Bells Christmas

The seasonal bells stamp set and punch are found in the Big AC catalog.  I've been eyeing it up for a while and decided to purchase it.  I love the way these cards turned out.  Not sure which layout I like better ... portrait or landscape.  Which is your favorite?

Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter Christmas

The gingerbread man is back ... he made an appearance last year on a few cards.  This simple card incorporates the Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper for the background evenly spaced on white cardstock.  The gingerbread man is stamped onto the crumb cake oval with early espresso ink, and the icing filled in with a white gel pen, and painted with clear Wink of Stella for a little shine.

Square Patchwork Christmas

Now that it's "officially" the Christmas season I can more easily share a few Christmas ideas.

Traditional colors are basic but simple.  This card uses the smallest square stitched framelit in Garden Green and Real Red.  They are stamped with a tree and poinsettia with an added Christmas greeting.  The squares fit nicely together on the 3-3/4" x 5" whisper white layer.

Retiform Technique

Technique Time!  This technique is called Retiform (or grids).  Here's how it's done:

  1. Take a post it note and cover one corner of a 3-3/4" x 5" very vanilla or white cardstock. Ink your sponge with crushed curry and create a sponged line by sponging onto your cardstock along the line created by your post it.  
  2. Turn your cardstock a 1/4 turn and repeat around the card.  Uniform lines are not required to give a more artistic look.
  3. Repeat entire process using cajun craze around the card.
  4. Once your grid is finished, take your post it and cover the center of the grid piece.  Stamp with early espresso images within the grid.  Repeat for open grids.
  5. Stamp large image in the center of the frame made with the grids.
  6. Assemble and decorate the card.
The pumpkins were cut out from the Autumn Harvest Designer paper.
