Shimmering Leaves

Hi there, It's Ceal here to share with you today. 
With this being the week of Thanksgiving we reflect on what we are grateful for. I am grateful for YOU, our customers and blog readers. I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
My card uses the stitched leaves from lawn Fawn, I cut them out using watercolor papers and after I painted them I embossed them to give them the shimmer they have.

Distressed Christmas Tree

I am back with my final Christmas card for you.  I used the Couture Creations embossing folder again, I cut the tree out and did some distressing with Tim Holtz Distress ink, added some crystals, a star and Ribbon and of course paired it with some paper from Atuthentique.  Out of all the cards I made for Christmas I like this one best, my hubby says it is "not me" but I love it!

Christmas Card Lightbulb branch


Hello Ladies!

The boss was happy with last weeks post so I get to do this again.  Yahoo!  This weeks card is a little more intricate and certainly worth the time.  The white card is a 5 x 7 with green flocked or velvet paper and a strip of white, the die used is Memory Box's Lightbulb Branch #98941.  I fussy cut the lights using scraps of blue, red, green and yellow.  I then used Stickles Crystal over the lights to give it a little bling.  The Merry Christmas stamp is embossed in Wow's Platinum Sparkle, which by the way I love these embossing powders.  I hope this was inspirational to all of you that haven't started your Christmas cards or if your looking for that special card for a special someone.

Next week I'll be posting a Turkey Pot Pie recipe guaranteed to make your family smile and a great way to use up some of the left over turkey.  In the meantime, remember this quote "Not my circus, not my monkey's" it made me laugh and I hope you will too.

I'm off to the mountains ski season is upon us!

Christmas Cards from Scraps

Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink - as always Terri thanks for having me.  Today I have two cards made up from leftover scraps of paper.

I saw this card on Pinterest, and loved how simple it was.  Here is a link to the original card http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/image/card/4079127.html .


I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the date and the holly leaves, and then used sequins for the berries.



For my second card I used strips of patterned paper to weave a colourful background for the heart die (from Memory Box).


Here is a close-up and a look at the sentiment inside.




I hope you liked my projects this week - see you next time.

Snowy Shaker

Happy Sunday!
It's Ceal here to share a shaker card with you. Shaker cards are easy to make and so fun!
To make my card I started with an A2 sized base and a mat cut 4 X 5 1/4. I used a Snowflake die from Sweet 'n Sassy to cut out my window for the shaker, next I cut a piece of acetate to cover the window and added some foam tape to the back. For the "snow" I used some sequins along with some Sampendous snow glitter. You can find all these supplies at A Scrap N Place and if not, terri will order them for you.
