I just love this new gate stamp set!!!! I dream that is my entry gate in front of my Victorian house. I stamped the sentiment and the gate from the new stamp set called "The Gate" onto glossy white card stock. Say that three times fast!  I fussy cut this out and layered it on top of a label die cut which I stamped with the sentiment. I layered these pieces on top of the new Gilded Gate Die cuts. I cut them apart and did some layering with the die cuts. I cut a white card base 4.5x12 inches and folded at 6 inches so that the finished card measures 4.5x 6 inches. I trimmed down paper from the ODBD Chalkboard collection and mounted it on the card base. I then cut two white doilies. I cut one in half and placed it on the chalkboard paper so that it looked like one large doily and spanned the width of the paper as seen in the photo. I then cut four corners from the other die cut and placed them on the corners of the designer paper. I then placed the gate layers on top of the central doily to hide the gap of the two doily pieces. Add in some dimensional foam, black bling and white ribbon to add finishing touches!
These are the ODBD products used to create this card. Click on the images below to find the web pages for these products:
Many design team members did a stellar job at using this sled image from the new Let it Snow Stamp set. It's a real beauty! My version was stamped onto glossy card stock and colored with alcohol markers. The ground and sky were added using dye ink and a colorbox sponge tipped applicator by layering on colors. The snowflakes, highlights and piles of snow were added with  a white gel pen and then I used a glossy clear spray to seal the piece. Fine white glitter was added on bits of snow for shine and sparkle! I just love using glitter on snow for a festive feel! I mounted the image on a piece of blue designer paper from the new Patriotic collection.
I used blue pearlescent card stock as my card base cut at 5.5x11 inches and folded in half for a square card. I took another piece of paper from the Patriotic collection and cut it slightly smaller than the card base. I added 5/8 inch twill tape across the card so that it looked like ribbon on a package. I took a large doily die cut and cut out the center using another of the dies from the same set. I scored and folded the doily to get a small rosette and added an embossed snowflake from the Ornate Borders and Flower stamp set. I cut it out with the coordinating die and topped the rosette. I dug around in my stash of brads for the white snowflake to top it all off. The Let it Snow tag was made by using white embossing powder and light blue ink. I used the new Mini Tags Dies to cut the tag and then I sponged it with blue ink while the die was still attached to the tag. This left a nice white border. I absolutely love all of the mini tag dies in this set! I know they will get a lot of use!!!

Andrea D. La Vigne said...

Lovely cards! Neat idea to use the gate piece to cover the gap between the doily halves--no one know if you didn't tell them. And the sled card just resonates vintage Christmas joy. Love the addition of the snow with your white pen, and your coloring plays off the patterned paper really well. Thanks so much for sharing these!
