Origami Christmas t

Origami Christmas Tree

Oh my! What a super simple card to make. It’s basically all Designers Series Paper and card stock.
And it wouldn’t be a Creatin Sharon’s card with a touch of Bling, right! 
I’m loving the colour combo on this card. The Misty Moonlight is one of my favourite colours. And the Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and to little touch of Early Espresso works so well together. 

Here’s the dimensions for the tree. 

You just need four squares measuring 3 X 3, 2-1/2 X 2-1/2, 2 X 2, and 1-1/2 X 1-1/2. 

And here’s the measurements for the card.

Base 5 1/2” x 8 1/2 inches scored on the longer side at 4 1/4 inches. Your next layer is 4” x 5 1/4”. You’re stupid ESPS 2” x 5”. And your card stock is a 3” x 4” and this piece I did embossed.

Snowflake Wishes

Snowflake Wishes

Here in Winnipeg we woke up to a dusting of that white stuff. Not to much like I said a dusting. Apparently the first winter storm just missed us. Cities to the west of us had receive up to 35 cms of snow!
Thinking we're in this winter for a while!
Today I'm going to share with you another Easy and Quick Christmas Card. 

I'm love doing  my Christmas cards the Blue Tones.
 Thinking that it's because blue is a cool colour. And Winter is a little cool here in Winnipeg!

For this card  I used the Snowflake Wishes bundle. 
Which I think should be in every stampers collection. And you all know how much I love Bling!
I did add a few touches on this card. 
The glimmer adds that touch of bling that I love. 
And if that's not enough, I did add more bling with the Wink of Stella 
and a couple of Rhinestones to the Snowflakes.

Here's the Bits & Bobs

All measurements are in inches

Base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Scored on the long side at 4 1/4"
Second layer is 5 1/4"x 4"
Third layer is 5" x 3 3/4" this piece is embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing folder. 

You are going to need three Snowflakes from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper. 
And two Snowflakes from Whisper White. 

A piece of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper that is cut 3 1/2"x 1"
Your Sentiment will be stamped onto a piece of Whisper White that is 3 1/4"x 3/4". 
I stamped the sentiment with my Night of Navy ink. And then adhered it to the Glimmer Paper using liquid glue. 
Now lets put it together
Glue the Second layer onto the base. 
Add some dimensionals to the backside of your embossed piece and add to the Night of Navy.
I did place dimensionals to the backside of the Snowflakes and the sentiment.
Place your sentiment where ever you like. Just to be sure you have room for your Snowflakes. 
Go ahead and add your Snowflakes. 

Now how easy was that! Look at that gorgeous card you just made! It's beautiful!

Thanks for join me today. 
Have a wonderful day and stay healthy and safe!

Christmas Countdown times Two

Why not get ready for Christmas with thIs hand-crafted Advent Calendar. It would make the perfect addition to any Christmas decor. You can fill these 2 1/8” x 2 1/8” boxes with some small treats. I’m going to full mine with Lindt chocolates. What will you fill yours with?

Today I’m going to show you two different ways I made up the Christmas Countdown Project Kit.
The first one is the supplies you’ll receive when you order the kit. You will definitely be able to decorate all of the 25 mini boxes.  Plus some extras.
And the second one is a little tad different. It has a little sophistication!
Almost like the little Black Dress with a touch of bling. 

I designed the second Advent Calendar by 
cutting out the letters with the Brass Foil that was adhere to the Foam Adhesive sheets to give it a bit of dimension.
With the Basic Black Card Stock I cut 25 2” x 2” squares. Then embossed them with the Winter Snowflake embossing folder.
I cut out 14 scalloped circles with the Layered Circles Framelits from the Brass Foil. I used these to place the numbers on. The  numbers were cut out with the Basic Black Card Stock using the Playful Alphabet Dies. And glue them onto the scalloped circles.  Then adhere them to the Calendar Squares.
The ideas to decorate this Christmas Countdown Kit are endless. 
You can make a Birthday countdown, Easter Bunny countdown, what about a wedding with something special in the last box for the Bride and Groom! There’s no limit to what you can do.
Thank you so much for signing up for my 12 Weeks of Christmas.
Have a wonderful week and we’ll see you all next Wednesday.

Rococo Rose Meets Copper Foil

Rococo Rose Meets Copper Foil
So what do you think of the colour combo? It’s not your traditional Christmas colours but I love it. 
With this card we have a little of everything. I had done some embossing, die cutting, punching with a punch and water colouring. Watercolouring is one of my favourite techniques to do. I find it soooo relaxing. There’s also a few different textures on this card. We have card stock, Vellum, Some foil, and of course a little bit of bling! Every card needs a little bit of bling wouldn’t you agree! 

Now for the bits and bobs.

Please note that all measurements are in inches.

-Card base which is 8 1/2“ x 5 1/2“. Scored on the 8 1/2 inch side at 4 1/4inches.

-First layer is Whisper White 5“ x 3.75” embossed with the scripty embossing folder. 

-Rocco Rose cut 2“ x 4“ rip all the way around the circumference of it. With your Subtle embossing folder and run  through your embossing machine.

-With a piece of Vellum and the leaves from the Christmas Layers dies run them through your die cutting machine.

 -Punch out a tree from the Copper Foil with the Pine Tree punch. Now place the Tree into the Hammered Metal 3D folder, backwards. 

-Let’s work on the poinsettia. With the full Poinsettia from the set. Stamp it in Rocco Rose ink onto your shimmer paper. 

-Now comes the fun part. Watercolouring! With your water painters, you want to colour the poinsettia with  Rococo Rose ink. I started with colouring the whole Poinsettia letting it dry. Then starting with the center and moving out to the edges of the Poinsettia. 

-Now let’s put it together. 

-Scripty  embossed piece onto your card base. 

-Adhere the Rococo rose piece onto the  card using your favourite adhesive. 
-With glue dots on the back of the vellum leaves and add to the Rococo Rose piece. 

-Add dimensional’s to the back of the Poinsettia and tree. 

-Placed the Poinsettia onto the card along with your tree.

-Finish off the card by adding a little bling with the Champagne Rhinestones. 

Wahoo! Another card for your Christmas Card Collection. 

Think that your well on you way with you Christmas Cards. And it’s only October! 

Hoping you have a fantastic day. Stay safe.

Cheers 🍻
