Snowman Couple Christmas Card


Welcome back for my third and final card for my November classes.
For this card I started by dry embossing the white background with the Happy Holidays Embossing Folder. 

Then a Frame was cut out of Kiwi Slice cardstock using the Die from Snapshot Frames. The word Joy was also cut from the same Die Set. 
The Joy was cut from White and Cranberry Bliss Cardstocks and layered to look like snow on top of the word. I added some glitter to the white portion to make the snow glittery.

Tree were stamped on a background panel in Fresh Forest Ink using the Fresh Forest Stamp Se. The sky was colored in with a light blue PanPastel.

For the snow, I used Journey Modeling Paste and topped it off with Journey Sparkle Cuts to make it sparkle.

The Snow Couple, From Snowmen Days was stamped, colored with the Color Burst Pencils and cut out by hand. There is a die for this but I prefer to hand cut. 

The Poinsettia was cut from the Poinsettia Steel Rule Die. Then sponged with Cranberry Bliss Ink, adhered together and yellow glitter I found in my stash, was added to the center.

A triple bow was made from Journey Candle Apple Twine and adhered to upper left corner

Snowflake Frame Deer Christmas Card


Welcome back for the second of my three class cards for November.
This card was SO FUN to make. 

The magic in my cards all comes from the FUN Tools from Fun Stampers Journey. 
I started with a Black Licorice card base. Then I die cut the frame out of Whip Cream cardstock using th Snow Frames Die. This set comes with two dies. The Frame is one and I used the other for the inside of the card. 

The front panel trees and the inside tree were stamped with Fresh Forest Fusion Ink using the Sparkle Trim Stamp set. Merry Christmas is from this same set.
The Front Panel is layered on top of a Fresh Forest Cardstock Mat. 

The Deer and wreath were Die Cut using the Dashing Deer Die Set that is a Host Exclusive in the Journey Holiday Mini. Only $4.95 with a $150 order.  He was cut out of Black Licorice Cardstock and the wreath from the Silver Mirror paper. 

Modeling paste was used for the snow along with Journey Sparkle Cuts for that extra sparkle. 

Three silver sequins adorn the top of the card.

Have a Very Merry Christmas


Hey Everyone, Thanks for checking out my November Class Cards.
Here is the first of three. 

It was so hard getting a good picture of this card because of the Mirror cardstock in the ornament. Fun stampers Journey has the BEST Mirror cardstock. 

Seriously, I have seen nothing like this. You can literally put your lipstick on with the reflection you get from it. 

I had to take many pictures of the card to get a good one because you could see the trees out my window on the reflection of the cardstock.
The FSJ coaches have a sketch challenge each week.  Below is the sketch I used for this. 
 
I first used the piercing die with the Journey rectangles on the actual card front.

I then sponged Lovely blue ink inside the pierced area.
I layered a circle of the Christmas Cheer Prints on a black Licorice Circle.

Then, using the Ornament Swirls Die, I cut out the ornament in the Gold Mirror paper and Black cardstock for the front layer.

The Holly is from the Poinsettia Burst Stamp  and the Sentiment from the Holiday Wishes Set. 

I used red glitter paper for the holly berries and topped it with Journey Glaze, and attached it on top of a triple bow of Journey Whip Cream Thread.

The Pine Sprig was cut from the Timeless Foliage Die out of Fresh Forest Cardstock.

Journey Rectangles - DI-0041
