And another one for the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers blog hop. This moose is such a fun one and I finally got it out and used it.
I die cut out all the pieces using two die cut sets by Sizzix/Tim Holtz. I inked up some of the pieces around the edges and some over the whole die cut. For the mountains I added a bit over the top to tone down the off white. As you can see these are paper piecing dies.
The background I am pretty please with. It came last. I ink blended using Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide inks. Then I put a bit of Picket Fence Distress Paint on my mat and added a bit of water. I used a good old sponge and lightly tapped it on the background. I also splattered a bit of the white.
The sentiment is stamped.

Here is a card I created for the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers blog hop. Plus.. another one done for the end of the year.
For the background I used Distress Cracked Leather Cardstock and Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink. And surprisingly, if you have seen some of my other posts, I used the smooshing technique (I do this often).
I inked all of the die cuts using Distress Oxide ink.
The sentiment is die cut and from the Christmas Ribbon die set. The rest of the die cuts are from the Festive Trims die set.
I have a butterfly thank you card for you today. I like butterflies and need to use them more often.
So happy with how my card turned out considering I wasn’t sure about the background colors when I first made it. I started off smooshing Distress inks for the background which I did some time back. I used Distress Inks Speckled Egg, Wilted Violet, Wild Honey. I cut the butterflies out and they were just sitting around. You know how finally some pieces just fall together.
When I started putting this together I stamped over that smooshed background with a flower stamp using Distress Paint and and text stamp using Distress Ink.
I die cut the butterflies and sentiment from black paper and then put some Antique Bronze Distress Paint on them.

One more Christmas card for now that I made a bit ago. I like following along with the sketches in the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers group in Facebook. I need to get a little more productive with it though. Anyway here is one from last months sketch.
As you can see this a fairly straight forward card. I stamped the Santa with a wood block stamp (what?) and colored with Copic markers and a white Wink of Stella pen. Then I die cut the image with a circle die.
The sentiments was stamped and cut out with a circle die.

Here we go with a Christmas card I made awhile ago. I was kind of playing around and trying some things.
For the background I used some Distress Oxides (Frayed Burlap, Evergreen Bough, Pumice Stone, Antique Linen). I used the Gothic stencil with grit paste and went over the paste with Tarnished Brass Crayon. I also stamped using the swirl and text from the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Poinsettia set.
The pine cones and branches are colored with Distress Oxide ink and die cut using the Tim Holtz Pine Branch set.
The sentiment is stamped using a stamp from the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Poinsettia set.

This one got by me… So here I am to get it posted. Some Tim Holtz flowers for my sister.
For the background I used some Tim Holtz woodgrain paper. It was already ink blended. Then I added to it using crayons Bundled Sage and Tea Dye to give it some highlights. I splattered some Antique Linen Distress paint on it also.
The flowers are die cut and water colored using reinkers.
The sentiment is made by die cutting a banner and ink blending Distress Oxide ink. The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz set Saying Stuff stamp set.

Here I go finally posting my Tim Holtz Snowglobe card. I made it some time ago but I am just getting around to posting it.
I used the fab Sizzix Tim Holtz Snowglobe #2 set to create this card. This is the first time I put this together and I am very happy how it turned out.
There are many pieces to this but I kind of see it like a puzzle. I just cut out the pieces from different colored pieces of paper. I inked around the edges of some. The one tip I would give is cut out the glow in the windows using bigger pieces. I cut out all those little pieces and glued them in.
The sky background is done with blue and purple Distress Oxide inks. I did some ink smooshing. Shocking I know.
The sentiment is heat embossed.
The background paper behind the globe is from the Tim Holtz Paper Stash pad Christmas/Noel. I inked around the edges.

Howdy! I finally got another Christmas card done and I used the sketch from Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers group in Facebook.
This is a fairly quick card to make. I stamped the Santa and colored it with Copics and a white Wink of Stella pen. A little secret about my card.. I spilled a little water on the Santa after I colored it but it just made it without very much damage.
The sentiment is stamped.
All of the circles were cut out using dies.

And another one for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop. I might of broken a record this time.
Here is a card I made with a stamp set that I got Tuesday at Creative Escape in Los Gatos, CA. They have so many great things to choose from! Very well stocked.
It is a stamp set by Polkadoodles which has several really cute gnome stamps. Gnomes, mushrooms and coffee what is not to love! Technically it is called Gnome for Tea but I think anything can go in that cup, coffee, tea, hot chocolate or even water (not as much fun).
I stamped the image and colored it in with Copics.
I layered up some papers from my stash and the image is raised up with foam.
The sentiment is also from the stamp set.
