Happy Monday Everyone. Hope you had a wonderful weekend and were able to get into your craft area and be creative. Nothing relaxes me more (and stresses me more LOL) than creating cards. Today I have two cards to share with you: one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas.
The Thanksgiving card uses the more recent small die of the month set from Spellbinders. I tried to create the lady to look like me - gray hair, but the rest of her really doesn't look like me. I mean I will be presenting some pies at Thanksgiving to my family, but I won't be dressed like this. I'm pretty sure I'll be in jeans! :-) Anyway, here's my card.
I began by creating the lady with all the die cut pieces. To create her dress and apron, I stamped some Old Olive ink onto white CS using the Polka Dot background image. Once everything was die cut, I glued her together complete with the pie. While that dried I stamped the floor image with Memento Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I masked the floor and sponged on some TH Distress Antique Linen ink for the wall. The pumpkins were stamped, colored with Copics and fussy cut. I glued two of them onto the floor and added some foam adhesive to one for dimension. The See You Later was die cut using the same die set from Spellbinders. My kids and their families are all traveling here for Thanksgiving so I created a card like this for each one. I'm so excited to have everyone together here for the holidays!
My second card is a pretty quick and easy card. I've been using the Snowman image quite a lot lately. He's adorable as well as easy to color and fussy cut. I especially like him layered on top of the die cut snowflake from Sizzix.
The snowman was stamped, colored and fussy cut before attaching him to the die cut snowflake. The panel and frame were created using a Fawn Lawn rectangle die set. The Peace and Joy greeting was stamped with black ink and then I added the snowflake and snowman. It looks like his scarf and hat band are orange in the photo, but they are red in real life.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a wonderful week!
