartridge), a pocket I created with a stamped image and some silver dazzles to bring it to life. I found some perfect K & Company Wedding chipboard stickers.
The groom pocket was again from the dollar store favor boxes. I cut the back off to create a pocket. I added some tags, pull out frames here.
This yellow frame slides up and off a belly band. Photos go inside and underneath on the white frame. I used an Anna Griffin metal die to create a top for the frame and some rhinestones to make it sparkle.
A place to show off the toast... Our Wedding - the yellow satin ribbon unties, lifts up, & unfolds for a pull out that has photo's for both sides.
Wine glasses with green sequins to make the bubbles...
This paper pad is all silver, white, green, yellow and black. Green doilies from Michaels.
Unwind the bakers twine to open the doors to an interior frame area with flowers. The cake paper here is from a different paper line but fit perfectly with the theme of the page.
My cake page ! Each layer is a pocket for photos. The flowers are the tabs for each layer. I got the green flowers at Michaels -3 colors in one package on darker than the other. I added a border punch and then blinged it up with the black mesh rhinestone strips that come on a roll.
The waterfall photo area. Each layer lifts up for photos. A wood bouquet painted white from Michael's. This paper has lots of silver glitter, and glossy black areas to it.
Stamped Memories and chipboard "Our rings".
A mixture of flowers with pearl spray. The largest is a set from Prima.
A small set of rosebuds tucked in from I am Roses. My last ones so am ordering more. Off to the post office....
Something new....Tim Holtz new ink color called Cracked Pistachio (so pretty) and a new paper company for me to try called Trimcraft.
Really liking these metal word dies (Penny Black-Hugs, Kisses, and I Love You) in one package and Impression Obsession in the other. They are small and perfect for cards or scrap pages when you don't want to fight with a machine to die cut these.
Some papers are double sided and some are not. Some have a shimmer and a few had a touch of gloss. Great for shabby chic look or garden tea.
Pretty for bags, boxes or cards.
They are a nice heavier weight paper. Will let you know how they fold....
