3.  I die cut the next layer with the Marilyn Full Card Wafer Die and adhered it to my distress piece and adhered both to my card base,
4.  I sprayed the layers with gold spray,
5.  I stamped the image and sentiment from the Joy Clair stamps The Reason stamp set,

I am here with Rinea to share some cute Christmas tags created with the Rinea Foiled Papers.  These are perfect for the gifts that you have to wrap for the holidays!  Can you believe Christmas is just 23 days away?  Have you finished your shopping and making you cards? 

For my tags I am using the Rinea Artist's Packs Variety Frosted and Variety Jolly.  These are beautiful holiday colors and would be perfect for any holiday project you may have! 

Here is how I created my tags:

1.  I die cut all the elements for the tags. 

2.  I used liquid glue to adhere all he pieces to my tag.

3.  For the candy cane tag and the Christmas tree tag, I used dies to create the images, using the Rinea Foiled Jolly paper.  I used some foiled paper in the background so the images would stand out.  I added some rhinestones on the candy cane tag and the Christmas tag along with a snowflake at the top of the tree.  The beautiful blue tag created with the Rinea Foiled paper Frosted I added some snowflakes die cut with the foiled paper.  I added some dew drops in the center of the snowflakes.

4.  To finish the tags off, I added the strings by using foiled paper.

Hello everyone,

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new inspirational holiday challenge.  I hope you enjoyed hopping along with the design team celebrating Retro Rubber's Challenge Blog 100th challenge.  I had fun and the winner of my blog is Alicia from Golden Goddess Designs, please send me a message at didlet@aol.com so I can get you your prize!  In the subject line, please put "RRCB 100th Winner".

Now onto my take on the challenge, I was so inspired with the holiday challenge.  I had this paper in my stash called "Snowman and Penguins" by Craft Creations LTD, I bought from White Rose Crafts.  I just had to use it on this challenge.  The stamp I used on my card to stamp the sentiment is by Stampin Up called Wondrous Wreath, it was released in 2014 in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I believe the stamp set is retired.


Image may contain: text

My card is a 5 x 5 card, I cut the image from my paper to 4 7/8 x 4 7/8, I cut come of the images from the paper and fuzzy cut it and used foam tape to pop the images on the card.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin Up's Wondrous Wreath.  To finish the card, I added some dew drops.

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - A Warm Winter

Monday, November 12, 2018

Hello everyone!

I am here with Crackerbox & Suzy stamps to share with you a holiday card! I am writing this post while I am on a mini vacation in Florida, and I am definitely not ready for the cold raining and snowy weather.  It was 85 degrees here today and back at home tonight it is going to be in the low 30's.  I am not ready to go back home!

I am using three of the newly released Crackerbox & Suzy stamps on my card, the melting snowman is adorable, it is called Snowman Melting, the sentiments are sold separately, the "wishing you a" is called Wishing You and the "warm winter" is called Warm Winter Wishes.  The links to these stamps are below in the supply list.

Here is how I created my card:

I started with an A2 card, I then die cut the silver glimmer paper with a snowflake background die.  I then stamped the Snowman Melting stamp and colored him with Copics.  I then die cut him with a circle die and layered it with navy blue cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiments and cut them out and adhered everything to my card.  I added some nuvo black drops to the snowman to give it dimension. I added a snowflake to the snowman's hat that was leftover from the background snowflake die.


Another view of the card.
