IM49 – Dashing Deer

 

Welcome to the first Inspiration Monday of December! What an awesome photo inspiration we have for you this week…check it out…

I love the rich jewel tones in this picture.  This one was really a challenge for me as I wanted to do a Christmas card and normally with colors like this, I would have done an ornament but don’t have any ornament set.

Here’s what I came up with…

I sort of went with some of the colors, and sort of an animal and then the circles that are part of the peacock feathers.  What can I say…I was inspired!

Here’s the details…

  • Soft Sea Foam – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Soft Sea Foam – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp greeting using Blackberry Bliss, add to card front
  • Soft Sea Foam – 2 1/8 x 3 3/4, run through the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder, add to card front
  • Frosted Floral dsp – Blackberry Bliss print – 2″ circle and 1 1/4″ circle
  • Frosted Floral dsp -Old Olive print – 1 3/4″ circle and 1 1/4″ cirlce
  • Silver Glitter – THREE 3/4″ circles, add all the circles to the card front
  • Shimmery Paper – cut out reindeer, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Blackberry Bliss Faceted Dots to finish it off

Christmas is just around the corner and Create with Connie and Mary has almost come to the end of the Collections from the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Mini! But…we have saved the best for last…Signs of Santa! This is such a cute set and we decided it was PERFECT for not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4…yes, that is right FOUR small 3D tutorials (perfect for craft fairs or a small gift!) for just $10! See all the details HERE!

Don’t forget to head over to Create with Connie and Mary to see Connie’s GREAT project!

Christmas Tags

Time for another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop. This week we are featuring Christmas Tags.  Before you get to the tags…I need to make a confessions.  I had these done, and I was working on this post and when I was doing the recipe at the bottom, I realized the Sweet and Sassy (Heart) Framelits had been discontinued.  So I need to apologize for that.  You can always just substitute a circle if your don’t have these framelits or wait until the Occasions mini comes out…LOTS of hearts in there!

My other apology is that several of these items have been sold out.  We will NOT comment on that!  GRRRR!!!!!

Here’s some general details…

  • Grey Granite – 4 1/4 x 2, punch top using Scallop Tag Topper and corner round the bottoms, stamp greeting using Merry Merlot
  • Joyous Noel – cut out heart (or circle – just slightly wider than tag) for each.  LOVE this particular print!
  • For one cut out the large reindeer framelit in Whisper White for the other stamp the two small reindeer on Grey Granite using Versamark, white emboss, cut out
  • For the large reindeer add to tag, add Star Wire element then a flower in Merry Merlot
  • For the two small reindeer, add the Snowflake Wire element then add the two reindeer using dimensionals
  • Add a piece of the Merry Merlot/Copper Ribbon to the top of each and tie using the Copper Trim.

I just LOVE how pretty these turned out!

And guess what…we have a new collection for you…
