One Last Christmas Card

Merry Day after Christmas.  Sure hope everyone had a wonderful time yesterday with friends and family.  I know I did.  I thought I would share one more Christmas themed card inspired by my parents.  They used to love going camping and would come visit us and park their big camper in our back yard.  The new little camper image from Just For Fun was perfect for this.

Dark blue was used for the background and was die cut with a star background die.  This was layered on yellow to show the stars.

The tree is the Stamptangle Christmas Tree, also from JFF. It was stamped on the blue background, then stamped a second time on a paint chip.  This was fussy cut and layered on top of the original.  The star was stamped on yellow, fussy cut, and heat embossed with Sparkle EmbossingPowder to make it sparkle.  This same embossing powder was added to the circular ornaments hanging from the tree.

The JFF CMP-Round Camper was watercolored and fussy cut.  The Sparkle EP was added to the little Christmas lights.  A glitter pen was used on the metal areas.

The “celebrate” was die cut from red cardstock and heat set with Sparkle EP.

Have a wonderful time relaxing after all the Christmas activities.

Coffee Joy

This week is the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop so I have been working on some coffee themed cards.  As a result, today's card is a mix of elegance and fun.  The elegance comes from the delicate, dry embossed background and decorative, elongated ornaments with bows.  The fun comes from the addition of the little coffee cups. 

Just For Fun's Stamptangle Teardrop Ornaments were colored with a mix of watercolors and Copic Markers.  They were fussy cut and popped up on the card front.  The Cup of Joe , also from JFF, was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink, punched out with a circle punch, and also popped up. 

The Joy To The World sentiment comes from JFF's Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sheet.  It was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on coordinating cardstock and layered on blue. I actually had another sentiment in mind, but lost the stamp in the mess on my craft table.  Decided this one would work just as well.  Being a coffee lover, it definitely brings joy to my world.

I know a few other coffee lovers that will love a Christmas card like this.
