|word dies by Simon Says Stamp, scalloped circle die by Spellbinders, embossing folder by The Paper Studio, and glitter sticker purchased at Hobby Lobby|
Just trying to use up some random stickers. This looks really weird on screen, maybe because of all the reflection coming from the card, but it does look better in real life.

Anything Goes Challenge
Spotlight- Lawn Fawn
Nothing makes the mistakes on a card SCREAM like putting them on your blog does. At least I can sit here and make notes to go back and make the fixes.
I didn't know I'd be posting these when I made them, so I didn't keep up with what stamp sets I used, sorry.

Welcome to the next challenge in the Operation Write Home 4th of July Virtual Card Making Party 2014. It's Christmas in July, and our theme for this segment of the party is a Red, White & Blue Christmas. We are aiming for a little earlier deadline for Christmas cards this year at OWH, so now is a good time to "get going" on them.

Here are a few of the cards I've made
|Digi-stamp by Dover Publication colored with Copic Markers|
other stamps used (holly & sentiment) are by Lawn Fawn and I used a touch of Glossy Accents
|Paper Piecing using (retired) stamps and dies by Stampin' Up, The branch is an Impression Obsession die & the embossing folder is by The Paper Studio|
|Simple Stamping with wet, & a small touch of dry embossing|
|Sizzix embossing folder, various punches and dies used|
|Using up some scraps|
when you make a card for someone, do you make it to reflect the recipient's personality or your own personality?
I'm looking so forward to seeing what you create for our Red, White & Blue Christmas challenge.

Spellbinders aren't just for cutting...........
ScrapbookPal is hosting another contest and this time it's for using Spellbinders.
|Spellbinder dies used: Classic Rectangles|
Stamp set used: "Luv Bunnies" by Stampendous
My card was very simple, yet fun & pretty quick to make and probably doesn't need explanation, but the contest says give instructions, so here goes......
The card is an A2 size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") so, for the embossed panel I used a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" white cardstock which is just slightly smaller than the card base and I carefully placed the 2 Spellbinders rectangle dies in a "frame" configuration and secured them w/ low tack tape. Before running it through the Cuttlebug, I used an embossing mat and rather than cut the pieces, I only embossed them leaving a nice frame. The little bunny was stamped on a smaller rectangle which I popped up with dimensional tape. The small flowers and hearts were fussy cut and glued on the panel using Tombow Multi liquid glue. Copic markers were used for the coloring.
Smile and the world smiles with you
