Peace and Joy

Hello everyone, I'm stopping by today with a card for the Die Cut Diva's blog. Our theme this month is to use red or pink. I made a Christmas card this time around, I'm planning on making a few each month to get ahead of the game this year. 


I started by inking up my background, then placed a mask over it and used a baby wipe to "erase" some of the color. I stamped the house image on a white peice of cardstock and my sentiment on some vellum. I then heat embossed the sentiment before die cutting the panels. To finish I adhered all the layers using foam under the cardstock panel.

Here is a closer look at the detials...

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

DCD- Love You

Hello everyone! I'm popping up today to share my first card for the DCD challenge this month. Our theme for February is to use red or pink. For my first card I used an ombre effect from one color to the other. 


I used distress ink to color the background after heat embossing it. I die cut the heart from my panel and also from a scrap piece of cardstock, then stamped the image and heat embossed it. Before placing my panel on the card I added some twine and a bow.


Don't forget to head over to the Diva's blog and join our challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

DCD- Rainbow Unicorn

Here is my last card for the no sentiment challenge over at the Die Cut Diva's. Check out the post here to see the others cards for this month. 


I colored the image with colored pencils and then fussy cut it. I distressed the background slightly for the sky and die cut the clouds. For the rainbow I used some circle dies and then colored them with copics. Once everything was adhered to the card I added some wink of stella to the clouds and rainbow, as well as stickles to the stars. Love the sparkle!

Hello all it's past the halfway point of January already! Time is flying by so quickly and it will be Valentines day before we know it. So I'm starting on my Valentine stash with this little card using an adorable bunny from our sponsor.


I printed and colored the image with colored pencils. I used an MFT die to make my top panel. Once all the layers were adhered to the cardbase, I added some hearts and sequins for embellishments!
