Merry Christmas Joy Ride!!!

Tuesday is here again, and Christmas will be here in approximately 17 days and there is no snow in sight.  Hopefully, some will come before then to create a winter wonderland for Santa.  For my post today, I have used the stamp called Joy Ride, from the “Joys of  the Seasons” which is the latest release from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  I added Be Creative Sookwang Tape around the outside edge of the card base then added Glitter Ritz.  The same was done around the sentiment.  Frosted Lace Stickles was used around the trim of the hats, and mitts.

Cascade Card Tutorial

Tuesday is here again and for today’s post I have a Cascade Card Tutorial.  I originally saw this tutorial on Beccy’s Place.  It is a rather unique shape and does make a rather nice card if you are looking for something different.

Inside of Card

Supplies used:

Step 1:  Take a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock and cut it to be 6″ x 12″.

Step 2:  Starting from the left hand side and on the long side score at 2″, 4″, 8″ and 10″.  Fold in along the scorelines as mountain, valley, valley and mountain.

Step 3:  Measure 2″ down from the top left hand corner of the card.  Draw a line from the mark that was just made to the top of the 4″ score line.  Do the same on the right hand side using the top of the 8″ scoreline.  Cut along both of these lines.  Keep both pieces.

Step 4:  Design Paper Preparation.  Whatever design paper you decide to use, cut 1 piece to be 5 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.  This is to be used for the inside middle part of the card.  Cut 4 pieces of paper to be 5 3/4″ x 1 3/4″.  Use the triangular off cuts to get the correct angles for the strips and make sure that you trim the panels in the right direction

The image Penquin Love, was coloured with Copic Markers.  Polar White Flower Soft was used on the trim of the hats.  The image was then fuzzy cut and mounted to the middle panel.  The sentiment was added to the left front panel.  Faux Snow was also added to the middle panel.

Jingle Bells….

Another week has gone by and for my post today, I have used three stamps from High Hopes Rubber Stamps  newest release “Joys of the Seasons“.  I also created a couple of embellishments using the Heidi Swapp Minc machine.

I used a piece of holographic reactive foil with a transfer sheet and ran this through the Heidi Swapp Minc Machine and used a snowflake punch to make the snowflake.  I did the same with the green foil for the holly leaves but used a holly leaves punch.  The Heidi Swapp minc machine is great tool to have among your supplies.  So many things can be done with it and this journey has only begun.
