Joy to You and Yours


Today's card was created by using my Gelli Plate and Distress Inks to create the background. I cut the Gelli Plate panel down to size and stamped my main focal point sentiment which I then embossed with gold powder. I then punched some stars with shiny gold card and adhered them, stamped my sub sentiment and trimmed it down before adhering it as well. I also used a cover plate to give a bit more interest for my base card and drew around the edge with a gold Painty Zig Pen to finish it off.

From our Family to Yours



I created my background with my Gelli Plate, Distress Inks and a stencil. I then die cut my sentiment from the background and also die cut it three times with white card. I then layered the white card into the cut out and replaced the background die cut. I then added a few white stars and a sub-sentiment to finish it off.

Celebrate Today



I created today's card by die cutting my top panel and then inking a new stencil with rainbow coloured Distress Oxide inks : Kitsch Flamingo, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon & Wilted Violet. I then layered it onto a pink card stock and mounted it onto the base with foam tape. To finish off, I die cut the main sentiment several times and adhered them together for added dimension and made the top layer pink glitter card, I then added a sub sentiment below.

Joy



Today I was able to make two cards out of one image. My earlier post tells you how I created a card with a die cut and my Gelli Plate, well this card is the die cut that has now been coloured by the Gelli Plate. There isn't any stamping on this card, but that happens occasionally. As I already had my image coloured, I cut a white panel down to size and layered it onto some matching designer paper. I have so much designer paper that I hardly use anymore, that it makes me happy when I can make a card with it.
I then die cut my sentiment 4 times and adhered them together before attaching to the base. To finish off, I added some soft green coloured gems.

Christmas in the Heart



I created today's card after being inspired by a card made by Karen Dunbrook at Snippets where she used a Gelli Plate and a stencil to create a background image. I didn't have a Christmas stencil but I did have some dies, so I cut out an image that I wanted to use from heavy cardstock and off I went. I swiped DI Peacock Feathers and Fossilized Amber and then brayered the colours to blend. I then laid my die cut image down on the Gelli Plate and then added my panel. I brayered the panel very well to ensure the ink was transferred onto the card and around my die cut. I then lifted my panel to reveal the above. I stamped my sentiment and clear embossed it and then flicked the panel with some watered down Peacock Feathers. I also punched out some tiny stars and added them for a bit more interest before attaching it to my base.

Christmas Cheer


I have had this piece of card with a hot foil border sitting on my desk for ages so today I thought I need to use this! So I trimmed a piece of gold card to frame it, picked a suitable sentiment and stamped, coloured and fussy cut the little penguin which I popped up on mounting tape for some added dimension. I love the simplicity of this card and the white space, hope you do too.

HB2U

 

Meet today's card...I have been trying to use up some of the huge pile of designer paper that I have on hand and never really use anymore. So today, as I'm a bit of a 70's girl and love this funky style paper which I didn't want to cover up, I decided to die cut HB2U to be the focal point and offset them so that the purple card would give a shadow effect. I then layered the purple card and originally was making the base pink card but after getting some ink in the wrong place (you can still see a bit on the purple card, I trimmed the pink down and layered it onto some cream card. I actually think it looks better then it did before so happy days. For some added interest, I added some glitter dots to the center of the flowers.

A Little Birdie Told Me...




I created today's card by using a new circle stencil and Distress Oxides : Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple & Rustic Wilderness to create a watercolour background. For each colour, I swiped the ink pad onto a plastic mat and spritzed with water then laid my stencil down and placed my card over the top. Each time, I dried the colour before doing it again or changing my ink colours. I continued to do this until I was happy with the background. I then stamped my little reindeer & bird, coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them. I die cut my 'Christmas' sentiment with a shadow die and stamped the 'merry' onto the panel with black ink. Once I was happy with the placements, I pop dotted my reindeer and die cut sentiment and layered the panel onto a matching base card.

Hello...Thinking of You



I created today's card by using DO Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers & Wilted Violet and a new stencil to create a watercolour background. I swiped each colour separately onto a plastic mat and spritzed water and mixed it with the ink. Every time I placed my card into the ink/water mix, I dried it before doing it again. Once I was happy with the look, I removed my stencil and used a rectangle die to cut out my panel. I then stamped a silhouette floral off to one side and added my sentiment. The 'hello' sentiment was die cut twice to give it a bit of dimension and I trimmed down a sub-sentiment and adhered it with foam tape. To finish off, I adhered my panel to a purple card base.

Beautiful Day



I stamped my florals and coloured them with copic markers. I then used a die cut border and cut it down to the size I wanted. I also cut another white layer down using the next size up die. Before layering, I stamped 'wishing you' and embossed in clear then stamped the rest of my sentiment onto a white strip. Layered it all together and added some glitter dots for a little sparkle.

Hello...Sending Smiles



I created today's card with a new stencil. I masked off the flowers and sponged the leaves with DI's Mowed Lawn & Twisted Citron then masked off the leaves and sponged them with DI's : Ripe Persimmon & Crackling Campfire. I die cut my 'hello' three times in white card and once in black and layered them for dimension. I then stamped my sub-sentiment and popped it below. I die cut my first and second panels. Mounted my first for some height and then layered them.

Ho Ho Ho



A new die to play with from Simon Says Stamps and I'm still using DP from my huge stash! I die cut my words and layered them over striped DP. I then stamped, coloured and fussy cut my penguins. I coloured their feet the wrong colour but we won't talk about that. I drew a fine black border around the top panel before I added my penguins. I added some red dots with a Tombow Pen and added glass finish glue to the baubles so they had a bit of shine. Once I had finished all of that, I foam mounted my panel.
