Sparkley Christmas ATC Tutorial

Today I am sharing the ATC cards I made for the November Swap at Your Paper Pantry, Enjoy!

Step 1)  I cut my patterned paper down to size (3.5"x2.5")  This is from a DCVW stack from 2 xmases ago.

Step 2) I inked over the whole paper piece with Festive Berries Distress Ink from the Winter 2011 Limited Release.  The polka dots on this paper have a glitter coating that worked as a great resist.

Step 3)  I misted the whole piece with Pearl Glimmer Mist.

Step 4)  I inked some small pieces of white card stock with Forest Moss Distress Ink.  I did this before cutting my shape b.c of how delicate the die cut is.

Step 5)  Here you can see the die cut.  I used Sizzix sizzlets Christmas Tree #5.  After they were cut, I misted them with Evergreen Chalkboard Glimmer Mist.

 Step 6)  I covered the little star on top with Silver Stickles.

Step 7)  I adhered my paper to light weight chipboard bases for stability.  Then I used my 1/4" corner chomper on all four corners.

Step 8)  Seems I missed taking a few photos, oops!  I cut white card stock using Spellbinders Labels 18.  Then I used a Silver Ranger Dabber to paint the whole shape with two coats. 
Step 9)  I used Staz-On in Jet Black to stamp a sentiment from Inkadinkado's Warm Holiday Wishes. 

Step 10)  Here are all the pieces so far adhered together.

Step 11)  The corner needed a little something, so I stamped these holly leaves on white card stock in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The stamp is from a $ bin set at Michaels.  I colored the leaves with Copic BG78 and the berries with R27.

Step 12)  I stamped Perfect Medium all over the entire piece of paper and dusted on Perfect Pearls in Pearl.  Don't forget to set them with water like I almost did :)

Step 13)  I cut out each little leaf set and adhered it with dimensional adhesives to the corner.  Tip:  I like to run the marker I used around the shape after cutting out to sharpen the edges.

Step 14)  I still wanted some more glitter so I used white glue all around the edges and dipped them into some chunky silver glitter.

Step 15)  I still needed a bit more sparkle so I randomly adhered some rhinestones to the trees.

Have a great day!!

Back with some Mini Cards

Hi there!  It's been a long time since I've posted anything.  What can I say?  I lost interest in posting and then I found it again.  I've gotten really into paper crafting over the last 2 years and most recently Copic Markers.  Here are two fun little cards I made recently.

Both cards have a 4x4 brown card stock base and a piece of 3.75x3.75 white card stock divided into 5 sections.  I also trimmed all the edges with a Fiskars postage stamp decorative scissors.

The hearts, sweetie, lollipop and cupcakes are from a stamp set I found in the Target $ bin a few years ago.  The fudgesicle is from Pink Paislee Hometown Summer stamp set and the dotted lines are from Lawn Fawn's Ornate Ornaments.  For the coloring I used copics - R81, R83, R85, E15, E18, E31 and spica clear over all the hearts, letters and bow.
For this card I used all Lawn Fawn stamp sets - Ornate Ornaments, Making Frosty Friends and Winter Fox. I used B000, B02, B05, YR68, and W1 on the snowman; G82, G85, R46 on the ornament; G85 on the branches; B000 on the snowflakes; E13, E15, E00, B000, B05 and W1 on the fox.
I then inked the background using Iced Spruce from the new Tim Holtz Winter 2011 distress set and sprayed the whole thing with Pearl Glimmer Mist.

I hope you liked my cards!  I'm a little rusty, but I'm looking forward to getting back into blogging:)
