I thought I would make a "quick" card, meaning it wouldn't take long to make. Well, that was a challenge because I had to find a background stamp I wanted, the Catherine Pooler products I wanted to use, and find the darn glitter paper I wanted to use! I have a bunch of it, but I could not find it even now! That being said, once the materials were found and decided upon, I believe this card could be make very quickly! I started with the background. Watching a Jennifer McGuire video today, I used her technique for it. I blended three blue distress oxide inks on white cardstock then spritzed a background stamp with water and stamped it on the inked cardstock. It leaves a soft impression and looks almost velvety. I then die cut the frame, sentiment, and snowflakes as well as the background and adhered them onto the background. I wish I could have captured the sparkle from the glitter paper. It's so pretty!

Hi friends! The new Time Out challenge is our theme challenge, and the theme is festivals.
This is the first card I made. It's a trifold card...the JOY word folds down and the main panel folds up. The main panel was stenciled with a Trinity Stamps stencil in green and red as well as black for the strings. You can see the shimmer on the word die cut better on this one than in the first photo.
You can see more from the Time Out design team on the Time Out blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hey friends! Happy Halloween!
It's the 5th week of October which means it's Wild Card Week over at Just Us Girls. Angie is the hostess and chose to use Word Die-Cuts. Easy peasy!
I just purchased this cute Thanksgiving gnome at my LSS yesterday. He's so cute! There are two others in the set, so I'll be making lots of Thanksgiving cards. I started by stamping him and coloring him with copic markers then die cut him with the coordinating die. Then I used a fall leaves layering stencil to create the background using several distress oxide inks. For the challenge, I die cut the sentiment three times and stacked them for dimension. I also die cut two rectangles from brown cardstock as well the stenciled background. I added shimmer to the word and gnome and copper crystals.
