Final Sneak Peeks: Cookie Cutter Christmas!

Today is the last day before the release of our gorgeous new Holiday Catalogue for 2016!  So I am posting my last two "Sneak Peeks" (AKA peeks 9 & 10) for your viewing pleasure. This time I have focused on the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle.  Its a super cute set that features several Christmas characters that can all be punched out with the co-ordinating Cookie Cutter Builder punch to create easy and fun Christmas cards.

I chose to pair the bundle with the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series paper.... I love the red and neutral palette and its a really easy paper pack to use. I've included a full list of products below for you but don't forget that you can't order the bundle or DSP until tomorrow, September 1st.

The second card I made was a bit of fun I had with the Gingerbread man "eaten" by the scallop punch :-)

Any questions, please click HERE to contact me. And if you are in Australia and would like a copy of the new Holiday catalogue, please let me know so that I can send you one free of charge.

Have fun!

Seaside Diorama with the Thoughtful Branches Thinlits

Today's project is a different take on the Diorama cards that I have shown you previously.  I was inspired to use the Tree framelit die from the Thoughtful Branches bundle as coral for my seascape.

I cut the tree shape from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, and then coloured it with Calypso Coral ink applied with a Sponge Brayer.  The fish from the Seaside Shore set are stamped in Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo inks, and then hand cut.  I put the whole diorama together using the measurements from my earlier video tutorial, which I've included below in case you would like to make a diorama for yourself :-)

The Thoughtful Branches bundle is almost at an end.... So if you've been eyeing this one off, you will need to make sure that you order it before its gone.  Details are below.  To order you can click on the picture of the item you wish to purchase, or you can pay a visit to the ONLINE STORE.

Sneak Peek No. 8: Santa's Sleigh in Soft Sky and White

It's no secret that I love soft colours when Im creating.  For this card I used the new "Santa's Sleigh" bundle (stamps and thinlits) to create a soft Wintry scene.

First I used my sponge brayer to colour the top half of the card with Soft Sky ink, and then embossed it with the Softly Falling Embossing folder. I stamped the tree from the bundle with Smoky Slate ink, and cut it out with the co-ordinating die. I die-cut the sleigh in two pieces... Silver Foil and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. Tip: for a bit more colour you can also use your sponge brayer over the glimmer paper.... it looks awesome!

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink and is from the same stamp set. I used a little silver glitter ribbon from the upcoming catalogue.  Only a few more days until its released on September 1st!

I made this one with a class group today and they really liked it. Hope you like it too!

Sneak Peek No. 7: Starlight Thinlits with a gorgeous Watercoloured background

Today's card I created with another of my favourite new sets from our upcoming new 2016 Holiday Catalogue......The Starlight thinlit dies and matching "Star of Light"stamp set.

This time I used the new Starlight thinlits to create these lovely snowflake shapes out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  I then created a background for them to sit on. I used our Acrylic Stamp block 'E', and used a combination of Pool Party and Island Indigo ink (from the ink refills) and spritzed it with water.  I moved the colours around a little with an aqua pen.  I then used my block directly to the paper to create the lovely background you see here.

For a bit of extra texture I added a few splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in White Craft ink.

I love this background technique because you just never know what you are going to get!

Below is a list of supplies... don't forget that you can't order the Starlight bundle until the 1st September! Everything else is available right now!
