Joy & Cheer

CASEd from Pinterest 🙂

This fun & cheery Christmas card started by using Blushing Bride cardstock as the base. I ran a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock through the embossing machine using the Script 3D EF (149634). I stamped 3 trees from the Tree Angle stamp set (153442) all in Red Real ink. The far left was stamped on Flirty Flamingo, middle on Blushing Bride & the far right on Real Red. Then, each tree was die cut using the coordinating Stitched Triangle dies (152710). The stump of the trees was stamped with Early Espresso ink onto Early Espresso cardstock then fussy cut. ** hint- on the “top” of the stump leave it a little long making it easier to adhere to the back of the tree** I die cut a piece of Whisper White using the largest scalloped from from the Stitched So Sweetly dies (151690). Then popped up the trees using mini dimensionals. Once the trees were on, I adhered it all using dimensionals onto the Pear Pizzazz. For the sentiment, I used Memento black ink onto a ¾ x 2 ½ piece of Whisper White. I adhered the sentiment using just regular glue of choice. For a little bling, I used one of favourite items, Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (147801).

Sadly, Tree Angle is on the retiring list 😦 However, it is on sale for $13.60 🙂 The Stitched Triangle dies are in the annual catalogue & are NOT retiring.

Gnome For The Holidays

I’m keeping with the cuteness factor with these guys!

I started with Basic Grey cardstock. I layered it with Plaid Tidings DSP (153527) cut 3 ¾ x 5 ¼ & Whisper White 1 x 5 ¼, embossed using a retired Decorative Dots EF (133520). Then covered the seem using a ½ x 5 ¼ strip of Basic Grey cardstock. The circles were die cut using Merry Merlot roughly 2 ⅝ circle & Basic Grey die cut using Stitched Shapes (145372). The circles were popped up on dimensionals. The gnome was inked in Memento black ink & coloured using Stampin’ Blends. I “fussy cut” the gnome & popped him up on dimensionals. On his beard, I used Wink of Stella (141897) to give it a subtle bling. For the final touches I added a few Basic Pearls (144219). The sentiment is from the Tree Angle stamp set (153442). In hindsight, I would have embossed the sentiment to make it stand out a little more.
