BYSHC Spring into Christmas ~ Day 4

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing an interactive Christmas card inspired by Jennifer Mcguire’s Floating Elements for BYSHC Spring into Christmas Linky Party. The ornament can move from side to side so it seems like the ornament is swinging.

I started off by using Gina K Designs Master Layouts #7 to die cut out the base and mat layers. I used sponsor Gina Marie Designs Grinch Theme Stamp for the hand and colored it with Copic Markers and Tombow ABT Pro alcohol markers. I die cut a small oval underneath the hand I stamped. On a separate cardstock, I die cut out a circle bigger than the oval.

I stamped Simon Says Stamp Winter Seals on a separate white cardstock and fussy cut it out. I stuck foam tape in the center of the circle die cut and layered the circle on the bottom underneath the oval opening. Then I laid the ornament on top of the foam tape over the base layer. Lastly, I stuck foam tape all over the bottom of the base layer and laid it over my mat layer.

Christmas in July 2021 BYSHC Hop ~ Day 4

It’s half way through the BYSHC Christmas in July Hop! You still have time to join us by linking your Christmas/holiday/winter cards to the blog.

For this card, I used two of our Sponsors Unity Stamp Stay Cozy Stamp and Gina Marie Designs Loopy Square Die. I cut out some triangles from Recollections Say Freeze Paper pad and attached it to square black cardstock. I stamped the snowmen onto a square white cardstock and colored them with colored pencils. I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Merry Christmas Sentiments. I used Gina Marie Designs Die to die cut out a black mat for the white cardstock and attached everything together.

Thank you for stopping by!

When Times are Tough…

When times are tough, drink some hot chocolate! I’m always looking for some yummy hot chocolate. Recently, I like using Valrhona’s Dark Chocolate to make hot chocolate instead of using cocoa powder. 🤤

I came across Coffee Loving Cardmakers Guest Design contest for National Hot Cocoa Day, so I decided to make a Hot Cocoa card for fun. I also wanted to play with this new stamp, Dream of Being, I got from Unity Stamp Co. It paired really well with this hot chocolate paper from Recollections Say Freeze Paper Pad.

First, I used my Cricut to cut out a white oval and a scalloped green oval. I stamped the girl and colored her with colored pencils. The sentiment was typed and printed with the font Candy Clause. Lastly, I assembled the card together.

I hope everyone had a wonderful fun-filled, relaxing holiday with loved ones! Thank you for stopping by! Stay Safe!
