CC Designs Hipster Santa


Hello!  Today, I have a VERY fun Christmas card to share with you.  This is Hipster Santa and he's NEW at CC Designs!  How fun!  For my card, I used some patterned paper to create a winter scene.  I chose some birch trees and used a hills die to make a layer of snow at the bottom.  Then I colored up my Santa with Copic Markers and fussy cut him out using my Scan N Cut 2.  Then I popped him on top of my winter scene and mounted that on top of a black scalloped rectangle.  Then I added my sentiment to the bottom and layered the whole thing on top of some red snowflake paper.  A pretty simple card, but I think it makes an impact!  


Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!

La-La Land Crafts Orange and Black

Hello!  This week's theme at La-La Land Crafts is Orange and Black.  I decided to use some of the new stamps and dies to create a tropical sunset card.  To begin, I started with a piece of orange polka dot patterned paper.  Then I layered on top a white label die and a tropical scene created with the NEW Summer Is Here Layering Stencil.  Then I die cut that into an oval and popped it on top with some foam tape.  I added some black die cut sand and palm trees as well as a couple of birds flying in the sky.  Then I colored up my Toucan and popped him my card using some foam tape.  I added my sentiment and some black die cut leaves to finish the card off.  Such a great way to say, "goodbye, summer."

Stamping Bella Mad Hatter

Hello!  Today, I'm sharing a fun and very whimsical card using the Oddball Mad Hatter Stamp from Stamping Bella!  To create my card, I started with some black and white checkered patterned paper.  Then I used the Leafy Frame die from Simon Says Stamp to cut two pieces of card stock.  The first I cut with blue card stock and the second I cut with purple card stock.  I layered them both on top of each other and added some additional green die cut leaves here and there to fill in the scene.  Then I colored up my Hatter and cut him out using my Scan N Cut 2.  I popped him on top with some foam tape, added some mushrooms from Lawn Fawn and finished it off with my sentiment and little cat.

La-La Land Crafts Halloween


Hello!  Halloween is just a few weeks away and this week at La-La Land Crafts, it's all about Halloween!  For my card, I chose some non-traditional bright colors.  First, I started with a piece of blue patterned paper.  I trimmed it to fit my card base and layered it on top of a hot pink scalloped rectangle.  Then I added a couple of black birch trees, some green grass and a circle for my moon.  Then I colored up my image, fussy cut her out using my Scan N Cut 2, and popped her on top of the moon using foam tape.  I cut a couple of bats out of black glitter paper and placed them just beside her.  For my sentiment, I used the boo die and layered it 3 times to give it some stability.  Then I added that to the bottom of the card and finished everything off with my sentiment.
