Rainy Icky Days
Hey there! I have been sorting through all my christmas papers and embellishments, having a ton of scraps that are just sitting here waiting to be used. Mostly it's some Making Memories Noel collection, some Graphic 45 Christmas Past, some old K&Co chipboards, some of that beautiful seam binding I have been telling you about, plus various odds and ends. I have to tell you, it's been really nice to be mostly caught up and just sit here and create today. Plus I have to tell you all these papers have been given to me through sponsorships - Glue Arts being sponsored by Making Memories and Graphic 45, and Cricut sponsorship of American Crafts.
So I couldn't wait to share with you.
First is this pretty Home for the Holidays card has a little Girl's Paperie ( music note paper) the background is Graphic 45 and I even used an extra chipboard from from Crate paper ( also sponsored by Glue Arts)
Next is a rather dark card, but I just loved this vintage santa from Graphic 45, so I cut him out, and foam taped ( Glue Arts) him up, then I layered on some more Graphic 45 papers, and added this December cut out from some Teresa Collins paper ( another sponsorship from Cricut)
I crinkled the paper, inked it and rounded the corners. To Santa, I added some curled berry trim, and at the bottom of the card, I added a less crinkled seam binding bow, with black button, and three jingle bells, topped with a pearl.
Yesterday I created this pretty glitter snowflake ornament. I didn't glitter these, I bought two huge snowflake sets two years ago and am just now getting around to creating anything with them. I LOVE the colors of this. I hot glued the two layers of snowflake together, then I added two Petaloo flowers I had spray misted with pinks and yellows. I also added some matching green seam binding, topped with a mother of pearl button and twine. This is so pretty in the tree lights!
Lastly is another vintage looking card. I used mostly Graphic 45 for this card, they were so very generous with the Glue Arts team!! I simply cut out two strips of paper, and trimmed the one edge. Then I punched out this diecut piece. I added a strip to the bottom and used an American Crafts rubon sentiment.
I then added some gold/yellow seam binding in a bow onto this medallion from K&Co, and added three jingle bells to the center. I also added a gem to the holly on the rubon and pop dotted the middle picture up with Glue Arts UCutIt. lastly I added this pretty brown Petaloo flower ( sponsorship from Pink Paislee)
