Candy Man

Sketch 42 for the Papertake Weekly Challenge 

The cute little snowman and pattern papers are from a digi kit called Candy Man Ultimate Kit from Paper Creator.  I cut out the scalloped card base and saying with my Silhouette Cameo.  Printed the papers and image, then cut out the background layer and border with my paper cutter and the circular shapes with Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large dies.  Added some Studio G glitter glue for the snow.

Scruffy Bear Card

My official start date for the Paper Creator's design team isn't until Jan 1st, but I wanted to use some of their fabulous kits to make my holiday cards and thought I would share them with you. This sweet little bear is from a kit called Scruffy Santa Bear.  I printed the papers, saying and bear image, then cut out the pieces with these punches and dies:  My Favorite Things Blueprints Die #14, Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scallop Squares Large, Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Squares Small, EK Success Circle punches in 1" and 1 1/8" sizes.  Also used Neenah cardstock, ribbon and roll on dot adhesive.

Happy Howlidays Easel Card

This holiday card is for my neighbor.  She has a little 9 pound white dog who is best friends with my mini poodle (who is a white and apricot mix).  I found this darling digi image over at the Crafty Paws website in November 2014.  So glad I saved it as it's the perfect image to use for this card.   I colored the image with Copics, then added gold metallic ink to the bell and puff paint to the trim on the Santa outfit.   (I did make one change to the digi image, I added the horizon line to give it  dimension. ) The Easel card and layers were all cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilies dies.  Added a ribbon and red star button attached with twine.  I'm sure she will smile when she gets this one.

Happy Holidays Snowflake Card

I designed this card in Silhouette Studio DE using a snowflake cut file and a snowflake pattern print file.  Both files are from the Silhouette store.  Also used a scalloped card base cut file from The Cutting Cafe.  I created the inside shapes and filled them with solid blue for the bottom layer and the blue snowflake pattern for the top layer.  Added the saying with the text function to a blue layer then cut out all the pieces with my Cameo.  I also cut out three extra layers of white cardstock the same size as the blue snowflake layer and glued them all together to give the card a bit of dimension without using pop dots.  Added a gemstone to the snowflake center to give it a bit of sparkle.
