Holiday Snowflakes

Hi everyone,

Today I have 2 cards to share that I created using both the positive and negative from a large snowflake die.

I started by cutting a large panel with a stitched rectangle die and then cut a snowflake from the white piece. I then moved onto die cutting the snowflake from a few different colours of cardstock. I carefully taped all the snowflake pieces together on the back side and then laid them into the snowflake cutout background.

I added foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered it to the card base which was lined with a piece of diagonal stripe patterned paper.




For my second card I die cut the snowflake from a white panel. The background to my snowflake was created by blending 3 different colours of distress oxide inks. I added some white splatters to the panel and adhered it to my card base. I applied foam tape pieces around the edges of the snowflake and turned it into a shaker card using Snow Flurries mix from Taylored Expressions.

Both sentiments are from MFT stamps.



Well that's it for both cards and thanks so much for stopping by.

Supplies:

Impression Obsession Snowflake die - DIE093-X
Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set
Distress Oxide inks - Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Broken China

From our home to yours

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card to share using Altenew's Leaves & Berries stencil.



I applied the stencil to my card and started to blend the berries and leaves with Distress Oxide inks masking off the berries and then the leaves. I laid the stencil back down and added some drops of white paint. I also added some little gold dots on the white background part to add a little extra interest.

I die cut a red scalloped frame and added to the card with some foam tape. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with white powder.

Well that's it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Supplies:

Altenew Leaves & Berries stencil
MFT Die-namics Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Frame die set
Distress Oxide inks

Happy Holidays

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card to share using a new stencil from Gina K that I had recently purchased.




I die cut a red cardstock panel using a stitched rectangle die. I then applied white Gina K. Glitz glitter gel. I just love this gel.

I then layered the panel onto a piece of white cardtock and then a piece of black cardstock.

The sentiment is from MFT stamps which was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.
The whole thing was popped up with some foam tape onto a white card.

Such an easy, quick and festive card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

The Magic of Christmas


Hi everyone,

Today I have a card to share with a nice wintery, snowy night background. Simon Says Stamp also has their current challenge theme as Starry, Starry Night so I thought I would enter that here



I started with a piece of navy cardstock that was die cut using a stitched rectangle die. I then placed a couple of different stencils that I have for a very long time (one is brass and the other stainless) and applied some white ink. Once I was happy with the background I added a lot of white paint splatters using Gansai Tambi white paint.

The 2 reindeers and horns were die cut with a piece of white cardstock a couple of times and adhered together.
The sentiment is from MFT stamps. I added a little red pom pom to Rudolph's nose and some sparkle embellishment from Queen & Co.

Well that's it for this card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Supplies:

Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set
MFT stamps Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set
MFT Die-namics Deer Love die set
American Traditional Large Snowflakes stainless stencil

Sending Holiday Cheer

Hi everyone,

I have a card to share today that I created using the Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia Parade die set.

I first started by creating the base of my card by embossing the background with the Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop die.

I used the same die to also cut a small panel to mount my flowers on.

I ran the Poinsettia die through my die cutting machine a couple of times so that I would have enough pieces to create my flowers and leaves.

I added some colour to the flowers and leaves by blending some Distress Oxide inks over the pieces.

The sentiment was stamped onto black cardstock and heat set with white embossing powder.

I die cut a panel of red cardstock, added my small quilted panel and arranged my flowers tucking i. The leaves here and there. I added a small pearl to the centre of each flower.



Well that’s it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Supplies:

Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia Parade die set
Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop die
MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set
Distress oxide inks - Candied Apple, Twisted Citron
