Shaker Bird Scene

~Paper: Whisper White CS, Frostwood Lodge DSP.
~Ink: Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze.

Shaker Ornament Card

Those Shaker Frames are too fun! I decided to use a small one for the inside of the ornament, I ended up using the 1" circle punch to punch out a circle from the window sheet to place over the Shaker Frame and then punched out the ornament and used the 3/4" circle punch in the middle of that so when the ornament was placed over the hole the foam was covered and didn't show! The inside of the Shaker circle is a rose punched out of the Holly Berry DSP and a few Mica Flakes added on top! I used Silver Waffle Paper over the top of the punched ornament as well as around the frame as a mat for the main panel!

~Stamps: Christmas Lodge.

Misty Vellum Tree

Simple card using Christmas Lodge set and Framed Tulips Embossing Folder!
I stamped the tree in Sahara Sand ink on Shimmery White CS then placed mono adhesive just over the stamped tree part and adhered the CS Vellum over it. I stamped the greeting on the vellum, omitting the happy holidays and stamping A Christmas Wish from Gifts of Christmas set in it's place using Suede ink. I added a few Real Red dots around the swirls with a marker.

Snow Flake Trees

I still think the Triple Doily Punch makes a great snowflake! I love how these Silver Glimmer paper doilies look lined up too! I stamped the tree over and over with Sahara Sand ink on Shimmery White CS and then embossed the Merry Christmas in Silver over the trees. The snowflakes are adhered over a thin strip of Brushed Silver CS along the bottom to add some depth with a Rhinestone added to each snowflake. Super Bling and Sparkle and so simple!
~Stamps: Christmas Lodge.
~Ink: Sahara Sand, Versa Mark.
~Paper: Shimmery White CS, Brushed Silver CS, Silver Glimmer Paper.
~Accessories: Big Shot, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Triple Doily Punch, Heat Gun, Silver Embossing Powder, Basic Rhinestones.

Snowy Snowflake Lodge

I stamped the lodge on Shimmery CS with Sahara Sand ink and then colored it a bit with the fine point of the markers, mostly Sahara Sand, Bashful Blue, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.
I left the snow alone and added a bit of glitter to the windows and sponged the sky with Baja Breeze and the ground with Sahara Sand. The Snowflakes were punched out using the Doily Triple Layer Punch and the fabulous Silver Glimmer Paper....Perfect!
I love the background paper from Frostwood Lodge, the one I used looks like birch wood which I layered on Silver Glimmer Paper and then on Brushed Silver CS card base. I was going for a soft look but wanted the lodge to stand out as well as the silver glimmer paper!

This close up is not as true to color as the top picture thanks to bad pic but shows I really didn't add much in the way of color, it's such a detailed stamp, no need to!
~Stamps: Christmas Lodge.
~Paper: Brushed Silver CS, Silver Glimmer Paper, Frostwood Lodge DSP, Shimmery White CS.
~ink: Sahara Sand, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler.
~Accessories: Triple Layer Doily Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Vanilla Velvet Ribbon, Sponge, post-it note mask.

Flip Flap Class Card

A Flip Flap Card using Bea Chateau DSP and Established Elegance, Netting and Clearly For You stamp sets! I got the directions for this card from techniquejunkies!
I used the Oval Embossed frame as the focal point here along with the Chateau DSP and punched ribbon to tie it together!

This shows the the card flipped open and the partial inside!

This view shows the left flipped open and the right flap up to reveal the whole inside! This is a fun card to make especially using DSP paper and you can get two cards out of one sheet of CS if you use a different color CS flap on the inside! I used all Shimmery CS for this one and it was all sponged with Suede ink to give it that Shabby look! I added an embossed stamped frame to the inside for the focal point.
~Stamps: Established Elegance, Clearly for You, Tiny Tags, Netting.
~Ink: Marina Mist, Soft Suede, Pretty In Pink, More Mustard, Markers; Old Olive, Regal Rose, Soft Suede.
