Christmas Wreath Tutorial

Hello friends! Today, I want to show you a very elegant and simple tutorial using a brand new die from Crafter's Companion  "Christmas Wreath" I think this die can be used to create frames, decorations, paints! just to mention a few.

So let's get started:

  •  Die-cut and emboss using the 3 colors of cardstock, here I used a half sheet of Candy Red, since I just needed the bow (Please save all the little and cute stars!)

This is the final card. I added few of the little stars around the wreath and card.Also 3 little pearls

Here you can see all the layers.

This week Crafter's Companion is celebrating its 7th Birtday!! Wonderful giveaways and amazing SALES!! Check out the website for details (free shipping, gifts and coupons!!)

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Mr & Mrs

Hello friends! Happy Wednesday to you all. Today I have a couple of super cute, clean and simple cards using dies from Top Dog Dies!

For this card I started creating the grass background with Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils. I die-cut the poodles in black and pink cardstock, then a bow in red and the banner in white cardstock, I used this brand new die Top Dog Dies Dog Days #2 set. I stamped the sentiment on the white banner in Jet Black Cardstock, I colored the bone with TN9 Spectrum Noir marker. I matted the banner with a red banner, this one is from Top Dog Dies Banners #1 set.
I added the pieces to front card, then added the bow to the black poodle and pearls around the pink poodle.

This second card was a lot easier to make. I started creating the background, I used the Top Dog Die Heart Border Die (save the little hearts from the die, they work perfect as little floating hearts) as a stencil, I placed it on the right side of my card and used gelatos, I wanted an uneven border, like the one you see here. Then I die-cut the Scooties in Red and Black cardstock from Top Dog Dies Dog Days #2 set and a bow in white cardstock. Created a little floor are with Spectrum Noir Blendable pencils, then added the doggies. The sentiment was stamped in Jet Black Archival, color the bone with Spectrum Noir marker and added to card front with foam adhesive. Finally, I added the few little hearts from the Heart Border Die

I am submitting these cards to:
These are the dies used in my projects:
