Hello! Hope your week is off to a good start. Mine is... I got to make a few cards, lol! Lately I have been really into buying dies. In fact my last few purchases have been mainly dies from Simon Says Stamp. Two of my most recent purchases are the Marie snowflake die and the Eucalyptus Leaves dies. When I saw them used on several different cards I just had to get them. They sold out rather quickly when they were first released, but I was finally able to get them during SSS' Black Friday sale. They were on my mind when I saw that the new Paper Players challenge was a color one and when an idea sprang to mind I had to try it out. I must say that I love the end result! I die cut the Marie Snowflake from light blue cardstock and the Eucalyptus Leaves from silver and kraft cardstock. I then adhered the two larger eucalyptus stems (one silver, one kraft) together, trimmed off part of the stem from one of them and adhered them to a piece of woodgrain cardstock that I had die cut with a rectangle die. I then adhered the two smaller stems (one silver, one kraft) so that they were layered on top of the snowflake. I then die cut a second snowflake from the light blue cardstock and adhered it to the back of the first one to get it a little more stability. The snowflake was then layered on top of the larger stems. I had the sentiment Merry Christmas that I had foiled in gold using my Glimmer so I decided to cut it apart, trim it down and then adhere it to the panel as you see. I finished off the card by adding some light blue sequins from Simon Says Stamp and lots of tiny sparkly clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Once dry the panel was adhered to a light gray cardstock base. Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of traditional Christmas, as well as the Paper Players and Simon Says Stamp flickr challenge. Decided to add this to the current Time Out challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wondeful day!
