Welcome to February 2020 Crafty Elves! So glad you stopped by! If you were here last month you konw that we've added a couple Elves to the gang and there are four stops now! Be sure you stop to see Debra, Michael, and Jessica when you are done here for all of your Christmas card inspiration! We've all made a pact to create a Christmas Card a week in 2020 so that when December comes we're all ready to mail them!
Here are the Christmas Cards I've made this month:
I've decided to go CAS-Fridays on you this month! With so many beautiful holiday items it was an easy decision to use them while in the middle of this hectic tax season!
For this one I used the Starlequin stencil, some clear texture paste and Wow biodegradable glitter for my background. Also, I've gone with some non-traditional palettes for February. Sometimes it's hard to get inspired by green and red when my mind is headed towards Spring! So purple and blue it is! I used the Snowy Sayings stamp set for all of my sentiments and on this one, since the sentiment is the name of a song, I cut the Treble Clef die from purple glitter paper and added one of the Funky Flakes in white.
For this one, I created an ink blended background using some purple and blues and then heat embossed some of the flakes from the Snowy Sayings stamp set onto it. Then I cut the Flakey A2 Panel from white glitter paper, adhered some acetate to the back and added popup tape. I poured the sequin mix I wanted in the center of my embossed panel and popped the Flakey panel over it. Finally that magical sentiment and a few more sequins and lots of sparkly fun!
Well, of course I needed some plaid AND some coffee for you today! For this one I created a frame for my shaker using two bubble box dies. I just taped them one inside the other to keep them straight and ran them through my Gemini to create the frame and then created the shaker window the same as above. The sentiment, snowflake and little coffee cup and I'm all set for a warm winter wish.
I'm playing along with the Wow Embossing Powder Fans February Challenge to use Embossing Glitter/Glintz! I've used Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter on the snowflakes here and I'm up on the blog over at CAS-ual Fridays with this one today so if you want to know more details please do hop on over there and check it out!
