I wanted to share some cards that I made using two awesome dies. They are the My Favorite Things Snow Drifts Horizontal and Vertical Cover-Up Die-namics.  What fun I had using the dies to make these two cards. I also have extra papers to make three more cards.

On my first card I die cut a sheet of pattern paper and inlaid the papers into the black frame.   I stamped the sentiment from the My Favorite Things Joyous Christmas stamp set and die cut it using an My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag dies ~ hard to see since I put the snowflake above the end of it..  the top layer is layered onto a white piece of cards stock and onto a Kraft card base.     The button on the snowflakes is one that I had received in one of my orders from TupeloDesignsLLC.


I have recently stamped and colored a bunch of the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence images. This sweet girl is one of them.  I die cut a piece of vellum using the My Favorite Things Pierced Circle Stax dies and put it behind the girl.


These are the dies I used for the cards today.  Just imagine the fun you can have making quick and background for your cards. You can use the dies to die cut out shapes like I did, or use them to emboss a background ~ I'll try that soon!  My Favorite Things Snow Drifts VERTICAL and HORIZONTAL.



I used some Snowflake dies from my stash that I cut out the shapes using some glitter papers, also from my stash. I glued them together and used a button from one of my packages from TupeloDesignsLLC. I threaded some hemp cord through the button and snowflakes after I pierced some holes through the button and tied a bow.


I used two pieces of pattern paper from a 6 x 6 paper pad. I cut the pieces down to 4 1/4 wide. I cut them both at the same time and they cut out beautifully.  Saves time doing them both together.


I covered a piece of card stock that I cut just a little smaller than the die itself with Sticky tape and adhered it to the die.  I only did this for the one card, the rest I used liquid glue instead on the outer piece of the die and the inserts. I found it a little easier, but did want to share that I used this method as well.


These are the papers that are left that can be used on more cards.


This past week I spent time watching TV and coloring in these My Favorite Things images. I colored in some other stamp sets that I will be using on cards soon.



Blog Giveaway Winner is ROBIN HOFF!!   Congratulations!!  I will be emailing you.    I will do another giveaway next week.

I used some fun My Favorite Things products on the two cards I have to share today.  The images and sayings from the Chill Wishes stamp set are tooo cute!   I used the coordinating dies as well.


I used Copic Markers and colored up all the images a few days ago ~ along with a bunch of other MFT stamp sets, while watching TV.  I haven't done this in a long while and it felt so good.  I still have a couple more sheets of images to color.



The shapes were all die-cut using the Chill Wishes Die-namics and running them through my BigShot machine.




They are so cute when cut out.  The dies make it easier to cut them out, however the images are ones that would be easy for you to fussy cut without the dies as well.   **the little girl was colored up and will be used on another card.


I used this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #309.

Happy Thanksgiving Day!  I had thought about making a "thanks" card, but really wanted to ink up and use this new Spellbinders stamp called "Most Wonderful Time" ~ what a fun font they used for this stamp.  This is my first Spellbinders stamp and I must say that it stamped beautifully. I did ink and stamp the sentiments twice just to get a nice dark image.  If I was using an acrylic block I would've been pleased with one inking and stamping. I can't wait to get some more of their stamps. They are red rubber mounted on foam.



I cut a strip of the white card stock to be 3 1/8" wide.  I put it in my stamping tool and stamped the sentiment stamp on one end, flipped it around and stamped it again on the other end. I then cut those pieces down to 3 1/8 x 2 1/2 as well as the piece in the middle, I then put it back in the stamping tool and stamped it.  **note. I happen to have this type of stamping tool. TupeloDesignsLLC sells another brand that I will link below in the supplies list.


The fun thing about using the pattern papers that I did, is that you can use either side of the papers and mix things up.


Everything is ready ~ time to assemble all the cards. The snowflakes are die-cut using the Lawn Fawn Mini Snowflakes and Stitched Snowflakes dies and cut from glitter paper.



Here's most of what I used my cards:


I ended up with 8 cards using two of the 12 x 12 papers from the Lawn Fawn Let's Bokeh in the Snow paper pack, a few sheets of black card stock and one sheet of white card stock to stamp the sentiments on . I used Neenah White card bases to attach all the card tops to. They are ready for mailing now.


I wanted to share a picture of my Design Team package that arrived 1 day after placing my order ~ Wahoo!  Talk about super fast shipping.   I added all the packs of Lawn Fawn Let's Bokeh in the Snow to my order ~ love the Lawn Fawn papers.  



I used this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #475:

Oh what a fun set this sweet Neat and Tangled Baby Jesus stamp set is. It has a coordinating die that I purchased, but didn't use it on these cards.  

I inked up the image of the Baby Jesus with Versamark ink, stamped it onto some Tim Holtz Watercolor paper, covered it with embossing powder and then heat set it. Watching the embossing powder melt is just as fun today as it was years ago when I watched it for the very first time.

The sentiments are stamped with Versafine Black ink.

I stamped two images and colored them both with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. On one I colored directly onto the watercolor paper and on the other I scribbled the ink onto an acrylic block and picked up the color with a waterbrush.

I took pictures of the coloring where I colored directly onto the watercolor paper.  You just scribble on the color and pull it out and about using the waterbrush.. super easy!






*after I was done coloring the image I covered it all except the face and hair with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen. 



Here are most of the supplies I used on my cards:

I love Cardinal's ~ I remember always being so excited when they would come to our bird feeder or in the trees around our house.  When I seen the Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal stamp set and die set I knew I had to get it. I am once again excited .. to ink it up!



I used a stamping tool to position the layering stamps.   *note: I was off a little on one of the layers so I had a line above the beak of the bird. I used the end of my Pick up Stick to dab color on it and fill it in.

layer 1:

layer 2:


layer 3:


 Add black around face and beak and it's done. It's just that easy!


After stamping the cardinal, tree branches and greenery, I die cut all the pieces.  *I ended up not using the birds legs/feet

The dies cut the images out so nicely leaving a small border around each.  I stamped and die cut more images from the set to add to the sentiment piece.


Here's the cardinal, tree branches and greenery on the card.   After the card was assembled, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dark Walnut.


Here are most of the supplies that I used on my card:
