Inspired By All the Little Things #36

Today, I have a card to share for 

Our Southern Home | Christmas Decorating with Cars | http://www.oursouthernhomesc.com:

I love this red truck!
It inspired me to use my Reverse Confetti Bearing Gifts to make my card.


So, I originally wanted to use some plaid patterned paper for my card,
because of the plaid table runner in the photo, but I couldn't fine any in my stash.
I found some chevron pattern that I thought I could use, but when I flipped it over,
I saw these fun stars on the back.
I decided they were so cute, I just had to use them instead!


I stamped the cute bear in his car from Bearing Gifts onto its coordinating Confetti Cuts
and coloured it in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and  water brush.
I diecut the banner using the banner die from Tag Me Confetti Cuts
and heat embossed the sentiment from Bearing Gifts in white.

A Year In Review Altenew Challenge

Happy Friday!
This has been a long week... we had a huge storm on Monday
which cancelled school for Tuesday and Wednesday.
I was still able to make it in to work, but it's been slow this week...
I'm so thankful for our wonderful warm house
to shelter us from the snow and cold!

Today, I'm sharing the card that I made for the


They're reviewing all of the challenges posted this year, 
which I am pleased to say that I participated in  -- all except one. ;)


For today's card, I chose to be inspired by April's Challenge,
with those lovely greys, blues and gold.
I used Bamboo Roses to make my card.


I heat embossed my stamped images in gold and then coloured them in with 
my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush.


I stamped my sentiment using PTI's Tropics stamp set (in Altenew Sapphire)
and created a border for my card with some soft stone cardstock,
Concord & 9th's Woodgrain stamp and Altenew Evening Grey.

Thanks for looking!

Countdown to Confetti: You’re So & Outlined

Welcome, 'Fetti Fans to Day 2 of the December Release for Reverse Confetti

newrelease

This month's release is really fantastic!
We're releasing four new stamp sets & six new Confetti Cuts!
Make sure you come back and visit every day for the next three days,
so you don't miss a thing!

Today, we're showcasing two new sentiment sets:
You're So (which has coordinating Confetti Cuts!) and Outlined.

I have three cards to share...

Here's my first card, which uses Outlined:


I love this sentiment!
When I saw it, I immediately knew that I wanted to create a moon for my card.
I started with a piece of watercolour paper and heat embossed my sentiment
from Outlined in clear.
Then, I coloured over top with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers
and a water brush.


I also created my moon with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers
and a water brush, on a circle I diecut using the largest circle from 

My next card pairs together Outlined with a fun new tag die we're releasing 
this month called Peekaboo Tag Layer Confetti Cuts.


I diecut the Peekaboo Tag Layer Confetti Cuts from Iced Aqua Cardstock
and heat embossed my sentiment from Outlined onto it in white.


I made sure that I adhered the edges of the tag well to my Cloud White Cardstock base.
Then...


The recipient can pull up the tag to reveal a surprise!


Here, I stamped the adorable mouse and fun sentiment from Mouse Mail in 
versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed it in clear.
I coloured it in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush.

And my last card for today uses the same mouse from Mouse Mail 
(can you tell I'm a little smitten with her?) the new You're So stamp set
and coordinating Confetti Cuts and another new tag we're releasing this month
called Bar Tag Layer Confetti Cuts.


I diecut the new Bar Tag Layer Confetti Cuts from Lime Green Cardstock.
On it, I stamped the sentiments from You're So in Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I diecut the "wonderful" from Iced Aqua Cardstock using the new 
You're So Confetti Cuts.


I diecut the Mouse Mail Confetti Cuts and stamped it with its coordinating
stamp in versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed it in clear.
I coloured it in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush.

Countdown to Confetti: Mouse Mail

Welcome, 'Fetti Fans to Day 1 of the December Release for Reverse Confetti

newrelease

This month's release is really fantastic!
We're releasing four new stamp sets & six new Confetti Cuts!
Make sure you come back and visit every day for the next three days,
so you don't miss a thing!

Today, we're showcasing an adorable new set with coordinating Confetti Cuts 
called Mouse Mail.

Here's my first card:


I started by stamping the mailbox and sentiment
 from Mouse Mail onto Cloud White Cardstock.
I diecut the Mouse Mail Confetti Cuts and stamped them with their coordinating
stamps in versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed them in clear.
I coloured everything in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers
and a water brush.


I adhered the Mouse Mail mice with dimensional adhesive
and matted everything onto Iced Aqua Cardstock.

Next, I have an ornament I made using Mouse Mail
and a fun new three dimensional mail box dei that we're releasing this month
called Mailbox Starter Confetti Cuts.


Isn't it sweet?
I diecut the Mailbox Starter Confetti Cuts from Iced Aqua Cardstock
I lined the bottom of the mail box with the Brick Cardstock.
To complete the mailbox, you need to cut a 1.75"x3.5" rectangle.


I cut mine with Iced Aqua Cardstock, and trimmed a slightly narrower piece of 
Very Merry 6x6 Pad patterned paper to put over top.


I diecut the Mouse Mail Confetti Cuts and stamped it with its coordinating
stamp in versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed it in clear.
I coloured it in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush.


I did the same with adorable stack of mail that also comes in Mouse Mail.

CAS(E) This Sketch #200 -- Take Two

A couple of weeks ago, Marni Luhu, the store where I sell my cards,
had an open house for Christmas, along with several other stores in town.
She asked me to make tags for cider packages that they handed out to customers.
I had made one tag to show her and then together we tweaked the design slightly
for me to use as a sample for the 100 tags I made.

The original tag was sitting on my desk, unused and I thought,
why not use it to make a card?
I thought of this week's CAS(E) This Sketch #200 designed by Sam Simpson
and thought it would be perfect!



I pulled some Pink Paislee Merry & Bright patterned paper.


I layered the patterned paper over a piece of burgundy cardstock.


To create my tag, I cut a strip of white cardstock an added a strip of kraft cardstock that I had impressed using my PTI Stripes Impression Plate (discontinued).
I diecut the cup using some MFT dies and stamped 
my sentiment using MFT's Hand Lettered Holiday.

There's still time to play along with this week's CAS(E) this Sketchif you'd like.
You have until Thursday, December 8th to link up your card.
