For my first project I used the fun GOBBLE GOBBLE stamp. This adorable image also has a matching die.
I kept my card design simple and used circle dies to create a window for my cute turkey. I included one of the sets sentiments and added a few delicious GUM DROPS (apricot). To create depth to my turkey I stamped the image twice. I coloured the tail feathers in the back ground layer. Then coloured the body on the second image, fussy cutting and adhering the top layer with dimensional adhesive.
Inside my card I stamped my turkey image and added additional sentiments from this set.
For my second project I created a card that is not my usual style. Why is that you ask?
No coloured images! I know crazy right? I do surprise myself once in a while.
For this card I used the SPOOKTACULAR sentiment set called GHOSTLY GREETING and the new amazing CHEVRON DIE.
On the outside of my card I worked with the negative space created by the die. I added a pop of green card stock that I covered in Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter. My die cut layer is adhered to the card with dimensional adhesive. On this card I used the black GUMDROPS.
Inside my card I used the chevron die cut on the green card stock which I again covered with glitter. How did I do this you ask? Run the pieces through your Xyron Sticker maker, cover with glitter, shake off the excess and burnish the glitter into the paper well and voila!
To finish off, I added an additional sentiment and sweet spider from the new HALLOWEEN CUTIES set.
