Holiday Card Series 2016 | Card #11 | KWCardDesign

Hi all!  Welcome back to another card in my HCS for this year! Today, I am playing with die cutting felt and creating this snow flake card!  I used some dies from both My Favorite Things, and Lawn Fawn.

I used a piece of Blue Violet card stock from Simon Says Stamp, and die cut my panel with an Avery Elle frame die, and also die cut pieces of white felt from Paper Trey Ink using both the Simply Snowflakes dies from MFT and the Stitched Snowflakes from Lawn Fawn

I also created a tone and tone background using the same ink color as my card stock.  I love this deep blue purple color.  It is one of my favorites!!


To add some spark and extra interest to my card, I used a strip of silver sparkle card stock left from previous project and adhered it to the left side of my focal panel, and also a strip under my sentiment, which also comes from MFT.




I adhered my snowflakes with my Multi Matte glue from Ranger,  and adhered my focal panel to my white card base.  To finish it off, I added some Nuvo drops in MoonDust to the snow flakes. 

I thank you for stopping by today!!  See you soon!

Right at Home Shop | Peace On Earth

Hello all! Hope you are having a great week so far!! We are nearing to the weekend and that also means my birthday!!  This month the DT for Right at Home shop has been featuring a different stamp each week from the Holiday Release.  This week we are focusing on the sentiment stamp set Magic of the Season.

To start my card, I die cut a piece of kraft card stock from a stitched scallop rectangle die to create a small focal panel.  I took the stamp set Holiday Ribbons and I stamped one of the patterns to create "faux ribbons" on my panel.  I took the "x" pattern first and I heat embossed it in gold embossing powder, followed by stamping the diamond strip on top with Lobster ink.  Next, I stamped my sentiment Peace on Earth, but I wanted to stamp it in a stacked pattern in the middle in Pine Needles ink.  To stamp my sentiment, I carefully inked up the sentiment one word at a time, and there was enough space in between to use my small ink cube to ink of the sentiment.

For an extra touch, I stamped the berries and branch images from Bits and Pieces: Winter since I had just enough space to fit those in on the right and left of the word " On" in my sentiment.



I wanted to create a background to stand out from my focal point, so I took another piece of kraft card stock, and prepped it with my powder tool, and inked up the Gingham Background with white pigment ink, and then applied some detail white embossing powder to really make the white background pop!  I then added a strip of green striped washi tape from my stash and added it to the middle to bring out more of the green in my sentiment, and then took one of the stitched frame dies from the Find the Beauty die set, and die cut my panel so it would have the stitched detail all the way around.  



For assembly of my card, I added some foam tape to my focal panel, and adhered it to my embossed background piece, and then added that to a top fold A2 size kraft card base. For a final small touch, I added a bit of shimmer to my berries with my Wink of Stella shimmer pen.

Thank you all for stopping in today, and remember to head over the Right At Home Shop to find these sets I used today and many others!! Have a great day!

Holiday Card Series 2016 | Card #9 | KWCardDesign


Hi and welcome to another card in my Holiday Card Series - today I am playing with the Avery Elle set called Oh What Fun.  This set came out last year, but I love it so much, and wanted to bring it back out for this series.  I colored this image during The Daily Marker Coloring challenge, so you won't see me color Santa, but I did basic coloring with my Copics.  

I also used some pattern papers from the Oh, Deer 6x6 from Fancy Pants.  This is another one that came out last year, but I didn't get to use it as much as I wanted to.  I did create a snow scene on a piece of white card stock for my Santa, by stamping the snow cluster and heat embossing it with white embossing powder.  My panel was die cut from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die.  I also used the banner die for my sentiment and this is found with the same die set from Lawn Fawn.

Then, I added some Tumbled Glass distress ink, to bring out those snow flakes.  



I die cut my pattern papers from the Stitched rectangle die from Right at Home, and the Hero Arts Infinity rectangles.  


I created a top fold A2 size card out of Sea Glass card stock from SSS, and for a final touch I added one white enamel dot on the sentiment banner, and added some shimmer with my Wink of Stella shimmer pen. 

For all the supplies used - please see the list below the video tutorial!  Thanks for watching!!
