For Day 2, we are showcasing the Snowfall Roundabout stamp set that coordinates with the the previously released dies called Circle Frames Die Set and Banner Trio Dies.

To make my circular card, I started by die-cutting the circle scallop on some Centura Pearl 110 lb. card stock.  I positioned this in my Misti and used my powder tool to prep the background.  I stamped the Snowfall Roundabout with some Versamark ink.

Next, I sprinkled some gold embossing powder on the stamped image and used my heating tool to heat-set the image.

Next, I die-cut a pink circle frame to ground the image and adhered this onto the panel with some glue.  I die-cut some pink card stock using one of the dies from the Banner Trio die set.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled the same gold embossing powder then heat-set with my heating tool.  I foam-mounted this piece onto the card for added dimension.

I finished my design by adhering the gold bow that I die-cut using the die from the Bitty Bibs die set.  Here’s another look:

For Day 4, we are showcasing with the Holiday Post stamp set and coordinating dies with the Christmas Roundabout stamp set that coordinates with the Circle Frames die set and the Banner Trio die set.

To make my first project, I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut them out.

The background was ink-blended with Faded Jeans, Black Soot, Seedless Preserves, Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen.  For added texture, I sprayed it with some water and picked up the excess with my paper towel.  

I die-cut the trees from the Forest Scene Builder die set, the snowbanks with the Land Border and Sky Borders die set and adhered onto the colored panel.

My adhered the focal image onto the card and finished my design by adding the sentiment, die-cut using the Holiday Greetings die set on some glittered card stock.  I finished my design by adding the snow using my white Posca paint pen.

For my next project, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white and colored them in with alcohol markers.  I used the Circle Frames die to die-cut the image.

To ground the focal image, I added some red circle frame with some liquid glue.  Next step was to create the shaker well, that I die-cut using a die from my collection.  I used some snowflake sprinkles as my shaker element.

I finished my design by adding the sentiment, die-cut using the Banner Trio die set.

For day 2, we are showcasing the Paw-tumn Newton stamp set and coordinating dies along with the Fall Roundabout Stamp Set (coordinates with the previously released Circle Frames die set) and Heartfelt Wishes stamp set (coordinates with the Trio Banner dies).

 

 

 

 

To make my first card, I cut an A2 size panel of some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I used some painter’s tape to mask off a portion of the card panel.  I used distress oxide inks and foam-blending tools to ink up the background.  I sprayed some water on this panel and picked up the excess with my paper towel.  I adhered this on an A2 size white card base.  I cut two strips of black and white patterned paper and adhered them onto the card.

 

 

I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

 

I die-cut the “table cloth” using a die from my collection and adhered on the card with liquid glue.  I foam-mounted the focal image for added dimension and adhered the rest of the pumpkins and leaves.

 

 

Lastly, I used my white gel pen to draw some lines and dots for added texture.  Here’s another look:

 

 

For my second card, I wanted to create a unique design so I stamped the images twice at an angle using the Fall Roundabout stamp set.  I colored the images using my Spectrum Noir Classique Alcohol Markers.

 

 

For added texture, I die-cut the leaves from the Autumn Leaves die set on some gold vellum.  I adhered them on the card with some liquid glue.

 

 

Lastly, I die-cut the banner strip using one of the dies from the Banner Trio die set.  I stamped the sentiment with some Versamark ink and heat-set with my heating tool.  I foam-mounted this piece on my card for added dimension.
