Pinecone Background Stamp

Image
Hi everyone. I am here today sharing a very simple Christmas card I created using one of the holiday background stamps over at I brake for stamps. This stamp is called Pinecone Background and is beautiful for Christmas or winter cards. 

I stamped the image using Vintage photo Distress oxides then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I added some green using one of my distress crayons. 
I used two rectangular stitch die cuts to cut out two pieces and matted them onto some craft cardstock.  From there I added a big bow and a sentiment and adhered that to some white card stock.

Tonic Studios Dimensions - Eric & Erin Elf

Image
Hello friends! I am here today to share with you another Christmas Card I created using one of the Dimensions Die Cuts from Tonic Studios.



If you would like to see my process for creating this card, you can also check out my video linked below.





For this piece, I used several of the Tim Holtz idea-ology collection along with a printable from VectoriaDesigns.



To begin with, I cut out a piece of heavy weight red card stock 4.75" x 6.75" and frayed the edges with my distressing tool. I then cut out a piece of the red and white striped Deco Art Paper a few cm smaller than my base.

Using my big shot, I cut out an oval frame using my oval die cut and floral frame. I added a tag I printed from VectoriaDesigns just off to the left of my oval frame. I added some washi tape to my base, then adhered my oval frame and tag.

I already had my elf put together, so I adhered him to my frame.



With my focal piece in place, it was ready for some layers...



I added some ephemera as well as one of the Tim…

Vintage Christmas Tags

Image
One of my favorite additions to Christmas Presents are handmade Christmas tags. This is a way to personalize your gifts and add fun unique additions to your presents. 

Christmas tags don't have to be fancy to be beautiful. I created these tags using the child on sled stamp from I Brake for Stamps. This vintage image has so much detail and is perfect as a black and white image.  
I added some snow flake stickers and labels to create the sentiment "Let it Snow". I finished it off with some black and white twine.

Canvas Corp Brands Challenge - All I want for Christmas

Image
It is time for another challenge over at Canvas Corp Brands Collective. This month we are challenged to create something with a Christmas theme. Tell us what you want for Christmas or share your inspiration for the holidays with us.



I decided to create a little Naughty or Nice note book so I can keep track of who is who this Christmas season. For the cover, I am using the Farmhouse Christmas Better Not Pout Tags on Kraft Paper


These are the perfect size to make cute little note books. For the inside, I used the Architexture Ledger paper.

To bind the books, I used some Washi tape along with a needle and thread. I make sure my thread was thicker than the regular sewing thread to ensure a nice sturdy bind.
So don't forget to check out our challenge this month! We would love to see what is on your Christmas List!
