For Day 3, we are showcasing with the Snowman Roundabout stamp set that also coordinates with the previously released Circle Frames die set and Banner Trio dies.

I decided to make a Christmas tag today.  To begin, I used the scallop from the Circle Frames die set and die-cut with some Neenah solar white 110 lb. card stock.  I positioned this panel inside my Misti and stamped the image using the stamp set.

I used my alcohol markers to color the images in.  Lately, I have been using a lot of traditional Christmas colors on my cards so I decided to change my theme this month and use pastel colors.

The sentiment strip was die-cut using the Banner Trio Frame and embossed with some embossing powder.  I foam-mounted this onto the panel for added dimension.

To finish my tag, I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole and inserted some silk ribbon.  I also used the black & white twine with some gold jingle bell for some contrast and added some Startdust Stickles to finishthe tag.  Here’s another look:

For the first day of the reveals we are starting with a HUGE bang and showcasing the Birthday Roundabout and Floral Roundabout stamp sets with the new Circle Frame dies and Banner Trio dies.

 

For my first card, I stamped the image on some Neenah solar white card stock and use the stitched circle frame from the new Circle Frame dies to die cut them out.  I used another circle frame from my collection to die-cut some black card stock.  I also die-cut the scallop circle from the new die set and layered these three pieces together.

 

I wanted to create a super cheerful project so I decided to make a shaker card.  I die-cut a rectangle frame from my die collection and adhered some acetate sheet.  I adhered some foam adhesive to create my well and added the Sweet Shoppe Sprinkles as my shaker element.   I closed the shaker with some yellow patterned paper and adhered this on an A2 size card base.

 

 

I added my focal image in the middle of the card using some strong double-sided tape.

 

I finished my design by stamping the sentiment on the banner using the Trio banner die with some versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I adhered this in the middle of the card with some liquid glue.

 

 

I’m loving this super fun birthday card.

 

 

For my second card, I stamped the image halfway at the top and bottom on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I wanted to keep the coloring simple and decided to just use two colors of markers.

 

 

 

I used the circle die from the Circle frames die set to mask the colored images.  I pressed the word lipstick and mowed lawn stamp pads on my acrylic block and added a few drops of water to dilute the color.  I then used my watercolor brush to add some speckles on my card for added texture and set it aside to dry.

 

 

I used one of the dies from the Banner Trio die set and die-cut the piece with some black card stock.  I stamped the sentiment with some Versamark ink.   I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set using my heating tool.

 

Lastly, I added some sparkling clear jewels to finish the design.
