Christmas tags with Ornaments

Merry Christmas!

Can you believe that it is already time to share our
Christmas ideas!

I have been working on a series of Christmas tags.

These tags are large  6x11 inches,
so they are for large gifts,
but they can also be used for ornaments on your
Christmas tree.

I will call this tag the ornament tag.

I have used 3 products on this tag,

Cindy Lou Dot Glitter Cardstock Christmas CutOuts Lime Green Glitter Chipboard

This is just a simple tag with ornaments cut out from the glitter cut out sheet
and added to the tag.  All other products are from my scrapbook stash.

Have a great Christmas season!

Today I am coming with very quick card but I think t is cute

I made card with Snowman

I have used:

First I cut four squares from my card stock, one a little bit smaller than other. I used two as my background
From the other two squares I cut shapes so they can look like a hills
I added some snow paste on them so they can look like covered with snow
I started adding my hills and between them I placed my snowman
In the end I added two clouds (covered in snow paste) and snowflakes. My snowman got eyes, buttons and nose made from dew drops and in the end I added Happy Christmas and placed everything on craft card base.

Hope you like my card :)

Believe in Santa Layout

Jingle bells add the perfect finishing touch to my Holiday layout so I created some mini faux bells with Round Metallic Gold Dew Drops.  Let me show you how.
Robin's Nest Supplies: Red Snowflake Cardstock, Red Rope Glitter Cardstock, Metallic Gold Dew Drops, Belgian Chocolate Boy Rub-on, Red Glitter Alpha Stickers, Glitter Holiday Word Titles, Dew Dew Glue

Other Supplies: Jingle Bell Rubber Stamp (Anita's), Gold Embossing Powder (Stampendous), VersaMark Ink Pad (Tsukineko), Heat Gun (Ranger), StazOn White Ink Pad (Tsukineko), White Gelly Roll Pen (Sakura), red / black / green / white cardstock, ribbon, permanent black marker, four photos

1. Adhere a strip of red cardstock over Snowflake Cardstock covering the bottom two rows.

2. Stamp six jingle bell images onto black cardstock using VersaMark Ink and heat emboss with gold powder. Carefully fussy cut them out and tie six mini bows with 1/8" ribbon. Place them in a row at the top of the red cardstock and attach the bells as if they are hanging.

3. Select four photos. Matte the main photo with green cardstock and attach a 1" wide ribbon along the lower edge of the photo. Apply the sentiment from the Belgian Chocolate Boy Rub On Set directly to the photo.

4. Next, create a frosty edge by applying white permanent ink unevenly to the edge of another photo using a sponge applicator. Use a gentle tapping motion to make a hazy looking edge and then set aside to dry.

5. Embellish the final two photos with faux mini jingle bells. Use a black permanent marker to draw the opening slits at the bottom of the bell. Attach three Metallic Gold Dew Drops as faux jingle bells vertically along the edge.

6. Cut the title "Santa" from Glitter Word Holiday Titles. Matte it with red cardstock and trim away a triangular end making a banner style title. To help the word stand out, trace around each letter with a white gel pen. Add the word "in" with mini alphabet stickers. Adhere Red Glitter Alpha Stickers to spell the word "Believe" onto white cardstock and finish off by trimming away a triangular end and matting with green cardstock. Adhere the finished title.

Snowflake Card Box

Hello Everyone.
Thank You for visiting
The Chattering Robin's.
Michelle here, sharing my latest project,
a "recycled" box, 
redesigned to hold Christmas Cards
through the holiday season.

The Robin's Nest Supply List
Winter Snowflakes Cardstock
Winter Snowflakes Glitter Chipboard
Blue Glitter Chipboard
Glacier Diamond Dew Drops (blue shade)
Precious Girl Diamond Dew Drops (clear blue shade)
Belgian Chocolate Mini Dew Drops (clear blue shade)
*Sponsored Products Used*
Scraperfect Best Glue Ever
Scraperfect Embellie Gellie 
I began my project by first removing the unsightly, suede material from the boxes exterior.
 I then measured & cut the Winter Snowflakes Cardstock, for each side of the box, and the top of the lid. I used a solid navy cardstock on the bottom of the box and the inside of the lid.
I used Scraperfect Best Glue Ever, to adhere all paper to the box.
Using the blue glitter chipboard, I pre-cut large snowflakes to add to the top of the lid, and to two sides of the box.
I used solid white cardstock to cut the same size as the blue glitter chipboard, for the remaining two sides.
For final touches to the exterior of the box, I added lace trim to the lid, and added Diamond Dew Drops in blue to the lace, and the clearer blue to the glittered chipboard snowflakes, and Dew Drop Mini's to the smaller Winter Snowflakes Glitter Chipboard.
I finished the inside of the box with gingham print fabric, and white lace trim.
And although the box can be used to hold holiday cards, it would be just as pretty to leave out through the winter, for extra storage.
Hope you enjoy this project.

& exclusive embellishments.
Crafty Blessings!

Layered Fantasy Card

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos. Today's post is a Christmas card I designed for a Professor friend.
He loves all things literary and is invited various places to give talks on his favorite authors.
A dragon with a horde of books seems to fit him exactly!
~ Christmas Joy ~
This card is constructed with layer upon layer of stamping, embossing, rub-ons, and cardstock. 
 To begin with I cut the Red Glitter Paisley Cardstock to a little less than 5x7.
I stamped the dragon in black pigment ink, dusted it with sparkling black powder, and heat embossed it.
This process curled the paper heavily but I knew more embossing was on the way so I didn't let it bother me.
The only book stamp I have is a stack of three books so I dipped it in pigment ink and stamped and gold embossed
repeatedly on the card. I tried to stack the books up, but the process was a bit haphazard.
The edges of the red paper were rather ink smeared by the time I was finished with the book stamp.
I trimmed an 1/8 inch off the sides and a 1/4 inch off the bottom.
This gave the impression of even more books, just out of sight.
I layered the dragon on top of the Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock and the Snow Covered Trees Cardstock
so that each layer had an 1/8 inch rim showing and the card fit a 5x7 card blank and envelope. 
With as much embossing as I had done the red cardstock was rather warped.
I reheated it from the other side to smooth it out, then stitched all the layers together.
The stitching gives the red cardstock a visual frame. It also provides a secure hold for all those layers.
To add the Christmas flavor to the card I used the Christmas Rub-On sheet. I cut the holly garland
so that I could add it to the top of the card in a line rather than the corner shape offered.
I inked the edge of the card to give it just a tad bit more definition.
My final step for this card was a sentiment, also from the Christmas Rub-On Sheet.
I added it to a strip of the Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock.
I used a corner punch on the end and inked the edges, then adhered it to the card front.
As with any handmade card the best part is the inside inscription.
I hope for many years of friendship with my literary friend
and many more handmade cards sent off to Mexico!

Scrap On!

Angels on High

Hello and happy December! This is Clickersister and today I'm bringing you a Z-Fold Christmas card! I've wanted to do a folded card for a while now, and this was the perfect time!

Robin's Nest supplies used:

Other supplies used:
8 1/2 x 11 Ivory Cardstock
Acrylic stamps, inks, and embossing powder
Your choice of cutting dies for shape and shadow background (I used Spellbinders)

Now for the instructions on how to make your own:

Cut the piece of cardstock in half lengthwise, so that your card base is 4 1/4 x 11.

Next, score it at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2. Fold as follows.

Cut your Winter Retreat paper to just fit the left and right side panels as shown.

This is what your Z-Fold card should look like now.

Stamp and die cut your desired images for the front and inside of the card. I used the Hunter Green Glitter cardstock as the shadow base for my focal piece. I centered the front piece on, then held the bottom piece directly under it so that it lined up perfectly when the card was closed, then 
adhered in place.

I added a Winter Snowflakes Chipboard to the front and back panel to add some dimension (and you can't go wrong with more glitter!)

Thanks for stopping by today! Stop on over to The Robin's Nest and pick up your supplies for Christmas cards this year!
