Technique – die cutting

Featuring die cutting

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 27

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 27 of  Christmas in July! Today I’m playing along with the Case this Sketch challenge.

I decided to use the cute Rudolph from the Ho Ho Ho Deer Circle die by Simon Says Stamp! Can you believe I bought this cutie during last Stamptember but I never got round to using him last Christmas? I paired him with a sentiment from an older Hero Arts stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 26

Happy Sunday all!

Welcome to Day 26 of Christmas in July! Today I’m playing along with the Card Concept challenge which has a wonderful graphic for their Christmas in July inspiration challenge. There is just so much inspiration in one photo – the retro colours, the rustic vibe, the amazing white light and window!

I knew I had to use the fabulous My Monthly Hero kit from October 2019 once again and finally inked up my favourite stamp from the set – isn’t that tree fabulous? I coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os and added a Reverse Confetti frame die, reflecting the window in the inspiration photo.

To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Mama Elephant.

The sentiment is by My Favorite Things.

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 24

Happy Friyay!

Welcome to Day 24 of Christmas in July! I didn’t have much time to craft today so I created a very quick and simple card using the beautiful Christmas Wonderland die by Penny Black. I used a stencilled background I created sometime ago – so grateful I didn’t throw it out when I didn’t use it on a project! The sentiment is from a set by Hero Arts.

I’m entering this into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme is either nature or anything goes.

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 23

Hello All!

Welcome to Day 23 of Christmas in July! Today I’m playing along with one of my favourite challenges – the Color Throwdown challenge. This week’s colour palette (orange, green and yellow) is not a typical festive palette but I made it work using my new Birch Press Design Radiant Ornament die set. I added a layer of holographic card behind the ornament – love the shimmery effect!

Looking at the card now, I think I may have gone a bit overboard with the green distress inks!

To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Simon Says Stamp.

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!
