Project Life Monday | December Filler Cards..

Hello Sassy Friends! Welcome to the final step by step class for November. Today we are going to create our own Fringed Christmas Tree embellishment to fit perfectly into a 3”x4” pocket! I have used the super cute October Afternoon | Under the Tree collection, along with Kelly Purkey clear stamps and Hero Arts Ombre ink. Let’s get started!


step 1: Trim a 3”x4” piece of smooth white cardstock and stamp a brick wall pattern using the Kelly Purkey | Deck the Halls clear stamps and Hero Arts ombre ink. See instructions here.


step 2: Using the October Afternoon | Under the Tree collection, select 4 -5 different patterned papers. Keep in mind you can use the reverse side too.

 
step 3: Trim a piece of cardstock into a rectangle 2”x3.5”. Mark the middle on one of the short ends and trim the sides to create a tall triangle.


step 4: Layer the individual patterned paper strips one at a time, across the cardstock triangle. Trim the edges of the paper strip to match the cardstock shape.




step 5: Using a good pair of scissors, snip the lower edge of the paper strip multiple times to create a fringe. Take care not to cut across the entire length of the paper strip.



step 6: As each paper strip is completed, adhere them to the cardstock. Brush the fringe gently to create dimension and interest. Cover the entire cardstock triangle with paper fringe strips.




step 7: Adhere the completed triangle to the 3”x4” cardstock background that was prepared in step 1.


 
step 8: For added interest, flick the completed card with black paint.

Sweets for my sweet

Hello Sassy Friends and happy weekend to you!

There are only a few more days of school left and my mind is firmly on teacher's gifts. I'm thinking something yummy and sweet might do the trick this year. Easy is also an added bonus, and if you have a Silhouette Cameo, or a steady hand, you can whip these little gift boxes up in no time at all!


I've loved creating with Pink Paislee's Yuletide all month. It's lent itself beautifully to mixed media, OTP and simple and elegant. So versatile. This box was created with a sheet of white cardstock and some leftover 'Wrapping Paper'. The box was cut by hand but you could also use a cute metal die.


The box opens to reveal a luscious red velvet cupcake. (Here's hoping it will withstand the December heat!) I've used the acrylic shapes that come in the Yuletide Ephemera pack as cute cake toppers.

The box is a 3D cut file by Lori Whitlock, available in the Silhouette Store.

My little star gift box is also a cut file (Amanda Walker) which you can find in the Silhouette online store. I've used a sheet of 'Frosty' as well as some sequin ribbon, some twine and a cute tag hand cut from a sheet of 'Baked Goods'.

A bit of white thread creates a nice bit of texture.

The star opens to reveal some jolly chocolate Santas, waiting to be gobbled up!


Wishing our overseas friends a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for stopping by today

Christmas Cards With Anita

Hi
Today I'm sharing a few cards created using the Christmas on market street 
by my minds eyeWell not long now till Christmas so I thought I would share 
how easy it is to incorporate vellum on a few cards
To add that touch of loveless 




I layered the red polka dot paper over the my card base after embossing it with a embossing folder
Then I cut the vellum a bit smaller and layered in the center 




Next I popped out 2 of the chipboard stickers 
And added them to my card



I used the same polka dot paper on the card base
Then I cut a strip of another polka dot patterned paper and cut it in a pendent shape



And then some vellum in a pendent shape 
And next adding flowers from the die cut pack and a chipboard bit in the center
And here are some other shots of my cards


And here is a picture of my kit I'll be working with all this month 


so pop on over and check out this wonderful collection in the sassy store

Christmas Wishes Collection by Pinkfresh Studio


Hello Leonie back today on this last Wednesday in November!  
Next week will be December and we'll be right in the thick of the most lovely season of the year.   My last project with the Pinkfresh Studio Christmas Wishes collection is a scrapbook page featuring some photo's from last years' Christmas morning.  I've really enjoyed creating with this range the past month.


I scrapped a sequence of three photo's, trying to capture the excitement of present opening on Christmas morning with my Husband getting in on the Kids fun!!  I backed some of Ephemera frames and die cut cards behind the photo's 




How sweet are these little gift boxes from the ephemera pack? So cute!! I just added some foam tape to the back of one to add some dimension and pop them off the page. 





And a last close up of the water colour effects I added to the background 
with some watercolour paints. 



Thanks so much for stopping by the Sassy Scrapper blog.
Happy Christmas crafting.
