Vintage Christmas

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful week.  Being in the states, I am busy preparing for Thanksgiving on Thursday.  This fortnight, at Craft-Room challenge,  Mervi is challenging us to create something special with a vintage Christmas theme.  To be honest this was a real challenge for me.  I am usually a cutesy Christmas card kind of girl, but I had SOOO MUCH FUN making this card I might just make a few more.

I used a beautiful collage stamp from La Blanche stamps.  I pulled out my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Inks to color the image.  It is hard to see but I added some sparkle to his beard, hat and coat trim, and piano cushion with Distress Dry Glitter in Clear Rock Candy.  The cardstock is from Bazzil.  I distressed all of the edges to add to the vintage feel.  The patterned paper is from Recollections Holiday Traditions mat stack.  I made a double bow from cream seam binding and finished it with a snowflake and a Jelly Bean Green button from MFT.

I finished the inside of the card with the same paper pad.  The sentiment is from AmyR's Christmas Sentiments II set.  I stamped that in Walnut Stain Distress ink.  I hope you enjoy my card and it inspires you to try your hand at some vintage Christmas crafts.  Please visit the Craft-Room Challenge blog and join in!  Have a wonderful week.

Afternoon Tea Challenge

Hi everyone!  This week Suzanne's challenge over at Craft-Room Challenge blog is Afternoon Tea.  Her picture inspired me this week to make a 3D project along with a card.

I created this adorable tea pot gift box with my Silhouette Cameo.  This is an SVG from the wonderful company SVGCuts.  Mary and Leo are the creative geniuses/owners of this company and I LOVE everything they sell.  If you have a cutting machine that can cut SVG files you need to check out this site! The card was created with an adorable stamp by MFT.  I colored the image in with my Copic markers.  The paper is from Kaisercraft.  With a little gift tucked inside the tea pot I think this would make an adorable presentation for any little girls birthday or maybe even a bridal shower.  I hope you enjoy my inspiration and create an adorable Tea project yourself.  Have a wonderful week!

Leaves Challenge.

Hi all!  I have the weekend off and the hubby is working so I am taking the day to play in my craft room.  I wanted to create a card for this weeks challenge at There She Goes.  I was trying to figure out what to do when I was suddenly inspired by the tree in our backyard.  Aren't the colors pretty?

I used the new stamp set "Happy Fall" from designer Daniel Lounds for TSG.  It is such a whimsical set perfect for Fall/Thanksgiving.  The DP is from The Pumpkin Patch Stack by DCWV.  The cardstock is from Bazzil.  I created the leaf strip with a stencil from Existencil Expressions and Distress ink in Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, and Aged Mahogany. 

I finished the inside with the same DP and stamp set.  I left room for a personal message to the recipient.  I hope you enjoy the card and have a wonderful fall week!
