Today's the day!!!
The It's All About Christmas Release is in the SHOP! And it's AH-mazing!!!
There's something for everyone - 5 different bundles - and everything is available
individually as well.
beginning with this release for orders over $35 Catherine has a FREE gift for you
(while supplies last).
I've got two cards to share with you today that use products from The Man With The Bag Bundle and I've paired them with lots of other Catherine's products which I've linked to for you below.
My first card uses the Making Spirits Bright Stamp Set. This set has great sentiments paired with beautiful and fun fonts plus a sentiment that's perfect for making tags.
I started by cutting a panel from white cardstock with the large stitched edge die from the Postage Stamp Dies. I placed the Harleen stencil on an angle and spread on some embossing paste. I removed the stencil and set the panel aside to dry.
While the panel was drying I blended some Lemongrass, Daydream, Queen For A day, Juniper Mist and a little Midnight inks onto another piece of white cardstock. Yes I could have just sponged it with a dark ink but when you see it in person you see hints of the other colors in it. It's really quite cool. Once it dried I cut it out with the tag die from the Tags Etc die set. Next I embossed the sentiment and the snow flakes from the Making Spirits Bright Stamp Set with white embossing powder and then using stars and hearts from other sets I did some more embossing in white and Singing In The Rain embossing powders. I layered them with craft foam for dimension onto a white card base.
I had Dick Van Dyke in mind when I made this next card. Jolly Holiday is a song from the Mary Poppins movie that has been stuck in my head for weeks! And of course I keep saying it mimicking his ridiculous accent lol.
This card came together really quickly. I used the Jolly word die and cut one word from Midnight card stock and one from white. The white one I covered with versamark ink and then heat set it with some gorgeous Peppermint Scrub embossing powder. It's got little gold chunks in it and it looks so pretty when it's all melted. It's part of the Bundle Up Embossing Trio. I layered them together offsetting them just a bit so as to give a shadow. The rest of the sentiment is from the Holiday Mix Stamp set. I embossed them with white onto Midnight card stock and layered them and the Jolly onto a piece of white card stock that I cut with the large stitched die from the Postage Stamp Die set - I use that one A LOT! Next I cut some trees from white card stock using the tree dies from the Winterhaven Die set and adhered them to the panel. I layered the panel onto a piece of Midnight card stock and then added that piece to a card base with some craft foam.
Are you singing the song now?
