Snowy Scene thru a Window

 

We made this card at one of my classes. It’s so pretty and doesn’t take long!

 

When you die cut the window from window wishes, the inside piece comes out and you can use that for the window, or for something else. I first did a light Balmy Blue background, then stamped the trees (also from Window Wishes) with Early Espresso and Garden Green. I then added some snow with the puff paint.

I wanted to make the window look like it was inside a house looking out. The pretty Petal Pink DSP is from the host DSP Design a Daydream. If you place an order over $150, I suggest getting that paper. You can use it for lots of cards!

On the bottom, I had a piece of Basic White that was 4 x 1.5. I scored every 1/4″ using the Simply Scored. It makes it look like beadboard! I then placed a very small piece (4 x 1/4) of white on top.

For the sentiment, I used the Christmas Banners. You can stamp the sentiment and the banner before die cutting, but Ii did it different. First, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white powder. I then die cut it. Then, using Petal Pink ink, I stamped the banner. It’s hard to get it on there perfectly, but I liked the way it looked.

Perfect Partners: Waterfall with Mountains!

I showed this card in my video about the Perfect Partners. Don’t forget my really good deal!

 

This card was fun to make, but it took a little bit of time.

The Waterfall dies are awesome- there is a ton! I die cut everything on this card.

I wanted to make mountains behind the waterfall and the Mountain Air is perfect for that!

Palm Trees for Christmas!

 

 

You may have seen the video of me making a background that was a sunset and an ocean. I showed this card in that video. I have made other cards that have palm trees with “lights” on them. Reminds me of one of my favorite commercials- The Corona beer one around Christmas time.

Here’s the video of me making the background (there’s two- one very quick and one longer):

 

 

 

This card just used one kind of paper- Basic White! I don’t think I’ve ever done that before!

The palms from the Palms Dies were die cut and one flipped over- so they would lean towards each other. I colored them with Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green.

For the rhinestones, I used the red ones and the basic ones. For the basic ones, I colored them with the Shaded Spruce Dark Blend.

The sentiment is from Sunkissed and die cut with the Stylish Shapes dies.

The birds are from the Waves dies.

Love these types of cards! (as you can probably tell since I’ve made so many!)

Perfect Partners: Pigs in Love!

I do make some reverse stamping and die cutting a few times. For this one, I just thought it would so cute if they were facing each other.

The first thing I did was make the background with Blending Brushes and Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green inks.

The tree between them is from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set. I colored with Blends.

I used one of the sentiments from the Christmas Scottie stamp set. Like I said, it looks like they’re in love!

Here’s my quick video on how to reverse stamp:

 

The cute little bird die in the piggy dies- I wanted to make it look like the birds were flying the banner.

The background paper is the Kraft Paper. I embossed it with the Fern Embossing Folder.

Perfect Partners: Apple Harvest- How to Make Paper Look Like Notebook Paper! Video

When I look at apples, I think of teachers. So when the dies came out (only here until 9/30), I knew I wanted to make a thank you card that would be great for a teacher! And using the die from the Blossoming Happiness dies, I knew I had to make one of the backgrounds look like notebook paper!

Here’s my video on how I made the notebook paper:

Upside Down Witch in a Bucket!

I really wanted to make a card with a witch upside down in a cauldron. I couldn’t find any dies or stamps that worked (the Best Witches stamp set has a cauldron, but it’s too small). So, I decided I would use the Full Baskets dies!

For the background, I first used the masks (the large plaid looking one) with my Blending Brush and Granny Apple Green ink. I did it very light on the paper. I liked the way it looked, but I thought of the Glitter Washi. It was so easy to make it perfect- since I had used the masks, the lines were very even and straight! So, I just added the washi to those lines!

The boots are from the Bewitching stamp set. I fussy cut it. Colored with the Highland Heather and Pumpkin Pie Blends.

I die cut the bats from the Scary Silhouettes dies with Basic Black paper. Using my Wink Of Stella, I made them sparkly.

Ok, when I finished the card and set it down, I picked it up upside down. Whoa! It looks like a witch in a skirt! Almost like Mary Poppins! Another idea!

Pretty easy card!

Perfect Partners x 2: Yetis with a Christmas Tree!

Out of all my supplies, I didn’t have a tree stamp/die that looked the right size to be with the yetis. When Perfect Partners came around, I knew I had to get those trees!

Lots of snow on this card!

All the dies on this card, except the die to die cut the sentiment, are part of Perfect Partners and ONLY AVAILABLE until 9/30 or when they sell out!

First, I made a night background with my Blending Brushes. I used Night of Navy, Polished Pink, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, and Mango Melody.

I stamped a yeti with Balmy Blue and die cut. I then did a reverse stamping and die cut so they could face each other. Here’s a quick video on how I do that:

 

I stamped the tree with Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz. Die cut it.

I die cut the tree stand with the Silver Foil paper (it has 3 different finish/colors). I die cut the bows with Silver Foil paper with a different finish.

The mountains were die cut with Gray Granite paper.

The sentiment is from the Ringed with Nature stamp set. I stamped on Basic White with Pear Pizzazz. Die cut with Stitched Rectangles.

I then added the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to just about everything!

Happy Halloween from Two Witch Pumpkins

 

 

Every Halloween season, I always see lots of pumpkins with witch hats. So, I decided to make a card like that!

 

The background was made in my video Watercolor Techniques #1 seen here (it starts around 13:58):

 

For the pumpkins, I stamped with Pumpkin Pie on Pumpkin Pie paper. Die cut. The eyes are made with the negative pieces from the fence die in the Barn Dies- as is one of the noses. The star is from the Witch Hat builder punch. The smiles are from the Scalloped Contours dies.

Their hats are from the Bewitching Bundles. Stamped with Gorgeous Grape and Fresh Freesia.

On the ribbon, I colored the white part with a Highland Heather Blend.

For the bottom, the swirly dies are from the Rustic Pumpkin dies. I used the white glitter paper.

For the sign, I stamped the sentiment (from the Scary Cute stamp set) with Gorgeous Grape. I die cut with the banner die in the Scary Silhouettes dies. I then embossing with the Timber embossing folder. I cut a thin strip for the bottom and embossed that, too.

Watching the Sunset on the Beach!

 

 

You might have seen this card on my last card and video. I made this card first, and then my husband suggested a Christmas tree on the beach! We are in Florida- it happens! Here’s a link to that:

Christmas Tree on the Beach

After I saw this picture from the Ritz Carlton in Naples, Florida, I wanted to make a card that looked like that. I’ve stayed at that Ritz, it is absolutely one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been. And there are great restaurants! The Sunkissed stamp set was used for the chairs and umbrella. I fussy cut it.

 

Here’s the video on how I made the ocean (this is the one with Beach Boys song!):
