Scrappin’ with Deck the Halls Designer Paper


When I opened my first pack of Deck the Halls, I knew it was time to scrapbook.  These pages are just so beautiful!  I cut out part of this sheet to use on the 2 cards below, then used the rest of the sheet for this page.  But it needed some embellishing so I added the crochet ribbon, then a strip of Vanilla run through the Scallop Trim Border punch.  Then I added some of our new pearls in the white poinsettias—here’s a close up: IMG_2937

But it still needed something so I took a piece of Crumb Cake, ran it through the Big Shot with the Scallop trim border punch, then sponged it with Early Espresso Ink, but that still needed something so I got out my Shimmer Paint—champagne—and sponged it over the espresso ink and got this amazing copper look!  It was like magic.

Here’s that look up close:







And here are the 2 cards that I made with the cut out piece—I think I already posted them but I want you to see where they came from:

Christmas Collage and Welcome Christmas

I spent the evening (while Joel was away at band practice—yes he plays base in a little local Bluegrass Band) stamping and getting ready for Stamp Fest tomorrow.

I have to share some of the creations.  Please note that I’ve cased many from other stampers and while I do not have their names cause I saved these ideas in my computer, I want to say that I’m not this creative but I feel creative even if I stamp it myself!

changed Wow, do I love this stamp!  There is just so much you can do with it  The bottom card is just the bottom half of the stamp.

Christmas Collage  $17.95   121279  and I clear mounted mine.

Oh, and I forgot the Glass Glitter—champagne from the mini applied with Tombow multipurpose glue to get more glitter on.

You’ll see one of these at next month’s card class-  Click here to find an October one near you.

The bottom one has Crystal Effects on the berries.


This one done with Candy Cane Christmas Designer Paper,

Welcome Christmas stamps,

Flurry embossing folder.

Oh, and I sponged the ribbon with River Rock to match.




Welcome Christmas

Peace on Earth is from

Four the Holidays #116921

$13.95 and I embossed that with versamark-cherry cobbler ink-clear embossing powder

Colors are Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler with the new Cobbler Seam Binding!

Very simple--quick and easy!


Thought I’d pull out my ornament punch for this one.  I think this stamp set is so romantic. 

Another Welcome Christmas Design

I cut the background ornament pieces in half so that they would extend beyond the design pieces.

I’m hooked on this crocheted ribbon, I can tell you that.  And to sponge it to match your color theme makes it even more exciting.
