STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Giveaway

You have many chances to enter the giveaway by visiting and leaving comments at each STAMPlorations Girl’s blog and linking up your projects. The winners will be announced on December 10 in the November winners post at STAMPlorations blog.

For this blog hop, I made this CAS Thankful Card using:

This card is very simple and quick to make. I started with I taped the stencil directly on the kraft card using washi tapes. And then, lightly I added the white pigment ink on it with oval blending brush. After that, I removed the stencil. I added some gold watercolor ink splatters on the card with fan brush. I flicked the paint very lightly to get fine and small splatters. I dried the background card with the craft heater.

I printed the digital stamp on white cardstock and then I dried the printer ink with craft heater. I colored it with watercolor paints and waterbrush. After coloring, I dried the watercolor paint with craft heater and then I fussy cut it with scissors. I added the bucket of apple image on the card with permanent adhesive runner glue.

I cut a piece of white cardstock with the word die and I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

That’s my Thanksgiving Card and I hope you all like it, too. You all can visit STAMPlorations Blog to see more inspiration from the STAMPlorations Girls.

Kicking off this blog hop, I made this Christmas Cup of Cheer. I know Christmas is just around the corner. I made this card today using supplies from these Super Sponsors:

I printed the background on a white cardstock with Epson Laser Jet Printer and then I trimmed in into 4.25 inch x 5.5 inch.

I pre-heated the laminating machine. I trimmed the foil sheet slightly bigger than the printed background. I put them inside the carrier sheet and run it through the laminating machine.

For the coffee mug, I printed it on the watercolor paper with Laser Jet Printer. I heat-embossed the snowflake in the middle of the mug with embossing powder twice for extra thickness. And then, I colored it with watercolor pencils and water brush.

After coloring, I dried the whole image with craft heater and then fussy cut it with scissors. I added the image on top of the card with fun foam and adhesive runner.
