Golden Christmas cards ♥


 Happy Friday!
Oh my, what a week this has been -
and our weekend is jam packed full, too!
 
The Just For Fun Design Team has some exciting news!
We have a cross promotion this month with Altered Pages -
a wonderful company filled with
arts and craft supplies for all your card making needs.
They sent us, the DT, a wonderful package filled with all sorts of goodies
to create with - from tags to gorgeous collage pages, ink,
borders, mat stack pages and more.
Thank you, Altered Pages!
 
I have to cards to share today as it's my turn on the JFF Inspiration blog
First up, I've created a golden holiday card with shimmery cardstock,
an image from the Altered Pages' Cardstock Pages ~ Mid Century Cmas.
Now, I'm going to show it to you - twice!
How on earth do you photograph Gold Shimmery cardstock!!??

 
The gold was very hard to photograph and I wanted to show off the colors
and unique, fun image from Altered Pages so here is the first look:
 
Then again with the gold highlighted :)
 
 
Next up, this is my hybrid card using both the White Christmas stamp from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps and supplies from Altered Pages ~ the burlap, Bazzill half edge strips, white , the gorgeous vintage book pages in which I've made this scalloped flower and the beautiful mat stack background paper.
 

 For this second card, I've embossed the entire stamp in gold embossing powder to highlight the stamp and added accent papers/pieces around.
 
Here is a close up of the beautiful White Christmas image,
which is available in the store and in many options:  Wood, UM, or as a mounted stamp.
 
 
And a flower made with the vintage pages into a scalloped flower ♥

 
Thanks for stopping by to peek at my golden holiday cards!
I wish you a most wonderful weekend ♥
 
 
You can check out Just for Fun Rubber Stamps here -
and if you are lucky enough to be in Florida, there is a free trunk
show going on this weekend!  Woohoo!
And, of course, stop in to Altered Pages and see all the crafting goodies
they have to offer!  It's fabulous!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

Cornish Heritage Farms - Holiday cards w/out Red + Green!

 
 
Hi friends!
I am channeling my inner Elvis with this card - LOL!
��  I'll have a Blue Christmas without you ... ��
 
 
We have a new challenge at Cornish Heritage Farms
brought to us by Amber:
Create a non-traditional holiday card w/out red or green.
I love non-traditional cards ~ 
They are fun, out of the box, and exciting to create :)
 
 
 I went with blues and grey and white
with this snowman inspired shaker card.
I used the sweet digi skiing snowman
and last year's dsp splurge (finally opened - this year!)

CHF-Challenge-Winner_thumb[1]
 
 
Want to play along????
 
If you would like to play along with us of course we would love to have you!
To play create a card using CHF images. You can use either CHF digi or rubber stamps to create a card or project.... anything you like as long as the stamps are Cornish Heritage Farms. (Yes, they can be older stamps.) 
 
Once you've created your card/project, link it up here on the challenge blog.
 
If you upload your card/project to SCS don't forget to include the keyword CHF67.  We can't wait to see what you create!
