Hey everyone! Did you see Jani’s card yesterday (and the file that was in it) if you didn’t you should really go check it out!

So I am continuing with my breaking of the using digital files thing for the month, I am so in love with this stamp set that I am still using it! So again this is using the Snow Day stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. So I stamped 2 of the cute bunnies and coloured them with copics (W00, W01, W03, W05, W07, R20, R22), and the little bird (R22, R24, R27, R29). I then stamped the trees using Soft Leaf ink from Hero Arts, and Olive ink from Creative Memories, and the bow is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

The background for my little scene is on Canson watercolour paper, painted with Peerless Watercolors. I then splattered it with Heidi Swapp Gold Lame ink and put it on a patterned paper stash from my Simon Says Stamp card kit patterned paper stash (in otherwords I can not remember who this paper came from lol), put it on a grey card base and called it finished,

Snowflake Window Cards by Jani Lewis

snowflake-cutout-card--01

Hello, My name  is Jani and I love snowflakes and making my own cut files. I have a couple of easy Snowflake Window Cards with with svg files that I made.

Let me show you how they go together and then you can find the link to download the cut files at the bottom of the post.

For the first card…

The file for the 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inch card base is included but you could also just cut it yourself.

The card top has a snowflake cut.  I placed it directly to the card base. You could also pop it up using foam squares.

All the pieces were cut from Neenah 110 pound cardstock. I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays to color them. I list the colors in the video below.

The card top shimmers but unfortunatelysnowflake-cutout-card--21 it does not show up well in pictures.

I stacked the snowflakes over the cutout area in this order.

snowflake order card 1 snowflake-cutout-card-2I added a little bling.

For the second card…

Both the card base and card top have snowflake shapes cut out to make a nice window.

I did the snowflakes a little differently on this one.

snowflake-cutout-card-22I added some Stickles and a gem in the center.

Here is a look at the finished cards.

Simple trees

Hey everyone! Jess here again using the same stamp and die set as yesterday, the Snow Day set from Lawn Fawn,  This card I kept rather simple stamping the tree outline and colouring them in with my Copic’s, G111, G14, G17, and G28, then cut them out with the coordinating die.

I then wrapped some May Arts twine around the white panel and stamped my sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black Ink, and attached my trees with foam tape. Then finished off the twine by tying it in a bow over top.

I dug in my Scraptastic Life Noted card stash and found this fun triangle one and cut it down to fit behind the white panel. Noticing that it looked rather plain on the Neenah Solar white card base I took out my most used and loved stencil (Tim Holtz Spatter stencil) masked off the areas I didn’t want to use and then used distress ink in Peacock Feathers, and picked raspberries through the stencil to create a lovely backround. Attatched my focal panel on some foam tape and it was complete.

Bunny Christmas

DSC_0107

 

Good morning everyone! Did you check out Annette’s card yesterday! I really loves the traditional colours she used! If you didn’t you should go back and check out her post!

So confession time, I went to put today’s card up this morning, because yesterday got away from me. Attempted to pull the photo’s off of the memory card, and well the card is fouled and I can not get anything off of it. Would normally not be a big deal, but I live 20 minutes out of the city, and nothing is open at 6:30 am on a statutory holiday where I can purchase a card. So today and tomorrows card, unfortunately will not be using my cameo. They are cards I had photographed and already pulled off for a couple posts in November. Plus note, you get to see them now!

So this card was made using the Lawn Fawn Snow Day Stamps and Dies, as well as the Lawn Fawn Trim the Tree Stamps and dies. I stamped the two bunnies that face eachother and coloured them with my copics W00, w01, w03, w05,w07, R22, and R20. I also stamped a row of lights and the bell from the Trim the tree set and coloured them with Y11, Y13, and Y15, Using the coordinating dies I cut them all out.

I then cut a piece of Neenah white with the row of trees in the Snow Day set and pieced it back together creating a back panel for my bunnies to rest on.  The sentiment is stamped with Versa Fine Onyx Black ink and then a piece of May arts Twine is tied in a bow underneath it. All the patterened paper is scraps from my scrap bin, I know the triangle paper is from Simon Says Stamps christmas card kit last year (I can not remember who the manufacturer was) and the other paper I do not even have a guess but its just a simple grey paper with a white dot pattern.

Christmas music..

Hey everyone, I cant believe we are already on day 8 of the Christmas card marathon here on my blog! If you didn’t see Lori’s card yesterday you should go back and check it out, it was lovely.

 

So here is the card I have for you today, seriously not my favorite, but they can’t all be something I love. So for today’s card I stamped the Tim Holtz season’s greetings sentiment and embossed it with Hero Arts gold embossing powder. The I took the trees from an older Tim Holtz set and stamped them with Prima white chalk ink, and it got stuck on the embossing, and I couldn’t get it off without making a mess so I just left it alone, The snowflakes are from the Hero Arts Christmas sentiment set I use all the time.

The Music notes, were a copy write free image I found online, that I put into my Silhouette software and traced (creating a cut file from it) and cut it on cardstock 3 times and layered them together, I then put 2 coats of Hero Arts gold embossing powder, then adhered it overtop of the card.

 

The patterned paper that the black paper is matted with is from the DIY Shop paper pad (it was a scrap from a while ago)

Wow, we are on day 6 already! Haven’t the guest posts been amazing! It is so much fun, and so inspirational to see other people’s work, I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am! Today I kept things rather clean and simple. The deer is from the silhouette studio, the file is called Christmas Demask (design id #34432), I cut and layered 2 of these together and then embossed them with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder a couple of times. Then I tied a piece of pay arts natural jute twine around his throat in a pretty bow.

The card base is Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, I then layered a piece of Birch woodveneer paper (That I got from SSS) a gold colour striped paper (no idea what paper line that is from) and then glitter paper from colorbok. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set, and I layered that on another gold embossed layer.
