Tealight Card


Dies R Us is presenting the winner with a $10 gift voucher to our winner this month!

Only six more days until Christmas, and here is a tealight card I made-

 and here is what it looks like with a darkened room and a battery operated tealight-

Here are the materials I used to make this card-
  1.  Dies: christmas tree (Hampton Arts, which also has garland stamps included in this set, but this one would work just as well), frame (Spellbinders Labels Nine), holly leaves (Spellbinders Holly Motif-but I'm going to buy this one!), sentiment (Tim Holtz Christmas Words, but there is a lot of different Christmas words with a lot of different manufacturers.)
  2. Paper: silver cardstock (Tim Holtz Kraft Metalllics), teal metallic (scrap bin), teal snow patterned (unknown).
  3. Embossing Folder: holly damask (Anna Griffin Cuttlebug), polka dots (Cuttlebug).
  4. Embellies: Snowflake rhinestones (Michaels).
 Thank you for visiting, and have a Merry Christmas!

  2. Paper: Kraft, dark green, red, light green, white cardstock. Patterned paper (My Mind's Eye-Brown Paper Christmas).

Die Cut Diva's Winter Challenge

It's December at Die Cut Diva's, our challenge theme is "Winter", & our wonderful sponsor is-

And here is my project:

I was watching this tutorial by Jennifer McGuire and decided to try it, since I already had alcohol inks and Yupo. I had such fun I ran out of Yupo! Here are the materials I used for these cards-
  1. Dies: Joy and Seasons Greetings (Impression Obsession), ornament dies (Delicate Ornaments Thinlits-Stampin' Up, but these would work just as well), circles-backing ornaments (MFT stitched circles).
  2. Paper: gold, silver shimmer paper (Michaels), light teal cs, blue green cs, gold matte paper (stash).
  3. Ink: Turqoise, Patina, Mermaid, Pool, Stream, Gold, Silver (Ranger Alcohol Ink).
  4. Other: gold, silver glitter spray f(Krylon).
I ended up using too much alcohol, and color was rubbing off on me. I used the glitter spray lightly to seal the finished panels. I thought it added some more sparkle, which is always good on Christmas cards!

Thanks for visiting!
