What cookies? ||Stephanie aka Miss NiceRoad


Hey, all!
I'm finally back with some Christmas card inspiration! I can't help it, with Santa's coming, I was in great need of a cookie star card!

Thanks to today's card, I wanted to share a fun tip outlining dies. With so many great dies in store, I find it nice to reinvent how to layer them or make them pop onto projects. So, to match my adorable What Cookies? image from the Saturated Canary  line (that is on SALE right now!!!), I selected some new Holiday dies, such as Cheer - Word and the Hope ornament one, that were going to be die-cut once from teal glitter cardstock, and then die-cut again from... wait for it... vellum paper! 


The idea came to me when I knew I wanted to do another layer, so to make the glitter die-cut pop, but I didn't want anything to shadow it, either. Therefore, using vellum helped me get that soft look, without being too bold. It's like it's there, but not really there, right?


After doing this step, I took out the big guns and created a 4¼"x5½" cardbase from dark brown cardstock, onto which I layered a few scraps from a recent project made with the gorgeous Winter Land - 6x6 Paper Pack in store. After colouring the image with my Copic markers, I die-cut it with the Fancy Rectangles & Layers Die Set (that is ALSO on sale!), added it to the card with foam tabs, a few flowers and enamel dots.



Oh and those flowers? They are from I Am Roses of course! I just love the quality of each bud and rose from their store, seriously. For this project, I selected flowers that would match the paperpad without being too flashy. After all, I had enough glitter on there already!
 Here are the ones I used:



Voilà, project done! And I think it is fair to say that I have once more attempted successfully at refurbishing a fun stamp into something Christmas-y! Oh and make sure to try doubling those gorgeous dies with vellum paper! ;-)

Winter is bright +video tutorial || Stephanie aka MissNiceRoad


Hi, guys!
Stephanie with you today for I Am Roses to share about a special project using gorgeous ornaments and some amazing flowers!


I don't know about you, but I'm already late to the party with my Christmas cards, so I better hurry up. And what better than to use my favourite products! I know, I know, I didn't use traditional Christmas tones... because, why not, right?!



The new Winter Land paperpack at LDRS Creative has some really great sheets with gold and silver ornaments (Peace Ornament Die SetHope Ornament Die SetGrace Ornament Die Set),  so I decided to be inspired by it, although I went using a simpler pattern in order to focus on bright glittery details. It is honestly the perfect complement to this gorgeous Chill stamp from the Dollhouse collection.



I can't believe how awesome it looks, with the Bright - Word Die! And may I just say how AWESOME the new border dies are?! Really, the fact that there are both a detailed one and a more basic one makes it SO worth it! I created half of my card with the Snowy Day Border Die Set, and then added the image on top of two layers of the new Holly Wreath Circle Die Set



Want to see how I was able to reuse the same paper on two layers without throwing anything away? See my entire cardmaking process in this short video (right here on blog or in HD on my  Youtube channel).

I also show you how to slightly alter your white paper flowers from I Am Roses with mists for a perfect match :-)



Here are the flowers I used from the store:
Until next time, xxx
