If you came from http://carsonscricutcreations.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by my blog and would like to hop with us (a nice short blog hop, only 5 of us) you can start at the beginning at http://sharispinkpalace.blogspot.com.
I am happy to join a great group of ladies to get ready for Christmas. I know it is only March but if you are like us Christmas is upon us before you know it and with everything we are trying to get done becomes overwhelming. Heather and her BFF Shari started this last month and a few of us decided to play along. We are going to easing the stress by making 2 cards each month until Christmas, so when Christmas is here we are ready to just write out our cards and put them in the mail.
Our plan is to make one card using stamps(rubber or digi) and colour with Copics and the second one using a Cricut (or other electronic die cutting machine).
For my first card I used my Copics to colour a stamp from The Greeting Farm, this is one of the images from Rain Snow Shine. She is of course Snow.
Paper: Bermuda Bay cs (SU), Jolly & Bright (Recollections), White (Gina K Designs)
Dies: Large Classic Oval, Large Classic Scalloped Oval (Spellbinders)
Stamps: Rain Snow Shine (The Greeting Farm), Christmas Wishes (My Pink Stamper)
Ink: Broken China (Tim Holtz Distress Ink), Tuxedo Black (Momento), White and Clear Star pens(Gelly Roll
Copics: W3, BG10, BG15, BG18, BG53, B00, E00, E000, Y11, Y13, Y15
For my second card I used the Jolly Holidays Lite cartridge for the cute bird in the Santa hat. Of course I added some sparkle using Stickles.
Paper: Cherry Cobbler (SU), White (Georgia Pacific), and scraps.
Christmas Cuttlebug folder (not sure of name)
Stamps: Christmas Wishes (My Pink Stamper)
Cartridge: Jolly Holidays Lite
Embellishments: Xmas Red and Gold Stickles, Liquid Applique, White Gelly Roll pen, White Liquid Pearls
Thanks for stopping by. I am the final stop on the hop for this month. We will be back again next month.
This weeks Throwback Thursday Challenge is a Cricutless challenge. Well, Emma has so many adorable dies that I have been wanting to use it was hard to pick which one's to use. I finally decided to use the Build A Banner dies and the Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamps and Hello Spring stamps, all available here. I also used the Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large Spellbinder dies. The paper I used is all DCWV and SU along with pink tulle.
I paper pieced the egg on this stamp using a polka dot SU paper and just added some white gelly roll pen to the eyes and an orange copic for the beak.
