One last Christmas card

 

Here’s one last Christmas card from one of our fabulous designers, Gloria Stengel

 

Merry Christmas, Hampton Art Fans! I hope you have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

 

Gloria-Dec-25-post-1

 

I have one last Christmas card to share with you, Santa checking his list, surrounded by some dry embossed snowflakes. He is looking great in his "instagram" frame!

 

Gloria-Dec-25-post-2

 

I stamped the Graphic 45 Santa's List image with Schoolhouse Mix'd Media Inx, then embossed with clear embossing powder. I stamped the image again onto some scrap paper and trimmed it out to make a mask. I placed the mask over my embossed image, and then stamped over the top with the text from the Art Warehouse Believe in Christmas set. I stamped the text several times with Chestnut Roan chalk ink.

 

Gloria-Dec-25-post-3

 

I created the frame by stamping the Polaroid image from the Ki Flashback Click Click set with Pheasant Gold pigment ink. I embossed the image with clear embossing powder then trimmed it out. I cut out the center and place the Santa image behind the frame.

 

Gloria-Dec-25-post-4

I decorated the inside of the card to match.

Designer Notes:

Instead of step-by-step directions I want to give you some tips on how to make a group of cards that coordinate, but aren’t exactly the same. Some crafters simply hate to craft for the holidays because it can take you pretty far out of your normal process – especially if you try to save time by creating the same project many times over. Hopefully these tips will help you create for the holidays in a timely manner without the creativity-stifling necessity of mass-production.

1: Choose one paper collection or pad and one color of ink. This will help you focus on design and not waste extra time choosing supplies between each card.

2: Use standard-size cards that are all the same and come with matching envelopes. I used three A2 size cards with envelopes. If you do this, you not only standardize your cost for mailing the cards, but, you don’t have to schlep through the process of making envelopes when your mojo is all gone.

3: Choose a single theme for your stamping. It was much easier for me to choose stamps when I decided that all my cards would have an ornament theme. I didn’t have to agonize over the perfect stamp for each card because I only had to pick from stamps that fit my theme.

4: Embellish sparingly. Basically I decided on two specific types of embellishment (gems and fiber/ribbon) – which I used with an editorial eye. Using restraint with the embellishments will help with shipping cost, time, and fitting those cards into your existing envelopes.

5: Lastly, break some of the rules. Don’t let the rules cripple you. A cute, glossy button wasn’t part of the original plan, but when I saw it laying on my table I just couldn’t resist. When crafting for the holidays, follow the rules second but follow your heart first. That way, you can’t go wrong.

KI Memories: 2 cards and a tag

 

Here’s a word… and awesome projects from KI Memories Design Team Member Gretchen McElveen

Gretchen McElveen_Santa card

 

Gretchen McElveen_Joyful card

I know, I know, the new "Flashback" line is not for Christmas. But I can't get enough of it! AND the "B" side of the "Viewfinder" sheet of patterned paper is that cool gold & white chevron and I thought it could pass for kind of Christmas-y. Combine that patterned paper with some glittery paper and stickers and you've got quite a nice foundation for some pretty Christmas projects! So I thought I would try it. I pulled out some KI Memories Christmas Puffies, a sheet of kraft cardstock, and a couple of large circle punches and I was ready to make some stuff. I made a 5" x 5" card and a 4.25" x 5.5" card out of the kraft cardstock. The KI glitter cardstock and the "Viewfinder"/gold & white chevron patterned paper were used as the background papers for both cards. Then I used the punched circles, glitter stickers, and Puffies to embellish each card. I used lots of foam adhesive here to give the cards lots of dimension.

Gretchen McElveen_Noel tag

When I finished the cards I used the scraps I had left over to make a tag. I had forgotten about the red chevron washi tape that goes with the "Flashback" line. Shame on me! But it too is Christmas-y enough to use for Christmas projects! So I made sure to use it on this tag. I really stink at making tags but I thought this one turned out pretty cute!

Merry Christmas y'all and thanks for stopping by the blog today!
