Warm Wishes

Hi all, I hope you had a great Christmas. I had a wonderful time with family and friends. It was a gray day not to cold, but the next day the rain and wind moved in with a few snowflakes winter has come to Georgia.

For my card today I chose a winter theme. I used the DRS designs Medium Filigree Snowflake, Ice Skates, and the Warm Wishes Greeting.

For the background I tried the Twinkling H2O’s tutorial form Splitcoast Stampers. I stamped the Medium Filigree Snowflake in Versa Mark and clear Embossing Powder on white paper using Blue Ice and Periwinkle Twinkling H2O’s. The Ice Skates were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers, I used the Lables 18 Spellbinder Die to cut out the image then Blue Ice Twinkling H2O’s were used to color the background with the image still in the die. I traced around the die onto black paper and cut it out with scissors.  The Warm Wishes Greeting was stamped with black ink and the background was colored with the Twinkling H2O’s while it was still in the die. The background was layered onto black card then attached to a white card.

Stay warm and have a Happy New Year,

Winter Time Explosion Box

Hi everyone, I have become obsessed with making these Explosion Boxes. My granddaughter birthday is Friday, and we are going to give her gift to her on Thursday night so she can wear it to school on Friday. We always get her a new Christmas dress. But her party is not until Saturday, and I wanted to have a little gift to give her at her party.( she’s our only girl) I thought she would think this was fun.

I wanted to use a winter theme not to Christmas and very girly lot’s of sparkle. All the stamps are by DRS designs. I used white card stock for all the boxes. I stamped the Interlocking Snow Background in French Blue Chalk ink and embossed it with sparkle clear embossing powder, I stamped 2 of the Large Filigree Snowflake the same way and cut them out. I put a small strip of a clear Polyester sheet between the two snowflakes so it would stand up. The two smaller snowflakes are MS punches that are cover with white glitter after attaching to the box lid I added glue then flower soft and glitter. On the edge of the lid is some lt. blue boa that came from Michele’s.

For the inside I used pink and snowmen, Copics were used to color everything and lots of white and pink glitter. A MS punch was used along the edge of the box top.

For the last layer I was thinking ice and snow. A embossing folder was used on all the layers and I did sponge some blue around the edges and used a brayer to spread glitter glue over the top. The floating snowflakes are done the same as the ones on the top of the first lid. I stamped the Tree line border all the way around the small box in white and embossed with sparkly clear embossing powder. The edge of the box top is punched with a MS Icicles punch and covered with Glossy Accents. For the top I add a white satin bow and a glitter snowflake. This is the little box were her little gift will go.

I hope you like my little gift box.

Have a wonderful day,


Stamps used: Interlocking Snow Background, Large Filigree Snowflake, Simply Snowman, Tiny Snowman Exceptional Year Greeting, Snowflake Scroll, One Line Birthday Greeting, Snowman Bird Buddies, Pine Tree Snowdrifts, Tree Line Border

Christmas Blessing

Well the decorations are up with the help of my sweet little grand children.   The shopping is almost done and I’m trying to decide what I will be cooking this holiday season. I feel that I’m off to a great start.

For my card today I used DRS designs new Lamp Post and the Christmas Blessing. I used copic markers to color the Lamp Post. The edge was sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink then a spellbinder die was used to cut out the image. At the base I used Flower Soft, But I did not have any red or green so used my Polar White and Adirondack Alcohol Ink and died my own colors. I used another die and cut out the red layer and sponged on some Walnut Stain Distress Ink while it was still in the die. The Christmas Blessing was stamped and sponged with Antique Linen and layered on to another red die cut and sponged with Walnut Stain. Everything was layered onto the green card and then a white card.

Have fun getting ready for the holidays and don’t for get to join the Snow Fun challenge at the DRS designs Blog.

Have a wonderful day,
