12 Days of Creating

Today is the final day of my 12 Days of Creating.

I have really enjoyed creating different cards and projects for you. Today is all FSJ. Everything except for the ribbon is FSJ. This card features the use of stencils to create the background. With stencils, you can create a different background each time. The only stamping is the sentiment. After creating the background, die cut the branches and pinecones and adhere everything with craft glue. The stenciled background is popped up.

Thank you for following my 12 days of creating.
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, or Happy Kwanza..Whatever you celebrate, make it the best.

Happy Kreating!!!

12 Days of Creating

Today is Day 11

Holidays can be stressful and what could help? A martini or a cute card with a martini glass. This stamp set from Unity Stamp Co "Bright Spirits" inspired me to bring out my Copic markers and color.The glass was stamped on Cryogen White cardstock in Black Licorice ink. Once I started, I had to bling it out with glitter paper from MFT. To give the glass a wet look, I used Journey Glass from FSJ just on the martini glass.

I used Spellbinders 2013 Heirloom Ornaments die for the sentiment.

Copic markers used:
Leaves: G21,G24,G28,YG01,YG03,YG07
Berries: R22,R24,R27,R29 R01,R02,R05,R08
Stem: E23
Ornament: B00,B02,B05,B06, BV00,BV11,BV13,BV17
Shadow and inside of glass: B00

Now for a real martini:)

Happy Kreating!!

12 Days of creating

Today is Day 10

Today I used a couple of different techniques for this card. To achieve the multi color stamping, I used my Misti. The Ornament stamp is a single stamp. I did not use any masking for this. I rubbed the inked over the area I wanted to stamp and then stamped. The Misti is perfect for this because there is no guessing for lining up the stamp each time. If the color is too light, you can stamp again.
I then stamped the ornaments 3 times on some patterned paper from Echo Park. The collections are : so this is Christmas and Reflection Christmas. I then cut the ornaments out and lined them up. I used craft glue to adhere to the cardstock.

I used Sparkle Silk to add a little sparkle to the card.
My stamp set is from Unity Stamp Co. It is Twig of Memory.

Happy Kreating!!

12 Days of Creating

Day 9

Today's project is inspired by the upcoming Christmas Festivities. It's always nice to bring a gift to a host's home and who doesn't like a bottle of wine.

My supplies for this project are from Jaded Blossom and FSJ.
I used the Wine Tag Die from Jaded Blossom. I also used Holiday Fun and Christmas Village:Gingerbread House from Jaded Blossom.
The background stamps is Festive Cheer from FSJ. I stamped it in Whip Cream ink and used Clear Embossing powder over it. I used Whip Cream Pan Pastel over the top lightly to give it a chalkboard look.
The stamped images are colored using Color Splash pencils and then Journey Glazed. I used Sparkle Dust over the tree.

Ribbon is from my stash. I used my embossing gun to shrink it. The images are popped up.
Now to get the perfect bottle of wine for this tag.

Happy Kreating!!

12 Days of Creating Continues

Today is Day 8

I was under the weather the last few days so I missed posting yesterday. Today's card is using one of my favorite stamp sets from FSJ "Gnome for the Holidays. I used Cozy Knit Embossing Folder with Oatmeal Cookie Ink on the top side of the embossing folder. I you look at the pictures below, you will see the difference when you add ink to the folder. This technique can be used with any embossing folder. The possibilities are endless.

Folder is inked

Without inking

With inking

  I colored the Gnome using Color Burst pencils and then die cut and popped up on the card.
This card is easier reproduced and a fast card to make.

Happy Kreating!!
