Let it Snow!


Hello! Let it snow is certainly a sentiment I'm hearing around the house these days... We have the possibility for a white Thanksgiving, and my 9 year old is soooooo excited.  She absolutely ♥s the snow, so much so, she even offered to help shovel the driveway.  Woot!

To create my project today, I started with one of Whisker Graphics' Middy Bag in Navy Blue Horizontal Stripe, and stamped it with some of the snowflake images from the Alley Way Stamps' (TAWS) Winters Butterflies in versamark ink.  I then heat embossed the snowflakes with white powder, then traced them with stickles. While the snowflakes were drying, I removed the tag reinforcer from the gray Large Colored Tag, then stamped the tag with the Seeing Spots set from TAWS, and heat embossed it with white as well.  Once that was done, I re-adhered the reinforcer to the tag.


Next, I die cut a circle using the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts from Reverse Confetti on white CS, then covered it with adhesive.  I then covered the front of the circle with Bright White Solid Divine Twine, and topped it off with a hat and nose made from CS, as well as some dark grey gems and silver glitter paper cut with the Doin' the Wave Confetti Cuts.

I then stamped one of the sentiments from Sparkle & Shine onto mint CS, and heat embossed it with white (are you noticing a trend?? Lol!).  The ends of the CS were given a banner shape, then the sentiment and snowman were attached to the tag.  To finish up, I closed the bag and punched it with a small hole, then attached the tag with Bright White and Teal Solid Divine Twine.

Have a great one!

Christmas Greetings


Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created using a couple of my favorites from the last Clearly Whimsy Stamps release.  

I started with a pink card base, and stamped the snowflake images from Sparkle & Shine in versamark before heat embossing with white powder.  I then die cut a large circle from the center of a piece of medium gray card stock, then adhered it to the card base with pop dots.  Next, I die cut the main portion of the greeting using the Christmas Large Word Die on a piece of mint card stock.



I then cut a strip of white card stock and stamped it with the remainder of my greeting using the Christmas Greetings set in gray ink.  The strip was then adhered to the card front on an angle, trimming off any extra paper.  To finish up, I embellished with dark gray gems and covered the die cut word with stickles.

Have a great one!

November SFYTT - Magic & Joy of Christmas


Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created for this month's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT).  This last quarter of the year is just *flying* by... Hard to believe that in less than 2 weeks it'll be Thanksgiving, and then 6 weeks from now is Christmas.  Craziness!


To create my card, I started by first cutting some chevron strips using the Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts, then adhering them to the card base.  Next, I cut two of the larger snowflakes from the Let it Snow Confetti Cuts, and adhered them to the base as well.  I die cut a tag from green CS using the Tag Me Confetti Cuts, then attached a silver metallic twine bow to the top.  I then die cut a circle using the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts, and stamped it with one of the sentiments from Seasonal Sentiments.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the tag, then attached the tag to the card front with pop dots before embellishing with aqua enamel dots.

ShowCASe Your Style - Christmas Wishes


Hello! I'm popping in to share the card I created for the current ShowCASe Your Style Challenge. This week's challenge is based off of the color scheme below:


To create my card, I started with a white card base, and stamped the mistletoe image from Christmas Greetings in silver ink twice.  I then stamped the image in versmark on a scrap piece of white CS, and heat embossed it in gold before cutting it out.  Next, I stamped another scrap piece of white CS with veramark ink, and heat embossed it with gold powder before cutting it into strips.


The sentiment was stamped in veramark onto black CS, then heat embossed with white powder.  I then used the Christmas word die on a piece of silver glitter CS.  Next, I adhered strips of black, gold and silver glitter CS to the card base.  To finish up, I adhered the glitter Christmas sentiment and embellished with dark grey gems.

Want to play along with us? All you have to do is create a CAS card based on the colors in the inspiration image, and post it HERE.

Have a great one!

Sprinkled with Fun


Hello! I'm popping in to share a fun birthday card I created using some of the newest Reverse Confetti goodies...

To create my card, I started by die cutting a scallop circle using the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts on a piece of light gray CS.  I then cut out a smaller circle from the center, and backed it with a piece of turquoise polka dot paper.  Next, I added a layer of glue around the inside rim of the scallop circle, and adhered little "sprinkles" before attaching it to the card base.



I then stamped the sentiment from Donut You Know in versamark ink before heat embossing with white powder.  I trimmed the end of the fuchsia CS, and attached the strip to the card front with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with coral enamel dots.


 

Have a great one!

Countdown to Confetti: North Pole Wishes


Hello! Today is the final sneak peek day for the November Reverse Confetti release, and the DT is featuring cards/projects created using the new North Pole Wishes and Seasonal Sentiments sets.

For my card today, I started with a few scrap pieces of light pink, fuchsia and lime CS, and cut them into chevron strips using the new Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts (love!!). The chevrons were adhered to a piece of light gray CS, then cut into a rounded tag shape using one of the dies from the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts.  I then cut a hole in the top of the tag, and used the Tag Me Too reinforcer die on a piece of fuchsia CS.  



Next, I die cut a piece of vellum using the same rounded tag die, and stamped it with one of the sentiments from North Pole Wishes before heat embossing with white powder.  The two tag shapes were adhered together, then holly leaves and berries (North Pole Wishes Confetti Cuts) were added for interest.  To finish up, I added some silver metallic twine to the tags, adhered them to the card base with pop dots, then embellished with white enamel dots.
