The Ton has 23 new stamps for their Fall 2016 Release (18 clear stamps, 5 rubber cling) which include the Christmas Poinsettia set - a mini 2x3 stamp set which will be included in all orders over $100 (before shipping and taxes). . For today we are sharing 5 new stamp sets..I will be using 3 of those five for my cards today.

First up is FRESH CUT POINSETTIAS, this is one of the easiest multi-step stamping sets I've used. 




Moving on to the next sets: 

FRESH CUT POINSETTIAS OUTLINES...which can be used along with the above stamp set as the fourth layer...or all by itself.... and HOLIDAY CONES OUTLINES I LOVE the white pine branches, they are so very airy feeling!

  • To make this card I inked the large branches from HOLIDAY CONES in BASIL MOJITO and the smaller branches in BRIGHT FERN on white CS
  • layered vellum over the top and wrapped gold thread around the panel.
  • Heat embossed the POINSETTIA OUTLINE bloom in gold, cut that out and adhered it to the gold thread with mini dots
  • Inked the sentiment from SCRIPTY HOLIDAY GREETINGS in NOIR and trimmed around words, cut it apart
  • Cut a frame from GREEN Adhesive Foil Paper using the Double Stitched rectangle dies
  • Embellished with ELF STOCKINGS couture mix.

Stenciled MUM: Inspired By All the Little Things #25

Hello!
I have a Stenciled Large Bloom from Hero Arts turned Mum for the Inspired By All the Little Things #25 challenge.
I was playing hooky from many other responsibilities working, playing with this one:)) But I think it was worth it!

There was a big progression of the cardfront:
I inked several pieces of CS adding an additional layer of color after moving the stencil slightly each time. The final piece had a good dose of ZIGGY definition added at the end:)
 
Here are three fronts and the stencil.

Can you see the simple inking on the top right?
Slight shadow from a shift in the stencil on the bottom left.
BIG dose of Ziggys on the Bottom Right.

Here is the final card after I trimmed it down and added layers of colored CS for matting.
The HUGS is from Stamplorations.
Here is the photo inspiration chosen by Tracey.

Our Guest Artist is:

Virginia's View and Create Along with Us.

Happy Sunday!
I just could not let Virginia View Challenge #23 go with out entering once:)).
It's all about "Spray, Mist and Splatter"... more or less things we can't control. Beauty in the moment of creating unexpected and surprising results!
I was inspired by the design of Danielle's card in this post. I LOVEd the layers of frames with Chicken scratch paper..The Tinsel, and the centered sentiment!
 I found a FABULOUS alternative to the tinsel..Curling ribbon!! Which is SO MUCH easier to work with than thread nests.

Thanks for stopping by!
