Camouflaging Diecuts

For this week's Make it Monday, I decided to pull out my favorite Butterfly die.  I used Sweet Blush, Lavender Moon and Plum Pudding to create my background.  Then I took my Background Basic Polka Dots and stamped the whole background with Sweet Blush.  

I cut the top layer with the cutout butterfly, and used the solid one for my bottom layers.  The sentiment is from Fancy That, and I finished the card with small pink sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tab Closure Tri-fold card

Took a little break from Christmas cards today, to make a Thank you card using this week's Make it Monday.  I pulled out Frilly Flowers for my card...

I partially cut the largest die and then stamped my first layer in harvest gold. You can't see, but the two longest petals are tucked into slits in the card base. Then I layered the next two flowers and added in some leaves made with Aqua Mist.  My patterned paper is Lavender Moon and it's on the inside as well. 

Thanks for looking!

Make it Monday Glittered Frames

Today I took a break from my own Christmas cards, to do a Make it Monday one.  I don't know about you, but it seems I haven't had time to just play with my stamps and paper!  So using Dawn's video, and some jewel tone inspiration, I made this one...

I used White Shimmer and Brushed Gold cardstock, and my frame uses some soft purple glitter on a Royal Velvet base.  It just shines in real life!  I used some Spring Moss ink on the leaves and for the center of the poinsettia. The final touch is a dot of gold beads.  The sentiment is from Rustic Wreath and is embossed with white EP.

Thanks for looking! Hope your Christmas preparations are going well......
