Santa Christmas Layout

I have a layout to share today. I Cricut cut out two red circles. I stamped the Santa hat and then the sentiment in it's own circle. The stamp set and red ink are by Stampin Up. I inked the edges of each circle with distress ink. The photos are each backed with patterned paper and then I adhered everything onto white cardstock. The Santa hat has liquid Pearls on the bottom and a little drop at the top. The stockings at the bottom right are stickers by Jolee's/EK Success.

Merry Christmas Wreath Card

For today's card I Cricut cut a bunch of doors with a white back and a circle with a circle cut out of the middle. I randomly stamped the circle/wreath with the same holly stamp in green and colored them in with colored pencils. I adhered the door die cuts together and then to the patterned paper (Basic Grey). I adhered the wreath to the door and set a red brad at the top. I stamped the Plaid stamp sentiment on white cardstock using red ink by SU. Then I added the panel to the front of a card base. I prefer the brad to not show through on the inside of the card for the recipient to see it.

Thanks for looking.

Fall Embellishments

I think I'm going crazy with my blog lately. As I look at my draft list I feel like I've already posted these embellishments but I can't find them. Here it goes.

The first set I separated mulberry paper on the edges with water and a multi purpose tool. I inked up some off white cardstock and some orangish cardstock by Bazzill. The pumpkin sticker and leaf punch are both by Creative Memories. I stamped a small leaf onto the punched leaf and I created the word fall with Lawn Fawn stamps with brown Stampin Up ink.

In this second set, I used cardstock by Forever in Time. The corner stickers are by Creative Memories. I created the word fall with Lawn Fawn stamps with brown Stampin Up ink. The grass at the bottom is a stamp using Memento green ink.

On the last set of embellies I used more stickers by Creative Memories, punches by Marvy and McGill, stamps by Lawn Fawn, Stampin Up and TPC Studio, ink by Close to my Heart, Distress ink and Stampin Up ink and cardstock by Coredinations and Recollections.

Thanks for looking.

Sketches in Thyme Project Life

Sorry no Manly Monday this week because it's my day at Sketches in Thyme Project Life. I followed this sketch:

I had these arrow heads from Cricut's Bits and Pieces cartridge left over from a background I made with all arrows. I layered them on top of each other as shown:

I stamped the border stamp from TPC Studio with black Hero Arts ink. The patterned paper is by Creative Memories.

The number stamps are by Lawn Fawn with Hero Arts charcoal ink. The die cuts the numbers are on are also a negative to a Cricut.

Here is the whole page. The small stamps are by Lawn Fawn and the 1971 stamp is by Stampin Up. The white arrows are from the same Cricut backkground as above and the black are from an unknown punch.

I made some Christmas cards using the same tree stamp by MyStamp Box and Stampin Up green ink.  The sentiment stamps are by Hero Arts and one by Stampendous.  I decided to put them all into one post so this is a long one.

In this first one, I embossed the red die cut with an ornament Cuttlebug embossing folder. The square is a Spellbinders die and the circle is a Cricut cut from Holiday cakes. The sentiment die is unknown. I colored in the tree with Smooch ink and topped it with a star rhinestone. The striped paper is by We R Memory Keepers.

Second one uses a border by Spellbinders and circle cut out with Creative Memories cutting system. I inked the circle with distress ink. Patterned paper is unknown.

Third one has a border punch by EK Success, die cut by Spellbinders and an oval punch by Marvy. The patterned paper is by K and Co and star rhinestone by Darice.

The polka dot paper is by Bazzill. The die cuts are by Spellbinders except the circles are Cricut cuts. The brads are by American Crafts and star rhinestone by Darice.

Stampendous Christmas card

Today's card uses two Stampendous stamps: world background and sentiment. I heat embossed the background with gold embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment onto a Spellbinders die cut with Hero Arts black ink. I set some Making Memories eyelets into the die cut and wrapped some gold elastic inside and taped it to the back.
