Farmhouse Wreath

watermarked17(2018-09-07-1436)

I am definitely feeling the holiday spirit starting to sink in!  (now if the weather in Texas would just cooperate)  I just held the first of two Stamp a Stack of Christmas Cards this past weekend!  This was one of the fun cards that the girls made!

It’s so simple too!  Just run the Seasonal Wreath EF through the Big Shot.  Use a sponge dauber and some Old Olive ink and apply to your raised surface.  I used a slight circular motion with light to medium pressure.  Then I added berries with the journaling end of the Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.  Did you notice that I colored the Tea Room Ribbon with the same marker!?  Cool huh?

It needed a little more texture, so I ran a piece of Crumb Cake through the Big Shot using the new Corrugated EF!  (I found the if the lines are horizontal with the embossing folder while running it through works best)

Next I took the sentiment from Hearts Come Home and stamped it with Black Memento ink.  This was a fun card to create and I know the girls loved it this weekend!

Golden Deer

Que up the Christmas cards!  I saw the Dashing Deer bundle in the New Holiday Catalog and I had to have it!  I made this card for my stamp clubs this month!  I was very happy that the detail inside the deer remained after using Versa Mark and Gold Embossing Powder.  Looks so majestic!!

I paired it with a strip of paper from the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper!  You should see the patterns in this pack!  Just gorgeous!!  And you get 4 of each of the 6 designs (2 sided/12 pages) watermarked24(2018-09-07-1437)

Next, I added some texture by running a piece of Garden Green through the Big Shot using the Swirls & Curls embossing folder! Then I stamped the scroll with Crumb Cake color on color on the top and bottom. To create the flowing banner, I used my Bone Folder to curl the middle of the sentiment piece.  I curled the ends the opposite direction and added 2 layers of dimensionals in the center to help it keep its shape. I finished the card off with a bow made from the Cherry Cobbler Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine.

Last Chance! Blended Seasons!

LZVO0928

I made this card for our Quarterly Team Gathering!  Cute and simple, plus it features all of the items that you can purchase now through TOMORROW!  It features the Assortment #2 Watercolor Pencils and the colors are amazing! A great compliment to our first assortment!  And there are also the Stitched Seasons (sold as a bundle or separate) dies that create visual interest and texture to your projects!

I also have fallen in love with the new Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder!  It creates a textured card stock feel to your smooth card stock!  Of course I used Wink of Stella on my Crushed Curry flower buds for subtle bling! Plus it helps blend the watercolors too!  Just be sure to brush off on your scratch paper after you are done.
