I used some of my favorite products from the new release on this card. The Winter Unicorns Rock are such a fun set. There are so many little unicorns that can be used in a lot of different scenes. I also love the Panel Shapes Die set. This set has dies that cut out a shape and leave a stitched border. I love these and think there is so much you could do with them! For this card I created little windows for the unicorns to be seen from.

I just love the stitched detail for these. Another favorite product of mine this month was the Christmas Wrapping Paper stamp set. This features a large stamp with what looks like a wrapping paper pattern. I knew I wanted to heat emboss this fun stamp as soon as I saw it!

I heat embossed it over vellum and created a flat shaker card with some large flat glitter and a Distress Oxide background. I pulled some stamps from the cute Sweet and Fun Holiday set to finish the card. I love those little images within the pattern! I think this is another great, versatile product.

If you didn’t catch my card from yesterday’s sneak preview here it is as well!

Your Next Stamp Challenge 93

Hi, all! Happy Friday! I hope you’re all having as warm and summery weather as I am today. It’s a bit humid, but I know I’ll be missing it when it gets cold again πŸ™‚ Today I’m back to share a card for the Your Next Stamp Challenge #93. Today I went with the sketch challenge to work with. I’ve been wanting to use the Window Panel Die, and this was the perfect excuse!

I layered the Snow Fall Panel die and the Window Panel die to create a starry background for my penguin fortune teller. Then I stamped out images from the Waddles Fortune Teller stamps. I colored them in with my Copic markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies.

I popped the penguin and his table up with foam tape onto the Window panel die. To finish the card I heat embossed the sentiment onto the bottom window with white embossing powder and adhered it straight to the card base.

Kindness

Hello everyone! Today I’ve got a really fun card to share with you using some Honey Bee stamps. The amazing Melissa, who owns Honey Bee, was sweet enough to send me some products to try out. I’ll be making a few projects with these products over the next couple weeks so be sure to come back and see them all!

Today’s project utilizes the Zen Floral stamp set Melissa sent me as well as the Kindness stamp set that I already had. Here’s a look at the card:

I made this card but die cutting a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock using a stitched rectangle die. Then I stamped the the largest stamp of the set along the bottom of the card panel. I wanted the flowers and leaves to go a little further than the original image did so I added a couple of the single flower and leaves stamps in the set. I used my Copics to color everything in. This was so fun and relaxing! As I colored I couldn’t help but think of all the awesome color combos there are for these images. The sky is the limit!

081a

Next I took a blue dye ink and a mini ink blending tool and added some color to my sky. I wanted the area closest to the flowers to be the lightest so I added the most color at the top of the card panel. Then I took some of the words from the Kindness set. I stamped them in VersaMark and heat embossed some gold & platinum embossing powder over it. The final touch was splattering some white paint over the whole panel. I attached it to a card base and it was done!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this card. I’ll see you again soon with another card!
