White Christmas with pop of Red

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

I hope you all have been doing good. Sorry it’s been awhile, you know how it goes…..life and with Thanksgiving it’s been a bit busier. I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving with friends & family!

Today’s card is not for any challenges. Just something that I wanted to try out. It’s a conglomeration of lots of white cardstocks with a pop of color…..hence the title, lol πŸ˜‰

I dry embossed the white naturals cardstockΒ  and made it a shaker card. I filled it with snowballs and white fine glitter from my stash.

I inked up the deer with the shimmer paint, let it dry overnight then sponged the red over top after die cutting it out.

I used some glitter tape from my stash to die cut out one of the snowbanks. Then I added some shimmery embossing paste over the top. After drying over night I glued it on top on the other snowbank.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend is a blessed one ❀

 

Fall Heart Card

Hiya Stampers!

I haven’t got to create any cards lately. I’ve been busy on and off with a big sewing project and it’s not going so well. This card didn’t go so well either, I’ll tell you in a bit. I wasn’t going to share it, but decided to go ahead. Life isn’t perfect and we all have those days, am I right? Has that ever happened to you? πŸ˜‰

This card is for two challenges. The first challenge is for Global Design Project. Here’s the theme they gave us.

Here’s my take on it:

Can you see the mess up? The ink smeared on the tree when I added the shaker top part.Β  Oh, well, I certainly wasn’t going to start over since I did that part last. I’ll end up giving it to somebody that won’t care, lol πŸ™‚

The next challenge is over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the sketch they gave us. As you can see, I did an interpretation of the sketch instead of straight forward.

I love this Buffalo Check background stamp. It does take a little bit of practice to get a crisp image though, I will warn you. With a stamp positioning tool it really helps a bunch!

Well, hopefully you still liked my sample card. Thank you so much for stopping by, have a blessed weekend ❀

 

Guest Designer at Global Design Project

Hiya Stampers!

Today is super exciting for me, I am the guest designer for Global Design Project #153!!! πŸ˜‰Β  They gave us a really pretty color combo to use:

Here’s what I created:

I made a fun shaker card using the amazing limited-time Blended Seasons Bundle. The Framelits that are in this set made it a snap to put together! I used a piece of vellum for the bottom diecut and window sheet for the top. I added some sequins in the middle after using foam strip dimensionals to frame it up.

Here’s a close up:

I really love this patterned paper from the Nature’s Poem DSP. It’s so very pretty, even though you don’t see much here in my example. I embossed the leaves and water colored them using the new set of watercolored pencils that are also a part of this bundle. I then curled each leaf with my bone folder and popped some of them up onto dimensionals.

Here’s another view:

I fussy cut the leaves out. It doesn’t take that long if you have some good music to listen to and Elvis kept me company πŸ˜‰ (yes, I’ve always been a die hard E fan since I was 18 months old). And finally, I used several strips of retired ribbon stacked upon each other to finish off my card.

Well, I hope you like my sample and don’t forget to grab your Blended Seasons Bundle before time runs out…..only 4 more days til’ it’s gone forever!!!!! 😦

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day ❀

 

 

Mermaid Shaker Card

Hiya stampers!

I created a shaker card with the Share What You Love Bundle Suite and Magical Mermaid stamp set. I recently watched two different videos with the Mermaid stamp set, one was a shaker card and the other was a pop-up card…..so I combined the two!

Here’s the outside:

The inside uses the Lovely Laurel Thinlits, which are retiring sadly. Trying to get good pics proved hard to do.

Here’s the inside of the card
