The Greetery: Christmas Eve...


Guess what time it is?!  Time to countdown the days until Fridays Greetery Release!  We have 4 days to share with you the all of the stamps and dies that will be available for purchase.  


Today I am sharing cards using the following new sets:


  • Christmas Eve stamps & dies
  • Frosty Corners die
  • Drifting Die

I am so excited to share ! Let's get started!

This first card uses the new set called Christmas Eve Stamps and its coordinating dies.

The Greetery

This set has SO many possibilities as it has lots of different elements to create the most adorable scenes.  I say those trees and those lights posts and just had to make a little Christmas tree lot.  First, I stamped the snowflake image on an aqua card panel and then added in a little strip of light gray cardstock along the bottom to give it a sidewalk of sorts.  Next, I stamped the light posts and masked off little light rays coming down onto the lot.  I stamped the trees, the card and the banners and die cut them.  They were so easy to arrange to create this fun little scene.

The Greetery

I used the Church image and dies for this next card, along with the Drifting dies along the bottom of the card.

The Greetery

The Drifting Dies are so easy to use and create the perfect little snowy scene.  The church tucks in so perfectly along with those trees.  I stamped the sentiment in to finish off the card.

The Greetery

One last card using the new Frosty Corners Dies.

The Greetery


This one was super simple!   I masked off a rectangle on the card base.  I die cut 4 of each corner dies and stacked them up.  I added the dies to the corners of the masked rectangles and then stamped a sentiment inside. 


The Greetery

I hope you have enjoyed today's reveal.  There are 3 more days to share before Friday's release day!

Thanks so much for coming by today.  See you back here tomorrow for more!

Stamptember {Hero Arts}...



Hello!  Stopping in with today's Stamptember Release from Simon Says Stamp!  Todays collaboration is with Hero Arts and the set is SO pretty!

First check out my clean and simple card!

Stamptember Hero Arts

To create this card, I masked an oval on a white card base and added in some Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress inks.  I LOVE how they blende dup so nicely.  With the mask still on, I stamped the flower stem silhouette in black ink.

Stamptember Hero Arts

I used a sentiment that is not in the set but you can find this one in the Hero Arts set called You're so Lovely.  I thought the typed font was a fun addition to this card.

MFT Vault Day 2...

Hello!  Stopping in today with another card for the MFT September Vault Release.  Today I am using the set called Sunflower Sweetheart and its coordinating dies....

MFT Vault

I love all the images in the set but when I saw this cute little pot, I knew I had to make it the star of the show.  I colored and die cut 6 pots.  I added them to the card base and then scored a 1/2" frame around the card.  


MFT Vault

Last, I stamped the sentiment and added in the adorable sunflower.  So easy!

MFT Vault

Stamptember {Altenew}...



Simon Says Stamp and Altenew have teamed up to create a gorgeous stamp set called Botanical Motifs. This gorgeous set is full of blooms and leaves to create a card for any occasion.

Check out my card using this latest set...


Stamptember Altenew

To create this card, I used the largest bloom and stamped it in white ink on gray cardstock.  After the stamping was complete, I cut the card front into 4 pieces so they would lay on the card base with a tiny bit of aqua card base showing through.  

Stamptember Altenew

I attached them to the card and then added in the thank you die from Altenew.  I added in a few silver pearls to give the card some shine.

MFT Vault

I stamped the Achievement Unlocked image in bright colors on a white cardstock.  I also added the Level Up sentiment along the bottom. 

MFT Vault

The controller is so cute!  It was so easy to cut the pieces all out of light gray cardstock and then add in copics to bring the color of the controller to life.  I also added in some Glossy Accents to give the card a little shine.

Altenew | Refresh Your Watercolor Brush Markers Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to the Altenew Refresh Your Watercolor Brush Markers Blog Hop.  The new Brush Marker Refills are here and they are awesome for so many techniques but even to just keep those brush markers juicy.  The refills are so easy to use to get those markers back to full.

Altenew

I created a super simple card using the new refills for the Tropical Fiesta Brush Markers.  I stamped and heat embossed an adorable image from the Ruffled Flowers set.  I added a little color from the brushes along with a little water to fill the spaces of the flowers and leaves. 

Altenew

I die cut the flowers with the coordinating die and then also cut out a piece of fun foam.  I lined the back of the flower image with the fun foam and added it to the card front for a perfect dimensional flower.  I stamped a sentiment from the set in Obsidian Black Ink.  To finish off the card, I added in a few clear drops.  Super clean and simple!

Altenew
