Divinity Designs December 2020 Release

Happy Friday my friends!  I've come to the end of my time as a guest designer for Divinity Designs.  I want say how very honored I am to have been asked by Kelley Holland to guest design! Thank you Kelley!  I've loved using her beautiful products and I hope you will be sure to check them out, if you haven't already!

Now onto my cards!  This first card uses the gorgeous Mandala Layering Combo die set.  I've used just the top layer of the die to create a shaker card.  I love the versatility of this set!

I used the pretty patterned paper from the Shine Bright paper pad and die cut it with the largest Pierced Rectangle die.  Then I die cut the base layer of the Mandala for my window opening in the center of the panel.  Then I die cut the Mandala top layer twice, once from gold card stock and a second time from white card stock.  I adhered the layers together for some dimension.  I created the shaker in the usual way and adhered the Mandala on top of the window.

The sentiment is from the Keep Christ in Christmas stamp set and I heat embossed it in gold.  I die cut it with a Pierced Rectangle die.  I added some gems to the mandala for more sparkle!

My second card was very easy and quick to make.  I only used one of the cute bear stamps from the Beary Christmas set this time.  After I stamped and Copic colored it, I used the included coordinating die to cut it out.  I die cut the Birch Background twice and adhered the layers together.  I added it to a piece of white glitter paper.  I hand cut the hill for the bears to slide down on from the same glitter paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beary Christmas set in coordinating ink.  I trimmed it into a banner shape and layered it on white glitter paper.

For my final card, I used the adorable Snowbirds stamp set and coordinating dies (that are included).

I used the A2 Portrait Card Base die to create my top folding card.  Then I die cut two Pierced Rectangles from white card stock.  On the smaller one I blended on Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink.  I splattered on Perfect Pearls, some white ink spray, and glitter spray!  I wish you could see the sparkle that shows in real life!

I Copic colored the birds, die cut them with their coordinating dies, and popped them up with foam squares onto a glittery hill.  The sentiment is stamped with Faded Jeans Oxide ink and die cut with a Pierced Rectangle.

I hope you've enjoyed my cards using Divinity Designs beautiful sets!  Be sure to check out all their other amazing products.  Thank you all for stopping by!
