The Girlio’s Christmas Projects

30 Dec

So, I didn’t get pictures of all the fun things The Girlio made for others this Christmas before she gave them away.  But I did get some, and thought I would share them today.
Here are a few of the cards:
And here are two of the perler gifts she made:
She also made a bunch of perler Christmas trees, a perler Christmas stocking, a perler R2D2, and probably a few more I am forgetting, but at least you can get a feel for some of the things she has been up to!  🙂
I am entering these cards into this challenge on her behalf:

Another Christmas Card?

29 Dec

So, I guess I am still in the mood to make Christmas cards after all.  🙂
I won a gift card to Di’s Digi Stamps from a challenge at Crafty Hazelnut, and I just couldn’t wait to play with the fun images I picked out!  This one was a fireplace image, and I just grabbed a few leftover MFT yetis, and my card was done!
Supplies: Digital Image: Di’s Digi Stamps; Patterned Paper: K & Company; Stamps: MFT, Hero Arts (Sentiment); Dies: MFT; Markers: Sharpies, Spectrum Noir, Copics, Wink of Stella
I used lots of Wink of Stella on the fireplace image, so there is tons of sparkle!  And, I don’t mind already having one card made for next year!  🙂

A Birthday Card

28 Dec

This week, my mom came over and we had a fun crafting session!
I made two cards and just have to assemble the stamped pieces for four more, so that is a success for me.  🙂
Here is the first one I made-a birthday card:
Supplies: Stamps: Mama Elephant, MFT; Inks: Tim Holtz Distress, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark; Other: Card Stock, MISTI, Foam Tape
This was my very first card made with my new Christmas present-a MISTI!!!  And, I already don’t know how I lived without it.  🙂
There is no way I could have made all these images as crisp and clear, PLUS Distress Inks are not stamping inks, but being able to stamp multiple times, I could get great impressions.
I REALLY love the final result!

A Fun Coffee Gift Tag

27 Dec

A few weeks ago, I posted some fun Christmas gift card holders.  These were actually based off a coffee-themed one I had made.  Since Christmas is over, I thought I would share it today.
Here is the front:
And here is the back:
Supplies: Stamps: Paper Smooches; Dies: Lawn Fawn; Punch: Fiskars
I stamped and paper-pieced the flowers together, and then did a little surgery on the design.  The flower is actually coming out of the cup on the stamp, but I cut the cup off and made it look like the flowers were drinking out of them, which turned out really cute!
I really like how this turned out, and will be making more in the future, I’m sure!  🙂

Card Monday-Some Tags

26 Dec

I know I said I was done posting Christmas cards, but I thought I would post some gift tags I made-especially as this design could easily be used throughout the winter.
Supplies: Stamps: Paper Smooches; Dies: Lawn Fawn; Cloud Punch: Fiskars; Markers: Spectrum Noir, Sharpie, Wink of Stella
These are the same design as the gift card holders and a card I posted earlier. I just punched holes, and tied them around tins of homemade Christmas goodies for some fun and easy gifts.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Card 49

24 Dec

Merry Christmas Eve!

Today I am sharing my last Christmas card for 2016!

This is the card I made for The Girlio, and I love the final result:

Supplies: Card Stock: MFT (Snow Cone), Recollections (White), Unknown (Yellow); Stamps: Lawn Fawn; Dies: Lawn Fawn, Silhouette-Lori Whitlock; Markers: Spectrum Noir, Sharpie; Wink of Stella

I cut the mountains with my Silhouette (the same ones I used in the past two cards), and added them to some blue card stock.

Then I die cut the house border.  I cut a matching hillside border die and glued it on top of the house border die to add some stitching to the snow under the houses.  I glued that piece to the mountains.

I  cut the notched slit with my Silhouette, and then die cut a different hillside border die along the top edge.  I mounted the notched piece using doubled-up foam tape, and added a stamped tree to the edge.  I also cut a tabbed piece with the Silhouette for the slider pull tab. My unicorn was added onto the tabbed piece with tripled-up foam tape.

I took the leftover piece cut out when the notched slit was created, and stamped part of my sentiment and adhered it into the slit.  I die cut some stars for the tree, and one for the unicorn to hold so that it looks like she is decorating the tree when she slides over.

I added Wink of Stella to the mountains, the stars, and the unicorn’s horn, hair, hooves, and scarf.  And, there you have it!  I love how part of the sentiment is revealed when the unicorn slides over-fun!  🙂

I hope you enjoyed all of my Christmas cards this year.  Merry Christmas!!!!
