joy to you

Here’s another card I found playing catch-up. This one I made last year using a Paper Pumpkin kit. At the time, I thought the card needed something so I added an image from my Joy To The World stamp set.

Just popping in with a card I made quite a while ago! I am finding several pics on my computer that I haven’t shared (some from 2015!).  I think for the next couple weeks I will try to play catch-up. We’ll see how that goes!

a very dairy Christmas

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a couple cards using the Dairy Christmas Set (4789) .  I think this first one is my fave… how fun is that joyous cow?  I gave it a simple water-colored background and used some Copics to dot the festive scarf.

hedgie hi

Good morning!

Today I am sharing this card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the Furry Friends and Chunky Alpha stamp sets.

hedgie hi diane zechman

I don’t remember where I saw a card with a similar sketch, but I love it!  I think it will quickly become one of my “go-to” sketches.  This hedgie is quite cute…I masked him and stamped the stump below so he had a resting place.  Then I chose a patterned paper with a sort-of “woodsy” feel to go with him.

If you like the sketch too, here you go…

panda slider

Hello friends!

The current Ai Challenge is “Slide on By” …and we are featuring three new super cute Slider Sets (to use with the Slider Die) plus two new Stackers Sets (which also coordinate with the Slider Die)! 

Here I used the Panda Slider Set (4801) to create a cloud shaped card.

panda slider 1 diane zechman

I love making shaped cards and thought he’d be cute on a big cloud so I kept my card base and slider pieces all white.  I did add a smaller patterned paper cloud, though, for a whimsical accent.  Part of the plane was paper pieced with some matching paper.  The little “hi” is a cute die included in this set (there’s also a balloon)!

When the slider piece is pulled, the plane slides across the card and reveals the sentiment.

I just quickly sketched my cloud card and cut it by hand.  Here’s the pattern if you would like to make one too.  Click on the photo and then right click to save.

gilded Santa frame

Hello friends!

The current Ai Challenge is “’Prep for Christmas” …and we are featuring the new Christmas Clear Sets!  Plus…Ai and Thermoweb are participating in a product swap so be sure to check out the DT samples this week and read below for a chance to win one of two grand prizes!

Here I used the Merriest Christmas Set (4790) and some vintage looking papers to create my card.  I also used some Gold Deco Foil and the Foil Adhesive Pen to give my image a “gilded” framed edge. 

gilded santa frame diane zechman

I originally stamped the Santa with black ink but then I didn’t think it would look much like the gilded era if I colored him with Copics..lol.. so I flipped it over (as we stampers do! ha!) and stamped him again with a dark red ink.  I could have added strips of adhesive tape to the edges of my image, but I wanted them to be sort of imperfect…so I used the glue pen around the edges and pressed the foil onto the glue.

foiled bow

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the new Christmas Wreath Set (4791) and the little candy cane image from Merriest Christmas Set (4790) .  We are also still participating in a product swap with Thermoweb and here I’ve used the Red Deco Foil along with the Foam Adhesive Sheet to create a foiled bow.

foil bow 2 diane zechman

Can you see how shiny those bows are? The foil is super easy to use with the foam!  I simply die cut the bow from the foam sheet and applied the foil. Easy peasy.  Then I stamped over the red foil with black Stazon ink.  The clear stamp makes it super simple to line up.
