img_3311The CAS challenge on SCS this week is to use things on your card for the letters C-A-S.  So I decided to join the fun!

For my card C is for Christmas, A is for Aqua (pool party is aqua…right?), S is for Silver, Sparkle and Snow!

The little tree is what is ‘left over’ from the tree ornament in the Merry Tags Thinlits…I thought it just made the CUTEST little tree!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 4, run through the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, wrap two pieces of the Silver 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon around panel and add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, stamp merry using Versamark and Silver emboss
  • Cut out the Tree Ornament from the Merry Tags set, carefully add the ‘leftover’ pieces to the panel
  • Punch out 4 Pool Party 1/8″ circles and add to tree
  • Layer onto Pool Party 3 3/8 x 3 3/8 and add to card front using dimensionals

CardClassSleighRideOh…I have a cool card for you today!  Can you believe it?  Christmas  is right around the corner!  WOW!!!  (and equally good for me…school is almost OVER – WOOO HOOOO!!!)

This is another card we did in my November Christmas Card Class.  It really is a simple card but that little bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper (dang…I’ve gone through a TON of this stuff!) really add that ‘just a little extra’.

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 (this is going to be the base to add all your other pieces)
  • Home for Christmas dsp (blue dotted print) – 2 3/4 x 3 1/2, add to top of white panel
  • Cut our houses from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer and sleigh from Pool Party .  I make my pieces longer than what I need and trim off excess.  Add both pieces to the panel.
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, cut out frame using Lots of Labels Framelits.  Add sleigh panel behind this using dimensionals.  Add to card front.
  • Pool Party – 3/4 x 2 1/4, cut into banner, stamp greeting using Versamark and white emboss, add to card front
  • Tie bow in Silver Cording Trim, add to top of frame to finish off.

Welcome to the beginning of the Christmas inspiration of the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop.  For quite a few weeks coming up, each Saturday the design team is going to have a different Christmas theme inspiration!  Our second challenge – make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors!

SatHopNonTraditional

So I’m thinking white, grey and black really aren’t traditional colors…right?  Connie said it was okay…LOL!!!  I love playing with Sleigh Ride edgelits and I think this turned out to be soooo elegant!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/4, run through the Softly Falling Embossing folder, add to card front (I used the ‘back side’ up on this).
  • Silver Glimmer – 2 3/4 x 4 1/4.  NOTE…I cut out some of the Silver Glimmer that is behind where the framelits are.  This made it easier to add the black panel.
  • Basic Black – 2 1/2 x 3 7/8, punch along the top using the Star Border Punch, add to Silver Glimmer panel.  Add to card front.
  • Cut out the house edgelit from Basic Grey, tree edgelit from Smoky Slate, sleigh edgelit from Whisper White.  Add each layer using dimensionals.
  • Basic Black – 1/2 x 2, stamp greeting using Versamark, white emboss, cut into a banner and add to card front.
  • Add Winter Wonderland Embellishment to finish off.

Lighthearted Leaves

gratefulYep…it’s ANOTHER Lighthearted Leaves card AGAIN!  You know…for a set I did not like AT ALL when I first saw the Holiday Mini and that I just got ‘on a whim’, I’m SOOOO enjoying creating with it!

Anyway…I saw that the CASology challenge this time was YOU, I had this idea right away for a card.  Of course it took me until NOW this week to make it but that’s okay…I did get it done and just LOVE the finished look!  Oh…and I should mention…SOOOO simple!

Here’s the details…

  • Hello Honey – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 x 5 1/2, stamp leaf in Hello Honey, the dots in Basic Black Archival, and So Grateful For in Basic Black Archival.
  • Basic Black – 5/8 x 5 1/2, add behind Whisper White panel
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x 5 1/2, add on the top panel, add panel to card base
  • Basic Grey – cut out ‘you’ four times, layer on top of each other, then add to card front to finish off.

Yep…can you believe it?  THAT easy!

CCMC377Happy Thursday everyone!  I just love Thursday…first because it is the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and a fun sketch it is!

The other reason I love Thursday?  I’m FINALLY caught up on my grading from last week!  I always have it as my goal to have everything from the previous week graded by the end of Wednesday and I did it!  LOL!!!

So…for this card I ‘flipped’ the sketch and put the strips on the top instead of the bottom so I would have somewhere to ‘hang’ my ornament!

Here’s the details…

  • Mossy Meadow – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, stamp JOY in the bottom right corner using Mossy Meadow
  • Strips – Mossy Meadow 3/4 x 4, Gold Glimmer 1/2 x 4 1/8, and Mistletoe print (Home for Christmas) 3/4 x 4, arrange the Mossy Meadow and Gold Glimmer strips on the Very Vanilla and trim end.
  • Cut out smallest ornament and ornament top from Gold Foil.  Put piece of Gold Cording Trim through hole in ornament topper, tape ends to back of Mistletoe print, add strip to card front, then strip end.
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Add VERY THIN pieces of dimensionals to back of ornament, add to card front lining up so the ornament top can be added to the top using glue dot.
