Jesus, The Reason For the Season

Hello! It's Joy back with a Design Team project over at Crafty Creations Challenges #378!  Today I am so happy to be using Bugaboo's Christmas Words- Jesus digital stamp,  For this project I printed the image out twice. The first time slightly larger and the second smaller, so that the image would stand out a bit more.  Speaking of standing out, I think a lot of times we forget the reason for Christmas, and I encourage you all to take out some time out from shopping, creating, and remember or share the reason.  I hope that you enjoy my card and look forward to seeing your challenge entries.  Without further ado..

Matthew 2:10 KJV  When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.




Products used:  brown cs, white cs, ivory shimmer cs, Recollections Christmas Cabin designer paper,  gold metallic cs, spectrum noir alcohol markers, Jot gold glitter pen, Gold Stickles, ivory lace, Darcie stripe embossing folder, and Bugaboo Christmas Words- Jesus

A Snowflake's Promise

Hello!  I  had so much fun making these beautiful snow flakes, and the ink blending to make a winter sky!  I am in love with snow flakes this year, as they bring uniqueness with each one as they fall.  I hope that I was able to capture their magic in this card? For this card I used a glittery ornament on the front as it was the challenge item for a club I attend each months.  What do you think?

Merry Skating

Hello!  I hope you have had a great week so far!  Today I bring you cute Ice skaters in a winter scene.  This reminds me when my Dad took me ice skating as a child.  I had no grace, and fell often, but I cherish those winter days with my Pops.  For this card I decided to make a tunnel card, because I had one due to a swap mate.  Thankfully Jennifer McGuire did a wonderful tutorial , as I had forgotten how to attach my inner layer.  I love this stamp set too,  from Hero Arts.  Without further ado here it is....

New to me Pan Pastels, the Color of Fall

Hello!  It's, Joy and I am back today with a fall card.  This is my first time ever using Pan Pastels, but I think it may be one of my go to's.  I have a lot to learn, but i really enjoyed playing and mixing the colors, as I only own 5!  I stamped in espresso chocolate, and then started playing with colors!  I do hope you like it.  I made this for my dad as he lives in the south and misses the fall colors.

Products used:  Rubber Cottage Collage Bridge stamp, Pan Pastels, just a note stamp, oatmeal cs, orange/red cs, red ribbon.  Espresso Truffle Memento Ink, Wink of Stella, and Krylon Matte finish spray.
