Faux Metal Tags

Here is another item for the Hanukkah Craft Fair. This Hanukkah Card uses the menorah and Star or David from the Holiday Blitz set. I was really happy when this set came out, to see two Jewish symbols included in a set that covers so many holidays. This card uses a technique called  “Faux Metal.”  By embossing silver on the brushed silver paper, it makes it look like a metal tag. It is quick and easy and doesn’t add extra weight for mailing! (There are two different faux metal techniques. This is the easier of the two.) Again, I used a Stampin’ Write marker and the Stamp-a-ma-jig to put “Happy Hanukkah” on the bottom.

Paper: Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue
Ink: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, VersaMark

I liked the layout so much that I created a non-Jewish version as well! I used the snowflake from the Season of Friendship set, but Holiday Blitz has a snowflake as well.

Hanukkah Gift Tags

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I need to buckle down and get ready for the National Council of Jewish Women’s Hanukkah Craft Fair in New Bedford. I’ll be there selling a wide variety of cards and other hand-made paper crafts. The first thing I did was make a bunch of Hanukkah gift tags.  I used the same layout as Lynn Put’s Christmas tags. In order to use just the saying “Happy Hanukkah” out of the Shalom Sayings set, I used a Stampin’ Write marker to color only the words in, and then my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig for perfect placement. I love my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig!

Dove Card for Mom

My mom custom designs Judaic Needlepoint, and her logo has always been a dove. Not all doves look the same though, and I had never seen the right dove for her.  Imagine my excitement when I saw the dove stamp in the To You & Yours set! It was just perfect! This is a card that I made for my mom. She now has a bunch on hand (with different sentiments on them) to send out whenever she would like.

Thankful for Cards

Happy Thanksgiving! As a gift to our wonderful family friends who we are not only spending the holiday with, but who are also letting the dog and hamster stay with them, I put together a fun packet of cards. I made an outside folder to hold them. (Folder design by Standi Kern. You can download the template here.)

I made eight cards, one with each of the stamps in the Pun Fun stamp set, and used the same card layout for all them, which I had used on the get well card for my father-in-law as well.

It’s that time of the week again, for Kristina Werner’s color inspiration. It was the perfect thing to do while I was waiting to see what is going to be on sale for Stampin’ Up’s Holiday Extravaganza. Here are this week’s colors:

112508-color1

I don’t have any Sahara Sand (I know, it’s a shocker!), so I substituted a metallic, as suggested. I used gold. Here is what I came up with. It could be a Valentine or an Anniversary card.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, So Swirly Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red
Ink: Riding Hood Red, VersaMark
Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder, Top Note Bigz Die, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon

I made the gold edge around the die cut by coloring it with my VersaMarker pen, and then embossing it.

Hope you like it!
