With the negative die (from die-cutting), I used it as a stencil and applied the inks with the new small Blending Tools (a must-have!).

Once I inked up all the tinny spots, I adhered the white dies over and that's it! How easy and effective to use this gorgeous Festive Clusters Die Set.
 
Feature products #2: Warm Heart Stamp Set (and Mighty Corner Stencil)

 This heart-warming image reminds me of the "March of the Penguin" movie (2005).  Of course, I had to stamp multiple penguins as the background. This was easy to do with a cut out (of the penguins) for masking.

I then popped up the focal point (must get the coordinating penguin die!!) and voila!

Feature products #3: Birch Forest Stamp Set (and Season's Tweetings)

Altenew-Birch Forest Stamp Set-Season's Tweetings-Create-a-Wreath Die Set 
You can never go wrong with white-embossing images like this. And that's exactly what I did. I added some gradient to the blue in and it is so stunning against tall the birch white trees!

Then I stamped the SWEET Cardinals from Season's Tweetings. I also stamped music notes from Happy Birthday to you Stamp Set (LOVE that set). The Create a Wreath Die was perfect to showcase the cardinal.

Lastly, my two favorite things for embellishments: Satin White sequins and Metallic Silver Thread.

l am in love with your cardinal and penguin cards. The penguin card is just so sweet! Love how you colored the background with the birch trees. That is one beautiful card.

You must be done with your Christmas cards by now. These are particularly stunning. Those penguins are a delight, the cardinal looks amazing against that background and I just love how you've used the floral diecuts.

I really loved your soft coloring behind the Festive Clusters die, and I love your arrangement on that card. I also loved how you stamped the penguins and just highlighted the one penguin duo in the center, and I love the different teals you colored above that penguin duo. I also liked your cardinal singing in the birch forest. -- Margaret Roder

All 3 of your cards are wonderful! I love the penguin card with the background. The forest card is such a wonderful background to the bird, and the music staff is so creative a perch for it. And the 1st floral card is so perfectly pastel and lovely!

Teri S. said...

Virginia, your cards just keep getting better & better! I adore the Penguin stamp & the way you've brought the one forward from the others which are paler in the background looks great. I also really like the layout you chose for the Birch Trees having the red bird popped up on the front in the oval. Just wonderful.
