Dashing Deer with Beautiful Blizzard


Today's card is another created using the Dashing Deer bundle :o) Can you tell that I love these products? :o)

This time I teamed it with Beautiful Blizzard. I just used the multi-Snowflake image to create the background panel. I stamped this with Versamark ink and heat embossed using Gold Powder.


No sentiment for this card, but I think it's obviously a Christmas card :o) I really love this deer image and was very pleasantly surprised that all the beautiful design on its body showed up so well even after heat embossing it. Sometimes you lose some of the detail when embossing. 

I used the Subtle Dynamic embossing folder on the Navy Oval panel behind the deer, just to add a little more texture.

Warm Hearted with Buffalo Check


Warm Hearted is one of the new Hostess stamp sets available in the Autumn / Winter catalogue. It's a great set, suitable for several different occasions. Hostess sets are only available to buy with Hostess Rewards. These are earned when you place an order of £150 or more - either a personal order or a 'Party' order where you are the Hostess. 

I paired it with the Buffalo Check background stamp for this card. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the background. I find this makes it much easier to get the image straight on the cardstock. If you stamp it on a bigger piece of card than you actually need, you can cut it down to size afterwards and if you did stamp it slightly wonky, you can compensate for that when you trim it down :o)


Once the background was stamped in Crumb Cake ink I took my Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Marker and drew lines through the rows of light checks. 

I used the Sprig punch for the foliage pieces around the sentiment.

Beautiful Blizzard with Blizzard Thinlits Die - Video Tutorial


Hi There :o)

I have been playing with the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set and it's coordinating Blizzard Thinlits Die. I created THIS card a few weeks ago using some of the snowflakes from the die but wanted to create another card using the complete panel of snowflakes .... well, I finally got a chance to do so :o)

This large, single die measures 10.1cm x 12.6cm (4" x 5"). This makes it a bit of an awkward size to fit on the front of our standard card base here in the UK. However, it really didn't need a lot of thought to get it to work! As you can see, these cards look great ... and they were very quick to complete.


I have created a Video showing you how I made these cards, you can find it below ...

These two cards use the same colours (Blueberry Bushel and Balmy Blue), just in reverse - although I kept the Blueberry Bushel ink for the sentiment on both.

My original card (top pic) used Pool Party and Night of Navy.


This is the card I created in the video. I really like these two blues together .... and of course, the Silver Foil always looks fabulous with any blue :o)


If you would like to see how I created this card .... here is the Video ...


Measurements

Balmy Blue card base                                        ½ an A4 standard sheet of card

You will also need some more Whisper White and Balmy Blue card for the sentiment panel.
