Good morning to Ewe!
Today, I’m jumping ahead to 2017, with this fun little set from the December Reveal, Will Ewe be Mine Set 813, to wish the recipient a Happy Valentine’s Day.
I knew right away that I wanted these little lambs to be fluffy, and what better way to do that than with some fun Snow White flocking! Did you know you can color your flocking? Just dab a Copic marker using the side of the nib and the color transfers nicely on to the flocking. If you are doing larger areas – you can use a dauber. I used the marker for the inside of the little lambs’ ears.
So to begin, I stuck a piece of 2 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape to a piece of white cardstock. I took off the protective backing and added the Snow White Flocking to the sticky surface and burnished it in well with my finger tool. Once I was happy with the coverage, I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black directly on top of the flocking. I then stamped the image on black cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed with White Detail.
After coloring in the lambs’ ears, I fussy cut the two white lambs on the left and right so that I could pop them up along side the little black sheep.
The white sheep were then adhered on top of the black version and I used a needle with silver thread to make the heart rope, before adding all the little hearts to the image.
Dimensional Glue was used to add the googly eyes. The red background was die cut with Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Scallop Rectangles before being embossed with the Darice Hearts embossing folder. This was then layered over the image then layered on white cardstock.
The sentiment was stamped on red cardstock in Versamark and then heat embossed with Black Detail, this was also cut out using one of the smaller Lifestyle Crafts Rectangles. A piece of red and white gingham ribbon was attached to the back of the sentiment and this was popped up with Foam Squares at the base of the card.
The ribbon was attached to the back of the card front before being layered to the black card base to finish.
I hope “ewe’ve” enjoyed my share today!
Till next time,
Hi there, and a very Happy Thanksgiving to all,
Designer Shona here today to share my last November Reveal card using the Stella –Dear Santa Set 804. What a fun little “Stella” set for Christmas!
I started with the background, using the Spellbinders Ripples Embossing Folder – I ran red cardstock through the embossing folder and then daubed Pure Platinum embellishment mouse to the piece to accentuate the pattern (which kind of reminded me of baubles).
I built her wall with the Darice Brick Pattern embossing folder using watercolor paper (which had the texture already), then I daubed Cosmic Brown embellishment mousse over the bricks and “grouted” with the E25 Copic Marker.
The wall was layered to the red rippled background. Santa Stella was then stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics, R37, C3, C5, B32, E02, E25, and 0. She was then fussy cut, along with the baubles. I added some Dimensional Glue to all of the white trim around her hat, cuffs and skirt and applied Twinkling Clouds. This was set aside to dry.
Adding a little of the Nuvo Fine Tipped Glue Pen to the top of the baubles and applied Reflection Velvet Glitter. When this was dry, I covered the colored part of the baubles with Dimensional Glue and they were set aside to dry.
Dimensional Glue was also applied to her glasses and the new Nuvo Ruby Slipper Glitter drops were used for a sparkly red pair of earrings. I cut a slit in the scroll, so that the scroll would go behind the wall. Stella was then attached with Foam Squares. A piece of silver thread was tied with three little bows and then the shiny baubles were stuck down with glue dots and Foam Squares.
That finished off my card for today. Hope you’ve enjoyed my share today and that you’ve had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
To start my card I used the new glimmer paste to create background papers. Using the Emerald Green on green cardstock, Moonstone on white cardstock and Garnet Red along with a stencil on white cardstock the layers for my card were created and allowed to dry overnight. These glimmer paste are so beautiful and can be used in some many different ways. I just love how beautiful they are using a stencil.
The poinsettia were stamped onto the cardstock (sorry I forgot to take a picture) and stamped a second time fussy cut out and used as a mask. The lantern was then stamped on top of the poinsettia mask.
The lantern was colored using copic markers. To create the look of glass on the lantern dimensional glue was added to the glass panes and allowed to dry. Dimensional glue dries clear looking like glass. Evening Glow, Waterfall, Golden Silver, Sassy Silver and Sparkling Snow glitter was used on the candle.
The poinsettia were colored using copic markers and Honey Gold Crystal Drops were applied to the centers. To applied the Gliding Flakes to the edges of the panels I used the large Nuvo Glue Pen. I placed 3 small dots on the top corner using a green maker and then placed drops of Morning Dew Crystal Drops on top. Using a marker with the clear drops really make for pretty embellishments.
A stencil was placed on top of the white cardstock, and Garnet Red Glimmer Paste was applied using a palette knife. I hope you can see all the beautiful shimmer of this paste, it is gorgeous.
Using the glimmer paste on the cardstock created beautiful shimmery paper and layers for my festive card.
I hope you have enjoyed my card as much as I did making it!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, see you soon!
Hi! It’s Eret here. Today I show you a card made with new Elephant Christmas Tree Digital Stamp Set 802.
Best part about digital stamps is that you can make them as big or small you need. I sized my elephant to fit behind the window. Image is colored with markers. I added a layer of glue with Sakura Glue Pen to his hat trim and covered it with Crystal Ice glitter. Same glue was added to the ornaments on the tree. Stars was covered with Aztec Gold glitter and some parts of the bigger baubles with Crystal Ice glitter. All Tree Ornaments was covered after glittering with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to give them a glass effect.
To make the window frame I used a piece of white textured cardstock and cut a square holes with one of the dies from Nellie Snellen Photo Frames set. Top part of the window is partially cut with largest die from Spellbinders Labels Thirty-Six set. I covered window frame with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. Apparently some speckles of Gray Nuance water-soluble powder was picked up in that process… I like it! Happy accident. Speckles of gray in crackled frame looks very nice. Behind the frame I adhered a piece of Acetate. To make it look like it has been snowed, I added Dimensional Glue to different places on the window and sprinkled Bridal glitter on top.
I found this glittered poinsettia flower and Holly branch from my leftover basket. To make them I covered piece of paper with 2 1/2″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Branch is cut with Creative Expressions Holly Sprays die and flower with same company die – Classic Poinsettia. Branches are covered with Lator Gator and flower with Gypsy Red glitters. Same red glitter was adhered with Dimensional Glue to the branches. Flower center was made with Dimensional Glue and Aztec Gold glitter.
Background was so much fun to make. I took a piece of watercolor cardstock, placed Want2Scrap Bricks Stencil on top and used White Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to make the brick pattern. After removing the stencil I covered embossing paste with Bronze Rose Embossing Powder. I let the paste dry and used the heat tool to melt the embossing powder. Apparently the paste wasn’t completely dry, it started to bubble up in some places. I’m ok with it. Actually it gives more texture to the bricks. Space between the bricks was colored with Gray Nuance water-soluble powder. The wall was made before the window. Next time I try to remember to clean up the craft mat a bit better after using Nuance powders 🙂

I then stamped the flower part of the cart on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black.
When the glue was dry, Orange Crush and Sunny Daze were added to the orange and yellow flowers with the Sakura Glue Pen. Black cardstock was run through Spotted Flowers embossing folder by Crafts Concepts. I applied the Green Apple, Dandelion Yellow and Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Crystal Drops to the little wells, as shown.
When the drops were dry, I tore around the image and attached it with Foam Squares. I then centered this to a piece of white card base, edged with 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape, after removing the protective backing and burnished in Sun Dazzle Sparkle Sparkle N Soft to the exposed adhesive.
The flowers were then popped up on top of the white image with Foam Squares.
Depending on how you look at this card with the torn edges, it looks like the image is actually sunken in, instead of being popped up as in reality:
Hope you’ve enjoyed my share today.
Till next time,
I matched my dancing giraffe with a saying from the Spring Time Spunky set, added a fuzzy giraffe background and some purple tulle for a totally different look.
I began with the background. Taking a piece of yellow cardstock, I applied a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of Super Adhesive Sheet. After removing the protective backing I applied Mimosa Sparkle N Soft. Then I applied Memento Rich Cocoa ink to the raised patches on the inside of the Darice Giraffe embossing folder and ran the top half of the fuzzy cardstock through the embossing machine, then reinked the patches and ran the bottom half through.
Dimensional Glue was then applied to the hooves. This was then set aside to dry.
I stamped the sentiment in Versamark on white glossy cardstock and heat embossed with Sienna. The Tuscany EP‘s are my go to detail embossing powders, which I use a lot on sentiments. The saying was cut up as shown to be attached to the card with foam squares. When the glues were dry, I added the velvet glitters, Hyacinth, Orchid Rose and Ballerina, to the scarf, using the glue pen – Milton becomes Mildred!!
Spellbinders Mega Ovals Large was used to cut out the giraffe and before removing the die I sponged some Memento Cantaloupe ink around the image.
The background was layered to a piece of mustard cardstock, edged with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, before being layered to a white card base. I then attached a piece of purple tulle to the back of the image before attaching both the cut up sentiment and image with foam squares as shown.
That finishes my project for today. Hope I’ve inspired you to try out some of the Sparkle N Softs.
