Jolly Christmas

Jolly Christmas 3Oh my word…I just LOVE this little set!  Okay… really LOVE this little reindeer!

I wanted to play around some with this set and thought how cute it would be to make the reindeer into “Rudolph” and I pretty much wanted to keep it pretty simple overall.  I have to say I like hte way it turned out!

I think just the simple embossed reindeer and the greeting is perfect!

Here’s the details…

  • Kraft – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Real Red – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add to card front
  • Kraft – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Softly Falling embossing folder, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp reindeer using Versamark on Kraft, white emboss, cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Real Red – 1/2 x 2 1/8, stamp greeting using Versamark, white emboss, cut one end into a banner and add to card front using dimesnionals.
  • Use White Gel Pen to add some ‘snow’ dots.
  • Add a Winter Wonderland Embellishment to banner to finish off.

Now I have to tell you…I had SOOOO much fun making this that I wanted to make some more using this cool set.  So I started looking around and the Create with Connie and Mary September Mini Session just opened.

As I was looking the great projects (3 cards sets and 2 3D projects) I was looking at the card set Deb Currier made using the Haunt Ya Later set.  I thought…wow..those cards would work really get with the Jolly Christmas set.  So I decided it would be fun to remake 2 of her cards using my set (so taking a Halloween set and making it Christmas!)

grpNow unfortunately I can’t show you the full cards I made…only our subscribers get to see those (and the full tutorial for making them). But I did think it would be fun to show you the snippets of them!   All I can say REALLY CUTE!!!

Lighthearted Leaves

Lighthearted Leaves SUO131Oh it’s time for another SUO challenge and this time it is Get Well cards!

As I was going through what I had in the way of Get Well greetings, I didn’t have much from which to pick but found this good one (hiding on the bottom of another one!).  Then I was looking at the Lighthearted Leaves set (sitting on top of my desk) and I noticed THIS stamp looked like trees too so I just HAD to make them into it.  (Check out this post for a different leaf used as a tree.)

So anyway…here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, use Old Olive Marker to make ‘swishes’ for the ground under the trees, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp the leaf/tree on Whisper White using Basic Black Archival, color using Old Olive, Delightful Dijon and Rich Razzleberry markers, cut out, add one directly onto card front then the other using dimensionals.
  • Mask out part of the stamp, ink using Basic Black Archival ink, stamp on Delightful Dijon 1/2 x 2 1/2, cut into banner on both ends and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some Rich Razzleberry Candy Dots to finish it off.
