Merry Crittermas Cute Christmas Card

I don’t know what I like best about this little guy, but he is just too cute! I think it’s his little teeth that get me. This is a simple enough holiday card to make in bulk, with enough interest to keep me from getting bored. Each element can be prepped in advance and I can assemble them quickly if I plan ahead.

The card base is Cherry Cobbler, layered with Jolly Holiday DSP. I cut Old Olive card stock with the Top Note Die in the Big Shot, and wrapped some 1 1/4″ Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (from the clearance rack) around the front.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from Bright Christmas (Holiday Mini) in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla card stock, punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. I sponged some Old Olive Craft ink around the edges, sprinkled on some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, and heated it to give a glittery effect without the glitter.

For the main image, I stamped this adorable little beaver from Merry Crittermas onto Watercolor Paper with Black Stazon ink and colored it in using SU Markers and the Aquapainter.I use this technique for easy watercoloring.

To make his teeth extra white, I used the Signo White Gel Pen. Then, I trimmed the image out and attached it with stampin’ dimensionals to a Very Vanilla 1 3/4″ Circle that I embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and Big Shot. That is layered onto a Cherry Cobbler 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle, dotted with the Signo White Gel Pen and Paper Piercer.

Greeting Card Kids Halloween Pumpkin Card

I made this card for a swap. I normally don’t do Halloween cards but this little girl was too cute to resist.

The card base is Pumpkin Pie, layered with Basic Black. Then, I used Old Olive card stock, embossed with the Big Shot and Square Lattice Embossing Folder, and die cut with the Top Note Bigz Die. The ribbon is Rich Razzleberry 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain, wrapped around the top note layer.

For the main image, I stamped the pumpkin girl from Greeting Card Kids in Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock. I colored in the image with SU Markers (Dusty Durango, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, More Mustard, Rich Razzleberry, Blush Blossom, Blushing Bride, and Basic Black and Copic Black).

After coloring, I used 2 Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds on the pumpkin. The Black Copic Marker must have been wet still because the glitter stuck to the hat as well. It was an unintended but welcome effect.

Then, I used the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the image and attached a little “Boo” tag with a Circle Rhinestone Brad. The “boo” is from Tiny Tags and the punch I used is the Tiny Tag Punch.

Chalkboard Technique Fall Card

There is something about the chalkboard technique on dark brown card stock rather than black that I like better. It looks warmer, and with fall right around the corner, I was in the mood to use the Season of Friendship stamp.

First, I stamped the tree with White Craft ink onto chocolate chip card stock cut with the Top Note Die. I added some leaves on the tree and along the ground with White Craft ink as well. Next, I used Stampin UP Pastels (chalks) in browns and oranges and yellows to color in the stamped image. After rubbing the excess chalk away with a dry tissue, your colored image is revealed.

I’m on a Victoria Crochet Trim kick lately. I did not think I would like it but ordered it on a whim and now I can’t stop using it! I wrapped the ribbon around the top note and added a sentiment from Whimsical Words stamped in Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla. I punched it out with the Curly Label Punch and attached it to the card with a stampin dimensional. To highlight the edges, I took a sponge dauber in More Mustard ink (my dauber had a little shimmer paint residue on it, hence the sparkles).

The card base is More Mustard layered with Cajun Craze (a perfect fall color). I embossed the Cajun Craze with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder before adhering it to the card.
