Beautiful Blizzard Snowflake Hug Card

Today’s card features the Beautiful Blizzard bundle (Beautiful Blizzard stamp set and Blizzard Thinlits Die) and the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF.) I used Sparkle Glimmer Paper and Shimmery White card stock (CS) to add to the glittery wonder of winter snow. The sentiment is perfect for anyone you love, or like enough to send a hug. 

Here’s what I made:

Blended Seasons Wedding Card

The Blended Seasons bundle (Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies) really does work all year, and for multiple occasions. I used it to make today’s card, meant for a wedding, but it could also be used to wish someone well when they’re moving away, retiring, or beginning any new adventure. The background paper is from the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, which is meant for Christmas, but can obviously be used for other things. 

Scroll down to the bottom of this post for details on the Blended Seasons bundle, and the second assortment of Watercolor Pencils, available only until August 31, or while supplies last.

Here’s what I made:

Falling for Leaves for IRBH

Welcome to the InKing Royalty Blog Hop for August! For today’s card, I used a brand new bundle from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Falling For Leaves (Falling For Leaves stamp set and Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies.) There are some spectacular images in this bundle. I used one of the simplest ones today. Don’t you just love sneak peeks?

This year’s IRBH themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Dog Days Are Over.” You can hear the song at the bottom of this post. While we still feel the heat from a long, hot summer, August is a perfect time of year to start planning our Fall-themed cards. The projects in our hop will showcase Autumn, back-to-school and warm colors – you might even see a dog or two! We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

 

Here’s what I made:
