Fall Thanks Card by Nadine Carlier 1 ps

I used several different dies for my card.  For the outer frame, I used the largest die from the Pointed Rectangle Frame Die Set and for the leaves, I used the Whittle Maple Leaf & the Whittle Oak Leaf dies.

The pumpkins and owl are so cute! I die cut them out with some Rinea Foiled Paper using the Whittle Owl and Whittle Pumpkins Dies and layered them up on the Birch Stitched Frame Die.  Then added a quick sentiment using the Give Thanks Brushed Die but only used the thanks part of the die set.

Believe in the Magic
by Jeanne Jachna

Believe-Three

I hope you're having a great weekend!  My favorite way to relax is with crafting.  When the dishes are put away and everyone is gone it's time to unwind.
Believe-Five

The holidays are right around the corner and I've got my mind on cards to send to family and friends.   Last year I was loving pink for snowy skies.. I think I'm leaning more toward purples this year!  
Believe
I created a distress background of  Milled Lavender and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.  I covered the entire panel in Milled Lavender and then went in around the edges with Seedless Preserves.  I splattered the panel with water, some watered down Seedless Preserves and some white ink.   Next I adhered the panel to my card base. 
Believe-Four

Next I die cut a white card stock panel with the Wooded Glen Landscape.  I ran it through my die cut machine a second time to cut out the Believe Fresh Script.  I adhered this white die cut panel to the distress ink panel.  To give it a finished look I added a die cut Pointed Rectangle Frame. 
Believe-Three

Now for the fun part.. embellishing!  I assembled a little Winter Cabin to add to the scene.  I added distress ink to the die cut to bring out the impression of the logs that the cabin is made of.
Believe-Two
I stacked circles of different sizes in shades of yellow for a big full moon.. and of course.. Santa's Sleigh!   Can you imagine some children inside the cabin waiting for his arrival?   I hope they're being very good! 
Believe-One
A peaceful snowy scene that ALMOST has me wishing for winter..  almost.  LOL!  Have a great weekend! Jeanne Floral Signature copy

Sending Sparkle
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0040

Hi! Nancy here, and I have a card full of sparkle today!

DSC_0049

My card uses a few of Poppy's fabulous dies, and some sponge inking too. I'll show you how I created it.

DSC_0028

Once I have a basic card idea, I get all my diecuts ready. For the Blooming Rose, I inked a scrap of cardstock with Distress Ink  colors before cutting it out.

DSC_0030

I did the same with my tag.

DSC_0035

For the background, I cut the 2 largest frames from the Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frame set.

DSC_0041

This photo shows the sparkle when the light hits the card. Sentiment comes from Magic and Sparkle Clear Stamp set, and the sparkle is embossed with Stampendous Winter Wonderland. To help it stand out a bit, I used a colored pencil to hi-light the letters.

Hope you're inspired to give your card a bit of sparkle and shine. There are so many wonderful products out there.

Sprays, dry glitter, Stickles and Nuvo drops. Take your pick, and add some shiny goodness!

Bee Themed Window Card
by Jennifer Svare

BeeBorder2

Hello!  Today I'll share how I made this window card using the adorable bee stamp from the Little Kindness set, which paired perfectly with the Hexagon border layers.  Many different sentiments could have been used for this card, but I chose to leave the inside blank with just the bee.

Interior

The Studio Hexagon layers were used to make the window and frame, and the Little Hexagon Border layers were used to create the border.  I used distress inks to make a pink, yellow, and orange gradient underneath the hexagon layers. 

A little shimmer was added with a shimmer pen to cover the hexagons, frame, and bee. 

BeeCard

Check out the video below for more details on how this card was made, and I hope you have a great day!

Elegant Koi
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0027

Hi! Nancy here, and I'm bringing you a card made with one of my favorites, Elegant Koi. Love the movement of this sweet little guy, and I used a few techniques to make him that I'd love to share with you.

1st off, the background

DSC_0003

I chose my colors based on water, such as a fish would be swimming in. Distress Oxide works best for this technique.

DSC_0004

I selected a stencil, this one is Memory Box's Garden Peony Blossoms.

Then comes the fun part...

Spritz the back of the stencil with water, and carefully place it on the inked panel.

Place a paper towel over the stencil, and weigh it down with a book or in this case I used an acrylic block.

DSC_0028

Wait awhile for the water to soak into the ink. I waited 5 minutes.

DSC_0030

When you remove the stencil the image is set into your panel! Isn't that wild? Thanks to Marcia Hill, who taught me this fun technique!

DSC_0022

I also used a stencil to create the glittery scales for my Elegant Koi. First die cut with vellum, then spread with Nuvo Glimmer Paste (Moonstone colored with re-inker). I wanted a bit of orange on my yellow koi, so I added a few spots of watercolor.

DSC_0005

Brush Hello was cut 3 times with 3 shades of  blue shimmer paper. 

Hope you enjoyed today's post and my little tutorial. It's a fun technique that really adds a punch to a background, and another  fun way to use your stencils.
