Feb. Farm Fresh Challenge – 3D

farmfreshchallenge

Hey all! It’s Feb 1, that means its time to start a new Farm Fresh Challenge on The Greeting Farm Blog!

The challenge for this month is 3D, and this is so out of my comfort zone!!! But I did come up with something for you all!

TGF - Carnival wm.jpg

I coloured up SSSC no. 25 – Carnival  with my copic markers a while ago, and thought this was the perfect little project for it!

I broke out my Cameo and cut a square pillow box and all the pattern paper layers with the file, once it was all cut out I inked up all the pattern papers and then glued them onto the pillowbox, adding my image, some chipboard and wild orchid craft flowers and this little box was done!

I can’t want to see what you create this month!

Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas music..

Hey everyone, I cant believe we are already on day 8 of the Christmas card marathon here on my blog! If you didn’t see Lori’s card yesterday you should go back and check it out, it was lovely.

 

So here is the card I have for you today, seriously not my favorite, but they can’t all be something I love. So for today’s card I stamped the Tim Holtz season’s greetings sentiment and embossed it with Hero Arts gold embossing powder. The I took the trees from an older Tim Holtz set and stamped them with Prima white chalk ink, and it got stuck on the embossing, and I couldn’t get it off without making a mess so I just left it alone, The snowflakes are from the Hero Arts Christmas sentiment set I use all the time.

The Music notes, were a copy write free image I found online, that I put into my Silhouette software and traced (creating a cut file from it) and cut it on cardstock 3 times and layered them together, I then put 2 coats of Hero Arts gold embossing powder, then adhered it overtop of the card.

 

The patterned paper that the black paper is matted with is from the DIY Shop paper pad (it was a scrap from a while ago)

Merry Christmas by Lori Zielinski

Jess Christmas blog hop

Hello, and thanks so much for stopping by for this fabulous October Christmas Series.

Lorianna here with a creation, you can find my blog here.

Jess is a wonderful card maker and I have learned so much from her UStream Classes, and always have FUN too! Today’s focus is on using digital die cutters for Christmas cards. I have used my Silhouette Portrait for this card.

For the base of my card I used Recollections #110lb Cardstock.

The black and red layers are cardstock from Stamp’in Up.

I selected a file from, Doodle Pantry, called card cut 6, which is the white and green mat, which is a polka dot paper from a paper pad, not sure of brand name.  The ornate layer is a Silhouette file called merry christmas split damask (Design #67004) and resized it for the front of an A2 card.

I then used some organdy ribbon form my stash, (lol we all have one)

And a half pearls in each corner.

And popped this whole panel up on pop dots for some extra dimension.

These would be perfect Christmas cards for for mailing, without the bow.  Not much bulk and weight, so that means no added postage. And with all those Christmas cards, it really adds up.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the month’s cards, I am sure Jess and friends will bring lots of beautiful creations!!

Hugs
