Card Size:  6" x 6"
I've made a Stair Step Card this time.  My Secret Santa Monica P. from over at Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations facebook group, gifted me with some Heartfelt Creations Wildwood Cottage items!!!!!!  So I have used some on today's card!

Here's a side view of the Stair Step Card, I love how you can add different layers for interest.

I used a panel from the Wildwood Cottage Paper Collection and die cut a scalloped edge using the Border Essential die.  I then stamped and die cut the fence and flowers from the Wildwood Cottage Accents set.  The sentiment and bird are part of the paper collection and I fussy cut them and matted them with cardstock.

I stamped and die cut the flowers, grass and gate from the Wildwood Cottage Accents set and used Prismacolor pencils for some added dimension.

I added some Glossy Accents to the water but at this angle you can't see the sheen.

The wheelbarrow is also part of the Accents set and I stamped it on Kraft cardstock and coloured it with Prismacolor pencils.


Recipe:  HCPC-3772 Wildwood Cottage Accents Stamp, HCD1-7128 Wildwood Cottage Accents Die, HCD1-783 Border Essentials Die, HCDP1-274 Wildwood Cottage Paper Collection, CMTH CS-White Daisy, Bazzill CS-pink, light green, burgundy & Kraft, Prismacolor Pencils, Nuvo Fresh Snowfall Glitter, Twine, Foam.

Cuttlebug Mania Anything Christmas Challenge and Some Quick Christmas Cards

Hello and welcome here!  It's December and time for the last Cuttleubug Mania challenge of 2017!


Challenge - Anything Christmas
(use a die &/or embossing folder)

For a chance at winning an awesome prize, link your creation over at Cuttlebug Mania. 
Challenge runs for 4 weeks. 
Don't forget to let us know how you used your Cuttlebug!


Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I tend to keep my cards fairly simple at Christmas because I'm usually making more than 1.  You know me, I usually add dimension with foam squares and finish my cards with some embellishment. So the cards I'm sharing today you can definitely bling them up, or keep them simple like I have.

A huge thanks to our Fearless Leader Jannie for sending me an early Christmas gift of the snowman stamp and die set...sooooooo cute!!!  I just coloured him quickly with Distress Markers and boom, my card was done.

Inside:


Recipe:  Bazzill CS-blue, red & white, SS-Craft Sensations Snowman, Versafine Onyx Black Ink, Distress Markers, Sizzix EF-Winter Snowflakes, My Favorite Things Stitched Oval Scallop Frame, Craft Sensations Snowman Die, Lawn Fawn Scripty Merry Die, Diamond Stickles.

 Here are a few more of my quick Christmas cards!  
My inspiration came from Pinterest of course.

Cuttlebug Mania There's Snow Place Like Home Challenge

Hello and welcome here!  It's time for another Cuttleubug Mania challenge.


Challenge -There's Snow Place Like Home
(use a snowflake(s) on your project)

For a chance at winning an awesome prize, link your creation over at Cuttlebug Mania.
Challenge runs for 2 weeks.

Don't forget to let us know how you used your Cuttlebug!


Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I did a card class for the local scrapbook store and this was one of the cards we made.  I keep them fairly quick and simple so that a person could make a few without it taking forever.  I die cut the snowflake border out of white cardstock and then inlay it with a piece I cut from silver glitter paper.

Recipe:  Bazzill CS-Rain, PP-Carta Bella Snow Fun Winter Banners, Silver CS, White CS, Poppy Stamps Stitched Alpine Snowflake Band, Penny Black SS-Sweetest Moments, Foam, Versafine Red Crimson Ink. 

When you cut the border out of the white cardstock you are left with a white snowflake border.  Well, there's no sense in wasting it, so I made a card using it and backed it with foam for a 3 dimensional look.

Recipe:  Bazzill CS-Rain & Aqua, White CS, Poppy Stamps Stitched Alpine Snowflake Band, Sizzix EF Winter Snowflakes, Versafine Ink Red Crimson, Penny Black SS-Joyful Wishes, 3mm Foam.

Cuttlebug Items Used:
Poppy Stamps Stitched Alpine Snowflake Band Die
Sizzix Winter Snowflakes 3D Embossing Folder

I hope you can join us for the challenge!

I made a calendar box gift and added a simple Christmas card to go with it.

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
It really is a simple card.  I used the Festive Holly Collection and fussy cut the center piece out and added the die cut behind it and matted the whole piece with red glitter paper.  I used a sentiment also from the paper pack and matted it with glitter paper.

I added some Paperlicious Crystal Clear glitter to the poinsettia.

Recipe:  HCD1-7150 Window Box Elements, HCDP1-280 Festive Holly Paper Collection, CTMH White CS, Red Glitter Paper, Paperlicious Crystal Clear, Foam.

For the gift part of my post, I used Tamra's Tutorial that was done Live over on the Authentique Paper Facebook post.  I found Tamra through her Facebook group called Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations and it is chocked full of Tutorials (and a bunch of fun and friendly ladies!!)...run, do not walk, and join her group, you won't be sorry!!

It's sort of an easel-card-on-a-box-with-a-drawer.  Perfect for your desk, or as a gift for a teacher or fellow co-worker, or mom etc.  Tamra did hers with masculine papers to use as a guy gift!!  I wanted to make one using Heartfelt Creations papers because I could picture the flowers cascading down the easel and across the box.

Oops, how did they get in there!?!  The drawer is suppose to hold my paperclips.  Paperclips?  Pfft, ya, forget that, I'm definitely going to hide my candy in there now!!

For the back Tamra added a pocket.  I decide to give the pocket an acetate window and slide a picture in there instead!!  Sometimes I surprise myself with good ideas, lol!!!

I decided to use a piece of cardstock to hold the photo and added a ribbon on top so that it was easier to lift out and change photos.

Then I had the brainwave to add a photo on the back of my mat so that you can have 2 photos to share.

Tamra has a calendar you can print but I needed mine to be a bit smaller and plain Jane so that it fit my paper, and so that I could add my flowers around it.

I used the Botanical Rose stamp and die for my flowers!  I stamped white cardstock with light pink ink and cut them out.  I then added some pink ink to the edges of the petals.  For the center I used Scattered Straw Distress ink and the awesome HC sponge daubers...the point of the daubers helped me be more precise when I was inking the centers. 

I finished the flowers by adding  Paperlicious Crystal Clear glitter!  I tucked in some swirls cut from the Arianna Lace die and used Heart of Gold Prills for the flower center!









I almost forgot to share the bottom of my box.  I chose to emboss the die from Window Box Elements instead of using patterned paper.

Recipe:  HCD1-783 Border Essentials, HCPC-3651 Botanical Rose Stamp, HCD1-758 Botanical Rose Die, HCD1-747 Arianna Lace Die, HCDP1-275 Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection, Paperlicious Crystal Clear, CTMH Ink-Pixie, Blush & New England Ivy, Distress Ink Scattered Straw, Prills Heart of Gold, Lace, Acetate, Pearl Brad.

Now it's time to hop on over to Emilia's Blog, good luck and I hope you enjoy the Hop!
