Card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, Ice Inspiration

Hi everybody :)

Here's a 5,5 x 4, 1/4 inch Christmas card I made for the fun challenge over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Blog There's still time to join the challenge, so head over and join the fun :)

They challenged us to use My Favorite things products if we had any, and I used what I could for my card :)

The base of the card is black bazill prismatics cardstock, the silver glitter cardstock is Best Creation, and I absolutely Love it!! The glitter stays on the cardstock and doesn't come off even when diecutting or rubbing it :)

For the background I inked up some white cardstock using my ink dabbers and distress inks in chipped sapphire, black soot, blueprint sketch, peacock feathers, mermaid lagoon, squeezed lemonade and twisted citron. I inked up enough for the back panel, which was cut using MFT double stitched square rectangle die, the largest in the set :)

The shaker element was created using a fun polaroid frame die from Mama Elephant, fun foam to pop it up and acetate for the window. The back panel is from the same background paper as for the card. the icicles was cut using a Joy crafts die and glued to the back panel inside the shaker. The shaker was filled with various bling and sequins from my stash. And the text on the polaroid frame is a norwegian stamp, and translates to Christmas Greetings :) it was heat embossed in silver.

The snow drifts on the shaker and at the bottom of the card is torn American Crafts Duotone white glitter paper. (this paper sheds glitter, but the rough glitter surface gives an awesome snow effect for your cards :)

The tiny silver snowflakes on the background panel and the front of the shaker was diecut from the Best Creations silver cardstock using dies from the snow globe die set from Your Next Stamp.

The fun little piglets are from the MFT stamp set Hog Heaven, and I just Love those cutiepies. The hats are from some other stamp sets, as I don't have any MFT santa hats :) but they worked just fine :)
The piglets and hats were colored with copics and glitter was added to their hats :)

Hope you like my card, and that you're inspired :)
thanks for watching,
hugs and smiles, Linda

High Hopes Rubber Stamps - Crystal Snowlady Christmas Card

Hello everybody :)
Thought I'd enter the High Hopes Rubber Stamps challenge for November with this Christmas card I made using their super cute

And here's my Christmas Card :)

This card turned out to big for my standard envelopes at 6,5x7 inches :) So I had to make one for it.

I used Bazill orange peel white cardstock for the base of this card and the patterened paper I used are from the Kaisercraft mix and match 12x12 paper pad, I cut the doily at the top and the hearts from that paperpad. The stitched hearts in the center of the doily hearts were diecut using a stitched heart die from memory box.

The doily snowflake behind the Crystal Snowlady and the strip at the bottom of the card was diecut using a die from spellbinders.

The Background paper was embossed using an embossing folder. There's a strip of venice lace at the bottom and all the flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts. And the cute flatback Snowflakes in the center of the flowers are from this Ali Express seller :)

The XO was cut using an Alphabet die from Spellbinders and the God Jul, norwegian for Merry Christmas, was also diecut. 

Hope you like my card and that you're inspired to join the fun challenge over at High Hopes Rubber Stamps!!

Card share - Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe, masculine cards

Hi there :)

Hope you're all having a wonderful day :)

Here are some masculine cards I created today, using the wonderful papers and diecuts from the Barber Shoppe, Kaisercraft collection.

I ran some craft cardstock through my bigshot using different embossingfolders. I then rubbed some distressinks over the embossing to highlight it, I used a variety of browns and greys.

I also dicut a variety of gears to use as embellishments here and there, and I added metal gears on some of the cards.

I used glossy accents on some of the details.

The birthday greetings are in norwegian, and was heat embossed using white embossing powder.

I had lots of fun creating these cards and I hope you like them!!
