Faith and Warm Wishes

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner. Are you ready?  I've been keeping busy in my craft room making seasonal cards and I have two to share with you today.


I am so in love with these stamp sets! The Fall Leaves background just seems to sing to me and beg for beautiful colors. And the sentiments in Love, Faith and Peace are so timely and encouraging.

To create this card, I began with a white piece of cardstock and stamped the leaves image using Versamark, then embossed with a gold glitter embossing powder. I used the Ink Blending Brushes to add some beautiful color with Distress Oxide Inks in Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Fired Brick. Then I added a gorgeous shimmer with some Just Squeezed Shimmering Bliss. After trimming the panel down I added a mustard cardstock mat and attached it to an A2 Kraft cardstock base. Using some rust cardstock, I created a banner and attached that to the card. On the mustard CS I stamped the Faith sentiments and trimmed them to the desired shapes with an oval die (Faith) and scissors. I inked the edges with Distress Oxide Ink and added them to the card along with a couple of enamel dots.

The next card I have to share with you is a Christmas one. 


This set is just beautiful for the holidays. It includes a large and small poinsettia and two sentiments. 

I selected the smaller of the images, stamped it using Versafine Clair Ink in Nocturne. I then colored it using colored pencils and cut it out. The sentiment was stamped onto some gold vellum using the same ink. The piece was torn across the top and bottom and adhered on the sides only to an embossed background panel of dark green cardstock. Those were attached to an A2 card base. I cut out a frame from metallic green CS and placed that on top of the layered card. The Poinsettia was attached using foam tape.  

So, there ya have it. I hope I was able to give you a little inspiration and encouragement with my projects today. Don't forget you can save 10% off all products through Technique Junkies by adding my code at checkout:
