Layout

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

May your Christmas be filled with lots of happiness, peace and love!

Mary here with you today and I have a layout to share with you. I used papers from the ”I Wish” collection which matched perfectly the beautiful photo I found on Pinterest. Is there anyone who doesn’t believe on Santa? I still believe… and this photo was just perfect for a Christmasy post. But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Happy Holiday” paper and I made the layers behide my photo with torn papers from the ”I wish we will deck the halls”, the ”I wish for a holly jolly Christmas”. I also placed some pieces from an old book and two photos from the ”I wish – Ephemera”.

Close up 2

I applied on the center of my paper white gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Before it gets dried I heat embossed it with ”Purely White” embossing powder. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Rudolph’s Nose Red” and ”Bayou Boogie Gold” with some water to make a watercolor effect. I also added some splatters with 13arts white splash ink.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the frame and the floral chipboards with ”Desert Moon Copper Pine”, the words and the dotted baubble chippies with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

As a final touch, I made some splatters with white splash ink and when dried I added some bronze microbeads.

Well, that’s all for today, my friends!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful Happy New year!!!

Hello Maja Friends,

Christmas is almost here and I’ve made a couple of cards.

ChristmasCard_Snowballs_ElenaOlinevich

It is such a busy time when  I create normally tons of cards. However this year I made only a few.

ChristmasCard_Snowballs_ElenaOlinevich1

However it is such a pleasure to use Christmas papers and to create the layers.

I’ve added some die cuts and a few jewels.

For my second card I used the cut out image and the crochet doily as an accent.

I also added the berries insted of using the snowflakes. I guess it is a fine option.

Hello once again. Tina O with you here today with a little Christmas cheer.

I, as a rule do not do cards, but I felt as I should as we a coming into Christmas in only a few days time. With this in mind and the fact that it has been a long time since I have created a card, I have kept it pretty simple. I wanted to do something a little vintage with a shabby touch.

2016-12-20 maja card 008 (718x800)

To create this card I started with a Kraft Cardstock base and cut a 23 x 10cm card base. The top of this was then layered with some Dusty Attic corrugated board. And on top of the corrugated I have used the new “I Wish” collection. Because I wanted a vintage feel I stayed with the rustic brown colours with the addition of cream and green. I tore section of both “Those memories will last” bs and also “You a happy New Year” bs. These would have to be my favourites pieces from the collection as you will remember I used them in a previous layout using the I Wish Collection.

2016-12-20 maja card 011 (600x800)

The christmas leaves I have used for this project were dressed with some Walnut Gold glimmermist to take away the darkness of the green but also to add in a touch of gold.

2016-12-20 Maja 005 (600x800)

I wrapped the corrugation with a large piece of twine and left it hanging to the side. Over the top of the twine I added in some Dusty Attic Baroque Chipboard to cover my knot which was embossed and sanded.

2016-12-20 Maja 010 (600x800)

I have cut the postage stamp from the Ephemera Sheet and added it tucked above the cluster just peeping out.

2016-12-20 Maja 006_edited-1 (600x800)

I dry brushed my embellishments with white gesso to tone the card colours down a little and to keep within the shabby/ vintage style.

2016-12-20 Maja 003 (600x800)

My title “Merry Christmas” was cut from the base strip of “I wish those memories would last”. These are always perfect for that little added addition to any card or layout. So don’t throw them away!!

Layout

Hello my friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

Mary here with you today to share my latest layout featuring the beautiful Christmasy ”I Wish” collection.

When I found that beautiful photo on Pinterest, I though it is time to design a Christmas layout. After all it’s that time of year, right?

But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Photo 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Merry Christmas” paper and behind my photo I placed a die cut doily made from the ”I wish for a holly jolly Christmas” paper.

Photo 2

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Rudolph’s Nose Red” and ”Silent Night Silver” with some water to make a watercolor effect. I also added some splatters with ”Lucky Shamrock Green” and ”Midnight Randezvous Raven”.

Photo 3

I heat embossed the floral chipboards with ”Midnight Gold”, the square frame and the title with ”Terra Cotta Rust” Lindy’s embossing powders. The little pieces of the circle lace panel were also heat embossed with ”Scotch Broom Yellow”. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

Photo 4

As a final touch, I made some splatters with white splash ink and when dried I added some bronze microbeads.

Papers used:

I-wish-P

Well, that’s all for today, my friends!

See you again in two weeks!
