Technique Tuesday Release Day! November!

Today is the day for all the new Technique Tuesday November products to be available HERE!

For this card, I used the new Technique Tuesday set,ย Christmas Cocoa Stamp Set! I cannot tell you how excited I was about this stamp set! Merry Peppermint EVERYTHING!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I colored all the elements with Copic Markers and then masked it off with a Molotow pen. After that I blended on Distress Oxide inks and added water and lots of paint spatters. The cute snowflakes are from a new release Dani Deer set, as well. I finished it off with some stitching and it’s ready to send to all my peppermint loving friends! โค

November Release Countdown, Day 2 from Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s November Release Countdown! Today I get to share this VERY cool die!

I am sharing a card I made withe the soon to be released Sweater Weather Crafting Die. I am looking forward to using this die on all the things this winter! ๐Ÿ™‚ This great sentiment is from the newย Hello Winter Stamp Set.ย (*Links will work when the new products are released tomorrow, November 1st)

I die cut this die four times on this card panel and then popped out one row to make them red vs. white. I adhered everything down well, and then attached it all on an aqua note card. A favorite color combo for Winter. โคย  This card is so cozy!

25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Today I am sharing cards made for my sweet friend Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags!! How fun is that? I used all these great holiday stamps from Technique Tuesday today! They can be found HERE!

These first two are more “traditional” holiday colors.

For all of these, I cut/used small cardstock strips glued down to a piece of regular ol’ paper. Then I die cut the tags out from each before stamping and heat embossing the sentiments.

^^That is one of my favorite sentiments! ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL!

These last two are a fun take on Christmas colors. ๐Ÿ™‚

For all my tags, I used various sentiments from Technique Tuesday: Spirit of December, Dear Santa, Christ is Born, and Classic Christmas Sentiments. The Classic Christmas Sentiments set is such a staple set! And of course, the Dear Santa set is my laughable fun fave! ๐Ÿ™‚ (The tiny stars and snowflakes are all from the fun TT planner sets HERE.)

Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!ย ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

The Big Technique Tuesday Progressive Sale of good finds is still going on and the savings is even bigger! The sale is discounting many awesome products on their way to retirement. Grab them before they are gone HERE! (Be sure to read the codes HERE and type them in for great savings!)

with sympathy

Hello! Today I’m popping in with a card using Paper Smooches NEW November die: With Sympathy Die.

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I struggle with this type of card. I’m pretty sure it’s because I make them when needed vs. ahead of time. At the time I need them,ย  nothing seems appropriate. But ahead of time, these turned out lovely and will hopefully express our love when we send them.

For these, I masked off my card panel and blended on some Distress Inks to all of them. I even have the forethought to write them down to share below!

Distress Ink color combos: The Orange-ish one: Abandoned Coral, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed. The Yellow one: Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Dried Marigold. The Blue one: Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers. It would probably be helpful if I kept track of combos that work lovely together, but I don’t. I just wing it every time. With Distress Inks, you can generally fix any blend gone awry anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card I used: New With Sympathy die and the previously released Paper Smooches set, Best Buds. I white heat embossed the flowers with Versamark and Hero Arts White embossing powder. It really is the perfect die for these cards. I’m planning to make some more like these to have on hand.

All the November release from Paper Smooches can be found HERE! It’s a sweet release! You’ve been warned ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ! Also, be sure to follow all the fun over on the Paper Smooches Blog HERE!

Have a GREAT weekend! โค

Holiday Cards

Welcome to the weekend! Hope you are looking forward to some fun these couple of days! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m popping in to share a few more cards using new stamps from Technique Tuesday today! They can be found HERE!

This lovely festive new set is: Barberry Stamp Set. I also used sentiments from: Spirit of December and Dear Santa. The Dear Santa set is definitely a well-loved one. LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

I stamped and colored the berries with Copic markers on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. For the card base, I used some sparkly washi my sweet friend gave me. It’s from X-Press It: Deco Tape Copper Glitter ! Helllllllllo sparkly goodness! Also, while I was there, I saw lots of other tapes that I’m going *need*! Cork!? And…Shiny Skinny Tape HERE!ย  Good gracious! Ok, back to the card! ๐Ÿ™‚ Got a little sidetracked by the sparkly there for a minute! haaa! (Enabling friends are trouble, aren’t they?ย  โค โคย  )ย 

I added a few different touches to each of them, but I am glad I made three at once. I keep saying I need to do this WAY more! ๐Ÿ™‚

To finish them off, I added a few black dots, my favorite Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and some stitching. Simple and festive! ๐Ÿ™‚

Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!ย ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello Hello Hello! :)

Hooray for Happy Friday! I’m popping in with another card using Paper Smooches NEW November goodies! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card I used:ย  New Layered Hello Dies! I’m pretty sure by now you can feel my love for these dies! โค๏ธ One of my favorite cards to make is “Hello”–those no reason cards but just because. ย Perfection for those! ๐Ÿ™‚

I die cut the “background” hello from three different colors. Then layered up the white hello on top. I adhered all three down to a scored panel and added some quick stitching. I just love these clean cards! ๐Ÿ™‚

All the November release from Paper Smooches can be found HERE! Just love those Baby Birds! ๐Ÿ™‚

It just started “snowing” here today–and by snow, I mean the tiniest little flakes EVER! ๐Ÿ™‚ But Brrrrrr! Have a cozy weekend all!
