DCD- Christmas chandelier



Hello all, here is my first card for the Christmas in July challenge over at the Die Cut Diva's blog. Our sponsor this month is the Frantic stamper, who is generously donating the die below!



I used a mix of Hero Arts (linked below) for my first card this month.

I started by taping the sides of my card to mask them. Then stamped the script background, the distressed strip for the ground and the sentiment. The tree then is stamped and embossed with pearl finish embossing powder. The chair and chandelier were both stamped and then die cut on a scratch piece of paper, before being added with foam tape. To finish the card I added some bling to the elements.

Below is a closer look at the bling and the embossing powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

DCD- hello, summer...

Here is my last card for our Summer theme challenge over at DieCut Diva's. We are thankful for our wonderful sponsor Bugaboo stamps! 


I colored the image with copics and used a die to cut the panel on one side. I trimmed the panel down so that it would "centered" on three sides. Wrote my sentiment and wrapped twine around the panel, before adhering it to some kids foam. I wanted it to pop off the cardbase a little.

Thanks as always for stopping by and have a great day!

Supplies:
Bugaboo- Critter stack
LawnFawn- simple stitched hillside borders
Simple Stories- pattern paper
Copic Markers
twine
cardstock
White gel pen

DCD- Hello Chick



Today's post is a post for the Die Cut Diva's challenge blog where we have a summer theme currently! I can't believe today is the first official day of summer! I thought the Fired Chicken image from Bugaboo was perfect! 


I used markers to color in the image. I die cut the panel before adhering it to the base. I think die cut my sentiment, then colored it black with a black glitter marker. To finish off the card I added some clear glitter to the sun glasses for more sparkle and some Nuvo dots on the chair.


Thanks so much for stopping by and have great day!
Monica

Supplies:
Bugaboo- Fried Chicken
Little B- sentiment die
Nuvo- Gloss white crystal Drop
Wink of Stella- clear and black
MFT- diagonal stitch die
Tombow dual brush markers

Love this moment

I've been spending a little more time in my craft room working on some projects other than cards. I do enjoy making them, but it's nice to start playing catch up on my scrapbooking (which is way behind)! I think I owe some of the new found inspiration to Counterfeit Kit Challenge


I will be linking this page to challenge as it's the third page I've made using my kit. I don't show everything I pulled for the kit, I didn't have a whole lot of room, but my papers are the core of my kit. They are what I will be trying to base my pages off of.


The layout is about my son and how he wanted to take his tiger (he got it from the Childrens hospital) for show-n-tell. I was the mean mom and said no. He would have been heart broken if something happened to it. We comprimised on a mini photo shoot so that he could show the pictures of his special tiger.

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it so much! Have a blessed day!
