Sending Tons Of...

Hello everyone! Kristin here with a sweet card showcasing the new mini stamp set, Tons, and two die sets, Stitched in Circles Dies and Stitched Scallop Dies. When I saw this little elephant, I thought it would be fun to make it look like he (or she) was leaning out of the circle. 
Here is my card:

This stamp reminds me of a pink stuffed animal that I had when I was little so of course I had to color the elephant pink! haha 
To start, I colored the images with various copic markers and stamped the tiny hearts from the stamp set several times. I ended up using three small hearts above the elephant's trunk. I die cut the circles with the Stitched in Circles Dies and Die cut the hearts panel with one of the Stitched Scallop Dies
I created the background blending Picked Raspberry Distress Ink out from behind the circles into the top of the card and lightly blending Picked Raspberry behind the hearts panel. The larger hearts are from the Chilly stamp set, stamped with Ultra Pink and Soft Pink inks from Hero Arts.
I used the sentiment, "Sending TONS of" on the front of the panel and inside the card it says, Heartfelt Thanks.
The sequins are from the sets, Hocus Pocus and StarPower. To finish the card, I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the elephant's ears and over the tiny hearts. After covering the tiny hearts with Glossy Accents, I was done.

Hi ladies! Giorgia here from Ciocioscrap with my daily post!
Again I want to share with you a Christmas card using a die from the new release. I didn't realize at first that this die is absolutely perfect for creating backgrounds.
So here's my card!

I took a piece of blue cardstock that I die cut with a die from the Fancy Frame.
After this I used the die with stars and circles several times in order to create a nighty sky. I adhered a silver paper to the back and glued this background onto a light blue card base.

I die cut a banner from the silver paper and stamped with blue ink the sentiment Warmest Wishes.
Onto a white paper I stamped the cute bear and colored him with copics. I fussy cut and adhered near the sentiment!

I'll leave you the products' list below. Thank you so much and have a great day!

Sending Christmas Cheer

Hello CDD Fans!  DT Steph here today sharing a Christmas card I made using some brand new stamps and dies and some older stamps and dies.  How awesome was this latest product release?  I totally LOVED it!!  When I saw the new Across the Border stamp set this scene came to my mind and I just had to make it!  The lil reindeer in Holiday Helpers is one of my favorite stamps!

For the trail I used the Outdoor Landscape hill die, once die cut, I cut on the dash line since the dash lines were not on the same side of each opening. ( I know, confusing but it's hard to explain, sorry)  I stamped several rows of the stars in versamark ink and embossed in Gold Tinsel embossing powder, then blended Tim Holtz's distress ink in tumbled glass over the stars.  I made the background with Tim Holtz's distress inks and a blending tool, splattered with water and Perfect Pearls and added white dots with a white gel pen.  I colored Rudolph with Copic markers.

The Banner and the stars on the banner are from the new Pocket Pieces Hello Dies and the sentiment is from Simply Christmas stamp set, embossed in the same Gold Tinsel embossing powder.  I hope you enjoy! :)
