Layered Poinsettia Christmas Card

Layering is such a great way to create a luxurious looking card whilst using up those pesky little oddments that you don't want to throw away!

Gold, copper, granite and merlot - a luxurious combination!

Each of the leaves in the Poinsettia were gold heat embossed onto Vellum and then coloured on the back with Stampin' Blends in green and red.

I then scored them down the middle and pressed the fold with my bone folder before building and adhering the poinsettia following the instructions set out by my friend and fellow Crazy Crafter, the talented Jessie Holton.

Beautiful Copper Christmas Baubles

This card took a little time to evolve!  I stamped the bauble with Bright Copper Shimmer Paint onto the Early Espresso several weeks ago and then it languished on my desk.

The card speaks for itself really but I'll pass on a couple of tips.

Once I'd heat embossed and punched out the greeting, I edged the label with Bright Copper Shimmer Paint using a paintbrush.

Before I cut the Detailed Bauble from the copper sheet, I placed some Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back - so it was really easy to adhere it to the Champagne Foil circle.

I just wish I'd noticed the little curl in the copper layer of my card before I took the photo!  Oh well, I'm off now to straighten it out!

Thank you for visiting.

Punch Art Peppa Pig Birthday Card

This card is for my little Great Niece who is besotted with Peppa Pig!  Personally, I find Peppa Pig very unappealing but then, it's been a long time since I was three years old!

Peppa Pig Punch Art card for a small girl
The blue background is embossed and then I used a sponge dauber and Whisper White Craft Ink to highlight those stars.

Peppa Pig herself is made with a couple of the Layering Ovals Framelits and a Layering Circle Framelit.

Her hands were punched out with the Fox Builder Punch.  The eyes were punched with the Cookie Builder Punch.

Her ears are made with a small die in the Bouquet Bunch Framelits set.  Her shoes are actually little bits cut from the bow in that same die set.

For her tail, I confess, I rummaged in my collection of retired punches and used the Confetti Punch because .. well it's perfect for a pigs tail!

Arms and legs are just little strips of cardstock.

Once assembled, I used a Stampin' Blend to outline her and add the shadow underneath her.

I hope this pig will pass the inspection of our little Peppa Pig afficionado!

Thank you for visiting.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest: Lisa Curcio

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters' Blog Hop with our Special Guest stamper, Lisa Curcio - we are thrilled to have Lisa join us this month and so excited to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by her.

Whether you are starting the blog hop here at my blog, Stephanie Fischer - The Crafty Thinker, or have come from the person before me, be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey through the blog hop.

I really admire Lisa's creativity and style, so it was a great pleasure to spend time looking through her work and a real headache to choose just one to CASE!  In fact, this is my second choice.  After I'd created the first card, I realised that it bore a marked resemblance to a card I made last year - so I'll share it another time!

A simple Christmas featuring a Detailed Deer and the Woodland Embossing Folder
This card came together so quickly and easily that I made three!  Two in black (for the other black one, I used the black sequin trim instead of the black cord) and one in copper.  But I suspect I'll be making more to add to my Christmas card stash!

The copper version of the Woodland Deer Christmas card - any colour combination would work!
For the base card (5.75" square) I used Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock (measuring 4" square) with the Woodland embossing folder and added a small border of copper foil sheet to it.  TIP:  I cut out the centre of the copper layer to use another time.

Having wrapped the length of Copper Trim around the embossed piece twice and fastened it at the back with a piece of sticky tape, I adhered the layer to the base card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The deer from the Detailed Deer die set was cut three times, once in copper or black foil and twice in a thick piece of white cardstock I found in my craftroom.  I had placed Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of the cardstock before cutting out the deer.  This made it easy to layer the die cuts on top of one another to form a laminated, thicker and stronger deer which I then adhered to the card.
