Day Seven with Canvas Corp Brands Merry Christmas

Image
Good morning.
I have enjoyed being with you the past seven days. I hope you have enjoyed my cards made with Canvas Corp Brands wonderful papers.
 I made a small Christmas card using Canvas Corp Brands paper.


I covered the card stock with red foil.
I added some Christmas ribbon from my Mothers stash and some lace trim I had in my stash.
The I attached a cut piece of egg carton to lift up the paper from 7 Gypsies I added.

 I then cut a sentiment from the 12x12 paper from canvas Corp Brands and added egg carton to the back to lift it up.
 Then I added some yo yo's from my Mom's treasures and buttons.
Easy card.
Thanks for stopping in.
Hugs

Day Six. Christmas with Canvas Corp Brands

Image
Welcome to Day Six with Christmas with Canvas Corp Brands.

The paper I have chosen today is from Canvas Corp Brands 7 Gypsies line.(My favorite line ssshhh).
I cut the paper where "Christmas Carol" would show through.
I covered the back and top and the side with a coffee stained doily.
I added some starched ribbon where I wanted to add gesso to give it a little more strength and support.

 Then I added some Fun Stampers Journey Glitter Dust.(That product is fabulous).


 I added some lace from Canvas Corp Brands.Then more gesso and Glitter Dust.The ornament die was from my Mothers stash so I do not know who made it or from whence it came.
I just kept layering with gesso Glitter Dust,lace and added the die cut ornaments. The flowers I added was from Michaels Recollections.


I love this stamp from Tim Holts. It is a Christmas ticket stamp. I thought a couple of tickets would be nice also.


 I added some ephemera from the Christmas pack...and the "dream' came from  more beautiful pa…

Day Five with Canvas Corp Brands Christmas card Collection "Santa's On his Way"

Image
Good Monday morning here from West Texas. I heard a whisper that Santa was on his way!

This is a very simple card to make.
I am using the beautiful Christmas paper from 7Gypsies
 I covered the from of the card stock card with the back of the beautiful paper.
I took two small coffee stained papers and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo. and attached them to the front of the card on top of the ribbon I attached on the right side(opening side) of the card.
I then attached another cut piece of ribbon to the left side . this will give my photo piece I am placing in the center perfect gold lifted trim borders.
I am going to use the adorable Santa with his suitcase from the center of the 7Gypsies paper.
I am going to wrap Mr. Claus in this coffee stained doily and on the left side you will have to double fold it back and use tape.
I then added my lovely Glimmer Mist from Canvas Corp Brands.
I sprayed on my Kraft sheet and used a thin lined brush to detail the edges.
as you can see I used tap…

Christmas Secrets with Canvas Corp Brand a card for Altered Tattered and Timeworn

Image
Welcome to Day Four with Canvas Corp Brands Christmas cards.
I am also sharing this project with a member of Altered Tattered and Timeworn @ yahoo groups.
This paper is from Canvas Corp Brands 7Gypsies Christmas selection.

 Take a card from your card stock and cover the front with the 7Gypsies paper.Pick what you desire to be seen on the front as a background. You will then cut two triangles one a bit smaller than the other. When you glue or tape them on with glue dots or tape leave the middle open to hold a tag. You must start with the smaller on the right and then attach the larger on the left bottom. simple simon. Cut a small tag and attach paper..then embellish your card.

 I used a corner punch at the top buttons and bling.
It is windy and cold today ..we still have some leaves but not for long with that wind.

My little Salty Girls first fall.
I have spoiled this baby...she thinks she is a swan.
Have a wonderful day. Hugs Susan S

The paper I used this time is a cut from some beautiful 7Gypsies paper.

I also used some coffee stained music paper my friend gave me. Some which she had picked up from a garage sale .(giggle)
I cut a smaller square of the 7 Gypsies paper leaving a open edge as a pocket.
I used "stickles" by Tim Holtz on the borders of the edge and the open edge..and decorated with beautiful Washi tape from Canvas Corp Brands (which is on sale right now). 

I used the same paper on a cut down size tag some ribbon ...more washi tape and a bell.This tag sits at a angle in the pocket.The beautiful ribbon was from my Mothers stash.She made gorgeous wreaths.

"Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow"
I am using a beautiful Christmas paper from Canvas Corp Brands.


 Beautiful paper isn't it.
I purchased some paper dollies from a local store and coffee stained them. I use hot coffee and a fan brush.

I use Aleen's clear gel glue and Elmers for my projects.
fold and attach to the side where the fold is front and back by gluing.Do not glue heavy the lines will show through.



The little Santa is from Canvas Corp Brands 7Gypsies little tags.
The pokka dots are from a washi tape from Canvas Corp Brands.
I coffee stained some stationary and folded it into a little fold out book and attached the Santa tag gluing the back to the card.
Yes I use clothes pins to help hold in place while glue dries..my advise on that is be careful often it sticks through.
This little tag is from Tsunami Rose a Christmas kit, from her Etsy store. 

The circular piece I am using to close the book is also from Tsunami Rose.
I used some plastic snow flakes given to me out of…
