cards, Catalogues, Christmas


Another different card for you today with the Beachy Little Christmas set.

The tree was coloured with the Watercolor Pencils.  I did add some Wink of Stella to the larger shells although it is hard to see here. I added a strip of Red Glimmer Paper under the left edge of the white mat.

The Desiger Series Paper added to the Old Olive card base is from the Merry Little Christmas pack.

A simple, summery Christmas card.



Stampin' Up!


Another Beachy Little Christmas card for you. This was one of the earlier cards I made with this set.

I have watercoloured the images with the pencils.

I will be honest, while I am happy with the colouring, it is just missing something.  There is no pizzazz! No WOW! I think the sentiment is lost. While I did layer the sentiment on Silver Glimmer Paper, it is still not happening. Maybe I need to redo it? Maybe even a little sponging around the edges? What are your thoughts?

I thought I would show you this card anyway.

Thanks for stopping by.

The weather is warming up here and it is Summer this week.  I thought it’s time to share some Beachy Little Christmas cards for you that I have been making over the last few weeks.

Here is the first one.  I think this is my favourite one.

I heat embossed the shells and the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder on to Thick Whisper White card base. The shell sentiment is from the Beachy Little Christmas set and the “Merry Christmas” is from Star of Light set.  The white squares are cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then I cut gold squares from the Layering Squares Framelits.

I wrapped around some Gold Thread before layering it on white card layered on a Gold Foil Sheet mat. I think the gold makes it classy.
