TIS THE SEASON SEQUIN TREE



Hi Everyone!
I was going to make a shaker card using the tree die from the Nostalgic Season Die Set then decided to make a tree full that was all sequins instead.
I used the Postage Stamp Dies to cut the panel then added the base of the tree using the stamps and dies from the Nostalgic Season Stamps & Dies and some Icing on the Cake ink. 
Next I drew a triangle lightly in pencil, then began adding the Nashville Sequin Mix with some liquid glue. 
I stamped the sentiment from the same set using Rouge and Icing on the Cake inks then added the panel to the card base with craft foam.

THREE ROOM STUDIO SATURDAY CHALLENGE - GLITTER

  


Hi Everyone!
It's Saturday so that means it's time for another challenge at Three Room Studio. This week the prompt is GLITTER. Definitely not my go to medium but I do love how it looks on cards. 

We share a new prompt every Saturday and choose one winner a month. The winner will win a $15 Gift Certificate to spend in the Three Room Studio store. The more weeks you play the more chances you have to win. 


I mentioned above that I'm not a big fan of using glitter which is why I was over the moon excited when I found a pack of 12x12 paper that was all glitter but I could run by hand across the paper and none of the glitter would come off! I was like a kid in a candy store happy when I found it. It's made by Recollections and I found it last year in my local Michaels. 


I cut a piece of the blue glitter paper and added it to my card base then printed out the Three Room Studio Wild Rose Digi image. I colored it in using copics (listed below) and then using my cutter I cut the straight edges on the white card stock just up to the rose then used my scissors to cut around the flower and leaves.
To add the sparkle to the center of the flower I first made sure it was dry with a powder tool then using a glue pen I added tiny drops of glue to the stamen. I poured on some Singing in the Rain Embossing Glitter from WOW then heat set it. I adhered this all to the card base with craft foam then added the sentiment from Three Room Studio Moving Sentiments set with more craft foam.




I hope you'll come join in the fun and play along with us. 

The following team members are participating in this weeks challenge:


Copics used:
Petals R35, R29, R89
Leaves G24, G99, G94
Flower center Y02, Y11
Shading N0,N2

BRINGING GOOD CHEER


I used the stocking die from the Nostalgic Season Die Set and the Urban Plaid Patterned Paper to make this rainbow of stockings. 


I adhered each one directly to a slimline card base leaving room for the sentiment. The sentiment is from the Nostalgic Season Stamp Set and stamped with Midnight ink. I chose this sentiment because there is 8 letters in BRINGING and I used 8 colors of patterned paper. I used a blender pen and colored each letter to match one of the papers.

CHRISTMAS IS HERE SLIMLINE SET


Want to quickly make a bunch of cards? 
Use patterned paper!
I used Grandma's Attic Slimline Patterned Paper along with the Nostalgic Season Stamps and Dies and the Retro Ornament Dies to make these 8 cards.


I cut 8 pieces of 8 1/2x11" card stock on the 11" side to 7" and then scored them all on the 7" side at 3 1/2". I added a different piece of patterned paper to each one using all 8 of the patterns in the pack. Next I stamped out the sentiment from the Nostalgic Season Stamp set 8x and colored in the Christmas with coordinating ink. I adhered that to some scrap card stock then adhered it to the card. Next I used stamps and dies from the Nostalgic Season Stamps and Dies and the Retro Ornament Dies to add embellishments to 6 of the cards. Two of them I didn't add anything but the sentiment.


There's 24 sheets of patterned paper - 3 each of 8 patterns so you could quickly and easily make 24 cards to send out this Christmas.

THREE ROOM STUDIO CHALLENGE - CIRCLES

Hi Everyone! I have some news to share. I recently was asked to join the Three Room Studio design team and I immediately said YES! Today I'm joining in on the Saturday challenge and this weeks theme is Circles.

The winner will win a $15 Gift Certificate to spend at the Three Room Studio store. For all the details on the challenge click the image below.



For my card I chose to use the Gerbera Daisy digital image because the flowers are circle shaped. I printed it out 5x and colored them with some Prismacolor pencils.


I colored them all a different color then fussy cut each one out. I adhered them to a panel for a slimline card adding the yellow and the orange one with craft foam. 


The sentiment is from the Moving Sentiments Stamp set. I embossed it with white embossing powder on black card stock. I don't have any black craft foam to use for dimension so I used 3 layers of black card stock instead. Worked great!


I adhered the panel to a white slimline card base and this card is done.

I hope you'll play along with us. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone creates. Click on the Three Room Studio image at the beginning of my post for all the details.

FOLK STAR CHRISTMAS IS HERE

 


This is one of my favorite Christmas cards I've made so far. I used the Folk Star Slimline Die to emboss this panel and then turned them into snowflakes. So Simple and so easy to mass produce. 
I used an embossing mat with my die cutting sandwich and ran that through my die cutting machine. It leaves an impression without cutting the card stock which is a great way to increase the usage from your dies. After I embossed it I cut it using the stitched rectangle die from the Postage Stamp Dies to cut the panel then I ink blended some Pink Champagne ink onto it. 
I ran the die through the machine again cutting another piece of card stock and took some of the pieces to adhere to the inked panel to make snowflakes. 
The sentiment is from the Nostalgic Season Stamp set. I embossed it with white onto black card stock and added it to the panel with craft foam then added the panel to the card base with more craft foam.



I think I'll make a few more of these in different colors.

NOSTALGIC RUDOLPH



This cute little reindeer from the new Nostalgic Season Stamp Set is adorable. The whole This Christmas Release from Catherine Pooler Designs is fantastic and it's all available in the shop now which gives you plenty of time to make all your Christmas cards for this year. 
This cute little guy reminds me of Rudolph in the Christmas show that plays every year. There is a stamp for the nose but I decided to cut it from some scrap red glitter paper I had in my stash.


I used the Polka Dot Cover Plate die to cut a panel and left all the 'polka dots' in place. I cut it to fit into the largest frame from the Chalkboard Frame Dies that I cut to frame the scene. I used my scissors to cut the two snow banks from scrap paper. I layered all the pieces together then added them to a white card base with some craft foam. 
I added the deer and the sentiment that I embossed on some scrap red card stock I had. I pulled out some of the clear sequins from the new Nashville Sequin Mix to use as snow and adhered them to the card with some liquid glue. 


I'm playing along with the Happy Little Stampers challenge.

TIS' THE SEASON ORNAMENTS

 


It's release day for Catherine Pooler Designs newest collection. It's called 
This Christmas and it's soooooo cute!! I've been playing with the Nostalgic Bundle and having a blast.


I used the Nostalgic Stamps & Dies and a variety of ink colors to make this card. I started with a panel that I cut using a stitched rectangle from the Postage Stamp Dies and added to a white card base with craft foam.



The ornaments are a two-step stamping image. I started by stamping out 9 of the ornament outlines then used the filler stamps to add color to the inside. I used the coordinating die to cut them all out and added them directly to the panel with liquid glue.
The sentiment is embossed with WOW white embossing powder onto black card stock, fussy cut out and added to the card with more craft foam.


***All the new products will be available for purchase today, September 15th at 9am EST***

Today's card uses the new Garland Border Stamp Set and one of my favorite techniques - ink smooshing. This stamp set set is part of the Nostalgic Season Bundle. The bundles come with a discount but all the products are available individually as well. 


Even though it's a border stamp set that doesn't mean you have to use it for a border on your card. I inked it up with some embossing ink, stamped it all over a piece of water color paper then heat embossed it with some WOW Metallic Platinum Embossing Powder. Once it was heat set I squished the ink pads onto a large stamping block. I used Samba and Eucalyptus. I spritzed them with some water then pressed my paper into it. Once I was happy with the coverage I used my heat gun to dry it.



I used the Red Gold and the Champagne Gold from the Kuretake Starry Nights paint to splatter onto the panel and the card base. I used one of the larger circles from the Circles Dies to cut the panel and then added it to the card base with some craft foam.
The sentiment is from the Holiday Mix Stamp Set - one of my most loved and favorite stamp sets - I heat embossed it with the metallic Platinum Embossing Powder from WOW onto black card stock and adhered it directly to the card.

THIS CHRISTMAS IS GOING TO BE SO CUTE

 


This Christmas is going to be SO CUTE!!!!
Have you been seeing all the sneak peeks Catherine's been sharing for the new release? Seriously Cute!!
I've made SO MANY cards with the Nostalgic Season Bundle and still have so many more ideas. 
If you're a StampNation member you get to order early - Tuesday, September 14th at 9am EST. Not a member? Click HERE to learn more about it. 
Ordering opens for everyone on Wednesday, September 15th at 9am EST. 


I started with the Marquise Slim line Cover Plate Die and a few of the awesome Catherine Pooler Design ink colors. After running it through my die cutting machine I adhered it to a white card base. I used Clay Mask, Polished, Samba, Green Tea, Eucalyptus, Spruce and Hot Tub to add color to some of the pieces and then put them back in. The other ones I left white and then put them back in as well. 



To build the scene I used a circle die and cut a piece of white card stock three times and cut two of them down to be snow. Before adding the snow to the bottom of the circle I blended on some Hot Tub ink for the sky. I stamped out the tree and deer from the Nostalgic Season Stamp Set and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I tucked in the tree then added the deer with some craft foam. I stamped the sentiment with Over Coffee Ink then using a blender pen I added some Samba ink to the word season, sponged a little Over Coffee ink around the edge then added that with craft foam as well.

FRIENDSHIP

Hi Everyone!
I'm over on the Scrap'n Stamp Canada Blog today sharing this card for our Random Act of Cardness challenges over on Facebook.


The Random Acts of Cardness is a daily challenge where the design team has chosen daily word prompts that will hopefully inspire you to create. It doesn't have to be a card. It can be whatever you're working on. Along with the word prompts the Scrap'n Stamp design team shares a post over on the blog to go along with the prompt.

Here are the prompts for September


Hop on over to the Scrap'n Stamp Blog for all the details on how I made this card and more pics.
