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.
