Believe

I am back today with another card using my The Greetery stamp and die stash while also creating some much needed Christmas cards. 


I actually made three cards using the Budding Beauties Winter stamp set and matching dies but I am only showing one of them today. I stamped the holly bunch twice, changing up the ink on the second one just a little. I then stamped the bottles from the Bottled Up stamp set and cut with the matching dies. A simple patterned paper bottom border was added to the card front and sentiments stamped from the Papertrey Ink  December Typed Words Mini set. The images were attached using foam dimensionals

A Pink Merry Christmas

Can I go ahead and confess that I have a lot of The Greetery stamps and dies, yet I've used very few of them?! And I just received items from their new Christmas stamps release. So....I decided I needed to use some of my older ones before I reached into the new goodies. 


Today's card features the Pine Blossom stamp and die set. The image was multi-step inked using green parrot for the pine needles, blush, bubble gum and cherry for the flowers and aqua sky for the leaves. The sentiment was stamped onto a pierce circle using cherry ink. The sentiment piece and the two snowflake corner pieces cut with the Frosty Corners die were attached to a ballet slipper cardstock piece cut with a stitched die. The floral image was attached last using a layer of craft foam.

I am submitting this to the Christmas Kickstart Challenge #40-Pink Christmas.

Stay safe. Be healthy.

{Reminder} The Cat's Pajamas October Challenge


I am here today for the mid month reminder for the October TCP Tuesday Challenge which is to create a project with Autumn in mindThis includes autumnal colors, activities or a holiday such as Thanksgiving or Halloween. TCP products are not required but encouraged. You have until the end of the month to submit a project and there is a $50 gift voucher up for grabs. 


I decided to go with a Halloween theme for my reminder card. I have been trying to use more of my patterned paper on my cards because I have so much of it! I haven't used the Big Top CutUps in a long time but in looking back every time I do I make it a bit different. I love Halloween carnivals but I assume they are verboten this year due to Covid. Sigh. I used the ticket strip patterned paper for the sentiment. I also added a small pumpkin stamped and cut using the Year of the Rat bundle

Peace on Earth

Hello. I have a Christmas for today's post. 



After stamping an angel from the Reverse Confetti Joyous Holiday stamp set and cutting out with the matching die, I colored with Copic Markers. The star was from the set was stamped with golden glitz ink and also cut out with the matching die. I also used a gold gel pen on each of the diecuts. I used the Inside Scallop Circle Tag to cut from gold metallic cardstock. This started out being a shaker card but then I decided I did not want to cover up the pretty angel themed patterned paper. The sentiment was stamped onto a tag cut with a die from the Three Tags set. I added the small star diecut to it, then tied to the circle tag with gold metallic thread. The circle tag was then attached to the cardstock and patterned paper background using foam dimensionals.

*New* Winslow & Rusty {Purple Onion Designs}


Purple Onion Designs has a cute mini collection illustrated by Julian Charlton (@juliancharlton) which is all about fall and Halloween. 


I stamped the Winslow & Rusty-Campfire Friends image onto Copic friendly cardstock cut with a stitched die. After masking the images I blended in harvest gold ink for the firelight, fine linen for the ground then salty ocean, stormy sky and faded jeans distress ink for the night sky. I filled in with Copics and also colored the image with Copic markers on the images.  After stamping one of the accompanying sentiments, the image panel was attached to a kraft card base.
