Joyous Holiday Season - Spellbinders

Good morning! I recently was sent some super cute Spellbinders Dies from A Charming Christmas Collection by Becca Feeken - they were so beautiful and intricate! So I used them together to create this soft and detailed holiday card:


The two sets I got to play with were Snowflake Toppers Etched Dies and Cinch and Go Poinsettia Etched Dies


I started off by cutting the border on my panel of white cardstock - isn't the detail on that amazing?


Next, I cut all the layers of the poinsettia from white cardstock, and blended on Distress ink to add color. Do you see how the ink blending reveals the etching detail on them?


Next, I blended some distress ink from the top edge of my die cut panel, and stamped my sentiment on there as well.


I layered up the flower, adding a white jewel in the center of it, and adhered it next to my sentiment.


Finished off by adhering that panel to my white cardbase, adding some gold splatters with my Starry Colors palette, and wrapping and tying some twine around the front in a loose bow.

Not to Walk Alone - Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge

Good morning! Stopping by with a card this morning for this month's Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge - the fun monthly challenge at Reverse Confetti!


This month's theme is Thanksgiving and Friendship:


I had fun pairing up an adorable image from Greatest Adventure with a sentiment from My Tribe - and a bit of distress inking as well. I started off with a white cardbase, added some post it tape for a mask, and then blended some Salty Ocean distress ink to create the water. I stamped and colored that adorable image in soft colors, then die cut it with the coordinating Greatest Adventure Confetti Cuts.


I mounted it with foam adhesive over the water, added my sentiment in the top corner, then added a bit of a heart detail using XOXO Confetti Cuts. To blend the hearts perfectly, I blended some blue distress ink on some white cardstock, then colored some of one of my Copic markers on another part of it, then used that to die cut the hearts, adhered them together, then downon the card - using adhesive just in the centers so they stayed popped up!

For You-Hoo - Heffy Doodle Release Hop

Good morning! I'm super excited this morning to be hopping along with Heffy Doodle Stamps to celebrate the newest release - and it is a HUGE and FABULOUS release! I fell in love with so many of the new goodies, but had to start with these darling owls from the new Hootiful Stamp Set!


I started off by creating a watercolor night sky background with watercolors. I also used the new Starfall Stencil and embossing paste to add some stars to the night sky. While all that dried, I stamped and colored up all the little images to build my scene and cut them out.


I added a die cut frame that is actually from Pretty Pink Posh - adhered that with foam adhesive, and then added all the elements to my scene over the top, also with foam adhesive! Sentiment was heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock trimmed into a banner shape.

Amazing Person You Are - Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit

Good morning! I'm back this morning to share another card using the amazing and BRAND NEW Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for November - Thanks & Leaves! This kit has a beautiful fall stamp set called Thanks & Leaves (kind of like the kit!), some beautiful butterfly embellishments (I used them on my cards below), some hilarious snarky sentiment stickers (I brought them in the car to read on a drive - had us all laughing!), and lots of other little bits and pieces as well.

Today I took the stamp set and put it to work, but used some different - and maybe a little non-traditional and unexpected - colors to put my card together!


I started off by stamping my sentiment (which is just amazing I have to say!) in the center of a panel of white cardstock. Next, I used several of the smaller stamp elements to stamp in a border along the top using a mix of Wisteria, Dusty Sage, and Caribbean Blue. Isn't that a pretty color combo?!?!? I trimmed the panel down, mounted it on a scallop border die cut of Smoke Gray Cardstock, then mounted with foam on a white cardbase.


Here is a look at the entire kit contents - you can find it HERE:


I love trying something different and unexpected - and this color combo was so fun to play with!

Bold Butterfly Thank You - Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit

Hello! I'm here to share a couple of cards using the amazing and BRAND NEW Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for November - Thanks & Leaves! This kit has a beautiful fall stamp set called Thanks & Leaves (kind of like the kit!), some beautiful butterfly embellishments (I used them on my cards below), some hilarious snarky sentiment stickers (I brought them in the car to read on a drive - had us all laughing!), and lots of other little bits and pieces as well.

I started off with these bold and simple cards featuring the butterflies, stamp set, and some distress ink blending:


I was so happy with how these came out! As soon as I saw these lovely butterfly embellishments, I knew I wanted to feature them on some cards. They were so beautifully detailed, I wanted them to shine right front and center without too many distractions!


For this first card, I blended Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch distress ink:


For the second card, I used warmer colors - Ripe Persimmon and Festive Berries:


I added some splashes of water on the backgrounds, then also added some white paint splatters for more texture and interest.


I adhered the butterflies with a good little squirt of Ranger Multi Medium Matte - and left them plenty of time to dry. Once it dried, it held it very sturdy and solid!


I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiments from the beautiful stamp set below the butterflies - isn't the detail on the butterflies amazing?


Here is a look at the entire kit contents - you can find it HERE:


Which color combo do you prefer? Warmer or cooler?
