I picked Have a Hoot and the coordinating Peek a Hoot dies to work with.

I used the tags die in the set to create these apertures in Crumb Cake cardstock and stamped this with Crumb Cake ink.

This was used to mark a piece of Whisper White, identifying where the owls would be stamped. I used the Stamparatus to position the stamps.

The images were stamped again on a separate sheet for colouring and die cutting.

Pool Party ink was applied to the white cardstock before colouring the tree branches. (No need to colour the owls at this point).

This was adhered behind the Crumb Cake apertures, then onto a piece of Real Red cardstock before adding to a Crumb Cake card base.

The owls were coloured with Stampin’ Blends markers before die cutting. They were adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Finally, Real Red ink was used to stamp a sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The video tutorial for this project will be available tomorrow, do stop by again then!

More Yuletide Cheer

Hello Everyone,

This card was made completely spontaneously using supplies I had with me whilst crafting with my team.

I wouldn’t normally use so many stamp sets on one project but look how lovely it is!

The card design is reasonably self explanatory, building the background with the images as shown in the photo. The gold snowflakes were a late addition but really help tie the layout together.

A Stitched circle die was used the cut the sentiment which adhered with dimensionals.

Family, Friends & Happiness

Hello Everyone,

I haven’t used this image from the Frosted Foliage stamp set, so I created this simple card.

The outline image was stamped on to a card layer with Gray Granite ink and coloured with a Cherry Cobbler watercolour pencil.

Some little dots from the Beauty and Joy set we’re added to fill in the background.

Cherry Cobbler Ink was added to the edge of the card stock before adhering to the card base.

The sentiment was added at the bottom with dimensionals.

Seasons Greetings

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would share this non traditional Christmas card design with you today.

The colour combination I used is Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry.

Whisper White card stock was coloured through a decorative mask using Stampin’ Sponges.

Before removing the mask, versamark ink was pressed over the panel. (The ink pad will get stained, so using an older pad might be a good idea).

I applied some clear embossing powder and heat set this to give a shiny design. This was adhered to a white card base.

A sentiment was added using Rich Razzleberry ink.

The stars were heat embossed with silver powder and die cut with the coordinating dies.

Christmas Time

Hello Everyone,

This stamp set is one of my favourites in the Autumn Winter catalogue – especially these snowflakes!

I chose a slightly different colour palette and like the end result.

I started with the largest snowflake and Highland Heather ink. Next I added Balmy Blue and then Silvery Shimmer inks.

The panel was adhered to some Gorgeous Grape card stock and then to a pre-prepared card base with dimensionals.

Loops of silver thread were secured to the card. The sentiment was stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink and cut with the Timeless Label punch. This was added with dimensional adhesive to complete the card.

Toile Tidings

Hello Everyone,

It seems that we are already hurtling through November so during this busy period quick cards are the order of the day.

These feature the Toile Tidings papers in traditional Real Red and, Garden Green.

The card base was made the coordinating card stock colour.

The Designer Series Paper was layered on to a Very Vanilla card layer and then to the card base with snail adhesive.

I picked out a, sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. Matching ink was used to stamp on to Whisper White card stock in contrast to the Vanilla.

The sentiment was cut with a 1-1/2 inch circle punch and adhered to a 2-1/4 inch circle of vellum. This was added to the card with dimensionals.

A bow was tied from matching ribbon and secured with glue dots.

This is the Garden Green version. On this card I moved the sentiment to the side and added some metallic pearls.

Warm Wishes

Hello Everyone,

I have had this idea in my head for a while, finally it is made a reality.

The card uses the Rustic Retreat stamp set which I fear has been a little overlooked but I love it.

My card base was made with Crumb Cake card stock. The pine bough image was used to embellish the background using Early Espresso ink.

The topper panel was stamped with the treeline image with Shaded Spruce, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz inks. This was layered on to Poppy Parade card stock.

The cabin and sentiment were stamped with Early Espresso and Poppy Parade inks respectively.

Watercolour Pencils were used to add a hint of colour to the cabin before Die Cutting with a Stitched Oval die.

Layered Let It Snow

Hello Everyone,

More Christmas crafting today with the Snowman Season stamp set and the adorable Let it Snow Speciality Designer Series Paper.

The Designer Series Paper was adhered to a white card base.

The flip side then used to make a smaller topper panel. Tulle ribbon was tied around the panel before adding to the prepared card base.

The snowman was stamped in Memento black ink and coloured using a combination of watercolour pencils and Stampin’ Blends Markers. The image was cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.

Flirty Flamingo ink was used for the sentiment which was also die cut.

Layers were assembled using dimensionals. Some snowflakes which were left over from yesterday’s project finished the card.
