Double D - 12 Days of Christmas 1-6

Dear Ones~
What a fun challenge we have this time over at Double D. We are looking at the 12 Days of Christmas, but just days 1-6. Here is a Mood Board for inspiration:


And here is my card:
So I chose Two Turtle Doves. Here I used the plaid background because I loved the vintage look of the plaid with the doves. The images are cut from some Graphic 45 patterned paper called, appropriately enough, The 12 Days of Christmas. I used the Paper Tole Technique by fussy cutting various segments of the images and layering them for dimension. It was so fun and something I have not done for a very long time.

Here are the Ingredients:
*Stampin' Up Cajun Craze Card Stock
*Recollections Cream Card Stock
*Stash Gold Foil Card Stock
*Stampin' Up Detailed Bands Die
*Graphic 45 12 Days of Christmas 
Patterned Paper
*Stampin' Up Layering Ovals Dies

Double D - Silhouettes

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D the theme is SILHOUETTES. How fun!!! Just look at the Mood Board provided for our inspiration:

 

And here is my card:
I just adore this old stamp set by Close to my Heart. I have not used it in a very long time. To make the background I cut a circle and masked off the moon. Then I sponged the sky with Distress Inks. After the sky was finished, I removed the moon mask and applied the background mask to expose the circle so I could sponge the color for the moon. The silhouette images were heat embossed with black embossing powder, and for a final touch I splattered Copic Opaque Ink to create stars.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Black Onyx, White and Ivory Card Stock
Distress Inks in:
Tumbled Glass
Salty Ocean
Chipped Saphire
Dusty Concord
Black Soot
CTMH Nature's Gift
GKD Masking Magic
Copic Opaque Ink
