Peace Candle

This is a card that Currie made from our new Christmas stamps.
She stamped the candle on light tan card stock and spritzed around the image with Smooch Spritz. She colored the candle with Copic markers.
She then stamped the words

The word Love that she added is one of our small words.
To add an embellishment but not to distract from the candle, she put one of Tim Holtz Fragments over the word to make it stand out a bit without over taking the image.
It makes just enought interest.

Snowing Season Greeting

Currie made this great idea for a non-traditional color and classy Christmas card.
Currie sponged Distress Inks on a light brown card stock.
She stamped 2 different snowflakes in blue.
The same color brown was stamped Season Greetings and the Tree Scene.
Currie tied twine through 3 brown buttons and used them as embellishments.
All of the stamps are Crackerbox Palace.

Cozy Snowmen

Currie stamped the cozy snowmen on light brown card stock and that shows off the white snowmen.
She used Copic markers. She used a very light gray right under the hats for a shadow.
The buttons she added are a great embellishment.
(add close up picture)
Doesn't this saying go real good with the snowmen?

Plentiful Heart

Sorry it has taken so long to get back and put something on the blog.
John and I have been working on getting the new Christmas stamps ready to be put on the web site. With me still taking care of my dad it has taken longer than usual. But we have the wood and cling mount all loaded and on the web site now, so stop on over to take a look.

Chick made this card for Thanksgiving. The heart of plenty.
She stamped the image and colored it. Chick used Distress Ink and lightly sponged ink around the edge. She put clear Crystal Glaze over the top of the fruit.
She stamped Thanks in the center and added the pearls.
She used Spellbinder and cut out the center piece and the frame.
The card is folded into a gate fold.
One the left side she glued the frame and the right side she glued the center piece.
A tip is: to lay the two pieces on the table and use removable tape on the front of the image, and tape the two pieces together.
Flip them over and put glue on only half of each of them.
Remember when you flip them over, so on the back... the frame is glued on the right side and center is glued on the left side.

This is what she has on the inside

Chill of Winter Snowman

We are here in Wisconsin and we have not seen any snow.
She used blue card stock that already had the white starlight pattern on it but she stamped the blue snowflakes on the background. The silver snowflakes are stickers.
She stamped the saying and then cut and embossed it with a Spellbinder die. While the Spellbinder die was still on, she sponged the color on, which gave the white outer edge and then used pop dots.
She stamped the snowman on white card stock and cut out the snow edge and around the snowman. Once she had the snowman places she then cut off the edges to match the blue card stock.
She used White Applique and sprinkled some glitter on it before heating it.
Then she added the embellishments and colored it with Copic markers.
