Christmas Jingle

Hello Classy Friends! Diane here with you today and I have to admit I am very excited about this card, with some of the new products on it that are "in store" right now!!

Dreamweaver has come out with embossing folders. Wow, these certainly make a very nice deep impression! The one I am showing today is Christmas Borders. I told Beverly I had to almost stand on my head, just so I could get a good picture of the beautiful embossing!!

Next I used another new item in store, The Cottage Cutz Vintage Bells. One of the things I love about Cottage Cutz dies, is that most of the pieces can be cut separate! I cut extra pine branches while was I cutting this, for later use!

The pine branch was cut from Stardream Emerald 105# paper and the jingle bells from Stardream Jupiter Metallic 105# paper.

I did use a snow marker on my pine branch. Can you see how the snow puffs up??

I stamped a sentiment from JustRite Christmas Inner Thoughts on a label from Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles, then added Christmas Red Pearls.

Take a peek at the store and see all the NEW items. Also, don't forget we have a weekly challenge with a fabulous prize offered to the winner!! Why not join in with us??

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for our next challenge! We are going to be decorating trees for our CCNS #60 Christmas Brights challenge!

The Lord's Plans

Good morning, Joy here with a card using supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  I tried a new technique on this one and will try to explain what I did.

First I cut 3 branches out of green card stock from Beach Sprig by Memory Box. Then I strategically cut 3 more branches out of yellow card stock. Then I fit the green branches into where the yellow branches were cut -- like a jigsaw puzzle.  This made the green branches lay flat into the yellow card stock.

Then I cut a Spellbinders frame called Nested Oval Medallion using paper from Kaisercraft's The Lake House, then traced around the inside with a black pen.  I stamped the sentiment from Cast All Your Cares, by Just Rite, and popped up with Joy Foam Pads.

I punched out a few little flowers and shaped them on the tan mat from Susan's Garden Tool Kit, using the little stylus. The flowers were scattered around and attached using Art Institute Clear Adhesive .  I used this adhesive because it has a tiny pinpoint Art Institute Metal Tip that put the adhesive right where I needed it.

Lastly little Clear Rock Candy buttons from Queen Company, were put in the centers of the flowers.

Thanks for looking at my card, have a Happy stamping day!

Santa's Sleigh

Hello Crafters!  Shirley posting a card for you today.  I am still making Christmas cards and I hope you are too.  It will soon be time to start addressing envelopes and getting them ready to mail.

If you are looking for a quick card because you have a ton to make, this is one for you.  If you get bored doing it in one color, it is easy just to switch to another color.  I, personally, like a variety of colors.

For my card today, I started with a white card base.  I layered it with blue paper from Graphic 45 called 12 Days of Christmas.  It reminded me of falling snow.  I added another white layer followed by another blue paper from the Graphic 45 paper pad, 12 Days of Christmas. 

I used the Memory Box Grand Merry Christmas Script die, using a light blue glitter paper.

I cut the Impression Obsession, Santa die cut set, from white glitter paper. The white glitter snowflakes are cut from the Memory Box Frostyville Border die.

For the final step of my card, I added a small red dot to Rudolph's nose.

Thanks, for taking a look at my card.

In the Garden of Life

I love this stamp set so much!  Not only are the sentiments so beautiful, the rose is one of my favorite flowers.

Hello, Mindy here, to share a card that I truly believe is the epitome of beauty and class.

I started with a green card stock A 2 size card base, and matted a piece of rusty red card on top, leaving a small border. The color combination was so nice, I decided that I wanted some of it to show through.

So after stamping my image from the JustRite Hope and Love Vintage Labels set, and coloring with my Distressed Markers, I decided to die-cut it with the A2 Card Creator- Filigree Delight from Spellbinders. I also cut one of the Filigree Frames from camel brown stock and trimmed out the center so the stamped image would show.

I lined up the two layers and glued the camel frame on top of the white layer. Then using Joy! Large Foam Pads, I adhered the lattice layer on top of the matted card stock layer for dimension. To complete the card, I added a small sheer bow and Allure Swirls -Silver Rhinestones, cut apart, and placed on the stamped flourishes for added sparkle.

Have a wonderful day, and In the Garden of Life, Let Love Grow!

Snapdragon Wishes

Hi friends, it's Jenny posting today.  I needed a quick birthday card for a friend and this is what I created.

I used the Anna Griffin Cherry Blossom embossing folder on the background panel to add dimension.  I haven't been using as many of my embossing folders lately, but this one keeps getting pulled out of hiding.  I love the subtle texture it adds to my cards.

I stamped the Stacy Stamps Snapdragons, onto white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then cut the white panel using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A die set.  I colored the flowers with Copic markers, and then used clear Stickles to highlight the flowers and add a bit of glitz.  It really sparkles.

"Wishes" was cut from Kraft card stock, using the Impression Obsession Greeting Set, which is another go-to set for me lately, it's perfect for so many occasions.  I cut the purple mat using the next larger die in the  Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A Set.  I then popped it up using Joy! Foam Pads.

To finish I wrapped some twine around the main panel.  The color coordinated well with the Kraft card xtock so it was the perfect touch.  Thanks for looking!
