Holiday Magic

Hi everyone I'm sharing two new cards using some great stamps available from the store to create my cards.
As we get closer to Christmas, if you have a lot of cards to create, consider using a large focal stamp such as the Large Snow Pine as your main image.  This stamp is approximately 4" tall and takes center stage on your cards.

Each Large Snow Pine was stamped with Imagine Moonlight  White Ink and white embossing powder.  The left over embossing powder around the image just adds to the snowy effect.

The cards were created from black cardstock with a layer of pattern paper and wrapped with ribbon.  The panel was then edged with white ink and adhered to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Holiday Magic is from Sentiments 3, a set of 20 different stamps for all your crafting needs.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! This is designer April wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving! I used a brand new turkey stamp called Wild Turkey.

I colored the turkey using colored pencils, fussy cut it and pop dotted it to the background. The background was made by using a weave embossing folder and then swiping the raised areas with brown ink. I cut the leaves using the Memory Box Fresh Foliage die, cut from an inked background. I stamped the saying on the Spellbinders Fancy Tag die and sponged brown ink on the edges. The background was layered on red and brown card stock.

I hope that you will join in this month's challenge -- the theme is to use red, orange and brown on your project. You might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

Clean & Simple Stamptangle Leaf

Hello from design team member, Heidi.  Autumn has been a few weeks late where I live, so we still have glorious color well into November.  I do fear we might be raking when it is rather cold, though!

Today, I am sharing this clean and simple design using a Stamptangle Leaf.  I heat embossed this in gold and then used regular Distress Inks to add color with a blending tool.  I first tried this with the Distress Oxides, but found that I got a more brilliant color when using the regular Distress inks.  

I cut a circle in my card front and then embossed the white cardstock behind that with a wood grain embossing folder.  The very cute sentiment was added and a little twine bow.  I am very pleased with the Clean and Simple look.

The stamps I used can be found in the JFF online store.

Don’t forget about our November Challenge!

Have a crafty day!
