Die'Sire Prestige Dies Release

Hi! A new line of stunning dies are coming out from Crafter's Companion! They are here, just in time to get those holiday cards started! The line is from Die'Sire and it's the Prestige Christmas Only Words! I was lucky enough to get to work with this lovely Joy die.

I die cut it twice; once out of the Kraft base and once out of white cardstock.  Then I added a little Mowed Lawn Distress Ink before piecing it all together.  I love the pops of red that show up in the back!

This card was pretty simple to create, but I really think the results are stunning! I am getting a huge jump start on my holiday cards this year! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by!

Die'Sire Edge'Ables Release!

Hi!!! I wanted to share a card I created with the recently release Die'Sire Edge'Ables dies.  These dies are FABULOUS! I used the Christmas Fancy Borders Collection (this is the Fancy Bow die).

How fun, right? I die cut it twice, once on each side, so it would open up like a window.

I used some Shimmering Cardstock (Candy Red and Forest Green) to give this some extra shimmer.

I stamped the image from Sheena's A Little Bit Festive: Christmas Cocoa in Distress Ink: Scattered Straw, then colored it in with Spectrum Aquas (Yellow, Terracotta, Crimson, Aquamarine, Chestnut, Scarlet, Evergreen, Slate, Teal) to create a watercolor look.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Sweet {Anniversary} New Release

It's that time! Sweet Stamp Shop New Release Day!!!! And.. this month is extra special!!! There is a super duper awesome bundle on sale (while supplies last) in honor of the Sweet Anniversary! Say what?! Yep!!!! Hurry up and order before they are all gone!

How much fun are these new release sets?!?!? Honestly.  When I first saw them, I squealed and then laughed.  Then I squealed again.  As usual, I can't decide which set is my favorite because they are all fun and fabulous!

So, my kiddo is always telling me knock, knock jokes, which means this set cracked me up.  Hers don't make much sense (she's almost 6, so she doesn't quite get how it works yet), but I read her the sentiment on this Knock Knock set and she couldn't stop laughing! I thought it would be fun to die cut a word bubble and use the die and the negative to differentiate who was telling the joke.  

And using the same set, I had to follow it up with the Kale-ing me card.  Because, for real, it was killing (kaleing) me! I heat embossed the image and then colored it in with watercolor markers.  If you like this look, I'll have a post up on the Sweet Blog soon, sharing exactly how to achieve this effect!

Oh, and don't forget to follow Sweet on Facebook! There are always extras shared there (inspiration, tutorials, giveaways, etc.)!

Thanks for stopping by!
