A big Congrats to Julie, the newest Featured Stamper! Wow, what ginormous & beautiful gallery! I chose THIS card to case. I kept the colors and basic layout, but I used a die cut as my main element and moved the oval a bit to accommodate it.

This is a very CAS card. Made even easier because I die cut the pumpkin out of an already brayered/stamped piece I had. I didn’t like the way it looked as it was, so I die cut it & since the die cut is so open, it really came out looking much nicer ūüôā The greeting is stamped directly on the card front w/ the rust and textured white layers having die cut ovals around it. I added a bit more of the die cut flourishes around the oval.

Congrats again, Julie! Enjoy your week! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today, we are reviewing the ODBD November release. ¬†Aren’t these ornament images and dies lovely? So perfect for all your Christmas cards and so easy to customize with whatever colors and papers you want to use. For my ornament, I stamped it w/ the concord ink and added color w/ Copic markers. The greeting was stamped on a strip of the same snowflake paper (from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection), added a hint of color before attaching it across the ornament w/ a couple of purple mini brads. ¬†For the snowflake paper layer, I used a French curve ruler and a craft knife to cut the curvy borders. After piercing along the edges, I added a bunch of graduating sizes of circles. These were die cut and although I didn’t use the actual die cut, I liked all the little rounded dots.

The snowflake paper was attached on top of another piece of designer paper. On this dp, I enhanced the lt blue areas w/ a Copic marker. After everything was attached, I added some stickles to the dots and also the centers of the snowflakes on the ornament.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Weekly-FavoriteToday’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC453), artichoke, cherry & baked brown sugar, are such great colors for Christmas that I made another card. Mary (owner of Serendipity Stamps), asked if anyone could think of a way to make this super owl die look Christmasy. This is what I came up with using the hat and scarf from the Snowman w/ Birds image. ¬† Julie Warner - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com

After die cutting the owl, I attached him to a piece of dk red. Originally I had die cut a smaller labels 4, but I changed my mind and put the die cut label back into the piece and used it as one. I had a scrap of an artichoke piece so I used it on the right side. The snowy scene was stamped onto the kraft (as close as I have to the baked brown sugar) and I added snow on the trees w/ a white gel pen. The snow on the ground was done w/ a white prismacolor pencil. The falling snow was done by seriously thinning white acrylic paint (approx. 6 to 1 water/paint) in a fine mister and spritzing. I wanted something else red, so I drew a tiny cardinal in the tree. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25. These are the Copics I used to color the hat & scarf.
