Cut It Out!




Hello!  This card is for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge at Stamp TV- Cut It Out!  We are  to cut a die on the card front and to use the cut out negative on the card front, and THEN the cutout portion on the inside.  I cut GKD Poinsettia die from A Year of Flowers on GKD Red Velvet CS for the front and layered a GKD White CS on the inside.   I then stamped the Poinsettia stamp through the cut out on the front with Memento Red ink and added some dots of Red Nuvo Crystal Drops.  I finished the front by heat embossing the Sentiment from GKD Joyful Holiday with white EP. Added some White Enamel dots.
For the inside I added the cut out Red Poinsettia after I stamped and heat embossed the image.  Stamped the words from GKD Peace and Joy with Memento Red ink and added a strip of Pattern Paper from stash scraps.

Here Comes Santa


Hello!  My card depicts a scene of Santa leaving on his annual trip with Mrs. Claus waving him on his way. The stamps and dies used are all from Hero Arts October kit.  For the Sky,  I used White CS
that absorbed some accidently spilled Metallic Blueberry Mist on my work desk.  The Mountain layer was cut from special paper included in the kit.  The die cut elements were all colored with Copics.  Added snow with Snow Maker.  This was a fun card to create.

Thank You Card

Welcome! Today's card was made for 2 challenges... 1.Mod Squad Challenge It's all in the Color-to make a card or project using no white or ivory on the front. 2. Power Poppy -Power and Spark Challenge to use Portion Control...Create a project using only a portion of an image or of multiple images. No full images allowed .
I stamped a portion  of Power Poppy Poppies stamp in 2 corners of a Green Sage CS panel with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold EP.  I colored the images with Koh-I-noor Pencils.  I stamped the sentiments from PP Vibrant Thanks set with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold EP.  The word Thanks was triple embossed with the Gold EP to give a more dimensional look.  (Saw this tip from Jennifer McQuire).  Finished with a Gold Metallic CS mat and a Red card base and Gold sequins.
This card looks much better in real life than in the photo.  Always hard for me to photograph shiny surfaces and get the true colors.
Other challenges to enter:
Creative With Stamps: Challenge #20 Thankful
