Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a Merry Christmas with your family and friends.
Good Sunday morning. I have a white on white poinsettias and holly card to share with you today using the Rubbernecker Poinsettias #2, Holly and Borders #3. There is something so interesting to me about all white images on a project. The flowers and holly on this card take on the appearance of bisque. As much as I love making an all white card it is always hard to get good pictures. I like using white backgrounds for my photos but this time I used a pale pink paper in the background in hopes that the card would show up better.
- Cut the poinsettia and tiny flowers using white cardstock.
- Lay the flower sections face down on the molding pad and push down and roll each petal using the large round stylus.
- Lay the flower sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center using a smaller tipped stylus to push all the petals up.
- Attach the sections together using glossy accents offsetting each layer to form a natural looking flower.
- Form the tiny flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
- Attach the tiny flowers in the poinsettia center using glossy accents.
- Cut sections of holly using white cardstock.
- Gently form and shape the holly leaves with your fingers to add dimension.
The Poinsettia and Holly Arrangement
- Cut the decorative border layer using white cardstock and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
- Attach the poinsettia to the card base using glossy accents.
- Tuck the holly sections under the poinsettia leaves and attach using glossy accents.
This white on white poinsettias and holly card will be the last Christmas project I make this year. I always feel a little sad when we come to the close of the card making holiday season but it’s always fun to look forward to making pretty spring projects. Thank so much for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with you family and friends.
Have I told you how much I love making the red Christmas truck and trees projects? I’ve been getting ready for company and haven’t had much time to play with my dies so I thought I would pop in and share my favorite truck die ever. Rubbernecker certainly hit it out of the park with this one. It reminds me of the little truck in the Loads of Love set by Stampin’ Up! that was so popular years ago. The parts and pieces come together so easily to create a wonderful dimensional truck.
- Cut the Truck out using red cardstock.
- Cut the wheels, truck rails and bumpers using black cardstock.
- Assemble the wheel and hubcaps using glossy accents and attach them to the truck base using glossy accents.
- Use a mini applicator to apply light touches of Fired Brick ink to the top portion of the fender section and around the door to add a touch of shading.
- Apply rolled glue dots to several spots on the back of the fender and attach it to the truck base.
- Attach the bumpers, headlights and truck rails to the truck using glossy accent
- Attach the typed Truck Sales sign to the door using glossy accents.
- Tuck several of the small trees to the back of the truck and attach using glue dots.
- Attach the truck to the card base using mounting tape.

I had so much fun making these red Christmas truck and trees cards. I know I will have fun creating the truck and placing in different seasonal scenes. I hope you are enjoying your holiday preparations. I’m sure excited about having my nephew and his wife here for Christmas.
I have such a cute Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread card to share with you today. I used 5178D Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread and I paired these cuties using the Nested Rectangle Scallop w/ Holes and Rectangle Combo. There are several accessories in the set but I couldn’t resist adding a little gingham skirt on the Mrs. and pants for the Mr. I thought they popped perfectly against the green gingham background.
Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread
- Cut the gingerbread people using Kraft cardstock.
- Apply Antique Linen ink to the images using the ink pad direct to paper technique.
- Cut the accessory pieces in red, white, black and green.
- Attach the accessory pieces to the images using glossy accents.
- Cut a portion of the gingerbread image using red cardstock, trim off the waist and legs to create the pants and attach to the body using glossy accents. Attach a thin gingham ribbon to the waist using double stick tape.
- Attach a strip of double stick tape to the waist area of the girl image and begin attaching and ruffling the gingham ribbon all the way across to create the skirt.
- Cut a thin strip of white cardstock and attach it to the waist of the skirt with double stick tape.
- Add holly leaves and berries to both images to finish.
Complete the Card
- Cut the scalloped layer using green checked paper.
- Cut the white frame section and attach it to the checked layer using double stick tape.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the checked layer and attach it to the card base.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the gingerbread people and attach them to the card base.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my cute Mr. and Mrs. Gingerbread couple. I think they are precious. Thanks for coming by and I hope you are having fun preparing for the holiday.

Good Sunday morning. My project today is a gingerbread house scene card made using brand new dies just released by Rubbernecker Stamps. I used the new Gingerbread House Set, Nested Deckle Rectangle and Globe Tree. The gingerbread set has lots of fun parts and pieces to dress up the house for Christmas but it can also be dressed down to be used as a house for any season. I think the deckle layer background is the perfect to highlight the house and trees.
The Gingerbread House
- Cut the house, chimney and front door using Kraft cardstock.
- Cut the roof sections, windows, chimney snow topper and door using white cardstock.
- Cut the gumdrops using red, green, yellow and purple cardstock.
- Cut the shutters using red cardstock and the wreaths using green cardstock.
- Attach the gumdrops to the roof base and attach the roof sections to the roof of the house using glossy accents.
- Apply glossy accents to the back of the window and door sections and attach to the house.
- Attach the shutters and wreath sections to the house using glossy accents.
- Attach gumdrops to the bottom of the house using glossy accents.
- Attach the chimney to the house using glossy accents
The Deckle Layer and Trees
- Cut the deckle layer and attach it to the red card base using mounting tape.
- Cut a second deckle layer and cut it a second time across the lower edge to create the snow layer.
- Attach the snow layer to the deckle base using strips of mounting tape.
- Cut three trees and cut the ornaments using the same colored cardstock used for the gumdrops.
- Attach the tallest tree to the card base using rolled glue dots and the second tallest tree using mounting tape.
- Attach the house in behind the snow layer using pieces of mounting tape.
- Cut the third tree off to shorten and attach the ornaments and star using glossy accents.
- Attach the decorated tree to the card base using mounting tape.
- Finish by applying Spectrum Noir clear overlay sparkle to the gumdrops and ornaments.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my gingerbread house scene card. I had a bit of trouble getting good pictures that showed up all the details against the darker color of the house. The card is so much cuter than the pictures show. Be sure and check out the other new dies just released by Rubbernecker. Have a great day and thanks so much for coming by.
