Christmas in July 2020 – Day 22

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 22 of  Christmas in July! Today I’m playing along with the Case this Sketch challenge.

I love embossing folders and decided to use the beautiful Pinecone Plethora by Gemini for my take on the sketch. I embossed some dark blue cardstock and then applied some gilding wax over the embossed image – first time using the wax and I just love the shimmer. Now I want to get the wax in an antique gold, I think that would look lovely for other festive cards!

To complete my card, I added the two strips of silver cardstock and a sentiment by Julie Hickey!

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 20

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 20 of Christmas in July! Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at  CAS Colours and Sketches.

I used the lovely Honey Been Stamps Let it Snow set. I have had this for a couple of years, but I haven’t actually used it before! I don’t know what’s taken me so long – that snowman is such a cutie, isn’t he? I used a Gemini 3D embossing folder for the background and to complete my card, I added a die cut sentiment by Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Flutterby Butterfly

Happy Friyay friends!

Today I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown challenge which has another gorgeous combo – raspberry, lavender, green and kraft.

I used a lot of new supplies – in fact they only arrived this morning! The butterfly die is from Paula Pascual’s new brand, Bright Rosa. I bought the ‘Butterflies Border’ set of 8 dies and couldn’t wait to play with it. After cutting the large image from white cardstock, I used a large die from the set which cuts wings/bases for four butterflies in one go – super quick and easy! I then blended some distress ink (picked raspberry and mowed lawn) and a Gina K ink (lovely lavender) to create my colourful butterfly wings/bases. I added a few splatters of gold paint for that touch of shimmer!

I adhered the butterfly wings/bases to the back to the butterfly border and added a few glitter butterfly bodies that I cut using dies from other butterfly die sets. I then stuck the image to a kraft base that I’d embossed using the Seamless Wave embossing folder from Gemini.

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from Tonic Studios and a few green dots.
