August 19, 2010

I made these cards for the Just Add Ink challenge to use Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake (Kraft) and Real Red. This combo easily lends itself to Christmas projects. But since that was quick to come to mind, I wanted to go farther and do a non-Christmas one, too! This Christmas card uses an embossing folder from the 2010 Holiday Mini, active Sept 1st!

Supplies for Christmas Card:
Stamps: Sparkly & Bright
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, VersaMarker
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Crumb Cake
Tools: Big Shot, Top Note die, Northern Flurry EF, glue stick
Embellishments: Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 1 1/4" Wide Striped Grosgrain Ribbon Chocolate Chip (color retired, ribbon available in other colors)

Supplies for Thank You Card:
Stamps: Punched Posies, Occasional Quotes
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red
Paper: Real Red, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip textured
Tools: Big Shot, Top Note die, 3/4" Circle punch, Word Window punch, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon Chocolate Chip, Sending Love Epoxy Brads in Real Red (from the last Occasions Mini)

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!


  1. LOVE your cards, Ellen! They are beautiful. Great sparkle on the first one, and I love the epoxy brads on the second. Perfect for the Just Add Ink challenge!

  2. These cards are both great, but I must say I am taking a shine to the sparkly Christmas one!

  3. 2 great cards Ellen, love all the bling on the Christmas one and the expoxy brads on the flower card.

  4. These are both brilliant! I love the sparkle! Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink. :-)

  5. These are both gorgous cards Ellen!

  6. Lovely cards Ellen - I think the one with the brads is my fave. They make perfect flower centres.
