Two Paper Divas

Most of my Christmas cards are done and in the mail.  This was one of the last cards I made.
I used the Candy Jar stamp from Two Paper Divas and used the Candy #1 stamp set to fill the jar.  I love these suckers.  I colored them with my copic markers and then went over the top of them with liquid glue and put glitter over the glue before it dried.  Such a pretty effect.  The Holiday Greetings sentiment is from Two Paper Divas Holiday Sentiments stamp set.  I love this set because you have several greetings to pick from. 

Be sure and follow Two Paper Divas blog to see the new stamp sets them come out with.

DT with Tracie





Today I am sharing a project that I am using for a Christmas gift.  This really shows how versatile the digital images are.  I am using one of my favorite Christmas images from Meljen’s Designs called Christmas Star Snowman.  He is so adorable and I have used this stamp in so many different sizes. I also used the Merry Christmas Word Art from Meljen's Designs also.  Seemed to be the perfect fit for the holder.

For this gift card holder, I started with a piece of red cardstock cut 4” x 11”.  You then score the long pieces at 2 ½ and 6 ¾.


I folded over the red cardstock at the 2 ½ scored line.  I then took one of my 2 ½” circle dies and cut the circle out placing it off center. 

For the designer paper pieces I cut the green sheets 2” x 3 ¾” and ¾” x 3 ¾”.  I cut the striped paper 1 ¾” x 3 ½” and ½” x 3 ½”.    I used the large Stampin Up scallop punch, 1 3/4" circle punch red card stock and then I cut the image out with a 1 1/2" circle punch.  I colored the image with my copic markers and added stickles to make the image pop. 
 Once you cut the center out of the card, you will easily see where to place the scallop circle with the image.
In the inside, I used the retired slit punch from Stampin Up to hold the gift card in place.  This was such a fun project and perfect for the holidays.


Remember that Meljen's Designs is having their 50% off sale until December 15.  Check the store out today because she has added several new images and why not get them while they are on sale.




Two Paper Divas

Have you seen some of the new stamps at Two Paper Divas?  They released some new stamps and I decided to use the sentiment stamp.  I am a real fan of the Candy Jar Stamp so I stamped on white cardstock and the lid on designer paper and cut it out.  It doesn't show real well but after stamping the jawbreakers from the Candy #1 stamp set, I colored them with my copic markers and then used my crystal effects over the whole jar to give it a glass effect.
Be sure and check out the new stamps at Two Paper Divas.  They come out with new stamps every month.  They are just so much fun!

It's A Wrap - Challenge #240 Meljens Designs

Today will be the final post of the year for Meljen's Designs because Melissa wants everyone to devote their time and energy through the holidays with family and friends.  Another reason I love Meljen's Designs.

Today's challenge is fitting because it is called It's A Wrap and the challenge was to use wrapping paper. 
You will see the background of my card is actually red and silver wrapping paper that I had found and thought it would  be perfect for this design.  I used one of my favorite holiday digital stamps called Christmas Star Snowman.  What I actually love about this stamp is that it does not require alot of coloring.  I do love to add glitter to this image to make it pop.

Hope you enjoyed the card. 
Remember that you still have time to take advantage of a sale at Meljen's Designs.  Who doesn't love a sale?  Now is the time to grab all those adorable digital images that you love.

Two Paper Divas

This is the week that I hope to finish up all my Christmas cards and put them in the mail.  Today I am using "Jingle All The Way" from Two Paper Divas. 
I thought it would be fun to use music for my background of this card.  I colored the image with my copic markers.  Adding a little bling to the card and it makes a cute holiday card.

Two Paper Divas

I think I have almost completed my goal of 50 Christmas cards.  They are my favorite card to make.
For today's card I used O Christmas Tree stamp from Two Paper Divas. What I love about the Two Paper Diva stamps are that you can buy them in the digital format or clear stamp.  I stamped the tree, colored it with my copic markers and then pop dotted it to my dies that I had cut out.  The banner sentiment was Two Paper Divas Holiday sentiments

I hope you enjoyed another Christmas card.  Only a few more weeks until Christmas will be here.

Meljens Designs Challenge #238

I just love the Christmas images over at Meljen's Designs.  For the challenge today, the theme is tags.

I decided to use a tag for my background to make the image pop.  Today's card I used the stamp "Bitty Christmas Tree Bears".  I think it is adorable.  I used my copics to color and a few stickles to make it pop.

Be sure and check out some of the other projects from the design team for this challenge.  Such a creative group.
