This is again a card done with the European stock and was one suggested by a family member.   

Had done one in all opal, but was told it needed colour, so here is a coloured one. 

It is not Close To My Heart, as wanted this stock for the cards, and used Memory Box dies for the design.  

Even with the regular stock, it is often cuts and not papers used, so went this way for this season.   
Hope you like it.   

Inside is a Christmas verse in the same colour of text weight paper printed from my system. 

Thanks for stopping by. 


Atlantic Hearts Sketch    challenge 82

It is a stamp from the card kit from last year with Close To My Heart, and this is a favourite one of the trees. 

Did them on the Colonial White stock and then the Ponderosa Pine Stock, and again with the Colonial White, which was die cut with a spellbinders die. 

My Ribbon again is bulk from the supplier I get the special stocks from, so of course no name.   Beautiful sating in ivory to match.   

The trees were stamped with the ponderosa pine, and then glittered, and look different when no light required for the picture with a bit more green showing through.   Of course it is again switched from the design shown below,  but that is more usually the case than not.  And almost did not get posted as was into doing things for a small show, but had it done, just not posted.   :)

Here is the original design.    

Have a good day everyone. 

ok.  this is coming up here darker than it really is and the picture pulled from the system.   But, 
It is the beautiful Crystal Blue stock and ink from Close To My Heart. 
Could not get into doing this card and took forever to decide what to do besides another floral one.   

So used this really nice Christmas stamp from Penny Black that actually has a to and from on it as well.   Could not decide, then thought just put some of the wee bitty bling, again from Close To My Heart and stamp the vine part down the side.   (That was decided after done putting the popped up piece on.  LOL)    Had to try it and just hoped for the best that it worked and the popped up piece did not get in the way of the stamp.   The top could probably stand something more, but at this point and time cannot think of what to put there.  It will change down the road though. 

So that is it. for this card.   Sorry all, but just could not get the thought process into this design for some reason. 

But  here is the challenge
and below is the original sketch

Have a good one all.  

 Here is a baby card that just had to be made.  Love the stamp set so much.  It is from Waltzing Mouse, and done here in Coastal Cabana from SU  and Turquoise Sea ink from Gina K .  The wee Swiss Dots embossing folder was used on this for texture.   Of course the Bitty Bling is from Close To My Heart.  Can find so many uses for those wee things.   Absolutely the best.

The dies to cut the basket and the frames it sits on are also from Waltzing Mouse.  The satin ribbon, is purchased in bulk and use the inks to die to the colours to match the cards.   Used dimensionals for popping it up and the beautiful red liner tape, also purchased in huge rolls.   

Here is the inside.   Again with stamps from Waltzing Mouse.  

 Here is is in the Pixie Pink from Close To My Heart.   This is one of the beautiful bright new colours for the next two years.   Again, took the satin ribbon and used my ink pad to make it match.   The front on this one was not embossed, but thinking next one will.   Just wanted to try in the two colours nice and bright for wee ones, and see the difference. 

Have a good one all, and enjoy.

Hi Everyone.  This is the card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 78

Decided to go with a light cheery colour and again left where there should be a sentiment blank. 
The colour ended up with is a close alternate to my much depleted GKD stock by using the Coastal Cabana from SU over an Ivory stock.

Then took an ivory piece, stamped it with a stamp from See D's deco background set, (a find on sale one day when at a store closing.) and Gina K Turquoise Sea Ink.   Took a while to think about it, as had never seen them, they are thin enough that two layers of them and paper fit into a slim CD case, and about 1 1/2" size and a few long and skinny, but with 16 in it, thought it well worth the try.   Glad that they were purchased as work beautifully.

This was adhered to the front panel of Coastal Cabana, an ivory ribbon from Elan around both and tied into a bow. 

Next took a wee piece of each stock, layered, popped with the dimensionals which are so thin. and placed on the bottom right.  Now, what to put on it.  So looked about for things and decided on the wee flower punch again, and took, sponged the edges with the ink, added the Bitty Bling from Close To My Heart, swirled on the layer, and done.  !!

Just when making found out a friend is hospitalized, so know which sentiment is going on this in again the Turquoise Sea for a tone on tone look, and popping in the mail.  

Here is the original sketch for you
