Southern Ridge Trading Company Christmas Cards

Here we are just days from Christmas and I am scrambling to get them done.  I found some simple things to put together and save me time but also send out nice cards.  I also needed them to be mailable so no extra embellishing that I always love.

The first set I used Chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company, the reindeer and chicken wire.  I Frantaged the deer in Taupe and the Wire in Scarlet.  

I had enough for 4 cards

My next set are Pion papers on Ranger's big tag. I decided to get a bit girly with them and I am still in the vintage card making mood.  I love working with this theme.

Meanwhile the other kids in the house are being naughty sleeping on my Christmas pillows!  lol

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's to you all!  I am so thankful that I have met online people like you so we can share our ideas and enjoy each other's creativity. The bonus is when a online friend unexpectedly become close and a dear friend, that is a true blessing from God!

Good Morning to everyone and welcome to my blog today.  The weather went from 70 degrees here to 30 degrees with wind and dusting of snow. Brrrr.  Time is flying by and I do not have all my Christmas cards made, how about you?  This one is a favorite and took me a while to complete.  I used Tilda With Apple Wreath and Maja Papers A Gift For You, totally in love with anything Maja.

I colored Tilda with Copic Markers on Express it paper

I stamped and distressed the sentiment Santa is Coming to Town and then applied glittered Modge Podge to it.  The poinsettia's are Sue Wilson dies and a Prima Pearl inside.

Santa Edwin's New Ride

Hello and welcome to my blog today, thank you for stopping by.
I have a new Christmas card to share with you and it has a action wobble on it. 

I colored my images in Distressed Inks and covered it all with Frantage in Sahbby White.  Bigsnow flurries for Edwin to get through.

Here is the bottom of the card using Magnolia doohickey snowflakes and some buttons, lace, ribbon and bells.

Edwin is riding high on a wobble so when he goes over the hills he is shaking.

The top of the card has 2 Magnolia doohickey envelope dies and snippets from the Maja Paper pad I used. Awesome paper, almost scared to use them they, look so pretty.

Here is a shot at the wobble, hard to get this photo because I had to cut it down as Edwin is so small. I glued it on and he moves freely on the card.

Very shortly I have some fun coming to my blog for you so keep checking back!
Have a great day,
Hugs Kelly

Nativity Scene Lantern

Hello my Friends and welcome to my blog today!
A few months ago I ordered a kit from the The Flying Unicorn Store and received this round lantern to alter.  I decided to make a nativity scene with it.

This was very easy to create and is made out of metal. The front has a hinged door and glass on both sides.  I adorned the back with a tulle ribbon also.
First I painted it with gesso.  To create the base color I mixed Prima Bloom Spray Gold Foil and Silver Metallic Paint.  After it dried I used Glossy Accents to glue in the nativity, trees and snow. 
For the outside I found these really pretty flowers and twisted them around the top of the lantern and then hot glued everything else onto it.

Thank you for stopping by my blog I hope you have a awesome weekend.
Later on I have some very exciting news to share and something sweet to go with.  I hope you come around again for that!

Hugs Kelly

Tilda With Apple Wreath

Finally another Christmas card done and ready to send, or not?  They are so pretty I hate to see them go. Silly.  I love the new collection Waiting for Christmas and today I used Tilda With Apple Wreath.

I used my own Christmas decorations to show off this card.  I think I should keep the card and add it to the decorations in my room. lol

I colored Tilda with Distressed Inks. My papers are leftover scraps from last year and I used 2 Spellbinders dies around Tilda.

Magnolias with some winter greens for accents.

The top of the card using Magnolia Doohickeys and sentiment

I used a new product to create a frosty old look, Ranger Embossing powder in Frosted Crystal.  I used versa mark and the holly stamp to make the design on the background of the Magnolia sentiment and then heated and dipped this 3 times to get the frosty effect.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I appreciate your comments.  Wishing you a crafty day!!
Hugs Kelly
