In Everything Give Thanks!

Hello friends! Fall is here, pretty leave colors, amazing weather (I am a fall weather person), pies and great bakes! Thanksgiving is just around corner, and what a better occasion to send a special card to your special people using the new Give Thanks stamp.

So today, I have a quick tutorial for you, so let's get started.
  • Start dusting little bits of Color Burst powders onto a piece of watercolor paper, then mist the cardstock until you like the result, set aside to air dry or use you heat gun.
  • After that, stamp image in jet Black Stazon Ink using your MISTI, it will take 2 or 3 pressures to get a goo impression (Remember watercolor cardstock is not as smooth as regualr cardstock)
  • After that, stamp the image in Versamark Watermark ink, then add Clear Embossing powder and heat set. (This give your image a shinier look) 
  • Finally, die-cut the stamp piece and adhere it to a Kraft card base, add white and patterned paper panel and a scallop border. Add ribbon and dew drops.

And just in case you want to get any of the wonderful technique Junkies Stamps, you can use this code to get 10% off (excludes Ocotber release)

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Best Wishes

Hello friends! Today, I want to share a card that it is not your regular Holiday/Christmas card, the last few years I have been "late/very late" sending my Christmas cards, so why not sending a "Happy New Year " card!! This sentiment from Technique Junkies is perfect for that. {wink, wink}

This card was super easy to put together, here I use one of the sentiments from "Gift of Christmas" set.
  • For this project you will need a piece of Coastal blue cardstock, Snow acetate and a snowy die-cut (or you can hand cut a snowy hill)
  • Stamp the sentiment on the die-cut , then ink all the edges of the little houses with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Adhere metallic tape on the bottom.
  • Adhere panels on a white card base, add a gold snowflake and your card is done!!

Easy peasy, right?
If you like this sentiment or more stamps , get them HERE, also don't forget to add this code to your shopping cart and get a 10% off (excludes October release)
Hope you like it.
Have a fantastic day!

Let it Snow.

Hello friends!! Happy Monday to you all. Hope you are having an amazing day. Today I want to share a super cool Christmas card. Last week Crafter's Companion was on HSN and this beautiful Create a Card Die was sold out, I really hope more come soon, but if you got one, here it is an idea on what to do with it.

For this project I used the "Sparkling Snowflakes" and "Circle Swing Base Die" , I used Kraft Cardstock for the card base and die-cut the under panel in Metallic red and the top panels in Metallic Gold. I also added a white snowflake on the side. This snowflake is from the Contemporary Christmas Collection.

I was thinking a family picture can be added in the circle part, that would be so cute that way, also you can make one panel without the decorative die-cut so you have space to write something or stamp a sentiment.

Entering this project to Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge: Christmas.

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Technique Junkies October Release

Hello friends! Happy Sunday, October has arrived and that means a new Technique Junkies Release!!  October Release is full of amazing stamps, if you have arrived here from Vicki's blog, you are in the right place. So for this special hop, I worked with 2 sets: Give Thanks and Let It Snow.

In Everything Give Thanks
  • Start making a card base from White cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a panel from black cardstock 5.25" x 4".
  • Cut a strip of patterned paper 1.75" x 5.25" and die-cut a scallop border, adhere to black panel and add straight and zig-zag stitches. Adhere panel to card base.
  • Stamp "Give Thanks" image on a piece of watercolor paper in Versamark Watermark ink, then add Gold Embossing powder and color it with markers (here I used Spectrum Aqua Markers). Die-cut image and adhere it to card.
  • Embellish card with twine and dew drops.

Let it Snow

I had a lot of fun making this card and honestly loved the way it turned out. Sometimes you just have to sit down and enjoy coloring.
  • Stamp image on a piece of white cardstcok in Memento London Fog, use your MISTI and keep it in there for later impression.
  • Color images with markers, then enhance the shadow parts with pencils(here I used Spectrum Noir)
  • After that, apply a good amount of Crystal Lacquer and sprinkle super fine glitter and set aside to dry (at least 2 hours, better if overnight)
  • Die-cut image and also die-cut a layer of snow acetate and adhere them together. (TIP: Add adhesive only on the bottom part, that will be covered)
  • Make a card base from Kraft cardstock, 5.75" 5.5", dry emboss a piece of Coastal Cardstock and adhere them to card base.
  • Adhere image to card base, add snow gold snowflakes, add adhesive to them to hold the top part of the snow acetate.
