JustRite Non-Traditional Christmas Card Challenge!! =)

Pin It

HELLO and HAPPY Hump Day!!
I wanted to play along with the New
JustRite Friday Challenge #125 Non-Traditional Christmas!!
We were asked to create a Non-Traditional Colored Christmas Card!! I fell in LOVE with the Spellbinders Build a Wreath Die Set last year and I wanted to create a FUN Holiday Wreath!! I used ALL White for my Wreath and then I covered some of the Pieces with some Rock Candy Distress Glitter!! I think white is a pretty Non-Traditional Color for a Holiday Wreath and I LOVE the look!! I added some White Pearls for some BEAUTIFUL Ornaments and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I die Cut a Spellbinders Frame and layered the Wreath onto it!! I played around with several different backgrounds for this card because I couldn't decide if I wanted a whimsical design or a more regal and clean design!! I ended up using a Wood Grain Embossed Background that I splattered with some Ink in the Turquoise, Bubble Gum Pink, Soft Purple and Vanilla!! Then I took a Glue Pen and added some Glue to each of the splatters and added some of the Rock Candy Distress Glitter to them!! I LOVE the way it came together!! I used Foam Tape to pop up the Panel and then I added a Turquoise Stain Bow and a FUN Vintaj Metal Square and a Turquoise Button that I tied with some White Floss!! I stamped my Sentiment from the JustRite Christmas Vintage Labels Four Clear Stamp Set and my card was finished!!

I was also Inspired by this BEAUTIFUL Image!! I've seen the AWESOME Festive Friday Challenge but I have NEVER had the time to play along!! This week I'm HAPPY to say I have FINALLY been able to play along and I LOVE the way my card turned out!! I think my Wreath is a pretty close match to the one in the photo!! =)



What do you think!! I took a couple pictures of my card both inside and outside so hopefully you could see how BEAUTIFUL it Sparkles in the light!!?? I hope you'll stop by the Just Rite Blog to check out all of the other Creations!! =) THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! '

I've used some really FUN Party Bags from Pebbles as my starting point!! These type of bags are SO FUN to fill with ANYTHING your little heart desires!! =) I then die cut a Stitched Tag Die from Pretty Pink Posh and stamped my Image of Newton from the NEW Newton's Summer Vacation Stamp Set which is available today in the Newton's Nook Designs Store!! I wanted to incorporate some FUN Party Images like his hat and some Confetti and they were stamped from the Newton's Birthday Bash Stamp Set!! I layered my Sentiment too and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I colored my Images using some Colored Pencils and Gamsol!! Then I took a Wink of Stella Clear GLitter Pen and colored over the Party Hat and the Tube for a little added Sparkle and FUN!! The Large Burlap Bow is by My Mind's Eye and I think its the PERFECT way to finish off these Bags!! You could also make your own with little trouble!! =)
For the Second Tag: I used the same Bag and Die for my Tag Base but I stamped and Paper Pieced three of the Sweet little Cupcakes from the Newton's Nook Designs Love al a Carte Stamp Set!! I stamped onto some Glitter Paper for the Cupcake Lining and then some Patterned Paper for the Tops and the Hearts and Fussy Cut everything out and glued it together!! I added some Wink of Stella Glitter Pen in Clear to the Sprinkles and the Hearts after I colored the Sprinkles with my Colored Pencils!! I LOVE how YUMMY they look!! =) I stamped two different Sentiments to create a really FUN Personalized Tag!! =) One is from the Newton's Birthday Bash Stamp Set and the other is from the Baskets of Wishes Stamp Set!!

Don't you agree aren't these FUN!!?? I LOVE ALL of them!!


I wanted to create a Port Hole style design for the front of my card so I started by stamping the Waves from the NND Beach Party Stamp Set that was shared on Tuesday!! I stamped it twice and fussy cut it out to layer it for the base of my Port Hole!!  I paper pieced the Image and used some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen for the Sunglasses!! I added a Die Cut Circle Ring from both Craft Foam and Patterned Paper for my Port Hole and then glued it over the Image!! I LOVE the dimension!! If you wanted you could also create a Shaker Card using the same technique only adding some acetate to the back side of the Port Hole before you glued it over the Image!! I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and a couple Black Gems and my card was finished!!

Reverse Confetti Sketch Challenge!! =)

Pin It

(This is my Second Post for today!! For my Newton's Nook Designs Release Blog Post Please Scroll Down!! THANKS!!  =)




Hello!!
I'm stopping in to share the card I've made for the FUN Reverse Confetti Sketch For You to Try Challenge over on their Blog!!
I LOVED the Sketch and had some time to play along!!
I decided to use the New RC Here We Go Stamp and Die Set and I just LOVE how CUTE this set is!! I've used the RC Tag Me Die Set and RC Love Note Die Set to die cut the Scalloped Frame I just cut off the scallops so I could use the inside frame shape for the bottom half of the tag!! I colored it using some PTI Blueberry Sky Ink!! I then stamped my sentiment in Black and layered it underneath my Tag!! I wanted to have a FUN Recessed Tag Design so I stamped the Plane onto some cardstock using the same PTI Blueberry Ink and then I used some foam tape to pop it up away from the Tag that I Die Cut the Plane Image from using the coordinating Die!! I stamped the propeller in Black and then Fussy cut it out and I wanted it to be dimensional too so I only glued down the center!! I LOVE the look!! I also only wanted part of the flying trail so I only inked up a portion of it and then stamped it onto the top of the tag!! I've used some papers from the Crate Paper Boys Rule and Fancy Pants Everyday Circus 6x6 Pads!!

 

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!

Today's Set is called Newton's Daydream and it is as Sweet as can be!! =)
Don't you agree!!?? I had SO much FUN creating with this set!!
I started my card by stamping onto some Patterned Paper because I wanted my Newton to be a Calico-ish Color!! I added some shading using a colored pencil and some Gamsol!! I paper pieced the entire Image together using different colors of cardstock and I added some more shading and gems to the centers of the Flowers!! I used a couple Envelopes from My Mind's Eye as FUN layers for my background and I really LOVE the way it turned out!! I stamped the Bubble Image and added my sentiment and then fussy cut it out and added it to the top portion of my card!! For some Sparkle I splattered some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Antique Rose and it gave a really neat Vintage feel to my project!! LOVE how it looks in real life!! =)
