Happy Christmas Words

One more for awhile!  A clean and simple card but also inspired by Heartfelt Creations!  If you would like any details on this one, send an email to me!


White Christmas Card

Okay it is snowing outside and I have another Christmas card for you.  I can't think of what else I should be doing in this miserable, snowy weather.  Another card inspired by Heartfelt Creations!

I don't think I have done an all white card before and it is kind of challenging.  I did use some gold embossing powder and gold ribbon.  I like how it all came together! 

As always, I love reading any comments or suggestions!



Photos look really blue but I can't retake the photos as this card is already sold.  It really was all white with just the gold embossing powder!!  LOL!

Angel Wings

I made these Christmas cards awhile ago and realized that I never posted them.  Here is one that was inspired by Heartfelt Creations.  Heartfelt Creations has some amazing products and a fabulous blog of ideas so check them out.

Here is my version!




If you would like any info on this just send me an email and I will do my best!  I would love to read your comments on what you think of this one!

Over the Top

Hi!  I'm back with a card for you to see.  A co-worker asked me to make a birthday card that was "over the top".  It is interesting how life seems to happen!   About the time that she asked me I discovered a blog called http://jenniferds.blogspot.com.au/ and this fabulous crafter inspired me to try "over the top"!

I contacted Jennifer about using the Stampendous Frantage and she was very helpful.  I also asked if she minded me posting this as it is so similar to her "style" and she has told me to go ahead. 

I would love to hear what you think of this.  Warning!!  Photo heavy!!  Thank you so much for your help Jennifer!  I love how this came out and I hope that my co-worker and the recipient like it!

Christmas 2013 Number 1

Well.... I'm back!  I haven't had a project to post for so long!!  I have my first Christmas card of 2013 to share with you.

I was very fortunate to take a class with the beautiful and talented Emma Lou of Heartfelt Creations at Scrap and Bean.   Check out the Hearfelt web site and all of the ideas in the gallery and the videos.  There is a wealth of information there. 

Scrap and Bean is carrying tons of the Hearfelt products if you are looking for anything in the Edmonton area.

I used a lot of different products in this card which I will list at the end of the post.

 

 
 
Papers are - Bazzill for the red and the cream one, I'm not sure; the patterned paper on the front is My Mind's Eye.
 
Dies - Heartfelt Creations Ornamental Add On; Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments and Labels 4 and the tiny little one on the front by the phrase is Memory Box Precious Ornaments.
 
The glitter on the ornaments is from Glitter Ritz in Apple Red and Sahara.
 
Stamps are Stampin' Up; Impression Obsession for the phrase on the front and the vertical "Christmas" is from Art Impressions.
 
Inks are Clearsnap pigment ink in Merlot and Bronze and I used Ranger clear embossing powder.
 
The beads are from Mill Hill.
 
I would love to read your comments on this one and if you would like any other details, just let me know.

MIA

Hi everyone!  I haven't disappeared completely.  Summer is just so busy and the craft room gets kind of neglected.  Summer time in Edmonton is short and my better-half-guy and I golf whenever we can and try to enjoy the nice weather while it lasts.

I have done some Copic coloring and some craft classes throughout the past few months though just not any finished projects to show.

I have a list of stuff that I want to make and color so keep watching and check back.

Photo looks slightly over exposed but it shows the details!  LOL
 
The papers were Pink Paislee, the flowers are from Wild Orchid, the lace was from my stash, the rhinestones are Kaiser Craft, the phrase was an old stamp from PSX!
