Christmas Holiday Blog Hop



Welcome!  Thank you for joining me today from Tami White's blog!
I don’t know about you, but Christmas is my favorite time of year to make crafts!! I love traditional holiday decorating – and my home is all ready all decorated – I know it is only the day after Thanksgiving but my husband loves this time of year as much as I do!!

For today’s card I wanted to share the card that I thought of the minute I first saw the Holiday Catalog! The snowy woods, the picket fence and the rustic pick up truck just reminds me of Christmas used to be (at least in many parts of the country!) I knew I wanted to go all out and really showcase all of the elements so I made a three step card.  This step card was inspired by Alex Bieicher on Pinterest.


Bienvenidos - gracias para pasar aqui del blog de Tami White! No sé ustedes, pero la Navidad es mi época favorita del año para hacer artesanías! Me encanta la decoración tradicional de vacaciones – y mi casa está todo listo todo decorado – sé que es sólo el día después de acción de gracias, pero mi marido ama esta época del año tanto como yo!
Para la tarjeta de hoy quería compartir la tarjeta que pensé en el momento en que vi por primera vez el catálogo de vacaciones! Los bosques nevados, la valla de piquete y el camión de recogida rústico sólo me recuerda a la Navidad solía ser (al menos en muchas partes del país!) Yo sabía que quería ir todo y realmente Mostrar todos los elementos, así que hice una tarjeta de tres pasos.  Esta carta de paso fue inspirada por Alex Bieicher en Pinterest.

First here are the dimensions – its easy to cut with the Stampin Up’s Stampin Trimmer.

Next after the card is folded, I used the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder run through on Thick Whisper White ( I did it twice but you only need ¼ sheet of paper).  I used the Early Espresso Watercolor pencils to draw in all the dark lines of the birch tree and then used the Froste White Shimmer paint over the branches – what a difference right?  Cut them out with your paper snips and set aside. The nice thing about the watercolor pencils is that they get blended a bit with the Shimmer paint and make it look super realistic.

A continuación, después de que la tarjeta se pliega, he utilizado la impresión de texturas de las impresiones de la carpeta del bosque en el susurro de espesor blanco (lo hice dos veces, pero sólo necesita ¼ hoja de papel).  Utilicé los primeros lápices de acuarela de espresso para dibujar en todas las líneas oscuras del árbol de abedul y luego utiliza la escarcha blanca brillo pintura sobre las ramas-¿Qué diferencia de derecho?  Cortar con sus tijeras de papel y reservar. Lo bueno de los lápices de acuarela es que se mezclan un poco con la pintura brillante y hacer que se vea súper realista.





On a second ¼ sheet of Thick Whisper White – you emboss again but this time before you run it though, you add Pool Party (lighter color first) and Night of Navy ink to the inside of the embossing folder.  Try to get even coverage – but not to worry – you can go back in after with sponge daubers to dark some areas.  Use the flat side and gently swipe.  I did go through and clean the grooves a bit with another q-tip to keep the trunks as white as possible.  Cut to 3.5” wide. After that dries add the watercolor pencil and Frost Shimmer White to the trunks.  I did the same color technique with either side of the base.

En una segunda hoja de ¼ de grueso susurro blanco – que realzar de nuevo, pero esta vez antes de ejecutarlo, sin embargo, añadir fiesta de la piscina (color más claro primero) y la noche de la tinta de la marina en el interior de la carpeta de grabación en relieve.  Trate de obtener una cobertura uniforme – pero no se preocupe – puede volver después con las avispas de esponja a oscuras algunas áreas.  Use el lado plano y deslice suavemente.  Me fui a través y limpiar las ranuras un poco con otro q-Tip para mantener los troncos tan blanco como sea posible.  Corte a 3,5 "de ancho. Después de que se seque añadir el lápiz de acuarela y escarcha brillo blanco a los troncos.  Hice la misma técnica de color con cada lado de la base.






Using the Farmhouse bundle – cut the fence from the Wood Textures Designer Series paper, stamp and cut the greeting on the same paper on the Big Shot. An Important Tip:  Make sure you run the fence die Perpendicular to the turning handle (in the direction of the turn) – otherwise it doesn’t cut well.  Stamp and cut the Truck, Wreath and Poppy Parade bows.  I used the Stampin’ Blends marker to create the “paper” for the bows and to color the truck and wheels.  I used Watercolor pencils for the tree and wreath.

Finally I used the stamp in the Farmhouse Bundle with the Frost White Shimmer paint to create snow falling and added more Frosted Shimmer Paint, Tombow glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the first two folds which had sseveral snow "mounds" from the same bundle

Usando el Farmhouse bundle – cortar la valla de las Wood Textures Designer Series paper, sello y cortar el saludo en el mismo papel en el gran tiro. Un Consejo importante: Asegúrese de que el tope-guía está perpendicular al mango de giro (en la dirección del giro), de lo contrario no se corta bien.  Estampar y cortar el camión, la guirnalda y los lasos de Poppy Parade.  Utilicé el marcador de Stampin Blends para crear el "papel" para los lasos y para colorear el camión y las ruedas.  Usé lápices de acuarela para el árbol y la guirnalda.


Finalmente utilicé el sello en el paquete del Cortijo con la pintura blanca del brillo de la helada para crear la nieve que caía y mas pintura, tombow y Dazzling Diamonds glitter en las montanas de nieve creado con el mismo bulto.
