I hope you are not tired of cards using Triangle Trees because I have another one to share!!  Seriously LOVE this set!

Using Reverse Confetti Dye Inks and my Misti, I stamped a panel of trees using some colors that remind me of retro holiday ornaments.  I added detail patterns using black ink over the tops of a few trees.  I stamped a sentiment and added tree "trunks" with a fine tip sharpie.

Avery Elle / Winter Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Stuck on You1

Hello and Welcome to the Avery Elle Winter Release!  If you are a fan of creating for "heart" day or love or just because, these sets will have you covered!  


I began my card with an ink blended panel of Worn Lipstick and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks.  I trimmed this down to 4x4 so it can be layered behind the Tons of Hearts Frame Elle-ments done in white.  After diecutting, I saved a few of the mini heart confetti, colored them in, and added them to my card.  My cute cacti images were Copic colored and added to my scene with foam adhesive.  A speech bubble from Photo Mat Elle-ments was used for the sentiment.

Queen & Co. / Hooray and Dream Big

Dream Big 

Hello!  I'm here sharing some birthday cards using the newest WORD dies from Queen & Co.  

Using a past shaker kit called Shaped Shaker Kit Balloons, two of the balloon images were die cut using paper from Merry & Bright 6x6 paper pad.  I decided to use the die cut as is and not as a shaker.  

I adhered a white panel to a white notecard that was layered with pattern paper from Merry & Bright.  To pull in the colors, the balloons were added and the sentiment "sending smiles" was done in paper from Merry & Bright as well.  To finish, the sentiment (layered 3 times for dimension) was added along with a few Bubbles embellishments.

*******************************

Hooray

My second card uses pattern paper from Happy Harvest along with Pretty Presents Shaker Kit.  To tone down the pattern, I added a stripe of vellum over the top and adhered the die cut words.  

Assembling these shakers are so easy!  I assembled two presents and added toppings from the Pretty Presents Shaker Kit.  To finish, a few clear Bubbles were added to the presents and background.

I am loving making holiday cards with non-traditional colors this season!  (and if you know me at all, I don't normally create for the holidays--that's a whole other story sometime!)  

To create this card, I ink blended Worn Lipstick Distress Ink onto a panel of Piggy Bank cardstock.  This panel was ran through my Big Shot with the Snowballs Cover Plate.  The snowflake is very dimensional with the white layer being heat embossed with Silver Pearl EP.  The top snowflake was stamped with Rose Premium Dye Ink and added to my notecard with foam adhesive.  To finish, a few gems embellish the snowflake as well as some silver thread.

Advent2

I am so excited to be a part of the My Monthly Hero Blog Hop this month!  Hero Arts is one of my favorite companies so designing with the My Monthly Hero Kits is always an honor!   You are going to LOVE this month's kit......I had so much fun and made SIX cards with the main kit and add-ons!!  I will be sharing more of them over on my Instagram feed so make sure to follow me there to see the rest of my cards using the MMH kit!

This month's kit contains an Advent cling stamp with ornaments, a clear Advent icons stamp set, coordinating Advent ornament door die, along with some embossing powders.  

Advent3

I gold heat embossed the ornaments onto red cardstock and ran this through my Big Shot with the Advent die.  I carefully pulled up all the little ornament windows to stamp all the icons inside.  

To finish, I added my panel to the icon panel and onto a top folding white notecard.  A gold/white twine was added to pull the card together.

Advent

***********************************

I adore the tiny reindeer image included in the main stamp set in the kit.  So I made a card focusing on it!  I scored my notecard every 3/4" and stamped two rows of reindeer leaving a space to stamp my sentiment.  

I added black eyes with a black pen and red stickles for all the noses!  Clean and simple!

Advent Reindeer

***********************************

My last card uses an add-on die........the DIY Ornament Kit.  It comes with some beautiful iridescent papers.  I impressed the largest ornament into a white cardstock panel and trimmed it down on 2 sides.  

Ornament

After die cutting the largest ornament out of the iridescent paper, it was adhered in the center over the impressed image on my cardstock leaving the points unadhered for dimension.  My sentiment, from Winter Wreath, was GREEN heat embossed onto a strip of white cardstock and added with foam adhesive.  A few sequins were tucked in there to add to the sparkle of the card.  To finish, the panel was adhered to a coordinating green cardstock to pull this all together.  I love how this came out!
