Merry Christmas!

Hey Y'all!!!  Merry Christmas!  EARLY!  Check out some of the beautiful new dies from Scrappy Tails Crafts Christmas Collection.  Beautiful garland, beautiful poinsettias and fun sentiments.  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I just LOVE Christmas.  Christmas in August?  Even better!!

 

I started with Stampin' UP's ‘Red Foil‘ paper which is so festive for Christmas cards.  The background is a retired paper pack from Stampin' UP! called ‘Mercury Glass Acetate'.  The silver is no longer available but they have introduced a new beautiful Mercury Glass in Highland Heather & Rococo Rose colors.  You can find it HERE.

 

The beautiful poinsettias are cut from Stampin' UP's ‘Red Foil‘ and ‘Silver Foil‘ sheets.  They were created with Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Outlined Poinsettia‘ Metal Craft Dies.  The background of the leaves was cut from Stampin' UP's ‘Vellum‘ card stock with a ‘Silver Foil‘ sheet outline.

 

 

You'll find all the paper and dies in the PDF of my ingredients below:

Follow Your Dreams

Hey Y'all!!!  So excited to showcase another a beautiful card as part of the Design Team for Scrappy Tails Crafts.  I'm showcasing one of the new die sets from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Midsummer Night's Dream‘ collection.  Such a beautiful cover plate with the stitched clouds.  Includes plenty of clouds and stars to create a beautiful card.  This card has a beautiful inside scene that pops right up and off the card.  This is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

 

Check out this set of fun dies from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Midsummer Night's Dream‘ collection.

 

I saw a fun video from Jennifer McGuire Inks and that's the basis for this card.  Loved the way the inside popped open to a beautiful scene.

You can catch Jennifer's video HERE.

 

 

How beautiful all the pieces are in the ‘A7 Cloud Frame Cover Plate‘.  A large cover plate creates a cloud frame to add a beautiful outside dimension to your card.  Love the clouds.  Two dies (a background and edge) make up each one.  You can use them together or separately.  I've used them together.  Then choose whether you'd like to add stars, a moon or other elements.

 

The card base is cut from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Balmy Blue‘ card stock.  Layered on top of the base are a background of Whimsy Stamps ‘Mermaid' 6 x 6 paper.  Bummer because it's retired!  The top layer is the frame from the ‘A7 Cloud Frame Cover Plate‘ in Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock.

 

The sentiment is from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Fairy Sentiments‘ stamp set.  Lots of beautiful sentiments to put together in a variety of ways.
