Keeping Christmas - October 2019

Welcome back for the October edition of the Keeping Christmas Series.

I am officially way behind in making my holiday cards. My craft time definitely feels like a luxury as of late so I have been trying to make the most of it, this means creating a design that I can duplicate easily.                    

The final touch was some black gems.

For this card, I had a small little assembly line in the works. I made use of my much loved stitched rectangles and layer all the panels. Each with a layer of black cardstock. I popped center panel and the sentiment up with foam tape.

Supplies: White and black cardstock, Designer Paper - Photoplay, Penny Black - Season's Gift, gems.

Got This

I think this paper is so fun, I have had it in my stash forever - with this forever I mean probably 8-10 years. Back when my son was still in school. I found it in one of my bins and was inspired to put something together.

I used a pretty simple layout so that the design was no hidden. I love the adorable little paperclips on the base layer, I added some cardstock to each layer for interest. I popped up the top panel with some foam tape. The sentiment is heat embossed in white on black. 

I finished with some black half pearls.

Supplies: White and black cardstock, Designer Paper - Imaginisce, Altenew - Sentiment Strips, half pearls.

Do you ever get one of those days where you just wake up feeling crafty, today is one of those days for me. I was in my stash looking for the designer paper manufacturer and just about every piece of paper I looked at I wanted to create a card.. darn day job. I am hoping the creative mindset hold on till this evening.

In the Autumn mood

Its a little gray outside my window today but its not raining and the trees have some pretty colours on display. Perfect for some autumn inspiration.

This card did not quick come together as nicely as I would have hoped, in fact I started it a few weeks ago and just finished it. You know when you start something and the creativity kind of just fizzles. So it started as a card for a challenge, which I obviously missed but I did not want to waste it.

I layered each of the panels with brown cardstock and I added foam tape to the larger panel. I die cut the sentiment and added some foam tape to that as well. I finished with some tiny stamped acorns in the corners.

Supplies: Craft and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Simple Stories, Simon Says Stamp - Thanks wafer die.
