My cards for Simon Says Stamp ‘Making Spirits Bright’ Release!

Hello!  Did you hear the excitement in my hello?!  lol  ‘Making’ cards for Christmas gets me ALL excited and giddy with all the new product!  How to make and shop at the same time!  It is hard! lol

When this die arrived in the mail I was so happy this is what SSS sent me!  I love it!  In my first card, I combined it with the RyLynn Snowflake and a sentiment from Inside Holiday Greetings.

I got out some Distress Oxide ink pads and started smooshing.  It’s one of those come back after a layer dries and add another layer.  I just started another card while I was waiting!

I love these dies with the larger outline cut and the intricate word to layer in the outer cut.  I think you know what I mean… whew. lol  I’m not so great at describing things sometimes!  The Distress Oxide layer has the large ‘hole’ cut in it.  I die cut a piece of craft foam with the large die too and adhered it behind so the silver falala would be down in the hole.

I love how festive and non-traditional this turned out!

My next card…well, I love it too!  CAS, white and so sparkly festive!

American Crafts glitter paper…I like it!  It’s a really nice weight and die cuts perfectly!  Here I didn’t use craft foam behind the top layer but you still get enough dimension to show the beauty of the die.

The sentiment is from the Holiday Message Strips stamp set and poppystamps Holly Leaves and Berries dies are all the embellishment this card needed to keep it CAS.

I’m so excited for this release!  You can see all of it HERE at Simon Says Stamp.  What do you think?  I can’t wait to see it all myself! lol  I see some snowmen that need to come to my house!!!  and pine looking something back there!  eek!

Addicted To CAS Challenge – One Layer Card…

I’m so excited to be a guest designer over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog today! I love CAS, coloring and dies so I really enjoyed this! Thank you for having me ladies!

The challenge this week is One Layer!  I hope you’ll join us!

 

I decided to make a one layer die cut inlay card using My Favorite Things Beach Scene Builder Die-namics set and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.  All the pieces are cut from an A2 size white card-stock panel, inked with Distress ink and the ink blending tools, fit together like a puzzle, taped together on the back and adhered to an A2 card base.

 

I did go back in with Distress Markers to accent the embossed lines of the Palm Tree die cut.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection E4730 Escape the Ordinary.  If you love beach images…you have to see what all PW has…lots of fun images and sentiments.  Check out the releases HERE.

The cutie little crab is from Lawn Fawn Palm Trees die set. I die cut two and glued them together at the very tip of it’s claws.  Pretty cute little photo prop! hehe
