I used the Pierced Scalloped Rectangles Die - cut 2x to create a slimline card by layering the 2 pieces.

Next I used the Double Stitched Rectangles Dies- cut 2x to layer for my slimline.

Next I cut 2 of the new dome dies- I used the new Merry and Bright Paper Pack for my patterns.

I used the Winter Whimsy Background stamp to stamp on my Double Stitched Dome Die.

Next I used the North Pole Die and added to the left of the card.    I used the Layered Christmas Tree Die to add to the right of the card.    

I added some random enamel dots to the tree as he is adding ornaments to his tree.

Lastly I used the Stitched Merry Die and the Christmas from the Merry Christmas Die to add my greeting.

Autumn Wishes from Scrappy Boy Stamps

 Hey everyone!  I am back with a fun card featuring a fun fall set from Scrappy Boy Stamps - Happy Fall Y'all.    Fall is my second favorite season (with Winter inching in ahead of it) and I love this set because - as do all of Sean's stamp sets- has so many elements.

I started with elements from 2 slimline dies from CC Designs using elements from both sets.  It appears both are retired as I am not seeing available to link to.

I stamped all of my images on Xpress It Cardstock and ran through my Scan N Cut.   Sean does also have coordinating dies, but having my Scan N Cut- I typically only purchase the stamps.

I used Distress Oxide to ink my base layer- Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot, Tumbled Glass.- but then I covered most of the lighter with elements so just the darker blue comes through.

I colored my images with Copics:

Skin: E00, E11, E21

Hair: Y08, Y15, Y17, Y38

Jeans: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99

Reds: R35, R37, R46, R59

Oranges: YR02, YR07, YR09, YR16

Yellows:Y08, Y15, Y17, Y38

Squirrel, Wheelbarrow and Sign: E31, E33, E35, E15, E18

Greens: G05, G07, G09, YG05, YG06, YG09, G17

Acorn Base: E15, E18

Scarecrow Face E31, Colorless Blender

Scarecrow Straw: Y18, YR12

White Gel Pen

I used a Picket Fence die from La-La Land Crafts cut 2 x with white cardstock and also Grass Border Die and Grass Patches Die (both from La-La Land Crafts- colored with Copics above)

I hope you enjoyed my card.

See you soon!

Time to Unwind with The Cat's Pajamas

 Hey everyone!  I am back with a fun card featuring Brains Digi, one of the new digis released this month over at The Cat's Pajamas.  I love Halloween and was excited to play with this digi.   Aside from Christmas, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!    I absolutely love creating Halloween cards and I am addicted to scary movies.     Do you like Scary Movies?   I also love handing out candy on Halloween.    Growing up we (my little brother and myself) never really trick or treated…… my grandma was a school cook so we did the school event where you knock on cardboard, but we never had the full experience.   But I love being on the other side!

I printed the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock and cut with my Scan N Cut.

I colored my mummy with Copics – decided on simple coloring on this image.

Skin: E00, E11

Mummy- T1, Colorless Blender

I inked my sentiment with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and did an angle cut to add a bit of flair to my sentiment strip.

I used some Halloween Paper from my stash and a Haunted Hill Die, to add to the scene.

Lastly I used some hot pink enamel dots to add a pop of color.

I hope you enjoyed my card.

I would love to hear your Halloween favorites!


Autumn Molli from La-La Land Crafts

 Happy Friday!   Today I am back with another fun new stamp from the La-La Land Crafts October 2021 New Release- Autumn Molli.

I used the Home For Christmas Paper Pack for my patterns along with a piece of Kraft Cardstock.

I inked all of my layers with Distress Ink- in Vintage Photo and then used my edge distresser to distress the edges of my pattern paper and cardstock.

I die cut a couple of circles from the Stitched Nested Circles Dies, and added the Jingle Bells Wreath to the center.

Next I added some leaves from the Autumn Things Dies to the bottom of the card.  

I added Molli to the card, with foam tape and then added a few enamel dots to the card, along with the sentiment I cut into a strip inked and distressed.

I love how this card turned out and hope you do too!
