Christmas Bag and Card


Hello Everyone!  Today I'm playing with some of the latest releases by ODBD - making a couple of Christmas projects!  My first one is a giftbag - using the Card Caddy and Gift Bag Die to cut some cream card to make the base of the bag.  I've then used the Gift Bag Handles and Topper Dies to cut a piece of ODBD Christmas 2017 paper for the top.  Once I've glued that to the cream base, I've used another die from Gift Bag Handles and Topper dies to cut the rectangular handle.  I've also used a piece of ODBD Christmas 2017 paper for the green panel behind the cream filigree front panel.  I've created the poinsettias using Peaceful Poinsettias dies as well as Leaves and Branches dies.  The brown card curve was cut using Curvy Slopes dies.  Finally the lovely Merry Christmas sentiment was cut using gold card and the Merry Christmas Caps die!  Perfect for giving a little Christmas gift or a set of cards!

My second project today is a card full of festive cheer!  This one has a base of white, a panel of blue cut with Snowflake Sky die.  I've then used another die from the same set to cut the white topper panel of snowflakes.  Next I've take a piece of Christmas 2017 Collection Paper and created a notched tag piece.  I've stamped the Noel Ornaments image in Memento Rich Cocoa onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've cut this out with Pierced Circles Dies and popped up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a few silver sequins for a touch of sparkle!

Graduation


Hello Everyone!  Here in Australia, we are coming to the end of our school year and our Year 12 students have all just finished their schooling and preparing for University or the work force.  I have been working with a young woman since April who although was in the middle of her Year 12 studies and being home schooled; took the big step of also starting a Pastry Chef apprenticeship full time as well.  She really is such a lovely young woman and has been a great addition to the team - so when she finally completed her final exams and graduated, I wanted to make her a card to celebrate the occasion!

I've created a base of white using Radiant Rectangles and topped with pink using the same die.  Then I've cut some silver using the next die in the set.  I've stamped the image from As You Graduate in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics and sponged the sky with different inks.  I've cut this out with the oval from Radiant Rectangles and matted with pink cut with another die from the same set.  I've used the sentiment from For The Graduate and split it up, stamping one part and die cutting with Labels 33 and the stamping the other part and cut with Ribbon Banners Dies.  To finish I've added a couple of clear rhinestones.

Stamps - As You Graduate, For the
Paper - White, Pink, Silver, X-press It Blending Card
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Dandelion, Angel Pink, Summer Sky
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders: Radiant Rectangles, Ribbon Banners, Labels 33; Clear Rhinestones
