Welcome to Ruthie’s Banner Blog Hop! I know all of you are having a blast and getting inspired this morning. This Hop has so many super talented and creative ladies in it. Thank you to our Hop hostess Ruthie for hosting another fun Hop!

If this is your first time to my blog, I want to say hello and I hope you’ll enjoy your stay. If you have landed here by way of MoMo’s blog you are in the right place. If you get lost along the way or came across this post by chance, please click here to start at the beginning of the Hop.

Ok, let’s get started! I’m very excited to share with you my Christmas 2010 Banner! This is the first banner I have ever made. I really love how this turned out and think it makes a really cute decoration piece. Each banner piece was cut into the shape of a Christmas ornament and hung with gold cord onto gold ribbon. I decided to have each ornament represent a Christmas theme or scene instead of spelling out a word. I thought this was a fun twist on the traditional banner.

Christmas 2010 Banner!

Poinsettia's just say Christmas!

"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night."

All bundled up!

"Now Dash Away! Dash Away! Dash Away All!"

Here's a closer look at each of the ornaments.

Here’s a list of products I used on this project:

The Cricut cartridge Christmas (digital download) was used to cut the Ornament & the House, Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge was used to cut the Christmas tree. Sure-Cuts-A-Lot was used to cut the poinsettia’s and the reindeer.  I decorated the ornaments with, Peppermint forest patterned paper, gold bead trim from Joann’s, gold embossing powder, Distress Inks in Fired Brick & Broken China, pigment ink, Martha Stewart snowflake punches, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Scribbles iridescent gold paint, DecoArt Snow Writer, DecoArt Glamour Dust, gems, flock (it’s on the teddy bear), The Greeting Farm, Inkadinkado and Martha Stewart stamps.

Tonight’s card is another Christmas card. I joined in the challenges over at CardzTv and Drunken Stampers. CardTv asked us make a card with a Christmas tree on it and Drunken Stampers asked for a Christmas card. This is what I came up with.

The swirl stamp is from Autumn Leaves, the tree is a Cuttlebug die and the gems are from Joann’s. I dusted gold perfect pearls over the tree and the edge of the card front. Then I finished the card by tying a bow on the tree trunk.

Thank you for taking the time to come to my blog! Have a wonderful evening! And don’t forget to check out the challenges above!

Love bling on a Christmas Tree!

Embossed swirls and Perfect Pearls!

Tonight’s card is a Christmas card! I joined the fun Christmas in July themed challenges over at Cricut Cardz, The Shabby Tea Room #18, Fussy and Fancy #14 and Simple Doodles #21! I had a great time bringing out some Christmas papers and stamps.

I used my Doodle Charms cart, Inkadinkado and Studio g stamps, red glitter and a white gel pen to make this cute Christmas card. The cards measures 4.25 x 5.5. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Flower Shower Stack.

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my card!

Christmas Puppy Surprise!

Here’s my Frosty card. I used Distress ink in Tea Dye and light blue pigment ink on the card front. I don’t have the Distress Tool yet, so I’ve been making due with other things to do my distressing. But I think it tuned out pretty cool looking. I also distressed the edges of the cardstock with a nail file. The Frosty Stamp is from Inkadinkado. I colored his nose with an orange glitter gel pen and then circle cut the image. I think stickles would look great on the image too. I used pop-dots to adhere Frosty to the card front. The Sentiment is from Walmart clear stamps and the ribbon is from the Target Dollar Bin. After every thing was adhered I sprayed the card front with my homemade Perfect Pearls Mist. It gave the card a gorgeous sparkling sheen. There’s a picture at the end of the video that shows the sheen.

To make Perfect Pearls Mist – I used a mini mister, water and a tiny bit of Perfect Pearls in the color Perfect Pearl. Thanks for watching and Happy Holidays!!!

Frosty!

If your in need of a quick card, here’s 3 that are simple to make.

The Santa card I had seen on a blog and decided to change it just a bit. I added Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel to the belt. Used my Cropadile to punch 3 holes in it. I cut out the belt buckle in gold paper. The Santa is a stamp from Studio g. I colored him with watercolor pencils and matted the image on black cardstock. I just now realize I should of made the white parts of Santa’s outfit and his beard sparkly with iridescent ice. I think that would look really cute.

Yes, more Tree cards. They are just so cute and easy! The Tree cards are cut on the Cricut using Paper Doll Dress Up. I used gems and buttons to decorate them. The star is embossed twice with gold embossing powder. The tree is popped up using pop-dots. The blue cardstock is embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.

Santa Belt Card

Image is colored with watercolor pencils. Stamp, Studio g.

Belt is embossed with clear UTEE.

Since they were so cute and easy, I made two.

2 Little Christmas Trees

Decorating the trees with gems & buttons is not only cute its afforadable too.

Hope you enjoyed these cards. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy Holidays.

This fun little card was made using the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. The background paper is from Joann’s Peppermint Forest stack. The sentiment is from Studio g.

First I cut the sleigh out twice (page 55, Accessories 3). Then I cut the bag out three times. One bag is an inch smaller. (page 53, Accessories 3) On the first sleigh I embossed the runners and the handle. I embossed twice using gold embossing powder. I then used tombow mono adhesive glue to stick the sleigh to the background paper. Then I inked the edges and inside lines of the three bags. I glued two of the bags to the sleigh. The smaller of the two is placed toward the back of the sleigh. Next I cut the runner and the handle off the second sleigh. Inked the edges in red and stamped the sentiment. Then I placed it over the first sleigh adhering it with pop-dots. Lastly I put pop-dots on the third bag and adhered it to the top of the second bag. Letting the ties of the bag hang over the sleigh.

Hope you liked this card. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Jingle All The Way!
