It's the Season - Butterfly Reflections Ink

Hi everyone,

I'm very excited to be back on the blog today to share a Christmas card with MFT goodies.

I first cut out two panel with the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles dies, one from from kraft cards stock and the other from vellum.  I stamped the trees from Jingle All the Way to create the background, heat embossed them with Hero Arts white embossing powder and then coloured them in with pencil crayons. 

I then took one of the sentiments from the Joyous Christmas Sentiments and heat embossed them again with the HA white embossing power and added a few starts with some enamel dots to finish off the card. 

Don't forget to stop by the SHOP, there are SO many fun Christmas products, you deserve to treat yourself!

Thanks for stopping by!

Skipping Stone Design Tips/Technique Blog Hop

Hello everyone,

I'm back with our Tips/Technique Hop with Skipping Stones Design.  

I have a tip and a technique and I'll start with the technique.  The art of adding dots to embellish anything.  I have seen this from a few other crafty friends and if you add three bigger dots in a triangle format and the add in lots of little ones around it gives it a more natural look.

For the Tip part, it's something lots of people still cringe about when they see this happen and it's cutting your stamps.  I was one of those who did that but when I did it for the first time I realized that it was so much easier and faster to just cut it apart then to mask one end off and then the other end.  When ever I did that I would forget the tape on and end up with a mess on my project.  
It's okay, they don't scream or cry when you do this, I promise :)

I did some ink blending to the bottom of the card base and with the new Harty Hello set and stamped the sentiment in Versafine onyx black ink.

 We hope you'll hop along with us as one lucky commenter will win a stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
