Day 1 - Sizzix/Tim Holtz Texture Fades Embossing Folders

Every Shippable order will qualify for this freebie, but hurray as this offer only lasts one day!



There are so many possibilities with embossing folders, but these wings can also be used like a die cut.  After you emboss them, you can easily fussy cut them to add to any project. To see how I created this winged little girl, you can check out my video below.





Here is a close up of my card which shows all the fine details of this embossing folder.

Carolers at Christmas time

Image
One of the things I use to love about going to Disneyland at Christmas time was seeing the holiday Christmas Carolers all dressed up in vintage clothing and singing wonderful Christmas Songs.

If you want to see the process for putting together this card, be sure to check out the video below. 


We just don't see that too much anymore today and it is a real shame. So I thought I would bring back this tradition through a Christmas card. The background is a Music stamp from I Brake for Stamps called Music Sheets Background. I love this stamp because of the layout of the sheets. On many of the Music sheet backgrounds I have seen, there is only one Music sheet, but this one has three and it is a great visual background.

It paired up great with the Bigz die cut from Sizzix calle Carolers. I made a couple of different versions while creating, but there are so many possibilities with this background stamp.

Hello crafty friends. It is a new month and a new sketch/theme challenge over at STAMPlorations. You can either follow the sketch or use our theme which is Stamps & Tags.



I decided to follow the theme this time and created a tag using two stamp sets, "It's All About You" and Fond Expressions 2. I am also using one of the Nested tag dies called Tags #1.

With the holidays right around the corner, this is a great time to create some tags so we hope you join along.

I made 2 cards using two new products for the hop. Here's card #1. 
I stamped my image using Jet Black Archival ink then die-cut the panel with a Label die cut. I also die cut a fancy frame die cut to frame my sentiment.

From there I simply added some gems and Nuvo drops. 



Now for card #2. I decided to stay with the same color pallet, but used an oval scallop die to frame my sentiment. I added some color to the scallops using Ranger Adirondack ink called stream.

I framed my sentiment usin…

Yearly Gifts

Hello Crafty friends. I am here today to share with you a Thanksgiving card I created using two stamps from I Brake for Stamps,Thanksgiving Phrase and Scene and Wood Background Half sheet.

I love that this stamp not only has a great sentiment, but a vintage look to it as well. The scene helps to frame the Thanksgiving sentiment perfectly enabling me to create a very easy, yet elegant Thanksgiving card.


After I stamped the image, I colored the pumpkins using some copic markers.  I then outlined the edge with a my antique bronze distress crayon.  I wanted to add a little grunge to the card, so I stamped over the top with the wood background stamp and some vintage photo distress oxide ink.

To finish it off, I added some Nuvo drops.
