CHRISTMAS CARDS WITH THE ROBIN'S NEST

The Robin's Nest's Christmas Collection paper quickly and easily makes some really cute Christmas Cards.  Today I am sharing two cards that I created that were featured on The Robin's Nest Blog. The first 6" x 6" card I made uses Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock and Cindy Lou Presents Cardstock for its card base.



I then used Heartfelt Creations Trees Die with the Lime Green Glitter Cardstock to die cut a Christmas tree and then I made the trunk out of Brown Mini Dew Drops from the Black Forest Mini Dew Drops and decorated the tree with Ornament Mini Dew Drops and Goldenberry Dew Drops.  I used a star from the Halloween Chipboard set for the top of the tree.


I stamped the sentiment on White Glitter Cardstock that had been cut with an Classic Ovals Die and matted it on the green part of the cardstock from the Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock that had been die cut with the Lacey Ovals Die.  I finished by adding a few more Dew Drops to the bottom corner of the card.



For my next card I matted a piece of Cindy Lou Presents Cardstock onto Cindy Lou Dot Glitter Cardstock to create the 6" x 6" card base.  On the presents on the design paper I added Gold & Stardust Stickles for a little extra sparkle.  I then stamped the sentiment on White Glitter Cardstock that had been die cut with the Classic Ovals Die and matted it on Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock that had been die cut with a Scalloped Ovals Die.  I added that to the card front with pop dots.  I then added some Christmas Dew Drops and Metallic Gold Dew Drops to the bottom corner.




I hope you enjoyed my fun Christmas cards today.  Have a great day!

This month Want2Scrap is teaming up with Paper House Productions.  Today on the Want2Scrap Blog I have a card that I created featuring Want2Scrap's Mullberry Paper Flowers and Bling along with the beautiful Paper House Production Blossoms 6" x 6" Paper Pad.


I matted the sentiment "you're so very special" from the Paper House Production Blossoms 6" x 6" Paper Pad on Bazzill cardstock that had been die cut with Spellbinders Majestic Elements Marvelous Squares and then added White Pearls to each corner.  I die cut the leaves from Bazzill cardstock using Heartfelt Creations Gift Ensemble Die (leaves die) and then adhered the Mulberry Paper Flowers - 5/8" PurpleMulberry Paper Flowers - 3/8" Purple and Mulberry Paper Flowers - 3/8" Pink with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive to the leaves.


Next I added the Swirls - White Pearls - 4" x 4" and also additional Lavendar Pearls and Purple Pearls to finish the card.

JEANS POCKET CARD WITH HEARTFELT CREATIONS

Hi everyone!  I am back today to share another card that I created with the beautiful Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower Collection. This collection includes some cute denim paper and I just could not resist detail cutting out the jeans pocket and creating a sweet card with it.




Of course I need to put something in the pocket, so I die cut a few of the tags from the design paper using the HCD 745 Luggage and Tags Die and tied them up with some twine and tucked them in the pocket.  


Have a great day!

THE ROBIN'S NEST FLEUR COLLECTION


Today I want to share with you a couple cards that were featured on The Robin's Nest Blog that showcases the beautiful Fleur Cardstock line. For my first card I made the 5" x 7" card base out of Admiral Fleur Glitter Linen Cardstock and Cathedral Specialty Paper and then wrapped a gold ribbon, finishing it with a bow, around the top of the card front.



I used the sentiment from the Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock and distressed it with Tattered Rose Distress Ink before matting it on Cathedral Specialty Paper and then I matted that on Wedgewood Glitter Cardstock that had been die cut with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles die and added it to the card front. Using a leaves die from Heartfelt Creations, I die cut the leaves from Khaki Glitter Cardstock and added some flowers.  I then added Goldenberry Dew Drops and Grapes & Leaves Dew Drops around the sentiment.


For my next card I created the 6" x 6" card base out of the Pink Glitter Cardstock and Blue Fleur Cardstock. I wrapped white pleated ribbon around the top of the card front     I also used a cut out from the Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock (highlighting a few words with a pink Copic marker) and matted it on Pink Glitter Cardstock and then adhered it to the card front with pop dots.  I then added Precious Girl Diamond Dew DropsDaughter Mini Dew Drops and Petunia Dew Drops.



Have a great day!
