Shimmering Trees Christmas Greeting

I had some very special people in mind when I created today's card. Yes, my stamping friends! I have to create something special and original when I send to other stamping friends! Most of the people I know that stamp, myself included, save and treasure every hand made card they receive. I have more than a drawer full, all bundled in pretty satin ribbons. I do go through them once in awhile for inspiration and just to reminisce! Sometimes I cut the fronts off to save room, but I cannot bring myself to throw them away. How about you? Do you save or recycle hand made cards you receive?

The card base is Soft Sky and the Winter Wonder snowflake is embossed onto Shimmery White card stock. The sentiment from Hang Your Stocking stamp set is embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The sweet bow run between the two Silver Foil trees (from Card Front Builder Thinlits) was tied using the Whisper White 1/8" Ribbon. All these products come together to show a very elegant and shimmering card for my special friends!

Christmas Scene Thank You

I made this card for a friend/customer in Hawai'i. I washed the background of a piece of Shimmery White card stock using multiple pools of ink and an Aqua Painter.

Next, I used Black Memento Ink to stamp my shack and palm tree images onto water color paper. The stamp set is called "Beachy Little Christmas."

I painted those images using Stampin' Write Markers, color pencils, Blender Pens and Stampin' Blend Markers. I snipped them out with Paper Snips and used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop them up on the background. 

I added some sparkle using Iridescent Sequins. I hope you like it! I think it's a merry scene indeed!

Pizza Pattie Box

Julie Salva at Creating for Christ inspired this box! I have had the mini pizza boxes since they came out, but didn't know what to do with them. She covered hers with the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper gold plaid print and then the Gold Foil Snowflake. I loved just the way that looked, but I didn't have the rest of the supplies she used on her box, so....

I went ahead and found my own way to add to her base. I used the Christmas Stocking Thinlits to cut out the red foil (retired) stocking. Mini Sequin Trim went across the top of the stocking. A white Mini Bow was added as the hanger. Lastly, I chose to emboss the recipient's initial using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set, VersaMark and Gold Embossing Powder.

These were so fun to make for my leadership group at Bible Study that I plan on making more for some lucky people on my list! Inside is a Peppermint Pattie!

Thank you for looking today. I hope you are inspired. Use my Online Store any time to order your supplies.
