Real Tree Birthday

I have been pretty lucky this past year to acquire a great selection of paper pads that make it easy to put together quick and easy cards. I will admit that it should be easy but I always futz and it takes me longer to put it all together ;).

With this card, I used an easy design and pieces together two different patterns and matted them with black cardstock. I added a sentiment that is embossed in white and popped up with foam tape. I then finished with Nuvo drops.


Supplies: White and black cardstock, Designer Paper - Uniformed, Poppy Stamps-No truffle at all, Nuvo Drops.

Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #269

We have a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge for you today. Debbie is our hostess and her challenge is to Create a Christmas card with tree of the inspiration photo colours.




I used blues and red on my card. I used layers of blue and red cardstock to matte my designer paper.  I heat embossed my sentiment with a blue glittery embossing powder. The sparkle played tricks on the camera, the sentiment is actually not missing parts of the letters.

I backed the sentiment with some foam tape and finished the card with a large snowflake brad.


Supplies: Red and blue cardstock, Designer Paper - Echo Park, Penny Black - Yuletide Wishes, brad.


Be sure to stop by the Merry Monday blog to take a look at all the cards created by the design team. Play along with another fabulous challenge.

Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #267

We have a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge for you this morning. Colleen is our hostess and her challenge is to Create a Christmas card in green, blue, white/silver/vellum.


The first thing I did was look through my stash of papers for some blue and green patterns. I like the delicate little ornaments on the page I used.

I then created the large flag out of vellum and heat embossed the sentiment in silver. I found that with the pattern in behind the works did not show up very well so I put in a flag of white in behind. I used some eyelets for the ribbon.

I added some rustic silver edges to a layer of white cardstock then finished with some dots.


Supplies: White cardstock, Designer Paper -Carta Bella , Penny Black- Yuletide Wishes, ribbon, dots.

Simple Sweet Christmas Inspiration Hop

http://alwaysplayingwithpaper.blogspot.ca/
Good Morning and welcome. Lesley has put together fun and inspirational blog hop for last-minute simple yet sweet Christmas cards or tags. 


You are here :)

Rachel Bergfeld


My card is simple and relatively quick to reproduce. 


Card Recipe - I formed a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card from cardstock. I used Simon Says Stitched rectangles to create a layer of brown cardstock and the second layer of white cardstock. I used an embossing folder to add snowy texture to the white cardstock layer.

I then die cut the trees and added some white pigment ink and sprinkled with some snowy glitter. I heat embossed the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape.

I finished the card with a small red cardinal. The die cuts make this a quick and simple card that is easy to put together multiple cards at once.

Supplies: White and brown cardstock, Simon Says - Stitched rectangles, Penny Black – In the Winter, Impression Obsession – Cardinal, Hero Arts – Jolly Holiday Wishes, embossing folder and Stampendous – Crystal Snow.

If you just happened to stumble across my blog and this post be sure to head over to Lesley's blog and start at the beginning to hop along to a long list of wonderful inspiration created for the Simply Sweet Christmas Inspiration Hop.

Happy hopping ;),

Here's to you

A quick post this morning. I needed a card for a co-worker who is moving on to bigger better things.

I used stitched rectangles to create the layers using a matt of brown and black cardstock. I heat embossed the mug twice. I added perfect puff for the foam and glossy accents for a sheen to the mug. I used two mugs and put foam tape between the layers.


Supplies: White, brown and black cardstock, Designer Paper - SEI, Two Paper Divas - Here's to you, white Perfect Puff.
