Thanks a bunch









Hi everyone,

I have a card to share today for the current Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp where the theme is 'Thanks/Thanksgiving'. Details can be found here.


                                               
I used a new die from a current die set that I had recently purchased from Newton's Nook Designs called Pines & Holly die.


I started my card by diecutting the patterned paper panel using the Wonky Stitched Rectangle die from MFT die-namics.

I then carefully measured where each pine cone should go and proceeded to cut the panel for 5 pine cones. Four with dark brown cardstock and one with gold metallic cardstock.

To create a little added thickness to each of the pine cones I die cut them several times again with white cardstock and adhered several layers together.

The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white vellum and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I wrapped the vellum around each side and adhered it on the back with a little tape.

Each of pine cones were added to the bottom of the card and then I added a few gold sequins for a little more sparkle.

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

Supplies:

Newton's Nook Designs Pines & Holly die set
MFT die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle die set
Lawn Fawn Patterned paper
Penny Black sentiment

Lawn Fawn Winter Bunny

Hi everyone,

I have always loved the cute little Winter Bunny from Lawn Fawn but only recently decided to purchase it.

Here's a card I made using it along with some alcohol ink blending and foil for my background.



I die cut a piece of cardstock using a Hero Arts rounded rectangle die. I then applied Flamingo alcohol ink to the piece and using a straw moved the ink around a bit. Before it was dry I added a piece of Silver Star deco foil rubbing it into the piece in different areas.

I love the effect it gives as the foil has a lot of different colours to it so depending on the light you can see them along with the tiny stars in the foil.

I stamped the cute bunny and coloured him/her with Copic markers. Added some white accents here and there using a white gel pen.

The card was embossed using an embossing folder for some snow.

Foam mounted the alcohol ink piece and the bunny. The sentiment was stamped on black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I added Nuvo shimmer pen all over the sentiment strip to add a little sparkle.

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

Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together - sentiment
Hero Arts Rounded Rectangle Infinity die set
Sizzix/Hero Arts Textured Impression embossing folder set - Dots

Christmas shaker

Hi everyone,

Today I have a shaker card created using the Merry Christmas Circle Frame die from My Favorite Things.




I used a Simon Says Stamp circle die on my card base to cut a window opening for my shaker.

I die cut the Merry Christmas die from a piece of glitter cardstock that I had made using some glitter embossing powder. The circle centre left over from the die cut piece was added behind my window.

The sentiment die was cut again several times from plain white cardstock and the pieces glued together to give some extra thickness to my sentiment.

I added a piece of red patterned paper for my background cut to fit my card base.

Some Neat and Tangled sequins were added to my shaker. I addeda strip of red glitter cardstock and a strip of patterned paper to the left side of the card.

Well that completes my card for today.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Supplies:

MFT die-namics Merry Christmas Circle Frame die
Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles die set
Lawn Fawn patterned paper
Neat and Tangled Classic Christmas sequin mix

Christmas snow

Hi everyone,

Today I have another to share which I am including in the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge #109 where the theme is to 'Let Your Stencils Shine'.

I started by adhering the Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp and applying some glitter snow paste to only the right side of the stencil so that I could add a curved panel to the left side. It is a shame that you can't see the little glitter sparkle in the snow.

I  die cut the Merry sentiment from some red glitter cardstock and stamped the other part of the sentiment and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I added a strip of black and white washi tape to the left side, adhered my patterned piece of cardstock which was die cut with a curved stitched die and then added both sentiments.



Well that finishes my card for today and thanks so much for stopping by.

Supplies:

Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil
Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy stamp and die set
MFT Die-namics Stitched Basic Edges die set
Lawn Fawn patterned paper
Aleene's Glitter Snow paste

happy holidays

Hi everyone,

I have another card today using a stencil. This one is from Tim Holtz which I absolutely love.
Also entering this in the current Simon Says Flickr challenge #109 where the theme is to 'Let Your Stencils Shine'.



I started by applying 4 different colours of ink to sections of the card being careful not to overlap any colours by using some masking paper.

Once I had finished applying all the colours to the stencil I ran the piece through my die cutting machine using a stitched border die to add a little interest to the sides of my card.

Stamped the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder.

I popped the panel onto a red card using foam tape and added the sentiment also with foam tape.

I added some Stickles to the berries and that completes my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
