Assembly line Christmas Cards with digital images

Put together Christmas cards quickly.
I started with my digital images from Altered Pages. After printing and trimming them, I made mats to fit and card bases. Stacked them up-ready to produce!!
I got our the Christmas embellishments I might want to use.
 Have two favorite background stamps to jazz the plain cardstock up.  Then I got started!
 Below are just two examples of the beautiful cards that came out of my day of card making. There's no way I could post them all!
 These two images came from the collage sheet "Blue Christmas" I just love the vintage feel of them.

Entering Simon Says Christmas/Holiday Challenge.

I hope this will help you during this busy time to be able to get some cards done without stressing too bad!!  People secretly love receiving a handmade card.  I love having the time this year to do them.

Take the time to share Christ in the simple things you do for people this Christmas season.
God was thinking of us when he sent his one and only child to be born in this sinful world and then be crucified for OUR SINS. If you've never accepted Christ as your Savior-do it today!!  Celebrate his birth in true Child of God fashion this year!

Love in Christ,

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
