Sparkly Season's Greetings

Hello, hello!  I am so excited to share this pretty and super sparkly card here and on the Mint Owl Studio Blog today.  I used the new Cardinal Greetings Stamp Set, and I love the classic winter designs in this set.  Let's check out the card...

Isn't it so pretty?! yay!  I love the super bright and sparkly background!  This was one of those cards where I had the idea in my head, but I wasn't sure if it would turn out the way I had envisioned, but it did!

To create this card I started with an oval frame diecut out of the middle of my card front.  I then stamped my bird and tree image onto separate Neenah White Card stock, colored them in with my Copics and white gel pen, and trimmed them out.  These were set to the side while I cut a piece of acetate slightly larger than the oval window and adhered double sided tape to cover the entire piece of acetate.  This too was set to the side while I adhered the tree branch to the backside of the oval, and the bird onto the front side.  The adhesive covered acetate was then laid behind all of this covering the open "window", and then covered with Martha Stewart glitter.  At first I had contemplated using white glitter to give a snow effect, but I felt like it would blend too much into the cardbase and so I chose the blue to really give a pop, and it did!  I then finished the card by stamping the sentiment in a green ink and adhering some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins.

And I'm linking this up to the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge: Birds

Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!!

STAMPlorations Reminder Challenge: Black

Hello!  It is time to share a little more inspiration for this month's STAMPlorations CAS Challenge with the color black as the twist.  I've created a very simple Christmas card this time...

                        (Oh, Christmas Tree! and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies)

I apologize for the sentiment being so hard to read in my photos.  It looks beautiful in person, but I think the shine of the embossing powder made the words hard to read, so hopefully that second photo helps!  I love fun look of the trees in this stamp set and really love how easy this card would be to mass produce for the holidays.  To create this card I started with a black panel, embossed the tree image in 24K Gold Embossing Powder and die cut with the double running stitch.  I then embossed the sentiment with the same embossing powder but onto red card stock and trimmed it out before adhering it to the black panel with foam adhesive.

I can't wait to see what you will create for this challenge!

And a Happy New Year!

*This is post #2 for me today, please scroll down if you are looking for my CAS-ual Friday Post! Thank you!!!

Hello!!!  Today I'm sharing a pretty little Christmas card with you that uses the Cardinal Greetings Stamp Set by Mint Owl Studios.  Their new sets are a mix of snarky, sweet, and classic and I'm totally loving them...

To create this card I started by stamping the bough image all the way around a panel in various green inks.  I then went over the panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and die cut the bottom edge.  Next I die cut a star and stamped my sentiment in the center of it.  I finished it all off with some blue sequins.

This card was super easy and could be used for mass production purposes.  Feel free to share with us what you are creating with your Mint Owl Studio Goodies on any of our social media sights, or by tagging us on your own sites!

Happy Crafting!


CAS-ual Fridays Final Release Day: Powerful Words

Here it is the final day of new releases for CAS-ual Fridays, and it has been awesome if I do say so myself hehehe!  Today we are sharing the Powerful Words Stamp set with all of you...  I decided to create something a little bit different to show how versatile these sets can be as well.  Since I've had Christmas on the brain lately, that's exactly what I went with...

To create this card I started by inking up one of my acrylic blocks with green and red ink, spritzing this with water and "smooshing" it onto the cardstock.  Once this was dry I stamped and embossed the sentiment in 24 K Gold Embossing Powder.  I then hand drew a frame around it and finished it off with some splattering of gold spray.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget to head over to the CAS-ual Fridays Blog for more inspiration and then to the store to grab this set for yourself!  Plus I have a discount code you won't want to miss using...

Happy Crafting/Shopping!
