I did several variations of these two cards - had a lot of fun with this owl set (it's an older Hero Arts Christmas set), and the SSS Small Forest Tree die turned on it's side. The background is done with distress ink and the stars are cut with the SSS Holiday Shapes die and covered with Stickles.
This card is the one I made for a swap we did. I was really pleased with the way it turned out - bright and cheery. I stamped the Lawnfawn Chevron Backdrop stamp several times with different Hero Arts neon inks for the background. The sentiment and cupcake are from the Hero Arts/Sizzix Happy Birthday Cupcake stamp and die set.
These cards are a just a couple of the ones I made while I played around with the Hero Arts/BasicGrey Poinsettia stamp from the Apen Frost collection. I colored it with Distress Markers, and then spritzed with water and perfect pearls, and stamped on water color paper. I added a little bit of Stickles to some of the flowers and used several different sentiments.
And last, but not least, I played around with some Glitter Ritz glitter. That stuff is amazing! Once you put it on, it doesn't come off, and feels like velvet almost. I love the shine you get with it! The cardinal is an Elizabeth Craft sticker that I used the Glitter Ritz on. I also used some of her ornament stickers with the Glitter Ritz, but those haven't made it to cards yet.
Thanks again for stopping by.
