Prince of Peace

 



Hi Friends!

Merry Christmas weekend!  This week we are continuing to share Christmas cards on the Stamp Simply blog. 

This card was quick and easy- perfect if you need a the last minute card or, like me at times, are still creating cards, lol!  



The main image is from The First Noel 6x6 paper pad by Echo Park. This pad has so many wonderful images and sayings- perfect for the true meaning of Christmas! 



The background panel was embossed with the Sizzix Lumber Embossing Folder (it is hard to see this in the background) and the leaves were die cut with the Floral Clusters and Sprigs Die. 

The card was finished off with a red seam binding bow and champagne rhinestone in the center of the star.



If you have not had a chance to check out my Sister DT cards yet, I hope you will do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

Thanks again for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

TCC#202 King of Kings



Hi Friends!

Welcome to our new #202 {Christmas Cheer} Challenge at the The Card Concept!


Check out this gorgeous inspiration photo!
  I love the d├ęcor, the red and white as well as the beautiful pillows.  I was inspired by the colors and theme for my Classy and Elegant/Clean and Layered card/

We are looking forward to seeing what inspires your card! Will it be the overall theme, the colors, items in the photo/textures or something else?

If you have not already visited us at The Card Concept, I hope you will find the time to do so.  Gorgeous inspiration from the rest of my DT sisters! 

This was a quick and fun card to create:

On a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of white cardstock, de-static the panel and ink up the script block image from Jesus (Stamp Simply) with Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.



Score below and above the stamped and embossed image (it is hard to see this in the photo).  I actually scored the panel and scored too vigorously, lol, so I had to score another panel, trim the embossed image and adhere it to the second panel, oops!!



Trim the entire background panel to approx. 4” x 5 ¼”, mount onto a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of red cardstock.

Add a strip of red seam binding ribbon, wrapping the ends behind the panel and adhere to a white card base.

On another piece of white cardstock, ink the poinsettia image from the Floral Clusters- Winter Poinsettia stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.



Watercolor the poinsettia with distress inks and die cut with the coordinating die.  FYI- I also die cut another poinsettia out of plain white cardstock to layer behind the stamped image (this gives the image more stability for mounting onto the card front).

Mount the die cut poinsettia with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Floral Cluster- Winter Poinsettia, Jesus (Stamp Simply)

Inks/Mediums: Versafine Onyx Black,  Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink, Distress Inks- Candied Apple, Ripe Persimmon, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough

Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White, Real Red



Accessories/Tools: Gemini, Jr., Stamp Simply Dies- Floral Clusters and Sprigs, Embossing Powder Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Red Seam Binding, Scoring Tool, Waterbrush




Thanks again for taking the time to visit! I hope you are inspired to create a card and join us for our #202 {Christmas Cheer} Challenge at The Card Concept!  

Maybe if you have the time, you could create a few cards.  The deadline to play along is Monday, January 8th at noon EDT.

Quick Christmas Cards

 



Hi Friends!

This week we are continuing to share Christmas cards on the Stamp Simply blog



I decided to create another set of easy Christmas cards using the Studio Light Sending Joy 6x6Paper Pad.  I love this paper for quick Christmas cards- just a reminder, this paper pad has been discontinued so once it is sold out at Stamp Simply, it will not be available again. 



If you love this paper as much as I do, buy it now before it is too late!  You can create at least 60 quick cards (if not more) from this one paper pad!

Once I trimmed each piece of the designer paper to approx. 3 ¾” x 5” and distressed the edges, I used an embossing powder tool to de-static the paper before heat embossing the sentiments with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossing powder.



I paired the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak image with an embossed sentiment from the Merry Christmas stamp set, distressed the edges, mounted the panel onto black cardstock before adhering to a white card base.  

So quick and easy, plus flat for mailing!



For the pine tree snow scene card, I heat embossed the sentiment from Christmas Peace, added the
May Arts ⅝” Sage Twill Ribbon and 1.75” White Venise Gabriella Lace  (wrapping the ends of the ribbon behind the panel) before mounting onto black cardstock and adhering to a white card base.

Again, this card was easy with just a bit of elegance added with the ribbon/lace and still fairly flat for mailing :-)

If you have not had a chance to check out my Sister DT cards yet, I hope you will do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

Stamp Sets: Christmas Peace, Merry Christmas (Stamp Simply)

Inks/Mediums: Versafine Onyx Black

Cardstock/Paper: White, Black, Studio Light Sending Joy 6x6 Paper Pad

Accessories/Tools: Distressing Tool, Embossing Powder Tool, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, May Arts ⅝” Twill- 30 yd spool- Sage, Venise Lace- Gabriella- 1.75” White

I enjoy playing along with online challenges and will be linking the Rose- Breasted Grosbeak card to the Sparkles Christmas #155 December Animals or Birds Challenge.

Die cut the image with the Floral Cluster die (I also die cut another one from white cardstock to layer behind the embossed image). 

Heat emboss the sentiment from the Snowflake Blessings Border Strip stamp set with gold embossing powder and die cut with the Fishtail Sentiment Banners die.

Adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Mount the die cut poinsettia to the card front and add a few champagne rhinestones to the flower center to finish off the card.
