BYSHC Falling for the Holidays ~Noel

It’s Day 5 of BYSHC Falling for the Holidays Linky Party, which is a week long event where everyone can link up a new Christmas/winter card on BYSHC Blog for a chance to win a prize from some incredible sponsors. I’ve been showcasing one to two sponsors a day, so check the other days if you haven’t seen them yet.

Today, I’m presenting a card created with 3 of our wonderful sponsors, Angie Blom, Newton’s Nook Designs, and Gina K Designs. I started by ink blending a white cardstock with Gina K Designs Tranquil Teal, Jelly Bean Green, and Wild Wisteria Ink. Then I laid Newton’s Nook Designs Ornaments Stencil over the ink blended cardstock and inked them with the same colors so the ornaments are darker version of the ink. (The Ornaments Stencil is actually on sale at Newton’s Nook Designs if you want to check them out.)

I colored Angie Bloms’ new Noel digital image with Copic and Tombow alcohol markers and fussy cut it out. I added foam tape behind it to give it some dimension and glued everything on a black cardstock mat. (Angie Blom actually has 2 new images so check out her site if you prefer the word JOY instead.)

Thank you for dropping by. I hope this has inspired you to make a simple, colorful card before Oct. 28th. If you don’t have time to join us, still check out BYSHC Blog for all the other beautiful cards everyone has made. Stop by tomorrow for a cute hot cocoa card.


BYSHC Christmas in July ~ Meerly Christmas

It’s day 6 of BYSHC Christmas in July! 2 more days left! I have an adorable card using one of our sponsors Newton’s Nook Designs Meerkat stamp set. The meerkat actually isn’t a Christmas stamp, but I added a Santa hat from My Favorite Things Beast Friends stamp set and a wreath from Sunny Studio Happy Owlidays stamp set to make it work.

I stamped out all the images, colored them, and fussy cut them out. I cut the arms of the meerkat so I can put the arms over the wreath. I also heat embossed Gina K Designs Puffy White embossing powder on the santa hat to give it some texture.

I used a piece of scrap pattern paper from Recollections Say Freeze paper pad and attached it to a red cardstock for the mat. I heat embossed the sentiment from a mix of the meerkat stamp set and Sunny Studio Merry Mice stamp set. I die cut out the sentiment with our Sponsor Gina K Designs Master Layout 4. Lastly, I put everything together for this adorable Christmas card.

Thank you for visiting. I hope this inspires you to use your other stamps not meant for Christmas to make a holiday card. Check out all the beautiful cards on the BYSHC Blog.
