Another Telescoping Card - Stampin Up! - Snow

I just love this technique from the TJ Newsletter.  I used stamps from Stampin Up! and Inkadinkadoo.  I used a crafters workshop mask and glimmer mists to make the background.  I popped up the 100% chance of snow.  I used the masked spellbinders and triple masked glimmers (sort of).  I embossed the Stampin Up! snowflake and added the sentiment.  I colored the snowman with prismacolor pencils.

Framed Nestie Windows - Christmas - Magnolia

         

Two more Christmas cards to share with you using this months TJ newsletter.  The images are from Magnolia colored with copics.  The sentiments are from Stampin Up!  On the second card I added liquid pearls on the scalloped circle and on the tops of the cards.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the bottom of the card. 

On the snowman card I didn't pop it up.  I need to get some more of the foam for this.  I love the look of the technique.

Thanks for looking...13 out of 60 DONE :)

Faux Designer Paper (with a twist) & Vellum Sentiments


These are two cards that I made for my father-in-laws birthday.  They both use the TJ Newsletter technique called Faux Designer Paper (with a twist).  I used distress inks on the grandfather card and Stampin up! inks on the lighthouse.  The stamps for both cards are from Gina K Designs and Stampscapes.  I colored the lighthouse with copics.

Thanks for looking.

Cuttlebug Highlights Christmas - Magnolia


I have some time to spend in my craft room so I am continuing on my Christmas card crusade :)

Here is a card that I made using the cuttlebug highlights technique from the TJ Newsletter.  I used brick distress ink for the background.  I colored Tilda with distress inks.  Of course, my bow easy helped me to make the perfect bow.  Thanks for looking.

Popped Embossing - Distress Inks - Magnolia

I am still working on my Christmas Cards and I am enjoying working with my new coloring medium...Distress Inks. 

The background is from the new August edition of the TJ Newsletter...another great edition ladies.  I used the same distress inks (black soot, fired brick, tattered rose, vintage photo and peeled paint.  I colored Tilda with these distress inks.  I stippled the background green (because I accidentally got some red on my white...oh well).  I blended the fired brick on the scalloped oval background so all the colors went together.

The poinsetta is a doohickey die and clear leaves are both from magnolia.

Thanks for looking..have a wonderful evening.
