Winter Blues...

November is flying by so fast!

Today, I'm sharing a card created using the Winter Tree Stained Glass Panel Die from the October release at Tutti Designs.

Are you a warm weather person and have the "winter blues" already?  The trees are bare and have that winter look of no leaves.  Well, hugs for you warm weather lovers out there! 

"Hugs"

This CAS card uses the Winter Tree Stained Glass Panel, Hugs Word Set and Stitched Hearts.  The stained glass panel is cut from gold and matted with blue metallic specialty paper.

 
 I cut the sentiment and heart from red velvet and offset them using the same dies cut from white cardstock.  Three red jewels in the lower portion of the frame complete the card.

Impression Obsession Santa and Sleigh

Wouldn't this be a great die to showcase on your holiday cards and projects?

Here's my Santa inspiration...


I've add lots and lots of layers to this 6 x 6 Santa card.  The card base of green cardstock is layered with Photoplay Mad Plaid papers.  What a fun collection of holiday papers!  I used ready made tags and die cut banner tags as the focal point.  Aside from the Santa, I took inspiration from the traditional holiday colors, the circle shape of the moon and the stars. 


This Santa bell is one of my all time favorite embellishments for holiday cards.  The red bow represents his red hat.  I added a white pom pom as the topper!  My supply of bells is running low and I need to find more of them soon.

Tutti Designs Poppies Stained Glass!

I'm back today sharing another project using one of the newly released stained glass panel die cuts from Tutti Designs.  They are a must see in the Tutti Store!

Today's card features the Poppies Stained Glass Panel Die Cut. 

Poppies have a special meaning to our military veterans.  Although we see it used on Memorial Day as a symbol of remembrance for those that gave their lives, I thought it would be great to share this die now as we recently celebrated Veterans' Day on September 11th.  Veteran's Day is a day to honor all military members...those who are serving, have served and those retired.  My father-in-law is a WWII Navy veteran and my younger brother is an 82nd Airborne veteran along with numerous other extended family members that are serving or retired military veterans.  A big thank you to all for your service!

So, this one's for them...

"Faith"

I decided to go basically monochrome on this A2 card using a navy cardstock base and sentiment with orange micro beads as the filler for my image.


I used white cardstock for the Poppy Stained Glass image and cut a piece of double sided adhesive paper the same size. 




Next, I adhered the die cut to one side of the adhesive paper.


I filled in all the areas and patted gently to make sure the beads were adhered tightly and sprayed the image with iridescent glitter spray.


I was thrilled to see how well the micro beads filled in and adhered to the die cut image.


I added the "Faith" sentiment in the lower right of the card.
