My Greetery package arrived last night, so I decided to have some fun and CASE a JUGS DT member, Nancy. I CASEd her card to the right.

I stamped, inkblended, and die cut out the floral bouquet. I embossed a mint cardstock and die cut out an oval with vellum paper. I glued everything together and that was it. It’s similar, yet different from her card. What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by! Happy crafting!

BYSHC Spring into Christmas 2023 ~Day 3

Hi Christmas card making friends! It’s Day 3 of BYSHC Spring into Christmas 2023 Linky Party. I’ve actually been away for the past 3 weeks due to a family emergency, so I only have a couple of cards to share during this week long event. Join us by linking up your newly made Christmas/winter card on the BYSHC Blog between April 21 – 28. We have some awesome prizes from our amazing 16 sponsors this spring. Check the BYSHC Blog for more details.

This was a super easy card to make with our lovely sponsor, Gina K Designs, products. I started off by masking off the top and the bottom. For the bottom layer, I ripped some cardstock and taped it down to give it some fun edges. I ink blended the night sky with Gina K Designs Peach Bellini, Tranquil Teal, Blue Denim, and In the Navy, from bottom to top. I splashed some water on the sky and then removed the masks. Lastly, I stamped the reindeer, Santa, and sentiment from GKD Holiday Silhouettes.

Thanks for dropping by and hope you join us to build up your holiday card stash. Even if you can’t join us, check out BYSHC Blog to see all the beautiful creations. Happy Crafting!

BYSHC Sketch #30 ~ Holly

Happy Saturday friends! I’m a day late in posting, but better late than never. I’m sharing my second card for BYSHC Sketch Challenge #30. It’s a fun sketch created by Crystal O. Minkler and I went with traditional colors this time. Red, Green, and Gold.

I started by cutting the paper panels into the size I needed. I printed, copic colored, and fussy cut the Holly & Mistletoe image. I used a gold gel pen to add some gold veins in the leaves. I heat embossed the sentiment and added foam tape behind the image. Lastly, I added some gold embellishments.

Thank you for dropping by and hope you join us on Facebook for a chance to win some goodies. The last day to play with this sketch is Feb 28th. Check out the BYSHC Blog for some more inspirations by the design team.

    • Stamp: Graciellie Design Holly & Mistletoe Digital Stamp, Gina K Designs Perfect Poinsettia Stamp Set (Sentiment)
    • Paper: BoBunny Joyful Christmas 6 x 8 Paper Pad

BYSHC Falling for the Holidays ~Gnome for the Holidays

Happy Monday! It’s half way through BYSHC Falling for the Holidays Linky Party! It’s a week long event where you can add Christmas/winter/holiday card onto the BYSHC Blog for a chance to win some wonderful prizes from our generous sponsors.

Today I’m showcasing our awesome Sponsors Therm-o-Web and Gina K Designs by using their collaborated Gnome for the Holidays Craft Kit. I bought this kit for awhile, but never used it until now. I actually made 2 cards because I felt like the first one was missing some details so I made a second one and changed what I didn’t like. Can you spot the difference?

I started by die cutting out the tree and gnome pieces with cardstock scraps I had. I used Gina K Designs Master Layout 7 to die cut out the mini slimline white cardstock and lavender mat cardstock. Then, I used Honey Bee Hill Borders to die cut out the Hill and used Gina K Designs White Glitz Glitter Gel to add some glitter to the edge of the hill border to give it some dimension. Lastly, I added some Sparkling Silver Fancy Foils with Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo on to the tree and gnome hat. The Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo allows you to add foil with pressure only, so you don’t need a laminator.

Once I glued everything together, I felt like the background was a little empty, so for my second card I used Simon Says Faceted Snowflakes embossing folder to give it some more dimension. I lightly ink blended some Gina K Designs Sea Glass over the snowflakes, but it’s hard to see in the pictures.

I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment. I hope you come check us out at BYSHC Blog, and if you get a chance, link up a wintry card.

BYSHC Falling for the Holidays ~ Day 1

BYSHC last Linky Party for the year is here and the design team has so many beautiful inspirations to share with you!! There’s only a couple more months before Christmas, so join us and build up your Christmas stash. Join us by linking up a Christmas/winter card for a chance to win some awesome prizes from some wonderful sponsors. You have until Oct. 28th 11:59 PST to add a card and there’s no limit to how many cards you can link up.

Today, I’m sharing a card created with our generous sponsor, Gina K Designs’, products. I used Gina K Designs Master Layout 1 to die cut out a large silver foil cardstock, a white rectangle cardstock, a pink oval mat, and a white oval piece. I embossed the white rectangle cardstock with Gina K Designs Lattice embossing folder and glued it on to the silver foil cardstock.

I made some poinsettias from Gina K Designs Perfect Poinsettia using GKD Innocent Pink, Bubblegum Pink, and Passionate Pink Inks. I heat embossed the outlines with WOW Metallic Silver Embossing Powder and die cut them out. I die cut out some extra white poinsettia to give one of the poinsettia some extra dimensions but gluing them together. Lastly, I finished my Poinsettias off with some silver gems I had.

For my sentiment, I used Gina K Designs Enjoyable Greetings. The word stamp is actually ENJOY, but I masked off the EN and used only the JOY. I stamped the Joy on the white oval and glued it on to the pink oval mat. I glued everything together and put it over a pink cardstock mat.

Thank you for dropping by. Check out BYSHC’s Blog for the full details and inspirations. I hope you join in on the fun, and even if you can’t, just come by and look at the beautiful cards created. Come back tomorrow for a beautiful underwater Christmas card.

Today, I used her Holiday Tapestry, Ornamental Snowflakes, and Master Layout 7 to make this card. I inked up the leaves with GKD Christmas Pine and the berries with GKD Red Hot. I heat embossed the snowflake and lastly stamped the sentiment from the ornamental snowflakes set.

BYSHC Christmas in July 2022 ~ Warm Wishes

It’s day 4 of BYSHC Christmas in July, and I’m sharing this fun card using our wonderful sponsor Unity Stamp stamp from their May Kit of the Month. This card was inspired by Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #7, which needed to include stars.

First, I stamped the image onto a white cardstock. I used the residual ink to stamp a second image and fussy cut it out. I used it as my masking paper by adding some Tombow removable adhesive. I had a star stencil I created with Cricut a really long time ago, and used that for my background. I ink blended with Gina K Designs Blue Denim and add some Deco foil transfer gel duo in some areas over the star stencil. I had some loose silver foil that I rubbed in to give it some shine.

I stamped the sentiment from our Sponsor Gina K Designs Winter Whimsy stamp set and removed the masking paper. I attached my sheet on a silver foil cardstock for my mat and attached everything on to Gina K Designs Blue Denim cardstock. I glued everything to an A2 card and it’s done.

Thank you for popping by! I hope you join us at BYSHC Linky Party. You have until July 29th to join us. Stop by tomorrow for another simple card.
