DCD- Christmas Kiss

Hello all and happy Monday! Today I'm posting my first card for the January challenge over at the Die Cut Diva's. This month our challenge NO SENTIMENT!
Our wonderful sponser this month is Sasayaki Glitter

Sponsorship Badge

I know Christmas is over, but it's never to early to start on the cards I need to send out! Besides how could I not use this image. I think this will be a great card for my hubby! ;-)


I started my card by printing and coloring the image. I wanted to keep it pretty simple so I only colored the hat and lights.  Picked some pattern paper to math the copics I used and created a panel. I ran my bottom panel through my Big Kick with an embossing folder. Once everything was adhered I colored over the hat, lights and the girls dress with a Wink of Stella for some sparkle. (Which hopefully you can see a little better in close up below)


Thanks for stopping by and we can't wait to see what you have to share with us!

DCD- New year!!!!

I can't believe it is already the last day of 2016!!! The year has flown by. I decided to make a few New Year cards to celebrate. A big thank you to our sponsor on the Die Cut Diva's blog this month DiesRUs!!!

For my trio of cards I used the same stamps and dies, I just changed the layout and colors.


I used the Twisted citron and salty ocean distress inks to highlight the numbers. I adhered the panel on foam to the cardbase. I added some wink of stella to the numbers and stars for a little sparkle.


For cards 2 and 3 I used abandoned coral and squeezed lemonade distress inks for my colors. I have wink of stella on the numbers on both cards as well as on the stars.


I used the numbers that were left over from the first two cards and layered them for dimension on the last card.
Here is a closer look as I tried to show the sparkle...


Thank you for stopping by and have a Happy New Year!!!

Supplies:
Lawn Fawn- Louie's 123's

DCD- Merry Christmas

Today's post is for the Die Cut Diva's and we are sponsored by Dies R Us. Our theme is layer it...

Dies R Us

I used a die to create window to get more layers with out a lot of extra bulk.


I started by stamping my images and coloring the deer and presents with colored pencils. I used my dies for the bench and light, but fussy cut the other images. I did stamp and color two of the green presents, so that I could layer one with a pop dot on top of the other. I die cut the window out of my panel and used it to layer all of my pieces in the right area. Once all my images were adhered on the cardbase, I stamped my sentiment on the panel and then layered it on the top of the card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I'm also going to link this card up to the last Lawnscaping Challenge. :-( So sad to see this challenge go after 5 years. It was always a fun challenge to play along with when I could!




Supplies:
MyFavoriteThings- PeekaBoo window

Hillside town...

Today's post is for the Die Cut Diva's challenge. Our challenge is Layer it and our wonderful sponsor is DiesRUs



My first card this month...
I started by stamping my image (Stampendous) on watercolor cardstock and used distress markers with a water brush to color it in. Once it was dried I die cut as much of the image I could with a stitched oval die from Lawn Fawn. I used two layers of foam tape to pop my image piece up from the card. 

Looking forward to see what you share with us for out Layered or layer it challenge this month!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
Monica and the Die Cut Diva's
