Wire Christmas Tree

Hi everyone.. A quick post today with the wire Christmas tree with a crystal star topper that I made.


I used a plated aluminium wire for the tree. I made the star topper with crystals with a golden bead in the center.



Here it is on our window.



Thanks for visiting me today. Please let me know your thoughts and suggestions.

Christmas Tree

Hello everyone!! I apologize for being MIA for sometime. My daughter turned 1 on November 28 and we had the party on Dec 7. Also now that she has started walking, I'm busy running behind her :) But I made a few things for christmas decoration. I will be sharing them soon.

So off to the card.

Here is the front view of the card.



I created a window. Initially I thought of using acetate, but later I decided I wanted a 'frosted' look and hence I used tissue paper (I didn't have any vellum at the time). I added a few punched pine leaves and the poinsettia is a stamp from Joanna Sheen's "Make A Wish" set. I embossed it with gold embossing powder and colored it with sketch pen. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' Christmas Penguins Clear Stamp Set. I drew the serial lights with black pen and sketch pens.


 I decided to add a little bit of snow on the leaves. So I embossed a few spots on the leaves with white embossing powder.


This is a top opening card. Now onto the inside of the card.


I made a christmas tree with punched out pine leaves. I took a triangle piece of paper and covered it unevenly with scrap pieces of green paper (same one that I used for leaves). Then I glued the leaves on top of it. I used a golden color glitter foam star as my topper. I used some crystals and sequins for my ornaments. I wrapped a golden twine around the tree. I mounted the tree on foam tape.


Here's a side view on the tree.


I guess you can see the twine in this pic.

The window view when the card is closed.


The green color and the bling is visible through the window though not very clearly.

Please let me know your thoughts and comments.
Thank you for visiting me today. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Silent Night

Hello everyone!! I made a simple tag today with some inks and stamps.

Here it is:


I inked the background with VersaMagic Sea Breeze and a blue ink that I had bought from Target sometime back. The "Silent Night" stamp is from Unity Stamps' Silent Night Stamp set. I stamped it using gray ink and embossed it using clear powder. The snow(in the background) and the ornaments are actually the leaf stamp from Winnie and Walter's The Big, the Bold and Extras. I love it when I'm able to use a stamp for something it was not originally intended to. I stamped the snow using silver ink from Hero Arts and the ornaments using the Forever green and Royal Red inks from Hero Arts. I drew the string using silver glitter. The 'to' and 'from' are from Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold and You stamp set.


Hope you like it. Sorry for the bad photo. I have to improve my photographing skills.

Thanks

Hello everyone!! I made a quick card today after a few weeks. I recently got some new crafty goodies  using the gift coupons that I got in various contests and giveaways and I've been waiting to try them out. I got a few stamp sets from Winnie and Walter and a whole bunch of stuff from Blitsy. You should really checkout Blitsy. They have sale for craft stuff. You can sign up here using my referral.

Anyway onto the card.



The sentiment is from the Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and You.


The flowers and leaves are from the Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and Extras. These stamps actually have the outline of the flower and also the colored part of the color. So though it looks like I colored these flowers, actually, I stamped them using ink. I used Hero Arts Forever Green and Dark Quartz for the leaves and flowers. The stalk of the floral spray is actually an exclamation mark from the Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and You.

Gold Christmas

Hello everyone!!! I'm here to share a CAS Christmas card that I made today.

So here is the card:


I cut the 2 ornaments on my cricut. I got the cut files from Bird's cards. It is called Baubles 3.


For the ornament on the left, I used the solid bauble die cut and covered it with golden and green glitter tape. I then added a few punched flourishes and sequins.


For the ornament on the right, I took the bauble die cut with the flourishes, inked it and embossed it with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. I then added a few green sequins.



The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' Christmas Penguins Clear Stamp Set. The decorative line is from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' Decorative Frame Toppers Clear Stamp Set. I stamped them and embossed them with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. This is my first time using embossing powders. I'm delighted to see the transformation. I used an iron box, since I didn't have a heat tool. I see that the ink is not fully covered with the powder. So it is not perfect. Hope it'll improve :)

So, what do you think of it? Do let me know.

Congratulations

Hello everyone.. I'm here to share a card that I made today. I was able to spend some time on my craft table today, after almost a week.

I saw this sketch and the color inspiration on Verve challenge blog which really inspired me.


Here's the card that I made using the sketch and the color inspiration.
 I cut the flowers on my Cricut using a cut file from the Cricut Design Space and the branches are from Bird's cards. The branches are actually grey. They appear a little darker in the photo. They have so many beautiful cut files for free. 

I added some pearls for flower center.

The sentiment and the banner are from Unity Stamp's Basically Said kit. I love this big font sentiments set. I stamped it using grey ink. I fuzzy cut it and popped it on foam tape. 


Hope you liked it. Please leave your thoughts and comments.
