Merry & Oh So Bright Bells & Baubles Card

Eep!

Christmas will be here in less than one week and I still have a few posts queued up to share! One of them is today’s card that I created using a multitude of items from my November release. You may want to get out your sunglasses because this project is very merry (and oh so bright!).

Let’s get started…

You see what I mean? This card is layered to the max and uses every color under the rainbow…but that’s just how I like it! Anyways, I started this card by stamping out all of my layered ornament images from Bells & Baubles onto their coordinating die cuts. I used a variety of ink colors but tried to keep the color palette consistent for each ornament. Once I finished those, and still had my inks out, I moved onto the background panel.

Using my Snow Flurries Background Stamp I created a whimsical backdrop for my card design. I stamped the base snowflake layer in a light mint color and added in all the fill-in snowflakes using the same color palette as the ornaments. I added in a few neutral colors as well to round out the palette. Now that I’d stamped my little hands off, it was time for the focal panel.

Along the bottom of a white, stitched rectangle I used one of the greetings from Fa La La and stamped that in a crisp, black ink. Now it was time to assemble my ornaments! When I was playing with the arrangement I felt like I needed something along the top for them to “hang” from. I pulled out my Seasonal Wreath Die Set and die cut a few of the wreath from a panel inked with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink. I snipped the wreath apart and layered them to create a garland along the top of my panel.

I nestled in the tops of the ornaments between the leaves and added the ornaments right below. Any ornament that had an accessory like a bow was adhered using tape runner adhesive. Once my panel was finished I popped it onto the background panel which was adhered to an A2 size cardbase. And my merry, bright and festive holiday card was finished!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card! If you’re a lover of color and layers then I think you will.

Stay tuned for a few more holiday posts coming soon!

Thank You Snow Much Folded Gift Tag // 12 Tags of Christmas 2018 with Ellen Hutson LLC

Good morning, friend!

I hope you’ve having a merry December so far. Here in MA we’ve already received some snow flurries which, oddly enough, warms my heart! Who doesn’t love snow?!

I guess you could say my love for winter inspired my gift tag created for the 12 Tags of Christmas hosted by Ellen Hutson LLC. It includes crisp, blue hues and a touch of sparkle which is also today’s theme! If you want to see what I’m rambling about, just keep reading!

Let’s get started…

For the first 12 days of December, members of the Ellen Hutson design team are creating holiday tags inspired by a certain theme. Each designer is also teaming up with a brand and today is Right at Home’s special day!

Therese Calvird and I are each sharing tags inspired by the day’s theme, sparkle, and both featuring Right at Home products!

How fun, amiright?!

There’s also dozens of gift certificates to the Ellen Hutson shop up for grabs so head over once you’re done here for more information!

I’ll admit, when I was given my theme I was a bit stumped! I’m not much of a sparkle person, but I decided to make it work in the best way I could. To start, I knew I wanted to create a snowy background and my Snow Flurries Background Stamp was just what I needed. I white heat-embossed it onto a tag and used Ranger Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon to add color. The snowflakes resist the ink and remain pure white.

Next, I moved onto coloring in one of the adorable little girl images from my Winter Pals stamp set. I used the one playing in the snow and colored her in using hues similar to my background. To give her a place to stand, I cut a piece of white cardstock using a stitched, scallop border and added a touch of Tumbled Glass for more color. I adhered the strip to the bottom of the tag and popped her over top.

To embellish, I added a few sequins and squeezed a little Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard into the center of them. This is where the sparkle comes it! I added a sentiment also from the Winter Pals set and threaded a piece of silver tinsel through the tag. This tag has a pocket for a gift card, so I popped one in that matched the colors of the tag as a finishing touch!

Winter Pals Flurry of Fun Card

Hey, pal!

Hope you’re having a great Monday morning so far! Today, I’m thrilled to be sharing my first card project (+ video!) using items from my November release! Have you picked up your goodies yet? If you’ve been resisting, you may want to shield your eyes from this post. Just saying.

Let’s get started…

Winter Pals Flurry of Fun Card // rightathomeshop.com/blog

I started by stamping my background using the Snow Flurries Background Stamp. I stamped the large background in a light blue ink and filled in all the open spaces with a variety of Catherine Pooler ink colors (listed in the products used section below). If you want a simpler background, you can just stamp the base layer, but you know me, the more color the better!

Next, I colored in the two little girl images and the tree from Winter Pals. I made sure to choose marker colors that would match my ink colors, but just to be safe, I swatched them onto a piece of white cardstock.

Once you have those two elements finished, it’s basically just assembling! I cut my background panel with a stitched rectangle and also cut a piece of white cardstock with a stitched scallop edge that would act as my snow bank. I also made sure to run it through with the same stitched rectangle so that the stitching lines would all match up. Along the bottom of the panel I stamped a sentiment from the same set.

I adhered the two panels flat together and then onto a card base and popped up all my stamped images. I finished off with a few sequins from my Winter Wonderland Sequin Mix as the colors match this card perfectly!
