I played with Cosmic Newton stamp set for the challenge.

I die cut a stitched rectangle panel using Bristol cardstock and Simon Says Stamp Sitched Rectangle die. Then I stamped and black heat embossed the images from Cosmic Newton stamp set. I coloured the images and background using Zig Clean Color Brush Pens and water using a brush. Then I blended Black Soot distress ink on the edges of the panel. To add texture, I spattered the panel with water and dabbed the excess off with a clean cloth. Then I spattered some opaque white for stars and Nuvo White Blizzard for sparkle and texture. Once dry, I adhered this panel on a white card base using foam adhesive. Here are some closeups.

Simon Says Snow White!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Gift Tag Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Snow White

Lots of options here, you could add snow to your project or use a lot of white on your creation. We will be looking forward to seeing how you interpret this theme!

We are showcasing Reverse Confetti Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Here is my take on the challenge. I used Reverse Confetti’s Smore Love stamp set to make my card for the challenge.

I stamped and coloured the penguins and the beanies from the stamp set using copic markers. I hand cut the penguins and the beanies out with scissors. I adhered the beanies over the penguins.To add interest, I bushed Wink of Stella clear shimmer on the scarf and beanies. added some glossy accents to the eyes and the pompom of one of the beanie and left them to dry.

I then trimmed a fog cardstock base to 5.25 x 4 inches in size. Added Novo Glimmer paste in the colour of Moonstone to falling snowflake stencil and left the panel to dry. In the meantime, I stamped the banner from Simon Says Stamp Give Thanks stamp set using Maliblue ink and sentiment also from the same stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Once dry, I hand cut the banner out. There is die for it but I don’t have the die. Anyway, I also used Simon Says Stamp Stitiched Slopes and Hills die to die cut some snow mounds. I adhered the snow mounds to the bottom of the fog panel. The first one flush to the panel and sencond using foam adhesive. Then tucked in the penguins and the sentiment on top of the panel. The panel is adhered to the white card base.

I used both the snow as well as the white from the challenge theme to create my card. Hope you like it. So now it’s YOUR turn to take out your crafty supplies and join in!

Its release day at Taylored Expressions!

Yes! All the new release products we have been showcasing for past three days are now available at Taylored Expressions store. Welcome back to the release day post.

I am sharing with you two cards using two new products. These are must have dies in your collection. The first one is called Inside Scallop Rectangle Stacklet.

I used the largest stitched rectangle die from Stitched Rectangle Stacklet to die cut a gold foil cardstock. Then I used the largest of the Inside Scallop Rectangle die to diecut the gold stitched panel. There is two gorgeous detail in this frame.Love it. Great to frame the focal point.

I used Santa image from Santa and Friends stamp set from the previous release as my focal point. I black heat embossed the image and watercoloured it. Then die cut using the coordinating die. I also white heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on Oreo cardstock and trimmed.

For the background, I embossed the Sugar Cube panel using Peaceful Poinsettia embossing folder and lightly sponged Cherry Pop TE ink on the edges. I foam adhered the gold foil stitched inside scallop frame on the embossed panel. Then I adhered the sentiment on the bottom inside using foam adhesive. The Santa bottom die cut is adhered using foam and the Santa head is adhered using a wobbler. I then added some enamel stars from Cherry Pop enamel shapes.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

The second product is also a die called Inside Scallop Circle Stacklet.

 

I have used a similar layout to make my card. I die cut a stitched rectangle panel using the silver foil cardstock and then used the largest Inside Scallop Circle die to die cut a circle on the top centre of the panel to make an inner layering frame for the focal point.

For the background, I used the Nordic Christmas embossing folder and sponged Granny Smith TE dye ink on the edges.I stamped, heat embossed and watercoloured the elf image from Santa and Friends stamped. The image is die cut using the coordinating die. The sentiment from the same stamp set is white heat embossed on Oreo cardstock and trimmed.

The rest of the process is exactly the same as the previous card including the wobble for the head of the elf die cut. The difference is in the colours and shapes of the frame and enamel dots.

Love the wobbler action on both the cards. Makes it so much fun to have an interactive element. All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.
