I am joining in on the fun challenge this month over at Gina K. Designs. Sheri Gilson is hosting this Months Challenge. She has Challenged us to make a Christmas Card. I can’t believe Christmas will be here before we know it.
I am still planning my fall garden and getting things ready for that. So I am wanting time to slow down just a bit so we can enjoy a little more of the summer. The Dog Days are coming and I am sure I’ll be ready for fall come the end of August! LOL.
Here is the card I made for the Challenge. I think I will make a few more of these to send out. ❤
This card is a A2 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ card. The focal panel with the snowflakes is 3 3/4″ X 5″ . I used my embossing buddy to clean off any oil that might have been on the card. I then placed it in my Misti and arranged my snowflakes. Inked them up with Gina K. Designs Embossing Ink and stamped them. Added my GKD Silver embossing powder and heat set it. Stamped the greeting and heat embossed it as well. Attached the Silver Metallic panel with connect glue and the greeting with foam squares. Added a layer of the silver card stock and a white layer to the inside and stamped the smaller snowflake in Soft Stone Premium Dye Ink on the bottom left corner.
Here are the items I used for this card.

Here is a card made using the New Stamp Set Holiday Trees by: Beth Silaika I have really enjoyed playing with this set. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make some Poppin’ Pink Trees. So this is how it turned out! ❤
I lined up the tree in my Misti and stamped that fun tree 5 times to fit on the 2 1/8″ x 5″ White Layering Weight Panel with a Black Onyx under it. The Greeting is stamped in Obsidian Amalgam Ink on a 1″ x 3 6/8″ panel and backed with Black Onyx Card Stock attached with foam squares over the ribbon. All this sits on tip of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ White Layer that was stamped with the Diagonal Stripe Background stamp Inked up in Popping Pink Electro Pop Neon Ink.
Here is the supplies I used to make this fun Christmas Card.
Then I pulled out the New set Pallet Christmas by: Melanie Muenchinger along with her Perfect Pallets set. All the little images in this set allow you to create a wonderful scene and of course pair with the Perfect Pallet set for some really great cards! Lots of ides for this set!
I Love this Pallet set and the Pallet Christmas has been fun to create all kinds of cool cards! I did the Ink Dragging Technique that Gina Shared recently in a video. After I stamped the Line art image of the pallet in Warm Cocoa, I used the solid image of the same pallet and used Sandy Beach to drug across the stamp. Then I did a little dragging of Kraft on the ends of the stamp so it would be a little darker. On the little trees I did the same technique. Stamped in the Greeting & Snowflakes then used the Fancy Labels Dies to die cut this panel. Added some twine and then popped it up on a embossed panel.
I couldn’t resist using the Christmas Script stamp set along with the Tall Pines Background stamp set to create a snowy scene! I first made some snow hills by lightly blending some blue ink around the edge of a mask. Moved the mask up a bit and blended more ink. Then blending ink around the edges and towards the center. Stamped the background stamp using the Ink Dragging Technique and some Fresh Asparagus Ink. I used a gel pen to add some snow to the trees. Put the panel in my Misti and stamped the Greeting with Obsidian Amalgam Ink. 🙂

Next is a card made using stamp set: Very Merry Christmas
I love this set by Emily Loggans & I think I am going to have to pull this set out to create a few cards like this! I stamped the background music stamp on the White layering weight card stock using Kraft Premium Dye Ink the did a little ink blending with Sandy Beach over the whole panel. Adding a little more ink on the outer edges. I didn’t add to much of the Sandy Beach ink to the middle as I wanted to leave it more white so I could add the Turquoise Sea after I stamped the greeting in Embossing Ink & heat embossed it using GKD Fine Detail Embossing Powder. I also die cut the topper to the ornament and then added the embossing ink all over it and then heat embossed it in GKD Silver Embossing Powder. Stamped and Die cut the Holly leaves and foiled them using the Turquoise Sea Fancy Foil and I had a piece of the stripes left over from another project so those got added to the side! All product are listed below!
