Warm Wishes

Warm Wishes

I started with a red base panel and made my second panel green, cuz let's face it, I am WAY behind on christmas cards. . .

I used a YNS die to cut out the white circles and used YNS Word Critters - Winter Birds to stamp in the circles. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color markers. I got a snow marker last year and thought I would use it on the birds hat. It is kinda like a glue marker, but you use a heat tool and the liquid puffs up giving this really great effect. . . I am going to try to use it on some more Christmas cards this year. . . . 

I used a sentiment form the same stamp set and heat embossed it in white and I had to add some YNS enamel dots to finish it off.

I am entering this card in the following challenges -

Craftin Desert Divas - Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello, Happy Tuesday!!

Thanks for stopping by the Craftin Desert Divas blog today!

I have a Thanksgiving card to share with you today.

I used the digi image Lil' Gobbler, free for the November Mood Board Social Media Challenge, you can request it on the Craftin Desert Divas Gallery Facebook page

I printed the digi image on some heavy weight paper and colored it with prismacolor colored pencil and used gamsol to blend out the color. If you have never used that stuff it is awesome!!!! I used black glaze pen on the hat, a gold Winks of Stella pen on the buckle, and added some white highlight to the tips of the feathers.

I started with a base panel of orange paper and used a circle die from Stiched in circle die set. I off set the die just a little and then placed my turkey in the middle.

For my sentiment I used the thanks die from the Greeting Word Die Set. I die cut it on watercolor paper, colored it with red, orange and yellow Zig Clean color markers and then sprayed it with some perfect pearl water to get all the colors to blend together. The perfect pearl water wasn't enough sparkle for me so I also put a coat of Winks of stella glitter brush pen on it.

I finished off the card with some doodlebug glitter enamel dots, because I really can't make a card without them! I love them sooo much!

I just can't believe it! 
New month means a new mood board over at Craftin Desert Divas! 

I used Craftin Desert Divas Fall Treaseures Digi Stamp. I printed the image to some heavy weight paper and then colored it with colored pencils and Gamsol. I cut it out using a die from the Stitched in Circles Dies.  I cut my polka dot panel using Fancy Frame Dies. I die cut my word with the Greeting Word Dies out of glitter paper. I added a little texture to my card by using some matching ribbon around the center and added some dew drops.
