Merry Christmas by Jenny Gropp

We have a beautiful card today from Jenny Gropp using With Love #C9501, Christmas Tag Dies #DIE223-Z, Holly Cake #E16044
 
 
 
 
 I wanted to keep the Holly Cake white. To make that white stand out I added the blue in the background to help make it pop!
 
 
 Here are the Copics I used to color the rest of the image. I chose my colors based on the printed word paper in the background.
 
 
I added foam tape in between the layers for dimension. I used a Clear Wink of Stella on the white area of the cake.... It just doesn't show in the pictures. It looks sugary and sparkly in person! On the bottom edge I used just the edge of a Christmas Tag Die, cutting it in white as well and piecing the white letters back in. I also added red Swarovski crystals over the red berries for a little bling!
 
 
Here's the inside with a simple With Love sentiment. I used up the remaining paper to complete the inside. Finished card is an A2.
 
Have a great day!

Thankful by Dina Kowal

We have a beautiful project from Dina Kowal today!

Dina used Pumpkin Pair, CAC Vines Vertical, Thankful & Thank You for Thinking.

I watercolored the pumpkins using Distress Markers, and stamped a few background  images with the marker ink from my palette.

The card is a Pop-Up Book Card, and in general, foldy cards hate me... but this one was surprisingly friendly. Inside the card there are just 2 cut lines, and the score lines were easy to follow.

Once it's all folded in the right directions, the center section looks like an open book.


Have a great day!

Autumn by Anna Wight

Anna Wight shares a beautiful Autumn card today!

Anna used the  DIE143-R Feather die set, DIE215-E Pine Pair die set, and CL541 Autumn Leaves.

AnnaWight0306

To make my card, I used the Feather die set, along with the Pine Pair die set, and a sentiment from the Autumn Leaves clear stamp set. I die cut pretty designer papers in various brown tones as well as a beautiful copper colored glitter paper for a bit of sparkle and shine.

Have a great day!
