Geometric Christmas Card

Hi everybody,

When I think of geometric, besides the geometric shapes like circle, square, triangles ..etc I think of graph paper.  For the current A Blog Named Hero challenge - Geometric card, I used the Hero Arts Canvas Strip stamp with the help of my MISTI I create a plaid pattern panel with Barn Door and Peeled Paint distress ink.

Then I die cut using MFT stitched square scallop die and adhere onto brick red pattern paper panel.  Next I white heat embossed holly leaves (from Hero Arts Coffee Cup Tags clear set) and sentiment (from Hero Arts Winter Cheer Tag Set by Lia), and added a pretty geometric looking Christmas tree - stamp in Peeled Paint (from Hero Arts 3D House Essentials clear set).  And the whole panel goes onto a white card base.

I am linking up these challenges:

Hero Arts Paper Layering Heart duet

Happy Saturday everybody,

I am sharing a "layered" card today on the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies Blog.  This card feature the Hero Arts Paper Layering Heart Die.  Instead of layering with stamps, I layered up with some dies and used double sided patterned paper.

I think it turned out nicely.  And it's not all that complicated to do.  Check my a2z blog post for the details.

But wait I am not done yet!  :D  While I have my supplies out, I want to make something else with the same layering die.  And here's what I came up with, a gift box topper.  I happen to have a heart shape gift box and my topper fit just perfectly!

Here's a mini tutorial of the simple steps to make the topper:

  1. fold pattern paper and place die on top aligning the edge at the fold line.
  2. pass thru the die cut machine
  3. use scissors to trim out the die (top and bottom)
  4. open the die
  5. lift up the alternate layers and glue together, at a different location each layer
  6. glue on top of gift box

I hope I've inspired you to come join in a2z October's Challenge - Layer It, the dead line Oct 31st.  So there is still lots of time to play along.  Remember you could use my promote code Cindy15 when you shop at the a2z store.

Hidden Fairy

Happy Monday,

I am sharing a card today on Die Cut Diva's, the image I used is called Hidden Fairy by The Stamping Boutique.

I colored the image with Copic Markers.  Then I die cut it with the Stitched Sq Scallop Frame.  I adhere all pieces except the frame onto card front.  Heat embossed the sentiment in Gold.  I die cut a second piece of the frame and glue both frames together to give a tiny bit more height.  Then I heat embossed the frame in Gold before I adhere onto the card.

Come join in the challenge - Time to Emboss, you could find the details on the Die Cut Diva's Challenge Blog here.

Candy Canes

Welcome back to my blog.

I am sharing a card created for the Die Cut Diva's challenge blog, our October theme is Embossing.

The digital image I used is called Candy Cane Corner by The Stamping Boutique.  I copied and pasted the image twice on a file, used my image editor to manipulate it so that one of them is facing the other direction.  I first colored them with coloring pencils, then stamp and heat emboss the surrounding area.  I trimmed it slightly smaller to fit my card base.  Then I stamped, heat embossed, and die cut the sentiment and adhered to card.
