Gold Bling

Hello and happy Monday to you! Jennifer McGuire should a new to me technique on her blog last week. You apply embossing paste through a stencil then coat it with embossing powder. When you heat it the surface becomes raised, metallic and bubbly.

 The card base is 110 lbs white top folding. I used a geometric stencil from Papertrey Ink and Tim Holtz texture paste. Embossing powder is Ranger Gold Tinsel and greeting is Typed Christmas from Hello Bluebird.
"B" is for Bling: SSS Monday Challenge
I also Decked my Dies  for the PTI Make it Monday Challenge #344 by triple embossing the Christmas Tree Change-up die.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Cool Stripes

Hey there.  I keep telling myself that I am done making Christmas cards and then a new idea pops in my head...
Today's card is a single layer, top folding, mostly white card. It was one of those that I was trying to challenge myself to think outside the box with my stamps. I used the line stamp from The Stamp Market Birthday Wishes set to create the square for the tree cut out. I used two colors of green and two of blue moving the stamp just a bit each time I stamped it. I then die cut the tree from the Honeybee Stamps Stacking Pendants. Finally added the greeting from the Hello Bluebird Typed Christmas set. Sometimes it is the simplest cards that just tickle me.

 Simon Says Stamps challenge this week was Anything Goes, Less is More has a single layer holiday challenge going and AAA Cards challenge was mostly white. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Glitter Tree

Hello. Today was a super productive day. I got seven cards for upcoming posts. It felt really good. Now to get all the posts written. Todays card was an idea I had come up with but had been waiting on the Black Friday order from Simon Says Stamp. It came today! Yay!!
My card started with the Honeybee Stamps pennant die. I bought it to use as a Christmas tree. I let the die together and cut it from both white and gold glitter paper. Piecing the trees together and gluing them down to my card front. It is a 110 lbs, top folding card base. The greeting was heat embossed in gold detail powder. The greeting was from a new set from Hello Bluebird popped up with foam tape. The star is from Memory Box.

The card is for the three challenges listed below. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Brushed Gold

Hello and happy Wednesday to you! I was playing with a little metallic paint this morning and created a one layer Christmas card. I wrote out all my Christmas cards last night and got them all addressed to mail out. That is a good feeling.
 My card started with a 110 lbs, top folding card base. This is usually Neenha Solar White or Papertrey Ink white card stock. I brushed some metallic acrylic paint down the top edge, let dry then dry embossed the two lines on my Martha Stewart board. Finally I stamped the the greeting from Stamplorations in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold detail powder. After I took the first picture I added a few white Nuvo drops. I was not sure I liked them but they are there now. lol. The clear might have been a better option.

This card will fit several challenges going on right now. They are all listed below.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

PTI November Blog Hop

Hello. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I broke out the Christmas d├ęcor yesterday. I will continue working on decorating my home this week but we all know there will be stamping too. Lol. Today's card was a Christmas card for the blog hop. Below was our inspiration photo.
My card started with panel stamped with the Candy Cane Stripe background. Then I die cut with the Candy Cane Christmas die. I die cut ten candy canes and stacked/glued them together. I heat embossed the canes with clear embossing powder. The pine boughs were die cut from a Sizzix die. I colored the hem tape with Aqua Mist reinker. Everything was mounted to a 110 lbs top folding card base. Greeting was stamped in Versafine black ink.

Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

A Wreath Two Ways

Hello. Happy Tuesday to you! Today I was challenged to take a wreath and create two different projects with it. My wreath die unfortunately was a unmarked die that I had picked up along the way. So I do not have a manufacture for you. Here are my two projects.

The card started with a watercolor panel from Tim Holtz. I wet it down and blended my Arteza Realbrush pens in fall colors across the panel. I then took metallic gold and yellow watercolor paints and splattered the panel. After it was dry I cut it down 1/4" on two sides. I die cut two white wreaths and cut them apart to stretch across the card, attached them with spray adhesive and ran them through my die cut machine to press them down. Then I die cut two thank you greeting one each from brushed gold and white card stock. After off setting them a little I glued them in place with liquid glue. I attached the panel to a 110 lbs, white card base and added a few white Nuvo drops.

My next project with the wreath die was a tag. I die cut both a white and red tag and a red wreath. The tag die is from Papertrey Ink and the greeting is from The Stamp Market. Followed the same process and added a few white Nuvo drops to jazz it up a little.
 The tag was inspired by Amy Kolling (day 13) for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags also using the Time Out Challenge for color inspiration. Wreath, red, white and grey.


Simon Says Stamp has two Thanks/Thanksgiving challenges going on their Monday and Wednesday Challenges. The card will fit both of those. Thanks so much for stopping by, Sue.
