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 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 the Knight Owl and Pug-kin Stamp Sets with the coordinating dies.

 

To make my first card, I cut an A2 size panel of some Neenah solar white card stock and used the circle dies from the Circle Frames die set to cut the three windows.   I used my pencil to draw the circles on another A2 size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock.  I inked up the circles with some distress oxide inks and erased my pencil lines using a pencil eraser.

 

The Neenah white panel was foam-mounted on the colored background for added dimension.   I stamped my focal image and color it in with my alcohol markers.  I adhered this onto the card with liquid glue.

 

 

My scene was created by adding the grass panel die-cut from the same circle dies I used earlier and the Land borders die.  I adhered this onto the card with glue.

 

 

The bats and “TRICK OR TREAT” were die-cut using the dies from the Halloween Trio die set.   I adhered them onto the card with some liquid glue.

 

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen to draw some dots to the sky to make them look like stars.  Here’s another look:

 

 

For my second card, I die-cut the circle from the Circle Frames die set on some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I ink-blended this piece with some distress oxide inks.   I used the same circle die and the Land Border die to die-cut the grass.

 

 

The background was created by using the Spiderweb stencil and some light gray dye ink.  I cut this panel to 4 1/4 by 5 1/4 and adhered on an A2 size panel, that was colored with the Houndstooth stencil.   I die-cut some black strip and adhered onto the card with liquid glue.  I also die-cut some black party streamers  using a die from my collection and the bats using the Halloween Trio die set.

 

 

I stamped the image and used alcohol markers to color it in.  I used the coordinating die to die-cut the image and adhered on the circle.  I foam-mounted this piece on my card for added dimension.  Here’s another lookK

The black scallop frame was die-cut from the Frames & Flags die-set and foam-mounted to the colored panel for added dimension.  I die-cut the picket fence using the Fence Die setand adhered on the card with some liquid glue.  The moon was die-cut using the Circle Frames die set.

 

I foam-mounted the focal image on the card for added dimension.  I adhered the rest of the images with liquid glue.

To finish my design, I used the Spiderweb stencil with some white pigment ink and mini-sponge dauber to add the spiderweb.  I stamped the sentiment with some Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder.  I used my heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.  Here’s another look:

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.
