Pretty Pink Posh – Birdies in Stocking

header

Hello friends! Today I am sharing my last card for Pretty Pink Posh this year. I am very into drawing lately so I figured why not combine drawing with stamping?! To start, I picked something relatively easy to draw i.e. Christmas stocking and I stuffed some birdies into it  🙂

Here is a close-up of my card. Please head over to the Pretty Pink Posh blog for more details!

Caring Hearts Blog Hop 2016

caring-hearts

Hello friends! Welcome to the Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop! Our purpose is to collect handmade holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes around the world. Since 2010, we have been spreading holiday cheer to many nursing homes throughout the US, Canada and Australia, and this year, we are branching out to the UK!

It truly makes me happy that I can bring a little joy to folks by doing my favorite thing – making cards! My grandfather used to live in a nursing home before he passed away. So, I have special feelings about nursing home and the elderly who live there. We really hope you will join us in supporting this meaningful cause! For those of you who wants to participate, we have prepared a lot of prizes for many winners. All you have to do is send us your handmade cards with a message inside. For details of entry and prizes, please refer to Vera Yates’ Blog and Jennifer McGuire’s Blog.

OK! Now, let’s move onto my card! I used the Die-namics Gift Box Cover-Up to frame the snowflakes, just like looking at the snow outside the window. I can’t seem to steer away from the warm color scheme 😛

Here is how I made my card:

  1. Die cut a piece of watercolor paper with the Die-namics Gift Box Cover-Up. Use masking tape to mask the lower half of the panel, blend Festive Berries on the top part. Do the same to the bottom part with Wild Honey
  2. On another piece of watercolor paper, blend the same inks as background
  3. Stamp the snowflakes with MFT hybrid inks (Red Hot, Pineapple, Latte). Die cut out with Die-namics Simply Snowflakes. Stamp some small snowflakes with hybrid inks (Paver Red, Orange Zest)
  4. White heat emboss the sentiment on black card stock
  5. Mount everything as shown in place with foam tape. Add water droplets. Embellish with some PPP sequins (4mm Lavender Moon, 4mm Clear Droplets, 4mm Strawberry Burst, 4mm Sunshine Glow, 6mm Metallic Rose Gold). Again, I used a lot of colored sequins :))

My Favorite Things – Simply Snowflakes

blog-header-2-3

Hello friends! I am popping in today to share a non-traditional holiday card. If you know me, you know I love non-traditional colors! My favorite colors are red, orange and yellow 🙂

mft-simply-snowflakes-5-3

mft-simply-snowflakes-4

  1. On watercolor paper, white heat emboss some snowflakes from Simply Snowflakes Stamp Set
  2. Blend various colors of distress inks (Spun Sugar, Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade). Add water and more ink with a wet paint brush. I also added some shadows to make the snowflakes pop. Let dry and add white watercolor splatters and Perfect Pearl solution. Die cut the whole panel with Die-namics Blueprints 25
  3. Die cut the sentiment with Die-namics Merry Christmas from Gold Glitter Card Stock. Adhere it with glue. Embellish with some PPP sequins (Clear Sparkling, 4mm Pink Peonies, 6mm Lavender Moon) to finish. I am addicted to using both clear and colored sequins! I like how the colored sequins further bring out the colors on my card!
