baby it’s cold outside…

We woke up this morning to 28 degrees.

In many parts of the county this would be normal, since it is winter.  But we are in Florida.   It’s not supposed to get this cold here!  I think it’s a law or something.

So we’ve got the heat turned up and we’ll probably have a fire going tonight.  The weather forecast calls for more freezing temperatures at night for a few more days. 

I’ve got all my holiday cards mailed out and thought I would share this one with you.  I had the good fortune to have this published in this months issue of Vamp Stamp News.

The sentiment is from Flourishes, the holly from Auntie Amy/I Brake For Stamps.  The holly was simply stamped in each corner with the berries colored with a prisma pencil.   I used Memento Bamboo Leaves to ink and sponge.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento Rhubarb.  The paper is Cranes Lettra, and SU’s Cherry Cobbler.  A May Arts satin ribbon tops it off. 

This clean and simple card was easy to replicate! 

I hope you are all doing well this week.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Holly and berries

Here’s a clean and simple card made for the winter CAS design team search on SCS. 

The image (from Auntie Amy’s – which has been sold to I Brake For Stamps) was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on copic X-Press It paper and colored with copics (G40, G85, G99, R46, R89, B0000, B00).

The sentiment was computer generated.  I mounted it on cherry cobbler and sky cardstock and embossed the base card with a snowflakes embossing folder. 

It’s hard to tell from the photo but I used a stardust gel pen to add glitter to the berries and sentiment.

christmas gift tag

I set out to use this cute North Pole postage stamp on a card, and ended up with a holiday tag instead!  The image itself is large enough to be used as a focal point on a card, and I may just make one to match the tag!

The stamp in from Auntie Amy Stamp, which just sold their line to I Brake For Stamps, you’ll probably have to look on that site for this particular image.  It measures about 2.5 x 1.5.

The tag was created first with a tag template from Red Castle software.  If you don’t know about Red Castle, it is a great resource.  They offer alot of free and inexpensive templates that you can just print off of your computer.  This particular tag template offers 10 different tag types and you can chose the size you want from about .25″ all the way to a full size sheet.  Depending on how large or small your tag is it will print out as many on a sheet of paper that will fit.  Also you can select what color you want the outline to be.  I my case I covered most of the tag with paper, so it did not matter.  The template also has a little circle at the top to show you where to punch the hole.

The background papers are from Basic Grey – Eskimo Kisses line.  I stamped the image on white cardstock and colored with copic markers, then popped it up on some cherry cobbler red cardstock (I love this new red from SU!).  You really can’t tell from the photo but I used a stardust gel pen to highlight the rectangle of the image, the stars on the trees and the icicles.  It looks very festive irl!!

The snowflake punch is a Martha Stewart and the red brad is from The Paper Studio Spare Parts.  I used an EK Sucess scalloped punch and some light blue cardstock on the bottom.  The “to” and “from” sentiments are from Flourishes and were stamped in Memento Rhubarb ink.  The satin ribbon is from May Arts.
