4CC #328 - No Pattern Paper

Thursday, December 8, 2016

Happy Thursday!

Today there is a new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and I am your hostess for the week!  Wahoo!

I'm looking for projects --- any kind of paper crafty project, BUT, you can't use any manufactured pattern paper.  

PAPER: White, Kraft and Wax Lips Red (Bazzill)cardstock
INK: None
EXTRAS: Nordic emboss folder (Taylored Expressions); Stocking & Sentiment die (Stampin' Up); holly die (Memory Box); Rectangle stitched die (Lil Inker's Designs).

As you see, I used an embossing folder to create a background pattern.  I loved these adorable stocking dies from Stampin' Up and thought they went along so well with the Nordic emboss folder I used.  

Go check out the rest of the Chicks' projects for more amazing inspiration without pattern paper.  Then, come play along and share your non-patterned paper projects.  We love having you play along!

Crafty Chick Blessings!

Poinsettia Greetings

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Sharing another card today ----

I have been wanting to use this gorgeous leaf cutting plate I bought from Reverse Confetti, and playing around with it, I paired it with a poinsettia die by Spellbinders.  I love how it turned out!

I used glitter paper to cut out the poinsettia and the pink berry twigs.  I stamped the sentiment in Pink Pirouette ink. The picture doesn't do it justice as the flower really shimmers.


I chose a Theme challenge -

25 Days of Paper Sweeties Christmas, Part Two

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Happy Tuesday!  
Did you know today is St. Nick's Day?
In religious terms, it's The Feast Day of St. Nicholas.  (Just a little info there.)

I have another project I created for 
The 25 Days of Christmas with Paper Sweeties!

I used the Window Sweet cuts to make a Christmas tag.  I had some green marble background paper I had made a while back using the shaving cream technique.  I cut the trees from it.  I also cut two partial trees from white glitter paper.  Then, I took the banner die from the Wagon Sweet Cuts set, placed it on the bottom of the halves to create snowcaps for two trees.

Christmas Spirit

Monday, December 5, 2016

Happy Monday!

Things are gearing up at the Salkeld house for the holidays. Got the tree up, almost finished shopping, full into card creating, finishing up decorating tomorrow.  I have to admit, however, I'm already tired of Christmas music already.  I mean there's 20 days left and I've binged christmas music a tad too much too soon!  LOL

Yet I can never get enough of Christmas cards!  And so here is one of several posts I have for throughout today....

The challenge at Casology this past week was "Candle" and I had the perfect die for it.


You can't tell well in the photo, I used white shimmer paper for the ribbon.
