Essentials by Ellen – Christmas in July

Hi friends! Long time no see. :) I’m so happy to be sharing a fun CHRISTMAS card using the beautiful release from the 2016 Essentials by Ellen Holiday Collection for you today.

There’s a few of us sharing cards over on the The CLASSroom blog, so I hope that you’ll check out everyone’s cards and see what we’ve been up to. And maybe to inspire you and give you a head start on creating your holiday cards. (Although I’m a tried and true procrastinator.)

I hope that you like the card that I created. I’ll share a few pics showing just a few of my pics from my process, too.

Usually when I start creating I like to figure out what my stamps are, then what my color “theme” will be. Then I’ll play around a little with a layout. I do this before even stamping a darn thing! I take FOREVER creating. No kidding. But, I really want my cards to be unique and different. And I am in no way a CAS stamper. Once I kind of have a plan in mind? THEN I can start. It’s a bit of a tedious process, but it works for me. And it’s truly the only way that works for me.

With this I started by stamping the wreath onto the Neenah paper. Once stamped (and heat embossed) I die-cut it using the matching die-cut. After it was die-cut, I then used some of the pretty Tonic Nuvo Drops (both Crystal and Glitter). I wanted them in both Glitter and Crystal. And I selected colors that were not necessarily typical holiday colors, but are very happy and fun.

I used the Tonic Nuvo Drops to “color” in the different circles of the wreath. I simply colored in one circle (or wreath bulb) at a time and moved slowly around the wreath.  The Tonic Nuvo Drops dry fairly quickly. Just set aside and be very careful NOT TO TOUCH!! (Ask me how I know.)

The rest of the card is just a matter of putting the pieces into place.  The background patterned paper is so bright and matches the wreath perfectly, but I decided that it might detract from the wreath so I used a piece of vellum to tone it down.  Vellum is so useful and elegant. I love using it on my cards.

For the sentiment I omitted the “sparkle” portion of the stamp (since I’d be using the Sparkle Die) using a post-it-note. This is super easy to do. You could also cut the sentiment stamp apart, but I elected not to do that.

Adding the confetti clear sequins finishes off the card and adds the extra sparkly touch. A sparkly, bright, happy holiday card that’s perfect for anyone! :)

Winter Scene Card

Hi  there! I have a beautiful Winter Scene card that I created for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® on their blog today.  I bet you never thought you could create a Winter Scene Card using adhesives, huh? Well, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® makes some fabulous foam shapes, too, as you’ll see in my card below.

Aren’t those trees and snowflakes cute?

The versatility of the 3D Foam line of products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® is what makes them so popular. The shapes can be used with foil, glitter, and can also be heat embossed!! No kidding.

This sweet Winter scene was created using foil and glitter for my 3D Foam shapes, but I also utilized glitter paper and beautiful patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. The fun scalloped rectangle shape behind by scene is a Lawn Fawn die, too.

If my little sticker words can’t be read they are “Winter”, “Frosty”, “Snowflakes”, and “Glisten”. For more information and more photos, please check out the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog post for today.

Wishing you and yours a VERY Merry Christmas.

Pink Christmas Card

Hi everyone! I’m back on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog with this Pink Christmas card today. I’ve been having a lot of fun using non-traditional colors for my holiday cards. Are you the type that like to use traditional colors or that likes to break out of the mold?

Pink Christmas - papergrace - 11272016

The wreath is from Taylored Expressions 3 x 4″ Christmas Watercolor Panels (and right now they’re even on sale). I’m addicted to these panels. They’re awesome for beautiful watercolor projects and quick additions to a card.

I wanted to make this a Pink Christmas card because, really, it’s so unlike me. I am more apt to make a deep, dark card. Just being honest here. I don’t plan. I pick colors and patterns as I go. I’m sure that makes people nervous. But, it’s how I do things. It keeps the process more intuitive or organic for me.

I have noticed that I’ve been using pink a lot this year. I’m not sure what that means. Maybe I just need to hide the pink card stock and move on to a new color? ;)

The subtle glittery stripes are created by using the Home & Hobby Premium Double Sided 1″ Permanent Tape with clear glitter burnished on top. This effect is beautiful. And all of the lovely sequins are adhered with the Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini.

More of the process for making this card is on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog post for today with additional photos and supply information, so I hope that you’ll check it out.

Enjoy your day!

Fall Thank You

Hey there! It’s another busy day today. I have a Fall Thank You card that I made for the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. This card features many of the exclusive products that we carry in our line by Donna Salazar.  Donna has a love for mixed media and what she loves to call “Girlie Grunge”. I happen to love it, too.

Here is my card:

I love the rustic, autumn feel of this card. Even though it’s still so very hot here in Nevada. I love that I can look at this card and be reminded that It WILL get cooler — eventually.

The products by Donna Salazar that I’m using for this Fall Thank You card are as followed: Pigment Powder in Brown, Gold, and Wine; Girlie Grunge Twine, Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape in Ash, and Donna’s Lace Ribbons.  I’m also using the 3D Foam Leaves.  (All Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L® products can be found HERE.)

The beautiful plaid patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn and is part of her Perfectly Plaid Fall Petite Paper Pack.

I hope that you’ll check out the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to read how I made my Fall Thank You card. It’s super easy to replicate. :)

Hope that you all have a wonderful day today!
