Peace & Love


I had several days off this week, so I got some extra stamping time. Not as much as I wanted, though!
I used Joyous Holiday, Get In Line, and Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles (all from Whimsy) for this Christmas card.
Thanks for stopping by!

My card for today shows Grunge Snowflakes.
 
 
I stamped a kraft card base with the cheesecloth block from Distressed Backgrounds.  On the main panel, I white-embossed the Christmas tree, then watercolored some light blue over it.  When it was dry, I lightly stamped some text background over it.  I layered it on a dark purple panel, and then embossed the sentiment on the same purple paper and adhered them on the main panel.  I added some silver twine at the end.

Today I am showing you Key To Love with Cardbuilder Hearts of Love:
 
 
I started by cutting out the large panel of the new Cardbuilder die set.  I then layered on some text background (Basic Backgrounds and Borders 1) in light gray ink.  I then used several stamps from Key to Love in two colors of pink to attempt to make a collage.  I sponged the edges of the panel with the same light gray ink, and adhered it on a card base.  I added some gold sequins last.
 
Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow for the last day of the November Whimsy Release.

I am showing you a sneak peek of the new Geometric Snowflake die.  This is a gorgeous large die that cuts out so many pieces that you can reassemble. 


I cut it from silver shimmer cardstock, and glued the outline onto my card front of turquoise glitter cardstock on a light blue base.  I then popped up the individual snowflakes that also result from this die.  I cut a Sentiment Banner and stamped one of the sentiments from Mini Holiday Sentiments on it, and put it on top of my snowflake.  I added some large crystal dots to the centers of the smaller snowflakes.  This card is a little bit shorter than a standard A2 size.
Thanks for stopping by!

MFT WSC 306


I found two lovely paper pads in the Target dollar spot last week, and I used papers from one of them here. It's turning into hot beverage season around here!

Peace Love Joy

This card is heavily inspired by one I saw on Pinterest and recreated with Whimsy supplies. I used the Snowflakes dies that were released last month, and the sentiment is from Snowflake Wishes.  The snowflakes were cut from glitter card stock, so it's sparkly in real life. 
Thanks for stopping by, come again this week for the Whimsy November release!
