Glitter Painted Foam Snowflakes Card





Isn't this a fun , non traditional colors, simple card ?

It was also an experiment:
could I paint fun foam die cut snowflakes with glitter nail polish ?

The answer as you can see is YES ! 
I was happy to see that the foam didn't disintegrate 
or anything from the nail polish.
It also dried just fine on the foam.
I'll definitely do this again to make glittered
snowflakes, it may be a smellier process
(I can't stand the smell of nail polish)
but it has almost no mess. 

The patterned paper was from an old Die Cuts With A View
 Christmas paper stack.

The printed ribbon was bought on clearance at Targer
as part of a set several years ago. 

Thanks for looking =)

Santa Face Easel Card


This card was fun to make ! 
Based off of my Santa Face Cuttlebug Card,
only round and turned into an easel card.












I started with a 5 1/2" circle of white card stock.

I  hand drew the beard shape along the bottom portion
then cut it out with scissors.

I ran it through the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The hand drawn mustache and shortened Word Window punch
eyebrows were also embossed with this folder. 

I traced the large white head piece onto
a piece of folded white card stock.
It was then cut out to make the card base.

The face, nose and lips are Blush Blossom card stock
with actual blush rubbed on in places.
The mustache is glued just in the center.
The nose is adhered with a pop dot.

The eyes are 3/8" circle punches with white details
added from a Signo gel pen. 

The  hat is cut with a large circle die
from textured red card stock
and the brim is hand cut from white.

Assorted paper punches were used to create
the embellishments on the hat. 
There is also a touch of red glitter. 
There may even be a stray piece of cat hair
on it somewhere since 
Hyla cat was supervising me!

Gift Giving Snowmen Christmas Card








Reusing an old gift card holder I made years ago.
I cut the front off then stamped snowmen on it.
I used white acrylic craft paint to make them white
on the Almost Amethyst card stock. 
Details were added with markers. 

Glitter along the torn edge of white card stock
for a fun detail on the "snow covered"ground.

The stamped piece is mounted onto shimmery paper
then attached to the amethyst and white the striped card base,

Thanks for looking =)

Chalkboard Greeting Christmas Card



Another pretty simple Christmas card.

The image was stamped with white craft ink
onto black card stock. The edge of the ink pad
was then swiped along the edges.
It is layered onto red card stock and a piece
of white card stock than has been embossed.
This is attached with pop dots over bakers twine
that has been wrapped around the decorative paper panel.

Thanks for looking =)
