Sparkle & Shine!

Hello! Hope you are having a good week!

I wanted to share some cards I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges at Splitcoast using the Sparkle & Cheer stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions. It’s always fun to see a stamp set used in more than one way… so here are three different ways for you.

The background for all my cards was made from one sheet of watercolor paper. I tapped ink pads (Ranger Distress Rusty Hinge & Vintage Photo & Memento Bahama Blue) onto a craft sheet, misted with water and then pressed my watercolor paper into the wet ink. I let my paper dry and then repeated the process. I splattered a little pink and white paint and smeared on just a teeny bit of Stickles before the last layer dried. HYCCT1420 Sparkle Jeanne_Streiff

Snowlady Treat Bag

I am having so much fun with the Sack It to You die sets from Taylored Expressions that I have another project to share. This time I used the Sack It – Snowman accessory dies and the new Embossing Folder – Zig Zag to make this sweet snowlady with a fancy hat.

I started by cutting Sugar Cube cardstock (you need 2 for the bag) with the Sack It To You die. Assemble your bag.Snowlady Sackit 1 Jeanne_Streiff

Next I die cut all the parts. I used Marshmallow Felt for the hat band.Snowlady Sackit 2 Jeanne_Streiff

I used the Zig Zag Embossing folder on the hat. Here is my hat assembled. I added a button to the hat band (I sponged all of my pieces with Vintage Photo ink before assembly).Snowlady Sackit 4 Jeanne_Streiff

Here is a closer look. I had these cute googly eyes in my stash. I have no idea where they came from. I think they were just waiting for this project. Snowlady Sackit close Jeanne_Streiff
