Hello Bluebird / Merry Little Christmas

Hello!  I'm here with a holiday card using Christmas is Coming from the new October Hello Bluebird release.  
This set is so unique with these adorable images that are so unlike any I've seen!

To create my card, I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth carstock and white heat embossed the Falling Snow Background.  Using Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink, the ink was blended in ombre fashion upward on my panel.  Using a paper towel, the snow was buffed to wipe away any left over ink to really make the snow stand out.   While I had my Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink out, I continued to ink blend onto a panel.  Using the Christmas Words Die #1, the word "merry" was die cut from this Cracked Pistachio panel and once from white cardstock.

Christmas is Coming

I chose the bear carrying the tree, squirrel carrying the coffee, and one of the cute little birds.  The images were Copic colored and white pigment pen details were added.  These were die cut using the coordinating Christmas is Coming Die.  I created a white hill using the Hill and Dale Die and stamped the sentiment.  I just love the fonts in Christmas is Coming!  To finish, the images were adhered using foam adhesive.

SugarPea Designs / Fall Fox

Fall Fox

Hello!  I'm here sharing a bit of fall using an older but adorable set called Fall Fox from SugarPea Designs.    There are five foxes included in this set along with five sentiments as well as some supporting images too!

The images were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating Fall Fox SugarCut.  Next, I began playing with a layout I had in mind.  Using the Card Front Element Builder SugarCut, a panel was die cut from white cardstock.  To the upper center, a standard circle was cut out of the scallop panel.  A sentiment was stamped in black ink directly below the circle cutout. 

My scene uses the wavey edge die included in the Card Front Element Builder as grass and the clouds are from Whatever The Weather SugarCut.  To finish, I added a simple tied khaki bow with twine.

Avery Elle / Quirky Christmas

Hello!  I'm here sharing a card using one of my favorite stamp sets, Quirky Christmas from Avery Elle.  You have seen me use this set a few times......HERE and HERE.  😉

Quirky Christmas

I started by white heat embossing 3 trees from Quirky Christmas onto a panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  I then blended Faded Jeans and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks over my trees making them fade out toward the middle.

To add the effect of snow, I used the Let it Snow Elle-ments to trim the panel and add die cut "snow".  To finish this, I added some "snow banks" using the Picket Fence Elle-ments and stamped my sentiment in Sapphire Pigment Ink.

Reverse Confetti / Stock Your Stash (Thanksgiving/Friendship)


Hello!  I am sharing a card for the Reverse Confetti.......Stock Your Stash Challenge!  
Every month will be a new theme and this month we are showcasing Thanksgiving and Friendship!

No automatic alt text available.

I had totally different intentions with this challenge.  I kind of strayed from the theme but sometimes you just have to go with it!

Using Distress Inks in fall colors, I lightly blended ink onto white cardstock, stamped the Fall Foliage leaves, and die cut.  I added a black frame using All Framed Up to a white notecard.  I arranged the leaves, stamped my sentiment in the left corner, and added some Metallic Rose Gold Gems from Pretty Pink Posh.


Queen & Co. / Monster Bash

Green Monster

I'm here on the blog today with a fantastic new pom pom kit called Monster Bash!  It can create the most adorable pom pom monsters!  It has so many parts and pieces to make whatever kind of monster you want! 

Queen & Co

My first card uses the large green pom poms included in the kit to make the rectangle monster.  Piecing the monster together is so easy as Gloobers (adhesive dots) are included in the kit.  The hardest part?  Deciding what color the hair, arms, and legs are!  

I added my green monster onto a white die cut rectangle and stamped the sentiment at the bottom in black ink.  This panel was added to my notecard that was already layered with pattern paper from the 6x6 paper pad Fright Night.

Yellow Monster 

My second card I went with making an outer space monster on the moon!  I thought it was perfect for this sentiment!  

Using a die from my stash, I impressed it onto a panel of white cardstock and die cut using a standard circle die to resemble a moon.  I pieced my yellow monster together using the large yellow pom poms, mouth, arms and legs!  I added the monster to my "moon" atop pattern paper from Fright Night.

Hello Bluebird / October Release Showcase

Yeti or Not 

Hello!  The much anticipated Hello Bluebird October Release is now available!  If you are wanting to create for the Fall or Winter holidays, there are so many cute stamp and die sets.  

My first card uses just one of the adorable Yeti images from Yeti or Not.  I started with a watercolor panel done with Broken China Distress Ink.  I then added some color to another watercolor panel using Dusty Concord Distress Ink.  This panel was die cut using the new Glacier Peaks Die.  I added snow caps and some glitter.  

The snow drifts were die cut using the new Hill and Dale Die glitter was added to the tops.  I stamped my sentiment and added my Copic colored Yeti.  To finish, I stamped some snowflakes in the sky using Broken China Distress Ink.

Snow Play

For my second card, I ink blended Broken China Distress Ink over a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I stamped some snowflakes in the same color.  I added ink in a gradient fashion to the die cut word "COOL" (I used the Charlie Alpha Die) and added it along with a stamped sentiment.

I Copic colored 3 penguins and added them to my card panel with foam adhesive.  A few drops of Nuvo Glitter Drops were added for "snow".

Reverse Confetti / Happy Fall-idays / Christmas

Christmas Fallidays 

Welcome to Fall-idays with Reverse Confetti!  
Today, we continue to share inspiration for the upcoming holidays with projects and cards using Reverse Confetti!  (AND there is a SALE too!  Score!)

Today is all about Christmas!

It's no secret how much I love Triangle Trees!  I have so many ideas for this set!  So it was natural to pull this set out to showcase for the Christmas segment of Happy Fall-idays.

I started with a Faded Jeans Distress Ink blended background on Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I silver heat embossed one tree.  Two trees were stamped using Navy Blue ink from Reverse Confetti.  The final tree was stamped in Navy Blue ink over a Faded Jeans Distress Ink scrap.  Love all the shades of blue!  After arranging my trees, I stamped the sentiment at the bottom with Navy Blue Ink from Reverse Confetti and added a silver gem to three of the trees.

Now, let's go visit the rest of the hop for more inspiration!!!
