Hi I don't seem to be able to keep up with homework...probably because I have that Simon Says Stamp Falling snow stencil in my head...not in my stash. I was going to order it last year but didn't. Now I just seem to want falling snow on my cards. I ordered it Monday in the wee hours and it arrived today!
First up is my Day 4 homework, a one layer card. I followed Jennifer McGuire's example.
I used a circle die from My Favorite things, and a Tree die from Hero Arts that had a matching stamp. After making my die cuts, I stamped the tree, and the sentiment. Next opening the card, I created a blue sky with Salty Ocean Distress Ink, and added some lovely falling snow with embossing paste and some Distress Glitter in Rock Candy. I loved making this card, and I anticipate making 2 or three more from my holiday card stash.
Next up is day 5 homework, some tags. I rarely make tags, so this was definitely an exercise. My simple tag is simply a cut out with some patterned paper sandwiched between two tag die cuts. My second tag is a shaker tag, on reflection, it probably would be better with a colored background for the shaker bits. I filled it with glass glitter in clear, silver micro-beads, and a few small sequins. The stamps were from Stampin Up and Simon Says Stamps. The die cut is from Hero Arts, and the twine is Lawn Fawn.
