....that I am completely addicted to jewels, and have been for a long time! Tee hee! :) Lots of jewels used on this card, and I love it! I did this for the Caardvarks "Color It!" challenge, and it is also based on The Sweetest Thing Sketch #46. I decided to paper piece my stamps rather than color them in...I think these stamps look better that way.
Holiday Cheer" Supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Bo Bunny
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs, Heidi Swapp, MAMBI, & Prima
Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms (Kim Hughes Collection- Heart Warmers)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment- Brown & Dusty Plum, Chalk- Pink Pastel)

Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression by Provo Craft
Diecut Cartridge: Storybook by Provo Craft (circle, scalloped circle)
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Embossing Folder: Snow Dots by Provo Craft
Card Instructions: Round the corners and ink the edges of the pink snowflake paper block with pink pastel chalk ink. Adhere the block to the middle of a white card base. Dry emboss a block of white cardstock with the Cuttlebug machine and Snow Dots embossing folder. Round the corners and adhere to the front. Cut a 4" scalloped circle, and a 3.5" circle using a Cricut Expression and the Storybook cartridge. Ink the edges of the scalloped circle, adhere to the front, and add a strip of ribbon to it. Stamp the tree images to the circle with brown pigment ink. Stamp the same image to two different patterns and cut the tree tops out. Adhere them to the circle image. Stamp the sentiment below the trees using Dusty Plum pigment ink. Adhere the circle to the scalloped circle using foam adhesive to give it some dimension. Add a bow to the right side of the circle, and accent the entire card with jewels.
As you can see...I am adding something new to my blog- the instructions to my cards. Not that I think you can't figure it out for yourself, but it might help to know what size diecuts are, which ink I use, etc... It is also for my benefit...in case I submit them! So, even if you don't ever use it....I hopefully will! :)
I downloaded this album from iTunes this weekend:
What are some of your favorite Christmas albums? I am really enjoying the one above, and I really like the Wow Christmas compilation albums. I would love some others to check out, so let me know!
My hubby just got home from work, so I am going to go spend some time with him! I hope that everyone has a wonderful rest of this Sunday! ♥
