Merry Christmas with Circle Dies

Look Ma, no stamps! That's right! I didn't use a single stamp on today's card. That doesn't happen too often. This week, the Stampendous team is sharing creations that are "To Die For," that is, projects that use some of their wonderful dies. My card today is easy to create, and you have the ability to get a lot of cards out of it once you're done die cutting. You can check out my full instructions below.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
CSD21: Christmas Bright
DCP1007: Build A Wreath Die Set
MPW811: Mixed Media White Cardstock

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Classic Cherry, Spanish Moss, Desert Cactus, Brown Eyes
Neenah: Desert Storm Cardstock
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
Washi Tape (will not show)
Ranger: Walnut Stain Distress Ink

Directions:
1. Tape the circle dies from the Build a Wreath Set, spaced evenly apart, with washi tape.

2. Die cut the circle dies 1 time for each color, so in this case, 5 times. Be sure to keep the washi tape on the dies to ensure that the circles will all fit together later.

3. Separate all of the circles and reform them together, using each color only once per grouping.

4. Attach the circles together on the back with washi tape.

5. Cut one of the reformed circles in half.

6. Create the card base out of Desert Storm cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

7. Ink the edges in a circular motion with a foam dauber and Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

8. Die cut "Merry" out of Brown Eyes cardstock.

9. Die cut "Christmas" out of Spanish Moss cardstock.

10. Attach all layers with EZ Runner adhesive.

That's it for me today. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see what the rest of the team has been die cutting. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…

Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…
