Happy Sunday, crafty friends! I hope you've had a wonderful weekend so far. Yesterday I moderated comments during the Pinkfresh Studio section of the SSBE @home event with The Stamping Village on Facebook (it was also on YouTube - Kinnari moderated those comments). We have a show special going on through October 23rd, so be sure to check out event to be inspired, learn some ways to use your crafty products & get the details on our show special! Our section starts at about 2 hours and 22 minutes in on FB, but I would suggest if you are having a lazy, crafty day to just cast the event to your screen and watch the whole thing. There was TONS of inspiration from all our friends at The Stamping Village.
After moderating my section of the event, I had a really lazy crafting day. I LOVE days where I basically work on a project throughout the whole day, stopping to hang out with my hubby, run an errand here & there, and just craft at my leisure. Recently I received an email from Spellbinders, asking me to create a project with the Season's Greetings Deer die set. This is a die set that was one of their kits a couple years ago, but because it was so highly requested, they decided to release it again. They asked if I wanted to create a card to celebrate it's re-release, and I gladly said YES! I actually own this die set, but had never gotten around to using it. So I am very happy to be able to use it, and have it be available if you are wanting to add it to your crafting arsenal. :)
Noel Doe card
This card is pretty much all diecutting! And while it can be time consuming to cut out all the pieces, it's something that I find strangely peaceful and I don't mind doing it. Especially when it comes out this cute! I started by diecutting all the pieces I needed from the Season's Greetings Deer die set. I also cut all the pieces needed from the Festive Noel die set as well. I diecut the patterned paper background from the Christmas Wishes card kit with the Essential Rectangles die set, then assembled everything. I layered it all to the card front, popping a lot of it up with foam tape. I accented with the jewels that are in the Christmas Wishes card kit to finish.
Season's Greetings buck card
This card was done much the same as the first! Just leisurely diecutting from scrap pieces of cardstock, and some patterned paper. The background on this card is from the Winter Wishes paper pack from Spellbinders, which I don't see as available any longer. No sweat though, you can use any plaid or neutral paper you might have on hand. By the way, die sets like this are perfect for using up cardstock scraps. ;)
That is everything I have for you today! Before you move along with your day, I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media before you move on with your day. I would love to be crafty friends online!
