USEIT2021 - Die cuts

I needed to use up these die cuts from my tote of items and thought they were perfect for a cute fall card. Layered the die cuts on the embossed panel and glued to the card.


Jesus is the Reason...


This Small Nativity Scene - 696D pairs perfectly with the new Jesus is the Reason Greeting - 893F.

For my card I stamped the Small Nativity Scene on craft card stock and colored with pencils. I then tore the edge and sponged the edge with brown ink.

For the blue base I heat embossed the Jesus is the Reason Greeting in white and then added some additional stars using a white gel pen.

Birthday Balloons


WT871 - punches

Last year for the Blitz tutorials we learned this fun technique called Die Cut Relief. It was so much fun that I tried it again. This time I used stacked balloons punched from my scraps to create the background.

 I used 3 layers of punched balloons and cared the base. I then used black acrylic paint, then gold and I finished with white.

Once the paint was dry I layered it on gold mirror and added a gold mirror die cut birthday sentiment. I just love how this looks. The picture does not do this justice.
