The 9 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Terre

Welcome to Quietfire Design's 9 Days of Christmas - Day 6!
 
If you've been following along, you'll know we have a wonderful way to share these new stamps with you during this event.
If you are a subscriber to Scrapbooking.com you will have seen Judi Kauffman's Holiday Headstart article published Sept 1, 2013. In that article each designer created three cards of increasing complexity. We will be continuing that theme for all 9 days!
 
Each designer has created
  1. One "quick and easy" card - in a style you can make multiples of, but nice enough to send out to your friends.  Basically; cardstock, stamp, patterned paper.
  2. One "a little more" card - the same card as the "quick and easy", but adding some embellishment or more complex.  This one would take a bit more time or cost a bit more to make.
  3. One "over the top" card  - Enough said!  This would be an heirloom card, something you'd keep, frame, display every year - perhaps something with a removable ornament. For hand delivery or shipped in a box.

 Here are Terre's creations!  Don't forget to leave a comment at the bottom of this post to be eligible for a prize.

 
 
Hi Terre here with this Quick and Easy Card, I simply used pattern paper from Graphic 45, the Nutcracker Collection die cut/embossed using Spellbinders Detailed Scallop Card Creator die template. Using my Tsukineno Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped my "Christmas Is The Day" sentiment...love it by the way, and there you have it "Quick and Easy". Attach all the layers using Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry, my favorite glue!

 
 
For my "Little More" card I used the same base as the Quick & Simple cards but fussy cut around a ballerina from the pattern paper and added some Want2Scrap Silver Rhinestone Bling just to kick it up a notch.


The last card is the "Over the Top" card, it has all the same pieces as the first two cards but them to kick it up two notches, I stamped the tree stamp and fussy cut around it, painted them with glitter glue for that extra sparkle. I die cut/embossed the new Spellbinders 2013 Snowflake Pendant die template brushed on some glitter glue and layered a couple of them together, added some Want2Scrap Silver Rhinestone Bling to both the inner and outer pieces of my Detailed Scallop Card Creator die cut as well as the snow flakes and there you have it an "Over the Top" card. Thanks for stopping by my blog post today and remember... Don't forget to leave a comment at the bottom of this post to be eligible for a prize. Have a wonderfully crafty day, Terre

  18. I was certain there was a posting error here-- that your "simple" card was really your "complex" card... until I saw samples 2 and 3. Oh, my. The simple really is simple, but looks almost over-the-top due to the gorgeous colors, intricate die-cuts, and Suzanne's wonderful stamp calligraphy. Added to Pinterest immediately!
