Belle & I were out & about early on our walk this morning.  In fact, it was still dark when we left home, but by the time we hit the beach, I was struck with the most amazing sunrise with the sun just starting to appear.  Can I just say, most days the sunrise is amazing but some more so than others.

As I sat down to create my card, I knew I wanted to try & capture the image into my card.  I think I have!

The circle was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies before being embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  To create the scene, the images were stamped onto a piece of Bsaic White Cardstock before being adhered to the back of the circle.

The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.

Stamp Set – Oceanfront, Inspired Thoughts

Inks – Memento Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral

I randomly selected a piece of the lovely Simply Marblevous Paper – Level 1 from Sale-a-Bration & then had to decide what colours to use so I opted for Garden Green & Gorgeous Grape.

The DSP was randomly chopped into 3 pieces before adhering to a piece of the Gorgeous Grape Cardstock ensuring that the patterns match in & leaving a small amount of Gorgeous Grape around all sides.  This layer was then adhered to a Garden Green Base Card.

The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, stamped onto Basic White in Garden Green Ink & die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

The larger butterfly from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set was stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink, die cut with the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies bfeore being adhered to the left side of the sentiment.

The 2 little buttterflies have been die cut from Blushing Bride Cardstock with Nature’s Thoughts Dies before being randomly adhered to the card front.

The card has been finished off with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Now onto today’s card!

It is one I created during our 12 Days of Christmas – #12daysofchristmas – over in our World Card Making Fb Group.  We have just finished the 12 days & all in time for Christmas.

This is a fun technique that the lovely Annette from the Stampin with the Bees shared with us where we played with our White Craft Ink.  I haven’t played with this fun technique for so long & it was great to see how the White looked on our cards.

To create my simple & easy card, I dragged the White Craft ink over a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock, let it dry before adhering it to a Thick Basic White Card Base.

I then adhered a snowflake from the Wonderful Snowflakes Embellishments to the Card Front with a Mini Glue Dot.  I tied a large bow from the Silver Twine prior to adhering it to the centre of the snowflake with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Night of Navy Ink, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered over the bow & snowflake with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

To complete the card I randomly adhered Sequins from the Subtle Shimmer Sequins to the Card Front.

Easy peasy, right?

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Manly Monday with Nature’s Harvest

Can you believe how fast Mondays come round?

My card today is one I created for a challenge in a FB Group – CASE-ing Tuesday

This time it was the 2021 July-December Catalogue, P30.

I decided to try & create a male card, although it could be for male or female.

I’ve used the lovely Harvest Meadow DSP for my strips.  They were adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla & then to a Misty Moonlight Base Card.A piece of the same DSP was chopped before being adhered over the top of the strips with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The reeds were die cut with the Harvest Dies in Misty Moonlight prior to being adhered to the DSP panel.  The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, stamped in Bumblebee Ink onto Very Vanilla, trimmed back to size & shape & adhere to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
