Christmas Cards

I have been working on some Christmas cards. Today I am posting two different layouts. One is similar to the one I designed last week and one is more of a winter and christmas card.

Eastern Blooms

Today I made a card for a friend who is sick and battling breast cancer. I used the Eastern Blooms stamp set from Stampin' Up with papertrey ink paper. The pink card stock, the white and the designer paper are from PTI; the green is certain celery from Stampin' Up. I used my nesties to create a focal point for the stamp. It is difficult to tell but I popped up the three pink flowers with dimensionals to add depth to the card. I added 4 baubles from stampingbella.com. To finish off the card I took some pink ribbon and popped it up with the dimensional too.

Monogrammed Note Cards

Today I created some monogrammed note cards and a box to store them in. Over on splitcoast stampers I have noticed that these boxes are popular and so cute....soooo I decided to give it a try and make one myself. The boxes that I have seen hold 3x3 cards but I have been making 4x4 cards- I am shocked that I was actually ale to do this. It was super easy with my scor-pal (my favorite card making tool). The box I designed will actually hold 4x5 cards ( I made it a little taller for extra room like tissue paper). I plan on making these at Christmas time for little gifts. The decorative box will hold 4 personalized cards. Next time though I will make it with coordinating papers!

Lovely As A Tree

Here is one of the Christmas cards that I have been working on that I mentioned in the post the other day.  I used my Stampin' Up Lovely as a Tree set and heat embossed it on to artichoke colored paper from SU. I stamped the "Merry Christmas" sentiment on to PTI white card stock and paired the bravo burgundy color paper from Stampin' Up behind it.  I used the ticket corner punch to add some detail by the sentiment.  I finished the card off with the ribbon from PTI that matches the ink in the sentiment. I hope you like it!

Fun and Fast Notes

I did not post a card yesterday because I did not like the way my card turned out.  I have been trying to design a Christmas card to send out this year but I am still playing around with the stamps.  Today I decided to create a fun and bright card using my Stampin Up paper, "Green Galore" and "Tempting Turquoise" with pink paper from the SU prints pack.  I used one of my new stamps that came the other day.  I love the Fun and Fast notes set from Stampin Up because I am able to play with my favorite copic markers! :)   I also used my oval nestabilities. I hope you like the card and thanks for looking!

Pretty Petals

I just love the way this card turned out plus it was really easy to put together.  I have been staring at the vellum paper for months deciding what to do with it.  I stamped the vellum with the background stamp Pretty Petals from Stampin Up with my versa mark pad; then I heat embossed it with the silver embossing powder.  I paired the card with PTI red and white cardstock and added the matching ribbon from PTI.  To finish the card off I included some silver brads in the corners.  What do you all think?

Get Well

Here is a new post for today.  I have a co-worker who isn't feeling too well and I thought that Bootabella might cheer her up.  For the card I chose Stampin Up old olive and summer fun paper along with old olive designer paper.  I colored Bella with my copic markers again.  I have been trying to learn the blending techniques with the copics but I am not quite there yet. All the sites keep telling me to Practice, Practice, Practice!!

A Birthday Card for Sawyer

Hi out there!  I made this birthday card for my goddaughter Sawyer.  It was her 9th birthday the other day.  I chose real girly colors for her.  I LOVE the Bella Stamps; so I inked up Billboardabella in adirondack espresso and stamped her onto PTI white cardstock. THen I colored her with  my new Ciao Copics markers.  Next I picked the paper colors that I wanted to use: I went with Stampin Up perfect plum, pale plum and the Designer Paper prints pack from SU.  I like the double sided dp paper and I wanted to make sure that both sides of the paper showed in the card.  I used the scor-pal to crease the paper over with a crisp look. I used the merci stamp set to stamp the image in the background with my versa mark pad.  I also stamped the flower from the  friendship blooms set and added a bauble.  

Sawyer did  not believe that I made the card ( I guess that's a compliment from a 9 year old), it took some convincing.  I offered to have a card making demonstration and project session with her Brownie Troop- she was excited about that!  The teacher in me would love to share the joy of stamping with them.

I am a new SU Demo!

Hello everyone.... if anyone is actually out there reading this! LOL I just became a SU Demonstrator yesterday. I plan on mostly being a hobby demo but I do want to share my love of stamping and card making with others.  From time to time I will post cards and projects that I have created- hopefully others want to look at my Divine Designs and become inspired. =)

I hope everyone out there enjoys seeing my little creations! Thanks for viewing.
