Simon Says Monday Challenge “Shine Bright Like A Diamond” #4 & Hero Arts Holiday Challenge

I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean & Chipped Sapphire for the background.  The tree is a stencil by Hero Arts and I used embossing paste with light blue glitter added to it.  I also mixed Radiant Pearls with water and tapped some drops on to the background.

Simon Says Monday Challenge “Shine Bright Like A Diamond”

I was busy getting ready for Christmas this weekend.  I have a LOT of cards to make and need to get with it!  The die on this card is by Simon Says Stamp and the embossing folder is by Taylor Expressions.  I used the die on Neenah White paper and traced a circle die and cut out the glitter paper (all my circle dies were to big or too small but the outline of one was almost perfect).  I glued the die cut on with Ranger Multi Medium Matte onto the glitter paper and used foam tape to attach it and the embossed layer.  I used metallic floss and attached it to the top of the ornament and adhered it to the back.

Simon Says Monday Challenge “Halloween” #2

Here is my next Halloween design.  The embossing folder is by Tim Holtz and the dies are by Hero Arts.  I sponged some rust colored ink around the edges of the pumpkin (I think I will do it around the lettering too when I make more) and added some dash lines with a fine point black marker.  I added googly eyes to the pumpkin and some ribbon to the card.

Simon Says Challenge “Stamp It” #4

I loved these Crazy Cats by Tim Holtz when they came out and couldn’t wait for the mini set to be released.  When it came out with the cats and dogs together as minis I was even happier!  I stamped the cats and colored them with Prismacolor markers.  The “Happy Meowday” is by Simon Says Stamp.  I die cut two rectangle frames and fit them around the cats and cut out the overlapping sections (I made a sample for reference for the future).  I added Wink of Stella to the cats and also Crystal Effects to their eyes.

Simon Says Challenge “Stamp It” #2

I couldn’t make just one card so I kept going and made additional Snoopy cards!  The stamp is by Stampabilities.  I masked it off and used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire.  The circle die is by Sizzix and the embossing folder is by Marianne.  I also added Crystal Effects to Snoopy.
