Beautiful Blizzard Stamp Set, Frames and Flags Die Set, Banner Trio Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

To start my card I cut a piece of blue cardstock to 6 1/2" x 5" for my cardbase.  For the layers, I cut a piece of silver glitter cardstock to 4 3/4" x 3 1/4", and a piece of smooth white cardstock to 4 1/4" x 2 3/4" on which I blended Distress Oxide Inks Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch.  I then splattered my ink blended piece with white paint and set it aside to dry.  I used the stitched fishtail banner from the Frames and Flags Die Set to cut a piece of silver glitter cardstock.  

After the white paint on my ink blended piece had dried, I stamped these absolutely gorgeous snowflakes from the Beautiful Blizzard Stamp Set and white embossed.  I used the stitched fishtail banner from the Banner Trio Die Set to cut a blue banner on which I white heat embossed the sentiment.  I cut the banner down using the same die for a better fit on my card, then white heat embossed the edges.

With all of the pieces ready, I assembled my card layering the cardstock and popping up the sentiment banner with foam tape for some dimension!

Clarence & Clarice Valentine Card

 Hi everyone!  Today I am sharing a Valentine card I created using the new Clarence & Clarice - Love Stamp Set by The Rabbit Hole Designs!

Clarence & Clarice - Love Stamp and Die Set, Valentine Stencil by The Rabbit Hole Designs #therabbitholedesignsllc

For this card I used the Valentine Stencil with Distress Oxide Inks Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, and Candied Apple to create a background.  I then splattered the background with gold watercolor paint.

I love these adorable images of Clarence & Clarice from the new Clarence & Clarice - Love Stamp Set and couldn't wait to use them!  I stamped them out on Copic friendly white paper, colored them with my markers, and cut them out with their coordinating dies.  

I assembled my card using pink cardstock for the base, and foam tape to pop up Clarence & Clarice for some dimension!

For finishing touches on this card I added white gel pen accents and glitter to the heart!  Thank you and I hope you enjoyed my card today!

Coffee and Gingerbread Cards

  Hi All!  I'm over on the Pawsome Stamps blog today with these two CAS cards I created by combining the Coffee Besties and Gingerbread Lane Stamp Sets!

Coffee Besties Stamp and Die Set, Gingerbread Lane Stamp and Die Set, Peppermint Sequin Mix, Sparkling Mint Sequin Mix by Pawsome Stamps #pawsomestamps #handmade

To start these cards I cut two A2 cardbases, one red glitter cardbase, and one teal cardbase.  I then die cut two white background pieces.  

I stamped out the images I wanted to use from the Coffee Besties Stamp Set, colored them with Copic markers, and cut them out with the coordinating die set.  I then stamped out the adorable gingerbread girl and boy, and a candy cane, from the Gingerbread Lane Stamp Set, colored them, and cut them out with their coordinating dies.  I white heat embossed a snowflake from the Gingerbread Lane Stamp Set onto the pink coffee cup, and replaced the straw in the polka dot coffee cup with a candy cane!

Bookmark Die Set, All Booked Up Stamp and Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Next, I stamped these super cute images from the new All Booked Up Stamp Set, colored them with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating die set.
