Here's what I've created for you...


I'm ahead on my holiday cards for this year for sure. Today I've created a shaker card. I've used my Banner dies and fuse tool this time to create the shaker shape on this card.  Then I've used the banner die to cut some watercolor paper that I've blended some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and water on.  I then added some Merry Mix sequins to the inside of the banner shape before I sealed it up with my fuse tool. The white layer of paper is cut out with my Fancy Frame dies. I really love that set for all my layers. They come in super handy and make cutting those base layers super fast to make.

 The wreath is a couple of green paper layers from the new Stitched In Circle Dies. I took some of the small red sequins from the Merry Mix to add the hollies on the wreath. To finish it up I added some Silver DMC Metallic Thread and stamped my sentiment in Delicata Silvery Shimmer from the Polar Pals stamps.


 I recently bought some Ranger Texture Paste and wanted to give it a try so I decided to make my own heart stencil made out of acetate. I found these hearts in the Silhouette Studio. I arranged them and then cut them out of acetate. I then added a thin layer of the texture paste. I then lifted up the acetate being careful not to mess up the hearts. Once the hearts were dry I then blended some Tim Holtz Distress inks over them. I was really surprised how fast it dry and I will be using this a lot more as I really liked it.

I finished up the card I've used two of the dies from the In Line Dies.I love that pretty thanks with the hearts and the embossing stitch die from this new die set.

Thank you all SO much for joining us and I can't wait to see what you create with these new CDD Goodies.
