If you’ve been visiting for a while, you’ll know I don’t really do DP … in fact, it’s probably only been used about three times this year! Today, however, I’ve pushed the boat out … my delightful and super talented friend, Michele (I Card Everyone) is GD at Muse this week and has challenged us to make three Christmas cards with just one sheet of DP … hmmmm! You’ll see Michele’s gorgeous trio when you scroll down (and when you visit her blog, you really don’t want to miss that!) … these are mine …
Here, I used a Bethleham border die from Taylored Expressions (courtesy of Ardyth … one of the BABES … thanks, my friend!), embossed the SSS sentiment in white onto it, and popped it up on foam dots on a panel of DP. The large SSS star was white embossed on the DP and filled with WOS. I masked the card base and sponged a black border before popping the scene up onto it on foam dots.
Here I used my newly aquired SSS Nativity stamps and dies. I cut the barn die three times, stacked them together, adhered the DP behind and fixed the panel to the card base. The Holy Family was stamped, die cut and coloured with Promarkers, with a touch of WOS added to the infant Jesus, and was then popped up in the barn. The sentiment is a blend of SSS (Christmas) and Papertrey (Joy) … I added a gem to the dot and some WOS to the lettering.
As well as linking these two cards up to Muse, I’m also playing along with …
Less Is More – Non Traditional Christmas Colours (no red or green)
SSS Wednesday – Anything Goes (second and third entry)
For this final card, I trimmed the DP, stamped the Hero Arts nativity and added WOS to the star and to the halo around the infant Jesus. Again, the base was masked and the black border was sponged on, I popped up the nativity panel onto it and added the Hero Arts sentiment.
In addition to Muse, this card is heading to …
Less Is More – Non Traditional Christmas Colours (not red or green)
Hero Arts Holiday Challenge – Anything Goes
A2Z Scrapbooking – Anything Goes (as long as it’s HA)
SSS Wednesday – Anything Goes (fourth entry)
Goodness, that was a full post! I’m really hoping to link all these up from here … the last time I did a multiple card post for the same challenges, it didn’t work
very well at all and needed to be undone so that each card could linked individually. Fingers crossed! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
