There's a Feeling of Christmas

What a beautiful day today- after that blast of wind and rain we experienced on Sunday.  For the first time in a long time we lost power - and believe it or not I continued to make cards with candle light.  Anal or what???

 I started this card when the lights were out, and finished it with the lights on.

I stamped the image of the wreath in Garden Green ink and then stamped over it with Crumb Cake ink (second generation).  I stamped some berries randomly on the wreath with Cherry Cobbler ink, then coloured in the leaves with a Garden Green marker.  The ribbon was coloured with a Cherry Cobbler marker, after which I added glitter to the berries and the ribbon.

In the center I stamped and embossed a sentiment.

The art piece was matted with Garden Green card stock.  Behind that I added a panel of Red Glimmer paper.  Before adding this to the card front I added a gold metallic snowflake.

The card base is Basic Black card stock, layered with Christmas Around the World DSP.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Feeling of Christmas
Inks:  Versa Mark, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Markers (Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green), Crumb Cake
Papers:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Garden Green, Red glimmer paper, Christmas Around the World DSP
Accessories:  Gold Metallic Snowflake, Cherry Cobbler glitter, Pearls coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend

Thinking of You with Count Your Blessings - Try Stampin or Not on Tuesday #344

This week's theme with the sketch challenge with Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday #344 is "Autumn".  Autumn cards make wonderful Sympathy or Thinking of You cards so for this sketch challenge I made a "Thinking of You" card.

The sketch this week is by Kaylin.

The Chocolate Chip card stock base is layered with a Very Vanilla layer with stamped images covering it.  The edges are also sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

Near the bottom I added a strip of  Painted Autumn DSP that has images  of acorns all over it - fitting in very nicely with the images on my art piece.

On top of that is an angled piece of the reverse side of the DSP, and the two art piece panels are added to that.

Inside the art piece panels I separated the image of the acorn from "Count Your Blessings" and coloured them with the new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. To add some glitter I added Clear Wink of Stella to the images.

All edges are sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

The sentiment is from "Basket of Wishes", stamped in Chocolate Ink and added to the card front with dimensionals.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Count Your Blessings, Basket of Wishes
Inks:  Black Memento, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Stampin' Blends (Old Olive, Crumb Cake)
Papers:  Chocolate chip, Very Vanilla, Painted Autumn DSP
Accessories:  Dimensionals, Clear Wink of Stella.

Holly Berry Happiness

I used the Eclipse technique on this card.

The Holly and Ivy images were stamped 3 times in different directions using lack Memento ink. A bow was stamped at the end of each cluster. The Stampin' Blend markers were used to colour the images rather than do 2 step stamping. Then Wink of Stella was added to the berries and the ribbons.

The tiny berry image stamp was stamped on the background.

Once finished, I used the Large Letters Framelits and die cut "JOY" across the front.  The letters were readhered to the card front using foam tape strips.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Holly Berry Happiness
Inks:  Black Memento, Stampin' Blend Markers (Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler)
Papers:  Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories:  Large Letters Framelits, Clear Wink of Stella, Foam adhesive strips
