QKR Stampede Challenge #226 CAS


QKR Stampede has a new challenge and this week the challenge is  "CAS."  I have colored with Copics and fussy cut. I layered a couple designer papers in the same colors and printed out a greeting from my computer. I think he looks like he should perk up. It should make a great get well card.

QKR Stampede Challenge #222 Christmas Cards


QKR Stampede has a new challenge and this week the challenge is  "Christmas Cards."   This week I did several cards each using the embossing folders and Merry Christmas greeting, then changed up the card until I got the look I wanted. The tree is cut using a die from Marianne Design & the oval is cut using a Spellbinders die. The embossing folders are Cuttlebug for the dots and Design Objectives for the die-angle  stitched look. I started out with this all white look and it was ok but I wasn't thrilled, so I moved on to the second try.
This is the same as the first card with just a little different light so you could see the embossing and shimmer better. The paper is white it must be the reflection off my red shirt that gave it the pink glow. 
This is the second try and all that is changed on this card is the addition of the red ribbon and bow. Still I thought it could look better so I tried again.


This is the card I decided I liked the best. This time I changed the red to gold and the shimmer on the tree is now done using gold   Stickles. I also put Stickles on the greeting. It didn't photograph well but it does look good in person.

QKR Stampede Challenge #221 Non-Traditional Christmas Colors


QKR Stampede has a new challenge and this week the challenge is  "Non-Traditional Christmas Colors."  I have colored 11001 Poinsettia with colored pencils and cut out the poinsettia with a white outline. I choose a pink and gray color scheme and found a gray print that I think works great. The Merry Christmas is cut using a die from Poppystamps from the same dark gray card stock as the dark layer. To finish the flower I added some oyster gray Nuvo Drops.

Simple Christmas Cards

Here are a few more of the Christmas cards I have been working on. These use the Merry Christmas Script die from Poppystamps and the Happy Holly Corner die from Memory Box. I did them in a gray & mint green, burgundy & cream, and burgundy & white.  Most of the cards I used only the outside line area of the holly and added it to each card along with the words.

On the card on the right side in this photo I used the negative space for the card front. I place my dies in the area I wanted them and used a small piece of removable tape ran them through the big shot and then pulled the die cut away and glued the small areas of the words where they should be and the holly outline was removed and the leaves and circles are left. You can see the lines on the leaves if you look closely.






Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Poinsettia Christmas Cards


Here are a couple more Christmas cards and I have used the  Merry Christmas die from a Tim Holtz holiday words set from Sizzix and the Poinsettia Die from Sue Wilson. For the first version I added the die cut to the card stock and and for the second version I cut the dies from my red card stock and let the white card stock show through. Except for the single images I carefully cut from the strip of poinsettias.


 You know me and how I love to cut everything. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
