Now you see me...

You know that right now it's SUPER busy at the North Pole! Packages are piling up for Santa to deliver. This little Elf got caught leaving one under a snowy tree!

I used two of my digital  sets to create this card...


I printed everything out in Open Office (a free downloadable app, much like Word), onto cardstock. I cut out the package and elf, and trimmed the tree image to 3 3/4 x 5. I then ran it through my Big Kick with a snowflake embossing folder. I inked the edges with Distress Ink, and layered it onto a piece of black patterned paper from the set above.

(I only printed out a 4. x 5.25 piece, so no waste!) I then layered that on to a piece of black gingham paper from my stash.

Since all my images were pre-colored, (by me!) I simply added Crystal Ice Glitter by Glitters Galore to the green on the trees, and dimensional glue to the package and elf's face.

The finishing touch is a plaid ribbon bow from my stash, attached with Fabri-fix.

I hope this card inspires you, and that you will find your way to my shop...use the code OCT50 to get half off an order of two or more digital sets! Offer expires at the end of the month of October, 2019.

Sweet Christmas


Hi! Welcome to my Studio!

I have been having so much fun designing Christmas stamp sets and papers!
Our challenge this time around at Artsystamper Digitals is

Patterned Paper

For my inspiration piece, I decided to use the Poinsettia Pair papers along with the candy cane and sentiment from Sweet Santa. Naturally, the colors of the precolored images match perfectly!

I printed out the two papers in black and white backgrounds, along with the candy cane, which I sized large enough to be the main element for the card front. I also printed out a sentiment from Sweet Santa.

Using Tim Holtz' Snowflake Duo Bigz Die, an oldie but goodie, I cut two snowflakes from the white Poinsettia paper. As the background papers are layered, I was able to hide the cuts.

I fussy cut the candy cane, and layered it over the two snowflakes, which are outlined with glitter.
The leaves of the holly are coated with Dimensional Glue from Glitters Galore, the source for all the glitter and embossing powders I used on this card. The glue dries clear. The cane itself is covered with two colors of glitter.

I used and old embossing folder strip to give texture to the sentiment. The edges are also coated in glitter. 

I used black embossing powder to heat emboss the brads, which were originally gold. I love that technique!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
