Mid-month Inspiration at Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - featuring Sparkle and Glitter

This is a oval-shape card that I printed from my Silhouette Studio Design Edition; and than cut it out with my Brother's Scan & Cut.  I did create the scalloped-oval shape easel with the Silhouette Studio Design Edition and cut with the Silhouette Cameo.  Haven't worked with the online software that goes with the Scan & Cut yet!

I used either Frosted Lace Stickles  or Ice Stickles Crystal Ice Glitter Glue to outline the areas where it was glittery in the photo, make it more glittery.  Printed the sentiment onto card stock and print n cut the label with the Silhouette Cameo.  Inserted a brad on each end, adhered to poster board for dimension and foam taped to base of easel card so it will prop the front up.

I also sponged around the edges to complete my project.  And used washi tape across where the card stock meets, or over laps.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me; and have a free moment, head over to Christmas Cards All Year 'Round for more inspiration and to join in the Challenge - Sparkle and Glitter.

Cupcake Birthday Card - Sliceform technique

Hey, Carolyn here with Tuesday - Cards at Scrapbook Blessings Club and I am sharing a card technique that I found on Extreme Cards and Papercrafting and by clicking on the link will direct you to the instructions for this cupcake card.

Card laid flat for mailing purposes (and to give you some indication of what it looks like)

MY TIP:  don't become frustrated when putting the card together.  Take your time, and take a break if it becomes to much for you.  In putting it together, have to twist the pieces to get them to insert into the slots.

Supplies used:
To be honest, I temporarily paper-clipped the cupcake holder together as it may not be the final piece.  I downloaded a holder from the SilhouetteAmerica Online store that has Happy Birthday cut out, so this is just to show what you can do.

I printed the candles and than used my PrismaColor markers to color the flame and candle (great-grandson will be 4 in October). 

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me, and please visit Scrapbook Blessings Club for more inspiration.

Let It Snow

Good Saturday morning to all, Carolyn here to share my latest card I created using a new acrylic stamp by Lisa of Scrapping with Lisa Designs called Snowfall


I stamped the image, using VersaMark Watermark stamp pad and than applied black embossing powder over the image.  (If you look closely, you will find small black speck dots of black which I had hope would not happen because I rubbed the card piece with my little 'pillow' to remove the static).  Heat embossed the powder, and once I was assured it was dry, I colored in the snow hats, and shoes, and twigs (arms) with my Prismacolor markers.

As this is a 5.50x4.25 size card, the WordArt, Snowfall would not fit, so I stamped the 'Let it Snow' sentiment, and cut this out with my Brother's Scan N Cut electronic machine.  On the Kraft card stock, I embossed the top with snow flakes using my Big Shot embosser, with white ink applied to the inside top of embossing folder.  Not the greatest outcome though.  Layered the Snowmen on two pieces of cut to size matting; and applied with glue to the front of the card stock.  I felt it needed something as it looked blah, I added three button dots to the one corner.  The sentiment was foam taped to the opposite corner.

Thank you for stopping by, in your busy day, to visit with me, and happy crafting to you all.
