Christmas card fun!

Happy almost Christmas!

I've been hanging out with Hero Arts lately playing with the Coffee cup stamps and dies and the Christmas tree layering stamp (currently out of stock). Here are two cards I made at the last all day Saturday crop and boy was I proud! I have to say using the MISTI helped out immensely! 
How have your holiday cards been coming along? These need to get in the mail asap!

Hope you are enjoying this special time of  year!

Moments in time!

Happy Friday! Have you seen this new set from Altenew, moments in time? It's beautiful!! Just saying, lol!
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves to enjoy the moment you are in...and this set has some beautiful sentiments about that.
I started with a piece of watercolour paper, bigger than I needed, and carefully put some color burst on it and sprayed it with a mini mister with water, I always have a paper towel handy to dab up some of the liquid. The colours are olive green and cerulean blue. After I heat embossed the swing with tree in black I found that my blue was a bit too I sprayed more water on it and dabbed it up with a paper towel, if you use watercolour paper it's no big deal, the paper can handle quite a bit of water. The sentiment is also heat embossed. The watercolour panel is cut down to 31/2 x 5, I matted it on black 4 x 51/4 and on the right side I added 3 score lines, hard to see in the picture.
As a final touch I added some Ranger caribbean coast enamel dots, and I mounted the panel on a cream card base. With a damp brush, I added some forest green and pumice stone to the tree and swing. If your brush is too wet, the colour burst will re activate and make a mess of things, ask me how I know, lol!

"Forever" Kit

Good morning, everyone! Today, I wanted to show you a new kit that I created using the Fab Scraps Collection "Floral Dreams". I loved the vintage look of this paper and wanted to create a kit that could be used to honour your loved ones. I love the look of pale pink and dark grey together so I coloured the chipboard pieces with my Tim Holtz Distress Marker "Hickory Smoke". I included some flowers from our embellishment bar and some Crystals from Prima's "Rossi Belle" Collection.
I used a Bo Bunny Stamp to add some interest to the background.

We still have lots of kits on our kit wall so don't forget to stock up so that you will be already to get some scrapbooking done over the Christmas holidays.

Cup of Cheer

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my card for this up coming Wonderful Wednesday. I am using designer paper from Echo Park called "I Love Winter".  I used the die from My Favourite Things called Striped Sentiment Strip. I love the look of this die and there are so many possibilities. I cut the sentiment with the celebrate die from Penny Black's Celebration collection. I used silver paper from Bazzill for the celebrate and snowflake. Then I added some blng. 

I hope you will join me for this Wonderful Wednesday. 
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
