For day 2 of The Greeting Farm previews, we are previewing the Love You die! I paired it up with Greateful for You stamp set!
I embossed the florals from the Grateful for You stamp set in white embossing powder on hotpress watercolor paper. Adding a few layers of distress oxide “squishing it with water” technique, I don’t know what to call it… wait its smooshhing right, something like that.
After that was dry, I took a black pencil and traced the embossing under neath and to the right to make it look as though the flowers are actually popped up when they are flat!
I then cut the Love You sentiment out of the panel and 4 more times out of white layering those up to create an eclipse card.
I used some scrap shabby papers (one day I will get this paper all used up) a nice big white bow, behind the image I layered a couple of cuts from the Gilded Oval Die set.

Hey everyone, welcome to the month of October, this month is all about Christmas on my blog. Not only Christmas but out electronic die cutters as well. I know many of us that have these machines in our stash, some of us use them faithfully. Others, like myself, don’t use them nearly enough. So myself, with the help of some of my friends, hope to inspire you to get those Christmas cards made, and those machines uncovered, dusted and let them cut like crazy for you.
Here we go, I personally use a Silhouette Cameo, so all the cut files for my first card this month come directly from the silhouette store. I started with the circle card file cutting it in white, I then found a pretty layered snowflake and cut that so it just slightly over hung on the card base. Continuing working that machine hard I found a fun little ornament to use, and a pretty bow to top the ornament off. the banner is a layered banner where I stamped a very simple merry christmas sentiment that is from a Hero arts set ( CL343).
As much as this card looks full and layered it really did come together quickly, no inking, minimal stamping, just later all the pieces togehter and adhere them to the card.
More watercolour, yes it has become an obsession. What can I say when I love something I kinda run with it.
The lighting in this card isn’t great, and I apologize for that, unfortunately the colour’s coming in through the window just weren’t quite right. Anyway. onto the card, I again used Heidi Swapp colour shine to make this card, Blush, Mint Green, and White are the colours I used. The stamps are from Simon Says Stamp, Love Languages, and Tilted Banner Stamp’s and dies. The Polaroid Frame is a die from The Greeting Farm.
The Ink used to stamp the hand image, and the sentiment is Crumb Cake from Stampin up. The white enamel dots are from My Minds Eye, and the others are from Basic Grey.
Laces and trims are as usual from my stash, as well as the vellum with the tiny hearts in the back round. I probably bought it all from a garage sale somewhere.
