Poinsettias to start the Holiday Season

I always start my Christmas cards early, so I have more time to do everything else (shopping, cooking, baking, etc) after! So today is my first Christmas card of the season that I would like to share with you!

I used the beautiful dies called Poinsettia and the matching stamp set “Poinsettia Petals”. I used Old Olive as my card base color combine with a strip of the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series paper outlined by Real Red card stock. The flowers are made with Real Red and Whisper White cardstock, and I also used the Red foil sheet for a little sparkle!

Material:

Stamp set: Poinsettia Petals

CS and paper: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White, Mossy Meadow, Gingerbread and Peppermint DSP, Red Foil.

Ink: Old Olive

Tools: Pointsettia Dies

Other: Pearls

Seasonal Swirls Grateful Card

Here’s another card that I made with the new Seasonal Swirls dies. It’s a little late for Thanksgiving in Canada, but not if you are in the United States! In the background, I used the beautiful designer series paper “In Good Taste”. To create the wreath, I used Crushed Curry and Garden Green card stock with the Seasonal Swirl die, plus cut some extra leaves in Early Espresso and Soft Suede card stock. I also added the cute little pumpkins to complete it!

Material:

Stamp set: Sparkle of the Season

CS and paper: Soft Suede, In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, Garden Green, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso

Ink: Soft Suede

Tools: Seasonal Swirls dies

Other: Linen thread

Happy Halloween!

I have to admit that I don’t really give cards at Halloween, but I just got my hands on the new “Sparkle of the Season” bundle and Seasonal Swirls dies, which include a cute pumpkin and bats, plus an adorable witch broom, so I couldn’t resist to make a Halloween card with it!

I started by sponging the card with Tempting Turquoise where I wanted to put the “moon”, to create a lighter halo around it. Then I sponged Blueberry Blushel all around. I added some “stars” using my white gel pen. The moon is a 2.5 inches circle cut off Daffodil Delight card stock. The bats, stars, pumpkin and broom are all cut with the Seasonal Swirls dies. The label is from the Potted Succulents dies.

Material:

Stamp set: Sparkle of the season

CS and paper: Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Whisper white, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake

Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Blueberry Bushel, Memento Black, Signo White gel pen

Tools: Seasonal Swirls dies, sponge daubers, 2.5 in circle punch, Potted Succulents dies

Quiet Meadow sunset

I created this card for my daughter’s birthday, with the beautiful Meadow dies! (Item 155852) These dies also come with a matching stamp set, so you can get the bundle and save 10%! I really love those delicate flowers! And as a bonus you also get a very nice label die and 2 small butterflies!

I wanted to create a sunset using purple and pink since my daughter loves those colors, so instead of going with the traditionnal yellow and orange sunset, I used different colors: Soft Sky, Blushing Bride, Highland Heater and Rich Razzleberry. I was quite happy with the result!

Material:

CS and paper: Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper white

Ink: Soft Sky, Blushing Bride, Highland Heater and Rich Razzleberry

Tools: Meadow dies, sponge daubers, 1-14 circle punch (to create mask)

Butterfly Brilliance Stamps and Dies

I’ve fallen in love with the new Butterfly Brilliance Stamp set and Brilliant Wings Dies! So beautiful and detailed!

This is one of the first card that I did playing with this new bundle! I first stamped the butterflies in Smoky Slate ink to create the background. Then, I stamped the biggest butterfly on a different piece of Whisper White card stock and colored it with my Stampin’ markers and Blends. I tried to color it as close as possible to the Anise Swallowtail.

The tag is from a new die set called Meadow Dies, that is propably my favorite new die set in the 2021-2022 Catalogue! Make sure to come back to my blog to see some cards done with this new bundle!

Stamp set: Butterfly Brilliance Stamp set
