Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! Today I’m sharing a fun card using Chilly Chums and Lovely Snowflake die from Paper Smooches.
I first created the background by sponging Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks. I think it’s a lovely combination.
Copic markers – BG10, BV02, BV11, R83, RV11, V25, Y21, YR23. Distress Oxide inks – Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry
The snowflake was adhered using small pieces of clear foam squares, then Queen & Company‘s Gems were added for a bit of sparkle. Cute little penguin was colored with Copic markers and also adhered using clear foam squares.
I’ll be back soon! 🙂
Hello crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by today. It’such a busy time of year. I so very much appreciate your time and interest. ♥
Today I’m switching gears from coloring to die-cutting. 🙂
My card features Paper Smooches Mitten die with a sentiment from Winter Sampler. The twine is held in place using Gloobers by Queen & Company with the gloobers in position beneath the top mitten. I used a tiny Gloober beneath the knot on the top mitten. It’s small enough not to show and strong enough to hold the twine.
The snowflakes were added once assembled, tucking a few beneath the mittens and string.
Thanks again for visiting today!
Hi everyone! I hope you’re off to a great start this week. 🙂 Today I have a card to share using Cool Dudes by Paper Smooches.
The background was inspired by all of the Distress Oxide Blending I’ve seen on Instagram lately. I first die-cut a strip of Post It Tape using a Snow Drifts die, then applied that as a mask. I blended Salty Ocean and Broken China inks, sprinkled a bit of water, then added in snow dots in various sizes using my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen. (It’s one of my all-time favorite supplies!)
Copic markers – BG10, E35, R29, R39, R89, Y35, YR23; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen
The cool dudes snowman was colored with Copic markers (listed above) then die-cut using the coordinating Cool Dudes Icons die (which is currently 50% off). Once die-cut the snowman was adhered using Kool Tak clear foam squares. (Another supply I like to always have on hand.)
Thanks for stopping by today! 🙂
Hello everyone. How is your holiday prep progressing? Mine is “eh.” But we’re getting there! Today I have a card to share using A Holy Holiday by Paper Smooches.
I first created the background by stamping and white embossing snowflakes from Gently Seasoned Two. I then sponged Wilted Violet and Broken China Distress Oxide inks, wiping away ink from the snowflakes. I also sprinkled a bit of water over the ink to create a somewhat splotchy appearance.
Distress Oxide Inks – Wilted Violet, Broken China
The sentiment and reindeer were stamped, then I added Queen & Company‘s new Gems to the snowflake centers and randomly within the background. (Gems are not just for shaker cards! I often use them as super sparkly embellishments!)
Thanks so much for visiting today!
Hello everyone! I hope you had nice weekend. We celebrated Thanksgiving early, having the big dinner on Saturday since many of us will be out of town. It was really nice. 🙂
My (very simple) card today features A Blessed Christmas with a corresponding Blessed Icons die by Paper Smooches. (The dies are currently 50% off!)
I could easily have stamped the bird onto the card but I chose to stamp and die-cut so I could slightly bend up the wings and branch.
Copic markers – BG10, G21, G24
I added just a bit of color to the bird using a BG10 Copic marker.
To add a bit more definition, I die-cut a pale blue circle to frame the bird beneath the stitched circle.
Thanks for stopping by today!
As I mentioned a few days ago, I’m trying to work on a stash of Christmas cards. I don’t send handmade cards to everyone on my list, but I like to have enough for those whom I know appreciate the effort. 🙂
Today I’ve used Santa Paws with Santa Paws Icons dies by Paper Smooches. (Santa Paws Icons dies are currently 50% off!)
Copic markers – E31, E33, E35, E40, E42, E43, E47, E59, R29, R89; Glossy Accents
Each “buck” was colored with Copic markers (listed above) with the noses then covered with Glossy Accents.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend. We’ve had more rain. Seriously…enough is enough. Everything is so soggy.
Today my card features Thanksgiving dies with a sentiment from Fall Sampler by Paper Smooches. Super quick and easy. 🙂
Copic markers – E07, E08, E31, E33, E35, E40, E42, Y21, YG63, YG67, YR04, YR18, YR23
After die-cutting the images from dark brown card stock, I removed all the inside pieces then die-cut again from X-Press It Blending Card. I colored the inside areas with Copic markers then inserted the pieces into the dark brown image frames.
Tip: It’s easiest to color the pieces without removing them from the image frame. If the pieces fall out, simply put them back in to color.
A sentiment from Fall Sampler finished the card. (I carefully snipped apart the Thanksgiving blessings stamp so it was easier to arrange the sentiment. I think I’ll get a lot of use out of the simple word “blessings” by itself…and I really like the font.)
Thanks for visiting today!
If you celebrate, have a safe and BOO–tiful day!
Paper Smooches Halloween Sampler and fab bat from Halloween Icons dies.
Hello everyone! Finally, we have fall weather in this part of the country and I am really enjoying it. (It took so very long to arrive!)
Today I’ve used Autumn Groves stamp set with Fall Tree die by Paper Smooches.
Copic markers – E00, E07, E08, E09, E11, E13, E33, E35, E37, R01, R29, Y21, YG17, YR04, YR23
I first taped off a section at the bottom to sponge in a grass area then shifted the tape down over the green to spone in a sky. After adding the leaves (which were colored with Copic markers, listed above), I adhered a few brown sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your weather is as nice as mine (today, anyway). 🙂
Hi everyone. I never seem to have a sympathy card on hand when needed so I decided to begin periodically creating in that theme, here and there. Today I’ve used Botanicals 2 by Paper Smooches.
After stamping the flowers, I added a few dots using a Violet Kirarina Wink glitter pen.
A partial Sympathy Sampler sentiment was stamped in white then white embossed with a Prayers die-cut placed beneath.
Thanks for stopping by today!
