Here is the card I made...
  
I  made a really cute missing you card! I love the really soft pastel colors in the inspiration photo and just new I wanted to do some ink blending for my focal image background using some distress inks and that is exactly what I did. 
 
 
 
I cut the design paper using the new Fancy Frames dies for the pink scalloped layer and the polka dotted layer as well as the top layer. 
 
I stamped the panda from the Panda Pals Stamp set on watercolor paper using versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I colored in the panda with Tombow watercolor markers. For the smallest inked piece I used Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio distress inks for soft background piece.  I stamped both of the greetings from the same stamp set as well. I wrapped the pink and white bakers twine before tying a bow at the top and sprinkled some pastel dots to pull it all together. 
 
 
 
Here are the CDD products I used:

Matching Poinsettia Card and Tag

Rachel here today with a card featuring a peek at a future set.


I decided to create a matching card and tag set to use this Christmas season. The Poinsettias are gorgeous and so much fun to color!


Right now, these images are in digital format, so I arranged them in a Word document and then printed them out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used my KGC stitched rectangle die to cut out the portion of the images that I wanted to use and then used my Copics to color them in and added shadows around them. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on top of my panel and then heat embossed in gold. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base to add a little contrast.


Next up, I used a tag die to cut out another image for the front of my tag and then used the same process to color it in. I cut another tag from some white cardstock and then heat embossed my sentiment on it. I adhered the sentiment to the back of my poinsettia image to create a completed tag which also hid any bleeding from…

Counting Down!

Hi its Karen on the blog with you today.

I think I may be in denial about Christmas.  It just seems to be sneaking up very very fast.  I know I have loads to do and really need to get going. Hopefully posting this Christmas Ornament may just help. This super cute little image from Kennedy Grace Creations is such a joy to colour and even though he's a christmas critter I think he could be used all year round on projects.  I used a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc to cut the ornament in very sparkly paper.  Then popped the image up on foam.  Added some silver twine and there you have a super cute and easy ornament to adorn the tree or a special gift tag.  I think these would look lovely against shiny white wrapping paper.

I know it looks huge in the photo but its approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches in size.


Have a great day!
